Hair

So this post is a little aside from the vacation posts, but it is kind of vacation related. You see, my hair lady is not what you would call flexible. I have to schedule my appointments 16 weeks in advance and if something comes up, well then you are basically screwed.

I had a hair appointment scheduled for yesterday, but when I went to schedule my last minute trip to Mexico, I realized that it would have to be changed. I originally checked on leaving a day earlier and then coming back a day earlier to accommodate my appointment, but it was going to cost $400 more. I called and attempted to change my appointment with no luck. I asked if there was someone she could recommend to do my hair and she told me about this girl here in McKinney.

I went to see Summer today. She has been in McKinney since January, but before that she was with a boutique salon in Highland Park and before that, she trained stylists for Toni & Guy. I really hoped she wasn't going to turn my hair purple or anything, but shoot, I figured I would give it a shot.

Let me just say she was fantastic. I'm totally going to her from now on. She got the color instructions from my "old" hair lady and then tweaked it. I think it is super fab! She straightened it too, so I feel like a movie star!


Here is a shot. It is so rare that it is straight that I felt the need to chronicle it for my blog!

I love it! (Of course I love the cury hair more, but so fun to have a new look for a couple of days!!). I'm so glad you found someone new. I wonder if I will ever make that leap of faith.
I haven't seen your hair straight in YEARS! It looks great.

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.  …
