They Call Her Flipper

February 27, 2011

Look at my fins!


We had lots of fun playing by the pool this afternoon. It was so warm!!


Finally got into our room, showered up. Boy did it feel nice to put on mascara again!

I ate an orange slice Karen had packed for nourishment.


We dressed ourselves up for the Great Harvest welcome gala – a taco feast under the stars!

I had two glasses of white wine (a Chard and a Pinot Grigio) throughout the night. It would have been so easy to drink 5. Glad I stuck to 2!


There were stations set up for make-your-own tacos


As well as made-to-order quesadillas.


And a big salad bar


I had a chicken taco with all the fixins and a quesadilla plus a side of salad


For dessert – churros! I split one with Karen.


Mucho aqua for dessert!


The conference starts bright and early tomorrow morning with breakfast at 6:45. I’m here blogging and getting ready for 8 hours – and Matt is out at some bar! That crazy guy.

2 Angela (Oh She Glows) February 27, 2011 at 10:25 pm

Matt is going to be hurtin’ in the AM, lol. Prepare the wheatgrass!


3 Casey February 27, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Churros is the best thing ever. I had them for the first time in Disney World. Heaven.


4 Katy (The Singing Runner) February 27, 2011 at 10:32 pm

Looks amazing and so much fun! I’m jealous! Have a great day tomorrow!


5 Heather Filipowicz February 27, 2011 at 10:33 pm

The sun makes me jealous. Just wanted to say, please tell Karen she looks amazing.


6 Estela @ Weekly Bite February 27, 2011 at 10:34 pm

What a fun evening!! I can’t wait for warm days like that :)


7 Jenn February 27, 2011 at 10:34 pm

So jealous you’re in FL right now, looks beautiful down there. The beach would be a dream for me with all the seashells! I would just run out with a big bucket to bring them home! I love the cover up you wore to the pool and the cute dress tonight. Where did you get both of them? Thanks!


8 Mel @ February 27, 2011 at 10:37 pm

My oh my, how much do I need a pool right now!? It snowed in bean town this weekend, just after the rain washed most of it away. What a bummer! I’m living vicariously through you, so please have a strawberry margarita. 😉


9 Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers February 27, 2011 at 10:38 pm

I’m loving your long hair! Hope you guys have a great time at the conference :-)


10 Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete February 27, 2011 at 10:39 pm

I cannot wait for it to be warm enough to wear a short dress outside — enjoy the warm weather!


11 Amanda (Eating Up) February 27, 2011 at 10:41 pm

That pool water looks so blue! And that taco bar is a great idea. Way better than conferences I’ve been to!


12 Jessica - Dinners, Desserts, & More February 27, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Wow!! What a fun night… those tacos looked awesome …and the churros too! Yum!


13 Namaste Gurl February 27, 2011 at 10:42 pm

These photos bring me back to memories of the summer in Hawaii. Ugh, did I say jealous? :)


14 Kim February 27, 2011 at 10:46 pm

Looks lovely. Also want to comment that Karen looks great with her little hat and the head scarf she was wearing in another photo. Go Karen!!! This 44 year old single mom from Kirkland, WA (suburb of Seattle) is pulling for her!


15 Kat @ Cupcake Kat February 27, 2011 at 10:48 pm

Oh my gosh make your own tacos I am so envious. Looks like so much fun and the food looks delicious.
Are you swimming with your sunglasses?


16 KathEats February 28, 2011 at 6:16 am

Yeah I always do!

Tacos and churros! Sounds like the perfect night.


26 Allison February 27, 2011 at 11:23 pm

Where did you get your dress? I am not headed anywhere warm and sunny like Florida anytime soon but I would just love a bright, colorful dress!


27 KathEats February 28, 2011 at 6:16 am

LOFT last year

31 Nicole @ A Vegan in the House February 27, 2011 at 11:38 pm

How fun! You look really good in the red and pink colors in your dress. You should definitely wear those colors more often.


32 Ashley February 27, 2011 at 11:43 pm

Yikes! 6:45!? Love how Florida-ey you all look!!! The wine/ice bucket photo rocks!


33 Hannah February 27, 2011 at 11:43 pm

Matt being out at a bar…men. Go figure!

Your sundress is adorable! And 2 glasses of wine, not 5. Impressive :)

Love your beachy pics and posts.

36 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) February 28, 2011 at 12:31 am

You and Karen look gorgeous! Love your pretty dress. It’s so weird, not so long ago you’re in Montana in frigid weather, and now you’re on the beach looking tropical! Awesomeness at its finest!!

