Get Smart

August 29, 2012

Karen and I had a nice morning out – she is now feeling extra smart with her brand new Galaxy S III! I am DYING for this phone since my Samsung Infuse is not eligible for the Android ice cream sandwich update. I have to wait until March to get it discounted on my AT&T plan – counting the days! [This phone should not be affected by Apple news..]

I had lots of fun setting her phone up for her. She’s having a bit of a learning curve with the keyboard, but she’s getting better by the minute. We had a hilarious laugh about how she was going to tell the bakery employees that she got a phone that “comes with an ice cream sandwich.” : )


As a thank you for my help and a celebration of my last days before becoming a mom, Karen treated me to a pedicure!


We had fun video chatting with Matt from the bakery! Technology is so cool!


I got home at 1 and put together lunch


Our only leftover slice of pizza


Plum + carrot


And some yogurt with cereal on top



I have a meeting, a delivery to make and an evening event scheduled tonight. See you at sun down!

2 Laurie August 29, 2012 at 12:51 pm

A delivery???? Is it a baby boy? LOL


3 KathEats August 29, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Hahahaha. Hopefully!! A sandwich delivery to another new mom!


4 Alyse August 29, 2012 at 1:05 pm

That’s what my mind said as well! haha.


5 Kelly August 29, 2012 at 1:29 pm

My mind went there too! We are all ready for ya, Kath!


6 Linda August 29, 2012 at 1:38 pm

I thought the exact same thing and loved how non-chalant it was. I’ll make a delivery this afternoon, and off to the next task on the list. :)


7 Monica August 29, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Is the “delivery” Baby KERF? Hehehe. 😉


8 KathEats August 29, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Hah – that’s two of you to guess that. I’m hoping this was a subconscious slip and the answer is YES!


9 Perfectly August 29, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Karen looks great. What a blessing for in-laws to get along :)


10 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning August 29, 2012 at 12:57 pm

My MIL is pretty tech-saavy and has had a smartphone for a while now. My mom still has a flip-phone that is about 6 years old and has no idea how to text! She also still has a landline at her house, and uses that more than anything.
Hooray for pedicures! Did that one spa ever contact you (the one that I gave your info to)?


11 KathEats August 29, 2012 at 1:01 pm

They didn’t :( I emailed her the next day, but I guess she wasn’t really that interested.


12 Johanna B August 29, 2012 at 12:59 pm

I would be ok with you making a 2nd “delivery” today.


13 Kelly August 29, 2012 at 1:05 pm

What a fun day and a GREAT idea to get a peidcure! How fun!!
I know Karen reads the comments but if not, tell her she will totally get used to the keyboard and will LOVE, Love, love her smartphone! If you didn’t tell her already, the auto rotate feature of the phone to the bigger keyboard really helped me to adapt to a smartphone keyboard. Also swiping, especially when I use the smaller keyboard.


14 Jennifer August 29, 2012 at 1:14 pm

What is an ice cream update??


15 KathEats August 29, 2012 at 2:55 pm

To the Android operating system


16 Jennifer August 29, 2012 at 2:57 pm

I guess since I don’t have an Android I have no idea what that means though :) No bigge was just curious.


17 KathEats August 29, 2012 at 3:35 pm

:) all of the operating systems are named after frozen treats… its quite cute! I’m stuck in froyo!


18 Kinley @ Better Off Barefoot August 29, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Wouldn’t it be nice to just “make a delivery” of a baby that you could schedule in your afternoon ?! :) I know that’s not what you meant but you are seemingly doing quite well being patient! Such an exciting time for you guys, best wishes!


19 Andrea August 29, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Every part of the last sentence sounds like it’s a hint! Lol, I know it’s not, but too funny :) Have a great rest of your day!


20 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat August 29, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Ooh phone shopping is fun, but pedicures are even better! Hope that delivery is a baby!


21 Rachel August 29, 2012 at 1:25 pm

aww that’s so nice of her to treat you to a pedi!


22 j3nn August 29, 2012 at 1:40 pm

A pedis sounds sooo good right about now! I want to get one so badly. Must make time for this. I also have to get one of the new Samsung phones; been looking at them for a long time now. They’re so awesome with their huge screens!


23 Stacy @ Say it with Sprinkles August 29, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Yum, that pizza looks amazing!

