Each year on Gables Day, every associate company-wide, puts aside their normal daily work activities to volunteer in their region. Since 2000, Gables associates and vendors have contributed over 100,000 volunteer hours and $1,000,000 in goods and services. In 2007, Gables Day was dedicated to assisting several hurricane impacted neighborhoods in New Orleans. Gables was awarded the “2007 Community Service Project of the Year” by Multifamily Executive Magazine for the volunteer efforts in New Orleans contributed by Gables associates.

Pinterest is all the rage when it comes to home and apartment projects. We at Gables Post Oak wanted to put a DIY Apartment Fun Pinboard together of a few of our favorite DIY apartment ideas.
If you are unfamiliar with Pinterest, it is a virtual pinboard, that allows you to take any image from the internet and place it on a categorized pinboard. You can take any image from any website and add it to your collection. Let’s say you search Google for “Decorating Ideas” and you come across a website that has an idea you like, instead of doing it the old school way and bookmarking it, you can download the Pinterest bookmarklet, and add that decorating idea to your “Decorating Ideas” Pinterest board, to come back and view later.
Pinterest is also a great way for brides to plan their weddings. You can search Pinterest for “Wedding ideas on a budget” and you’ll get tons of images that match your search. When you click on an image, it will show you a how-to or where you can purchase what you are looking at.

We posted yesterday that our office will be closed tomorrow, May 8th, for a company wide event. That event is known as Gables Day and is one of our favorite times of the year as Gables Associates. Gables Day is a day we get the chance to volunteer and give back to the community. This year, we will be volunteering at “The Mission of Yahweh” which is an organization that aids and shelters homeless women & children. http://www.missionofyahweh.org/
We will be assigned to various teams who will be improving the Mission’s Thrift Store, Dining Hall and Chapel, Children’s Center, Playground and landscaped areas. Tomorrow can’t come soon enough!
It’s the first week of January and I already have broken my New Year’s Resolutions. I want to drink less, eat healthier food, reduce my coffee intake and exercise more. Sounds like pretty standard New Year’s Resolutions to me. I should be able to keep at least one or two of them.
I can admit that I have a tiny love affair with my smart phone, who doesn’t right? I decided to look for apps that would help me keep my New Year’s Resolutions.
Check out this article to help you find the right app for you Gables Post Oak. Are you going to download any of these apps? Let us know in the comments.

Over the summer, I got the chance to eat at Texas De Brazil. I instantly fell in love with the flavor of the steaks, lamb, chicken, etc; now I believe I am addicted. I recently tried Fogo De Chao and have to say everything was just as great. I have noticed there are more Brazilian Steak places like Villas Grill, Rafain, Boi Na Braza, just to name a few. Have you tried any of these places? If so, what is your favorite Brazilian Steakhouse, Gables Post Oak?
