Poof! Your Wish is Granted

Today was one of those crazy days where I felt like if I spoke it, then poof, my wish was granted! 

Jennifer and I were out and about avoiding working and we went to a new shopping center to see what was open already and what was soon to come.  As we headed into the shopping center, I said I wish they had a cookie store because I could really use a sugar boost this afternoon.  As we turned the corner, poof, The Great American Cookie Store!

Then I noticed that it was next door to The Purple Cow (a burger place).  I said, That's great, but I wish we were getting some really good places here like Twisted Root Burger Co.  We drove on and what did we see?  A sign in a window that coming to that location...Twisted Root Burger Co.!  Seriously!  Then we drove on and saw that another one of my favorite restaurants, La Duni is opening there also!  We are also getting a Freebirds, Glorias and Patrizios.  I'm so excited to have these really great restaurants so close!

Then we went across the street to another new shopping center to head in TJ Maxx (Jennifer was looking for something).  I said While we are here, I'm going to check and see if they have the Sarah Beth's jam I like (for your reference, I love SB's Strawberry Peach jam, but it is hard to find and they don't even sell that variety at Williams Sonoma and I hate to have to have it shipped from NYC and pay shipping.).  I kid you not, they had it right there on the shelf!

At this point Jennifer said, "Wish for a million bucks!  Everything you say is happening!".  I did, but it didn't happen.   It sucks that apparently I had uncovered a genie, but didn't know it and wasted my three wishes.

I love a "good luck" kind of day.

wish for me to magically be home tomorrow and for there to be a Gloria's opening in our town. :)

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.  …
