Tacklin’ the List

Well, it’s official: I’m doing the Mackinac Bridge Labor Day Walk!

We booked our hotel yesterday.

The 5-mile bridge walk is on my Bucket List. When my longtime friend Christi read the list, she wrote me and said she wanted to be with me when I mark that one off.

She and her family are coming from Kentucky to help me do it.


My friend Cookie has said she wants to do the Kentucky Derby with me, and my Flint Journal girlfriends say they’ll do Bonnaroo.

I’m hoping to hold them all to it next year!

Take a look at my list again. Is there something you want to help me mark off?

Is there something that’s on both yours and my list that we can do together?

What are we waiting for?


  1. I'm in for golf lessons and scuba diving. :)

  2. I hoped you would be in for scuba diving, Kristy! Yay! We will make it happen.

  3. Whitewater rafting is on my list, too. That would be super fun to do with you. And doing the bridge walk. Maybe. This post reminded me to go back and finish putting together my list. I hope to put it up soon!

  4. Great, Nancy! Though, if you're nervous about the bridge, then I sure as heck ain't gonna tell you about my first and only experience with whitewater rafting. Though I'll say this: It's the only time in my life I thought I was going to die. :) I kind of need to do it again just to prove I can. Cheerio.

  5. Well ....it's a toss up between #24 and #27..... I think I will stick with #24. They will have some coming up at JoAnn Etc! Can we make dirty things out of the frosting for the class to see?

  6. Lisa, yay! And absolutely. Naughty cake making is an underappreciated art.
