Hello! We are Melanie (red hair) and Courtney (poop brown hair, yep that’s right, I said the word poop) and we are so excited to be starting this blog of ours! Both of us have been blogging for a while, but decided to do it in sister style.
Hello, I’m Courtney and I’m the second oldest of four kids and am the only brunette child in the family. All three of my siblings have Ariel red hair. Growing up I would sometimes feel jealous because complete strangers would come up to our family and tell my parents what beautiful red headed children and wouldn’t say anything to me I know pity me.
As a young child my parents would describe me as a “loose canon on a ship.” This explains my high energy, outgoing, and very determined personality. I’ve lived in Utah all of my life and currently live in suburbia of Salt Lake City with my husband McKay and my baby Amelia. She is my love and joy in life and is a xerox copy of her daddy.
Melanie and I have been really close all of our lives. I do remember hating her for a short period of time when we were young, because I didn’t like it how she would get mad at me for stealing her clothes. When we were in college, we lived in the same town and had a lot of good times like scooter rides to J-Dawgs, BBQ’s at the house next door, shopping, hanging out, and talking about our wishes and dreams. We even worked at the same company together where I would prank call her a lot and loved taking longer than usual restroom breaks with her.
We were raised by parents who taught us to work hard and make something out of ourselves. I remember having a job at the age of 12 with my sisters where we delivered the newspaper everyday for FIVE years, thanks to my parents persistence! I used to drive a little goped with my newspapers wrapped around my body and did this in the sleet and snow. So all of my life I felt like I needed to contribute to society in some way. When I had Amelia I thought I was making the hardest decision in my life by leaving my good job to stay home with my baby. I knew all of my life I wanted to be a SAHM but when it was time to do it, it was a lot harder. Fast forward to now and its been greatest blessing in my life. I’m finally doing what I love to do being a homemaker, surrounding my life with beauty, and inspiring others!
