straggler.

Sorry, I have been terrible about blogging lately. We have had something going every night and by the time we get home I'm too hot and tired.
A recap of last week:
We had a meeting on Monday and Tuesday night, went to Bible study on Wednesday, Thursday I was in Long Beach for a meeting regarding the PINC ministry, Friday we had a little date night at home (smoked bbq ribs mac & cheese & peaches-Welcome Summe 2008). Yesterday we went to a good family friends house for a surprise party which was a blast! Last night we went to our Truth Project Bible study which we love! Today I got up at the crack of dawn to send 22 high school students off to Hume Lake for the week. It was so bitter sweet for me. I love that place, it's a very special place to me. It is my sisters first time going and I am soo excited for her! God is going to rock her world this week and I can't wait to hear all about it! Part of me wishes I was up there with them, it's so amazing. Church was so awesome today. It was so good to have Bob Kraining back. His message was all on being a servant and it was what we all needed to hear. Like I've said in previous blogs, put yourself aside...all your wants, your desires, your needs and cares and focus them on other people. Serve people! Love them like you want to be loved! It was so refreshing this morning and made my heart so happy!
Seriously, I am about to pass out on this laptop. I'm beat so I will update more later in the week with job status on my man!

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…
