Olympic Fever!

Posted on June 25, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Happy Start of the Swimming Olympic Trials!!!   The Trials begin today in Omaha, NE and run through July 2.  The finals are on live at 8 pm every night!  Tonight we will get to watch both the men’s and women’s 400 IM and the men’s 400 free finals.   I have been stalking the USA Swimming website all morning to see who has qualified for the finals.  Ryan Lochte is ahead of Michael Phelps by 4 seconds – cannot wait to watch them race tonight!!!

I am definitely in full on Olympic spirit.  I didn’t watch any of the track trials this weekend, but I did read this article today and can’t believe these two ladies will likely have a run off at the end of the trials!

All weekend I was patiently awaiting Monday to get here so I could silently or not so silently obsess over the swimming events today and then watch tonight!

I still did enjoy the weekend.  Justin and I went to dinner at Ris on Saturday night. I’ve been wanting to try it out since it opened and glad Justin suggested we check it out.  Justin started with a grilled octopus salad. I tried a few of the greens and it was perfectly light and lemony.  I ordered two kinds of cheese to start, but they were nothing special – they were just like my selection of Whole Foods cheeses, I should have just gotten a salad or tried one of the small plates for something more interesting.

For dinner, I had the veal with risotto and broccoli rabe, a special for the evening.  It was tasty, had good flavor.  Was a tiny bit fatty, but that’s probably the nature of the meat, I had no trouble eating it all.

We finished the night with a fave of Justin’s, the butterscotch pudding.  I probably would not have chosen it, but it turned out to be fantastic because of the little cocoa crisps that were sticking out of it – not to mention the whipped cream was divine!

In a previous Five Things Friday post, I mentioned this dress, well I did end up buying it and I LOVE it!

It is the perfect weekend dress and so comfortable.  Online it looks much more yellowy than it does in person, but it’s still a great color.  I actually kind of want to buy another…red/gray, maybe?  Or blue and white with some red for the Olympics – that would be my dream dress right now.

Happy Swimming Trials Viewing/Stalking!!!
