I Love TV

I love TV.  I have loved TV for a long time.  For my 5th birthday, my great-grandfather bought me the coolest TV on earth...or at least I thought it was.  It was a 19 inch color tv with a remote control.  Not only that, but it also had a built in telephone.  I could use my remote to dial people and actually talk over the TV.  Anyway, the birthday gift when I was 5 helped turned me into the tv junkie that I am today.

Being the TV Junkie means that I've been happy as a clam this week since Fall premiers have started.  I've already caught new episodes of Gossip Girl and Parenthood.  There are several new shows that I'm hoping are great.  One premiers tonight, even though it's actually going to run on Friday nights...

I saw that People Magazine didn't give "Outlaw" with Jimmy Smits a high rating, but come on, it's Jimmy!  I love Jimmy and will watch him in just about anything, including that crapalicious show about the Cubans running the rum company that was on a few seasons ago, but got cancelled mid-way through it's first season.  If you haven't heard about "Outlaw", Jimmy is a Supreme Court Justice who decides to say "screw it all" and quits the bench to practice law and help the people who really need it.  It's running on NBC.

Another show I'm greatly anticipating is "Blue Bloods" on CBS.  It stars a lot of good people, but most importantly, Tom Selleck

I love Tom Selleck.  Did you know that when I was in New York a few years back, I got tickets to see a taping of "The View" and we lucked out and Tom Selleck was the guest?  Yep, I was.  I have photos to prove it!  Anyway, "Blue Bloods" is going to be on CBS on Friday nights at 9 beginning on 9/24.

There are several other shows that I'm going to give a trial run to as well.  "The Event" with Blair Underwood is another one.  It's a NBC show airing on Wednesdays at 8:00. 

Smits, Selleck, Underwood...what can I say, I'm a child of the 80's!

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.  …
