Cause of the Week

I'm not wholly changing my Cause of Week, but I'm adding to it really.

This week, I'm combining a cause and one of my favorite artists. Ryan Star was on "Rock Star", one of those talent type TV competitions, a few years ago. Anyway, I've been crushing on him ever since! I love his music and in fact listen to him almost every single night while I'm in the bath and getting ready for bed.

His last single is "Breathe" and he took up the unemployment cause in his music video. Unemployment is of course tied to the Hunger issues that I have already highlighted. Check out Ryan's new video...

Oh My Gosh Y'all! I spend all stinking day today working on Christmas card issues...finding a card, working on the photo for the card, the newsletter, etc. The photo issue really dogged me for a while. I'm not doing one photo, but a collage of photos. It got to the point that I would send a photo up to Walgreens on the corner, and the nice lady there would call and let me know if it was right or not! I'm not kidding!

Anyway, that whole mess is mostly done and now I'm about to relax (oh Lord hopefully) and enjoy the Tech game (again, hopefully). Of course there is a fair chance that there will be nothing relaxing or enjoyable about it...that is about how our whole season has gone!

Hopefully tomorrow I can be more productive and get more done. If you guys could see my half assed bedroom remodel you would know that I should be whipped for sitting at the computer all day with my friends Photoshop and Printshop!

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.  …
