I began my long weekend with a much-needed-vitC-facial. After google researching spas in Katy I landed on the Medispa at Villago. Google did not let me down.
Farina was amazing and so kind. I explained my current skin concerns; think stress-filled-climate-change-bipolar-almost-fifty complexion. In a nutshell I was in desperate need of TLC. And, sshhhhhh, I even brought up the suggestion of Botox…. which she gently reassured me that I’m looking pretty good for my age but we’d go slowly. First the vitamin C facial followed by a light chemical peel next month and a consult next month if I’m interested in pursuing injectables.
We had a plan.
Tip: If you are in need of some honesty along with a healthy dose of skincare TLC make an appointment for a consultation.
Promising Fariba that I would stay completely out of the sun and avoid exercising for the weekend my weekend activities were a bit limited. Especially with the hot Texas sun.
But I just couldn’t sit in my hotel room – blame it on a little ADD.
After spraying sunscreen liberally on my fresh skin I escaped my hotel room. I decided to go visit my future home.
Just to be be clear I’m not a rule breaker. Quite the opposite. Just thinking I might be blurring a fuzzy gray line my stomach knots up. When I arrived I couldn’t help but want to peek inside it’s unfinished interior. I’m not sure if this is allowed but since no one was around and the garage door was opened I slipped inside.
I didn’t stay long. Just long enough to let my imagination furnish its empty spaces. A month can feel like an eternity when waiting to receive keys to the next chapter of your life. I’m just saying.
Breakfast Brunch Cafe
I had heard good things about this restaurant. I should have googled it before I headed here for brunch. I didn’t. I took a chance and not all leaps of faith pay off.
Tip: save your time, your money and possibly your patience and skip this restaurant. It’s noisy, expensive and the service is nonexistent.
I really don’t like passing along negative reviews. But, to be fair, I would hate not to warn you.
Being seated at a table for two in the center of the room I wait and waited and waited some more. The server eventually appeared and took my order for a cappuccino and left. 20 minutes later a cold cappuccino was delivered by someone else who then left. I waited and waited some more until I flagged someone down about taking my order. Not to be deterred I figured I had waited this long I could be a bit more patient for the chicken and waffels that looked promising on the menu. What can I say, I like chicken and waffles.
It eventually arrived (a bit over done and definitely not a contender in my places for chicken and waffels). On its heels, A family of 4 arrived, being seated inches next to me at a table for two. Seriously!?!
Ding. My patience expired.
I literally had to move my purse out of the way for them to squeeze in. I waved down a server (mine was no where to be seen), paid the very expensive check, and left.
Days are like roller coasters; lots of ups and downs and, if you’re lucky, a few loopy loops to keep things interesting.
The Royal Standard
My wonderful friend S told me about this hidden treasure. It’s conveniently right next door to the restaurant that I will never go to again. Which is a shame since it would have been nice to have the best of both worlds. But you can’t have it all.
This is a shop I could get in trouble with. I LOVE housewares. So much that I run out of space in my kitchen. I remember years ago my son threatened me if I brought home one more bowl… sigh…what can I say, I have a problem.
I curtailed my desire to buy one of each of everything and struck up a conversation with the lovely lady who worked there. Really wish I had caught her name. She told me they sell furniture too and once I get into my home I may go back to see what’s available.
It’s time to say sign off. I’m off to dream about my new house!
