Olympic Cheer!

Friday, July 27, 2012

Yaay! Cheers! I've been waiting for this day. It's the start of the Olympics! I'm wearing my Olympic tshirts and I can't wait to see all of the athletes. The talent they possess is truly amazing. I think they should ALL be applauded.

Are there any particular events you like to watch? I love watching gymnastics, basketball and swimming. I'm personally cheering for swimmer Ryan Lochte. My slogan is Lochte is a Hottie! I also can't wait to see the Opening Ceremony. Anyone remember the Opening Ceremony in Beijing, China (2008)? So much history, precision, custom, discipline and detail. They really set the bar HIGH! hahaha Oh well, attached are some olympic themed images I came across that made me SMILE and will make you SMILE (me wearing a PEACE US/British tshirt holding a can of Coca-Cola olympic instagram pic).

I would like to thank everyone for their comments the other day regarding my unique blog posts and topics. I've always gravitated towards unique, different, and extraordinary people & things. Blogging has given me a medium to share what I think is awesome and what I love with YOU.

Many of you asked where do I find these topics? I subscribe to a smorgasbord of stores, designers, magazines and pop culture pages via Twitter and Instagram. Feel free to see who I follow. When you follow a plethora of sites, sometimes one thing will  lead you to something else. For example, I followed a site on Twitter that only talked about chocolate. Well one day they mentioned Choccywoccydoodah! So that's how I found out about them. Anything that I find interesting, know that I will share it with you.

Again, I thank each of you. As much as you enjoy reading my blog, I enjoy reading yours too. I learn so much. Have a wonderful weekend! Oops, I mean Cheery-O or is it Cheerio? LOL

...and the WINNER of the Butter LONDON Giveaway is...

Congratulations Jo! I'm sending you an email!

Have a good Olympic-filled weekend!

Cee said...

I'm excited for the Olympics, too - mainly to watch the gymnastics :) I spent nine years of my life in the gym and, although an injury eventually took me out, I've continued to follow the sport ever since and the Olympics are the most exciting event of all. And truth is, I'm cheering for Ryan Lochte, too - because what woman isn't? LOL!


Oh Yeah! It's time for Olympics Game!
Love all the pictures you posted!

So...lochte took the gold yesterday! Love your photo montage of him, lol! It is truly amazing what these athletes put themselves thru. Coincidentally, I came across 'make it or break it' on Netflix. Total teen movie, but the timing was perfect and it set me up for the Olympics.
