If you have been around here for any length of time then you know I'm an avid list maker. So I think it goes without saying how exciting these were to make. The other night Matthew and I finally sat down and made two lists out. We have been talking about doing this forever, and we finally remembered to write it all down. I guess you could call them bucket lists, since it's a long list and we don't have a timeline or deadline on them. These are just places we want to cross off over time. We have talked about making out a list of goals and places we want to visit before we have kids one day, but we haven't gotten to that list yet.

The first list is on restaurants that we want to try. Some are in Nashville and some are in our town we live in now. I'm sure we'll find more that we want to add to this list, but I am excited to cross some of these off this summer. There are all kinds of restaurants on that list. Some are small burger joints, some are popular tourist places, and some are the higher end steakhouses. A lot of places we won't even go to this year or probably even next year, but like I said, there are no deadlines for these lists. 

The second list is our travel list. We divided it up into day trips and weekend trips. We both got really exited looking things up for these lists, and there are a ton of places we want to go and see over time. One thing we didn't add to this list are bigger vacations. Places that you can't really visit in just weekend, so we'll work on that list soon! It's exciting to think about and I get even more excited when I think about traveling to these places with Matthew. He really is the best friend I've ever had, and I love adventuring to new places with him.

So here are our far. I'm excited to cross things off and add more places as time goes on!

I found a lot of great idea on Pinterest, and you can see all those on my 'Travel' board and my 'Tennessee' board.

Are there any places we should add to this list? Send any and all suggestions our way!


  1. So fun!! I love lists too (and wrote about mine today also haha) these are great. I was happy to see Cincinnati made it to your weekend travel list!

  2. How much fun!! Love your lists - that'll be so nice to have it all written down! We wrote down a list of things we wanted to do while we were dating! We got most of them all done :)

  3. I don't see Charleston SC on your list! While I love Atlanta (its an hour from us) I would choose Charleston over that!!

    1. I agree with you. Charleston is better than Atlanta, though the aquarium in Atlanta is the best in the world so why not do both. I don't know about you but I never need an excuse for a day trip

  4. I see St. Louis on your list - it's a little further and would require longer than a weekend travel wise probably, but you need Kansas City on your list - it's a great place - fun things to do - great food!

  5. You will love Cincinnati!!! ;) list making completes me, haha! I love a good list. Good luck!!!

  6. Love your lists! We do something similar but ours all have deadlines or we will never get around to it. We have a list for Boston and then another for surrounding New England to complete while husband is still here for grad school. Plus a big trip list that we cross an item off of every year. We've done several of the items on your day trip list, so it looks like a good one.

  7. This is such fun!

    I love making lists too - although I'm not much help with this one. I'm in Canada!

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely day.

  8. I don't know if you've been there, but The Listening Room is amazing. And the Nashville Zoo is so fun! We went a few weeks ago. It'll be really good when they finish up the exhibits that are under construction. We'll be back in Nashville in August and are definitely going again.


Your comments always make my day!
