Amazing

Last night Chris and I had the best night! I don't know if we were like two teenagers in love or more like old people but heres what went down...he asked if I would like to go out to dinner so I thought all day about where to go and the only place that I couldn't get out of my head was none other than the all American I-HOP! We hopped in the car and found the closest Ihop which by the way is 3 miles from us....we sat down with grandma and grandpas surrounding our table and ordered us the never ending pancake special. It was so perfect! I ate 4 pancakes, 2 eggs, hashbrowns and bacon....totally beat Chris. Our dinner only cost us $12.61, pretty awesome! We headed home and decided that we wanted to play tennis. It had to be the most entertaining game of tennis ever. We lost almost all of our balls and by the time we did lose all of them I thought I was going to fall over. We gathered all of them-finally and headed back home. (We are now huge fans of tennis and will be playing every night.) Anyway, when we got home we got right into a game of Yahtzee..everynight is game night at our house. If you're ever in the mood for games you know where we live :) That's pretty much it. Just wanted to share our wonderful night with all of you.

C&N,

We are so blessed to have you in our lives and we've already shared so many important memories together. We love you both so much and we hope 2008 brings you more joy, love and happiness. Pops is in our prayers and we're sending you all our love. We're practically neighbors and yet our busy schedules keep us apart. Let's plan a dinner soon!

With love, Mindi & Philip Stedman

Nikki, isn't it awesome when you and Chris can just have fun. And don't have a care in the world but just about each other.

The closet I-Hop around us is in Indiana so about 45 min. away :(

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby! They are a company out of Sweden and they make the most awesome Baby bottles.

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
