It's Thursday

It is Thursday. For part of the day, it felt like Friday, but sadly it is just Thursday, which means that I am currently in class. I'm showing a video and blogging. Don't tell the college. The good news is that summer school ends next Thursday...yea! The bad news is that there is only one week between summer and fall semesters.

Today, I decided that I just had to have a nap to make it through tonight (this could be attributed to the large lunch I had at PF Changs). Anyway, I reclined in my recliner with a pillow and blanket and you know what happened? Let me tell you what happened...

First, Lola started squeaking her noisiest toy. The I took it away from her. Then she started eating. Why is this a problem? Because she ran in the kitchen, got a mouth full of food and ran to where I was and chewed. Crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch! Repeat. Crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch! Repeat. You get the picture. Then the little dickens stood on her hind legs at the side of the chair and nudged my face with her nose. When that didn't get her desired results, she ran to the end of the chair, grabbed the blanket down by my feet and pulled it off of me! It was at this point, that I gave up! Then you know what she did? Upon my getting up from the chair and scrapping the nap for good, she ran into her kennel, curled up and went to sleep! The little devil!

Well the joke is on her because after all that, I scheduled her for a trip to the groomer tomorrow, so she has to get a bath and won't be able to nap for several hours tomorrow. I'll show her who's the boss yet!

Comments

Ok... I understand the need to nap... but as I clicked to comment, I see Lola's adorable photo looking at me in the eyes... and I just have to say, that was pretty cute that she was wanting your attention...right then and there. haha

(oh, how fun to know what she was thinking!)

Hope you eventually got some rest.

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.  …
