Ghost

I thought I had a ghost... okay, either a ghost or an intruder but I liked the idea of a ghost better. I started last Wednesday morning. I went out to get in my car at 6:25 a.m. and when I looked over at the passenger's seat, the seat belt was buckled. Now this was a lot for my brain to handle at that time of the morning, so I tried not to think about it; however, I did keep turning to check my backseat to make sure an ax murderer wasn't there waiting to kill me.

I only reported my suspicions about an intruder or ghost to a couple of people because after all, it does make me seem a little nuts any way you look at it. I was pretty sure that I hadn't buckled it though. I mean, why would I do that? If did do that, then surely I would remember.

I started locking my car door at night because I guess I was wanting to lock out the intruder or ghost.

Well, Jennifer just gave me a call and said that she figured out the curious case of the fastened passenger seat belt... she went to get her inspection sticker this afternoon and when she got in the car, she noticed that her passenger seat belt was buckled. As it so happens, I went to get my inspection sticker last Monday at the exact same place and I guess the buckled it then, but I didn't notice until Wednesday morning.

So, no intruder. No ghost. I feel a lot better about things now.

Abby suggested that I have a weekly post on Sex and the City, so I guess I'm going to do one day a week... maybe SATC Saturday. Ooohhh y'all, I've got a great photo to share for the upcoming SATC Saturday!

It was so nice having a long weekend. I caught up on a lot of sleep, read two books, watched College Football on Saturday, listened to Tech's game on the radio, did a little cleaning, a little laundry, a little crafting and watched 7 episodes of "One Tree Hill". I only have one more disk until I have finished season 1. Tonight is the first night of Fall T.V. premiers, at least on the CW, so that is exciting too.

I would have totally freaked out! Thank goodness you figured it out.

So excited about SATC Saturday. I hope I can wait that long for the next update.

We are headed to Lubbock this weekend if you want to meet us.

Thanks for leaving me the junkin' website. I actually found a charm on Etsy today and ordered it, but if it doesn't look cute when I get it I'm definitely contacting those other gals.

And, yes, I second Robin--you should come to Lubbock this weekend. It is, afterall, Robin's bday weekend! :)

I am so glad that you don't have a ghost. You can totally call me if you worry about these things because I can totally buy into it and I won't think you are nuts!!

I agree that would have freaked me out too. Glad you figured it out. Come to Lubbock. It would be fun!! (Disclaimer: I'm going to be in Dallas Friday and most of Saturday).

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.  …
