About Me

I am a 29 year old girl (and I say girl because I refuse to grow up!). I have a gigantic family (14 brothers and sisters OH MY). I am the proud owner of two adorable dogs named Joey (pit bull) and Ellie Mae (rotty mix).

I drive a black Toyota Matrix.

I travel a LOT. I've been around the United States and to Canada, Mexico, England, France, Italy and Greece.

By day I am an IT Consultant for a consulting firm. I am a systems designer and developer. In my free time, I volunteer a lot, most recently with a local Pit Bull advocacy group and rescue.

I absolutely love Steve Madden shoes, semi-precious gemstones, MAC cosmetics, and being silly.

I wish I had magical powers and I am OBSESSED with vampires.

No false advertising here. She certainly does love to gab! But gabbrgrl is also very generous of heart and extremely creative, so you'll love the swap goodies that she sends!
