Snow & Tweets

Today we took kind of a snow day.  The receptionists didn't come to the office until noon, so I just fielded some calls from home this afternoon.  It was nice.  Still lots of snow and ice around here, and I think it is adorable how Lola jumps through the snow like a bunny.  I caught a small bit of it on video today, so here it is (it's only like an 8 second video)...

In other news, I have watched The Bachelor the past two "seasons" for one reason only...Jennifer Weiner.  Who's she?  She is one of my favorite authors and she tweets her way through every single episode.  I love to follow her tweets of The Bachelor.  They are funny and snarky and make me laugh. 

Tonight I send JW a tweet and asked if she had noticed that one of the bacheloretts kept harping on the fact that she "quit my job for him" and that she said it like she was secretary of state, not a waitress like she really is.  She sent me a reply and said "@legallyblondekf I'm sure that bar she left had a terrible time finding someone else to wear a bikini and hand out shots. #bachelor".  I love that you can tweet "famous" people and they sometimes tweet you back!

So very cool that she tweeted you back!! I may have to look into twitter too. Not sure what I have to tweet about. I don't think anyone cares if I picking up kids' toys for the 100th time in one day. :)

Oh that is awesome that she replied to your tweet : ) I love her books too and now will be going to find her on Twitter! I wasn't going to watch this season bc I get tired of "all the walls that need broken down" but when I heard that Brad was going to be the bachelor I couldn't resist.

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.  …
