Wonderful Wedding Day

As mentioned in my last post, Derek and I attended a wedding for a wonderful friend this past weekend. It was like a mini college reunion. I loved it. Above are some of my great friends from college, Emily, and my husband. So grateful they are a part of my life.

Everyone of the girls had super fabulous shows on and springy dresses. I am the one of the end with black shows and a black and gray dress. How boring, I know. However, I do love this picture. Craig did the photo editing and it looks fabulous!

Sorry my pictures are never in chronological order. I don't know how to use blogger that well so I just take what I can get. This picture is when Craig and Emily came to visit after Craig got in town. I hadn't seen Craig since September so this was very exciting. I love my Craiggers! He will be doing some EFY in Provo this summer and I am so excited to see more of him.

The handsome groom and beautiful bride. They looked fabulous the whole day.

The sealing was wonderful. I have never been to a sealing where the sealer was just inspiring. He opened my eyes up to so many things. I felt blessed to be a part of this sealing. Then the luncheon was awesome and fun afterwards. All the college friends sat at a table and we just laughed and caught up. Then the reception was later and it was done so well. Annie sang a couple songs to her new husband and it was great to see the love they share with one another. I am excited for their future together. Mike has been a friend of mine since I was young. ha I met him and his twin brother, Matt, when I was 18 years old but we became really good friends after they both returned home from their missions when I was 20/21. I can't believe I have known them for so long. Love those Briney twins and am grateful for their friendship throughout the years. Annie is wonderful. I don't know her super well but I do know that she is great for Mike and they bring out the best in one another and that is the making for an eternal relationship.

Tomorrow Derek and I leave for California to spend sometime with his family and to see his sister come home from her mission. I am excited to blog about that when we return. Until then, have a great week!


  1. I love your blog! It's so cute! I added you to our list so we can keep in touch!

  2. Aww wish I could have been there! Mike looks so happy!

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…
