Ryan Star & Texas Tech Football

Here is a primarily pictorial review of my weekend...

Ryan Star concert on Friday

I know I inundated you with photos of Ryan Star after the August concert, but here are a couple of more.

Right before taking the stage...
Ryan commenting on our World Series status (which was 0 wins at that point)
This one is because people always comment that he looks mean or serious.  He does when he is singing, but he is really the nicest guy, so I had to show that he does smile.
and this one, because I kind of thought it was a cool pic...


and that's all for Ryan Star pictures.  I've been asked if I am known by him as his super fan.  No, I am nowhere near the super fan status.  I think those who have gone with me can testify that while I'm a fan, my behavior in no way makes me memorable as a super fan.  Now others, I think personally, Ryan may need a restraining order against. 

Ryan and I did get to chat more this time and that was fun!

College Station for the game on Saturday

Now for the second half of play
aka: where things went very bad for the Red Raiders
"3 & out" is officially burned into my brain because I heard it so much in the 3rd Quarter!

But finally!  In the 4th, our brilliant (read sarcastically) coach FINALLY put in our back-up (read: should be starting) quarterback and we scored a few times.  Of course our coach waited until we were too far down to catch up to make the change in QB, but at least we scored a few more times.  Here is "Sticks" (#1)  in action...

Us leaving the game (2 sad, 1 happy)

Looks like so much fun- except for all the losing. I was quite disappointed. Glad you had fun with your friends.

Such a fun weekend. It would have been much better with a win, but we don't do that anymore.

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.  …
