Wish List

I have lots of items on my wish list at any given time. 
Here are some that are on, or have recently been on my wish list.

This Kate Spade mug has been on my wish list for quite some time.  It echos my general philosophy after all.  Well cake and cookies!  Anyway, last week when I was in the Kate Spade store, I broke down and just purchased it for myself as an early birthday present.  
While we are on the subject of Kate Spade....I have let it be known that I adore the "Lacey" wallet that KS makes.  My super cute red and pink polka dot one had a manufacturers defect which showed itself after a few months of carrying it, so I took it back to the Kate Spade store last week.
While in store, I spotted this adorable new wallet they had called "Glitter Bug" in rosegold.
Pink & Glitter!  Are you freaking kidding me?!?  It was instantly on my wish list.
Unfortunately, they were not able to replace my polka dot one with one exactly like it, and after much persuasion on my part, I managed to talk them into letting me have the glitter bug!
On that same trip to the mall, I discovered this glass ornament at Neiman's.  Needless to say it's on my wish list, but I WILL have it before my Christmas tree goes up!
When I got the most recent Pottery Barn catalog, this pillow caught my attention.  I immediately texted my mom that it was on my wish list.  (Birthday and Christmas are approaching, so it seemed like a sure bet!)
Tory Burch Revas have long been on my wish list.  Last week there was a sale on them, and they are NEVER on sale.  So I decided to treat myself for completing my first weekend express!
Finally, a biggie on my list.  This Prada bag.
I covet this bag with every ounce of my being!
It's probably wrong to want a purse so badly,
but if loving the Prada is wrong, then I don't want to be right! 
It's not mine yet, and it probably won't be anytime soon,
but I love to visit it when I go through Neimans.
The holidays are quickly approaching.  What's on your wish list?

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 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.  …
