Here's a link to her website to see what V.O.W. is all about!  http://verseoftheweek.org/
****************************************** When I was younger, I absolutely LOVED memorizing Bible verses! It was fun because my Sunday School class would have competitions and would have prizes each week for those who memorized their verse. We will admit, Jared and I not always the best at memorizing scriptures weekly like we used to do, but we still try every now and then. Jared and I like to hang verses around the house as visual reminders and encouragement. 
We LOVE this V.O.W. package because it makes it SO easy and convenient to learn new scriptures! We don't have kids, but we can imagine this would be a really fun idea to do with the whole family too! The papers are bright and festive, so it's very inviting to read.

Bosu Ball Workout!

Image
It's been a while since we shared a workout with you, so here ya go!
Jared and I used some of our Christmas money to purchase a BOSU BALL to incorporate into our workouts since we are using our apartment gym and it doesn't have a ton of the cool equipment that most gyms have. WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE USING THE BOSU BALL. 
It is a great way to achieve more balance, flexibility, and deepen our exercises by using our entire core. Here are a few of the exercises we do with it. 
***We are not personal trainers. Jared has learned these over the years with his sports trainer in Louisville. Please check with your doctor or personal trainer before trying these on your own.***
For some reason, the computer made these videos a lot faster. We did not do the exercises this quickly. It's all about slow, controlled movements. 
For the abs:



 For the Legs:
Arms/Chest:  
Back:

 Do you use a BOSU BALL in your workouts? What do you like to do with it? Let us know in the comments!

Bobalu Almonds Review and Giveaway!

Image
Bobalu Almonds sent us some of their shelled almonds to review AND host a giveaway!! We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 
Here's some FAQ from their website: Where do your almonds come from? All Bobalu almonds come from California, anywhere from Bakersfield to Chico.  Nearly 80% of the world’s production of almonds come from this region.  More info can be foundhere. What makes your almonds so delicious? Most importantly, we take great pride in our selection of almonds and use the Nonpareil variety.  Second, we roast our almonds IN THE SHELL which produces their crisp texture and buttery taste. What’s up with the shell? An almond actually has multiple layers: a fruit like exterior while it hangs on the tree, a much harder and larger outer shell, a thin shell, and a kernel.  You may be familiar with almonds that require a nutcracker and are a pain to crack!, but we remove that for you, leaving only the thin shell and almond.
