As a host of Olympic hopefuls representing the United States at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games continued acclimating to life in Russia on Feb. 2, several took time to tweet snapshots and observations from Sochi, giving fans a unique glimpse into mundane details of the dreams they're living out.

Track star turned bobsled push athlete Lolo Jones had plenty to say. Before she commented on the cost of a new 'do at the village salon, tweeting "I spent 2,000 Roubles at the salon today. A candy bar cost me 25," she expressed interest in the impending opening of the Olympic village McDonalds. After musing about the exact time the 24-hour fast food restaurant would open for business, Jones said she'd "be there at 11:59pm waiting."

Freestyle skier Heidi Kloser talked about her day, sharing "Just got done with our first night of training in #Sochi it was great to see the course and get an idea of things #Olympics #moguls."

Other Olympians posted photos of the sights in Sochi. Bobsled driver Jamie Greubel shared a striking snapshot of the sunset over the Black Sea, while speed skater Jonathan Garcia posted a picture from the village with the caption "Loving this TEXAS weather in Sochi! #Texas #TeamUSA #Sochi2014."

Exploration was the word of the day for some, including Aja Evans, who posted a shot of herself with her bobsled teammates as they took a bike tour around the Olympic venues.

Yet others paid tribute to the Feb. 2 Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. While skeleton athlete Katie Uhlaender expressed her loyalty to Denver, writing "Missin #SuperBowl BBQ @ home w family, but #GoBroncos while I sleep on #blacksea coast @Sochi2014 AND #Merica rocks," short track speed skater J.R. Celski got up early to support Seattle.

The 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia officially begin Feb. 7 with the opening ceremonies.
