The Most Fantastic Day

Well, Spring Break is in full swing. Not much exciting going on (as I've mentioned), but I have had a most fantastic day. Not a day where everything went perfect mind you... here are some examples of the bad parts:

(1) I went to the courthouse for a plea. The District Court my case was in, was locked up for Spring Break. No biggie, I can go to the auxillary court for this plea. Except...the file was locked in the judge's chambers and it took 45 minutes to find someone with a key who would unlock it and get the file. Then it had taken so long to find the file, that I got put behind the contested matters in Auxillary court and just for a reference, those hearings are at least 40 minutes each!

(2) My new neighbor is having tiling done. They have had the saw set up in the garage, which I could hear and was annoying, but tolerable. Today they moved it to the back patio which is about 6 feet from my kitchen and thus sounded like it was running in my kitchen ALL DAY LONG! Needless to say, my nap I was so wanting to take didn't happen.

(3) I have continued to blow through 1 box of kleenex today.

(4) Earlier at the outlet mall I discovered two credit cards missing (since when?) and have spent 2+ hours on the phone trying to cancel without any luck on one of them until my bank opens in the morning. AAAAHHHHH!!

Anyway, I point out all the horrible parts of my day to let you know how much certain things provide a HUGE pick-me-up for me... Although, it should be mentioned that I was still on a bit of a high this morning because I did return some make-up yesterday and exchanged for some that I like better. You all know that new make-up is a huge high for me and it hadn't burned off this morning because I was just getting to try my new fabulous blush! In addition to make-up my other two addictions and things that give me huge purchasing highs come from purses and shoes. Well, I think I hit the jackpot today!

Below is my new purse that I got at the Coach outlet. I've been eyeing it for a while and today I just went on a "looking" trip with Lisa, but it was on a huge sale and I had to purchase (they were running dangerously low!)

And as if that wasn't enough... I got these fabulous shoes at Neiman's Last Call! (and they are the Cole Haan's with Nike Air technology, so they are reasonably comfortable too)
Needless to say, with the purchase of make-up, shoes and a purse within 24 hours, this high may not wear off for days. Seriously, why do people need drugs and alcohol?

Fabulous.LOVE LOVE the Purse...I think I would LOVE LOVE the shoes too if I ever had occasion to wear such.

I need make up. I may schedule a trip to visit you and make you go make up shoping with me!!

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
