Snooze-Fest

I'm watching the Oscars and I'm super BORED. This is crazy too because I'm the Oscar's target viewer... I mean I actually look forward to it every year and watch every minute in anticipation. Bored, bored and more bored.

It kind of started out boring too. The dresses weren't knocking my socks off tonight. I have to confess that I'm not in love with these architectural dresses that J-Lo and others are sporting tonight and Kate Hudson wore to the Golden Globes. This may not be everyone's opinion, but it's mine. Also, I like ruffles, but when everyone has ruffles on, it's kind of ruffle overload. Even though I was overall bored, here were the ones that stood out to me...

Shockingly, I love this gold dress Cameron Diaz is wearing.
I wish Sandra Bullock was pulling off this gold number instead of that gold lame one she is sporting.
Oscar de la Renta.... FABULOUS!
Meryl Streep in Chris March (from Project Runway)
My favorite black dress of the night...
Mariska Hargitay in Vera Wang
I like this dress Demi Moore is wearing, but I'm not sure who made it

Now for the No! No! NO! group of dresses...

Charlize Theron. I usually love you and think that you would look good in a potato sack...
Maybe you should have gone with the potato sack!
Oh Chanel! You made such a poor showing tonight. Sarah Jessica Parker and then this number you put Diane Kruger in.
Zoe Saldana in a dress that is just "too much" everything... the bling on top, the architectural shaping at the waist, the ruffles, and ruffles and ruffles.

Now I'm going to go try and finish watching the Oscars and not be bored to death, but before I go, let me just say that I love Gabourey Sidibe. That girl has got spunk! Seriously, watch an interview with her and not end up with a smile on your face!
Update: This show is so boring, Lola just jumped off the couch and got in her kennel!
Seriously, who ever thought Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin would be so un-funny?

Courtney I agree about Tina Fey. I almost included her too, but didn't want too many black dresses in my list. Love her dress.

I'm torn about Sandy...Go from love to not love so much. I'll have to see where I settle on it.

I didn't like Sandy's dress but by the end of the night I liked it. I thought Miley's dress was terrible and I didn't like SJP's dress that she presented in (not sure if that's what she came in because I missed that part of the show.)

I did love Cameron's dress.

I agree with all their comentários.Gostei Cameron's dress but not like your makeup or Sandra BULOK (very red lipstick). Hargitay was the best dressed woman of the night. Dress, hair, makeup everything perfect. What I love about Mariska is that its beauty is natural. Also who has a face and a skin like hers

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.  …
