chaos.

It is getting harder and harder for me to wake up in the morning. Today it was 5am when I heard something at the bedroom door, I about have a heart attack every morning when a knocking/scratching sound is pouncing at the door. Nala is a very needy girl at she lets you know when she is ready to eat and have her morning milk. (Nala is a cat!) Just as I'm about to get up to stop the non-sense, Lily (the big golden retriever) will come and lay right on top of me and fall asleep. I'm not too used to all of this yet but we're getting there.
I went up to work for a little bit today and got everything done for the week in just a couple of hours. I am so thankful for my job. It is amazing and I am loving it so much more now! I could not ask for more. Chris and I met at our house for lunch which is what we normally do everyday so that was fun. I went to visit my Riley cat at mom and dads this afternoon for like 7 minutes before heading off to an appointment but it was a great 7 minutes. I miss that little guy so much! He misses me too, as soon as I left mom said he was freaking out (that means meowing a lot).
We are having an absolute blast down here, I could pretty much move in and not miss our house at all, in fact I'm going to ask Kathleen if she wouldn't mind switching houses and leaving Lily here with us.
Tonight we went to grandma and grandpas for dinner. They are just down the street from us which is so awesome! Grandma made one of my favorite dinners of all time-hamburger pattys. MMM, it was so delicious! We also played team Skip Bo, girls against guys. Grandma and I creamed the guys the first game and then they got us, we're going back over on Thursday night for dinner and games again for the championship so stay tuned! I love grandparents, I am so thankful for the family that God has blessed me with and my new family with the Andrews. They are the best.
Ok, I'm exhausted and Lord knows that 5am will be here before we know it.

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…
