Dog = Kid

I know most people don't think I have any kids since I don't have any human kids, but let me tell you, I believe that my dog is just like a kid. I think even some of my friends would agree, as we are regularly comparing things Lola does to things their kids do.

Yesterday was the first day that we had to shake up or normal routine and get up early so I could make it to the 7 a.m. class that I'm subbing for. You wouldn't really think that would affect Lola much, I mean she wakes up, I feed her, she eats a few bites and then goes to lay on my bed until I leave, at which time she goes and lays on her bed until I return...how could waking up an hour early really shake up her world?

Well let me tell you, it darn sure did! She was IMPOSSIBLE all day long. Nothing could make her happy and it wasn't as if I didn't try. She ran through the house whining all day. She would get in her kennel and then that didn't work for long, so she would move to the couch until that didn't satisfy her. It was crazy all day long! This dog was just seriously out of sorts... just like a kid that is off it's schedule.

Today we are back on schedule for the most part, but sadly tomorrow is going to come and I'm afraid we will be in for it again since it is another early morning. At least it is a short week!

For some good news (for me, not really like any of you are going to care!), I received a call from my hair lady telling me that she has started back doing one day a week in McKinney. HALLELUJAH! I won't have to make my bi-monthly drive to Sherman any longer. She changed my appointment from tomorrow in Sherman to McKinney today. I'm so happy. My head always feels so much lighter after getting a haircut, its really like a vacation for my neck. I always feel like I lost at least 5 lbs. even though I know I really didn't!

Oh man I hear you...that week Chris was out of town was awful. It is amazing that they (dogs) can be just like kids. I love that your dog is your sweet baby, plus she is so darn 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.  …
