Obsessed with my Nook

If you will recall, I had been straddling the fence about e-readers for a while.  Then I decided to take the plunge and request that my parents get me one for Christmas.  I settled on the Nook because, well I couldn't really discern any substantial differences between it and a Kindle other than the Nook had much cuter accessories, and you know that was all it took to push me over the edge.

If you will recall, I got this adorable Lilly Pulitzer cover for my Nook...
and I got this bag which is just crying out "Take me to the beach!", but sadly, it's only been to Nocona...

and then I decided that I preferred reading it out of the carrying case more often than not, so I bought a pink back for my nook so that it is no longer grey and boring....
Then today, I discovered these adorable Vera Bradley e-reader cases
(this is one of their new 4 spring 2011 patterns that were released today)


Isn't it so cute?  At first I thought, How adorable, too bad I already have a case...  Then I thought, But couldn't my Nook have more than one case?  Like different outfits?    So the Vera Bradley one may go on my wish list.

And just for the record... I LOVE MY NOOK!  I have read 7 books since Christmas.  I've been reading far too late into the night and I think that it is because of my Nook, so I'll have to work on that once school starts back next week.

Does Vera Bradly hold my friend the Kindle too? Hmmm...I see research in my future!

I love mine too and have read more in the last month than I have in a decade. I need to start finding the "free books"

I need one a nook or kindle- just not sure when I would have time to read if I want to ever sleep again. :) Hope your sinus headache is gone!

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.  …
