Welcome to the all-new Suburban AF!

My husband, Jason, and I on the best day ever

Hi, I’m Lisa, and I’m so glad you’re here.  We may have just met but I feel like we’re a couple of old girlfriends.  You’re a wife living in the ‘burbs, most likely a former fun-loving city girl in your younger years, and now, quite surprisingly, loving and embracing the new lifestyle you find yourself leading.

You enjoy cooking and finding new, delicious recipes, so long as they’re not too insanely complex and don’t require you to purchase ingredients from Zanzibar that you can only buy online. You aspire to build an effortless, classic wardrobe that makes you look and feel amazeballs from season to season.  You strive to balance the demands on your time between family, friends, work, health, home and the pursuit of happiness.  And at the base of it all, you’re a modern woman who can laugh at the ridiculousness of life and keep it real.

Our mission at Suburban AF is first and foremost to make you laugh and secondarily to deliver useful, relevant content for the modern suburban woman to make life just a little bit easier and more fun.

My beautiful grandmother, Charlotte Becker, who passed on her passion for all things crafty to yours truly

Suburban AF started originally as Becker it Yourself, a space to share a love for DIYs inspired by my absolutely amazing late grandmother, Charlotte Becker.  While I (and my husband) have come to terms with the fact that DIYs will always be a part of my life, the aim of Suburban AF is to encompass all aspects of modern life – friends, family, home, food, fashion, fitness, health/beauty and the generally hilarious nature that accompanies life in the ‘burbs/life after 30.

So what can you expect to find on Suburban AF in the coming weeks and months?

  • 8 Delicious Popsicle Recipes You’ll Love (now live!)
  • 12 Binge-Worthy Streams to Watch Now (coming 7/23!)
  • Trying to Conceive in Memes – a hilarious look at what isn’t always a hilarious process (coming 7/30!)

I hope you will love reading Suburban A.F. as much as I enjoy writing and sharing it with you!
