Hump Day List

Here's my Hump-day list:

(1) I have seen the oddest tattoos today. Both were on my clients. One younger "lady" has tattoos on the side of her neck. One says "Miss Thang". Seriously, this is what you want on your neck for life? When relaying this story to Jennifer she says, "Is that what you want on your neck when you are at your grandson's medical school graduation someday?". To which I reply, Are you smoking crack? The appropriate question seems to be, Is that what you want on your neck when you are sitting at your grandson's parole hearing someday! Another client, age 16, had a tattoo on his arm. I couldn't make out most of it, but it had one of our local area codes in it.. "(972)". Again, really?

(2) It appears my new fairy godmother is on her way to me. I never received the "your phone has shipped e-mail", though I did receive a "how do you like your new phone e-mail" several days ago. I finally called and it said it shipped and gave me a tracking number. I tried to track it on FedEx, but they were having tracking problems. I'm just guessing here, but probably all the people that shut-down AT&T's system the other day during pre-order, have caused FedEx problems now!

(3) Yesterday was 5 weeks since my hand surgery. I can take my splint off around the house, but still have to be careful because the tendons could still pop if I do the wrong thing. I can now use both hands to type, though it certainly isn't back to normal, but I'm trying to adjust to it.

(4) I read an article about people having cosmetic surgery to get dimples. It sounds awful and like it could go bad. So I pondered the question of why people have dimples. Considering the fact that I've had two rather large dimples my whole life, you think that this question would have come to me sooner. So I googled it and it turns out that it's a birth defect that is genetic. Something about the muscles in your face not being a normal length. Who knew!

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.  …
