One of those days...

You know it is going to be one of those days when you've yelled at someone by 7 a.m. And I do mean yelled at someone. That "lucky" someone was a client. Who called me at 7 a.m. At my house. When I've never given her my house number. Seriously.

I was dead asleep and my phone rings. I look at caller ID and see that client dumbass is calling. I answer, nobody's there. I hang up the phone and of course she calls right back (this is what my clients do...call, don't get fast response, call right back...the concept of voicemail is lost on them). I answered the 2nd time, I yelled. She's an idiot who wanted to know what time to be in court today. Ummm, her court isn't until the 30th. The End.

On a happier note, Bath & Body Works came out with their summer vanillas yesterday and you know I think the lemon smells oh so yummy. In my lemon obsession, I've also been desiring a lemon perfume. I haven't found one that I adored, at least until yesterday. Bigelow has a fragrance that is Lemon and just what I wanted. They sell it at B&B Works. I returned those scent bugs that I got in my stocking at Christmas, because they really just weren't doing it for me and got myself some new perfume instead. Great trade!

I fell in love with the lemon verbena products at our hotel in Vegas. The other day at Walmart I found a new Dove bodywash that is Pomengrante and Lemon Verbena. It is heavenly!

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.  …
