  1. A growler is a container which can be refilled with beer. Usually in the half gallon size. It has a lid with a bit of a seal so the beer can last up to a week withou going flat.
  2. So we are getting a Whole Foods and a Sprouts in addition to the Stein Mart and World Market? Yea for more shopping options. But, that intersection is going to be a nightmare. It's already a mess on afternoons and weekends. I better start planning my alternate driving plans.
  3. The signs up so far are Stein Mart and World Market. I'd rather have a Whole Foods. My daughter needs to go gluten-free. World Market has some goodies from other nations but it's mostly imported home furnishings and nick-knacks. I like Stein Mart. it will give us another mid-priced clothing option.
  4. Are you ready for the bad news? We just had some contractors come out and give us bids for a patio. The Cinco restrictions require a minimum slope to all roofs (including added on patios). A 10' X 15' patio with stamped concrete would be about $10,000 with no extras. If you find another alterantive, let me know.
  5. We just moved out here to Katy last year. Some observations: Don't move too close to 99 or the Westpark. I grew up in Jersey Village close to the Sam Houston Tollway. You could hear cars day and night, inside and outside. Once that thing gets expanded, the road noise will be constant. People close to 99 are already asking for more barriers to be put up by to association to help block road noise.
  6. FYI Target and TJ Maxx opened this weekend. It's nice having shops closer to this end of the Woodlands, but I miss the trees that used to be on that land.
  7. Thanks for all the input. I was going to cout out Seven Lakes H.S., but we'll go ahead and look at homes that feed into S.L. Now, tell me about the shopping. I live up here in the Woodlands and I am begining to realize I'm fortunate to have access to this great shopping. Does Katy Mills Mall have any regular stores like Dillard's, Macy's or Sears? Do you have a Kirby's close? What about a Berryhill's? Thanks!
  8. We are going to be moving to the Katy area and I have some questions for those of you who are in the know. If you had to choose between Cinco Ranch High School and Seven Lakes High School which would you choose? Is there a Jr. High we should stay away from? Is there a problem with Seven Lakes H.S.? The reason I ask this question is we know some people who are moving so their kids won't have to go to Seven Lakes and will go to Cinco Ranch. I have also noticed that 7 out of 8 houses for sale in Cinco Ranch feed into Seven Lakes High School. What have you heard? What has been your experience? Thanks!
  9. Anyone know when Americas is going to open up? My husband has eaten at the Americas near the Galleria and said it was wonderful.
  10. Not yet. We are still getting things cleaned out and fixed up.
  11. We are selling our 2700 sq ft home on five acres. It's a two story, 4 bedroom 3 1/2 bath home. One of the bedrooms is a mother-in-law room with full bath and mini kitchen. We use it as an extra living room/game room. New granite countertops, lots of tile. The inside was painted last year. We fenced the entire property then installed two rod-iron gates and a gate opener. The sprinkler system keeps the yard looking great. There is ia large garage/shop with an RV storage on the side. The barn has three stalls, tack room w/AC, wash rack and water heater. There is a 120' X 90' lighted arena. This home is 5 minutes from The Woodlands and is close to great shopping, dining and hospitals. This home is in a subdivision that has deed restictions and allows one horse per acre. SOLD!
  12. We are moving and we are selling our full size sleigh bed along with the night stand, dresser w/mirror, desk and hutch. It's only 5 years old and in really good shape. It's dark wood and a really sharp set. I'm asking $950 for the entire set. Feel free to pm me for pictures.
  13. We went there yesterday and we were not pleased at all. I ordered a croissant with chocolate butter. They were supposed to heat the croissant so the butter would melt. Nope. I had ordered it to go and 2 minutes outside the shop I realized the croissant was not warm and there were four cold chunks of butter on my croissant. I waited 10 minutes for this? The chocolate was yummy but I was only able to enjoy it with 4 or 5 bites of my croissant.
  14. The satellite for the Houston Museum of Natural Science is open. As of the first day, they were about 85% complete. They have some great dino exhibits, geode/rock displays, a number of 'hands on' activities and a couple of other things. It's small but very interesting. Admission is free for the first week. Now, if we can just get the art museum to open something around here.
