I wanna go...

I thought about calling this post Musical Thursday, but instead, I decided on "I wanna go...", because there are lots of concerts that I find myself saying, "Oh, I wanna go!".

Adele's North American tour has been rescheduled.  And she just so happens to be making her way to my area of the world on the day before my birthday!  I think I wanna go!  I LOVE Adele.  If you don't know Adele, check her out and buy her CD's.  Her voice is incredible.  I'm pretty sure I'd have goosebumps the entire concert.



And yes, if you haven't figured it out, my ipod looks like a pchysophrenic person the music downloaded music.







Of course, I wanna go see Foo Fighters in concert.  I haven't see them in concert since 02' or 03' (can't remember which).  It was at this craptastic venue at the Fair Grounds.  There weren't any seats, everyone just stood around and crowded the stage.  I remember that they didn't take the stage until like 10:30 that night and I felt like a zombie in court the next morning.

But alas, the Foo haven't schedule one single Texas date on the current tour.  They released some additional dates this summer and I thought surely they would add Texas, but they didn't.  I still am holding out hope.  They are one of my favorite bands!



Soundgarden has added Dallas to their Reunion Tour.  I really want to see them. I mean they disbanded in 1997, and I didn't expect a full reunion. My friend Daryl went to see them in LA already and said it was awesome. He's going to see them in San Fran too. Trouble is, they are coming to Dallas on October 26th, which is a Wednesday. I have to get up super early on Thursday mornings, so I'm afraid attending this concert would be bad for me.



Tomorrow night, Steve Wariner is going to be at one of the Indian Casinos that isn't too far away. I'd really like to go see him. We used to go see him all the time back in the late 1980's early 1990's. My Dad really liked him and we would go every time he came through Wichita Falls. I wonder how much old stuff he would play, because I don't know a single thing he's done in the past 20 years???






and finally, I love to go see Willie again, and he's going to be in Grandbury (not too far away), and also at a Casino close by in November. Fact: A Willie Nelson concert was the first concert I ever attended. I was probably 5...maybe 4, and Whiskey River was my favorite song. I named my Pekingese Willie...he should have been named Lucifer instead, but that's another story for another day. Anyway, I LOVED Willie...and Donna Summer. I led a sheltered Disney kind of life, as you can tell :)



What about you all? Any concerts in your future, or ones you are wanting to attend? I'm sure I won't make it to any of these, but I like to think about it.

Oh, you lucky gal! If Adele is in your neck of the woods, I would get tickets!!! Go, go, go! I've heard she's amazing live.
Adele! Can we make it happen? She is at the top of my list for wanting to see live.

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.  …
