Home Again!

We finally made it home! Lola was released a little after noon today. I took her the chicken and rice this morning and she still wouldn't really eat (she ate a few pieces of chicken). The vet decided to release her because he said her condition was no longer "acute". She smelled like a cattle lot when we picked her up though. You know she is loved because nobody cared, everyone hugged and kissed on her anyway!

Here are some photos of Lola. You can see her little bandaged leg from where the IV was and then where they shaved it to put the IV in. She is very close because she kept trying to get in my face (I think she missed her Mom!). The photos are pre-bath, so just imagine the smell of a pee and poop as your read!

"Hey, I'm a schnauzer, not a poodle! Who groomed my leg like this?"
She still isn't normal Lola. She is pretty weak because she hasn't eaten and kept food down since Christmas Eve. The vet had wanted me to try and get her to eat this canned food for a couple of days, but she refuses. I've made the decision that it is more important to get her to eat something at this point than it is to get her to eat the canned dog food, so I cooked her another boneless skinless chicken breast. Good news, I think she ate about a third of it!!! I hand fed her some of the pieces, but she also picked up a few pieces herself and ate them! AND...she has kept it down for at least 5 minutes.
She is still pretty weak and still feels pretty rotten, so I've rescheduled an appointment that I had schedule tomorrow morning so that I can stay with her (right now she makes a weak little barking noise when I leave the room for too long, so I think that means she gets to sleep with me tonight). She is also too weak to jump up on the couch, chair, etc., so I hope she will still continue to eat, even if it has to be chicken for now.
Keep Lola in your prayers. I can tell they have worked and helped her get this far! She was really in bad shape a few days ago (in fact my Dad told my Mom today that a few days ago he didn't think she was going to pull through).

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.  …
