Our 1st Anniversary

So yesterday we celebrated our 1st anniversary. We also celebrated it a little bit on Saturday.

-Derek bought me a dozen red roses.
-I got him some cool looking cuff-links.
-Dinner at Olive Garden. My favorite restaurant.
-My friend Na's Hawaiian wedding reception.
-Nickel City. This is where we kind of had our first date. It was so much fun.
-Finished it off by watching The Princess and the Frog in bed.

-My dad made a fabulously delicious dinner. Steak. Potato Soup. Green Salad. Amazing bread.
-We all played a couple grueling rounds of Disney SceneIt and Just Dance 2.
-We thawed the top of our wedding cake and ate it. Actually it was so delicious. It kept really well. Cling wrap is the best. Everyone was shocked at how good it tasted.

This past year has been wonderful. I have experienced more joy than ever before. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life who loves me for who I am. Plus he's patient and for me that's such a blessing. Hope you enjoy the pictures below.

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…
