Ready To Party???

Pin It

I stumbled upon an awesome party that is going on this week only, thanks to Jen at Tatertots & Jello, !

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

The party is like a huge mixer for bloggers.  Sounds like fun!  I’m in!

Well, I’m Sabby, or Sabrina, a stay at home mom to two fully charged boys living in the burbs of Chicago.  My husband is one of the most patient guys I know and puts up with my constant need to create and learn something new…despite the messes it sometimes creates!IMG_5818-2

After finding (and using) so many wonderful ideas on blogs, I decided to start my own last fall.  It has been a wonderful trip so far.  I love making new friends and exchanging ideas with so many other talented ladies out there.

So what’s Sabby In Suburbia all about??  Well, being a SAHM is a far departure from my previous career in the biotech world.  I’ve poured my creativeness into the things that surround me:  our boys, our home, my camera and filling everyone’s tummy’s in between.

Powerpoint is my friend and I use it to make frugal artwork.

I also enjoy making furniture brand new with paint.

Get In My Belly

My other passion is cooking.  My mom is an excellent cook and I feel like I’m finally catching up to her. Run, Mamaw, Run!

Capturing The Moments

I have fallen hard for photography.  It was something I’ve always had an interest in, but never had time to pursue.

Now, I have these wonderful little subjects always at the ready for me to practice my skills on! IMG_4160


So that’s a little bit about me!  Hope to meet many of you through UBP in the upcoming days.  Thanks for visiting!
