Motivation: 30 day challenge

So this adorable blog I follow is starting the Jillian Micheals 30 day shred on August 22nd.  I read her post today and decided I should do the same thing.  I always need extra help and motivation when it comes to being healthy.  I find it's really hard to get in shape and eat healthy all by yourself.  My husband tries his best to support me but it doesn't always work out.  He loves his cookie dough and he is naturally skinny so he doesn't worry too much about it.  He really does a great job but I have been feeling lately I need more motivation/help. So she is setting a goal and I figured I would too. Why not? I didn't get as in shape this summer as I would've wanted to and I am ready to try a new workout.  It's only 30 days. I can do this. I don't have a start date yet because I just ordered my DVD on today.  As soon as I get it I will set a start day and start the challenge.

I would LOVE it if any of your wanted to join in. It's always nice to do things together and even nicer to work towards a goal of getting in shape.

Yeah for goals and determination to complete them.


  1. Oh Laura you will love it. I've done this, and still do plus the Ripped in 30. You totally need to do that one too. They both are killer workouts. You go girl and I can't wait to hear how it all goes.

  2. I did this before. It's super fun! But, I still eat sweets when I exercise so I don't see results. HA HA

  3. Oh I read that post at the Crowley Party! I have P90X (got it from my bro-in-law) but am scared to try it! I should because of this shred thing and other people are trying. Maybe I should try it haha.... now following your blog! :) GOOD LUCK doing the shred!

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 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…
