In case I haven't mentioned it 468 times before, I'm a full blown Dallasite — born here, raised here, and currently reside in Dallas. I love it. There is always something to do, new places to try, and business is booming. Each year D Magazine comes out with a list of the best things to do, eat, and experience in Dallas. 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
I've wanted to write a "bucket list" for a long time. It's a fantastic idea, but every time I started I always stopped, worried I wouldn't be able to accomplish the list. Today Michael and I are packing up both dogs and driving 11 hours to visit my brother-in-law in Pensacola, Florida. I've always wanted to bring dogs to the beach.

I'm not sure any other country would have the same … [Read more...] about We’re So Cocky
I hope you're spending the most out of this 3 day weekend! But I'm not going to lie to you. This post may look a little but familiar. I posted this July 4th (my secnd favorite holiday) last year, but thought it was appropriate to bring up some patriotic odes again. These songs make me not only nostalgic, but proud to be part of the USA. These songs are some of the best tunes to listen to when … [Read more...] about An American Playlist
Memorial day is just around the corner. To celebrate, Michael and I are throwing a little shindig tonight at our house. Well, it started out little. But now it's turned into a full blown party with 30+ people in attendance. Just like I like it. Memorial day is important to remember those who died for our country and should make us all feel more patriotic. I will definitely be celebrating … [Read more...] about How American Are You?
