The Strangest Dream...

I just had the strangest dream... I dreamed that I accidentally stumbled upon the fact that I was about an hour away from some special train that would take me to the Mall of America in about 30 minutes. However, the problem was that when I stumbled upon this magical find, I was wearing pajamas. I had to decide whether to go to the mall in my pj's or go back home and change. The fear being that if I went back home, I would forget how to get back to the train...

Odd because (1) it is way the heck longer than an hour and a half up to the Mall of America in Minnesota, (2) I've never been to MofA, (3) why the heck was I wondering around in my pajamas?

I think it has all been caused because I'm heading out today. I'm heading South and making a pit stop to visit "one of my kids" for a yelling (I thought one of the benefits of having no kids was not having to yell at teens for doing bad things!). Then I'm meeting my friends Abby & Brian for fun in Austin. Abby & I are hitting up the super big outlet mall down in San Marcos tomorrow (thus the dreams about a large shopping trip). We won't be able to shop for a super long time (maybe only like 5 hours) because we have a party tomorrow night which is the actual purpose of the trip. Lola will be having fun up in the country with her grandparents and little Milly. I'm sure I'll blog all about it next week.

Whatever your plans are, I hope you have fun this weekend!

Have a great time and a safe trip to Austin. Don and I are heading to Burleson, Texas, to watch a basketball game. Alex's team made it to the playoffs and this is round 1.

I have been to the Mall of America and actually it is very confusing because there are several of the same stores on different levels - so you never are quite sure where you are at. But it is definitely a great trip for people who like to shop.

That is one of my dream travel locations...the mall of America! I was looking through some Vegas brochures and discovered there is a Betsey Johnson in Vegas...I think I will add another purse and/or bracelet to my collection. I don't know why I didn't realize what great shopping there is in Vegas. We leave on the 16th!

Have fun with your friends this weekend!

Have fun! I've heard great things about San Marcos shopping but haven't been yet myself.

Enjoyed my first visit to your blog!

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.  …
