The Golden Globes 2013

One of my very favorite "seasons" began on Sunday... awards season!  I know there was a People's Choice Award a week or so ago, but I'm an awards snob and don't count that one.  My Award Season includes:  The Golden Globes, SAG, Grammys, and Academy Awards.

I am so behind on my movies this year that I honestly couldn't pull for one nominee over the other (I plan to remedy that by SAG, or definitely by the Oscars), but that is part of the beauty of the Globes, there are television nominees too!  So I did get to watch those categories with some knowledge, though many I found myself too torn to have an opinion one way or the other.  Take the best Television Drama category...I mean Homeland vs. Boardwalk Empire vs. The Newsroom vs. Downton Abbey!  Why not make me choose between my right leg, left leg, right arm, or left arm!  I could not possibly choose!

One thing I did feel more than capable of judging though...the fashion!

I liked Julianne Hough in this little number by Monique Lhullier.
I don't think that the dress alone was a wowsa, but I think it was the styling that made me like it.  
I liked the princessy dress juxtaposed with the rocker hair-do.


I enjoyed Juliann Moore in this little diddy that Tom Ford whipped up for her...

I also liked Eva Longoria's dress by Pucci.  I loved the lace.  I loved the sleeves.  I thought the back was gorgeous, but I wish the leg slit had been a little less high...

Nicole Kidman looked great in Alexander McQueen...

Good grief!  I'm liking lots of black dresses!  Here's some color...

I loved Jennifer Garner, but I almost always do.  I thought she and Ben were just adorable.  I loved her red Vivienne Westwood gown...

I would have liked Jennifer Lawrence's gown by Dior...


except it did a weird thing with her boobs when viewed from the side...


Before I pick my fav, let me dish about the disasters.

Halle Berry looked terrible in her Versace dress...

and Sienna Miller was just a big ol' doily in her Erdem dress...

And I just couldn't hop on board with Jessica Chastain's whole look (she wore Calvin Klein). 
The dress was too droopy.  The hair too...too...too all around terrible!

I think my favorite of the evening was...


........Drum roll.....




Kate Hudson in McQueen!


I know some people loved it, and some people hated it, but for me, it's all Love Love Love!

As far as seeing the nominated films, I realized yesterday that I have not been to see a movie since Good Friday when I saw Moonrise Kingdom!  What on earth?!?!  

I made a list of movies to see:

Argo
Les Mis
Lincoln
Zero Dark Thirty
Silver Linings Playbook

if I get really ambitious, I'll add:

Django Unchained
Beasts of the Southern Wild

Life of Pi is the only one I have absolutely zero interest in seeing.

Here is my plan of attack:  I saw that Argo is being released on DVD on 2/19, so my plan is to wait until that week and catch it on Apple TV.  Beast of the Southern Wild has already been released, so that would be easy to see as well.

Yesterday, I took a long lunch and saw Silver Linings Playbook.  I don't really have any order to my list, as I'm just seeing whichever movie is playing at a convenient time.  Today, I wanted to go again, but I got wrapped up in other things (Work, ugh!  How annoying!).  

Did you watch?  Did your favorite movie or television shows win?
Whose dress did you love?  Hate?

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.  …
