Cricket is a resident of Summerwood - a wonderful community here in Atascocita.  She is a sister to Katie, who you met a few weeks ago.  And to be a pet in my friend's family is like winning the lottery & being crowned a member of the royal family all rolled up in one!  Cricket is a Jack Russell Terrier - so not only is she smart, but she can jump higher than any dog I've ever seen!  And if you are having a conversation with someone else, Cricket likes to sit in the middle and look back & forth, almost as if she is following what's being said.  She is a cutie!

According to an article in BusinessWeek, "A new survey finds the Lone Star State is leading in terms of growth rate and household income. Atascocita, Tex., is No. 1 in the state." This is exciting news for us.  Our own Mike Byers, President of the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce, was also quoted, saying, "We're starting to see major industry start to take a look at the area."   After all, not only do we have outstanding opportunities in residential real estate but we have phenomenal retail, dining and entertainment establishments that support our community.  And the cherry on top is Lake Houston!  We were fortunate to have Mike Byers speak at our morning meeting yesterday here at Keller Williams NE.  And we now have a list of exciting additions coming to our area.  I have enough ...

Meet Katie V.  She is one of the delightful members of a friend's family.  Katie came via foster care to a friend of mine and never left!  She is one smart dog.  Even though she has to put up with the antics of the other furry members of the family (Scarlett, Tippy & Cricket) she is one pampered pooch.  I couldn't resist a photo session with her one day - look at that cute little face!   Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Kingwood Greens, Royal Shores & Kingwood, TX - just to name a few!  Susan's the team leader for Your Texas Connection at Keller Williams Realty NE.  Visit their website for more in depth info about the team and what they can do for you.  Or call Susan direct (281) 415-1454 if you'd ...

One of my favorite sushi restaurants is 838.  They are located in the Kroger center at FM 1960 & W. Lake Houston in Atascocita.  Daily lunch specials include sushi, sashimi, bento boxes & udon.   We had lunch there last week & I couldn't resist getting a special from the board - a filet, on a bed of asparagus, topped with crispy noodles.  Yummy!My friend had her favorite white tuna sashimi & decided to try a burrito roll.  The burrito roll was so good  - she had two!  It is wrapped in soy paper & filled with tuna, salmon, avocado & crispy tempura.  There is a spicy sauce served with for dipping.  Also Yummy!  838 is definitely a place to check out if you haven't already had the pleasure!

I wrote last week about a new restaurant opening in Atascocita on January 11 - Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  I promised my readers to be there opening day to check out the food (what a great excuse that was).  So I stuck to my word - Five Guys Burgers and Fries is a WINNER!The menu is simple - hamburger, cheeseburger, bacon burger, bacon cheeseburger - then just add "little" to the same line up for an alternative.  We got in line and made it to the front in no time at all.  When it was time to order, the menu was explained as the "burger" was two patties (3.3 oz each) and the "little burger" was only one patty.  And the regular fries served two people.  My friend Carol & I promply ordered the burger & an order of fries each - totally ignoring the "regular fries serve two" information.  ...

At my client appreciation party in December, we gave away a number of door prizes.  One of them was a waffle maker in the shape of the Great State of Texas.The client that won that prize sent me a photo this morning of their first creation on the waffle iron.  That was cool!  Relationships with clients are very important and I think I can safely say they are clients for life.  (Thanks Tara, Chris, Emily & Lainie!)

This is one interesting concept.  A conveyor belt of sushi traveling along in front of you.  You select what you want right off the line.  Sushi Choo Choo.  And it is coming to Atascocita, in front of WalMart on FM 1960.  Enjoy the video of the conveyor belt.  The restaurant has gotten great reviews on B4-U-EAT for its Willowbrook location.  "Hard to find, but worth looking for! Great sushi, and variety of rolls; even good seaweed salad (although could use a little more seasoning); we went at 2:30, which is in "happy hour", so our total sushi purchase was 30% off--what a great deal! We will know next time to sit closer to the chef, so we can see for certain what is freshest on the line." - Tex Mex Girl "A variety of sushi ranging from $1.50 to $4.50 per dish. Very fresh quality!
