My Texas Bucket List!

A few weeks ago, Andrew and I went to Buc-ees’s. Buc-ees’s is literally a Texas landmark. It is this huge gas station that has everything you could ever want or need while traveling!

Well while in Buc-ees, I found a postcard of Texas! It highlights the most popular landmarks in Texas!! Ahh, after reading so many blogs and articles about the must-do’s of Texas, I found a postcard that simply gave me the map I needed.

Although the Coast Guard could extend our stay in Texas or even send us back to Texas in the future, I still want to make the most out of the time we are “officially” here.  When we first moved here, I hand wrote a Texas bucket list but was overwhelmed when I kept finding things to add to it! But throughout these two years here in Houston, I think I found some of the best gems in Texas.

Here is my official Texas Bucket List! **Drum roll please!!**
