It's the Weekend!

Yea! It's the weekend! I started the weekend yesterday with a trip to Market Street. I was looking for this...

Prosecco,
"The" Gentle-Sparkling Wine...

from Italy.

I read about it in the Dallas Morning News "Hot List". It is the "Hot Drink" of Summer. You know me, always wanting to be on the cutting edge (actually I guess that means I should be drinking the next new drink right now, not the hot new drink...whatever!). I don't drink often, but I do like champagne, so I thought I'd try this new sparkling wine after the week I've had.


It's pretty good, but I still like pink champagne better...or a gin & tonic.


While at Market Street, I got in on a flower sale. I guess they are doing it at 3:00 p.m. on Fridays during August. I got these beautiful hydrangeas (3 stems of them) for $6.
Lola started the weekend by getting a haircut. I really love fuzzy wuzzy Lola better than freshly groomed Lola, but she was starting to get knots in her hair, so it was time. You can see in the photo that she had so many knots in her foot (that she has been chewing on) that they shaved it.


While at Market Street, I got her a new toy...a beanie bone. I felt bad for her because she has been sick and been having to take so many pills. I guess I felt she hadn't received enough this week, what with the $75 invoice from the vet for the past pill order, $60 at the online vet pharmacy for more pills, $70 for a new bag of food from the vet, and $48 at the groomer. I really think it was a case of "what's another $5 for a toy!". It made her tail wag a lot and that is all that matters!
Usually a grooming makes her itchy. Here she is scratching her back by rolling all over the floor.
I feel bad because today I was suppose to be at my friend Suzanna's daughter Kate's first birthday party. I called Suz yesterday and flaked. They already had my present and I didn't have it in me to travel all the way to SW Fort Worth for the party. I am just trying to catch my breath this weekend and hopefully will manage to get my lazy butt to the movie theatre to see "Julie & Julia". If I go, I'll let you know what I think.

I love Market Street. I spend way too much of my money there.

Can't wait to read your movie review.

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.  …
