Too Much

I may have mentioned this...


If I haven't mentioned it, then you may have caught on anyway...


But, this little sassafras
lola
Is a little bit (read: a lot) spoiled!

I know I blogged about how she didn't need anymore toys for Christmas.

Well this is how the toy situation stands post Christmas...
toys
AND pre-birthday! (Lord help us, we may have to add on to the house!)

I swear that on any given day she has a third of these toys out and strewn all over the darn house. I actually did a round-up of toys today and I had to gather up three armloads of toys!


I know, I know. Many of you are saying "Why don't you get rid of some of those?". She actually plays with them all. There will be things I forgot we had and I will see it sitting on the floor of some room. I have made a decision that we do not repair toys that get torn or worn out anymore (unless they are really important ones because we have a hierarchy of toys here in this house you know).

And I know everyone says their kid is super smart, but let me tell you that this pup actually knows the name (the name I've given to the toy) to almost each and everyone of those toys! I say Go find your purple elephant (because we have pink ones too) and she comes back with the purple elephant! Smarty pants! Correction: Spoiled Smarty Pants!

I think it is wonderful that she has a selection. I mean think of it as shoes for you...Wouldn't you get tired of the same 3 or 4! She would too...

Winston sits right up there with Lola on toys. Actually we now have 3 baskets that hold his toys in the house. He even has multiple of the same toy b.c he loves it so much!

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.  …
