Team USA Uniform. Yea or Nay? I kind of thought we’d already had the discussion about the logo on the uniforms, but that was apparently the made in China discussion. The sweater’s wool is from an Oregon sheep farm in Oregon, spun in PA, dyed in NC, and sewn in CA.

The prices are completely outrageous of course. This hat is $95.


And then there’s the Norwegian Curling Team. I love how they are really really not trying to be everything to everybody. This is definitely an Olympic statement wardrobe choice.


Friday Sales!

Living Social is 14% off with code VDAY14 through 1/26!

Did you see this Erin Condren sale? The tray plus all the other stuff = 40% off! The candles are back BOGO too. I have the medium tray just like that and it’s gorgeous. The only bummer is that the upgrade to the large size tray isn’t also 40% off. I worked my BUTT OFF organizing yesterday. I reached my limit. And I spent hours and hours and hours organizing. Cleaning up the living room, reorganizing in there, collating all the craft supplies strewn all over the house. Organizing all the craft supplies. And finally, adding a little organization to my samples collection! I’m going to put up a separate post soon!

I also cried like a baby watching Parenthood last night. Seriously. Real tears. And then they were all like NEW EPISODES FEBRUARY 27. THANKS OLYMPICS (no but seriously I’m excited!).

      My husband has one just like it. Different colors etc but it does have reindeer! It’s totally ridiculous but he wears it all the time!!

    The outfits are indeed interesting. I actually kind of like them. They remind me a bit of Norwegian sweaters, actually. I guess I just love lots of prints and colors and things going on.

      Others have described it as an illicit affair between an ugly Christmas sweater and the American flag. 🙂
