Babies

I don't like babies. There. I said it. Well, let me revise this comment. I don't like babies until they are about 6 months old...then, hand 'em over to me, 'cause I think they are awfully cute at this point.

My close friends know my opinion about babies. Many of my friends' babies, I haven't held until they hit the 6 month mark, because they didn't force them on me. The thing that often keeps me away from visiting people at the hospital when they have babies is that they force the baby holding onto you. I'm never sure how to say, Look, I don't want to hold your breakable looking baby. Sorry, I just don't.

I also don't think fresh babies are very cute. My friend Lisa has a checklist she must perform before forwarding any baby photo e-mails to me. Is the baby cleaned up (no afterbirth nonsense)? Is the baby cute (if it ain't cute, don't forward)? These came about because, as you can guess, she sent me an unclean batch of photos, which caused me to lay down the law and then she sent me a photo of a very uncute baby, which led to the second step in the checklist.

All that being said, I think this is about the cutest thing I've ever seen... Seriously, it melts my heart! Maybe I need to rethink my out and out ban on babies.

That baby isn't fresh out of the womb, thus the reason you like it! I also generally don't want to hold people's babies. I still feel this way even after having a baby. (I did like holding my own babies) Four months is my cross over point, they are cute with personality and can't really move!

Well that baby seems to meet the "rules" clean and cute. Also most likely 6 mos old.

You are not alone I don't like to hold babies younger than 6 months either. They are to fragile looking.

I haven't held a tiny one for quite awhile. It is a great experience if you are close to the mom or dad.

The problem is that all parents think their newborns are cute whether they are or not. Therefore, due to this bias you are likely to continue receiving photos of "uncute" babies. My Mom's friend Myrna's codewords for a not so cute baby is "That's Some Baby !!"
Just found you on the Texas Blogging Gals list. Cute baby picture and cute blog. I am looking forward to following your blog!

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...

Real dress on Left~ Back-up on the Right Here are the sketches of the back-up dress

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.  …
