This past Saturday, we attended The Real Craftwives of Katy EXPO at the Firethorne Clubhouse. We met many amazing business owners and found lots of treasures along the way!
Carina enjoyed getting her face painted and trying her first snow cone.

This picture does not do my new necklace justice. It is so sparkly, and I know that it will become a favorite go-to piece. Linda Davis
I absolutely love this mosaic bowl handmade by Joan VerSteeg. It is unique and adds an eclectic touch to my home.
Carina has been interested in adding some decorations to her room. When we saw Sarah Coin’s colorful display, we knew that we had to have this Rainbow Tassel Banner!
I had never heard of Chloe+Isabel before Saturday, but I am glad to have met Kristin Luttrell and look forward to receiving our purchase in the mail!
Carina was attracted to this bright display and has already worn her new pink-purple-red creation. Almost Famous Tyedye
On Sunday, we took it easy at home and enjoyed a walk near the lake.
The ducks are always so fun to see and play with!
I hope that you all have a great week!

We recently took our three year old granddaughter to pick strawberries at pick your own Blessington Farms located at 510 Chisholm Road in Simonton, Texas. We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed delicious strawberries! It was our first visit to a hydroponic farm and our first time to travel through Simonton, Texas, population 824. Simonton is only fifteen miles from Katy, just past the town of Fulshear.
In researching Simonton, I learned about an inspirational true story documentary filmed there in 2008 that demonstrates the spirit of forgiveness entitled, “The Heart of Texas.” I think that Katy and Fulshear residents should be proud to live so close to a town that is filled with wonderful people who were obviously touched by God. For a preview of the film, watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzcWkvizqEg&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DQzcWkvizqEg&app=desktop
What makes Trader Joe ‘s so special? After all, Katy has a zillion stores that sell groceries and other supplies.
What does make Trader Joe’s unique is its merchandise, prices and quality. Many everyday items are sold under the Trader Joe’s logo, which offers their customers access to high end products at great values!
Known as Pronto Markets in 1958 and later as Trader Joe’s since 1967, employees don Hawaiian style shirts and ring a bell when they need assistance. Ten to fifteen new products are introduced each week and the same number are eliminated. The innovative 12,500 square foot store set to be located at 2643 Commercial Center Boulevard, will be a wonderful addition to the Katy area in 2014.