25 OliePants August 29, 2012 at 1:43 pm

I got a pedicure a couple of weeks before I gave birth and let me tell you – great idea!! Great way to get pampered and when the rest of you isn’t feeling the best, it’s nice to know that your toes look great. It was the small things for me! :)


26 Ashleigh August 29, 2012 at 1:43 pm

A pedicure? There will be a baby soon. I know 3 girls that went into labour within 24 hours of a pedi. Fingers crossed!


27 greenbean August 29, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Karen’s looking so put together as usual!


28 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats August 29, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I love siggi’s! I wish I could find it anywhere other than Whole Foods!


29 Kylie @ immaeatthat August 29, 2012 at 2:20 pm

I hope your planned delivery doesn’t turn into THE delivery:)


30 Kylie @ immaeatthat August 29, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Oh haha everyone else already commented saying that:)


31 Cara August 29, 2012 at 2:23 pm

I tweeted you this then realized that my twitter is protected and you probably didn’t see it!…I was reading your blog during my lunch break today and my boss’s 6 year old son came up to my computer and pointed to your picture (the upper-left hand profile picture you have on every page) and said “I like her, she’s pretty”

Just thought that might brighten your afternoon a bit :)


32 KathEats August 29, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Awww cuteness! Thanks!


33 Molly August 29, 2012 at 2:24 pm

But it’s not yogurt, it’s skyr! And oh-so-delicious, healthy, and all-around fantastic. Whenever I go to Iceland, I consume a disproportionally high amount. I do like the Siggis brand, but wish that skyr in general was easier to find in the US. New business venture?… =)


34 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio August 29, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Hopefully 2 delivers! Have a wonderful evening!


35 Laura (Blogging Over Thyme) August 29, 2012 at 3:16 pm

I have to say, I was a totally Android person, and then I kept having issues with freezing, etc, etc. and then got an Apple and won’t be going back. I find it incredibly user-friendly and really reliable. Plus, the camera is great quality.

Fun day, I love pedicures!


36 Millie Snyder August 29, 2012 at 3:30 pm

I have never seen pizza look so different and so good! Wow!


37 Angel7 August 29, 2012 at 3:31 pm

I did not know that Matt wore glasses.


38 KathEats August 29, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Only sometimes :)


39 Rachel S. Gerber August 29, 2012 at 4:06 pm

I got a pedicure (at week 40) painted with bright orange nails! It was the talk of the town during the delivery room–everyone commented on them in-between pushes! :) I only wished that the pressure points during the foot massage would have done something to bring my sweet one out sooner–born at 41 weeks (induced), but it was a super labor/delivery (just under 3 hours, and 4 pushes). Much love to you in this home stretch of waiting and anticipating!


40 Tessa (@ Attempting Normal) August 29, 2012 at 4:13 pm

What a perfect thing to do… a pretty pedi before the big day. Thinking of you & best of luck!


41 Julie August 29, 2012 at 4:55 pm

You can’t beat a pedicure! Enjoy the relaxing while you can!


42 [email protected] for the Soul August 29, 2012 at 5:54 pm

I’m glad you’re getting so many sweet special treatments! I think every mom and mom to be needs that. 😀 And I bet getting that pedi was like, THE milestone of “Oh, I’m gonna give birth soon!” 😛


43 Simply Life August 29, 2012 at 7:13 pm

karen is way ahead of me – still no smartphone! love that you went for a pedicure after -how fun!


44 Cait's Plate August 29, 2012 at 7:32 pm

The delivery wouldn’t happen to be the baby would it?? 😉


45 Karen August 29, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Now, I want that phone!! If nothing else, it surely is pretty :)

I am so glad you are out of your slump and back to your chipper self, Kath. Your friendship with Karen is just beautiful to observe…she seems so sweet and cool! You are one lucky girl :)


46 Kristen @ The Balanced Bowl August 29, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Your relationship with Karen is so great! I really enjoy reading your posts about the two of you.

As for phones….I still have a “dumb phone.” The only “touch screen” feature is when it touches my cheek while I’m on the phone. 😉


47 Jennifer August 29, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Yay for Karen! I bet she will just LOVE that phone. I want that. :)


48 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More August 29, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Looks like a fun morning!! :)


49 Christina @ The Beautiful Balance August 30, 2012 at 12:19 am

What type of tea is in the background?

I love my iPhone, can not get enough. FaceTime is the greatest thing ever.
