Meet Charlotte 

The Woodforest Moxie

I came to WOFO in 2009 as one of its early settlers and because I’ve met so many people and am out and about so much, I’ve earned the title “Woodforest Moxie,” which essentially means I’m the go-to gal for anything Woodforest. Click here for my bio!

Summer Just Isn’t Long Enough

Admitting a weakness here (oh good, you were sitting down). Sometimes I get a little too focused on Woodforest, especially when it comes to having fun. You can’t really blame me — there IS a lot to do here, especially for the kids. Heck, there’s a lot to do just at the Forest Island family pool — playing “don’t fall of the log,” zooming down the 42-foot water slides, creating a splash with water volleyball. And then there are all the playgrounds, the zip line, Lily Pad Splash Pad, the children’s merit program, the junior golf program…. See, there I go again....

 

For the Design Diva

Do you remember when you first stumbled upon Houzz.com?

That digital warehouse of design ideas literally changed my life — and certainly changed the number of home magazines arriving in my mailbox each month. (Don’t worry, Southern Living — I will always and forever be a subscriber.) Read More...

Oh, to be a kid again!

We’ve all wished to be a kid again at least once, right? Especially when all those adult responsibilities start weighing you down — those times when you say, “It’s okay, Mom will do the laundry/dishes/take out garbage” — and then you realize YOU are Mom. Read More...

Who’s Up for Some Glitz & Glam?
Have you heard the saying that life begins at 50?
 
Well, the folks at Bonterra at Woodforest have me convinced that life begins at 55! These people know how to have a good time. Just last week, they had a Mardi Gras celebration at The Club at Bonterra that would have left this girl wanting a nap! There was food, drink, music, decorations, beads (and no, they aren’t saying how they got them) and even a King and Queen of the Ball. And this was just one of the events happening in February.

For the Newbies!
Have you heard? Woodforest is among the 50 top-selling master-planned communities in the nation. (Again!) Our fab builders sold 337 homes last year, which means there were a lot of new people moving in.

So this column is devoted to all the new residents and helping them feel at home in their new hometown. Read More...

What Do You Want This Holiday?
You know what I really want this year? Time.
Can I hear an “Oh, yeah!”
 
But I’m not talking about time to do more errands or chores. I’m talking about time with my family, time with my friends, time to do good in the community and — maybe — even a little time for myself. Read More...
Holiday Lights? We’re Turning the Power On Wednesday
It’s me again, and this time with a tip that will put the “perfect” into your holiday season — head to Woodforest Wednesday, Dec. 6. Read More...
Let’s Talk Turkey
Crisp skin, juicy meat and rich flavorings — turkey is the centerpiece of my Instagram-worthy Thanksgiving table.
 

But let’s get real, I’m not a talented turkey chef, I’m a talented turkey shopper. Read More...

 

Lasso in Some Terrific Gifts This Week

One of my favorite gift-buying excursions is going on this week and nope — believe it or not, it is NOT the annual Woodforest trip to the Nutcracker Market. Read More...

Party Like It’s the World Series

Not that I really ever need an excuse to host a party, but the Houston Astros have pitched one heck of a reason — the World Series! (And if you didn't know our boys were playing, then you’ve been living in a hole underground — far underground.) Read More...

Here’s to a Spirited Halloween

I love Halloween. Seriously. In fact, some of my WOFO pals say I go a little overboard. And living in Woodforest feeds my passion with not just one but TWO Halloween events — the annual Trail of Treats for our precious little ones and the Howl-O-Ween event (my fav!) for our four-legged loves. Read More...

Getting Real About Homecoming

Do you remember your high school homecoming? All the excitement, wondering who was going to be named King and Queen, who was asking out who, the dance, which past graduates might be at the game? Read More...

85 degrees in September? Sounds good to me!

You know, some people talk about just how hot it can be in Houston, but me? I like our weather! You can be outside all year long — except for maybe a few pesky days in January and February when the temp drops into the 40s. Read More...

A Culinary Garden of Eden

Okay, here's a tip for all of you new WOFO residents. Eden Café, just a few miles down the road at FM 1488 and Egypt Lane is about to be your go-to restaurant for whatever you might be in the mood for. Read More...

Lily Pad Park and THE Party Pavilion

I love hosting parties. LOVE IT. But — and I bet the rest of you savvy moms and dads agree with me — I don’t always like to host 20+ excited kiddos at my house. Read More...

A Well-Deserved Shout Out to The Church at Woodforest

Maybe I’m a little jaded — it honestly takes a lot to amaze me. But without a doubt, I’ve been amazed by what The Church at Woodforest has accomplished in only about two years of existence. Read More...
