A Whirlwind Weekend

This past weekend was fabulous.  It was jam packed with so many fun activities.  My dearest, long time friend Robyn was in town for a week.  We went out to dinner and just talked on Wednesday and once I found out she was going to be in town for longer than another day we started making plans.

Movie Under the Stars 

You sit on the hill underneath the capitol building. Bring blankets, food, and friends. 

The played Despicable Me.  We brought the whole family. It was a blast!

Side story about this.  We get there and park and see that everyone around us is much more prepared.  They have mattresses and tons of food and a lot of them are in their PJ's. So Robyn and I decided to go on an adventure to a local market to get some snacks.  We took my little brother with me.  We thought it wouldn't be a bad walk at all.  Who knew that it would be completely downhill and the walk back up wouldn't be very pleasant in flip flops.  BUT....we made it!  We brought back delicious treats just in time for the movie to start.  

For the adventures on the rest of our fun weekend you'll have to stay tuned. Sneak Peak: This is the Place National Park and boating.  Robyn tried wake boarding for her first time ever!

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

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…

Happenings of Lately

So for so reason blogger isn't working right with my pictures so I'll give a brief synopsis from here:
1-3: Lombardi Farms: It is this pumpkin patch, petting zoo, corn maze, sunflower maze and so much more. We went and spent the afternoon there. It was so fun. Some of the pumpkins were huge as you can see.
4: Johnnie's New York. It was a restaurant down on the Promenade in Santa Monica. It was beautiful down there. We walked around the Promenade, ate dinner, rode the ferris wheel down on the pier, and finished the night off with some gelato. It was so good. Such a fun evening. Before we leave California I am trying to do a lot of the California things.
5: Hollywood. I guess it's an experience you have to have once but I really hated it. It was dirty and nothing like I imagine and you could just really see the sin all around. On the bonus side I found the Olsen twins & John Stamo's star. That was fun. No Miley Cyrus though.
6-7: Griffith Observatory:…

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…
