News from O

Good grief y'all! I'm currently getting my 5:00 news from none other than Oprah Winfrey!



In case you haven't heard, Oprah is in town visiting the State Fair. She was scheduled to tape a show this morning at Fair Park, but she made a surprise visit yesterday. Y'all, this is just burning me up because I considered going to the fair yesterday, but didn't know who I could get to go with me. I could have gone and met Oprah and Gayle!

She taped her show this morning, but of course I had class at 7 and could not go for that. Then I saw some footage from the taping and wouldn't you know it, she had Nate Berkus there! Nate!!! I could have asked Nate what color to paint my bedroom!

Now, Oprah is co-anchoring our evening news. I mean she really IS co-anchoring...discussing the rain, throwing it to reporters, the whole shebang! It's odd, but I'm loving it!

This whole thing sucks because I spent a good portion of my day having to do a sexual harassment interview instead of stalking Oprah, Gayle and Nate! (I'm doing the investigating for a corporation, I'm not the accused or the accuser in case you were wondering)

I grew up in the midwest about 6 hours from chicago and in 96 I went on vacation there with two girlfriends. We went and saw a taping of the oprah winfrey show. We totally lucked out as it was the show promoting The first wives club so we got to screen the movie then she provided lunch (it was during a healthy phase so we had some kind of sprout sandwish (trust me we ate mostly the cookies that were provided)) and then did a show with Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, and Bette Midler!! It was amazing. I still can't beleive I was in the same room as all those women!! And the movie was awesome. I now wish SJP was there but of course she was still not that famous but I would love to say I met her too!! So if we were real friends instead of my just a lurker on your blog I totally would have helped you stalk her!! :D oh and I feel your sad Nate pain he is a hottie so we would have doubly stalked him lol!!

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.  …
