As young girls back in Missouri, we talked for hours about the things we would do together when we got older: starting a wedding business or a collective flower shop, and having regular play dates with all of our kids. As we got older, we realized that it would be hard to run a business together as we began to spread out across the country. That’s when we decided we needed something we could start together no matter where we lived–a blog–and This Blue Dress was born.
So what’s so special about a blue dress that we’d name a blog after it?
In our parent’s garage, there is a large clothing rack with more than twenty beautiful, formal dresses that we sisters have worn for various events over the years. In the midst of the organza and tulle, there is a certain blue dress. Our oldest sister Maegan chose this gorgeous blue dress for a much-anticipated Junior prom. A few years later, Mariah decided to wear it to one of her formal dances. And so it went; the dress would be donned for a night of dancing and fun and then stored for a few years until the next sister in line was ready to wear it.
There are enough years between all of us that we didn’t share everything, but one of the things that spanned our age gap and connected us was this blue dress. We are super excited to have another thing that connects us all now: this blog!
We hope you find something here that will uplift, inspire, and excite you.
I’m a homeschooling mom married to my sweetheart Joey. We have four awesome children with a baby girl due in November. I enjoy writing about all things “mom”–family fun, product reviews, date ideas, recipes, homemaking/DIY, and spiritual thoughts.
It’s all glitter and giggles in my Nashville home, as I am a mom to two spunky little girls. In between finishing my degree and hanging out with my family, I love to hike, travel, quill, and eat ridiculous amounts of ice cream. I enjoy writing about family and seasonal activities, food, and party ideas.
I’m from Texas with sass the size of the state. I’m a stay at home mom, with 3 wonderful kids. I like to write about lots of things, food, organizing, food, hobbies, food, reviews and food. 😉
I’m a BYU grad that has laughably bad luck in life. I spend a lot of time working out so I can eat exhorbatent amounts of mac and cheese and ice cream. A Marketing Specialist at Security Weaver and a rep for ZYIA Activewear, I’m also working on a Masters degree! I like to write about food, books, fitness, and reviews.
I’m a nursing student at BYU, so I’m the one that tends to geek out over how amazing the human body is! Half of my heart is in Argentina, where I spent 18 months as a missionary. I have an unhealthy amount of luck and I’m dating the boy that I’ve had a crush on for forever! I love to write stories and share products that I actually use and love.
I’m the baby sister! I am in my third year of college, studying to be a personal financial planner. I’m a UVU Wolverine at heart but married to a MU Tiger. I love to write lists for the blog – top ten lists, 7 things you need before this, 13 things you need for that, checklists for weddings, and more!
