Back in Business

I'm back in business, but too busy/tired to post a real blog post right now.  I do have stuff to blog about, so stay tuned! 

I'm so happy to have internet again, I can hardly stand it.  It required a trip to Plano to exchange out my modem with Time Warner Cable.  I think we are fully back up and running, but it was questionable for a while and I had to get on the phone with those darn TWC technicians again.  They are sending someone tomorrow to check something.  Who knows. I'm so computer illiterate.  At one point in my conversation with TWC I asked "how come it isn't working now and it was 3 minutes ago!" to which Mr. Technical Guy started to reply with "I told you a minute ago..." when I promptly cut him off and said "LOOK!  I DON'T SPEAK GEEK!  YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE SPEAKING TO ME IN CHINESE AS TO TELL ME TECHNICAL TERMS ABOUT THIS COMPUTER STUFF!"

It's been a frustrating day.  I think I'm so tired from that nonsense plus my body is still recalling that 9 years ago on the Thursday of this week in July 2001, I was finishing the 3 day/2 month BAR exam.  Every year at this point, it has sympathy pains for my 24 year old self! 

In case I don't get to blog again today, I want to alert you to the Dillards sale... 40% off of all already permanently reduced merchandise!  I got a few great gifts and a couple of somethings for myself!

I've been out of sorts all week thinking about it. I absolutely still hate the bar exam as much now as I did years ago!! ICK!

My 25 year old self...was about to get kicked out of a resteraunt because members of my group had drank so much that it was painfully obvious we were over served. Other members of our group would eventually get divorced and one of them would then marry the waitress who painfully overserved us that night! Silly girl we told her not to go to law school. I think we may have told her that in eight different languages!

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.  …
