Twelve Cowboys Way is no joke, but legendary Dallas Cowboys quarterback Staubach did admit he had pulled an April Fools prank already Monday morning — on his unsuspecting wife.

“I was getting ready to come here today, and I woke up my wife and said, ‘Honey, honey! There’s a bunch of squirrels in the house,’” Staubach said with a fair amount of glee. “She woke up yelling, ‘What? What!’ — so I got my joke in already.”

And while they may have chuckled when asked if they worried an announcement as big as a new residential high-rise concept co-branded with a sports team might be treated with a little skepticism because of the timing — the middle of April Fools Day — Robert Shaw and Roger Staubach are serious about the project.

As you may have heard, Jamba Juice is moving its headquarters to North Texas. Specifically, Frisco. I want to note that the company, headquartered in Emeryville, California, will be getting $800,000 in grants from the City of Frisco and the Texas Enterprise Fund. Yes, that means that the company is getting a “bribe” to relocate it’s headquarters but that economic investment will more than pay off. More than 100 people will be relocating to Dallas to work in the company’s new Frisco office at 3001 Dallas Parkway.

The new digs include 19,000 square feet of office and meeting space and a 6,000-square-foot test kitchen and storefront.

Jamba Juice has chosen Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Real Estate’s new Plano office as their relocation team. In fact, John Maluso, sales director of the office, tells me Briggs has moved its entire relocation division to the new Plano location.

John was on his way to California when I spoke with him this morning. He said employees found out last Thursday that the move was taking place, shortly before the press release was released. John is flying out to meet with all of the JJ employees who have been offered relocation.

“The company thinks that even some of the employees who have NOT yet been offered packages will also relocate, ” said John.

Oak Street Front

The Dow Baccus Home at 7546 Oak St., a gorgeous Frisco Early American-style house built in 1905, was featured in the April 2012 issue Frisco Style Magazine as an amazing historic home updated to meet today’s needs. I could not agree more!

Oak Stree Foyer

This designated historic property in the Norris Austin subdivision near downtown Frisco is on the market for $514,900 after being completely remodeled and impeccably restored. This house has all of the historic charm and plenty of modern updates! It is a fantastic family home, too. Just check out the incredible treehouse in the backyard (I wish I had one of those growing up!) or the spacious kitchen.

Oak Street Library

There are four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and close to 5,000 square feet of space inside this amazing house. Just outside you’ll find a three-car garage with an attached apartment that is great for guests or as additional income! It’s plenty big for a young college grad who wants a unique space.

Oak Street Dining

This home has so many lovely fireplaces and cozy nooks! And unlike most homes built today, this house has a stunning foyer that is a great place to receive guests! The parlor has been converted to a library, but every other room remains just about the same in spirit.

Oak Stree Den

The kitchen is plenty modern and bright, too! There’s a huge island with a built-in gas stove, double ovens, and beautiful glass-front cabinets to store your china collection! There’s a sizable breakfast nook, too. It’s a great place for a family to gather for meals, homework, and more!

Oak Street Kitchen

The master suite features a gorgeous bath with a claw-foot tub and hex tile floor — an homage to the home’s history. It’s spacious and open, and with the two windows plenty bright. It’s definitely a selling point on this amazing historic home.
