Now I'll let you chat with Andrea:
Tell me a bit about your family...
Love to! I have been married for 14 years to my sweet and very adorable hubby Jeff. We have two boys. Jaden is 9 and already knows what he wants to be. An artist and professional skateboarder. He is always using his God given talents to paint and create beautiful works of art. Noah is 7 and is my little cuddle bug. He is fascinated by all living things! He is constantly catching weird bugs and tells me that he wants to have a house full of animals and creatures to take care of. Apparently we got his name right!
Why did you decide to create B.Y.O.G.?
I wore the ugly, blue hospital gown when I had my babies. I felt very exposed, uncomfortable and unattractive in it. Come to find out, I was not alone.
B.Y.O.G. came about in a dream. I literally went to bed one night and had a vivid dream about it! I saw the name, packaging and myself being interviewed on a television show...Oprah?? Ha Ha! I woke up in the middle of the night and wrote everything that I could remember about the dream down on paper. It felt like a fire was ignited in me. Over the next several months I began working on the first design and setting up the structure for the business, knowing the whole time that I did not have money to actually make this happen...God worked that one out! I can't emphasize this enough! I had a dream. I had no money or experience. I remained faithful even during the worst of circumstances and kept going one step at a time. Don't give up your dream!!! God is so faithful! You will meet obstacles, plow through, anticipate the next one and continue on with grace.
Who are some of the celebs who have worn B.Y.O.G.?
Past celebs include Gwen Stefani (this was an unforgettable moment.) Tori Spelling, Jessica Alba and Alison Sweeney from Days of Our Lives. I recently received an order from Sarah Michelle Gellar.
What are three must have items soon-to-be-moms should bring to the
hospital? (besides a B.Y.O.G., of course)
1. Non-slip socks.
2. Tennis balls to massage your back during "back labor."
3. Lip balm
