Love Weekends

So I've been very blessed to now work a lot of Friday's and Derek doesn't have school on Friday so we really take advantage of our weekends and try to spend a lot of time together. I always look forward to them. Here are some things we've been up to lately. I apologize for always having so many pictures to tell me stories. If I updated more often it wouldn't be so bad.

At Vasquez Rocks. Tons of movies and shows have
been filmed here. Monk, NCIS, The Flinstone Movie, etc

Me in a small cave

Derek rock climbing. Amazing isn't it? ha

Enjoying our time together

Christmas lights in Santa Clarita are a
huge deal. They have neighboorhood contests every year.
Seriously they have place where you have to find Rudolph and
people pass out candy canes. So festive. I loved it.

They are all so beautiful.

Rolls I made for Thanksgiving. My first attempt. Not too shabby.

At HP7! Loved it.

The stormy clouds we saw on our way out to dinner before the movie.

Derek on the quad at Anza. His Aunt and Uncle's ranch.
It's amazing there

In front of the barn.

Isn't he so precious?

Anyways this weekend we are going to see the Christmas Carol and then heading to Newport Beach on Thursday night. We are spending the night at the beach house and then in Newport on Friday. We have tickets for a boat parade that night in Balboa Island to see the boats decorated. I'll post pictures then.


  1. Why do I get the feeling you are tricking me with that picture of Derek climbing the rock? Are you sure he isn't lying down on the rock? Way cool.

  2. Wow these are awesome! It looks like you guys find the funnest things to do...Balboa Island! Ahh miss it so much and our amazing time there! Love your blog, you are so creative!

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

UPDATE:  Hello Everyone! I have noticed that this post has been receiving a lot of traffic via pinterest and The Dating Divas Website. I wanted to welcome you all. I still do free printables for different seasons and holidays but no longer post them on my personal blog. We'd love it if you'd follow along on our design journey. You can find us on Facebook! 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…