PS. Taco buffet = amazing


37 Christine February 28, 2011 at 1:03 am

I love that you have enough self-control to split churros. I’d be going back for seconds!


38 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) February 28, 2011 at 1:29 am

Awesome sunset picture and what a wonderful food spread you got to choose from last evening!
Love the ruffle detailing on your dress too Kath!


41 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is February 28, 2011 at 6:28 am

45 Katie @ Real Food Katie's Way February 28, 2011 at 7:14 am

You look so beautiful in that outfit!

The mexican spread looks out of this world!

I’ve wondered this for years. Who takes the picture of all three of you? Do you stop a random person walking by and ask them to take photos?


46 KathEats February 28, 2011 at 7:51 am

Little of column A, little of column B!


47 Simply Life February 28, 2011 at 7:14 am

wow, what a great day/meal!


48 Lauren at Keep It Sweet February 28, 2011 at 7:19 am

That looks too good to be true, I want to be there!


49 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey February 28, 2011 at 7:38 am

My Husband would be out at some bar too – boys are so crazy. I need 7-8 hours of sleep or I am a wreck. You look gorgeous in your flowery sundress!!


50 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin February 28, 2011 at 7:48 am

You three look so happy and glowy!


51 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat February 28, 2011 at 7:55 am

Wow what a great spread of food! I LOVE that dress you’re wearing Kath – you look gorgeous! :)


52 Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn February 28, 2011 at 8:04 am

Make-your-own AANYTHING are zee best! Especially when it comes to mexican food. And churros! It has been WAY too long since I have had one!


53 Kristine February 28, 2011 at 8:40 am

You look gorgeous in that fun colored dress :)


54 Marci February 28, 2011 at 8:48 am

super cute dress! looks lovely and nice for y’all to get a break from the cold! also, that shell covered beach isn’t typical of ALL of the Gulf. We go to Destin, FL often and it’s usually perfect white sandy beaches. But ouch!


55 MelanieF February 28, 2011 at 8:55 am

Wow! That weather makes me jealous, we are currently having a snowstorm here (Canada). Enjoy this wonderful weather! :-)


56 Baking 'n' Books February 28, 2011 at 8:57 am

You were made for Florida!


57 Stacie @ Imperfectly Healthy February 28, 2011 at 9:05 am

I love the pink dress!


58 JenATX February 28, 2011 at 9:28 am

59 Eileen February 28, 2011 at 9:35 am

I love your dress, and Karen looks lovely. I hope she’s feeling well!

That’s a very fun idea for feeding the masses.


60 Jess (Sweet Potato) February 28, 2011 at 10:10 am

Seeing you swimming makes me want summer even more! And those tacos looks amazing… I might have to hit up a Mexican restaurant this weekend…


61 Erin @ The Grass Skirt February 28, 2011 at 11:01 am

I have the same dress from Ann Taylor Loft! Love it! :) The pool pics are making me wish that I was swimming right now!


62 Alaina February 28, 2011 at 11:09 am

That dress is adorable! I love it!

Drooling over the taco bar too. Yum! 😛


63 Amanda (tomboy that wears makeup) February 28, 2011 at 11:26 am

HAHA- My guy would do the same! Way to go with being responsible and staying organized!


64 Shannon @ A Better Me February 28, 2011 at 12:12 pm

I love churros! Looks like an amazing day 😀 Jealous…


65 [email protected] February 28, 2011 at 1:17 pm

I miss melt in your mouth churros… so good!


66 Stacey (The Home-Cooked Vegan) February 28, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Taco bars are awesome! My boyfriend would have been in heaven at one of those 😀 Enjoy learning about GH! That weather just looks lovely


67 Tina February 28, 2011 at 1:57 pm

All that food looks phenomenal! It would be hard for me to practice self control with a spread like that!


68 erica February 28, 2011 at 2:01 pm

love that dress on you! stunning!


69 Jen February 28, 2011 at 3:51 pm

Beautiful photos of the night, Kath. You and Karen are glowing – so pretty! Looks like your enjoying the warm weather and nice scenery. Soak it up!


70 Ali February 28, 2011 at 4:00 pm

I guess I’m a “lurker” but I’ve been reading your blog for a while (more than a year) and really don’t post comments. I just wanted to say that Karen looks radiant. :)


71 Amy March 1, 2011 at 10:32 am

I’m so glad to see that Karen is with you in FL and it seems like she’s having a good time and still has a good appetite. It makes my heart ache a little because my lovely Aunt just passed away last year from breast cancer and I saw the pain she went through. I’m so glad to see that Karen is doing well and that she has you both by her side =)


72 KathEats March 1, 2011 at 11:08 am

So sorry to hear of your aunt amy
