Iphone Photo Dump...

I decided to post some photos I've taken on my iphone over the past few weeks.  I will include a title and a short explanation with each...



What Did Santa Bring for me?

 Here the dogs are excited on Christmas morning while unwrapping their stocking stuffers.  I actually think this is my Mom unwrapping Millie's stuff, but Lola was equally excited.  The only photos we have of Christmas 2011 are iphone photos because I left me dang camera here in McKinney!


Cozy on the Couch

I've told you that I was couch bound for several days post-Christmas-eve less than graceful fall, and that Lola loved every minute of it, but here is photographic proof.  By the way, I forgot to include "Midnight in Paris" in my list of movies that I watched.  I really liked it.


Pathetic Pre-lit

This is what is left of the pre-lit portion of my bedroom tree.  Several portions bit it this season.  Pathetic.

I love tea, but I love tea in a cute mug more!

Look at this cute mug I got at Anthropologie right before Christmas.  It was on sale and they were doing an additional 50% off all sale stuff, so I got it for less than $4!

Just work with me!

In my sale shopping, I came across this headband.  Jennifer had me buy it for Harper and I was using Lola to model it so that I could text Jennifer a photo.  She was clearly put out by the whole process.

Precious

This is Lola on my bed.  She was all snuggly with Ellie (1 of her 3 identical pink elephants).
It wasn't posed either.  She brought Ellie up there and snuggled up to her.


CNN!  I'm waiting for your call!

I wrote down my Iowa Caucus predictions yesterday afternoon and texted them to a friend.
All I've got to say for myself is that I'm waiting for CNN to call, and I'll gladly become one of their new political pundits.

I have an idea...

Those words strike fear in my friends.  They know that a project is usually coming.
I hit up the 75% off sale at Wally-world today for a Christmas project I've got planned for next year.

Dang it!  I hope I got enough ornaments for said project.  I'm contemplating another w-mart run...

Lola is so cute - I love that picture of her snuggling! And, I cannot imagine what you are going to do with all those ornaments. Wreaths, maybe? Or, maybe a whole tree made out of ornaments!? :)

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.  …
