As I am sure most of the world did as well, I was overjoyed to watch the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics yesterday! I love the Olympics just as much as the next person, but since we don't have a TV at home, had to look for someone to watch it with! My English friend Holly was a perfect candidate because she was just as excited about the Games as me.
We watched anxiously as the Ceremonies started and were highly impressed. Shame that Queenie didn't really jump out of the helicopter though haha! As the athlete parade begin, we started on our Team GB cupcakes that I'd made for the occasion (carrot cake cupcakes that mm mm good!). We commented like girls do on all of the outfits of the countries, some good some bad. For all the chatter about the US uniforms, I was quite disappointed. The boys looked ok in my opinion but the girls' below-the-knee-length skirt really threw me for a loop. Regardless, we just loved how happy and proud the athletes looked.
We toasted to the Olympic torch lighting with some champagne and were happy to say, Let The Games Begin!
