First of all can we just take a moment and say a HUGE #TeamUSA cheer right now because the USA is kicking some major butt in Rio right now!! If you follow me on any social media then you know I am a women’s gymnastics fanatic and I was so freaking pumped when USA brought home GOLD in the team event and Simone and Ally placed GOLD and SILVER respectively in the Individual All Around!! And then Simone did it again when she brought home GOLD in the Vault final and Madison snagged a SILVER in uneven bars!! We are literally killing it in women’s gymnastics!! I can’t wait for the Floor and Beam finals, I fully expect USA to medal in those events as well.
I also can’t believe the way Michael Phelps is performing and I just love watching his family cheer him on from the stands…baby Boomer is to-die-for cute!! And Katie Ledecky?? Whoa. Homegirl will definitely be around for a long time to come and I can’t wait to see her swim more!!! #Rio2016 #TeamUSA #Olympics2016
I don’t know about the weather in your part of the country but in Arkansas it has rained for about a week straight. Ugh. Although I can’t really complain about it because that means the temperature has been dropping and it actually felt like fall all day yesterday!!! I even had to break out a jacket to wear at work. I can’t wait for fall and all of it’s pumpkin goodness!!
Remember right before Christmas when I talked about my Varicose Veins? Well, I finally have my follow up appointment today. I had to wear those terrible compression socks for a few months and then I got busy with school and summer and now I finally got it together enough to make an appointment. HA! I can’t wait to meet with my surgeon and get a gam plan together!!
I am rewatching Gilmore Girls from the beginning. I am on season three and I can’t believe how much of it I still remember. I, along with about half of my Facebook friends, cannot wait to see the new Gilmore Girls Revival show (their words, not mine) coming to Netflix in a few months (November 25!!)!! Apparently it will be divided into four 1.5 hour long segments…winter, spring, summer, and fall…and will pick up wherer the show would be now. I am soooo excited…dare I say even Full House level excited?? If you are a GG fan like me then check out the press release here.
Speaking of Netflix, in addition to GG I am also watching Peaky Blinders (1920’s gangster show) and Stranger Things is also on my list to watch! Have you seen either of those??
Book wise I just finished Mary Kay Andrew’s The Weekenders and it did not disappoint!! MKA definitely knows how to throw down some southern chick lit and I can’t wait to read more of her earlier stuff!!
I am going to Ohio later this week and most of next week so I will not be post in ton here as much but I will definitely be on my SnapChat (riccialexis83), Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter if you want to follow along and see what craziness I get myself into!
Have you been watching the Olympics??
Are you as pumped about the Gilmore Girls Revival show as I am??
