Good morning, friends. I promise this will conclude my Twitter and blogging ramblings about the 2014 Winter Olympic games but I couldn’t let them go without sharing the favorite moments of the next weeks of competition – especially after sharing favorite wins from the first week. Here’s just a few of the best of team USA Olympics 2014, part 2! Have a look.

Perhaps the two “best” moments from the latter half of the Olympics was seeing the wonderful talents of Meryl Davis and Charlie White bring home the gold as well as the two-man bobsled team of Steve Holcomb and Steven Langton bring home a medal making Olympic history while doing so. Though I didn’t watch it, it was fantastic to also hear that the young 18-year-old American skier (Mikaela Shiffrin) take home a gold, and of course, to watch Ted Ligety earn a win. Also exciting is Alex Deibold’s win; especially in a sport that is SO unpredictable (snowboard cross). I’m be remiss not to mention the excitement the American’s gave us when they won the first gold medal’s in new sports (like new snowboarding events – Jamie Anderson and Sage Kotsenburg – or the skiing disciplines) and finally, while they didn’t medal, I’m excited to now be “in the know” of who is a rising star in women’s figure skating – cannot wait to see two or all three of these women make a splash four years from now.
No matter what, I’m super proud of the athletes that represented the red, white and blue! Go, team USA!
