Too Many Things… So Little Sleep

Happy Friday, ladies. I am so ready for the weekend because this week was a packed one, y'all. I don't think I saw my bed before 11:30pm all week. There were just too many fun events [World Cup, Stanley Cup, Kennedy Center and kickball] to go to bed on time and I paid for it every morning when I got up to do yoga. But, I got up and got after it and here were are at Friday. So, let's rock it out and get to Friday night and some drinks, okay?

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 video of the week: Guuuuuuuuuuuurl, stay sassy!!!! #godiva #arethawouldbeproud

+ How long does it take to get out of shape?

+ 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

I can not wait for Holly's book - I was so in awe of their show with the 3 girls. Such a whole other world to me.

Congrats on your bike.

I adore that little girl - I had to post that video today too.

Cece said...

I LOVE Ballet!! What a perfect girls night out. I still don't have a bike, but I want one. My husband is really into road biking with his friends and while I will never ride with them (30 miles and fast-I don't think so), it's such a fun way to exercise.

Erin LFF said...

You are always having so much fun every week- I love it :) Your enthusiasm for life is contagious!! I saw that mini-Aretha video this week and it made me die laughing, so so cute!

Carolyn said...

Those funnies were definitely needed! :) And what a fun week you had! Ballet, biking and sister time!!! Sign me up! :)

Sarah said...

What a great week! I love the Ballet, but have never been to a live performance before. Have you seen that reality show about the Utah Ballet company? So addicting and CRAZY what dancers have to go through.

Shelby | Recent Somethings said...

Busy - but AMAZING - week, lady! That dog meme cracks me up. So true haha. Happy weekend and rest up! ;)

I love the bike and helmet! And I really want to read Holly Madison's book. I read Kendra Wilkenson's and found it fascinating.

Thanks for linking up with us for H54F!
