Bad, bad blogger

So I've been MIA from the blogworld this week. No real good reason why other than, I've been kind of busy on both of my work fronts. 

So Oscar.  I think that Anne Hathaway and James Franco have gotten a bum wrap.  Were they they most fabulous hosts?  No.  But they were exactly what I expected them to be way back when I heard they were picked as hosts.  You don't  bring a magician to a party and expect him to play the cello.  That's all I'm saying.  I did think that all 7 of Anne's looks were beautiful.  I also really liked Mandy Moore...

Gwyneth Paltrow...
and Jennifer Lawrence... 

I'm not usually a Calvin Klein fan, but I was on Sunday night. 

I thought Sandra looked good as well, but she needed a necklace to achieve perfection.  Needless to say, I was over the moon about the success of The King's Speech.  So happy that the best picture screw-up from the Golden Globes was rectified!  And Colin...swoon!

On another note, I'm pretty keyed up that my CW shoes on are hiatus until mid-April.  Mid-April!  No Gossip Girl for over a month!  Sucks.  This totally sucks.  And just when we were on the cusp of a Blair Waldorff-Dan Humprey relationship (?)!  So hateful CW, so hateful!

Finally, I'm excited that a new SOBO trailer has been released.  I like this trailer better than the first, and I'm ready to see it May 6th!

i've been *patiently waiting* for your oscar's post!!

LOVED mandy moore's dress. it might have been my fave of the night and i haven't heard it talked about very much. this is going to sound so ugly, but i can't stand gwyneth paltrow. at all. i thought she looked good, but she was no wear near the top of my list b/c i just can't stand her. (i know, i'm mean!)

i think the main problem with james franco and anne hathaway was that they just had TERRIBLE chemistry together! it's like they had just met 5 minutes before the show. i really think they need to stick to leaving the hosting gig with a comedian.

I have so been waiting (not patiently) for your oscar post! I have to agree, both of them are just kind of blah to begin with. I always want to love Anne (and I do in most of her movies) but she always disappoints in interviews.

Just finished reading both Something books. Clearly I loved them! So now that I'm a book reader and a movie watcher, I'm going to go out and see the movie!! I know who put this person in my body!!

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.  …
