6 Years! Wait What?!

It's very crazy to me to think that Ethan and I have been married for 6 years already. I literally remember the year before we got married and I thought "GOSH my wedding is NEVER going to get here"! And then BAM we were married, went on our honeymoon, and poof six years later we have two kids and two dogs!

Our story. For those of you who don't know Ethan or I, our story is quite simple. We met during church. I was six and he was about nine years old. We basically grew up together. We saw each other every Sunday. Our families were actually quite close as well! I have always had a crush on Ethan ever since we met (like every other girl in church). But nothing really came about until I was in high school and he started college. I was in 10th grade and he started coming over to our house like every weekend! I was excited about this but didn't want to make it a big deal and get my hopes up. I remember one day my best friend Rachel saying "I think Ethan likes Cort"! I was super surprised by this comment but also excited. Well that was short lived cause my two other friends in the room were like "NO way". Literally about two weeks later we started dating! 

After I graduated in '05 my parents and Ethan and I went to Florida for a graduation getaway! That is when he asked me to marry him. I was excited because that is what I always wanted. To be married young. I don't know why. I mean it's not for everyone. Not a lot of people or my friends understood why I wanted to be married young (18). I just simply said "I know he is the one I want to be with for the rest of my life, why should I wait"? So that next year about a month before I turned 19 we got married. May 26th, 2006. I am so glad we did. Don't get me wrong, I don't think marriage is a walk in the park. I would never want anyone to think that it is. It's something you have to work at everyday sometimes multiple times in a day. But it's worth it. I am thankful that I got to marry one of my best friends. 

Here is some pictures from our wedding day!

Easy Everyday Eyes

Hey guys! So this is my easy everyday eye makeup! Something I can throw on and just go!  I took pictures of the products I used so you can see them better! I show them in the video as well. 

For a Primer I used MAC's Paint Pot in Painterly

This is what it looks like, I just dip my finger in this and put it all over my lid.

Next I put on Bootycall from the Naked 2 Palette

 This is the all over the lid color.

For the crease I used MAC's Saddle

Like I say in the video, don't feel that you have to buy this eyeshadow to get this look. Any matte brown will work! :)

For my highlight color I use the MAC's White Frost

This is a beautiful white color. Also you can find any white for this look. 

For my eyeliner that I use everyday is Maybelline Master Precise! I LOVE this stuff, SUPER black and a great line! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this easy everyday look! Have a great weekend!!

Hair Dyed and The Avengers!

So we had a very exciting day today! My best friend Rachel and I got a much needed hair dye! Rachel is getting married in about 3 months or so! (WHAT). So we decided that we were gonna get her hair all dyed and then dye it one more time before her wedding! Our wonderful hairstylist is Casey!  Seriously guys check her out and like her Facebook Page! She is amazing! 

This is our finished product! I know it isn't the best picture but it's cute! :)  I did the Ombre hair again but this time I asked for lighter ends! I LOVE it!

After we got our hair done we were super excited cause Austin took us to The Avengers! And yes he said he was taking us. He even asked to pay but I figured I would. Austin has seen it already with Ethan but he LOVED it so much he wanted me to see it as well! 

On our way!


Date with the girls!

SO excited to see The Avengers!

We pointed to our favorite Avenger! Mine of course was Thor! Austin's was Hulk!


Bestie Ever!

His Spider Man Cup!

We all had such a great time! If you haven't seen The Avengers I highly recommend it! It was funny and didn't have much swearing. It was great! We all had a wonderful Tuesday! While Austin, Rachel and I were at the movie Ethan and Nevaeh got to go shopping for new earrings and get ice cream! Her new thing is to pull her earrings out! I don't know why! But we had to find new ones that clasp better!  But I hope you all had a great Tuesday I know we did!!

~Family Update~

Hey guys! So today I decided I was going to write a blog about what is going on in our lives at the moment! I haven't written a blog in awhile so I might be a little rusty at this! Forgive me.  :)

Ethan- Well since getting his new job in October he has been busy busy busy. He has traveled out of state 5-6 times since getting his new job. He has been trying to get into the groove of everything. He works as a surgical sales rep. So far he is liking it though which is great. Now that the weather is nicer he has been grilling and having more bon fires. 

Cort- I have been very blessed to be hanging out with my kids everyday. Don't get me wrong some days I would love to be working though. I am busy with my blog and videos that I have been putting up on YouTube. I am researching schools to be going to in the fall for dental hygiene school. It's something that I have always wanted to do and now that the kids are older I am excited to start. I will have to do some prerequisite classes first. Which is good for me to start and go to night school and such. I am VERY excited about this new season in my life. Also Ethan and I will be celebrating our 6 year anniversary on the 26th of this month! We can't believe we have been married for that long already! 

Austin- This little guy has been such a busy bee lately. He goes to school Tue/Thurs and LOVES going. He loves his friends he has made at school. His very best friend is Cole, he is such a great kid and I'm so glad Austin chose such a great friend! He also already has some girlfriends! (what!) He is a little ladies man. He also is in swimming lessons every Saturday. He is getting better and better at it. Soon he starts T-ball! He can't wait! He is getting good with practice from dad.

Neveah- Holy moly I just can't believe I am saying this but she is completely potty trained during the day! I could not believe how fast she was at learning it. One day she decided Yup I'm gonna be potty trained today"! I was amazed how easy it was for her! I'm so glad to be out of diapers! (even though we just got a full pack from Costco!) She is always a busy kid and very funny! We are currently redoing her room. (which I will be blogging about) We are excited to soon have her in a big girl bed! 

I am so very thankful for how healthy and happy my kids are. We thank God everyday for them and what a blessing they are to us! 
Thank you guys SO much for reading!

Austin and his best buddy Cole!

Products WORTH the Price! *Tips how to save money too*

Hey guys! So I did a video on products that I think are worth buying! I also give some tips on how to save money as well! 
Some tips...
1. Buy sample sizes first. If you don't want to spend the money because you don't know if you going to like the product, ask to see if they have a sample. 
2. Ask someone at the store to see if you can try it on your face. Whenever I am looking for a high end item I want to MAKE sure I will LOVE it. I mean it's your hard earned money. 
3. Research! This is something that I think is very important. If you really want something that is high end and spendy make sure it's worth it. Check ratings and check what other people are saying about the product. 
4. COUPONS!  I get coupons in the mail almost on a daily basis! Ulta, Target, Sephora all send out coupons! If you want something spendy make sure you look for some coupons.
5.,  You can find SO many things on this website and get it for a discounted price! Check it out and see.  

Thanks so much for reading/watching! If you guys have any tips as well let me know! I would love to hear them.
