The Olympics!!

Has anyone else been loving the Olympics? So awesome. I've gotten next to zero writing done, but I don't care. I'm addicted. And the Olympics aren't on every day, so I love watching it when it is.

It's so amazing watching these athletes work so hard for something and make it so far. I admit I've had a few tears watching the past week or so. The medal winners, the ones who fall short. It's an emotional ride for a lot of those people.

It just goes to show you though, dreams can come true. Things work out. Sometimes they don't, but it's so awesome when something does.

Now, I'm going back to watching the track and field this morning. I hope everyone has a great day!!

Have you been watching? What has your favorite event been? I love the women's gymnastics and swimming. Diving is so cool too. And water polo? BRUTAL! I could never tread water that long!

Isn't it amazing?? I am still a little emotionally drained from all the British success on Saturday night - it was incredible. But I will be watching some more later! :D

Yes. I love the men's and women's swimming the best. And I didn't know water polo was so intense but it's been eye opening to watch these Olympics. Lot of fun and all the athletes are very impressive and work incredibly hard :)

I'm loving it here in England! The whole country is in a party mood and the BBC coverage is fantastic.

The gymnastics has been the most amazing thing ever. Sooooo intense!

Beach volleyball, baby! I gear up for that one, and the American teams have been playing so well. But I love all of it, even the sports I don't normally like.

I'm loving the Olympics, but not so much NBC and there decision to delay broadcasts to primetime.

I'm loving the cycling, and GB have done so well it's a bit overwhelming! Love all the track and field stuff, too.

I love the Olympics! My favorite is definitely swimming and gymnastics. Oh, and diving. And it's not just because the men's British diving team is gorgeous. ;) But the dedications of Olympians is just crazy inspirational!

I don't know whether it's because it's in my home town, but it's been amazing, hasn't it.
I haven't got much done here either :o)

The Olympics have been taking all my time! But its only once every 2 years so we can indulge right?

Yes, I've been totally sucked in! There are so many great stories, and I'm amazed at the awesome guest posts for the Olympic Blog Relay I've been hosting too. Lots of inspiration to go around!
