Pododermatitis

If you look up the definition of pathetic (and probably, p.o.'d),
you would see this photo.
I just dropped off my bi-weekly bag of cash at the vet. Lola still has the infection in her foot also known as pododermatitis. I don't think she was on antibiotics long enough, so we are in for another 2 weeks. We are also doing more antihistamines and a steroid spray on her paw. I have to be sure she doesn't ingest any of the spray because it will wreck her weak pancreas, so NO licking while wet. I'm a little stressed out by this whole situation!
Lola is just getting the feel for her E Collar (don't call it a lampshade collar or the pot smoker guy working at Petsmart will mock you...seriously). Right now she is running into furniture, because she hasn't gotten the wider clearance thing down just yet. That's okay, I do the same thing with my butt all the time!

Do you think this girl appreciates that I went to Petsmart so that I could get her a cute pink lampshade collar? Yeah, I don't think so either!

Oh poor Lola! I hear your pain with the collar thing....I love that you got her a pink one! I had no idea they came in designer colors.

I think if you let Lola come play she could maybe learn how to send flowers. I mean Winston is always up for teaching some one his tricks.

Good luck on the whole running into things...I was laughing so hard at this post.

Poor Lola. She has a great mom! Who knew the collars were so popular that you could choose different colors. I am amazed at the things they come up with.

Poor Lola! She looks so sad. It is hard being the Mommy- we often have to do hard things for the benefit of our babies.
Has she been taking advice from Lucy??? I am so sorry! I know what you are going through!

Poor Lo !!! Annie and Maisy feel her pain as they have both had this lovely experienced and felt just as dejected and embarrassed. I do like the snazzy pink though...mine was institutional white. Hope she gets better soon.

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.  …
