Hola!

Hola! Okay, I'm seriously about to run out of spanish words I know... Gracias for reading! There! I'm done. That's all I know!

Well I have arrived safely at the resort in Puerto Vallarta. I lucked out on the plane and was able to get my entire row to myself. Upon arrival, they took our temperatures. Making sure we don't have the swine. Last year the immigration room had masses of people and it took over an hour to process through. This year, it took 30 seconds.

The taxi driver took me on the scenic route through town and I guess he thought I looked hip and happening because he showed me where all the "very good discotecas" (sp?) are located. I didn't have the heart to tell him that my late nights here at the hotel would be consumed with watching the Bridget Jones, Gilmore Girls and Jane Austen DVDs I brought with me!

Upon arrival here at the hotel, I tried to talk myself into an upgrade. I did, but it would have been on the 4th floor. I opted for my regular room on the 8th floor.

I won't be able to post photos, but I will try to blog regularly from paradise.

Off to unpack!

P.S. I cannot get the spellcheck to work, so you all will come to find what a horrible speller I am. Another funny, a lot of the blogger information is in spanish! If only I had learned some in all my semesters of it!

So glad to know that you are going to blog while in paradise. That would freek me out if the spell check didn't work on blogger.

Sounds like you have had a great trip so far. A row all to myself would make it the perfect trip to me.

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.  …
