Vancouver 2010!!!

The cute little Whistler Village was FULL of excitement about the 2010 Olympics! Lots of the skiing events will actually take place in Whistler, and the souvenir shops were all brimming with Olympic stuff. I wish I could go to Canada for the Winter Olympics, especially since I only live a few hours away! Yes, I know it will be insanely crowded and everything will be insanely expensive and I should want to stay away. But I love being right in the middle of all the excitement! I got to walk around Salt Lake City when they hosted the Winter Olympics in 2002, and it was an unforgettable experience. That city looked amazing, and will never again look more beautiful. I also went to an all-day women's skiing event with my cousin. Fun times!

We had an awesome time in the official Olympics store in Whistler, and got some great pictures!

I just ADORE the Canadian Olympic mascots. Aren't they the cutest? I may or may not have bought a few of the small stuffed animals to take home with me. If you know me well, you'll know that I am a complete sucker for cute stuffed animals. And I wanted to take those giant ones home with me too!

Natalie loved them too! They're bigger than she is!!!


They even had the official countdown to the Olympics!

I really don't like the month of January. . . SO boring, and such a let-down after the excitement of the holiday season. But at least I can be excited for all the awesome TV coming in February! The new season of Lost, Survivor Heroes Vs. Villains, the Bachelor, and the Winter Olympics!!!

Will you be watching the winter Olympics? Which sports are your favorites to watch? I love to record it all on my DVR, so I can fast-forward through all the commercials and the boring sports. My favorites to watch are the figure skating (especially Men's skating and Pairs skating!), Freestyle skiing and snowboarding with all the cool tricks, and downhill skiing.

  1. What fun, to see all that! We're going to a women's hockey game, US versus China. I'm really excited. My kids will probably never remember, but at least they can know they were at the Olympics. There are benefits to being married to a Canadian :)

  4. Oh what fun!
    I also love watching ice-skating, and also the tabagone (spelling?)
    and snowboarding!
    I have never been skiing in my life. I've always been too afraid.
    But I like to watch others enjoy it!
    January is always too quiet! But that is usually when I get in a cleaning mood and do detail cleaning.
    I just started adding country music with my workouts and it is great!
    Have a great year!
    Love always,
    Lisa
