TV Time!

A couple of shows returned last week, but this week is definitely premier week for most of my favorite shows.  Of course, this tv week kicks off tonight with the Emmy Awards.  You know how I love an award show!  Tonight I'm pulling for big wins for two of my favorite shows...Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey. 


I'm also pulling for some fabulous fashions (stay tuned, you know a recap of the fashion is coming).

But back to the TV Shows.  I think that for the first time this year, I'm not going to add one single new show.  Maybe I will, but I don't plan to.  I watch enough as it is, and I'm still mad over the cancellation of serveral shows I liked including Brothers & Sisters (though thankfully SoapNet is starting re-runs on Monday).

Here's what is on my DVR line-up...

Mondays:  House (Fox), Gossip Girl (CW) & Castle (ABC)

Tuesdays: NCIS (CBS), Parenthood (NBC) & 90210 (CW)

Wednesdays: Modern Family (ABC)

Thursdays: The Office (NBC), Grey's Anatomy (ABC) & Private Practice (ABC)

Fridays:  Blue Bloods (CBS)

Sundays:  60 Minutes (CBS), The Amazing Race (CBS), The Good Wife (CBS) & Desperate Housewives (ABC).

Of course, I will also continue with my BRAVO shows, and will also pick up One Tree Hill on CW when it starts back.  I also didn't include the "Premium Channel" shows I watch like Weeds (Showtime) & Boardwalk Empire (HBO).  If I lived in England, I would be able to watch the start of the second season of Downton Abbey tonight on ITV, but instead I have to wait until it premiers on PBS on January 8th.  I'm totally bummed about it and I'm trying desperately to find someplace where I can watch it online before then.

What about y'all?  Are you adding any new shows to your DVR schedule?  What premiers are you most looking forward to?

I am so stinking excited about tv starting this week. Considering I only watch Modern Family, Parks and Rec, Office, and Glee I think that is hilarious that I am so excited.

Too soon to say on the new shows.
I am looking forward to X Factor this week.

I absolutely can not wait for Desperate Housewives! Can't believe this is the last season!

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.  …
