When Sparks Fly

And I mean literally. One of my SparkleLovelies flew into Phoenix last week and we *FINALLY* got to meet!! (I'll pretend she came specifically to see me because I'm just that awesome, and not for her best friend's wedding. LoLz)

If you haven't been lucky enough to chat with Leanne (aka FINDING_LEELEE), let me tell you: you are missing out!! She is such a kick in the pants! She found me (and we don't remember exactly how) on SparkPeople. Last year, she had sent out a status asking if anyone wanted to be text buddies. I emailed her and was like, hellz to the yes!

And BAMMMM!!! Instant connection. Instant hetero lifemate-like chemistry. Plus she's going to be moving out to Phoenix SOON, so it was like we were destined to find each other. It was amazing!! We would text, we would SparkPeople, we would Facebook each other. When I found out she was coming out here, I was ecstatic!

Then, sad face, she didn't know if we'd be able to meet. Then Monday, there was a window of opportunity after I got off work. MAKE IT HAPPEN!!

6:30pm - I'm outside the restaurant (The Vig), just chillin', waiting to finally meet her. You know how it goes. The anticipation was making me nervous. Totally like a first date: Is my outfit cute enough? Does my hair look okay? Will she like me? Haha, I'm hopeless!

She texted me asking if I was sitting outside. I said yeah. Then I see this wave of curly hair and an excited full arm wave crossing the street. EEEEEEEEEEE!!! She's here!! HUGE hug - like we'd already met a million times.

We go into the restaurant and were chatting for probably damn near an hour before we even ordered. That poor waitress came over about 4 times before we even glanced at the menus.

We talked about weight loss. We talked about exercise. We talked about boys. We talked about life. We talked about her move. We talked about everything under the sun. And we talked about boys some more :)

And all of a sudden it was 9:15. Time was flying by!! Her flight back to New York was the next morning and I needed to go home and get things ready for work the next day. So we took a couple obligatory Facebook/SparkPeople pictures and went our separate ways.

I can't wait for her to come back out in a couple months and then move here a little later this year. So stoked!!

So here's us :)



If any of you other SparkleLovelies live or are ever in the Phoenix area, let me know! I'd love to meet up and chat!! :)

    Gee. I was in Phoenix yesterday. How cool for you to meet. Where in Phoenix are you? If you are not aware of it, and are looking for a really cool place to work out -- check out The Salvation Army Kroc Center (South Mtn Area). Family memberships avail. Lots of great options!

    I remember about 5 years ago when I lived in TX, 5 Spark friends & some of their spouses met up in the hill country at a B & B for a 4-day weekend & we had a BALL! They came from CA, AZ, GA & TN & we're all still good friends, having met up again in NC for a week.
Don't ya just emoticon actually meeting in person!!!
