Getting Better

These guys have been my best friends since last Wednesday


I've been sick since then. It started with Allergies and progressed to Bronchitis. As many will point out, I haven't been to a doctor, so this is just my diagnosis. To that I say two things (1) One, I am a doctor. So what if it is in jurisprudence and not medicine. We lawyers are the only people who have a doctorate and don't get to be called "Dr". and (2) I have had both of these conditions so many times, I don't need a doctor to diagnose me.

If the congestion, ear ache, sore throat, lost voice, and coughing weren't enough signs to point toward being really sick, then the fact that I've had no appetite is. I am always hungry, but yesterday I only had lunch, and even then it wasn't because I was hungry, but was just figuring that I needed to eat something at some point in the day.

But I think I'm finally getting back on track. I would say getting back to the land of the living, but with the exception of this weekend, I have had to continue on going to court and class. My students are about on DVD overload right now since I haven't had a voice to lecture, but hopefully, I will be back to boring them to sleep in no time now.

Sorry you've been sick. I've had it too. My ear is killing me- if it would just open up I would feel better. I diagnose myself all the time; as you know, I'm a doctor too. But, this time I had to go to the MD. The JD doesn't get you very far at the pharmacy.

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.  …
