let's talk olympics.

in just three weeks, the winter olympics will be here! i LOVE the olympics. i'm super competitive and also all about some team spirit. the summer olympics are my fave because i like so many more of the summer sports. i was a competitive swimmer growing up and am obsessed with watching those races. plus, the 2012 olympics were in london and y'all know i love me some royal family, so i was extra pumped.

however, with winter sports, you've got ice skating (magical) and skiing (breathtaking and stressful), and the bobsleigh races (absolutely terrifying.) every time i watch bobsleigh teams getting ready to go, i start quoting cool runnings. feel the rhythm. feel the rhyme! seriously though, can you imagine flying down icy paths at those speeds?? i'm on the edge of my seat for every second of every race yelling at the television and cheering on my favorites.

do y'all like the olympics? what events are your favorite?

also, P&G always comes out with great commercials for the olympics. remember this one from 2012? now they've got one for this year's winter olympics. i cry every time.
