My new thing

So I know I need to blog about Europe. We just go home on Sunday night and I can't wait to tell you all about it and share some pictures with you. I just need to decide which pictures to share since we took so many. I loved it though. So much fun and saw some of the most beautiful things.

Until that blog post I just had to share something that was on my mind. So I have reached a standstill with my weight loss. I am just hovering around the same number (down 11.4 pounds!) and I want/need to loose more. So in an attempt to revamp things I decided to try a new workout. Oh my goodness I am so sore! It was so hard but fun. It's called PiYo and it's my new workout in addition to Zumba. My poor triceps, thighs, back end, etc are so sore. I love it though. Such a good feeling. If you can you should check it out. It's a combination or Yoga and Pilates so it includes strength training and flexibility to build long, lean muscles.

Here's a sneak peak:

If you have a gym that offers this you MUST try it. You feel challenged and stronger by the end of the workout.

Ok that's all. Hope you're all having a fabulous day. I am not looking forward to the snow storm coming in tonight.


  1. Oh, I 'll definitely try that!! I love finding new things to do. Hopefully, I can find some videos on YouTube. Thanks! And I can't wait to hear all about Europe!! So glad you guys got to go!

  2. I heard about that the other day it sounds cool. Do you have a DVD of it? Or do you just go to a class at your gym?

  3. Yay for being down 11.4 pounds! That's awesome! :D I'm pretty sure I couldn't do any of those moves on PiYo. They looks so hard!

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…

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…
