Trying to Sass it up!

As you may notice, I'm desperately trying to make my blog more Sassy and Fun! As I mentioned in the previous blog entry, I ran across the cutest blog ever. I discovered that she purchased her adorable custom design layout from a company called Sweet Cheeky Designs who specializes in such for $45-85 each.


As most of you know me well, you know that I think diving in and doing something is half the fun, so I'm trying to amp up the sassy all by myself (also you know I can't stand knowing that someone else has something more stylish or creative than I do!). I have found some really fun new backgrounds and will be trying them out in the future as the holiday seasons change. Over the past 24 hours, I made several changes to the blog, including the addition of a blinkie.

At this moment, my creative energies (okay, some might call it my obsessive behaviors) are being limited by not owning Photoshop. I'm trying to remedy this by downloading another program that is suppose to be similar and free, but my lack of computer-savy skills are throwing up another Road Block (this is like the darn Amazing Race...Blog Version, just when you think you are getting somewhere, BOOM! another road block or detour!).

I'm going to keep on trying and hopefully I will be able to develop a blog at least half as cute as the ones that I found on Sweet Cheeky Designs!

I'm also in the market for a new and fun name for the blog, so if you've got any sugggestions, pass them along!

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.  …
