Happy Blogiversary to Me, Happy Blogiversary to Me, Happy Blogiversary to Meeee,
Happy Blogiversary to Me!


Yes, today Legally Blonde's Proceedings turns one...this is the 330th post.
Don't you love my cake?
Okay, so it isn't really MY cake, but if I was having a party to celebrate my blogiversary, this is totally the cake I would want!

I've come a long way in a year... I have more readers (even though some of you are non-commenters...I can feel you lurking out there), I now have a snazzy design, I've had a give-away, and I find myself constantly thinking, "Oh, I have to blog about this" or "I need a photo of that for my blog".

I might have purchased myself a few blogiversary presents (well maybe not really, but once I realized it was my blogiversary, that's the excuse I'm using for my shopping trip). I took photos of the actual things I bought, but due to technical difficulties (aaarrrghhh!), I am posting photos from the internet instead...


Today I popped into Sample House because I was right there and they had a 20% off everything sale. I went ahead and bought my fall fragrance for the house. Now, I'm so ready for fall!

Yesterday I was at the mall and ran into Williams Sonoma. I bought the pink and green set of dish towels for half price. My towels were looking really ratty, so I was very excited to find such a deal. No, pink and green doesn't match my kitchen, but it is pink and I always make a matching exception for pink. After all, "pink is my signature color".

Last but certainly not least...



I got some Fab-U-lous black boots! I wasn't really in the market, but they were last year's left-overs so they were on sale and then I had a $10 off coupon...blah, blah, blah. You know the excuses!

Happy Birthday Blog! I agree that 330 posts for one year is extremely impressive. Glad you are blogging and that I get to read it!

Just because I am that kind of person I went to see how many post I have...three years later you are beating me by a sold 100 post. Way to go, if you were a sitcom, you'd be making a fortune in syndication!
Happy Birthday Blog! What a fun shopping day for you too!

Also not a lurker...but I really need to cut down my blog reading time...and get some housecleaning done!!! (...but this is sooo much more fun!)

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...

Real dress on Left~ Back-up on the Right Here are the sketches of the back-up dress

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.  …
