Fall TV {2014}

I love TV, and for those of us who love TV, there is nothing better than premier week.  Those casts we love are back, and maybe we are even looking forward to meeting new characters on some new shows.  I've made my spreadsheet of what comes on when, and when each show premiers.  Here are the shows I'm most looking forward to seeing again:

Returning this week on Fox for it's 3rd Season is The Mindy Project
To say that I LOVE this show, doesn't go far enough.  I watch each episode at least 2 times.  Last time I did that?  We are talking Sex and the City people.  I'm serious about this show.  It makes me laugh so hard.

And as an aside, I desperately want to be friends with Mindy Kaling!  But back to the greatness that is the show... Season One was good, Season Two was great, and I cannot wait until Season Three starts this Tuesday.  If you haven't jumped onto The Mindy Project train, get onboard...NOW!  Catch up with the first two seasons while DVR'ing the new season until you are ready to watch.

Of course I'm also ready for some Scandal!
Where on Earth is Olivia Pope?


Parenthood  is another one I'm really looking forward to.  This is the finale year, so it is bittersweet.  I'm so glad that NBC renewed it for a final, albeit shorter season, but I hate that great ensemble cast shows are so hard to keep running.  I love the Braverman family!  It is a show that makes me laugh and cry through every single episode without fail.

I also can't wait for The Good Wife.  It is great TV
And if you watch, this promo probably makes you have the same reaction that I did!
(If you don't watch, you should!)


There are several new shows I plan to give a shot, but one of the new shows I'm really looking forward to is Madam Secretary.
It seems to have several things I love on it's side: Washington, D.C., Great cast... 

What about you?  What are you looking forward to seeing on your TV?



I've excluded cable shows from this post.  I LOVE my cable shows, and am greatly enjoying those that are currently running, and eagerly await the return of some others, but since they don't fall into the typical network premier dates, I did not cover them here.

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.  …
