Rock On, USA!




So proud of our athletes at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver – they rock! Shaun White, AKA “The Flying Tomato,” won gold in the half-pipe competition, while queen of the mountain Lindsey Vonn took gold in the downhill competition.

Have you been watching the Olympics? What’s your favorite competition? Hubby likes to ski, so we’ve been watching the downhill races. Miss E. is in awe of figure skating, so we try to catch that, too. I’m fascinated with curling, so I try watch that every chance I get (no, not really).

As usual, I’m going to steer this discussion toward fashion. I LOVED the USA teams’ official uniform for the opening ceremonies, designed by Ralph Lauren. And how cute were those moose hats? Not sure if I would pay $75 for them, but they were super-cool.

Have a great Thursday, everyone. We’re supposed to get more snow in this region between now and early next week, because we just haven’t gotten enough already. ;)

Good morning! Where did you see the hat on sale? I went to the polo website, but didn't see it there. My hubby REALLY wants one, and I thought it would be a fun surprise. Not that I want to pay $75 for it though...
Thanks!

I've loved watching the Olympics! Especially Vonn and White.

Also, I LOVED the RL hat that Vonn wore-- but for $95, I have to pass!
