Dear Lola,



Dear Lola,

I love you more than I can say. You are the BEST dog in the world. I'd do anything for you, but I think it's time for a little quid pro quo.

A little explanation: You bark viciously every time a UPS truck drives down the road or a kid walks down the sidewalk. You hear a squirrel pass gas from 3 houses away and go into high terror alert mode. You act like you want to tear every workman to shreds, and let's not even talk about your loathing of children.

But where are you when something really serious happens? Over the past 5 years, we've endured more than our fair share crap....

Exhibit 1: Some kids pulled my brick mailbox over in the middle of the night. A Neighbor said it sounded like a bomb going off. You didn't make a peep until the police were ringing our doorbell at 3 a.m.

Exhibit 2: Some kids vandalized my house with eggs, chocolate syrup, toilet paper, and cans of corn & carrots. Again, you didn't make a sound. I had to discover the mess when I backed out of the garage on the way to court the next morning.

Exhibit 3: This morning, I went out to water the flowers and discovered that someone had ran into my mailbox. There wasn't a ton of damage, but it was moved over and now sets kind of cockeyed. You failed to alert me to this as well.

All I'm asking is that you not only alert me to the UPS truck so arrogantly driving down "your street", but you also alert me to people who are destroying my property.

Love,

Your Mommy

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.  …
