    Some Weekend Outfits

    Just thought I'd show you some of my outfits I wore this weekend.

    This first one I wore to church.

    The next one I wore out when we went downtown to walk around.  It eventually got colder and I had to put on a jacket.  Still pretty cute!

    My Biggest Fear ... #BLOGTOBER14

    Helene in Between Blogtober

    I have tons and tons of fears from lightning to someone breaking into my house (which someone attempted once while I was home a few years ago).

    It seems the older I get, the more things I am scared of!  But the one that most consumes me is....

     Not Being In My Comfort Zone

    Florida Fall Fashion - #BLOGTOBER14

    Helene in Between Blogtober

    Haha my fall fashion isn't going to be the same as it used to be when I lived in Omaha or Ohio.  I now live in Northeastern Florida so it is quite warm right now.  The temps are running between the high 70s to low to mid 80s right now which is just fine by me!  Everyone else's 'fall' will probably come to us in our 'winter.'  Interesting!  So anyways, here is my outfit from today.  Please don't get scared by my horrid d├ęcor in the background or lumpy bed. LOL! 

    My outfit is a dress I haven't worn in forever cuz I haven't really cared about my appearance in years when it comes to going to work but I've been trying to improve that since I've gotten to FL.  Plus I needed something to wear because our office was having a Breast Cancer Awareness photo opp and we had to wear pink.  So there ya go!  Oh and the heels were 4 inches.  I have forgotten how to wear heels, it has been so long! LOL!  The dress is actually too big for me now but it still seems to work and is comfy!

    Helene in Between Blogtober

    I have too many favorite quotes!  Check them all out HERE on Pinterest.  So if I had to choose just one....

    I've messed up so much in my life but none of that matters when I'm around my friends!

    Beach Pics Galore!

    So I currently now live about 10 minutes from the OCEAN...which is incredible.  So I thought I'd do a photo dump of a ton of beach pics and some other pics of my choosing.  Enjoy!

    This isn't my 4Runner (mine is black) but this is what I want to do someday!  And tailgate out there as well. 

    One of my first beach pics when arriving to Florida. 

    This is me with some friends I had recently met thru work.  I was invited to this incredible lake house and just swam in the lake for hours and hours.  It was AWESOME.

    I ate dinner at Crab Trap in downtown Fernandina Beach and this was a nice image as we were walking to the restaurant.

    Not sure if you can see but there are horses in the background about to go on the beach.


    At the lake house.

    My friend's mom-in-law has a pool and I hit that a few weeks after I got here.  So nice!
