I love music.  I love finding new songs or new artists (not necessarily new, but new to me).  I find that I go through spells where I listen to the same 5 to 10 songs every single time I get in the car.  Right now, this is my "play list"...

Of course, Ryan's new single is played often!
He just released this a couple of weeks ago and then was on The Tonight Show.
He's getting Big Time folks!
I'm also so excited because Perez Hilton told his readers to check out Stay Awhile .
On a side note, I've turned my hair lady on to Ryan, so now I get to hear his music playing in her salon while getting my hair done.
I'm sort of addicted to listening to Free by Graffiti6.
It's such a fun song.  In fact, when I was getting my hair done on Tuesday, my hair lady had this on her play list also.  We cranked the volume and were having a totally good time!
I'm loving Run by Matt Nathanson (featuring Sugarland).
Another song I've been listening to a lot this summer is We are Young by Fun.
It's not unusual for me to have at least one Foo Fighters song in my playlist at any given time, but right now I'm listening to Miracle.  It's not new.  It's not even new to me.  I'm just playing it a lot.
I've got a couple of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals playing in my list.
An older song called Colors
and a newer one called Nothing But the Water (II), not to be confused with Nothing But the Water (I)
I is a totally different song from II.  I has been playing on an ABC new television show preview and is very haunting and soulful.  II definitely has soul, but is a much faster tempo, and makes me wish I was hearing them play it at a music club in NOLA!
Are y'all music people?  Some people listen to music when they are in their car, but don't really buy any or play music in their home.  Does that describe you, or are constantly loading up your ipod?

What are you listening to?  I'm always looking for something new!

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 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.  …
