Move in Monday!

Back deck! Can't wait to string my hammock.

Put the pendants in! IO favorites.
More back deck. Probably my most favorite addition.

Entry way. I'm really glad we moved the shutters from the window to the door.

Thank you Harold for the beautiful landscaping!

My cozy cottage!

Sod will be delivered tomorrow!

I can't believe it's all over. Let the gardening begin. Thank you Mema for all the bulbs. I planted them today. Should be a beautiful spring.

Step Up!

Our Parson Hills step team performed at Bud Walton Arena for the Drug Free Awareness Rally last week. They've been stomping up and down the halls for weeks gearing up for the big day. I've come to realize that are Marshallese kiddos have more rhythm than I could ever dream of having. In case you are unaware, Springdale has the largest population of Marshalles in the USA. They come from the Marshall Islands. A lot like the Hawain Islanders the girls can belly dance and the boys can drum. They are born with the rhythm. A couple of my fifth grade girls tried to teach me how to butty shake today. Didn't work. They say it's all in the knees. Apparently, I don't have good knees.

Coming Close!

Our lighting is in! I'm loving the dinette light! I can't wait to get our pendants hung! They are beautiful "Uttermost" pendants. Will show them soon. We now have carpet and a fireplace also! Closing date set for Nov. 23rd!!!!
