I sit writing this with butterflies in my stomach! I am about to leave this morning on a plane to Belgium. I will be there 3 days, dancing my heart out at Tomorrowland and then 7 days spent in Spain. I'm excited to say the least. But also a tad nervous.
I hope you will still visit my blog every day since I have some AMAZING guest posts lined up for you. Up first is Tami, if you don't know her, she is awesome and a half. Funny, cute and entertaining.
Without further ado, let's get to it!


Hey there Helene's readers! (Isn't Helene amazing? Don't you secretly want to be her? No? Just me?) I'm Tami and I blog over at Friday Morning Buzz, and I'll be driving this crazy train today while Helene parties her face off across the pond.

Since many of you don't know me, I thought it would be a great time to introduce myself. Aka share a few weird confessions to help you decide if it is, in fact, a good idea to click on over to my blog. I confess…

…I have some serious blonde moments. 

Every so often I'll do something so dumb I have to smack myself in the forehead as punishment. Exhibit A: a couple weeks ago I read this article about a man who went into a coma from eating 413 of those ridiculously good cheddar biscuits from Red Lobster. Those biscuits are amazing. I totally get why he couldn't stop eating them. I proceeded to share the story on my professional Facebook page for work.

Cut to last week, when I learned the article was meant to be a joke, a la The Onion. Oopsies. I mean, it did say he had to have butter filtered out of his blood….

…I use french fries strictly as a vehicle for condiments. 

It's disgusting, really. Ketchup, mustard, mayo, remoulade, cocktail sauce, you name it. My french fries are soaking wet and my fingers are covered in a rainbow of dried sauces.

…The day before payday, my bank account is empty. 

Every. time. I'm nearly 26, have a stable career and pay all my bills on time. But if there's money in my account, it will be spent. Every last cent. It's to the point where I have a go-to list of things I can get for under $2. It includes tallboy Coors Lites, cookies from Fresh Market, and Wendy's lemonade.

Totally worth it.

 …I hate technology. 

I put off getting a smart phone until AT&T basically forced me to upgrade or pay more for a flip phone. I cringe every time a trendy new social media site emerges. I don't have Netflix, snapchat, an iPad or anything of the like, nor do I want to. Bring back carrier pigeons!

…I do some incriminating things when I'm alone in the car. 

Sing to the radio and dance like a wild woman? Duh. Shamelessly pick my nose? Totally. Pluck my eyebrows, floss my teeth, even change my clothes? Efficient use of time in the car, I'd say.

What are some of your embarrassing confessions? Are you more than ready for Helene to be back now?

Don't forget to drop by and say hi to Tami!
