Sooo, is anyone else really excited to watch the Olympics opening ceremonies tonight? Sure, sure. Technically the festivities are already over in Russia time, but I live in New York time so I’m still living in the glory of the anticipation. The weather here is certainly beyond wintery (another 2+ feet and counting since last night) so it seems appropriate tonight to bunker down inside in front of the television and watch the athletes do their parade thing. Also, if I never have to shovel again it will be too soon. So, basically, I’m going to leave you with a few last minute Olympics party ideas (perfect for tonight or any evening during the games) and a handful of favorite links from the week and then, you know, go shovel. Because that’s how I do. Happy Friday, friends! xoxo
For the record, I’m ‘fessing up right now. I have no idea if either the Moscow Mule or the White Russian have anything to do with Russia whatsoever (aside from the vodka), but I don’t care. Because I’m cheeky like that and I still think they make the perfect cocktails for an Olympics party. Paired with cookies and cake, of course.[Ski mountain cake | Drink stirrers | Moscow mule | Olympic ring cookies | Gold medal cookies | White Russian.]
