Heard it on the Radio

Okay, I normally do not listen to the radio in the car, I listen to my ipod. I cannot stand the constant yammering of the radio personalities! I find that they are generally stupid and half the crap they say isn't correct anyway, much less its probably something I don't even care about hearing. That being said, I listen to our local Collin County radio station on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings when I'm headed to the College because they give local traffic reports. I have only recently started doing this because I got stuck in some major traffic jams (Can't wait until 121 turns into a toll road!).

I heard a couple of very interesting things this morning...

First, Rick Springfield is coming to Ardmore, Oklahoma to do a concert. Ardmore, Oklahoma! What in the world! My have far you have fallen Rick! I'm not even going to lie about it... I've been contemplating a trip up to Ardmore to see the 80's rock star. Not so much because of the music, but because as a big General Hospital fan, I can hardly pass up getting to see Dr. Noah Drake! Tickets don't really seem like Ardmore prices though, so I will probably pass it up, but it still seems weird.

Second thing I heard this morning was an advertisement for a radio show that will be airing tonight apparently. They said "We'll tell you about the 4 guys you should stay away from". At first I laughed to myself as I imagined like an actual 4 guys being named... (1) John Doe, Bill Smith, etc. I know that isn't what they meant, but it amused me for a few minutes. Then I thought to myself, okay 4 types of guys you should stay away from... there are only 4?!?! I don't know who made the list, but I'm guessing it wasn't a 32 year old single gal! I could write a treatise on the wrong guys, but then I started thinking about all my dating mishaps and decided to share one of the funniest/oddest ones for your amusement:

I was on a first date with a guy who was so disturbed by all of my curly hair that it was all he would talk about. "Has it always been curly?" Yes. "Do you straighten it often?" No. "Have you thought about cutting it?" Not recently. "Why not?" Well, most people can recognize me right off because of my hair. "Do you think that is a good thing?" Well, I don't really guess it is a good or bad thing. "Would you cut it?" Not for you! "Would you pull it back in a pony tail so I could see what you would look like without it?" Not a chance in hell! I mean jeez, you asked me out on this date! I'm not sure which of the four categories this guy would fit it, but if you listen to the radio show tonight talking about it let me know so that I can stay away from another weirdo!

I heart Rick Springfield as well!! Noah Drake 4 eva!! I saw him on Mike Hucabee's show last weekend- my in-laws choice not mine- and he seriously still looks 30!!

That guy is a jerk! He falls into all 4 apparently!

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...

Real dress on Left~ Back-up on the Right Here are the sketches of the back-up dress

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.  …
