Warning: Addictive TV Ahead

I don't know how, but sometime on Sunday between watching Precious and procrastinating what really needed to be done, I stumbled upon some TV Gold. Gold I tell you! It is on WE TV and it is called My Fair Wedding with David Tutera.

Here is the premise of every show: 3 weeks before the wedding, David shows up and takes over the wedding. When he shows up, the bride shows him what she has planned. Then he decides what is craptastic and what he wants to change. He takes the Bride to look at 3 options of all the things he wants to change, but doesn't tell her which one he picked until the wedding day.

Here's what I LOVE about this show: You couldn't make up the crazy crap that these people have planned! Watching David's response (or lack of response in some cases) is some of the funniest television I've ever seen.

Sometimes the dress is bad. Sometimes the bridesmaid dresses are bad. Sometimes the theme is bad. Sometimes the colors are bad. Sometimes it is the venue (hello Fire Hall, I'm talking about you). All and all, they end up with a FABULOUS wedding that not only is a ton more expensive than what they were planning in most cases, but way more beautiful and elegant.

Episodes aren't airing right now (I got in on a repeat marathon), but new episodes are starting up this June. The episodes I saw were primarily Brooklyn, New Jersey, Pennsylvania weddings, but I saw where this new season is focusing on LA and DALLAS! I can wait to see what kind of tragic train wreck of weddings that David saves! You know the Dallas girls could have some CRAZY CAKES kind of ideas!

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.  …
