Poor Lola

Poor Lola.  I got home from my 8 hour class on Saturday and noticed that Lola seemed to have an ear infection.  First the eye, now the ear!

I had to teach for another 5 hours on Sunday, but once I was done, we headed out of town.  It was time to go see our real vet, you know the one that is a 300 mile round trip!  We made a pit stop in Nocona for the night, so that we could get up early and head to Wichita Falls. 

Lola's the best little traveler.  She just sits and gazes out the window.
 
 
Anyway, wouldn't you know it...Lola has like the worst ear infection in the history of the planet.  One that is multiple strains of bacteria that are likely highly resistant to drugs.  That is coupled with the problem that she has a limitation on what kind of medicine she can take due to her bad pancreas, has the vet quite concerned (me too as you can imagine).  We have a heavy duty antibiotic to take for 21 days and I have to give her an ear wash twice a day.  In three weeks we have to go back to see if it's gone.  If it isn't we will have to send a culture out to have it tested and figure out exactly which strain of bacteria she has so that we know exactly what kind of drug to use to treat it. 
 
Joe, our vet, thought that the severity of this infection is partly due to the trauma from last Wednesday.  The good part of having to go visit the vet, is that he was able to give her eye a check too.  He was really concerned about pressure in her eye (which ER never mentioned).  All looked good though!
 
So my poor Lola needs prayers that her infection clears up.  Poor baby.

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.  …
