Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth no the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
- Proverbs 31: 10, 25-31

We also spent time in Rogers, Springdale, and Fayetteville.

We love to watch America's Best Dance Crew on MTV.

My poodle thinks he is a sculpture!!

I recently acquired this lovely "reading girl sculpture"
for my birthday and I absolutely love it.

This is where I placed it in my home. As you
can see, my poodle, Jasper, sat there as I was taking
the photograph....I swear, I did not pose him like that!!!
He thinks he is a living sculpture! LMAO

Decorative Item and Jasper

I've recently added this beautiful mirror to
the decor of my living room. My sweet
mother gave it to me and I think it looks like
it was made for this space! Click here
to see what I had there previously.

I have not posted any photos of Jasper lately,
so here are a couple taken recently.

Tessia's last day as a Sophomore!

Summer '08 began with RiverFest in Little Rock!
Tessia went with a friend and her family to RiverFest
in downtown Little Rock. She had a great time at
all the concerts.

Summer has continued with Tessia and her
friends just goofing off and having fun.

Flowerbed Fun & Mother's Day

I've recently put the finishing touches
on my front flowerbed. My next project
is adding a roofed deck to the back part of the house.
The carpenter was here yesterday taking
measurements for an estimate.

Before After

I added the bird bath and lily pad.

I planted the urn and added it to my
front porch.

Full view

I added landscape lights this past weekend.

I also planted the bigger urn this past
weekend and placed it on the other
side of the house....for symmetry.
