A “Green” Easter from the Farmers’ Market at LaCenterra in Cinco Ranch

Easter Bunny at LaCenterra Katy Texas

Hippity-hoppity, Easters on its way!  If you’ve got plans for a backyard Easter egg hunt or a gathering with family, consider these tips from the Farmers’ Market at LaCenterra in Cinco Ranch to make your Easter eco-friendly and egg-cellent.

  • Avoid the plastics! Instead of artificial and imported baskets, use containers you already own for Easter goodies.  Dress them up with ribbons or scraps of fabric.  Opt for paper crinkles, (often found in the gift wrap section), in your basket instead of pesky plastic grass.
  • Gift healthy. When giving sweets, look for fair-trade or locally made chocolates to support independent farmers.  Consider balancing the sugars with granola bars, trail mixes or other Read the rest of this entry »

Birthday and Christmas Chaos at Katy Mills Mall

Being a Mom takes precedence over being a Katy TX Realtor. (Unfortunately, I don’t think my kiddos would necessarily agree with this statement.

I love my children and I love my professional life, too. However, when faced with a decision between being a Mom and a Realtor, of course, I chose parenthood.

My daughter turned 17 on Saturday. It’s almost impossible to think about how old she is and how soon she Read the rest of this entry »
