Saturday Lola Update

I went to see Lola this morning around 10:15. I went in to the clinic and said I was there to check on Lola. They said just a minute. In a few minutes out came a walking Lola on a leash! She was definitely not a perky "normal" Lola, but at least she was walking albeit slowly. Her eyes still don't look super alert and she wouldn't put her ears up much, but when we all said Hi to her, she gave her little stumpy tail a wag. She still has her IV in her leg, but they had just unhooked her from her fluids so that she could go on a little walk.

We went out to the vacant lot next door and made a loop. Then after bringing her in we all petted her, etc. and then I walked her back to the back to her her kennel. As I started to leave, she looked really sad and tried to follow me out. Of course, I started crying because she looked so sad.

They said that at the point I was there, she had drank some water and vomited it, but had eaten a couple of bites of food and had kept it down so far. They closed at 2:00 and I didn't hear any updates from them. They told me yesterday that if you don't hear from them, then that means everything was good and nothing was wrong.

I went to Wichita Falls today with my Mom and Meme. Again, good thing my family is so willing to part with large loads of cash this weekend to keep me shopping and help me keep my mind off of Lola! My Mom bought curtains, lamps, a mirror and other decorative stuff for her newly decorated bedroom. My Meme went for a new couch and bought the couch, a loveseat and a chair! Her furniture won't be delivered for a few weeks though, so I think she is going to have to reschedule her hosting date for the Maids and Matrons Club meeting. My Dad said she may have to look for a new house to have it in period, because Papa may kick her out for going on such a spending spree!

We got my Mom's bedroom almost done (still a few more things to do) but it looks like a completely new room! Although, right now Mom and Dad are arguing over whether they are ditching their alarm clock that is roughly the size of a Bose Wave Radio, but of course isn't near as cool seeing as they have had it since they got married in 1975!!!!

I am so happy to see she is walking around. That makes me feel better.

P.S. my parents have that same old school alarm too!

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.  …
