Ladies Night Out: A Fun Time Had By All!

shoes_iaec1072157Joined our good friend and giggle partner Cassandra of Active Mom’s Club @ “Fleet Feet” Pipers Alley for a “Mom’s and Mom’s to be Night Out” . It was a great night to check out some new Spring workout wear, do a little shopping and talk, talk, talk about all things Mom and Baby !

In between the delicious snacks and the  topic of laundering (!) I found the ultimate flip flop….Yes I know we’re NOT supposed to actually do anything but walk on the beach but I think you’ll love these, they actually have a lot of support.  You bake them in the oven and then stand in them to take the shape of your feet ….that’s right “easy bake flip flops” ! !  They’re the Molokini Flip by Montrail.

Just in time for the summer !
