    Fencing Info

    With so many moving out to the boonies I'm hoping someone has some experience or recs for companies to fence our property. We need split rail fencing for some areas and woven wire for others. I know it's a long shot that someone here would have any recs for a company willing to go out to...

    Family vacation conundrum

    While it is still a ways away we are trying to decide on a family vacation for 2015. With me returning to work outside the home we will have more disposable income than we have had the past five years, however, it is not going to be so much extra that money for a vacation isn't an issue. We...

    "I don't like it. I don't like it one bit."

    Not the words you want to hear from your doctor. Went in to the dermatologist because I had a mole that was itching on my back. Luckily that was actually just a simple irritated hair follicle and taken care of without any issue. The four other moles that were removed, not so much. Skin...

    Any experience with Vet specialists?

    We have been dealing with a sick dog for weeks now. Blood work, fecal and x-rays are all normal but the minute Lucy comes off of her anti-nausea medication she is vomiting again and the diarrhea hasn't stopped no matter what she has been given. The antibiotics have cleared up the diarrhea...

    Which oven would you choose?

    I'm trying to decide between ovens for the new house. And cook and bake a lot. And if I could afford it and design it I would put both style in but it's not an option. I am just hoping some have had experience with them for feedback. I've always had the standard 30" double oven and our...

    Shampoo for kiddos curly hair

    Do you have a shampoo you like that works well with a kiddos curly hair. Our two year old has very curly hair that we struggle with getting tangled all the time. I'm not liking what we use and her hair does a little better when I use my conditioner on her but it is super hard to make sure it...

    Which Nook?

    My Nook croaked and I am blessed enough that we have the money right now to replace it. Reading is a significant part if my life and something I do daily, often late at night. I had the Simple Touch and liked it but didn't like the black and white only. I liked it was very easy to read out doors...

    We have officially joined the dark side

    Thanks to Jeff's amazing crew (okay and maybe a little of Jeff himself) our house is finally sold and we are no longer home owners. There are many things we will miss about our neighborhood and Frisco, but the knowledge that we will have our dream house on 5 acres near the lake isn't enough...

    What age for Speech Therapy

    It finally dawned on me a few days ago that what I thought was my daughter just getting too excited while she is talking is really her developing a stutter. It's not bad, but it is starting to become more pronounced and while I agree with her teacher that "it's cute" I made that mistake when...

    What cover for IPhone 5s

    after my last phone took a swim I got a new phone. Which cover so you use? Do you like it? What would you recommend? I absolutely hated the OtterBox I had for the 4 and needless to say I broke two screens and had it die after taking a swim it didn't help much. My niece swears by her Life...

    About what did it cost to put in your pool?

    I know there are a lot of factors. I'm just trying to get an idea since most websites give a huge variance anywhere from $20-60k plus and what our builder quoted to add to the build is more than we can afford. We would want a midsize free form pool with hot tub but not huge rock waterfall...

    FYI when buying a home

    Just a friendly reminder for those who are in the process of buying a home. When you write an offer, or are under contract, you do not have free access to the house at all times. You must have an appointment and be with your agent, inspector, etc. It is not wise to just show up unannounced and...

    Pen Pal for a young kiddo

    I am trying to find a pen pal for my kiddo. She is very young and really just likes to draw pictures and have me help her write little sentences to go along with it. I've tried multiple family members, including her older sister, only no one ever send her mail back and it breaks my heart when...

    Experience building your home

    Yes we are certifiably crazy. We are strongly considering building our home. So I am hoping those of you who have built your own home would share your experiences with your builder. We are looking at building on our own lot, so no subdivision and outside of city limits. We are meeting with...

    Feedback on surrounding small towns

    Trying to get some honest feedback from people who have lived here longer than I have. We are close to being done with the whole shindig of selling our home and are debating different areas in North Texas. We still need to stay within an hour of the Frisco/Plano area but I want rural. I also...

    Thank you for helping!

    I don't know who did it, but THANK YOU! I went outside to clean my drive way off so it doesn't turn into ice tonight and my drive way is perfectly clean. It is the only one on my street that is clean and I hadn't even gotten my shovel out. And believe me it had snow when we got back from...
