"Super" Weekend

Yesterday I spent about 4 hours walking the campaign trail for a friend that is running for Judge. I'll post more on my campaigning efforts later, but let me just say that walking for 4 hours in your new black uggs = black feet at the end of the day. Oh well, my black tootsies stayed really warm!

As for today, I'm doing nothing Super Bowl related. I did however go to one of my favorite spots for brunch with four of my favorite people. Here are some pics of the two littles of the four that I brunched with...

Yeah, the photos didn't blend so well together and then my computer locked up before I could fix it and I just quit, but aren't little Bennett and Kate so darn cute! The bottom right is Ben's surprise when he discovered I had a new paparazzi camera and had been taking photos of him.


Last weekend I watched a list of critically acclaimed films and today I'm watching what I've dubbed the "crap pack" of films. They are films that I wanted to see even though I suspect them to be really crappy. I've watched one of the two so far. I watched "Post Grad" because I love Alexis Bledel (even though she is kind of always Rory from Gilmore Girls in my mind no matter what I see her in). It was better than I expected. Before I move on though, let me throw this question out to you... What in the heck happened to Michael Keaton? Yikes! OLD! And not a good old either.

I'm about to watch Wolverine now. Not because I give a hoot about the X-Men or anything similarly related, but because I think Hugh Jackman is dreamy and well, I've read that there is A LOT of Hugh in this one! I'm really deep that way. Hey-sometimes when it comes to picking movies, a girl's just got to leave the Oscar score card at the door!

I probably won't watch much of the Super Bowl, but I'm cheering on the Saints and making Crawfish Etouffee for dinner. It's a big time for my beloved New Orleans...Super Bowl, Mardi Gras and Mitch Landrieu as the new mayor!

We watched The Hangover last night and it was much better then I expected. Pretty funny and not too stupid.

We are staying home and might watch the Super Bowl. Might not since it is starting now and I am watching last weeks Project Runway.

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.  …
