Weekends

Friday night is our favorite time of the week. The weekend is here and that means we get 2 full days together. Ever since Chris has started his new job where he doesn't have to work weekends anymore we set aside those 2 days for us and go off and do whatever we feel like doing. For the past couple weeks it has been hiking. We go all over Yorba Linda with no clue where we're at and always seem to find our way home....3 miles later. There was however no exploring this weekend, by foot anyway.
Yesterday we went to visit Pops. It was so good to see him, it had almost been a month! He is hanging in there and by that I mean I have no clue how he is really doing. It seems like there are so many things wrong with him and he doesn't even know half of them. It's really frustrating to be there with him and ask why his arm is 2x the size it should be and noone has even checked on it. I took him some sugar free snacks to try to cheer him up and to get some weight on him. It's not right that he weighs less than me!
Chris and I spent the rest of the day out in the front yard gardening. I planted a ton of flowers and dug up a bunch of old shrubs and weeds. It looks soo beauuuutiful out there now. Chris also re-did our water main and put on some new and improved valve thing that took all afternoon. Check out Riley, he watched Chris all afternoon out his window.. he was very upset that we left him inside.


Last night we went to a Valentines Dinner at church. It was such an awesome night. We got there an hour late but made it just in time for dinner! God has been so good to us....we are forever thankful for all He has done and is doing in our life.

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…
