I’m excited! I love watching the equestrian events and also basketball!

This probably sounds silly, but do you know when it “officially” starts? I have been watching the trials and I’m confused lol

SO pumped! I joked with DH that I watched the trials as practice. I love Ryan Lochte (fellow Gator) and I knew it was unlikely she would make the team but I’ve always liked Alicia Sacramone for some reason. Gabby Douglas is the cutest.

YES! i cannot wait for them to start. I have to root for Phelps of course! he is a beast and I hope he just brings in more medals this time around. I love watching gymnastics too.

My husbands cousin works for the NBA and he is headed to London now with his fiance for the games. I’m so jealous!

Yep, sure am!  It’ll give me something to watch after the Tour ends!  I don’t really have a favorite sport, I just like watching all the different events.  Those athletes are intense!

Yes!  I love watching the swimmers. Overall they are pretty cute!  We are leaving for our honeymoon the Sunday after they start, so I see some lazy days spent watching the Olympics.

Yes! We went to London a few weeks ago and saw Olympic Park and my neighbor and I took our little ones too see the Torch Relay!

Olympic Stadium, we took this photo from a viewing platform

This is where everyone think the flame will be

I have some better photos, but they have my cousin’s kids in them so I don’t want to post.
