Great White Huntress

Lola, the great white huntress has succeeded tonight. I came home from class and let her out to potty. As soon as I opened the door and stepped out onto the patio, I could see a little mouse running along the back fence (the bottom horizontal slats). It all happened too fast! Lola saw it as soon as I did, so there was no keeping her inside. She darted after it and I'll be darned if she didn't catch him. I got her to drop him and saw his little tail moving, but then she grabbed him again, and the chase was on (this time between me and Lola). I finally caught her, got her to drop the mouse (which I presumed was dead by this point) and drug her into the house. I went back out with my craptastic flashlight, but couldn't find a mouse corpse. I'll have to wait until the sun is up to initiate the recovery of the corpse. I'm hoping that the little guy was just stunned and was able to recover from the heart attack that he probably had and run off.


Lola appeared confused that I wasn't proud of her, but you know I love the little mice. I cohabitated with one in Lubbock for a good year. He would run back and forth behind my desk and sometimes come down the hall and look in my bedroom at me when I was up on my bed reading. I had to look all over Lubbock for 6 months before I found a trap that would trap him, but not hurt him. Of course, I never was able to catch him. Guess Macy wasn't as into hunting mice as Lola is!


UPDATE: The mouse is dead. On a later potty trip outside, Lola found her prize and after another chase (again between Lola and me), the mouse has been thrown over the fence.

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.  …
