Some Friday Favorites

For my 44 today I went with a move that Debbie @ Live from La Quinta had in a post the other day about balance.  I figure I might not have balance in all areas of my life but I can work on my actual balance!!! 

I did a 1 arm chest press on the stability ball.

I did all 44 reps on the right side and then switched and did 44 more because it’s all about  balance!!!

It might seem like it is easier to do 1 arm at a time but you really do have to work on the balance and hold tighter with your core so you don’t roll off the ball.  I used 15 pounds and that was just enough to make the last 5 reps or so really difficult!!!

And, I did another run (4 in 1 week!!!) – 1.5% incline for 8 miles at 7:30 pace then an easy cool down mile.

I love our new dishwasher!!

The fact that the buttons are on the top of it is nice because our old one had them right on the front and people were always leaning against it and turning it on!!!  Plus – check out the 3 racks –

Look how cool the top rack is – it holds all of those big utensils – I love it!!!

Another kitchen appliance that I love is my Ninja Crock Pot!!!  (I actually love all of my crock pots and use them often.)

The really cool thing about this one is that you can use it in other ways besides just a slow cooker.  The feature I love is the stove-top cooking one.

So, I don’t have to use a skillet to sauté onions or brown meat – I just do it in the Ninja – it’s genius!!!

And, I haven’t watched as much college basketball as I normally do but the other night my favorite team did this –

Hook 'em Horns!!!

Pretty big deal for Texas to beat Kansas since I actually live in Kansas!!!

My final favorite today is this cool YouTube video that Jordan put together for me.

I wanted to have some kind of picture display for the Bridal Fair this weekend and Jordan took care of it for me!!!

What is one of your favorites today?

Happy Friday!!
