Scott, Kim, and Addie visit

So today Derek and I finally got an Internet connection so I can update the blog. We have been procrastinating until we got our new computer! It looks a little like this:

Our keyboard isn't as small though. It is in proportion to the monitor. Then to make things even better in our apartment we bought a book case and then my parents surprised us with a flat screen TV and a blue ray player for our late Christmas gift! We are loved and spoiled and so grateful for the wonderful families we have.

So they only exciting thing that has happened lately is that my brother and his wife and cute little baby came to visit for his spring break. It was so much fun. For the first time in a long time I felt that there was something to do. Here are some pictures of my adorable niece, Addie.

She loved the thin mints. She even gave me a kiss because I gave her one.

She is my favorite!

So other than that nothing exciting is happening. Derek is doing well in school and adjusting fine. Work is boring but I survive.

P.S. Getting excited for summer and general conference!


  1. We loved getting to see you guys so much! And don't worry, there's a lot less drama when you're best friend is your husband, so I wouldn't stress about finding other ones:) If only we were closer, then we could hang out!!!

  2. Move to tucson so we can hang out! weekdays, weekends, till you get sick of me ;)

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…
