Inspirational words...

This is a girl only post. Not that any guys are reading, but if any are, I can assure you that your interest in this is about to go to negative 50...


Last time I bought tampons, they had changed the box.  This tells me that a man is surely running the marketing scheme, because every female knows that it is totally un-cool for the box to change.  We know just how irritating it is when you are used to seeing the box look one way, but now it looks another way, so you are forced to stand in the dang "personal care" aisle for 5 minutes trying to figure out just which box it is that you now need.  So after my 5 minutes of looking, I got what I thought I needed, but it turns out I bought the "sporty" ones instead of the regular ones.

I don't think that the sporty ones have any difference other than packaging.  I kind of like the packaging better, because they don't come undone in your purse and they aren't so loud.  But the funniest thing is that they have inspirational messages on the individual packages.  I am so not even kidding about this.  Here are some of the nuggets of tampon wisdom:

"Live out your dreams!"
"All you can do is your best"
"Stop stressing...start focusing"
"Stay flexible"
"Give it your best shot"
"You've got the moves"
"Go for it!"
"Win or lose, play fair"

So, in a sense, they are kind of like fortune cookies.  But then I had an idea.  Here's the background for the idea...  Have you seen the Ryan Gosling, "Hey Girl" things?  Here are some examples...



I couldn't locate one of my favorites, which was "Hey girl.  I'm really sorry only 12 people entered your blog giveaway".  Ha! 

Anyway, back to my idea.  These tampon companies should follow this line of thinking and instead of telling me to "follow my dreams" and "play fair", they should have cute boys & "hey girl's" on the packages...

Some that came to me off the top of my head...

"Hey girl, let me get you some ibuprofen"
"Hey girl.  Bloated?  No, you definitely never looked more beautiful"
"Hey girl, do you want me to get you some chocolate"

Much better than the sporty inspirations, right?

Box changes do suck for sure! I kind of like the sporty ones, but they tend to cost more around here!

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.  …
