Spark Sister Sami Visit


Tuesday, August 06, 2013

This weekend I had the pleasure of meeting one of my SPARK sisters. We met on Spark a while back, not sure how long but I know it's been over a year maybe even two, time just flies these days. We have been sparking together, inspiring each other, exchanging emails, texting and then to talking on the phone. I invited her to come to visit me here in Virginia Beach.

Sami arrived on Thursday evening. Both of us were nervous (just a little nervous) about meeting each other for the first time....what if she didn't like me? what if I didn't like her? Well all that went out the window as soon as I saw her. We just "clicked", just like I knew we would. There was never an "awkward" moment the entire weekend, it's like we had known each other all our lives - WOW, we truly are sisters, from another mother of course, lol.

Our husbands thought we were out of our minds with "meeting our internet friends", what if we were serial killers, lol (husbands tend to be a little on the drastic side) - but after this weekend I think they are both convinced we aren't totally crazy (well maybe a little) - but my husband enjoyed having her stay and told me he really liked her - so now I get to venture to visit her neck of the woods next time.

We enjoyed dining out, we shopped til we dropped (literally), talked, laughed, went sightseeing, I had my family over for a cookout on Sunday so she could meet my crazy bunch, I wanted everyone to meet her and for her to meet everyone and we made a special trip to see my BFF Teresa, I wanted Sami to meet her too.

I enjoyed Sami's visit very much (only it was too short).....

Early morning chats over coffee, as in 5 a.m. - Both of us like to chat (imagine that, hee hee)

Kitchen time - I couldn't get out of my kitchen duties the entire time, darn (I did have to feed the menfolk, lol) - she helped with the meals, dishes, etc. She even taught me how to make some fantastic hashbrowns (Sami style as they are now known) and to flavor a baked potato with a bay leaf (who knew). To further demonstrate how super, dooper Sami is....she offered to make the hamburger patties for our cookout, she knows I can't stand to touch raw meat, eewhhhhhh....now what a woman and a friend, thanks lady.

Shopping - we both love to shop and better yet...we love a good bargain and we ran into a bunch of super deals and got some serious retail therapy - and we even made a stop in to the salon for a hair cut too.

I was so sad to see her go, but so glad I got to finally meet her. It is so hard to find truly genuine, sweet people in this world and of all the millions of people that are members of SPARKPEOPLE, we found each other. So not only is Sami a super Spark friend...she is now a part of my family. Looking forward to many happy sister years.

    I am jealous! No one ever wants to come to albany. Can't imagine why. Course then I'd have to clean. Plus they'd have to be ok with 2 little barky, jumpy dogs & fur everywhere no matter how much I vacuum. Cause it's all about me, see?

Glad you had such a fun weekend!

Glad Mr P liked her too. That's awesome.
I knew you both would have a great time.
