One out of Three

Another great aspect to having a cool house is that I'm able to sleep in my wonderful bed again. Don't get me wrong, my new couch is nice to sleep on, but I'm happy to be back in my room.

Unfortunately, my sleep hasn't been quite as nice as I had hoped.

Night one's problem is this cute little bugger...
I kept Milly overnight on Saturday. She was pretty tired, so she slept pretty good, but woke up at 5:45 on Sunday morning!
Night two was wonderful, uninterrupted sleep until my alarm went off.
Night three's problem was Lampshade Lola...
She's back to the constant licking of her paw again. Same paw, different side. This time it is the top. And it is some serious licking (non-stop). She had to sleep with me because her kennel doesn't accommodate the e-collar. She knocked me in the head with that thing a dozen times last night! I have a call in to the vet in WF, but he is off today. I'm hoping for a call in prescription for antibiotics to Walgreens.


Oh, and also I had a restless sleep due to a dream I had all night. I dreamed that I had moved to Mexico and was trying to go from grocery store to grocery store to find things to make dinner for my grandparents. I couldn't find red peppers or olive oil. I also remember seeing the big Target bulls-eye and a sign that said "Target Mas" and I was really excited that "we were getting a Super Target down in Mexico". What do you think this means? Do I need a vacation or have an obsession with Super Target?

I was cracking up about your dream. I don't know what it means, but I am sure you aren't obsessed with Target!!
I think I may start calling it Target Mas. I love it!

I love Target Mas! It is quite possible I have an addiction too.

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.  …
