She's Here!

What a day! First of all, I started out the day super excited because last night I had sent a Direct Tweet to Cory Booker commenting on a speech he had given. In case you aren't Twitter savvy, a Direct Tweet is a private tweet that goes to a person's e-mail instead of out to the twitterverse for all to see. You can only send Direct Tweets to people who follow you, which is the joy of having someone as a follower. Anyway, he Direct Tweeted me back, which makes me super happy. It's like we are friends. At least in my mind.

Then about 10:00 I was drying my hair and heard Lola causing such a commotion. I knew that either my new fairy godmother was here or there was a squirrel in the back yard. I rushed into the living room and found Lola at the front door (a good sign!) and sure enough, there was a package on my porch. I couldn't get Lola to move over she was so excited. It was like she thought the darn phone was for her!

Here is the box that was within the box...

I carefully took the lid off and heard angels sing... AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!


I had to get my receipt out from the pre-order process because it contained the directions for activating the new FGM. I have to show you the ridiculousness that is this receipt. I had to tape it to the wall so that you could see it all...
I've got her all up and running and am so excited. I'm only a little bummed because I just realized that to do "Face Time" chats, you both have to be on a wireless connection (at least for now, that may change to 3g sometime).
I've listed my old FGM on Craigslist, so hopefully she will sell and pay for the new one! I did have to show you this next pic because it shows what a great FGM she has been...
Yep. I talked on her for 22 days and 7 hours. When I wonder why I have cancer in a few years, you can remind me why.

And finally, to round out this great day.... It is only 92 degrees right now and it is RAINING! At least I think that is what is falling from the sky. It's been so long, I can hardly remember! So far, it hasn't rained as much as it needs to, but maybe it will keep it up.

I <3 my iPhone4. If you jailbreak it and your fellow Face Chat has also done a jailbreak then you can do it without internet over your 3G regular network with no extra billing charges. :)

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.  …
