The adorable Noor unofficially tagged me for this one. Meaning she tagged no one specifically (as I am prone to do) and I decided that it looked like fun! After all, I had to find some way to include the Olympics on my blog ;)

Answer the Olympics themed questions (feel free to add your own)
That's a no-brainer. USA!!! When we have no competitors, I vote for the home team or Great Britain (and all its derivative countries).
If you could compete in an event, what would it be?
Probably volleyball or shooting. Or trampoline or equestrian. Not that I'm that great at any of those sports, but I enjoy all of them :)
Favorite event to watch?
Volleyball, gymnastics, and swimming. My mom and cousin have played volleyball and I love our women's teams this year. Gymnastics because how?! And, again, I love our women's team so much! Swimming has become a more recent favorite of mine. We have so many great swimmers whether they're veterans or up and coming. So fun to see them compete! I also like that this is usually a briefer sport.
Olympian you most admire?
Hmm. Probably Kerri Walsh Jennings, the beach volleyball player. I love that she juggles being a Mom and athlete, and she's amazing to watch play. Of course, Michael Phelps is downright amazing and wears the half cocky/half sweet personality well
What sports do you currently play?
Hahaha. Yeah. I don't play any sports. Never have, actually. I can hardly swim, can't ride a bike, and have terrible balance when walking on level ground, so . . . not all that athletic. Although I do make a great shortest person addition to a basketball team as long as you want me to keep the ball and not actually get it in the hoop ;) If I picked a sport to enter, it would be volleyball.
Summer or Winter Olympics?
Summer. They have so many more sports and I enjoy watching most of the ones they show on NBC. I really only like skating and snowboarding in winter.
Ever been to see the Olympics in person?
No. It would be cool, though. I totally would have attended when it was in Calgary.
A sport that should be in the Olympics?
Ice sculpting for the winter, because they need more sports. Or igloo building. For the summer, baking. I would enjoy watching cook-offs. Of course, I think writing should be an Olympic sport, too, but all viewers would die of boredom :/
What do you think would be going through your head right before you were about to compete in the Olympics?
Extreme awe and terror. The "I'm here" (shock) and "I'm here" (death) feelings.
My question: If you could choose a location for the Olympics, what would it be?
I would choose New Zealand, because it's drop dead gorgeous and unique. I don't know any cities there, so wherever works :)
I tag those of you who do not live in the United States. Off the top of my head, I know that means Emily Mundell and Grace Osas. Anyone else who would like to, go for it! :)
I sincerely hope you are all being more productive than me right now. These Olympics are sooo distracting!
