Dreams

This is the last Puerto Vallarta post...at least until next year :)

This post is filled with photos of the resort. I stayed at Dreams Puerto Vallarta. It is an all-inclusive resort just south of Downtown. I chose this resort last year because it is in a portion of Puerto Vallarta where the mountains actually come right down meet the beach. The resort is a little older than some others (though they do have a new tower of rooms), but what this basically means is that they have a much smaller pool than newer resorts. Pools aren't really my thing because, well we have those here at home. I'm all about the beach, and if you are too, then Dreams P.V. has the best beach!

This design of this hotel is pretty ingenious. ALL rooms have an ocean view because it is very wide, but only one room and a hallway deep. This is the view from the hallway behind the rooms.
Here is one of the pathways leading to the rooms. They put out these candles at night to light the path.
Foliage on the resort. Are those bananas?
Yep, those are bananas!

There was a little show during dinner...
These birds were diving into the ocean for fish.

I realized the morning I was leaving that I didn't really have a "proof of trip" photo.
You know, a photo of me in Puerto Vallarta to prove that I was actually there!

I love looking at trip pictures. So fun. It also helps me decide if I need to visit that destination. I have already been to P.V. I really only like visiting a place one and then moving on.

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.  …
