Connecting Flights

I bet more than a few of you are going to be hitting the airport this holiday season. Today I am going to tell you about my little brush with celebrity which just so happened to be in the Vancouver airport. It is pretty much my favorite story to tell ever, I'm surprised I haven't worked it into a blog post before.

Back in May 2004, I was headed back from my honeymoon with my new husband. We went on an Alaskan cruise and had to fly from Vancouver back home to Arizona. As we made our way through customs I noticed there was a lot of buzz among people. Everyone was whispering excitedly about something. I am as curious as they come, so I made a great effort to find out what was going on. It was then, that I saw him. It was Michael Vartan, the hunk from Alias and former beau of Jennifer Garner. The show Alias was still on, and he was a big celebrity. No one seemed to be approaching him, just lots of buzz about him.
Well, I am not ashamed to say that I followed him at a respectful distance until he went into a little gift shop. The gift shop was empty and so I took my chance to pounce and get a picture with him.
 I was in heaven, and he is a little more, "I better take the picture, so this broad will quit following me." Right after the picture he ducked into a VIP lounge of some sort. I was so happy I plucked up the courage to ask for a picture. Do you have any awesome airport/flight stories?

 I saw this awesome trailer for a movie "Connecting Flights." It made me laugh pretty hard, I highly recommend you watch it. I love the tagline, "Sometimes you fall in love and sometimes you run into it." #connectingflights


Seriously, how funny is that Sears commercial.I totally wish it was a movie, they had me going the first time I watched it.

This is a sponsored post, I am a Sears blogger, though all opinions are my own.

  2. I'm so bad at remembering different actors but it's neat that you got to meet a famous person who you knew. I've never came close to meeting anyone like that but I live in the middle of nowhere :)

  3. I always run into T-Pain at airports! But I've always been to shy to ask for a picture! Good for you girlfriend.

    And that commercial cracks me up!!!!! I went on a date the other night and that played and he said, "I know you so wish that was a real movie!"
