Favorite athletic activity of the week: Meet my new bike, Babs! She was my birthday gift from Le Husband and Wednesday night was my first ride. We rode into DC for our kickball game and it was a nice lil ride. I was never interested in biking before I met Le Husband but since he's an avid biker I figured I'd jump on that train. It was a lil nerve racking driving on the roads for the first time, but it was pretty cool biking through the nation's capitol. Babs and my new helmet kept me safe and I admit I'm ready for my next ride. #yaynewtoys #yaynewworkout #heybabs
Favorite athletic event of the week: I know I already blogged about this on Monday, but watching the USA Women's National Team play in the Women's World Cup at the bar on Monday night was so awesome. I love soccer [duh] and the World Cup [double duh] and it was fun enjoying the game with other avid fans. Even though we lost power due to a crazy monsoon, it was a great evening, especially when the US scored. Man, I love sports!
Favorite art activity of the week: Tuesday night Babyspice and I went to the Kennedy Center to witness the breathtaking Don Quixote performed by the Royal Ballet. Babyspice bought me tickets for my birthday and it was probably one of the best presents ever. I'd never seen Don Quixote but now I'm a convert. The ballet was gorgeous and the colors and dancing and costumes were divine. Seriously a kaleidoscope of fabulous for all the senses. If you ever have the chance to see the Royal Ballet set the date, make the plans and spend the money, because it is SO WORTH IT!
Such a fun night with Babyspice. I always love going to the Kennedy Center. #girlsnightout

Favorite funnies and links of the week:
+ This tragic obituary made me so sad.
+Holly Madison's new book comes out this month and this week she shared there was a time she thought about committing suicide at the Playboy mansion. Even with all the parties and the free stuff she wasn't happy. I'm glad she got out and is in a better place now.
+ Fun USA Women's soccer article!
+ I've never been shy about my lack of grammar knowledge, so I loved this post by A Lady Goes West.
I hope that y'all have a great weekend. I have a fun birthday dinner tonight, plus the USA's WWC game at 8pm [you better watch, y'all] and then a chilltastic weekend in my future. I seriously can't wait to get some sleep! Make today awesome, bunnies! < 3
