Weekend wrap up

Last night was a big game, Tech vs. Number 2 Texas.... at Texas...

I wasn't sure what was going to happen. I mean here we are just two games into the season and we have such a huge game before us. We have a new quarterback who is just settling in. We had to travel to Austin where 100,000+ fans would be rooting for us to lose. The Longhorns have been wanting revenge since last year when we beat them in Lubbock when they were Number 1 in the country. As I said, I didn't know what to expect, but I knew that all of this could be a recipe for disaster!

I'm very happy to report that it wasn't a disaster! We lost, yes, but only by 10 points. We kept trailing by 7 points the whole game, but then they scored another 3 right at the end. Also, that 7 points we were trailing wasn't "really a touchdown" but a punt ran back for 7. Yes, it is a touchdown on the scoreboard, but you know what I mean, it was kind of a fluke deal. Anyway, I'm very proud of my team because if they can go into hostile territory and play that well against the Number 2 team in the country, then I think we have a great season ahead (I hope).

Oh! I almost forgot... I got this really cute yard flag at Sample House this week and it was 20% off!



Other than watching the game, I have been trying to get this mess of a house back in order this weekend. It was again looking like it had been vandalized! At this point it is pretty straight, now I just need to do some cleaning today. More specifically, Lola has decided to take advantage of allergy season and steal kleenex from the trash cans and then shred them all over the house. It looks like a snow storm has descended on my house, so much vacuuming is needed! I did complete 7 loads of laundry yesterday, so I'm glad that chore is behind me.

This week is T.V. Premier week. Some have already premiered. Two weeks ago we got new "90210" and the new series "Melrose Place". Then last week we finally got a new "Gossip Girl" and "The Office"!!! Aaahhhh...oh how I love Gossip Girl! Tonight are the prime time Emmy's and then this week is the biggie premier week, so under my List of the week, I'm going to highlight the premiers I'm excited about. The plan is to change it every day, so don't forget to check it out starting tomorrow.

I was so worried about the game- I seriously thought we might loose by 40. It almost felt like a win I was so happy.

Love the flag. Very cute.

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...

Real dress on Left~ Back-up on the Right Here are the sketches of the back-up dress

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.  …
