As much as I love to talk about Dallas public schools and what I’ve learned through talking with administrators, teachers, parents, students and school board members, nothing can replace the insight from a been-there-done-that family entrenched in the district. So I’ve come up with 10 questions (the same 10 I ask every DISD parent when I want to talk about their school or schools), and each month we’ll highlight a family who answered. Our inaugural edition will begin with the Homsher family, who live in Preston Royal. Mom Cindy Homsher and her kids – Natalie, Matthew, Nicholas and Catherine – answered our questions.

I am a huge fan of Duxiana beds. Not only have they changed my life by almost eliminating lower back pain and providing incredible body support, they have helped me actually get more sleep because when you are crazy about your bed, you actually want to get into it. Wednesday night — that’s tonight — you can test out a Duxiana while enjoying tasty hors’ doeuvres, a glass of wine and entertainment from the musically gifted students of Booker T. Washington High School. Get in some home decorating and gift wrapping tips as well Wednesday, November 30, 2011 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm at DUXIANA – 6134 Berkshire Lane, Dallas, TX 75225

Angela from Lane Florist will be on hand to show you how to make seasonal floral arrangements; Cody and Robbie from Terrain Horticultural Design will be spilling the secrets on one-of-a-kind Christmas Wreaths. And no more bags! Debbie Lynne with Lynne Wrappings will show you how to take your gift-wrapping skills from drab to fab.

Oh yes! Duxiana is so high brow, they are offering a COMPLIMENTARY EYEBROW SHAPING BY Bella with Wax and Whine.
