Where We Live

Our cute little kitchen

This table was such a good buy. We love it!
So happy to have a bigger living room
Amsterdam Art
Van Gogh Art

Office space. We love having 2 bedrooms so I can work from home!
This bed was also a great find

Anyways we are so thrilled to be living in a place that is roach free and more spacious. There are nice little updated the landlord has put in to the place. He really takes care of his fourplex. In the front he has an evergreen and flower trees that really make it feel like a yard. He's a great landlord. One downside: The incredibly noisy neighbors and the train right down the street. I had Derek get me some earplugs to deal with those situations. Most of the time they work like a charm but those other times leave me exhausted.What happened to those days when i was a heavy sleeper? Oh yeah...the days of no sleeping in college always got me to sleep through my alarm for my 7:45 class.

I know the quality of the pictures isn't great but I wanted to take some after our spring cleaning and all I had on me was my phone. We are just loving our new space and plan on staying here until Derek graduates and we find out where life takes us after that.

DEREK GRADUATES IN ONE YEAR! I am so proud of him for all his hard work. Mechanical Engineering is not an easy major but it's fun to see him enjoy what he's learning. He has a great internship at Northrup Grumman where he gets to put his learning to use. So far he's loving all the high level security stuff that goes on there and is starting to feel like an engineer.


  1. We need to come see your new place and have a re-match on the Wii! It looks great! Good job on the spring cleaning - want to come clean my apt? ;)

  2. I love love love it! And I especially love your kitchen table, sooo cute! I can't wait to move into my first home and start adding my own touches. 2 weeks baby!!!!!!

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…
