Pressing NYE Issue

As we get ready to usher out 2009 and ring in 2010, there is a horribly pressing issue that we've got to address...

How are you going to say 2010? Is it two thousand ten or is it twenty ten? Apparently there is a HUGE debate going on and it is very important because whatever we choose, we're going to be stuck with it for the next 90 years.

The younger generations are leaning toward two thousand ten because they think the other option "sounds weird". You know, they don't recall that we didn't say one thousand nine hundred ninety-nine, but instead said it was nineteen ninety-nine. We switched to the two thousand back at the turn of the century, but do we want to stick with it? Once we start adding more years to it, doesn't it kind of become a mouthful?


Which will you be saying tomorrow? I am rooting for Twenty Ten. To be perfectly honest, I expect to be writing 2009 well into March on anything that needs a date anyway!

I was planning on saying two thousand ten. But, I can be persuaded to change my mind. I'll just go with the majority.

I was going with two thousand ten as well. However I think twenty-ten has a ring to it! I think twenty ninety sounds hard and I would hate for my great-grandchildren to be so burdened. But honestly I'll just go with the massess and I think I just started writing 2009 so I'm sure that 2010 will not be an issue for me until June.

I like twenty ten. Much easier.

Hiya, new reader here & just wanted to say Happy New Year :) I'm going with twenty-ten as the other option just sounds more long winded and strange on the tongue!

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.  …
