The Musical (*updated*)

Apparently you should not blog in a hurry! I was in a hurry to post this earlier because I had to go meet with a White Collar/Organized Crime District Attorney about a case. It seems that in my hurry, I have left out details that my blog readers wanted to know! I've updated throughout the post (in italics).
*************************************************************************
Last night, Lisa and I began our evening out at R+D Kitchen. It was pretty good (not as good as the other times I visited), but the big noteworthy thing about dinner was that Lisa commented that the side dish that I ordered was much better than the one she ordered. If you are new to the blog or don't remember my prior stories about my friend Lisa, she never shares bites of her food at restaurants because she says she knows she has ordered the best thing on the menu and doesn't want to share it with others (or eat our sub-par food choices). You can see how this admission from my friend almost caused me to faint and miss the next event of the evening!

Please note Lisa's side dish with nary a nibble missing from it and my side dish that we have cleaned completely! Lisa's was Hot Potato Salad and my side dish was french fries (real exotic right!). They're like shoe string fries which I love and they are flavored really good.
This is where we were off to next:

These funny girls were sitting two rows behind us. They were all dressed up like the main character, Elle Woods. They were too funny, so I had to take a photo of them. About two seconds later, I was told that if I didn't put my camera up, it would be taken away and stored. I pointed out that it was 35 minutes before the show started and I wasn't even facing the stage, but that didn't matter. I stopped short of pointing out that at least 95% of the people there probably had camera phones.
These girls let out the most blood curdling scream just seconds before the show began. It almost caused my 32 year old heart to give out, so I have pity on the older folks in the theatre! These screams continued at various points throughout the show. I was glad we were near them because I think they had the most fun of anyone there!

I really enjoyed the musical. It was fun. I LOVED the darn dogs. They had a real "Bruiser Woods" and a real "Rufus" (Paulette's bulldog). Those pups are even listed in the playbill cast of characters. "Bruiser" is played by a Chihuahua named Frankie, and "Rufus" is played by a bulldog named Nellie. The funniest part is that they have understudies! My favorite part was in the courtroom when Elle has discovered that the pool boy is really gay. That scenario produces a song they call "There! Right There!" which is really just "Is He Gay or European?". Hilarious!

So thankful that you updated. I just read an article about white collar criminals hiring the "jail" coaches. Martha Stewarts coach is Madoff's free coach so you could see if he will take on your client...if he's innocent that disregard all of the above. Do you like that I determined that he is a he!
musicals are lots of fun...it sounds like you had lots of fun at this one :o)

(curious though about what were the three "letting out blood curdling screams" for?)

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.  …
