re-cap

It's been a fun past couple of days. Chris and I had two date nights last week which was awesome! We went to a couple of our favorites, Shiki and Wood Ranch. Mmmm! Thursday night we had dinner at his parents house and they had his high school pastor over and his family. They are such great people, it was such a joy to meet them and spend some time with them. Last night we went to grandma and grandpas house for dinner, it was a spur of the moment thing and it worked out so well. We had been missing them so it was great to get down there and spend some time with them and hear more of grandpas stories. I didn't get to video any of them this time, I was too into them. The best part was them telling us how they like to flirt with other people. Grandpa said he has ladies that flirt with him all the time but he doesn't flirt back, he just looks. Grandma loves to flirt and apparently has the men all over her- I believe it! They are too funny! I guess when you have been married for 58 years you can do that.
Both Chris and I worked today. He is at his parents house installing TVs and I worked two weddings at church. The first wedding this morning was interesting and I was put to work right away when the brides dress split. The zipper busted and she was hanging out! So glad I learned to sew a few years back (thanks aunt Jamie!). We sewed and pinned her in as best as we could and sent her on down that isle! I love weddings- they are so much work but so fun to watch.
My kiddos are home from Hume! I got to see them as they arrived today! Sounds like they had a blast, I'm on my way to meet my husband and my family for a nice dinner and to hear all the camp stories...
Ciao!

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…
