I figure why try to think of a snappy title.  It’s all about the Olympics…

Did you watch the Opening Ceremony?  Did you like it?  I know there were some people out there that weren’t that big a fan.  I didn’t mind them.  Sure they weren’t as flashy as Beijing, but how could they be? 

My favorite parts were Mr. Bean

Daniel Craig and the Queen


And the Olympic Cauldron

I think it’s really neat that it’s made up of torches representing all the different countries. 

In order celebrate the Olympics Leanne, Phil and I got together.  We ate, of course.  Our meal included:


Mad props to Leanne who decorated the cupcakes! 😉

Not my photo, I forgot to take one.  Oops!  And very patriotic bread.

It was all delicious, celebratory, and…American!

I tried to stay up until midnight, but I fell asleep on the couch.  Thank goodness for DVR.  I loved that the ceremony ended with Paul McCartney.

He gave a great performance and you can tell he was excited about it. 

So who are you rooting for?  Phelps or Lochte?  Douglas or Wieber?  Personally I’m on team Phelps and Douglas, but either way the competition will be awesome!
