About Me

Hey there, I’m Gabrielle (pronounced Gay-bri-elle). Welcome to The Gabe Fix! 

In August 2011, I married the love of my life and moved from a big city to a small country town In-The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Tennessee. With a Maltese/Shih-Tzu that stares out the window all day and a husband who works a 9-5, I figured starting this blog would be the perfect way to keep myself busy. I guess you could say it’s my “baby”. 

Here you will get a glimpse of life through my eyes. I love to shop, paint my nails and play dress up in my closet. I buy more books than I can read, live on a diet, have a new found love for cooking and I also make Youtube videos in my spare time. This blog is dedicated to sharing all the pieces of me. Hope you enjoy!  

Thanks for stopping by…don’t be a stranger 😉

    Hello, I have been natural for a year and a few weeks now, and I have been searching youtube videos to get style advise and product advise ( have tried the twist out twice, both times were faliures), but will continue to try and hopefully, fine the right product for my hair type ( which accord to the hair chart is a 4b/4c), anywho, I came across your dry hair braidout that I am going to try, and for whatever reason, I ended up clicking on some of your others. I have enjoyed them all, especially, the one titled "Him Loves Me" were your husband is helping taking out the weave, beautiful display of love, from you both, I also like the fussy Christmas, Chad was hilarious.. And he is very attractive, just seem to be a real good genuine person, you both have great chemistry together, beautiful family, and wish you both all the best, much peach, love and blessing.. And congratulations on pregancy, children are a gift of love from God..

    Talk about the power of human connection! "WOW"! You guys did it! I can't express to you two enough, how much I've enjoyed your video's. So why were they a joy to me??? Well, you freely showed what love could really be like when you open up to one another.(most will not) It is one of the gifts that GOD gave to us, which is no longer understand, but it's worth more than anything in this world. That's why he died for us, how much love is that!!!

    Then here come little Chad, again "WOW"! "WOW"! "WOW"! He is so beautiful! Someone posted the words mini Chad. Yep' you got a little Chad. Get ready for more spontaneous humor Gabrielle. anyway think you so much!!! Can't wait for your next post!!! Of course take the time to heal from your surgery!

    Simply Beautiful.

    I've been watching you too over on youtube for awhile and thought I'd check out your blog.
    Then I saw the wedding video link (I had NO business clicking play). Watching Chad hold back tears as you came down those steps nearly killed me. SO SWEET.
    You to are a phenomenal couple and I wish you nothing but joy and happiness.

    P.SCJ is the cutest lil dumplin!

  28. December 15, 2013 / 05:36

    I subscribed to your Youtube channel because you guys represent what I admire in a couple. A loving couple. I adore your entire family because it's very normal. You can't find normal on your telebision screen, lol.
    Anyway, thank you for sharing parts of your life with us because I couldn't do it without putting everyone to sleep or by boring them to tears. You guys rock.

  29. January 7, 2014 / 23:40

Anyway, just wanted to say hey, and love you, Chad, and all your fam bam. Take care girl, your new friend, Lisa

    I found your youtube channel by accident and it is funny, warm and little ChadJr is so precious. I subscribed and I love watching the videos, your family are hilarious and Oscar is a cute dog. Love the vlogging, keep up the great videos, your British accents made me laugh in one video, because I am from England. You are a wonderful family.

    Ok so this morning around 5am purely by accident (or what I know call divine connection) I came across your couch conversations video (couldn't sleep or workout had a bad headache so was listening to music on YT and hit your video)……….anyway it hits 7:30am – have watched 5 of your videos, I am now late for work and loving it lol lol got ready in record time to catch 8:31am train and watch another video (our story and proposal) on the train journey…..wanted to take the train back home just so I could watch another one of your videos 🙂 have added you on IG (couple page and individuals), FB, subscribed to YT and now reading your blog, suffice to say I am hooked. You guys are so REAL, just you, no airs no graces but you are beautiful, your relationship to onlookers is awesome and how you relate to each other and Chad Jr was wonderful to see……..I know you don't mess though Gaby cos I saw that hand clap you gave your dog when he is barking over your voices lol…….love you guys, you have a fan in me, so glad I don't work out Monday nights, I will be running home to watch more.

    Someone mentioned about your natural videos, I haven't seen any yet, I am a natural of almost 5 years now and so I look forward to watching your journey, which I had a sequence order of your videos so I can watch from beginning to now and then keep going…..

    someone commented above about you being on TV……i would definitely watch as well……..your Vlogs are definitely not boring, don't say that, you guys are funny and lovely.

    God help me but this day is gonna drag lol lol

    Hello Gabrielle,

    I am not at all sure how I came across your channel but feel totally happy and blessed that I did. I have fallen in love with you and your family! So beautiful to see a couple so much in love with the best chemistry I have seen on YouTube. I am Christian and natural and date outside of my race so I can relate on so many levels. You guys are in my prayers and I want the best for you. I hope your newest, yet to be revealed venture will bring you even closer to God and His will for you.

    Be blessed!

    I enjoy watching your YouTube channel. I believe you guys are inspirational and I'm sure you guys get silly people writing back comments but I don't see color when I am watching your YouTube channel and that's a good thing. I was talking to my husband the other day and I was like maybe we should do something like that but you guys are pros. Keep up the awesome work Gabe&Babe and lil Ceej.
