Black cloud...from bad to good?

I'm no fun this week.  I recognize it.  I also recognize that based on comments (or lack thereof :-) ), that nobody wants to listen to me gripe about a bad day, or in my case, a bad week.  But folks, that's all I've got this week, so hang in there with me and maybe things will change!

So you heard how my Wednesday went.  How was Thursday and Friday?  Let me tell you...

Thursday, as I mentioned I went to lunch with my grandparents.  My grandmother has been sick and called her doctor that morning to report her medicine was making her sicker.  He insisted that she come in, so she asked me to take her after lunch.  We left my granddad at home with Lola and headed down to Baylor Hospital.  All things went pretty smoothly until we were leaving Dallas.   I got pulled over and until the cop approached, I had no idea why.  Turns out the access road at that spot in Dallas has a 30 mph speed limit!  30 mph!?!  I was going 43 mph.  The speed limit on McKinney's access roads are 45-55, so I had no idea I was speeding!  Yea, he was a real jerk and gave me a ticket.

Then this morning, I pulled out of my garage to go to court only to discover that my house had been vandalized over night.  I had to run home between court appearances to try and clean up the mess of toilet paper, corn and carrots, chocolate syrup and eggs.  I had to change clothes quickly and try to clean it all up.  I was able to use a scrub brush and get most of the chocolate up, but those eggs are a pain in the you know what.  I have no idea who or why I was vandalized...only possibility I've come up with is some kids that I kicked out of my drive way the other day because they were riding wiggle cars down it and were making Lola crazy and in turn making it impossible for me to speak on the phone with the internet support guy.  Also, I didn't want to start a precedent of kids playing in my driveway and risk running over one someday.

I'm praying that's it.  That's the end of my crappy luck.  Right now it's raining and I hope that it is washing all my bad mojo away.  The rain is much needed and appreciated.  It is really coming down and storming out there...now I just pray the lightning doesn't strike the house!

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.  …
