Well today is the day! Kohl's officially opened at 8 am this morning!  I can't wait to go shopping!  For those of you who shopping challenged this will make things even more convenient!  There is no reason to leave Fuquay Varina to find a great deal on many household, decorating and personal items!  I am sure that I will see many of you there!  By the way, if you are not sure of where Kohls is located; just drive down 401 and turn onto Lakestone Commmons Avenue. (by Applebees)  You can't miss it! I have posted some pictures from the Taste Of Fuquay Varina event that was held this past Saturday.  I hope that you enjoy looking through them.  I must say some of the cakes were just beautiful!  There were also some that were not as pretty to look; but they tasted amazing!  We tested 5 differ...

There are lots of things going on in our town and as usual I thought I would give you an update!  If you have driven down 401 lately you might have noticed some construction going on right beside McDonalds.  Well I have heard on very good authority that we will be having a "Cook out."  This is a great place for burgers and fries and once it is up and running you will not be able to miss the amazing scents drifting around it! Yummy! Another building that looks to be almost finished is The "Goddard School."  This is a preschool that is being built on Old Honeycutt; just one street down from 401.  I have spoken to parents whose children have attended "Goddard schools" at other locations and they have had many wonderful things to say about the programs that it offers.  I definitely recommen...

Just the other night, my daughter and I walked out to get the mail and we saw one of the most beautiful sunsets over Fuquay Varina, NC and Holly Springs, NC.  She said it looked like an Ocean of Pink and Purple.   We just sat in the rocking chaire on the front porch and watch the sky fade to black.  It was very claming and relaxing. Take a look a the pics below and tell me what you think it looks like!! Enjoy the Pics. Thanks,  Brian Wray www.Triangle-NC.com

There are few plants that have really done well at my home in Fuquay Varina, NC during this very dry summer.  These plants do well in most any soil and warm weather.  You can often find these in Holly Springs, NC as well. One of them is the Knock-out Rose.  It has lived and flourished well.  The other is Purple Heart.  Begonias are also good heat resistant plants.  Both are pictured below. All ofthese have grown and flourished during thie dry season.  Now keep in mind, I am not a plant waterer...if that is even a word. During the drought, I did not water anything, but luckily these plants stayed alive along with my Bermuda grass that loves the Hot Summers and Sandy soils of Fuquay Varina, NC.  I can not take credit for planting these plants though.  It was my wonderful Landscaping compa...

I recently received a full page color flyer with our Saturday News & Observer advertising Brighotn Forest, a new home community in the Fuquay Varina Apex area of North Carolina. Having buyers coming in from out of town in this price range, of course I had to go and preview the homes.  The  homes were lovely, as was the community. The stone and wood fence entrance was beautiful. A nicely landscaped and wooded street led to the beautiful pool area and clubhouse. What a nice surprise to see many families swimmimg and enjoying the pool, even on a Monday.           Brighton Forest is a community with 392 homesites. The Wynwood section has homes in the $280-$350,000 range. The Oakhurst section is comprised of homes in the $350- $450,000 range.  Builder team consists of Future Homes, Legacy Cu...

Fuquay Varina, NC is finally adding some real shopping.  We have always had the wonderful Wal-mart that we all love, but there have been recent openings that is starting to move the town even further forward. Finally Fuquay Varina has gotten their own Starbuck Coffee shop.  This has been long coming, but it opened up just over a month ago! The Biggest Grand opening is happening on October 1st, is the opening of a Kohl's clothing retailer.  This is a big deal, since the town has not had a major big box retailer out side of Wal-mart and Home Depot open in the past 5 years. I think this is the start of a major commercial growth in Fuquay Varina over the next five years. Keep it Coming!! Thanks, Brian Wray www.Triangle-NC.com

As always there is alot going on here in our "little" town!  For instance, have you noticed an increase in the amount of young children wearing helmets and pads lately?  No, they have not decided to practice dressing up for Halloween early, it is Football season in Fuquay!!!  The Fuquay Varina Athletic Association kicked off their fall football season this week.  I; being fortunate enough to be the proud parent of two future Bengal football players; have spent the last week watching a "sea of youngsters" practice football at Action Park.  If you ever want a good reminder of what football is really about I highly recommend coming down and watching these guys!  Their games start in 3 weeks and will be played at the Wake Christian Football Field and at the Fuquay Varina Middle School field...

Gotta Call Mimi the Clown!! I hope you are all doing well.  I live in the small or near the small towns of Fuquay Varina, NC and Holly Springs, NC.  These towns are with-in minutes of Raleigh, NC.  The reason I love these smaller towns are the festivals and downtown activities they provide for their residents.  Recently I sponosored a local Clown and Facepainting Aritist for the entire Town of Fuquay Varina at the local arts fesitval.    It was a great hit.  This allowed me to give back to my community in a really great way, and the kids really loved it!!   Enjoy some pictures I took of Mimi The Clown's Face Painting wonders.    If you are looking for a perfect childrens birthday party idea, call Mimi.  http://www.themelodymaker.net/index.htm.  She is REALLY AWESOME and puts on a great...

  One of the reasons that my family chose to live in Fuquay Varina is it's small town atmosphere.  Well, coming up on August 1st is another example of one of those wonderful things that Fuquay Varina does.   On Friday August 1st from 5-9 pm there will be the "Classic Car cruise-In!"  This will be the second time that they have held this event and it is really enjoyable to go to.  There will be music from the 50's era, classic cars and some great food too!  The Car Cruise-in will be held on the Fuquay side of town in the parking lot directly across from Cooley's.  For those of you who are not familiar with the downtown area just set your GPS to the intersection of Main St. and Vance St.!  I hope to see you there! Ifyou would like more infrmation about this event go to: www.fuquay-varinad...
