Boxing Day Shopping

Did y'all go out shopping on the 26th?  I did, but only a little bit.  I didn't get too much.  I don't love crowds and I kind of lost my enthusiasm when a lady at Target shoved me out of the way so she could get to some cans of Poppycock without so much as an "excuse me".

Here's what I got: at Target, I got my year's supply of Scotch Tape like I do every year after Christmas.

I got some Nerds for 49 cents...

I got a box of these jewels for my bedroom tree for $3...
and two packs of silver snowflakes for the same tree for $1...
I bought this at Williams Sonoma for $4.98...
and I got a pink back for my Nook with a Barnes and Noble giftcard...
 
I tried to spend my Christmas money, but have had no luck.  I first looked for another pair of Ugg House Shoes at Nordstrom, but they were completely sold out of ever single style.  I then decided to buy a Garment Bag from Vera Bradley, but I called the VB store and they were out of "Twirly Bird Pink" and I had decided that was the one I wanted.  I thought about buying a charging dock at Ballard Designs that was on sale, but the $12 shipping turned me off.  I have also been perusing Louis Vuitton, but my Christmas funds are a few hundred short to fulfill my desires there!  So I guess I'll just take that all as a sign and save my money!

So if you hit the stores, what did you get?

I wandered out to Target as well, but just wasn't motivated. Even with everything being 1/2 off I just couldn't do it. Have you tried the Zappos for the Uggs? I just got a pair from there and they got to me ASAP! I hope you had a Merry Christmas

I bought some Christmas lights for the exterior of my house. More lights for house and lights to wrap around the trees. I saved $58.00!! Glad about the savings- but I have to wait a whole year for the gratification. :)

What LV are you looking at? I am trying to sell one that I never carry so that I can get a new LV. It is a bad habit to have, but it is my addiction!

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.  …
