five on friday


we leave tomorrow on a trip to belgium and to london to attend the olympics and to visit with friends and family. we have tickets to see soccer, beach volleyball, and judo. i love the olympics and cannot wait though i have no idea what judo is. as a former swimmer the idea of being anywhere near the energy and excitement of the world's top athletes competing for their country has me giddy. i haven't been in london since 2006 and i am also just looking forward to enjoying the city again (though it will be a different city entirely). i am almost as excited about the games as i am about eating here.

posting will be sparse, possibly non-existent so i wish you all a wonderful couple of weeks and i can't wait to share our trip with you when we return. until then here are five things that caught my eye this week.
