Is it really July?

So I woke up this morning to the realization that it's July 1st. I started to stress and freak out, but only slightly. I graduate in 23 days. 23 days... There is so much to do between now and then. Being a communication major leaves me with presentations going out of control for the next two weeks...starting today. Let's see 2 in Conflict Management, 1 in PR writing and production, 1 in PR campaigns, 1 in Persuasion. 3 of these speeches/presentations include turning in a whole semester worth of work in a pretty little bound and graphically appealing book. Yeah we'll see how this all works out. On top of that 3 more papers and 2 more tests. One day at a time right?

Besides finishing up my school work there's work. I have 3 closing socials to plan and attend. This is in addition to my hours of meetings every week, almost everyday. Then packing up the whole entire house and moving back to home, which we're not sure where that is right now. Somewhere in the Santa Clarita area.

I am not trying to complain I am simply just stressed and it helps to write it all down. I GRADUATE THIS MONTH! I am so excited about it but everything needs to be done in order for that to happen. Finally, after all my many years at BYU-Idaho, I get to leave...with a degree. Life is good.

This obviously caused me to reflect about wether I would be sad or not. At this moment, absolutely not. What am I loosing or leaving behind? I only really have one friend left in Rexburg, Robyn, and her I will miss. Everyone already left me when they graduated or when I got married. I had some good times, of course, but they are things I never want to do again or have the energy to do again. I am done and couldn't be more thrilled about it. :)

Happy 4th of July this weekend!


  1. Yay for graduating! Good luck these next few weeks. We're excited to see you guys in August! By the way, I love that you've joined the blogging world!

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

I also post all of my free printables here. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your holiday season.
So the past couple of days I have really been thinking about how I can reflect the true meaning of Christmas in my home. We live in a small two bedroom apartment and there isn't much room to decorate. This morning I was watching the video Wise Men Still Seek Himand felt inspired to create a printable for my home. It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

Big News!

So this is big news for the Power family. I know many of you know a million other people who are currently pregnant but before you roll your eyes and skip over this post completely (ha), read on and hear a little bit about our story.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. We just found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby girl. She is due to enter this world on January 3, 2012. So far she is healthy and growing strong. She is growing about a week ahead of schedule. Maybe she'll come before the end of the year. Derek and I will celebrate our 3rd anniversary on the 16th of not too long after our sweet girl is born.
A little about us:
Derek: One of the things I love most about Derek is how patiently he accepts trials in his life. He always has such a good atitude about what life has handed him. When he was 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then at age 19 he was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer.  He has now been in remission for 5 years. We are tr…
