good times..

We have had the best weekend up in Arrowhead with my family. Chris, Riley and I arrived at the house around 8pm last night and pretty much crashed into bed. Riley was the best little passenger....not a peep! Well once but that's when we went through KFC and got us some fried chicken.
We slept in until 8am which is amazing for us! Chris and I headed off to the Arrowhead village in search of a barber because he was long over due for a hair cut. There are apparently no barbers up here but we managed to find a salon. Ha! I thought Chris was going to die when we walked in and asked to get his hair cut....$30 later he looks amazing! (He's used to paying $7) Mom and dad met us up at the Village and spent a couple hours shopping....we all left with some great buys! We also went to the best bakery in town! I am obsessed with the cinnamon rolls...as you can see Chris and I were fighting over who got the frosting!! We went back to our cabin and the boys smoked cigars (they tried last night and had to cut it short due to the 30 degree weather) and mom and I took Riley outside to play in the snow. I'll post some pics.
Megan and Flo (aka Melissa Samsvick) goofed off all day in the snow while mom and I tried to beat dad and Chris at Sequence but failed miserably. Man, I hate losing at games! We all went to an awesome Mexican restaurant back at the village and had another memorable time there. I will not go into detail but it was awesome :)
Here we are, it's 9:20pm and we're all in jammies...Chris and I just got our butts kicked at Skip-Bo by mom and dad....I think it's time to call it a day. I've been running up and down the 3 flights of stairs here trying to find internet to write this dang blog. I'm out of breath and out of shape...oh yes, it's been a wonderful day and we are looking forward to tomorrow. Enjoy some of our pics.
I would have posted more except my camera battery died..dang!
Lots of love!



My snow baby....

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!

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…
