Tuesday Talk...

So, I was bouncing around ideas for this week's Tuesday Talk & decided that since my face has been glued to the TV the last two night watching the Olympics, I should write about that.  So, here are some things that I have learned from the Olympics thus far:

    1.  It's table tennis NOT ping pong...didn't realize there was a difference.  Apparently, there is.  Sorry, my bad.  Looks the same to me.

    2.  Aly Raisman is unbelievable!  Everyone talks about Gabby & Simone but this girl ROCKED it on Sunday night on the floor.  Holy crap!  I cannot wait to watch more of her.

    3.  I LOVE SWIMMING!  I get so into it.  I'm on the edge of my seat.  I'm standing.  I'm cheering them on as if they can hear me & WILL move that much faster.  Oh, so much fun to watch!

    4.  Micheal Phelps is not only great at swimming, he's great at casting evil spells with his eyes.  So scary!  I wonder if he was listening to some Slipknot or DevilDriver on those big headphones.

    5.  The names David Boudia & Steele Johnson are two of the coolest names I've ever heard!  I just want to have a baby boy to name him Steele Boudia.  You think I'm kidding...I am not.  Tee hee!

    6.  I love Lilly King!  When she shook her finger at Yulia Efimova, I fell in love.  She was just letting it be known how she feels & how pretty much the rest of the world feels about the cheating Russians being able to still participate in the Olympics.  & then she went & beat Efimova - you go girl!


  1. Thanks for this! LOVE the Olympic spirit!

    1. My sleep has really been limited lately due to the Olympics & that's okay. It's only every four years, so I better enjoy 'em when I have them. :)

  2. We haven't watched much around here, but it's so fun to watch any of the events. Gymnastics and swimming are always hits though!

    1. Aria would probably love to watch the girls in gymnastics. It's just amazing the things that they can do!

  3. I love, love, Lilly King! I just love her straight forward attitude and not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Even better that she kicked that girl's butt! :).

    1. Oh, I was so happy when she beat her. & like, Lilly said, she can win without cheating & that's the mark of a true athlete. Love her!

  4. Totally agree! I love Aly Raisman and my daughter is a huge Steele Johnson fan.

    1. Steele...I mean, he could not have been anything else but an athlete with that name. So cool. :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
