If you have not discovered a Home Goods store yet, you need to! I first discovered it at 23518 Westheimer Parkway in Katy, Texas. They carry an ever changing variety of items for the home that is high quality, unique, and best of all… discounted! I have purchased items for many rooms in my house, as well as some wonderful toys for Carina. Home Goods is owned by The TJ X Companies, Inc., which includes Home Goods, T. J. Maxx, and Marshall’s. Home Goods was launched in 1992, however my introduction to it was in 2013! Better late than never!
Having previously lived in Pennsylvania, where many people dreamed of owning a Toll Brothers new home, it was exciting to see them entering the Katy, Texas home market!

I hope that everyone is having a fun and safe start to the new year.
We will be welcoming 2012 at home with family.
This year, I resolve to be more organized and to continue to create a healthy, happy home.
I have seen “In this House…” plaques on a few blogs, and decided to recreate one of my own as part of my New Years Resolution.
Katy, Texas is the perfect location to participate in the Home Farming Movement! It has a terrific climate and a lot of open space. However, the movement is even adaptable to apartment dwellers that enjoy home grown fruits and vegetables. The movement was initiated by Triscuit, those wonderful crackers made by the Nabisco company. They have a great website to help you get started or to fine tune your existing gardening skills. Topics such as planning your home farm, starting a farm log, a crop guide, watering, spacing, raised beds, soil preparation, recipes, videos, and connecting with others are covered. Texas only has 235 home farms listed out of 53,525 nationwide. And… believe it or not… there are no Katy residents within that number! So, why don’t you sign up and be the first!
