Swimming and more

Posted on August 5, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I never posted last week about how the FINA Swimming World Championships were happening.  But I watched every single minute of it that I could and followed along on Twitter during the week for live updates on who won what race.  Team USA did incredibly well and was led by two teenage girls, Missy Franklin and Katie Ledecky.   Everybody expected them to do well in Barcelona, but it was incredible to watch them really kick ass.  Missy Franklin came home with 6 gold medals – more than any other women at a world championships or Olympics and Katie Ledecky came home with 4 gold medals and two world records!!  Amazing!   Katie Ledecky is from the Washington, D.C. area and I would even venture to say she’s a neighbor of mine (I’m not stalking her).  I ran into her at Wagshal’s in April and I shamelessly asked for a picture!

Women’s Distance World Champion/World Record Holder and me 🙂

Counting down to 3 years on Rio for the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics!

Justin and I went to Ikea on Sunday to find a new bed for our guestroom, we settled on the Nyvoll bed that I had been eyeing online and came home with a few other random items like napkins and a new striped blanket!   Its impossible for me to leave there with something completely random from the marketplace.

This weekend I also said goodbye to one of my very favorite collections.  My nalgenes from the last 10 years. These bottles took up an entire shelf in a closet and aside from being a very lovely collection of colors and some stickers, I just have no use for them.  I am currently hooked on Camelbak and Klean Kanteen exclusively and probably haven’t used a Nalgene in 5 years.  I had to line up all the bottles for one last photo before I put them in the recycling bin.   Justin thinks I’m crazy.  I’m just a little sentimental!!



Happy Monday!
