My week = pure bliss...

This has been such a great and exciting week. Monday, the crown molding was installed (it's so big, I love it!). Tuesday, my dad came up and painted the crown and touched up the room. He and Chris also brought the changing table/dresser and hutch in the nursery along with the glider. Wednesday, Chris built the crib and my parents brought up the bedding. Her room is almost complete. There are still a handful of details that need to be done but we're getting there! I am thrilled with how it is coming along. I walk by her room and my heart melts. It's my new favorite room in the house. I sat in the glider all last night just staring at the room and dreaming of the day that she will be in there. I ate breakfast in there this morning. It's pathetic really but I am just so happy. It's all becoming so real now. I honestly can't even think about holding her because I get way too excited and antsy. My new favorite hobby is shopping for the peanut. She officially has the cutest wardrobe I have ever seen! She is so loved already. Her closet is my second favorite place in the house. So fun. Our house feels complete now as I walk by all the rooms. Kate has already blessed our life so much and we are counting down the days until we get to meet her!! I'll be posting pics on her blog soon so stay turned!

Nikki, I can't believe I'm going to admit this, but I totally did the same thing! I used to go sit in kaylie's room all the time & just sit and pray for her....I loved that time!!! Enjoy it, she will be here before you know it!

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…
