Catching up...

Sorry I disappeared form the blogging world for a short while. I have been traveling a lot for work lately and with that I have been exhausted. I feel tired all of the time but summer/warm weather is bringing my energy slowly back to me.

Our Mary Poppins Outing:
We bought ourselves a Sponge Bob kite. We had so much fun celebrating spring by flying our kite.
Cincinnati: aka the worst place ever
I really hate this trip more than most. It was a successful conference but just a horrible week. It was long and the city itself just did nothing for me.

Fountain Square
The only good thing about that city: Graters Ice Cream
Burbank Bound:
Had such a fun time in Burbank. I got to spend a lot of time with Derek's parents and even had a girls night out with Anne Marie, Derek's mom. It was so fun. Here are some pictures from the trip.

My celebrity siting on the flight over: Katherine Heigl. These are my paparazzi photos.
In Provo we never have weird sidewalk activity. Yeah Burbank!
My favorite treat. It was so good.
My awesome suite hotel room. They upgraded me for free!
I had 2 rooms in my hotel. Amazing.
Adventures in South Provo:
Some of the things close to our house. We enjoy taking summer walks together and exploring the city.


  1. Katherine Heigl say WHAT?!! awesome.

    1. I did think this was pretty awesome. I knew you'd be proud.

  2. LOVE the paparazzi shots! Fun!

    1. haha. I still can't believe I took them. I really did feel like a paparazzi but with a conscience. ha

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 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…
