Childrens Home, Dogs and Shopping

I got up at the crack o' dawn again this morning (I recognize that people wake up at this time all over the place, but not me. Or Lola.) I had to be in Waco at 10:00 for one of my juvenile's interview. I was trying to get him in the Waco Methodist Home. I hadn't been there personally, so while I was there I took a tour.

It is soooo darn nice! It's a really beautiful campus. It looks like a smaller private college or I think if I had photos and told you it was some fancy pants boarding school, you'd totally believe me. I haven't heard whether my client got in yet, but I'm sure hoping so. He is a smart kid and isn't really bad. He just doesn't have anyone capable or willing to actually parent him. Sad situation, but I hope this will save him before he goes off the deep end and can't be saved. Plus I've got no idea what to do with him if they don't take him!

As far as not finding a home... it seems that our "new neighbor" I blogged about a couple of days ago has left. I knew I didn't seem him peeking through the picket hole all day yesterday. Today when I got home I looked and sure enough he was no where to be found. If my friend Jenn didn't live in NC, I would have sworn that she came and stole him, but I'm pretty sure she didn't make the drive here and back!

Tonight when I move Lola's kennel back into the living room, she will officially be the happiest puppy on earth!

Finally, if you didn't sign up for Rue La La when I posted about it way back when, then now is a good time. You can get some great Christmas finds on there. Today a Vera Bradley boutique started and I bought a Christmas present for more than half off. If you need a baby gift, their baby bags are marked down super cheap too. I think tomorrow, they start a Philosophy boutique, so if you are on my Christmas list, don't be surprised to see a gift from there show up under the tree with your name on it! Here is the invite again, in case you are more interested now that the shopping season is upon us

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.  …
