The New Kid on the Blog
Hello!!! Welcome to another one of my new adventures....blogging. I know you are probably thinking...great just another blogger. Honestly...I have no clue what I am doing in regards to blogging, but why not try a new adventure at my age (36....no shame). I wanted to introduce myself and let you all know what my hopes are for this blog.
First of all, my name is Andrea. I am a former middle school teacher turned pediatric nurse (that is a whole blog in itself) that decided to follow one of my other other dreams a year ago and begin an online children's boutique called The Lil Magnolia. We offer clothing for infants to tweens (boys and girls). My husband Tony and I have a 2 year old lil boy whom keeps us on our toes, smiling, and so much more. We decided we would like add to our entourage and to our SURPRISE we are having TWINS...wish they would have captured that first ultrasound on video....and they are GIRLS!! Needless to say it took awhile for the initial shock to wear off and I still don't think that I have fully grasped that there are two lil ones growing in this ever expanding belly.
As I mentioned I am new to this whole world of blogging and I know there are a ton out there. I have several fave bloggers that I follow and as I scroll through their blogs, instagram posts, etc....it inspires me. So, I started to make a lists of things that I want to bring to this blog while always striving to just BE REAL! Am I the only one that looks at a majority of Instagram posts and thinks how many shots it took to get that perfect picture with the perfect outfit, the perfect hair, the perfect lighting, and the perfect set up? So, the first thing I want to bring to this blog is that "not so perfect"
picture (because as I pregnant, working momma of a 2 year old things are not always perfect and I am not a professional photographer). Next, I want to bring to you topics of every day life as a pregnant, working momma of a 2 year old and soon to be twins! I hope to cover topics such as twin pregnancy vs single, breast feeding (especially as a working momma), maternity fashion, toddler life, and more. Plus, I will most definitely put some plugs in about my online children's boutique called The Lil Magnolia (did I mention we have free shipping)!
So excited to be the new kid on the blog! I hope that you will continue to follow this new adventure with me...feel free to tell all of your family and friends to follow as well!! Just remember, I am new at this and it will be a learning process. THANK YOU so much for joining me and hope you visit again soon!
