Officially obsessed with the Beijing Olympics

I love the Olympics! I cannot get enough of these games. We watched all the coverage from beginning to end all weekend. The weekend started with a magical opening ceremony and ended with one of the best swimming races in the history of the Olympics. Our boys brought home the Gold! Take that Frenchies...the French were talking too much before and couldn't think about talking at the end. USA's last swimmer, Lezak, was behind, but with his drive, devotion, and Phelps screaming at the top of his lungs PULLED OFF THE WIN! Eric and I were yelling at the TV with excitement. It was truely amazing...I love swimming and these games...must add Phelps to my loves too, hehe. I cannot wait to get home to watch the live coverage tonight. If you haven't watched, just turn on your tube and you will soon become addicted. GO USA!

Confessions of a CF Husband!

I have to admit...I am a BLOG STALKER! I love reading about other's people's lives and not only learning from them, but just admiring them at the same time. I found Nate's blog through Cara's blog (who is from Katy, however, I have never met her, just stalk her Blog, hehe, but she knows that I do, so it's ok!). Cara and Nate's wife live their lives with Cystic Fibrosis. I have to admit I NEVER knew much about CF until I began reading their blogs, as well as others CF'ers. CF is an illness that is not curable (YET!) and many CF'ers have to undergo a lung transplant in their lifetime. So, onto the point of this blog...Nate's wife, Tricia, has an unbelievable, miraculous, every adjective available story and I want you to read about them. They are trying to raise money not only for CF, but Lymphoma too! Please take a few minutes to read their story, it truely is AMAZING (WARNING: You will probably shed a few tears, as I do EVERYTIME I read it). Give a $1 to help find a cure!
