Fiasco Free Day

A fiasco free day...that's what I will be praying for when I go to bed tonight.


This afternoon, I got in my car at 5:00 to drive to Frisco to teach my 5:30 class. As I backed out of the driveway, I noticed my tire was leaving black marks on the cement (due to a mishap last year, I learned the hard way that this means I have a flat tire). I stopped, got out of the car and sure enough, the front passenger tire was flat as a pancake!


I alternated from trying to fill the tire with "fix a flat", to trying to fill the tire with an air compressor, to trying to call for a ride to class. I finally got it aired up enough to drive up to the corner and finish filling it up at Tom Thumb (though that itself wasn't free from fiasco, but that would just drag out this story even longer!).


I made it to class 10 minutes late but all of my students were still there waiting on me (that is truly a miracle)! I taught class and when it was over at 6:45, my tire was still full, so I went to a the only tire place still open. My intent was to get the tire repaired so that I wouldn't have to worry about it at 6:30 in the morning when I head back to Frisco for class. Of course, they said I needed new front tires, etc, etc., but they could look at fixing it but I would have to wait over 2 hours. I opted to have them fill up the tire with more air and take a gamble. So lets all hope that there is air in there in the morning and I can make it until after class to get it repaired!


I stopped at Walmart to get a new air compressor because I killed the other one this afternoon. Hopefully I won't need it, but I do know that I will be praying for air in the tire and just one day in my life that is free from some form of fiasco!!!!!!

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.  …
