Party Goods

I'm hosting a Baby Shower for my cousin Jennifer in June. I guess this means I'm back on the shower hosting circuit after my self imposed year of being "done with showers!". She is having a boy, which means (at least in my opinion), not cute choices for party stuff. I went to Hobby Lobby to have a looksie today and was super surprised by their Party Goods selection as a whole. I say that with one caveat...their printable invitations selection has been greatly decreased.

For a little background, when my law partner, Jennifer, was having little Josh, I decided that I was going to have a Nursery Rhyme themed shower. Well guess what folks, there are no Nursery Rhyme theme party goods out there! Can you believe it?! I couldn't! I actually found bits and pieces from the U.K., but decided ordering from overseas for stuff that really wasn't that good in the first place was a tad bit excessive.

Okay, so imagine my surprise today when I found the following items at Hobby Lobby!


How cute are they. I also think they have some invites that are printable... I'll keep you posted.
They also had some other really cute party goods.
This was for a princess party...
But you know what I was thinkin'...

How adorable would these be for a fun bridal shower?!? You know for a fun lovin' girl who kind of thinks she is a princess anyway (yeah, I'm kind of describing myself, but still missing the prince in this equation!). In case you can't read them, the napkins say "Once Upon a Time" and the Plates read "and they lived happily ever after".

Here are just some additional examples of the cute stuff they had...



I say Thumbs Up to Hobby Lobby for cute party goods! (even though I still think you suck for not being open on Sundays when I want to Hobby...hey they could open at noon and their employees could still go to church!)

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.  …
