Mellow Yellow

I saw an attorney in court this morning with what I am assuming were painted toenails...they were painted yellow. Now I know that some brands such as OPI has come out with some funky colors this summer, but I want you to know just how bad the idea of yellow is.

For one thing, it isn't a truly opaque bright yellow, so you cannot actually tell for certain that it is toenail polish (as opposed to just yellow toenails). Considering that they make medication to correct the problem of yellow fungus toenails and that they advertise it heavily, I'm surprised that someone would think it is a good idea to (1) manufacture yellow polish, (2) choose it as a color, or (3) continue to wear it after seeing it painted on your toes.


Lisa was disappointed that I didn't tell the attorney in court that her toes were really horrendous, but I really didn't feel like I knew her well enough (Lisa said sometimes things are so horrible, you really just have to say something even if you don't know the person, but I'm not sure about that sage advice). If you have been considering yellow polish, I say to you as a friend "DON'T DO IT". If you have made the poor decision to wear yellow polish already, I say "Take it off. Take it off right now! Throw the bottle away and nobody will ever need to know about your slip in judgment."

It's called "Need Sunglasses?" but should
probably be called "Need Fungus Medicine?"

That is one of the colors Emery would totally think about choosing, thankfully it's not quite bright enough so she'd go on to purple or blue.

Do not listen to Lisa, you can not just tell anyone their tonail polish is terrible because maybe she had a fungus and was painting it yellow to hide the fungus!!

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...

Real dress on Left~ Back-up on the Right Here are the sketches of the back-up dress

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.  …
