Good Sunday

The vet called this morning, but since I'm in the land of no AT&T cellphone signal, it went straight to voicemail. ARGHHHH! He said in the message that there weren't many changes and Lola had eaten a little bit this morning. He then went on to say that he would be back at the clinic at 5:00 if I wanted to visit. Have I mentioned that I love this guy? I was so excited that he offered me the opportunity to visit today!

I was of course there at 5:00 on the dot, just as he was walking in. Lola was so excited to see me! She was super spunky today...Almost just like the normal Lola! I took her on a little walk and she gave a little growl at the other dogs she saw. When we came back into the clinic, she jumped up on one of the techs there.

As far as eating goes, the vet tried her on dry food this morning. He said that she tried to eat a stray piece of popcorn that she found on the floor this morning, so that was an indication that she might have a bit of her appetite back. I was able to feed her several handfuls of food. The vet was very excited about how much she ate and how much energy she had, so he said no surgery for a feeding tube tomorrow. As long as she keeps this up, that won't be necessary.

She had to get a shot in the butt to keep her from being nauseous. She also had to have her IV redone because she had pulled it out at some point today, but the vet said she is a trooper and a tough little girl and never cries of whines when they are doing something to her.

I'm going to go back in the morning on a multi-function trip... Milly to the groomer and then to the vet clinic to try and feed Lola again.

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.  …
