The Fence

I have been trying to get a new fence for months now. It is a shared fence and it is completely falling down. I have it propped up with 2x4's, but needless to say it is very difficult to mow. I just hold my breath every time the wind blows that it won't blow completely over! I have some very indecisive neighbors...have I mentioned that I hate a shared fence situation? I want board on board cedar and my neighbors say they don't care, they don't want it, they do want it, then back again!

I think we finally have the situation resolved. In two weeks the fence crew will be here and I finally put my foot down and said, it doesn't cost much more, so let's do the board on board!

On another note, I contacted the county rep who appointed me to that case I mentioned yesterday and told her that I have a conflict. I honestly think that the defendant deserves a defense and I cannot do that, thus the conflict. I have just received news that I have been un-appointed.

I've been out of town, so I have a couple of comments. First, I love your hair. I have naturally ugly hair and would kill for yours. Second, I love your new pots and lounge chairs. Everything looks so great- you are good! Also, can you please come organize my closet. I need your help. You might die if you saw my shoes. Finally, I'm so glad you got out of the appointment. Life is too short.

Oh joy, I am glad you got off the case too. After what happened to us this week I am very thankful there are people out there who love animals as much as I. I think you are doing an amazing job on your TO DO List, keep it up!

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.  …
