Fall TV Update

I wrote about my tv watching plans in September. I stated that I had no intentions to pick up any new shows, but the best laid plans...

I started watching two new shows. Both air on Sunday nights. They are Homeland on Showtime & Pan Am on ABC.

Homeland is so good, but it scares the bejesus out of me on a weekly basis.  Here is a description of the show "Centers on Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody, who returns home eight years after going missing in Iraq, and Carrie Anderson, a driven (and possibly unstable) CIA officer who suspects he might be plotting an attack on America."

Pan Am is not heavy drama tv, but fun and light.  I've found it to be very enjoyable.

I have dumped a few shows without really intending to. I just have not been into The Amazing Race this season. I have also dumped Desperate Housewives. I had several episodes of DH on my DVR & realized that I just didn't care to watch them.

Other shows I'm loving this season are:
Parenthood (NBC)--great show.  Love the cast, plus I get to still see Lorelai Gilmore on a weekly basis!
Boardwalk Empire (HBO) even though it has been really gruesome the past couple of weeks

Blue Bloods (CBS)--probably in large part because I love Tom Selleck.  Have I ever told you that when I attended at taping on "The View" back in 2005, he was the guest?!?

The Good Wife (CBS)--it's been really good this season, plus I love Julianna Marguiles & Chris Noth (the other actors are great too).

I'm also looking forward to some "new" shows starting up in the next couple of months.  At the end of November, "The Closer" will pick back up on TNT for 6 episodes.  Of course, I cannot hardly stand the wait until January when "Downton Abbey" starts back.  PBS has a countdown clock going... 61 days, 11 hours 20 minutes until the premier!  Finally, I think that ABC's "Good Christian Belles" might be good (Formerly known as "Good Christian Bitches" until it made too many people pissy).


What about you guys? What are you loving on TV this Fall?

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.  …
