Nebo Scenic Loop

Last week I posted our lovely Fall Bucket List that will ensure we take the time to go out and enjoy all the beautiful things this season has to offer. It's been a fun adventure so far. One of them was to go on a scenic walk/drive through all the fall leaves. 

We had originally planed to go to Sundance Ski Resort and take the chair lift through the mountains and get out and walk around. So glad we changed our plans as this drive was beautiful and the weather was perfect. Friday night Derek went camping over in this location with the scouts and wanted to take me back there on Saturday afternoon. It was beautiful. For all of you in Utah you should take a drive through the Nebo Scenic Loop in Payson. It's free and just a beautiful drive. If you have the time you can walk to The Grotto which is a waterfall in the Payson Canon. 

Anyways, take a look at the beauty we discovered on this Fall Bucket List adventure. Truly grateful for  all the beauty we can find around us.

{So many pretty fall colors. Worth getting out and walking around.} 
{We love our car. This was our major  2012 purchase and we couldn't be happier about it.}
{Me and that pregnant belly of mine. 26 weeks 3 days.}
{My handsome husband}
{Honestly. So beautiful.} 
{I was loving the red/pink/magenta colored leaves}
{7th take and we finally got a good one!} 

{Always provides me with laughter} 
{He's a trooper for all these pictures I make him "smile" for}

  2. You look so cute with your preggo belly. Getting closer. The colors are gorgeous.

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…
