List Help


I am publishing my list of "To Do's" for the weekend. To be realistic it may be more than one weekend's worth of "To Do's" and if so, that is okay, I just want to publish it so that I feel like my blog readers are holding me accountable! You see, I do need someone to hold me accountable or I may never get it all done... Lola isn't so good at this because she would just assume that I sit on the couch and read or watch a movie as long as she is getting petted in the process!

Outside: (I'm already making an excuse on this one...It is raining today)
Repaint outdoor furniture
Paint flower pots
Spray for weeds in the backyard
Buy dirt and mulch and spread
Move plumaria plants from garage to backyard
Buy flowers to plant and get them planted (you'd be surprised how often I do step 1 and not step 2!)

Inside:

Usual litany of laundry, clean house, unload dishwasher...
Box up all Easter stuff
Continue working to organize closet (specifically shoes)
Clean out garage (it's a hazard)
...Now I plan to get right on this list just as soon as I am finished watching Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday's episodes of General Hospital. :) Hey, Helena is back, what do you want from me!

The list looks pretty long for a week. You can bet I am not brave enough to post mine...it would be way to long!

Oh and I know we will never tell the groomer "summer cut" again. Thanks for the egg kit tip too! You ROCK SISTER!

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.  …
