I still love Johnny Castle

I'm sad that Patrick Swazye has died. One of the first movies I remember seeing him in is "The Outsiders". We watched it in Mrs. Porter's 6th grade Gifted and Talented Reading class after we had finished reading the book. My favorite Patrick Swayze movie is of course Dirty Dancing. In junior high, though we were probably too young to be watching, we were all obsessed with Johnny Castle! I remember when my parents took me and a friend to Six Flags one summer, I bought the movie poster as my souvenir. I still cannot hardly flip past it if I find it on tv while channel surfing. I'm still waiting for my "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" moment in life...

It seems like I was just blogging about this darn movie, but I do still really like Point Break. Swayze was the bad guy bank robber in this movie... If you haven't seen it I may have just ruined it for you.
And of course Road House. Not great cinema, but a super buff Swayze cracks some heads, so what's not to like.

I know this could be controversial, but I'm not a huge "Ghost" fan. It kind of freaked me out a little.


What is your favorite Patrick Swayze movie?

This going to shock you (as if me weighing in on a movie issue isn't enough to shock you!) but I really liked Ghost and just never have cared much for dirty dancing. I think P.S. looked fabulous, don't get me wrong, but the show it's self didn't do much for me! '

I am really sad for he and his family!

I liked Ghost too. I watched a Barbara Walters special last night on ABC about Patrick and his wife. I was bawling when it was over. I'm so sad for his wife.

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.  …
