Here we are again with another winter storm, I feel like this one kind of came from nowhere. Or I just wasn't paying attention to the weather reports.

I was able to get some cleaning done, laundry finished, read and watched a little personal development and a got a run on the treadmill in this morning!

Sometimes these unexpected days off are kind of nice, although, I tend to use the time to catch up on things that I just don't take the time to get done on the weekends, plus need to keep checking on those new babies we have outside.

Listening to my favorite podcast "Rise Together"

After I posted about Hot Chocolate 15K Training, I received lots of questions about what kind of earbuds I use. Trust me, I get it! I know why people are asking. I have had everything from the regular old apple earbuds to honkin' big ear muff looking things. I have spent more money on "headphones' than I care to admit. I have purchased the cheap dollar spot kind to leave in lots of locations, I have saved earbuds from a flight to Florida and I have even shipped two different kinds back to Amazon that I didn't like. Then I found the Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones!

I love these because they are wireless and they hold their charge FOREVER! They work great for running because they stay in your ears and don't bounce in and out. Since they are wireless and connect via bluetooth you don't have to worry about a cord getting in the way. There is a small cord that goes from each ear, it just runs behind your head.

So did you catch above that I said I "watched" a little personal development? If you have Amazon Prime, drop everything you are doing and go watch, drumroll please...

It's free if you have Amazon Prime and only $4.99 if you don't! So set aside a couple of hours, snuggle up with your favorite notepad and get ready to be challenged. It will be well worth your time, trust me!

Do you have a favorite brand or pair of earbuds? Do you like to listen to music or podcasts while you exercise? Have you seen Made For More? I would love to hear what you think about it!

When I dreamed of some day having babies of my own I always "assumed" I would have boys. Don't ask me why. I truly have no idea. I just always assumed that was how my life would be. As life would have it, it has been the complete opposite. I have two beautiful, vibrant daughters that make life an adventure each and EVERY single day.

Literally, every single day has some kind of an adventure! Making slime, putting on make up, playing in the cattle yard, dressing cats up as babies, building forts, baking cupcakes, screaming bloody murder at each other, trying on clothes, sewing, playing an ice hockey game with odd sticks, screaming a little more, and making videos. Seriously, the list could go on and on.

If I am completely, wholeheartedly honest. They inspire me to be a better human being each and every day! One of them is tender hearted, worries about how others feel, doesn't want others to be left out and is considerate of every person she comes in contact with. The other is literally going mach 10 from the time her feet hit the floor, things roll off of her back like she wears a turtle shell of armor, and while she is kind and has friends she would much rather have time to explore the great outdoors by herself or with a small number of people.

They both teach me so much about how to "mother" each of them differently, but also inspire me to see the world the way they do. Seeing the world through their young eyes is amazing if you really take the time to "see" it.

So happy that God had a different plan and made me a "Girl" mom. 🙂

What inspires you? Comment below and tell us! I would love to hear more about it, too. I am looking for guests to blog on the topic of What Inspires You. Email me at fourschmitts@gmail.com if you are interested.
