SOBO

Y'all know I read a lot, but one author that I always rush to the bookstore and grab her books the day they come out, is Emily Giffin. A couple of times, I've even gone to her book signings...

Just a side note here, she has lived my dream life: Went to law school, was a lawyer, quit being a lawyer, moved to London to write, became successful writer and now lives back in the USA where her books are being made into movies and she is schmoozing with celebrities like Kate Hudson, Collin Egglesfield and John Krasinski just to name a few.

I always really like her books, but some I really love. I LOVED the "something" series...

Something Borrowed

Something Blue
Something Borrowed has been made into a movie, which comes out on May 6th, and I couldn't be more excited about it.  I often hold off the excitement about a favorite book being made into a film, but after hearing Emily talk about it at her book signing and reading her tweets about it, I'm taking the risk and allowing myself to be excited.  She has promised that though there are a few changes, it is fairly true to the book.  So this is a film that I'm looking forward to with much of the same anticipation that I held for the Sex and the City movie releases. 

It's getting closer to the release date, so we are finally getting some good teasers.  The poster came out a few weeks ago...

and the trailer finally came out this week!

















If you haven't read SOBO, I'd recommend doing so immediately, so that you'll be ready to rush out to the theatre with me to see it opening day (okay, I'll cut you some slack, or opening weekend).  The more people that go see it opening weekend, the quicker Something Blue gets to filming!

I need to order the books- but still unlikely that I'll make it to the movie anytime soon. I can't seem to get to anything that isn't animated. :(

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.  …
