Hand Sanitizer

Okay, so people are still a little Swine Flu crazy around here as you might have gathered from my report about them taking my temperature before allowing me to enter the country. I swear I have never been so nervous to have my temp taken before!

All around the hotel I have noticed they have these very nice looking "soap" dispensers sitting around. On them they say "hands sanitizer". Last night as I waited for the hostess to seat me for dinner, I thought, "why not" and took a big squirt. As I started rubbing it into my hands, it immediately hit me, "this is not your average American hand sanitizer". It felt like you were rubbing liquid soft soap all over your hands. I kept telling myself it would get better, so I kept rubbing and rubbing. No luck. Once you finally rubbed it all in, your hands felt super sticky. I may end up with Swine, but that is the last of the Mexican Sanitizer I use!

On another note, I am thus far enjoying traveling alone with one exception.... the comments. Everyone has to comment on my aloneness. It is really getting annoying. I'm getting "why?". That one is easy, last minute trip and I didn't know anyone who could or would come with me. "Why are your not married?" That is another popular one with a more and a more difficult one to answer. I swear the next person that asks, I may conjure up a lie and tell them this was my honeymoon, but my fiance died (ran off, i dumped him, and a multitude of other excuses could be inserted here). Maybe they will stop asking!!!!

Funnily, I tried to blog earlier today, but got on a computer with a mexican keyboard instead of an american one and I couldn't find the @ key, so I couldn't log onto blogger! I have had a very enjoyable day doing nothing but laying on the beach, being served drinks and guacamole while reading an ENITRE novel. According to my e-mails, my poor business partner has been having a horrible day, so I feel bad. (a little bad) (not so bad, i wish i was there and not here!)

Adios!

What book did you read? I am looking for a good book. We are going to be traveling a lot in the next few weeks and need something good to read.

Yeah, I want to know what book you read also.

Maybe sanitizer got lost in the translation and it's actually soap! You will have to tell me where you went! It sounds oh, so fab!

People ask too many questions! I'm glad you are having a good time!

I got my Tech bobble. It is so cute. Now I just have to find a necklace.

Have a margarita for me!

I am sorry people are asking you lots of questions. Tell them that your fiance had swine flu and got pulled when they took his temperature...your just tragic about it and all!

I love guac and margaritas. I'd love to be sharing in your fun!

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.  …
