Happy Halloween

Hate is a strong word but I really do hate halloween. I loved it the first 12 years of my life. What fat kid wouldn't? Dress up like a cow and get free candy. I so wish I could some how get my pictures of me being a cow, nurse, tigger and Lord knows what else I was and put them on here for your entertainment. Maybe that's why I hate halloween so much now. Anyways, I am a total scrooge when it comes to it and tonight we turned off our porch light and shut the blinds. Part of me felt really bad because there were some adorable kids walking around but I just want nothing to do with the stupid holiday. I kept peeking though and looking at all the little munchkins.
Instead of celebrating halloween, we celebrated our anniversary! Or tried to at least! I made a yummy steak dinner and pulled out our wedding cake. We had a nice candle lit dinner and thanked God for the door bell not ringing once! The cake...not so good. Tasted like freezer. Yuck! We were totally grossed out and instead of wedding cake we had a glass of egg nog. Not bad. Advice to those getting married and those newly married: eat your cake in the first 6 months!! We spent the rest of the evening playing games and talking about what this next year might have in store for us. Praying for a little one!!!
Hope you've all had a safe and happy day!

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…
