New Frisco Walmart Makes Shopping Easier

(This post is hosted by Walmart. I was invited for a preview of their new store. All opinions are my own.) I'll be honest, I haven't always been a fan of the Walmart experience. I've always loved their prices, but there was a time when you really had to be ready for...

Makers on Main Opens in Lewisville

Discovering Kinokuniya in Carrollton

Don’t you love how bookstores are so much more than bookstores? I could get lost in one for hours, exploring all the titles and the interesting, more cerebral, unexpected offerings. “I love all bookstores. Once you walk into a bookstore, time stands still.” —Alec...

“I can’t wait to meet Joanna Gaines!” says the Cupcake as we’re preparing for our road trip to Fixer-Upper famed Silos at Magnolia Market in Waco. Either I oversold this little journey or she is one of those believe it and make it happen people at a ripe old age of 8....
