Catching Up...

Well, it has been a while since I posted an update on the life and times of Lola & Kara. We've been pretty busy not being busy, if that makes any sense!

Last Tuesday evening, Lola got to do pretty much as she pleased. You see Wednesday was her birthday and I have to teach on Wednesday nights, so she got to do whatever she wanted.

This included watching the Dog Show...

Then she got to lay on my bed while we finished watching the dog show. She loves to lay on my bed at night while I watch T.V. or read.

In fact, I said, "Do you want to go watch tv on my bed?" She jumped off the couch, ran to my bedroom door, hit the door and then howled because I wasn't coming fast enough!

Wednesday was her birthday. We celebrate with presents! (Since she is on the strictest of diets, no treats are allowed...just didn't want you to think I was a bad Mom!)

The rest of the week was uneventful. By Saturday, I had decided that Lola had a skin irritation and a secondary infection. So I called our favorite vet and left him a message with that info and the number to our local Walgreens. The message taker at the vet acted like I was crazy, but a few minutes later I got a call that the script was being called in. Luckily (or unluckily) we've been down this road so much, that I know how to diagnose the problem and Joe, our doc, trusts my diagnosis.

Lo is on antibiotics and her horrible immunosuppresant. This medicine is horrible because (1) it makes her tummy unhappy, (2) it makes her totally Stoned and (3) makes her so clingy.

Basically, we spent the weekend on the couch watching Gilmore Girls with Lola in my pocket.

Here is a pic of poor droopy Lola for the 30 seconds she wasn't on top of me this weekend.

I think I've timed it and though this medicine is hard to find the good time to give it (2 hours after food, 1 hour before food, 30 minutes after her anti-nausea medicine), I'm going to do it late at night so that she is droopy during the night. Fingers crossed that this will work better!

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.  …
