thoughts on tv {so far}

So have y'all started on the new premiers?  I have been enjoying the premiers so far (of course it's only Monday).  I spent a large part of last week watching Ken Burns' "The Roosevelts".  That was a 14 hour commitment, so I really feel like I have accomplished something there.

Last week "The Mindy Project" premiered.  It was awesome.  Man, oh man, do I love that show.

Last night was a big night of premiers for me... 60 minutes, Madam Secretary, and The Good Wife.  CBS drives me nuts on Sunday nights.  They never budget enough time for stupid football.  Then it jacks with my DVR, and Drives.  Me.  Nuts.

Anyway, I was very excited for 60 minutes.  Big.  Fan.  I have a friend who is also a big fan, so we can always discuss the episodes.  Total Nerd Alert.

Madame Secretary was off to a decent start.  I think it has potential.  It has great actors.  I just wish they hadn't dumbed it down so much, and I also wish that there weren't so many inaccuracies.  I don't mind not working my brain for an hour, but I don't want my brain to hurt for an hour due to the inaccurate depiction of the government offices.  So I'm willing to give it a go, I just hope that it gets better.

The Good Wife... what in the world?  Holy moly.  This show is good.  It's just so darn good.

I'm looking forward to more previews.  I'm just about beside myself because Thursday is the "Big" night for premiers and Texas Tech plays football.  Who in the world scheduled that?  I mean, good grief!

Any thoughts on previews you guys have seen?  Or am looking forward to?

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.  …
