What the Heck?

Today has been full of "What the Heck?" moments for me. I'll list them out for you...

  • I got an e-mail from the head of government at one of the campuses for the College that I teach at. He wants me to send him a copy of my syllabi and writing assignments because he has decided they are good and he wants to copy them. What the heck? I mean he is a real teacher, why is he copying off of me?

  • I got to class tonight and there was a Whataburger sack on my podium. After quizzing my class this student in the back said it was mine. Apparently the last time this student was having his full on Whataburger meal during class and causing a disruption, I commented that he should bring enough for the whole class the next time (read into that comment...maybe you shouldn't bring a whole meal to class!). Anyway, he brought me a burger. What the heck? What am I suppose to do? Eat it up at the podium? Uh, no. I can't walk over and trash it because then I'm a super bitch. I had to wait until break and the student was nowhere in sight so that I could go trash it out in the hall so that it would stop stinking up my classroom! Luckily, said student went out and smoked in his car during the break, so when he came back, he managed to stink up the class with the cigarette smell and cover the Whataburger smell!

  • I went to the 'Neath the Wreath holiday market and made it through the market in 30 minutes or less and didn't purchase one thing. What the Heck? Has the market gone to crap or was I off my shopping mojo today? I'm blaming it on the fact that most everything is stuff that I see at Canton (for cheaper).

  • I went to Target to replenish my supply of Mucinex D (no, I'm still not "well"). I discovered that there is a new super-duper Mucinex D that is double the strength of both drugs. What the heck? Why didn't I discover this last week? Why didn't Walgreens have it when I was there doing my first round of replenishing the Mucinex?

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.  …
