Fathers Day 2009

Father's Day was exciting this year! It was so fun to celebrate our dads who we love dearly and also got to celebrate Chris! My poor husband was sick all weekend and wasn't feeling too hot on Father's Day but we made the best of it. We started our morning out at church which was great and then spent the afternoon at my parents house. Had a great lunch, laid by the pool and swam, had a yummy BBQ dinner and celebrated with some fun gifts. My family is all about celebrating and presents. All the men were spoiled, they are the best. Chris raked in the gifts...My parents got him all sorts of cute bibs and onzies (or should I say, got Kate all sorts of gifts!) and cigars (those are for dad!) and I surprised him with the most adorable "toy". We found it at FAO Schwartz when we were in Vegas a couple months ago and Chris fell in love with it. We didn't get it because it was a little pricey and to make a long story short I had a friend pick it up for me when they went to Vegas and it was a great surprise yesterday. It melts my heart how much he loves this thing. It's a Noah's Ark plush toy for Kate. So cute. Only the best for my man and baby! We spent the evening at the Andrews house to celebrate dad Andrews and had yummy desserts. It was such a great day! We are so thankful for the dads that the Lord has blessed us with. They are the best of the best and such great role models. Chris is going to be an amazing father, he can hardly wait to hold his peanut. We're counting down the days!

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…
