Operation Kindness is a no kill animal shelter. They have many dogs and cats available for adoption. They have puppies and kittens as well as older dogs and cats. They require you to fill out a form and adoption fees if you wish to adopt an animal. They may not let you adopt an animal from them if you do not meet some of their criteria (for example if you say you plan on leaving you dog outside all day or use your dog as a guard dog). All in all, they are a good organization with many workers and volunteers that really care about animals.
The Bridal Boutique is a small store that sells wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, other accessories, and wedding invitations. They have a good selection of sample dresses and they can also order from several different vendors. Their prices are very good and they are very friendly.
We used Paradise Cove for our wedding and reception. Paradise Cove is a site that holds wedding ceremonies, receptions, and other large functions. It is located on the shores of Lake Grapevine. They have a beautiful outdoor gazebo that is perfect for an outdoor wedding. They have an large seating area, dance floor, bar area, bridal dressing area, and outdoor patio that can be used for the reception. They are great to work with and will make your day less stressful. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Paradise Cove.
Miss Bloomingdales is a good place for childcare for ages 18 mos - 6 years. It is located in Las Colinas and is very convenient for anyone who works in the area. The teachers there are great, and they also have fun activities. In the summer, they offer swim lessons in their pool.
I have been a customer of Cingular Wireless for many years. Their coverage is pretty good, although there are several areas on my drive to work where I will get a weak signal. They offer a variety of plans and contract lengths. They do offer rollover on many of their plans, where you can use unused minutes the next month. The biggest problem that I have is going to their corporate stores (not the franchise stores). There is always a long wait to talk to someone that can help you. Since they are such a large company, I wish they would open up more locations, or at least hire more people to work there during the peak hours.
Traders Village is an outdoor flea market that is open every Saturday and Sunday. There are hundreds of vendors and you can find almost everythign under the sun there. However, you'll see tons of the same crap over and over.
Southern Maid doughnuts is a good local doughnut shop. They have a variety of doughnuts, pigs in a blanket, and a variety of drinks. They have a couple of tables if you want to come in and read the paper while eating.
Christinas is a good Mexican restaurant in Flower Mound. They have good margaritas and their food is great. They have a patio that is nice when the weather is nice. If you go on a Friday night, be prepared to wait.
Radford Cakery has great tasting cakes. They specialized in wedding, anniversary, and childrens birthday cakes. We chose Radford for our wedding cakes because they had the best tasting cake, and they were reasonably priced. They offer several different flavors. They were great to work with on making the type / style of cake we wanted.
Village Grill is a casual restaurant that serves all types of foods. Their food is good, and it is a nice change of pace from the 'chain' restaurants. They also offer catering.
