See Kai Run (shoes for kids)

see kai run shoes girls

 

**UPDATE** This sale is now over and when these shoes aren’t on sale they aren’t cheap. When they aren’t on sale on their website I check Amazon here is a link for a good deal on a pair on Amazon right now and if you don’t like this pair search See Kai Run shoes on Amazon and you can see all their options. I have also been able to buy them from Zulily too, you just have to keep checking there or sign up for their e-mails so you know when See Kai Runs are on their site.

I was going to save this post for later but I saw an amazing sale on these shoes and so because they’re some of my favorite shoes for kids I had to share. Here’s the link to their site and some of the shoes are 60% off plus free shipping if you spend $30. I’ll admit they are not cheap shoes but I have learned after buying so many kids shoes that it’s worth it to me to spend a little more on good shoes so they last longer. I am a bargain shopper though so I am very careful to watch sales and get them as cheap as possible. I often get them on Amazon and they will have good deals once in a while on certain styles but this time they are on sale directly from the See Kai Run site and there are some great deals. These toddler shoes (in the picture) are regular $40 and right now they are $16 (and that’s not much more than Target kids shoes) so I was so excited. I have never seen washable ones so I am excited to try these. They have a lot of options as part of the sale right now and they sell boys and girls baby, toddler, and little kids up to size 3 (which is usually a 7-8 year old).

I love how cute they always are, they are great quality, and the soles are awesome. If you are looking for good kids/toddler/baby shoes these are some of my favorites.

See Kai Run is also American Podiatric Medical Association accepted, you can read about this on their site but it basically means they have a healthy fit for kids with a wide opening, they use quality leather and their soles are flexible for healthy feet development. You can read about it in detail on their site here’s the link for the direct page talking about their product information.

Deb’s Fresh Mozzarella Avocado Salad (a summer favorite)

SONY DSCLooks can be deceiving, the picture may not look amazing but the salad tastes AMAZING. I Pretty much made up this salad recipe last summer when I was eating super clean and wanted something healthy and delicious. My sister in law suggested adding cucumbers and that is a delicious addition. The salad requires no cooking so I love that you don’t have to turn the oven or the stove on, on those hot summer days when extra heat is not wanted. This salad is delicious, healthy and refreshing. I hope you like it as much as we do. Enjoy!

Fresh Mozzarella Avocado Salad (a summer favorite)

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados cut into cubes
  • 1/2 pound of fresh mozzarella cut into cubes or fresh mozzarella balls (both of these can be bought at Costco in the specialty cheese section there is a difference between fresh mozzarella and regular mozzarella go for the fresh in this salad)
  • 1 cup mini cucumbers cut into slices or dice up a regular cucumber into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup of grape tomatoes, or the medley tomatoes (Costco sells these as well in the summer time they are small tomatoes all different colors)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (from Costco, Kirkland brand is by far my favorite, I included a picture at the bottom of the post)
  • 1 tablespoon of avocado oil (or you can use olive oil, I also included a picture of the kind I like)
  • a dash of sea salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • *This recipe doesn't make a whole lot but you want to eat this salad fresh so you only want to make as much as you'll eat or have a small amount of left overs. It will stay good in the fridge for about a day is all.

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!
  • This salad is a very clean, healthy, delicious addition to any meal or can be a meal itself. One of my all time favorite salads especially during the summer.
