The Liebster Award is an award that is given out to new bloggers in the blogging community! I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Cook With a Shoe – thanks Charissa!
How did you decide on the name of your blog? My whole life changed for the better once I incorporated a budget into my life. I really believe having a budget has improved my life for the better. Hence, Believe in a Budget was formed!
Where does your blogging inspiration come from? I was really motivated to start my blog after having read other personal finance blogs. I really connected to what others were writing!
What is it that you love most about blogging? I love being able to write freely and connect with other bloggers. I enjoy when readers leave comments.
What is your favorite food? Oh gosh, what don't I love?! It's cliche, but I love a good pizza. And birthday cake from Publix ( a grocery store in the South)
What is your favorite thing to drink (alcoholic or not)? My favorite alcoholic drink would be a glass of bubbly or a craft beer. I'm obsessed with sparkling water too. In an effort to save money, I received a Soda Stream for my birthday so I would stop buying so much Perrier!
What is an item you cannot live without? I definitely can't live without my cell phone. It's my main method for keeping in touch with family and friends, whether it be talking, texting, facetime or social media.
What are eleven random facts about yourself?
- I worked at Disney World when I was in college
- I also waitressed and worked at a pre-school in college

- I love the Royal Family

- When I was in high school, I did a lot of babysitting and saved $10,000 before I was 17
- Haunted houses scare the crap out of me
- My dogs dress up for Halloween every year
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Closer to family – it's hard being on my own.
If you could meet anyone from history, alive or dead, who would it be? My Gramma – I miss her.
What is your favorite outdoor activity? I love going to the beach or lake with my dogs. I love water and find it very peaceful.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Putting down roots! I'm working hard to make this happen. Family life sounds pretty perfect.
