Random Thoughts

Here is just a bunch of randomness that is running through my mind today:

(1) I'd like a congressional inquiry on why a tetanus shot hurts so much worse than severing a finger that caused the need for a shot in the first place. Seriously! I couldn't even lift my arm yesterday. I was very happy that after a brief discussion at the ER, Jennifer, Lisa and I decided that it would be best to go ahead and get it in the hurt arm so that I would just still have one bum arm if it hurt afterward.

(2) Someone else has married Mike Tyson. Maybe not recently, but I was just glancing at an article and it mentioned he was photographed with his 3rd wife. Why the face? Who marries that guy?

(3) I had to complete sexual harassment training and discrimination training today. Luckily online. The stupid college told me I had until July, but just sent me an e-mail today saying that it had to be completed by the 28th of this month. Perfect! I did it, but sent them a get your crap together hate e-mail in response.

(4) Did anyone see Laura Bush on Larry King last night? She came out and said she was pro-choice and for gay marriage. Shock waves are probably crashing through the Republican party today. Love her!

(5) I'm certain that this only applies to me and about 0.000178% of the population, but I've been riveted by the political wranglings in the United Kingdom and 10 Downing Street. Such drama!

(6) I'm beginning to miss having feeling in my pinkie.

(7) I give my second final tonight and my last one tomorrow. Yea!

Emery says that she has sprinkles when she has a body party that "falls asleep". I think it sounds better. So I hope the sprinkles in your pinkie aren't bothering you. I want you to have feeling soon as well.

Glad school is almost over for a week or two!!
Matt had to get a tetanus shot the same day Kate was born because he punctured his arm on a rusty nail in the attic the night before. He tried to complain about the shot to me, but I wouldn't hear it. Now that I hear your tale, maybe I should have been a bit more sympathetic.

I know those shots hurt but better safe than sorry.

We have to do the sexual harrassment training as well at MSU. When you first start at the university, you have to sit and watch the 1960's video but after that the updates are online. Thank goodness.

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.  …
