Thou Shall Not Tweet

Yes, look closely there... the 11th commandment, "Thou Shall Not Tweet"!

Just kidding, it's not really a commandment from God, but from the "God of Texas Tech Football"...

Mike Leach


You see, some of our players were on


and apparently some of them posted Tweets after the 1 point loss on Saturday night that Leach didn't care for, so he has outlawed the players from Tweeting on Twitter.

Tonight on WFAA, their infamous sports reporter Dale Hansen reported on this anti-twitter policy and said "maybe if Leach instituted a policy where Tech would kick field goals on 4th down when they are only up by 5 with 4 minutes to go in the 4th, they wouldn't lose by 1 point."  Preach it Dale!

I'm usually a Leach fan and normally love his gambles even if it means we turn it over after going for it on 4th down, BUT, I was very unhappy on Saturday night with the failure to kick the field goal!

such a terrible coaching decision....and still painful to think about!

Leach is not my favorite person right now. I couldn't believe they didn't kick the field goal. That game took at least two years off my life.

I think there were many bad decisions over the course of the game. I heard Leach called a different play and Potts changed it at the line. Quarterback sneak is the worse play possible. Hopefully we get it together before next week.

That it too funny! One rule I have is that when we are watching football, I won't let anyone yell at the coach since my dad is one. But, I may have reconsidered on this one!

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.  …
