The Smell of Gold is in the air...

2 weeks of this month are host to the Summer Olympics! Squeak! Yeay! WooWoo! Yahoo! Wowie Zowie! I’m super nostalgic for the Games because I used to be a competitive swimmer and my mom and I would block out the world to watch. We still do, and continue to love everything swimming related. Some of our fav’s = the rival teams during all of the men’s and women’s freestyle relays, Amanda Beard (and her adorable teddy bear), Dara Torres and her long-standing career, the relay king – Jason Lezak, Kozuke Kitajima and his unbelievable breaststroke, everyone who could butterfly, and Michael Phelps – speechless. This list clearly doesn’t cover the massive list of highlights overall, but now I can see the excitement in your eyes too! What’s your favorite sport, race, or moment from the Games?
