Do you or your husband already have a job?
If so - where you live would depend upon how much of a commute you'd be willing to make.
Unless you know somebody in the Dallas area who can recommend nice places to live (within your budget), I would recommend that you contact an apartment referral service. These people usually get paid commissions by apartments for referring tenants to them. They would know the area well and would also be able to help you find suitable accomodations that would fit your budget.
Here are some websites you may want to visit. (I cannot vouch for any of them since I haven't done business with them).
