save the animals!

Let me start this off by saying that...

#1. I am an animal wacko
#2. I will bring my car to a stop if I see a loose dog roaming the streets to find its home
#3. I don't put up with people who abuse or mistreat animals

I am an animal nut that is for sure but I am proud of it. I'm am no where near a vegetarian but I do have a huge place in my heart for furry things. Today I was watching Oprah and what I saw disgusted me and brought me to tears. (I'm not a big fan of Oprah, but I do love some of the things she does.) It was on puppy mills and the horrible abuse that goes on there to the momma dogs. They then showed the pound and all of the animals there and explained that the dogs/cats have 5 days to find an owner before they are put down. It made me nuts watching it, there were soo many precious puppy dogs in there and I watched them be put to sleep!! The sweetest dogs who walked in the room wagging their tail and seemed like awesome family dogs were killed.

Oprah featured this awesome foundation that's in LA called the "Lange Foundation". It is a non-killing shelter for animals who are either found on the street or are rescued from the pound. Every time someone "sponsors" a pet, the foundation goes down to the pound to rescue an animal that is about to be put down in the sponsors name. It's amazing. I so wish I could be involved somehow. My dream as a little girl always was to open up an animal rescue one day. I went online and sponsored an animal, they are going to be sending a picture to me of the sweet one that I saved. I can't wait!!!

If it is on your heart to save a dog or cat from the pound and you are like me and can't have one more animal in your house then PLEASE go to...... www.langefoundation.com
They are awesome people with great hearts and their foundation runs off of donations alone.

Thanks :)

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…
