Feeling Lucky

I just returned from an afternoon of running errands... groceries at Wal-Mart, trip to the car wash where my car was restored to black from the grayish white that it has been for a month and a half, and most importantly 7-11 for my Mega Millions ticket.

I'm really feeling like by the end of the day I will be a multi-millionaire! I know I said earlier in the week that anytime I enter a contest or lottery I feel like I'm for sure going to win. You probably think I'm crazy for thinking this way, but here is why I do... I cannot tell you how many times I hear "Wow, that NEVER happens!". Now granted this is almost always in response to some run of bad luck I'm having and the person is explaining that this isn't their usually method of operation but some crazy fluke that has just for the very first time in the entire history of their business happened to me! You see, at some point, I figure that this thing that NEVER happens will turn around from something bad and will in fact be something good...like winning the lottery! FINGERS CROSSED!

More to my run of bad luck... I went to run all those aforementioned errands and accidentally left my bedroom door open. How could that be bad luck you are asking? Well that means that while I was gone, there were not one, not two, but THREE trashcans for Lola to pillage. I'm sure she thought it was better than a day at Disney Land, but I have trash galore scattered from one end of my house to the other! Good thing she is cute...

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.  …
