Clothes, Jewelry & Furniture, oh my!

So here is the scoop on what I purchased at Canton yesterday...

I was about two steps into the first building when I saw this...
This dresser is enormous (77 1/2 inches long). I thought it had a fabulous shape and was a great price ($165) so I bought it right up. I have no idea how it is going to get to my home, but I'm hopeful Jennifer and I can make a trip in her husband's truck to retrieve it.


Of course one things always leads to another, so this means that I now have my Thomasville bedroom set listed for sale on Craig's list and am searching for the perfect bed now!


I went to Canton to buy a burnout layering t-shirt to go under my Tech shirt I bought in May. They were suppose to get in a red one, but it came in Aggie maroon, so black it was...
At the same shop, I got this cute little t-shirt too...
I mean it only made sense since it goes with the black shirt too...

"Peace, Love & Shopping"
The back (sorry this is a crappy photo)
Lisa went to Canton on Friday and told me I couldn't buy anything at my jewelry place. Since that was one of the places I was planning to shop, I demanded clarification from her and she said, "Don't buy anything Halloween". So here is what I got instead... a new Tech charm and a Christmas one...
Lola and I are pretty beat today. Too many early mornings this past week and too much shopping. I had lunch with my friend Jenn and her family who were in from North Carolina and haven't done much else. I have tried to watch "Duplicity" but cannot get into it. Maybe it's just me. I think I'm about to try "One Tree Hill" episodes instead.

Just hanging out, resting...
I know all mothers think so, but isn't she adorable?

I love your new bedroom furniture! I should have told you what I was looking for my bedroom.

Love all of your new finds!!

I especially love the Tech charm! How is it you can find cuter Tech stuff in East Texas than here in Lubbock?--Do the people you bought that charm from have a website?

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.  …
