About Me

My name is Danielle. I have been called many things in life, spoiled boujee, high maintenance, etc. However, I have to live a budget friendly life now that I am married, but I still want to be as Boujee as I can be, but I am doing it on budget. This blog isn’t all about money saying Boujee tips (there will be some of that). However, this blog is all about me and my Boujee on a Budget life.

My dad also passed down to me the importance of good Music. I share his taste in music (for the most part). He brought me up on the likes of the Beatles, Classic Rock, Southern Rock, and of course Tom Petty. Seeing Tom Petty live with my dad was a Spiritual experience.

Music has always been my first love, then the written word. My mom made sure that I grew up to love reading. I love to read. I am a fan of the classics, but I also enjoy a good beach read from time to time. My favorite author is F. Scott Fitzgerald.  My favorite book is the Great Gatsby.  I love a tragic hero and Fitzgerald’s style of writing.

I am a wife to an amazing, supportive, and loving husband. I met Andrew in high school.  He didn’t know I liked him then. I guess it is a good thing. We both needed to have our separate experiences. I like to think we bring out the best in each other. We are both very supportive of one another’s individual goals and dreams. We are both complicated individuals at times, and sometimes see the world differently, but we agree on the things that matter. We both are crazy about one another, and truly do love each other. We are both Pitt Panther fans. He may have converted me and made me a Pitt Panther fan.  We both work at the University of Pittsburgh. We work in different departments and have different jobs. I also attend Grad School at the University of Pittsburgh. I am working towards a Masters degree in Higher Education Management. I would like to do something  within Student Services eventually. Andrew is my biggest cheerleader. He is front and center with me on this journey. It will be a bit of a long journey compared to the people, who are able to go full time, but I am going to try my best. I have always wanted a Masters Degree in something. I have always wanted to go back to school. I am so thankful for Andrew, and the University of Pittsburgh for giving me the opportunity!

I have two beautiful dogs. Paris and Louie. We rescued them from a shelter. They are the sweetest babies. Both have very different personalities, but I am in love with them both.
