Game Day!

College Football is back!  Can I get a "woo-hoo!"?  We're not televised this week, but I'm enjoying watching the other games.  How about those Baylor Bears?  Dang!

I did several things to get prepared for this exciting weekend...

First, a trip to Central Market yesterday afternoon to buy lots of yumminess to make it through all the games on this holiday weekend.

Second, making a Red Raider Wreath for my door...

I got this inspiration from Pinterest...


I went to Canton on Thursday and bought some of the "ingredients" to make my own version.

I bought a roll of this metallic deco fabric, or as I like to call it "that damn fabric"...
I really do hate working with this stuff, but I think it looks nice.

As you can see I bought this odd kind of wreath there too.  It's made for using on this type of project.  I decided on a silver wreath to add a little pizazz, or as Lisa pointed out in the store, "When you are going gaudy, you might as well just go really gaudy!".
I had lots of help as you can see...
Then she just gave up any pretense of even helping and moved to the couch...

The "finished" product.  I really do intend to add some other stuff to it.  I just don't know what I want yet.  I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and found a couple of possibilities, but I need to keep looking a bit more before I'm willing to commit.  So for now, this is the finished product...

Ready for game day...


Go Red Raiders!  Wreck 'Em!

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.  …
