It was a great week at the Andrews abode. We accomplished a ton! As far as the nursery goes, there was progress! All of the molding in the room was painted along with the doors and the walls are now pink! It's pretty darn cute. Crown molding got postponed until Monday morning which threw off our plans but it's ok. The plantation shutters have been ordered and all of the bedding arrives next week! You could say that we're pretty excited. I can hardly wait to put all the furniture in next week! (Check Kate's blog for pics and updates on her room!- if you need the link, email me!)The days seem to be flying by and we know that our little pumpkin will be in our arms before we know it. 3.5 more months!! Yesterday was the day that our first baby girl was due. It was bittersweet. Bitter because the loss of her was so hard to go through and knowing that she would be in ours arms now hurts but it was so so sweet because her sister is growing so big and strong inside me. The Lord's timing is perfect and that holds true in this case. The arrival of our Kate could not be more perfect. We are thankful! We are counting our blessings each and every day. Thank you to all of you who have been so sweet to call, email, etc. us with your sweet words of encouragement and joy for us. It means so much, thank you! We're looking forward to a nice and quiet weekend....can't wait to celebrate our dads and the new daddy to be! :)

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…
