    It's been quite a week and we don't know about you, but we've been counting down! Here's what's been going on this week!!

    1. Happy Anniversary Andy Warhol - It's been 50 years since the artist first painted his famous soup cans. Campbell's recently announced that a limited edition line of Warhol-themed cans will go on sale in early September at most Target locations. We're so excited we might buy multiples.

    2. Cardio Barre - Ready for a new fitness craze? This ballet-inspired workout promises to tone tough spots like triceps and inner thighs. Sounds good to us!

    3. Pretty Places - Zagat's food blog recently released a list of the 10 best-looking restaurants. We have no doubts that the food is good, but we'd be happy to go just to look. They're that beautiful.

    4. StreetGeist Style - Originally based in Athens, Greece, this blog posts photos of street fashion. Now that they've relocated to LA, we're going to have to be extra sure to look our best before going out onto the streets of the City of Angels. Follow the link to see just how cool we Angelinos dress!

    5. A Bike-Friendly Downtown - More people are riding bikes now that cars and gas have leveled out at higher prices. New plans in the downtown area are in the works to establish a better bike path network to make it easier (and safer) to pedal around.

    6. We Are Never Ever Going to Get This Out of Our Heads - Taylor Swift's new song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" is an upbeat pop song about, well, the title is pretty self-explanatory. Currently #1 on the iTunes top ten, it seems like Swift's new album is off to a good start with this catchy single.

    7. Bill Nye - A video of Nye discussing Evolution vs. Creationalism went viral this week. Whether you agree or disagree with the man, it is impressive how many hits the video has gotten. Yes, controversial, but we do love a good bow tie.

    8. Goodbye Jersey Shore - MTV announced that the reality TV show will end after it's 6th season. If you were a loyal fan or just couldn't look away, don't worry. We're sure the DVDs will be available soon.

    9. Robot Animated...Hip Hop? - If you haven't seen Fox's So You Think You Can Dance this season, you might want to tune in. These dancers are INCREDIBLE. One of the most fascinating is Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer, whose unique dance style will have you wondering if he is even from the planet earth. Follow the link to see his audition for the show (and prepare to have your mind blown).

    10. Labor Day! - What could be better than a Monday off? Celebrate this Labor Day with fun recipes for food and drinks!
