Love the Olympics Survey

Hey!!

Happy FRIDAY :)

I am glad we’re all of the same opinion. If your dreams don’t scare you, then honestly, your dreams are not BIG enough.

LOVE the comments in that post–so check those out.  You guys are an inspiring bunch!

******

Did ya all know the Olympics start in a week?!! I am SO.EXCITED.

I LOVE the Olympics. Love them.

I remember as a little girl just being mesmerized by the athletes’ ability to do what they did, and to do it SO well. It was fascinating to me then and it still is.

Funny story: I did musicals in HS (I was a thespian–an actress and dancer in the shows, NOT a singer). When the 2002 Winter Olympics were going on, the show I was in was going on as well. I remember very clearly watching the skaters skate (my favorite sport to watch in WO is the ice skating, and Michelle Kwan will always be my favorite), in between acts.

Well, the final skating session happened while I was on stage, and when I returned, I burst into tears when I saw that Michelle Kwan had been ousted (yet again) by a younger skater (Sarah Hughes this time, Tara Lipinski in 98′).

Yah. Dramatic much?! You guys don’t even know how much I respect and admire Michelle Kwan. Such a talented athlete and skater!

Anyways. The Olympics mean a lot to me, and so I am totally nerded out for next week’s opening ceremonies!

Here’s my “Love the Olympics” Survey –all opinions are my own. ;)

  7. gymnastics and diving are my favorites!

  8. Yayy I’m so pumped for the Olympics! I love watching gymnastics too. I used to do it when I was younger and the most exciting thing I could do was a cartwheel. :P So it always amazes me to watch the gymnasts do their crazy flips!

  9. I love the Olympics! For the summer games, I am glue to the screen when gymnastics is on. If it is the winter games, then I am watching skiing and skating. Friday night plans include a hot dog supper and VBS graduation at church, then catching up on my DVR with the hubby!

  12. Haha, good job rooting for us Aussies ;) I love the Olympics too! The cycling freaks me out though- I hate bikes and can’t ride but it just looks so dangerous.

  13. I Love the Olympics especially Gymnastics but I am annoyed that they will not honor the memory of the Israeli Gymnastics who were murdered by Terrorists! I feel it is MORE fitting after the happenings in CO.
