Olympic Gymnastics + Dress Shopping + Michael Phelps = Best Night Ever
Posted Aug 01 2012 1:44am
Best night ever: Watching all the aMAYzing female gymnasts doing their Olympic acrobatics and randomly perusing the dress sale on ModCloth during commercials. Sorry, can’t form enough coherent thoughts beyond WOW! to write a decent blog post. Plus I just needed a night to unwind, look at pretty things I can’t afford and not have any anxiety attacks (Which, by the way, I am SO GRATEFUL to all of you who chimed in with empathy, advice and even warnings for me in regards to going gluten free. You are all as smart as you are kind – a rare combo on the Internet! And no, I still haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do. I am discussing my options with my doc, therapist and nutritionist…)
Highlights : Watching Jordyn Wieber NAIL her floor routine, Gabby Douglas OWN the beam and getting to see Aly Raisman’s face mid-leap when she realized she’d just clinched the gold for the U.S. team.
And I’m going to say it was doubly fun because I’d already heard they’d won this morning on the news so I didn’t have to bite my nails and try to mentally tally tenths of a point until my brain exploded. Apparently I like spoilers.
Watching Michael Phelps win gold and become the most decorated Olympic athlete ever was also pretty cool.
