Red + Green

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Maybe I will get a present from Santa today ; )

I was up earlier than normal this morning and hungrier than normal too! Big bowl of oats did the trick.

Coach’s Oats whipped with banana, milk and water. Vanilla + cottage cheese stirred in at the end! Cville Cluster crumbs and sunflower butter on top.

And some tea to help me wake up

I hate that I’m writing so late – you guys are putting the pressure on when you say you’re checking every 10 minutes when my post is delayed! I kept getting distracted and thinking “I HAVE TO BLOG NOW!” FYI, lunch post might be delayed due to film crew… I’ll let you know on Twitter if my water breaks or I have my first contraction while on camera :mrgreen:

Have a great Tuesday!

Wouldn’t it be fun to have your birth caught on [professional] camera? :)

I’ve been checking too. BabyKERF bump watch is officially on — no pressure though, we are all just so excited for you and Matt.

I am sure you do feel pressured now, but just remember that although you choose to share your life with all of us, this is your time! We will all be happy to see pictures of the little one and read all about your experience, but if a delay in news gives you time to live in the moment, then I say go for it! That being said, I am checking the blog and twitter feeds as much as the rest of you :)

15 KathEats August 28, 2012 at 9:34 am

: ) Thanks for the reminder

16 Karen August 28, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I agree, Kath…please take some much deserved private time with your family…we’ll all be happy that you are giving yourself a little break from us and enjoying every moment bonding with your newborn son. :)

I’ve heard of Christmas in July, but I like Christmas in August too! :)

19 coco August 28, 2012 at 9:25 am

you’re sooo close!!!
i’ve noticed that you said you got hungrier these days… do you think it’s because of the belly has dropped down? I can’t wait to start feeling hungry again… or less full.

Reply

20 KathEats August 28, 2012 at 9:33 am

Maybe? Although I think it’s because I didn’t snack after dinner and I just have more needs. But yes, my stomach space definitely increased when he dropped

21 Rebecca @ Blueberry Smiles August 28, 2012 at 9:33 am

Hope the filming goes well!

22 Kristi August 28, 2012 at 9:37 am

Late September.

I finally tried your whipped banana oatmeal today. I added peanut butter and mini chocolate chips to the mix – delicious!

Yay!

29 Lauren August 28, 2012 at 10:02 am

FILM CREW?! That’s exciting. Perhaps I’m missing something, which is likely since we’ve spent most of the past few days bracing for Isaac. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you!

Kath you were in my dream last night! I visited your store in Charlottesville, and you were wearing bright red lipstick. Funny what the mind does when it is sleeping…Anyway hope baby KERF comes soon!

37 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More August 28, 2012 at 10:17 am

Since I’m moving (TOMORROW!), I have no food in the house and your oatmeal looks SO much better than the batch of instant I just scrounged up for myself. A little jealous… ;)

Reply

38 Danielle August 28, 2012 at 10:29 am

I hope we all are not making you feel too pressured! Relax and enjoy every second before he is born. I just enjoy checking your posts to see what’s going on. He will come when he is ready. Thank you so much for sharing with us!

I hope Santa brings you your present today!

It can’t be xmas b/c that would mean missing like 3 great months of pumpkin season :)

The oats look wonderful! Good luck….hope your present is delivered today! ;)

44 Marya August 28, 2012 at 11:15 am

Now I’m totally curious about this film crew. Are you going to be on A Baby Story? I guess not if this is a longer-term freelance project. Hmmm, inquiring minds want to know!

Reply

45 KathEats August 28, 2012 at 11:26 am

Haha no, but that would be cool!

Reply

46 Katharina August 28, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Oh man, I would love to see you and Matt and Berf on that show! We should have started a petition to get you on there!! Probably too late for that now…

Reply

47 KathEats August 28, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I always wanted to be on A Wedding Story, but I never could understand why women wanted their very personal (and sometimes very revealing!) labors on public television. I would like a video of my birth for personal reflection though, but videos aren’t allowed in our hospital.

Reply

48 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats August 28, 2012 at 11:43 am

Haha clearly the anticipation is getting to all of us! Have fun today!

49 Destiny August 28, 2012 at 11:53 am

We’re prepped and ready for Isaac.. Main reason I’m worried about losing power? Missing out on the BERF!!!

I have heard of Christmas in July, but not in August :)

Mmm mmm I never get tired of your oatmeal pics! I was away for a while and just now catching up on the blog. I’m glad you’re still here. :) But I give you permission to have the baby any time this Wed thru next Monday. I’m going to London and won’t be able to read my favorite blogs while I’m there. ;) I’ll be excited to catch up on everything when I return!

Reply

53 Cait's Plate August 28, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Haha – don’t feel pressure! Just enjoy these next few days to NOT be on a schedule before you’re on a really strict one! :)

And I love the red and green – it never fails to get me excited for Christmas no matter the time of year!

54 Meagan August 28, 2012 at 3:59 pm

If you want to blog late, feel free :) It’s your life :) no pressure!

55 Shana August 28, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Even though I don’t know you personally, I am enjoying the suspense of waiting for baby! Perhaps this is why people are so addicted to a baby story (I never saw the show)?!?! I think I even hold my breath a little bit every time I check the blog, like, did it happen? Is this it? I’m such a dork. GOOD LUCK!!! Hope he’s ready soon!

56 Travis Ehrenstrom August 31, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Yum Yum Yum! Thanks for the great post. I shouldn’t be looking at food photo’s right before dinner! I really hope that at some point I can learn how to make a yummy bowl of granola.

Would you be willing to offer up your recipe in more detail!?

I’ve just started eating granola in the morning instead of cereal and I can already feel the health benefits!

Thanks again!
