Welcome to Mama Chic and her interns

Welcome to the Mama Chic and her interns blog. This blog will give a behind the scenes look into the world of being a #boutiqueboss while also being a #momboss. A little bit about me, Krista Vanderveren. I am co-owner of Chic Avenue Boutique with my sister Jillian. We started Chic Avenue in July of 2015. Chic Avenue launched the week I found out I was pregnant for the second time. Fast forward a few weeks and we were slowly growing out boutique. I found out I was expecting twins. Yes, twins! So not only did I have a new business and a newly two-year-old. I was going to be adding two more babies to our family. The last 3 1/2 years have been a whirlwind of boutique business, raising babies and building our empire. Through it all I have had amazing support from my husband Brad, my sister Jillian, our parents Scott & Pam and our entire Chic Community. Without all of you we would not be here today.

Through this blog, I plan to share the adventures of owning a small business owner and being a mother. I will share about Chic Avenue Boutique. My favorite products for my family. And give you a glimpse of what life with a 5 year old and two almost 3 year olds, we affectionately call them the Interns or Twinterns. Because you can't pay for that kind of help.

I can't wait to dive in and share with you all.

#StayChic

After reading Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis last Summer, I continued to explore Rachel and her mission. She is an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, blogger, and mom. She has done a lot in her career while raising a family and in seeing her achieve goals, I know it is possible to keep pushing myself to be at the level I want to be at with Chic Avenue Boutique. We are almost 4 years in and we have found our Tribe.

 My favorite quote from Girl, Stop Apologizing is "The goal isn't to have a balanced life, the goal is to have a centered life." Now stop and think about that. 
I always see questions posted on social media on how to do it all. How do you work full time? How do you run your home when…

From the moment you heard the words “You are having twins (triplets, quads)!” You instantly joined this secret society of mothers of multiples. You were immediately put in a different category of motherhood. Your pregnancy will be different and be closely monitored, you are told to expect an early arrival, you are preparing for two or more babies to come home. Your friends and family are there for you, but they don’t get it like other moms of multiples do.
Joining the local mother’s of multiples club was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I found a group of women who were going through life like me. All these women are raising m…
