HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

to the best mom in the whole entire world!!! I'm not going to say how old she is but she's definitely not 50 yet! :) Yesterday we did lots of celebrating....she went to lunch with her office and I tagged along since her boss loves me and invited me. We went to Zov's and had an amazing lunch and dessert. Chris and I met up with mom, dad and meg for dinner at Wood Ranch. That is definitely a family favorite. I'm sad to say that the pics we took are not blogable. They would all kill me and have this blog shut down if I put them up here so I'm sorry you too aren't able to see what I had to put up with all night.
Everyone came back to our house after dinner for cake and games (the guys ditched us to smoke cigars.) They're rude like that. I worked so hard on the cake I made for mom and it just didn't turn out very pretty. It is a German chocolate cake filled with carmel and toffee. Sounds good huh? It was, I loved it and still have a ton left...but I will never make it again because my family named it the "hoo cake". You know like the hooos in hoo-ville. If that is not the biggest dis ever!
We had a great time celebrating and one day when I need revenge against mom I will post the most hilarious video ever. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! We love you!

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…
