Happy Monday everyone!
First of all, I loooooooved the Olympics this year. Something about London, the athletes, it was just 17 days of PURE magic. And last night watching the special features on the U.S. athletes during the closing ceremony had me on the verge of tears. I was especially moved by the total show of GIRL POWER in the Olympics this year, from Missy Franklin to Sanya to Misty and Kerri and the 5 AMAZING Gymnastics ladies, it was a year to celebrate for women. It gets me choked up just thinking about it.
Way to go U.S. and way to go ladies! Thanks for proving that the U.S. isn't just about Teen Mom or Toddlers and Tiaras.(which for the record, I do watch...womp womppp)
But my world was ROCKED by the Spice Girls in all their glory. 9-year-old Evani was in hysterics, remembering my 5 pairs of platform Sketchers and the endless number of peace signs I raised in all my elementary school photos. If Wannabe isn't a girl power anthem, I don't know what one is?! Sure there's a few nonsensical words thrown in there (zig-a-zig-ah?) but it's all about girls sticking together and how important friendship is between women. How much time do we spend criticizing each other, gossiping or even worse, stealing men from each other?! I think the we need the Spice Girls now, more than ever time to make another CD!!
#PleaseSpiceGirlsPlease, I'm clearly not too proud to beg....
Oh mah gahhh they looked AMAZING: Source
Bravo to London for hosting an amazing Olympic run, truly well done. Do we really have to wait 4 years for the next summer Olympics, how will I survive?!
Thank God Shark Week is up next, it might help me through the mourning process.
Today I decided to link up with one of my favorite blogs, Lovely Little Things. Weekly, Jessica announces a task to help us stop and smell the roses, a.k.a. appreciate the little things! Today's task was to create a collage of things that represent you.
These are all things that I feel define who I am in this point in life! The most important things are on top, definitely with my Family being the biggest part of who I am. The picture of Passions is of my cake pops, and symbolizes my dream of maybe starting my own party/event planning business someday! It might be something I just do on the side for fun or while I pop out babies, but there it is. I have a million other goals in life but it's nice to have a dream that includes what you love to do!
How was your weekend loves? What defines you?
