Schnauzers and New Shoes

This little mongrel has come to visit until Sunday evening...
so it's Schnauzerville around here.


Right now both Milly and Lola are outside because they are both driving me nuts...


Lola is having an allergy attack on her tail and of course Joe, our vet is out of town this week!


Milly is having one of her brain short circuits where she doesn't think she likes Lola or me, so she hides out in the back room! Nut!


Aside from the excitement of one too many schnauzers at my house (I kid, I kid. We love Milly until bedtime), I got a new pair of shoes!


I actually ordered them on Friday because I couldn't find them in my giant size anywhere, and the UPS delivery guy dropped them on my doorstep today.
I think they are just so cute! The best part was this...
See the $79.99 price tag? Well I had located them at DSW for $55, but couldn't find them in my size as I mentioned. DSW also didn't have my size online. I popped by a store in Allen at the outlets and they had them but not in my size. The ordered them and shipped them for free. You know how much I paid for them? $23 + tax! They had them in brown patent (it looked a little bronze) and I'm thinking now I should have ordered those too for that price.


Sorry about the craptastic photos, I used the fairy god mother (iphone) because I was too lazy to plug in the camera and download...


Oh lord, got to go! A firetruck just drove by with sirens a blazin' and little chicken Milly is scratching on the door to get inside!

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.  …
