Friday Afternoon Round Up

Today is the best day in the last four years. Nope, it isn’t Christmas, my birthday or any other holiday. Today we celebrate the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad, in London England.

I consider myself an Olympic fanatic, especially of the summer games. As a result, today’s Friday Afternoon Round Up is dedicated to all of the greatness that we are going to experience for the next three weeks. Go USA!

Four years ago, Beijing set the bar very high. Can London match it?

Thank goodness Abby and I didn’t make it to the Olympics – we saved our parents a lot of money!

Is rickshaw the newest Olympic sport?

While all eyes will be on what the athletes wear to Opening Ceremonies (seriously Ralph, what’s with the jaunty cap?) I am sure a few will be focused on Kate’s fashion.

The US swim team is clearly the coolest team at the games. The US women’s soccer team is a close second.

Maybe I should stage a comeback, a pregnant one!

Nose plugs, hair gel and ridiculous facial expressions. Get excited!

The next contestant on The Biggest Loser? Nope, she’s an Olympic hopeful.

What’s in the London water that is making Matt so giddy?

Thankfully she chose to be all Red, White and Blue!

I’m hoping for lots of scrunchies, color coordinated with their leos of course.

Are we ready? Are we ready? Yes we are!
