Grandparents Day and Questions...

Today is grandparent's day.  I had hoped to do a cute post with photos of me and my grandparents and Lola and her grands but I can't locate any of the photos I know I have somewhere, so I'm done trying.  Happy Grandparents Day!

Samantha over at the Ruby Turtle Hippie Times blog got and then gave a blog award/questionnaire thingy and tagged me last weekend, so I'm answering the questions and will be passing along a questionnaire of my own.  Here it goes...

1. What is your favorite football team?  Texas Tech Red Raiders

2. When you grow up, you want to be...? A lawyer.  I mean seriously, what second grader wants to be a lawyer?  Sadly, I did.  I recently found a booklet I did for our open house way back then.  It was what's your favorite food, what do you want to be when you grow up, etc.  I had lawyer on there.  I knew it was weird, so I added stuff like movie star, etc., but I really wanted to be a lawyer.  Now I want to be a lottery winner when I grow up. 

3. What is your favorite tv series?  This is SO hard because  I'm a t.v. junkie!  Right now I love Modern Family, Gossip Girl (don't judge), Castle, NCIS...  I don't know if there is a show right now that I love as much as some of my past favs like Gilmore Girls, The West Wing, Sex and the City, Alias and The Sopranos.  There are several new ones I'm greatly anticipating.  Thank God for DVR's.

4. Do you like cats or dogs? Dogs!!!

5. What is your favorite time of the year?  Really any of the year when temperatures are below 80!  So that's like late Fall, Winter and early Spring around here.  If I lived somewhere with "normal" seasons, it would probably be Fall.

6. Coke or Pepsi?  Coke.  Actually I drink Coke Zero in the morning and then Diet Dr. Pepper in the afternoon.  Never Pepsi!

7. Mayo or Mustard? Mayo

8. Jackie Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn?  Jackie

Okay, so because I think you are all fabulous...


Tag, you're it!

Answer the following questions:

1. Favorite Color
2. Where would you go on a dream vacation (if money or time wasn't an issue)?
3. Favorite Celebrity couple
4. If you could have dinner with any female (alive or dead) who would it be?
5. What point in history (other than now) would you choose to live in?
6. What is your favorite season.
7. What is your favorite tv show?
8. What is your favorite food?

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 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.  …
