Lazy Sunday

I know that so many of you have busy busy weekends. I haven't had a super busy weekend, but it has gotten to the point that if I have to leave my house on the weekends, then its just too much. I realize that I'm just too darn lazy, but honestly, since I started teaching three classes, I've been this way.

Yesterday I sadly did have to leave my house. I had to go to my cousin's twin boys 2nd birthday party. All I'm going to say is that Zack and Max were much happier at their 1st birthday than they were their 2nd. That being the case, Mom and I bailed out of there as soon as possible! Mom was meeting Dad in their Rock Start Tour Bus later in the afternoon for an overnight stay about 40 miles away from the party location, so we did a little shopping.

We went to Hobby Lobby and TJ Maxx. I've been thinking to myself lately that since my Mom is now semi-retired, I should take her on a trip to Canton Trade Days. Then I went with her to Hobby Lobby and remember why that is the craziest idea I've ever had in my entire life! Shopping with my Mom is better done in very contained areas without too many choices. My Mom and choices are not friends. Never will be.

Then after I made it home around supper time, and finished watching the Kennedy funeral events (both DVR'd and live), I watched some of my Netflixed "90210" DVD. I needed to catch up before the new season starts next week and was down to the final 4 episodes. I finished it today and then watched an episode of "One Tree Hill". I somehow missed out on OTH when it started back in 2003, and am just now getting addicted. I don't know why I love all these teenage dramas, but I do! I'm not even going to be ashamed about it... I'm confessing it to you all! Yes, I LOVE LOVE LOVE "Gossip Girl" too!

Besides giving Lola a bath, that's about it for today. As I think about the fact that the weekend is almost over, I could literally cry. The only thing keeping me from it is that next weekend is a LONG weekend. I can't wait!

Being a mom of a four year old, I wish I could chill in front of the tube, too. Sooo jealous, but in a good way.

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.  …
