My Favorite Emmy Moments

It take a real major catastrophe to keep me from watching an award show (except all those Country Music ones that they seem to have every 6 weeks).  I know that everyone doesn't always watch.  My law partner, Jennifer, never watches.  I think she does that just to irritate me. 

Anyway,  here are my favorite Emmy Moments (and P.S. I now have such a crush on Jimmy Fallon because he is so funny!)

The opening skit...


Two of My Favs: George Clooney and Modern Family



A Musical Tribute to 3 shows going off the air...


Now for the dresses....

Sure there were some pretty dresses, but there weren't any that I was over the moon with.  There were a few disappointments though...

It's not that this is bad, but doesn't she wear this same darn dress to everything?
Spice it up a little!

ick, ick, ick!
I had a strong dislike for January Jones' dress

and this falls under a total disappointment
I LOVE Lauren Graham and think she is so beautiful, but this was a total let down.

I'll be tuning in to Fashion Police tonight on E! to see if any of the dresses become a "I LOVE" dress...

I think there were lots of pretty dresses, but nothing that really wowed me. Lots of ugly ones! January Jones was the worst. I can only imagine what Rachel Zoe had to say about it. Do you watch Rachel Zoe?

The musical skit cracked me up! Jimmy Fallon was so funny. Loved it!

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.  …
