Blog, and you shall receive

Apparently, if you blog that you want something, you receive it! My Mom read on my blog that I was greatly wishing that I had a homemade blackberry cobbler, so she made me one yesterday.

Mom was going to drive it to me here in McKinney, but Lola changed the plans. Lola started showing signs on Wednesday (then on Friday and again yesterday) that her pancreas might be getting off-kilter, so I decided that we were going to go to Nocona last night so that we could go see our favorite vet in Wichita Falls this morning. Lola's bloodwork looks pretty good (maybe not normal, but probably her version of normal), so for now, she is on a couple of days medicine to try and get her tummy back in order. She had a little fever and was a little bit dehydrated too, so after the vet, we made a stop by my favorite snow cone place on earth, Bahama Bucks. I miss having a BB close and they have one in WF, so we hit it up before we left town.

Lola got her own little snow cone (minus the syrup)



For one more problem, my air conditioner seems to be having its yearly flare up. It is cooling a little (thank the lord), but it is running non-stop because it won't cool enough. I called the home warranty place who sent me to an a/c company who cannot come until Wednesday. Wednesday!!! I was sure hoping to get his in order by tomorrow. Wish us well in this heat!

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.  …
