So yesterday Derek and I finally signed the contract for our new place. I am so excited. I don't even care that it's further away from BYU and work. It's like an extra 5-10 minutes depending on traffic. So worth it. Can't wait to leave Cambridge Court. It has been one of the worst places I have ever lived. Some of you may know about the issues we had this summer with some lovely bugs. I will spare you the details because I don't think you really want to know and I don't like to retell it because then I have to relive it. 

Ok so here are the great things about getting to move:
  • 150 more square feet
  • 2 bedrooms
  • Washer and dryer
  • New carpet and tile floor
  • New furnace
  • Updated bathroom
  • Located in a 4-plex (Only 3 neighbors is a bonus)
  • Trash only comes once a week
  • Great Landlord
The downsides:
  • We finally made friends in our current place. We have dinners and game nights with them all so we'll just have to continue after we move.
  • No covered parking 
  • More money but for what we get we feel it's fair
So we officially get to move in to our new place on December 9th and hopefully be out of our other contract on December 14th. Thankfully, if everything works out, we are only double paying for a week of time.

I am also excited to move in before Christmas so that we actually have a couple weeks to have a Christmas tree and decorations up.

Everything really fell into place for this move. Nothing was working out at any other place we had looked at. We feel so blessed to have a great place to move in to. There were many other applications submitted but the landlord really liked us so he bypassed everyone else and selected ours. I'll post pictures as soon as we move in.


  1. Congrats on the new place--So Exciting. And it will be just in time to decorate all cutesy for Christmas :)

  2. Yay! I'm excited that we'll be in town to see the new place! Is this the one you were telling us about, or a different one?

  3. That is awesome!! We live in a 2 bedroom 4-plex right now and it's great. I hope the transition is smooth! Congrats!!!

  4. That is so cool. Congrats!!!!!:)

    Love Ya!

  5. Let me know if you need any help moving! We're around and willing.

  6. I didn't know you guys had a blog! I'm glad I found it. :) This post makes me sad and happy. I'm sad you guys are moving, but I'm happy you found a good place. I'm also sad because I'm slightly jealous of your new abode... :\ I'm sorry things were so poopy for you guys here. We definitely need to still hang out once you guys move. Let me know if there's anything we can do to help with packing and whatnot!

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…
