These crisp mornings have made it a challenge to ride Fabio and I love it! He simply wants to run and run around the arena. That gets me warmed up with my adrenalin rush. My pugs and Webster the Chihuahua are also “feeling their notes”.

It’s been a year since Paul Kraft, the medical miracle man, started me on my special cocktail of ingredients to restore aging skin to its supple youth appearance. I can honestly say Paul has the magic touch. My skin hasn’t looked this good in years.

So that also meant I needed to get the infrastructure in order! LOL. My trainer Amy Illitis has been kicking my butt. This is a good time to start a “major overhaul” in advance of the New Year.

Congratulations to my friend builder Philip Carter. His company, Christian Custom Homes practically swept their categories at this year’s Dallas Homebuilders Awards winning 12 of 14 categories they entered. Located in The Hills of Kingswood in Frisco. An amazing feat, especially considering he’s one of the area’s newest and most innovative homebuilders.

I spent most of the rainy month of October moving from our offices in Dallas’ Preston Center to new offices in Las Colinas. Gary Riggs couldn’t wait to get his hands on this new work in progress. This is the halfway point. I’ll show you the completed Office “Bungalow” in December.

It’s almost time to make Christmas cookies so I’ll be sharing my Jocie’s Chocolate Crinkle Recipe. Check it out here.

Oh, and be sure to watch “Designing Texas” next month for the return of Jocie’s Favorite Things. I’ll be giving some items away just in time for the Holidays. Want the latest and greatest eyelash mirror ever? What about a hair consultation and makeover with my longtime hairdresser Casey Gutierrez at Aura Salon on Cedar Springs? Jewelry anyone? The start to a new line of skin care? And that’s just the tip of the so-called iceberg!

This month… Home is…where giving thanks begins!

See you next Month!
