Happy Olympics!


So the above picture very accurately describes what we’ve been up to the last few days (and plan to be doing for the next week or so). Good god, I freaking love the Olympics! Who knew I was so passionate about archery? I didn’t…but the Olympics sucked me in. And the swimming. Oh goodness, the swimming. Between Michael Phelps’ will-he-or-won’t-he-be-good-since-he-smoked-pot-and-took-a-few-years-off drama and Lochte’s ridiculous American flag grill (you’re a hot, hot man, Lochte, but you’re making yourself way less hot with that grill) I am glued to the television! And the girls swimmers are so adorable and strong and fast and they all have the best teeth, you know?

Then we have the gymnastics. Oh, the gymnastics. Have I ever told you all how obsessed I was with the “Magnificent Seven” back in 1996? So obsessed that when they did a world tour the year after the Atlanta games, my sister bought us tickets and I cried. CRIED. Lu is so excited for this portion of the program that she keeps cartwheeling everywhere. Last night we stayed up way too late watching those insanely strong little girls (really, they are tiny little girls) fly through the air. In fact, I feel like we may have a few late nights in our future.

So, since I didn’t have time to come up with a post, due to my Olympic-related hysteria, here are a few links from around the web that will get you sucked into the Olympic fever:

– If you’re not following Samuel L. Jackson on Twitter, get on that. He’s live tweeting the Olympics with such enthusiasm. I might love you, Mr. Jackson.


– Need some Olympic gear? Gap and Old Navy are selling some fun vintage-inspired Olympic tee’s.

– The swim team did a version of “Call Me Maybe.” I love the swim team!

– Speaking of the swim team, how charming is Missy Franklin? So charming!

– This video of an Olympic greeter at the opening ceremonies is amazing. Who says Brits have a dry sense of humor?!

Ed. Note: I may or may not have stayed up way too late watching said Olympics and am now hyped up on caffeine and breakfast bars. That should explain all the squealing and use of the word “and” over and over in the above post. I’ll probably be back to normal in a week or so. Go USA!
