So it's been a long, hot and productive weekend. I'm already over this weather and ready for it to cool down about 15 degrees! We got a ton done on the house yesterday...Chris tore out an ugly green shrub that was on the side of the house and planted a big beautiful queen palm, I planted more flowers (we are idiots for working outside in 106' weather), I did some touch up paint around the house, washed all the windows and screens in the house and then cleaned the house. I am a total clean freak and I realize that more and more each month. I can't stand a dirty house. Last night we did something totally out of the ordinary and went to dessert at 9:30pm. For some reason we have gotten in the habit of being back home by 10pm-we are like old people. We went to Melting Pot. Not huge fans of the dinners there but we got a cheese fondue to start and then had the most incredible dessert, it was milk chocolate with carmel...I made myself so sick over it. We dipped strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, brownies, pound cake, rice crispy treats, cherry's and cheesecake in it. We went home and went straight to bed to sleep off our chocolate coma. Such fun! We decided that we are going to start getting out a lot more often.
Pool time!

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…
