mom and me

Today was awesome. I spent the day with mom...we went to the Brea mall and once we got there we decided we weren't in the mood to shop. It was way too hot! We went to Babies R Us and had a blast shopping for an up-coming baby shower.(No, it's not for me!) After our shopping spree we went over to some new model homes by us in Yorba Linda that were so beautiful! Chris and I went to see them on Saturday and I had to take mom because she loves them like I do. Got some great ideas! Then we found this neighborhood that was the most beautiful neighborhood we have ever seen! It was incredible and I wish we had had a video camera in the car with us. It was hilarious-our jaws were down the whole time and every two seconds we were yelling "oh my gosh, look at this one!" It really was ridiculous, just too bad we don't have an extra 3,000,000 laying around. Dang it.
Tonight we went to mom and dads for dinner, it had been a while since we were there. It's always a blast, we had chicken and beer and then took a hot tub. Family is the best and we are so blessed.

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..

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…
