On the Insta'

Are you on Instagram?  I am, but I have to be honest.  I've been on for a while, but I kinda only thought it was a fun way to filter photos.  I didn't even realize it was a form of social media until recently.  Now that I have figured it out, and know people on it (as well as some celebs that I follow), I love it! 

Here's what I've been posting on the Insta':

 
Sunday we watched some of the Super Bowl with breaks for Downton Abbey
and, of course,
The Puppy Bowl
(that is what Lola is watching in this pic)
 
Have you checked out May Designs?
They offer monogrammed notecards & also these may books.
The note books are so cute.
You can select what pattern you want,
what monogram or name (including design & color) you want,
and what kind of inside you want your book to have.
 
Mine is just the normal lined paper, but they offer all sorts of options.
I think the ones for wedding planning, meal planning, weight loss, and pregnancies are super cute too!
 
I have seen some people get these for each of their kids and write down funny things the kid says.
Love that idea!
 
I'm haven't decided what to use mine for, but it was pink and monogrammed and I couldn't resist!
 
(p.s. This isn't a paid advertisement, I just really love my may book!)
 
 
Lola had a grooming appointment this week.
 
She was so fuzzy wuzzy, it was NEEDED!
 
Turned into a two day fiasco though.
Here we were on day one of our fiasco
(this was about 25 minutes AFTER the groomer was suppose to be there)
yes, I ended up in the back seat with her for the wait
 
The second day of our attempt was pretty much a fiasco too,
but luckily, we ended up getting her groomed!
 
Today, after court and other work was mostly completed, I had to go to the grocery store.
 
I had no food.  I was out of drugs.  A bad combination!
 
I went to Trader Joe's first.
 
I love Trader Joe's.
 
I got these gorgeous Mandarin Oranges that still had stems & leaves!
 
I also couldn't pass up these beauties.
 
I love ranuculus!
 
They are my favorite flower (followed closely by hydrangeas).
I actually have them in my kitchen window, but I took them outside for the pic.
 
 
So, if you are on the Insta' look me up:  Legallyblondekf
 
Then I can follow you back!
 
Happy Weekend!

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.  …
