For Sale

White Dog for Sale....

This afternoon, I had a killer Sinus headache.  You know, the kind where it feels like an elephant is sitting on your face.  So I decided to try and take a nap. 

Normally, me wanting to take a nap is a great fit with Lola's schedule seeing as she naps about 19 hours of the day.  But when I really, really need to get a nap in, Lola conspires with the universe to thwart that activity. 

Today, she kept growling.  Then she kept jumping off the bed and was at the front door pitching an absolute fit about something.  What did I do?  I put in ear plugs and hoped that if someone was breaking in that they would do so quietly and leave my bed and warm down duvet even if they stole everything else that I owned.

Lola didn't stop there.  No she located a pony-tail holder (aka: her favorite toy on earth) and came back to my bed and played with it (which is akin to a child playing trampoline on the bed).  I took that away from her and told her to get lost.  Then a few minutes later I had a wet nose nosing me in the face.  When that didn't work, I had a paw in the face. 

So I'm listing a white dog for sale.  She a perfect companion as long as you never really NEED a nap!

Just kidding.  I wouldn't trade her for anything, but I have gotten my revenge by keeping her outside in the 28 degree weather while I typed this post.  That'll show her!  Well that and I will probably make loud noises every time she tries to nap for the next day or two.  It's only fair afterall...

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.  …
