Bad Hair Day

Lola had a grooming appointment today. We have been using the same groomer for a couple of years now. Pet Pazazz, doesn't that sound peppy? The owner, Kathy, is Lola's actual groomer. In addition to being really nice, she has always seemed to care about Lola. If Lola had been sick, she would get her done pronto, so she didn't get too tired.

Anyway, it has been a while since Lola's last grooming, so today she had an appointment. When I walked in, it looked the same, but something was different. One thing that was different was that Kathy wasn't at the front desk. I started looking around and noticed that Kathy's adorable puppy wasn't there and some of her photos were gone too. So I asked the lady who came to get Lola from me if they were under new management and she said that Kathy had died 3 weeks ago and they had just re-opened! I would estimate that Kathy was only in her 50's!

I of course was super sad for Kathy and her family, but also for Lola. She was so used to Kathy and she always did such a good job. Ladies, you all know how hard it is to find a good person for your hair! Well, Lola is experiencing the pains of a new hair person...

She actually looks pretty disgusted doesn't she?

They cut the hair on her legs and skirt super-duper short. I hate it when they clip the hair on her paws so short that you can see her toes. Oh well, it is just hair and will grow back.

I am concerned because Lola had been drooling when I picked her up and her beard was soaking wet. The guy asked if she does that a lot and I told him No, only when she is nervous. Which is true. I'm a little unhappy that she was anxious about something going on there, but I guess I'll give them another shot.

Oh no how awful. I think you should pick a new place. I mean if she is worried there then a new place couldn't hurt. Poor Lola...we have a great lady here too bad it is so far away. Chris loves our girl, and for him to love her that says something.

I think you should go somewhere else too...the look says it all.

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.  …
