I hate change

I used to be a loyal viewer of NBC.  I watched Bryant and Katie and then Matt and Katie on the Today Show.  I watched Tom Brokaw on the Evening News.  And of course, I watched the wonderful Tim Russert on Meet the Press every Sunday morning.  I recall lots of fights that involved me watching Tim Russert and Mom yelling at me to get ready because I was going to be late for church... ah, days before DVR! 

Anyway, over the years Katie changed to Meridith, I developed an abnormal dislike for Ann Curry, Brian Williams didn't really do it for me at the evening news slot and tragically, Tim Russert passed away.  I slowly converted to a loyal ABC viewer.

I woke up with this crew from Good Morning America...


I watch Charlie Gibson every night at 5:30...



I tune into see George Stephanopoulos on Sunday mornings now...



But ABC has decided to turn the apple cart upside down and I am forced to accept this change.
Today is Diane Sawyer and Chris Cuomo's last day on GMA.  Oh how I will miss Diane and Chris!











This brings me to talk about more change.  Diane is leaving GMA because she is going to take over the evening news for Charlie, which of course means no more Charlie.  Diane is being replaced by George, which means no more George on Sunday morning.  Chris is going to be the 20/20 anchor on Friday nights and chief reporter, so its a great step up for him.  I also love to follow Chris on Twitter.  He is a great tweeter and sometimes posts photos of himself fishing...shirtless.  It is great to see the photos of him, ummm I mean the fish. 

So now, I'm forced to accept this change.
I HATE change!

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.  …
