Freshen up your pedicure and get readywp to FLIP for our next giveaway, courtesy of Lindsay Phillips, a local “mompreneur” whose signature SwitchFlops are a national sensation! Since high school, Lindsay has been designing functional flops with colorful straps, each adorned with a unique button. Over the years, her idea evolved into a shoe with an interchangeable design: one shoe with many straps and unlimited style choices! SwitchFlops made their retail debut in January 2007 at the Surf Expo Trade Show in Orlando where they were showcased as a new and innovative product. Orders started rolling in, explosive growth followed and, today Lindsay’s venture is now a leader for custom flip flops and shoes, with a growing lineup of bags and scarves.

{Giveaway} Take a Break with Panera Bread

We’re celebrating the launch of Orlando Moms Blog all week with some amazing giveaways! Check back with us later today and all week!


Our first giveaway needs no real introduction…Orlando Moms Blog loves Panera Bread! We’ve brainstormed for hours in their booths, both for the blog and Babyourself and we’re certain neither would exist if not for their tasty baked goods and bottomless cups of coffee!

Panera is also one of our favorite “mommy + child date night” locations. A huge chopped salad for mom, melty grilled cheese and organic yogurt for the kids, plus a warm chocolate chip cookie to split – what could be better?

To celebrate our launch, we’re excited to offer not one, but two lucky readers a $25 gift card to Panera! Enter below now through Friday, Sept. 6. Winners will be notified via email.

Welcome to Orlando Moms Blog

Making friends as an adult is hard. Making friends after you have kids, and in an area as widespread as Central Florida is even harder. There. I said it.

I don’t know what it is, but for me, it seemed like after having my daughter, I lost all ability to interact in social situations. If I saw a momma at the park with a child close in age to my daughter, I felt desperate to talk to her (Another adult! Who communicates with words and won’t drool on me!) but had no idea how to start the conversation. After exchanging pleasantries like the babies ages, were they sleeping through the night, etc. I would inevitably feel like I reeked of desperation to please! be! my! friend! It was like being 16 all over again, talking to a cute boy. Ugh!

Now my daughter is three, and while my desperation to talk to another adult still exists some days, I’ve found a group of mommas to call friend. However, for women who are new to Orlando, knowing where to turn for fun things to do with your family (that doesn’t always involve a theme park!), or finding a group of women to call friends is hard. Even if you know people who live here, you might reside in Winter Park and they call Windermere home. And that’s where Orlando Moms Blog comes in.

Our hope is that this space will become a go-to for the mommas who call Central Florida home — for family-friendly activities, date night ideas, and even the occasional Moms Night Out! So, grab a cup of coffee (or pour a glass of wine!) and sit down with us. This is your community, and we can’t wait to get to know you!
