Playing the Power Way

I have gotten so behind in posting about our adventures. I am leaving next week for another conference and I want to catch up before I leave again. Derek and I have been busy with school, finals, work, weddings, and traveling. Here are some pictures to recap.

Attended a wedding, bridal shower, and baby shower. That last picture is just an adorable one of my niece. She is just the cutest thing ever. I can't get enough of her.  Look at that red hair. Here is hoping I get to spend time with her and my new nephew this summer! He's due in about 3 weeks.

Bought myself some Coach sunglasses. Thanks to my fabulous insurance program I only had to pay $5.00. Yeah for not needing glasses so I can get myself some nice sunglasses. Getting classy!

We celebrated Easter. We had a huge feast at my parents house with a lot of her side of the family. Delicious food and great company. The weather was perfect so we couldn't help but take a picture after church.

For those who don't know, my mom is a fabulous seamstress. I was stressing out because I couldn't find a black dress anywhere for my best friends wedding. My mom made this little miracle of a dress. Truly, it was a miracle. She made it so quickly and I love it. So grateful for this fabulous dress.  I need to learn how to sew like my mom. My poor kids will probably be blessed with a hard to fit body like mine. I need to find a class...

Ok that's all for now. More to come!


  1. We are soooo hoping we'll get to see you guys soon! We should find out in the middle of this month. Cross your fingers! I'm still super jealous of that gorgeous dress. You look great!

  2. LOVE those glasses! :) and your niece is adorable!!

  3. You are smokin' in that black dress! We had so much fun with you guys last night. We're sure gonna miss you when we move!

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…
