Too busy being patriotic


I've been busy with work, getting Little Man prepped to start first grade on Monday and The Olympics. I record every second of coverage and devour each competition like a good little American. I jump up and down, chant USA and shed tears with every win. Yes, I'm that girl. Sometimes, I even find myself rooting for other countries. I love to see an underdog come out of nowhere and medal. Who knew Mexico had great divers? I love swimming, diving, beach volleyball, and all the track & field events. Gymnastics will always be my first love though. Last night's gold medal win, the first in sixteen years, was amazing to watch. I'm so proud of our girls and our country.


I know everyone is all about Ryan Lochte these days, but my Olympic loving heart will always belong to Michael Phelps. Nineteen medals and counting, y'all!



USA! USA! USA!

I'm that girl too! Goosebumps and tears today for my boy Nathan Adrian!!! I watch my favorite events live online all day long (my poor neglected kids. I bribe them with candy and stickers to leave me alone during certain events) and then I still watch every second at night and I’m sooooo tired. But I can’t stop! Michael’s attitude kind of pissed me off in the beginning, but I’m sooo happy that he’s at 19! He’s our Olympic hero! It’s history in the making! I love diving and gymnastics too. The Women’s Team was awesome yesterday. Men’s Team really disappointed me, I cringed for two hours straight. Men’s all-around today was awesome though! I LOVE IT ALL! I’m sad to see swimming end soon, but so excited for track!

I love Michael Phelps, too. But have you SEEN Ryan Lochte's FACE??

Gymnastics was awesome and I was so excited for our girls. It's just so sad that the other teams fell apart so badly. I've always enjoyed it when it was a real competition.
