Sick of the Drama...

Ok, so I don't really like complaining posts, but let me just say, I don't like change. Change and me, we are not friends. So you know I'm serious, let me say that I have had the exact same checking account since 6th grade. Anyway, I've had too much change in the hair dresser department over the past year. I. AM. SICK. OF. HAIR. DRAMA!

A little recap of my hair drama in case you haven't committed it to memory:

I had gone to the same lady for about 5 years. I liked the job she did, but she was a bit of a pain...partly because she had lots of clients, partly because she only worked like 2 or 3 days a week. Anyway, I had to book my appointments 16 weeks in advance to get them on a date and time that I wanted. She had moved to Sherman and I drove 35 minutes each way to continue getting my hair done. Last summer, when booking my trip to Mexico, I needed to come home on the day of my appointment that I had scheduled many, many weeks in advance. I called and explained my plight, that if I came home on the day of my appointment, I could save like $300 on my trip. She couldn't accommodate me and recommended I switch to another girl.

So I switched to another girl, initially for that one June appointment, but then I switched "for good". I loved the new girl and then 8 weeks ago, she announced that she was moving to the Houston area.

Have I mentioned that I don't like change? So I went back to the original girl. I had an appointment today and she announced that she is moving to South Texas. She didn't know if she was going to be here in 8 weeks when I would need another appointment. So I booked an appointment with the girl up front at the Salon. I picked her for the following reasons: (1) She seems really nice, (2) I recently found out that I have a case with her husband, who is an attorney and friends with my friend Abby, (3) she is suppose to have had the exact same training as my current girl and my old "new" girl, (4) she has been in that same spot since I started going to the salon in 2004, and (5) she OWNS the salon, so I'm praying for some stability.

I'm hoping that I can start going to Cathy, then she can do my hair for the rest of my life!

P.S. Today reminded me that nobody can fix my hair curly except for me, so if I die soon, please ensure that I am cremated or have a closed casket...thank you very much!

P.P.S. I got my hair majory thinned out today and I think it is possible I have lost 10 pounds! It's glorious!

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.  …
