Nashville, TN!
But... right after I land, I'm picking up my rental car & driving to Murray, Kentucky. Luke's grandma lives there & I'm meeting up with them so we can all drive over to... 
Sikeston, MO!
For Luke's cousins wedding!

I have always wanted to spend some time in Nashville & it looks like we'll only have about a day there... The purpose of this trip is solely for his family. It will be fun to meet his grandma & his cousin. Luke's aunt, uncle & other cousin, Jenni, live in Vancouver, so I see them ALL the time when I visit Luke in Portland... So I am excited to see the other part of the family that I hear so much about!

So, has anyone ever been to rural Missouri/rural Kentucky? I have an aunt & uncle that live about an hour away from where we're staying [in Fulton, KY, on a strawberry farm], so I'm going to try & meet up with them!

BUT let me share with you the only information I have been given about where were headed...

- I've heard that you can go to a bar & if you don't finish your beer they give you a "to-go" cup for the ride home....

- I've also heard stories of men driving their trucks & then pulling over to the side of the road to get a new beer from the cooler in the bed of their truck...

- The claim to fame in Sikeston, MO is Lambert's Cafe. If you're a Food Network/Travel Channel junkie like me, then you might have seen this place featured on "The Worlds Best Places to Pig Out".

- The wedding we're going to is catered by Applesbee's & Buffalo Wild Wings [this is either A. Amazing or B. Awful] I personally love BWW, so I'm excited!

Should I be scared or excited based on the above facts? 
I almost cannot believe that I just wrote this post either. It is a far cry from the life I live in the city of Seattle...
