I've Got Nothin'

I feel that I should blog about something, but really, I've got nothin'!  I had a very uneventful weekend cleaning out the backlog in my DVR from premier week.  I also had Milly until last night, and of course Lola who was sick.  Lola was a mommy's girl the whole weekend which means she was attached to me and wanted me to rub her head or back the entire time. 

Tomorrow is suppose to finally be THE DAY that I go back to Canton to pick up my dresser that I bought last month.  It has literally rained every single day that I was available to go and get it since I bought it.  I've been so worried about getting ripped off (since I had to pay for the dresser already), that it will be good to have it here in my garage.  I need to re-list my bedroom set on Craigslist for what I believe to be a more realistic price instead of one similar to what other sets are listed for.  I think I have finally selected the headboard that I want to order and a fabric. 

This is the headboard I have selected at Ballard Designs.  I initially wanted a smooth one (not tufted), but then I started thinking that since it is fabric and all, maybe tufted would be better so that if there ended up being a dirty spot at some point, then it probably wouldn't show as much.  I also planned on getting white, BUT perhaps common sense has won out and I thought better of white.  I ordered some fabric swatches and this one is called Latte Velvet and I think it is the winner.


In other news, while Traci and Courtney are blogging about dieting and working out, my Mom brought me some of my favorite candy from New Orleans!  This is from Evan's Candy, located right on Decatur Street between Cafe Du Monde and the French Market.  It is called Creole Hash and is made of homemade marshmallows, milk chocolate and pecans.  YUMMY! (sorry for the crappy iphone photo, I was being lazy).

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.  …
