Low Key

Low Key.  That about sums up my weekend.  I was dead tired y'all.  I had a heck of week last week, so I was just trying to recover.  I was running all over doing "law stuff", plus Summer school started, so I was tired from teaching 4 nights last week.  Luckily, I think that this week is going to be better. 

Lola and I just hung out.  I intended to go to Hobby Lobby on Saturday to get some stuff to make a door wreath for the 4th.  I took a shower, fixed my hair, put on make-up, got dresses, grabbed my purse, walked out into the garage to get into the car, and just decided I didn't have it in me. 

Lola was pleased with my decision.  Lots of petting for her...



On Saturday, I watched some recordings in my DVR and some movies.  I finally watched "Iron Lady".  I was hungry for a BLTA (BLT with Avocado).  I fried up some bacon and made a glorious BLTA (though I realized after the fact that I forgot the lettuce!).

I'm not a big fan of bacon, so this was a weird craving for me, and I have to admit it was the first time I have ever in my 35 years fried bacon.  Not that it was hard or anything, I've just never done it.  I fried it on my grill burner so that I didn't have the mess/smell inside.

I got inspired by Pinterest and made some poptails... cocktail in the form of a popsicle. 

They looked so pretty...

Tasted like BLEH!  Pinterest fail!  At least I didn't actually buy anything to make them, since I had all ingredients on hand (and in some cases about to outlive their refrigerator shelf life).

On Sunday, I tried to read the paper, but my friend doesn't like the diverted attention, so she manages to work her way into the situation...

I watched several marathons on television... Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta, Say Yes to the Dress (Bridesmaids Atlanta), and Whale Wars.  It was quite the weekend.  Actually, I think it was just what I needed.  Hope you had a good one too!

Oh my gosh - that BLTA looks so, so good. I haven't ever thought to put avocado on a BLT, but it could only be more delicious. Can't wait to see your 4th of July wreath!

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.  …
