That's fine! I don't care if you eat! I just want you to show up so I can put a face to a name!

DUH! I just checked my evite. Not sure how I will juggle things that day but my intention would be to attend both. My other one starts at 10 am so I'll probably get to the one at your house a little late but having already eaten lunch.

Cheers!

The pot luck will be for lunch... Did I not send you an evite?

If you didn't get one please send me your email address, privately, and I'll make sure you get it.

Hey there on a very hot Sacramento Wednesday! Have you given any thought to the time frame of the party? I found one place where you said 'afternoon' which is better for me. The pot luck would be for dinner? Just checking. Realized I have an annual Women in Technological Sisterhood (WITS) pot luck for lunch. Never can have too many pots!

Cheers!

The meet & greet sounds great, but I will be out of town that weekend hope you guys have fun

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right, forget the ones who dont & believe that everything happens for a reason.
If you get a chance, take it.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said that it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

I agree! Reading the comments is always helpful. I find that I do that no matter what recipe site I'm using. Helps to guide you towards what might taste good to you!

I can cook, but always need to follow a written recipe to do it. What I'm not good at is deciding what to add that 'sparks' the flavor. I find most of the recipes are good, but left to the individual to season to their own tastes. I end up using small portions to season separately to try and find out what gives the recipe some zing! A touch of vinegar sometimes works. Salt works but I don't like to put a lot in recipes. Sometimes reading the comments helps a lot in considering variations that make things tastier.

Cheers!

I use SparkRecipes often. I love it! They're not always the healthiest, but it's something new!

A meet up sounds like fun, but a little scary too. Faces to names might provide more motivation. It's the putting body sizes to names that scares me! LOL I'm awful at bringing pot luck stuff. I've been trying out some of the Spark Recipes. Maybe I can find something there simple and healthy to bring. Anyone else here using Spark Recipes?

Cheers!

Well, my yard is complete and more than ready for guests! How about a tentative date of July 12th. We can do a pot luck. I'll send out a mass SparkMail and ask for everyone's email address and send out an Evite to make tracking everything a little better.

I'm so glad to see that you're all interested!

Rockinchick, Maybe we have to have a candle-off to see how many go on your cake vs. my cake!
BrookeElise, this got lost in the many messages from this site! Party! Yes, Yes, a Party! Did I miss it? Please schedule it still, but make it a title we notice, not just "A new post in your sparkteam Sacramento Success!" I know, you have no ability to control that, but I really didn't see this one! I'd love to come! emoticon

Hi Brooke, I am way late in reading this post. Have you decided yet? If not just to let you know when I was part of a Sacramento WW team we would gather at restaurants and parks. One meet up was at Elk Grove park, no permit needed just get there early and hold a nice spot. Other is just wait it out till your backyard is ready then have a BBQ with all our healthy fixin'. I am game but I would probably be the oldest in the room. emoticon

Erin, that would be great! I thought about having it at the park, but was concerned about getting a permit. I'm open for suggestions and help!

Thanks!

I would love to attend a meetup. I think actually meeting some of my team members would motivate me that much more. Please let me know when the meetup is going to be. We could always have it at a park and go for a walk or play croquet or another fun outdoor activity. Keep me in the loop, and send me a pm if you'd like help organizing it! emoticon

I would like too, but my backyard is currently under some major renovations... Plus I haven't really had anyone interested. Maybe we could reschedule for later this month?

I've been giving this some thought and I feel the best, least expensive, and most fun way to do this would be to hold it at my home!

The pool in the backyard is clean and ready for anyone who wants to take dip! I have 2 parks nearby with beautiful walking trails and my home is somewhat centrally located (Elkhorn & I-80).

Saturdays are always very busy for me, as I'm sure is the case for most of you, so I thought a Sunday afternoon would be a great idea. How does June 8th sound?

I'm thinking a nice, healthy pot luck!

How does that sound to everyone?
