Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics - Schedule and Links


Did you know there are 12 new events for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi? Click on the picture above to see the short videos and links to all things Olympic!

I have always loved figure skating and this year brings us Team Figure Skating for the first time. Featuring teams made up of six skaters – one male, one female, one pair and one ice dance couple. Points will be awarded for each routine and the team with the highest number of aggregate points will win gold. This will be exciting.

Another new sport I will be looking for is the  Ski slopestyle – Men’s and Women’s - 
Skiers combine airs and tricks on a 565m course featuring rails and a variety of jumps before being scored on execution, style, difficulty, variety and progression. I'm a little disappointed that Shaun White has decided not to compete in this so he can concentrate on the half-pipe, but I understand his reasoning!

What are your favorite events in the Winter Games? Let me know in the comment section below. And show your Olympic pride with these items in my addoway store:

As we approach the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, there are alot of fears about security. This is not the first time there have been threats to the success of these events. And sadly, it probably won't be the last. I'll be praying for the safety and success of all the participants and attendees.

Happy New Year 2014

Do you make resolutions for the New Year? It is a tradition that goes back to the ancient Babylonians who made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. 

A 2007 study by Richard Wiseman from the University of Bristol involving 3,000 showed that 88% of those who set New Year resolutions fail, despite the fact that 52% of the study's participants were confident of sucess at the beginning. 

Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in goal setting such as losing a pound a week, instead of saying "lose weight".

Women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends! So here goes - I need to lose one pound every two weeks this year. In order to do this I will keep up with a walking routine every day, and quit snacking with unhealthy foods!



Now is a great time to shop before shipping price increases for 2014.  UPS increased their prices 4.9% for ground shipment on December 30, 2013.  FedEx is also increasing their rates 3.9% starting January 6, 2014.  And the USPS, which is how I normally ship, is increasing their rates an average of 2.4%.


You will find over 750 items in my addoway store, many with free standard shipping. If you need to upgrade your shipping, contact me for rate to your address. I do not have duplicates of most items, so shop today to avoid disappointment!
