{2014 Olympics} I'm getting excited...

It's almost time for one of our favorite events. We are going to blink, and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are going to be here!

Are you a fan of the Olympics? Winter? Summer? Both? While I know more about events that are in the Summer Olympics, I find the Winter Olympics absolutely fascinating because it is all of the things I don't know. I didn't grow up ice skating or even knowing what curling was - unless you were talking about hair!

I'm most excited about all of the ice skating. It's so fun to watch. I watched the US Championships in Boston on TV a few weeks ago, and oh, it was so fun to get to know the stars of this upcoming Olympics. The drama. The intrigue... it's so fun!

I mean, who remembers what the big story was 20 years ago at the Olympics? Does this ring a bell?

I loved this story about the anniversary. I was a little girl when I watched Nancy Kerrigan, and remember staying up to watch those opening ceremonies on the pull-out couch in the play room at my parents' house. It is one of the first memories I have of the Olympics!

Are you excited for Feb. 7 and the Sochi Games to arrive? How much time will you spend watching? We'll try to watch everything we can, that's for sure.

As the adorable mittens I bought my husband say, "GO! USA!"

  1. I'm another Olympic-aholic! I LOVE them! I prefer the summer games because of the gymnastics, but I also love watching the figure skating, speed skating, and skiing events in the winter games! :)

  2. I cannot wait for the Winter Olympics! I love both but the winter has to be my favorite, mostly because of the figure skating like you! :) Our friends have started having Opening Ceremony watch parties and we plan on doing that again this year. It's a great way to start off the Olympics!

  3. Yay Olympics! I love both of them and get totally obsessed! I've been staying up way too late to watch live events on my phone. Haha!
