So you think you can dance

Whew! I think I have finally recovered from our little adventure in LA. Thursday was a looong day. We woke up and were at the CBS studios by 8:30am and got right in. Megan and Melissa were talking with the guy who works for the show and somehow talked him into giving us spots on the risers. We got our special wristbands and got to go in first. We had really good spots on the risers for the first taping. We were right above the judges which was fun. We had a couple hours in between taping so we went back to the Grove for a little shopping and some lunch. Went to Farmers Market which is so fun. We went back for the final taping, had to get there at 4pm and the taping didn't start until 6pm. It was live for back east. Megan and Melissa had the best spots on the risers and Cat Deely (the host) came up and stood next to them for a little bit. They got their cute little faces on TV. It was such a fun little adventure but oh so exhausting! I don't know how those dancers do it. Sounds terrible to me. I wish I had more pictures but they didn't allow cameras, phones, purses etc into the studio.

We loved this couch

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…
