Moving away from my hometown means I'm already getting extremely nostalgic. "When will I see this tree again?" "This is our 3rd to last walk in this park." Those are direct quotes from my mouth this morning. I'm a homebody and I am already missing parts of my life I haven't left yet. In an effort to make sure I'm not leaving anything behind, I made a "Dallas Bucket List". Things I HAVE to do … [Read more...] about The Dallas Bucket List
As I was checking my blog's Facebook page I noticed I was tagged in a picture. Odd, since this was my page, not my personal profile. I crossed my fingers it didn't have anything to do with the meme that won't go away.

While the list is fantastic, it prompted me to come up with a list of my own. … [Read more...] about Helene’s Best of Dallas
When someone asks your age, it can be a bit off putting. I never thought I would come to that conclusion, but it offends me. Especially when the emphasis is on the world "old" and "are."

The day after Christmas was a calm, quiet day. That was, until Michael and I headed to the Dallas Convention Center for the biggest music event in Dallas; Lights All Night. On Saturday we woke up, ate breakfast, and decided to just get back in bed. We woke up and went back to the rave- it was literally eat, sleep, rave, repeat. Just like I like it.
