A Lawyer Celebration and a Tri Delt Happy Hour

Thursday night, Ryan's law partner, Brian Lester (of the Lester Law Firm), was honored as the Arkansas Bar Association's Young Lawyer of the Year. An event was hosted at Soul in his honor and a lot of young attorneys were their to congratulate him. He was presented with his award by Judge Mark Lindsey of Washington County

As soon as Brian got his award, I left and rushed over to the other side of town to attend a Tri Delta Alumni Happy Hour. As most of you know, I am now the alumnae group president and we are trying hard to get more Tri Deltas involved. Our Happy Hour was at Theo's on Dickson Street and we had a great turn out! Below is a picture of Becca Fergus, Erin Telfer and me - the only representatives from the pledge class of '03. We had a lot of fun catching up. Next up is the Founder's Day dinner on Nov. 12.

Football Week 8

Farmington Cardinals (4-2-1, 3-1) vs. Huntsville Eagles (3-4, 2-2)

The Cardinals are coming off their first conference loss and the Huntsville Eagles are traveling to Farmington with some confidence after their win against Pea Ridge last week. Both teams are desperate for a win, one more for Farmington guarantees a spot in the playoffs. Farmington will be at home for the first time in 3 weeks and anxious to bounce back from a loss. Farmington's lower classmen continue to improve each week and will once again be vital in tonight's matchup.
Editor's Note: Head Coach Adams has been down with a cold this week and is still not feeling 100%. Hope you feel better for tonight's game Coach! Love you!

Arkansas Razorbacks (3-3) vs. Ole Miss Rebels (4-2)

What a Weekend!

This weekend was very busy but very fun.
It all started on Thursday. I participated in the Woodland Junior High 50th Anniversary celebration. At the 8th grade football game, they recognized 50 years of pom squad and cheer squad members. We were announced by decades and then did a cheer on the field. Talk about a flashback. I did the reunion with Jana. Her husband is a coach with Dad at Farmington.

Saturday Aunt Janie and I got up early and headed out to the War Eagle craft fair. I hadn't been in years and we had a tons of fun. We made some cool purchases, including some gifts, and made a lot of fun of some of the things we saw. We also ran in to Bekah and Dallas. That was a fun surprise.

Saturday night I attended the wedding reception of Kelsey and Jerome. Kelsey works we me and the other MCGers and I went to congratualte the happy couple. Sorry Kels, this was the only pic I had.
And finally on Sunday, Baby Hudson, Sarah and Nathan's son, was dedicated at New Heights Church. Both Ryan and I were excited to get to witness that and it was a great family experience.

Football Week 7

Farmington Cardinals (4-1-1) vs. Gravette Lions (6-0)


This might possibly be the most important game of the season for both Farmington and Gravette. Both teams, along with Shiloh, are the only undefeated teams in 1-4A conference play. This game will most likely determine 2nd place in the conference. Farmington (57 points) and Gravette (58 points) are ranked 1 and 2 in the conference in scoring defense (via the Northwest Arkansas Times). But both teams will also be without key starters. The game is sure to be a great game and Farmington's toughest challenge to date.

Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Florida Gators
All I can say about this game is that Arkansas has beaten the #1 ranked team TWICE on Oct. 17th in the past. Coincidence? I think NOT! Go Hogs!!!

20 Years Ago Today

20 years ago today, Spencer and I lost our mom and one month earlier, JD lost his Dad and two spouses lost their other halves.

20 years ago today, two families were hit with devestation but little did we know, a new family was about to be formed.

20 years ago today, a car accident and a sudden heart attack changed our lives. We thought things would never be good again. But, God had another plan in mind for us. Through these tragedies, he brought two broken families together. Spencer and I gained another wonderful mother and JD was given another amazing Dad.

We never know what will happen each day or how our lives will change, but through my family's life experiences, I know God has a plan for each and every one of us and He will take care of each of us.

Football Week 6

Farmington Cardinals (3-1-1) vs. Berryville Bobcats (1-4)
Farmington hits the road for the first time since week one to take on the Berryville Bobcats. Farmington is coming off an exciting win aginst thier rivals from last week. Again, Farmington's defense will be tested with another run-based team. Berryville is a little weaker this year with only have won one game. The test will be to see how well the Cards play on the road.
Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Auburn Tigers

The showdown between the Razorbacks and the Tigers is a bit of a family reunion. Former Arkansas coaches Terry Rocker and Gus Malzhan return to coach against the Hogs this year and Northwest Arkansas natives Cody Burns and Lee Ziemba are now both Auburn starters. Auburn is going to be another tough test for the Hogs.

Football Week 5: Rivalry Week!

This week, for one team it is the biggest rivarly of the seaon, for my other team, it's the renewal of a long-standing rivalry.
Farmington Cardinals (2-1-1) vs. Prairie Grove Tigers (1-3) aka: BATTLE OF HIGHWAY 62


For both teams, this is the most important game of the season. FHS and PGHS have been rivals for many years. Farmington won last year and is hoping to repeat the success in 2009. The Tigers and the Cardinals got their first conference win last week, it was PG's first win of the season. Both teams have a strong running game that might prove difficult to defend against. The outcome of this game could determine 2nd place in the 1-4A conference.

And by the way, I just realized that I didn't post results from last week's game - Cardinals won and the Hogs lost.

Arkansas Razorbacks (1-2) vs. Texas A & M Aggies (3-0)


This is the teams first meeting since 1991 when the Hogs left the Southwest Conference to join the SEC. The teams will battle it out in the new, state of the art Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. Both teams are excited to rejuviate the historical rivalry and battle it out on the gridiron.
