Temptation Tuesday: Travel Edition

It's time I introduce you to one of my favorite fellow blogettes - Miss Kriss. She is an absolute doll and has a wedding rapidly approaching in the Grand Cayman Islands that I have a feeling is going to be the party of the century. Once you start reading her blog, you'll see why. She is just the definition of F.U.N. Anyway, she has a great little thing she does each week called Temptation Tuesday, and because I've got so many fantastic places on the brain for where I'd like to travel in the next months and years, I thought I'd tempt you with these lovely locales as well. So with that in mind, I present to you:

The Travel Edition

First up, we have this absolutely jaw-dropping setting. Some call it the Greek Isles, I call it heaven. I want to see it all - Santorini, Oia, Mykonos, Crete - you name it. And the food? Opa my goodness! Don't even get me started. Mediterranean cuisine is probably one of my favorites. And P.S. don't even think about going over to VABelle's blog to see her honeymoon recap unless you want to hunt her down and make her share the exact itinerary with you. That girl hit all the best spots, and her photos are just swoon-worthy. If I didn't like her so much, I'd hate her a little. But I like her so much. I mean this is an exact photo of the place she stayed, people. I know, I thought it was a postcard too.

Santorini. Seriously. I am SO going.

Next up is a place I've been wanting to go ever since I discovered vino. We're talking Wine Country, my friends, and oh yes, it's going to happen...preferrably in the fall. Something about visiting this part of California is just so alluring and romantic to me. I picture the hubs and me renting a car, a jeep actually, and driving all over Napa and Sonoma. And smashing grapes with my toes is SO on my bucket list.

Behold the wine country.

Another little jewel that I sometimes forget I want to visit and then all of a sudden remember and proceed to internet stalk until I happen to check the airfare and realize it's impossible to get to for less than a $600 plane ticket is none other than Key West. Say it with me, Nashville airport: "Direct Flight."

Key West

Annnnnnnd while we're on the subject, I'd really like to stay at the Casa Marina Resort, which just so happens to be under the Waldorf Astoria umbrella. Please and thank you, lottery gods.

Perhaps one of my most favorite cities in all of the contintentals is none other than Charleston. It's so southern and chic at the same time. And I'm a sucker for a great bed and breakfast.

Charleston, S.C.

Yes, I'll take a view of the battery while the sun sets over the Atlantic. Yes, I would like lemon in my sweet tea. And no, please don't call me ma'am.

Okay, that's enough temptation for this Tuesday. Sister's got some trip planning to do!!!


  1. I love Temptation Tuesday! Thanks so much for the shout out :) I obviously agree that Greece should be on the top of your list. I have always wanted to go to Napa and Sonoma. I looove wine tasting and I have heard that those are the places to do it! Hope you're having a good week!

  2. Oooh my hubby is taking me to Napa for my birthday in a few months! I've been wanting to go for years. I can't wait!! I'll be sure to share all of the details when we return!:)

  3. Oooooh girlie! These destinations are definitely tempting! I love, love, LOOOOVVVE Napa! I would seriously move there if I could. And the Greek Isles? Seriously? Definitely on my bucket list! :)

    Yaaay! So glad you played!! :) Looove you!

    And P to the S. When I return from Cayman, can we please get those drinks we keep talking about?!

  4. I've been to Key West twice now for 2 weeks at a time. It's a great little town with TONS of bars and island music! :) I drove down both times and I'm from PA so it took 18 hours to get to Miami and another 4ish hours after that! It is worth it!

  5. Sonoma is the best place in the world. I am DYING to go back. It's just unbelievably beautiful and cute and perfect... I could go on and on.
