let the games begin

Friday, July 27, 2012

hello hello & Happy Friday!  Looking forward to the weekend, we're staying in town and hoping to get a lot of relaxing & a little yard-work done.  I am going out on the town {or the oceanfront} on Saturday with a fun group of ladies for a girls night out {GNO} and I'm just hoping to make it back alive....

But tonight, I am so excited to watch the opening ceremonies and see the Olympic games begin! 
Are you as in love with the Olympics as I am??  I don't know what it is, maybe its the patriotism, the anticipation, the rivalries, the competition, the pride.   There is something magical about the Olympics and the way it brings about an air of unity to all nations competing. Its a time where we put aside issues, controversies, and politics, where we just compete together testing our skills, bringing out champions and highlighting unknown stars.

The Olympics is just one of the millions of times I am so proud to be an American, rooting for my country to go all the way. These 2012 Olympic games are going to spectacular, I can just feel it.  There are more woman on the US Olympic team than men, for the first time ever!  And if Michael Phelps wins just 3 more medals of any color he will be the most decorated Olympian of all time!  The US basketball team is said to be the "dream team" and is once again coached by the best coach of all time {Duke's head coach, Mike Krzyzewski}.  

So for the next couple of weeks our TV will broadcast nothing the Olympic games and I will be cheering my heart out for the country I love so much.

Go USA!!! 

What are you most looking forward to about the Olympics?  

until next time,
Happy weekend!
