hello instagram.

ok guys... oh the olympics!!!  
for real i'm addicted.  there is no way around it.  it's the the most inspiring, heart breaking, athletic, beautiful, emotional, nerve-wracking, fantastic thing!  i like sports and i occasionally watch them on tv (usually just the aggies) but the olympics has me wrapped around its little finger.  i will sacrifice sleep and even food for it... that's huge!  these athletes are just incredible.  not only physically but mentally.  i can't even believe the amount of self discipline, patience, and will power it must take to compete like they do.  amazing!  can i just start my life over and be a gymnast!?  maybe ;)
i can't even begin to watch all the events (i'm not even sure if half of them are televised) but if i could i so would!  love swimming, and volleyball, and of course gymnastics, and that synchronized diving is so fun too!  
can you imagine being the athletes parents!?  i can't.  i'm sure i would die of a heart attack.  i tear up every time they show the parents in the stands, and i cry every time someone medals... i know, such a girl.  and that jordyn weiber.  oh my heart just breaks for her.  can the camera man please give her a break, she is just a kid!!!  but what an awesome, classy, mature girl to be so disappointed but come out and freaking nail it in the team final.  that is the kind of role model i want my daughter to have.  pure class, she's amazing!  we love you jordyn!!
and we love the USA!!
ok, i've rambled on long enough about the olympics but seriously if you haven't been watching you are missing out!

how excited do you think i was when we showed up to work the day of opening ceremonies of the olympics and katie and i were matching!!  ly katie!
team USA!!
