Olympic Overload

Are you devouring the Olympics? I certainly am. What could be better than swimming (and swimmers ;-) and gymnastics in my favorite international city? Add a lot of strength, bit of grace,  some elation and heartbreak, and it equals some dramatic television.

Oh, and did you catch the nail polish on the American female swimmers? Totes adorbs!

So today I'm sharing some glimpses of the festivities. Enjoy!

  1. I want to see the picture of the nail polish! :)

    1. Of course I can't find any of U.S.women. But here's the Aussie team:

      Here's a better shot of the nails, but I think she's French:

      I'll keep looking for the U.S.

      They're all the same colors, though. I just might show up Saturday with red, white and blue nails!

  2. Love the incredible moments of olympics. Rings on Tower Bridge are awesome. xo
