I would still vote for the battery, it may have a good static charge, but not retain enough current at start to turn the engine over. I would first try to jumper her and see if that works. or with engine off, hook a volt meter up between B+ post and ground and take a reading (should see at least 12 VDC) then with the volt meter still hooked up, have someone try to crank her over and watch the volt meter and if she drops much below 12 VDC, then the battery is not well.

don't forget to check out your alternator, bad alternator does not charge your battery while car is running, eventually your battery dies; car doesnt' start; happened to me.
