The Gadberry Group has announced that Atascocita is the 2nd most notable high-growth area from 2009.  This is a fantastic statistic for us!  Atascocita residents see homes still being built - maybe a little slower - but they are still going up.  Atascocita residents see new restaurants and businesses coming to our area.  In fact, three of them are within a five mile radius (sushi, frozen yogurt & burgers) and should be opening their doors shortly.   The Gadberry Group, headquartered in Little Rock, provides U.S. household geo-demographic data products.  Unlike other data gathering products, Gadberry's products do not simply rely on summarized data such as 2000 census data or postal data as their primary source. The Gadberry Group doesn't build their product primarily for direct marketi...

This year was the 10th Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange hosted by my friend Carol.  She began this tradition ten years ago when she moved to Walden on Lake Houston.  And every year this event is something that everyone looks forward to.  There are specific rules.  EXCEPT this year, Carol allowed bar cookies to be brought.  And she changed the number of cookies to 4 dozen (instead of the usual 6 dozen).  There were 13 of us that exchanged our baked goods.   We had a beautiful display. All cookies must be homemade, baked and the main ingredient must be flour.  No "no-bake" cookies.  FOR THE FIRST YEAR - bars are allowed! Please bring 4 dozen total cookies or bars, you’ll go home with the same amount. Arrange your cookies in a basket or platter – be creative! Bring a large container (i.e.,...

We don't get much of the cold, white stuff here in Texas.  We much prefer the heat and humidity (it keeps you looking so young!).  Plus no shoveling or scraping or disposing of sunshine.  I'll give you the fact that the cold, white stuff makes a pretty picture.  And the snowballs & snowmen are fun for the kiddos.  But it makes our Texas drivers act like maniacs on our freeways.  NO ONE HERE UNDERSTANDS ICE.  These photos were taken on Saturday, the day after the big snowstorm, at about 10 AM.  We usually don't have the snow stay around for the next day!

              It was interesting the way the callers made their way to me.  One had been looking for a new bookstore in the Kingwood area.  When they googled a bookstore in Kingwood, The Bookworm Shop came up in my blog.  After reading the information on the blog, they called what they thought was The Bookworm Shop.  Only it was my number they dialed.  When we realized the error, I got them the correct number for the store.  They thanked me for my assistance and I said, "Now, you have to remember to call my number when you or someone you know is in the market to sell or buy a home.  They promised they would.  (Plus I captured their phone number & have them on my mailing list now)  The second instance was because of someone looking for their Arbonne representative.  They googled "Cheryl...

If you are looking for a venue to hold a party, a wedding rehearsal or a wedding reception - look no further.  Just call Mary Rowan, Private Event Director at Walden on Lake Houston.  The dining room in the country club overlooks the 18th Hole & Lake Houston.  There is even a gazebo near the lake for an outdoor ceremony.  One client I know had a bagpiper playing while she made her entrance to be married. The staff at Walden on Lake Houston is willing and able to create just what you had in mind for your event.  And Mary Rowan will be there with you, from start to finish, to make sure your special event is every bit as unique as the occasion you are celebrating.   Susan Brown, Your Texas Connection sells real estate in Walden on Lake Houston, Eagle Springs, Summerwood, Atascocita, TX, Ki...

This kitty, Mike, is my friend's orange tabby.  He doesn't like his picture taken - especially when he is playing with something he shouldn't be.  The item in question is a red hat band complete with feathers and netting.  Mike may be in trouble for his shenanigans, but how can you resist this look?

Okay.  So if you asked my pets - they would have something to say about the coolness of my home.  I do like it cold.  But that is what a gaslog is for - keeping the pets warm!  Parker, my German Shepherd mix, seems to be pleased about the warmth of the lovely fireplace.
