Packing Denial

As I am currently blogging, you know that I am in packing denial. That and that I have a load of stuff in the dryer that includes every pair of jeans that I might possibly pack.

I met Dad today and exchanged Lola. Here is a pic of Lo in the front seat of her grand's truck. Usually I make her sit in the back seat, but she looked so happy to be up there with him, I just let it be. She thought she was real hot stuff! You can see her face silhouette in the center of the truck...

She is so cute, I just can't stand it!

I have just written out a post-it note that represents every outfit I will need. On the post it I have the day, or time of day, it represents and what the weather will be at that time. Now, I have to go match up an outfit to every post it. I'm hoping this will prevent over-packing! I'm hoping it won't require a pair of shoes for every post-it! We'll see!

Your Friend,

Thanks so much for the scarf info!! We do have CC's so I'll have to check it out. Have a great rest of the week!

Ps...I HATE packing too! :)

I did that exact same thing for our disney info, I even went so far as buying two gallon zip locs and packing each outfit in it with the sticky label. Outside of the fact that the ziplocs slid all over eachother, it was the best packing decision I ever made! It was way organized for me!!

Good luck!! Will you be blogging on the road?

I will have to say that was the best packing Abby has ever done. I loved it, for when I needed to know what to wear.

Hope that packing got done. Oh and LOVE the pic of Lola! She is so stinking cute.

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.  …
