{Friday Loves}

Happy, Happy Friday!!! This week flew by, thank goodness!
Here are some things I am loving this week....
1.  Kate Hudson
I have always been a big fan but holy moly, I think she looks the best she has ever looked and I am so happy she is coming back to TV and movies! Did you see her on Glee last night?  LOVED it!

2.  My new May Books!
I bought the 2012-2013 calendar and one with lined pages for notes.
I also think these are great for gifts! 
3.  New Baked Lemon Shrimp Recipe
I made this on Monday night and it was DELISH!  Another Pinterest recipe success!
- 2 Large Lemons
- 1 LB of shrimp, peeled and rinsed
- Butter  ( I used 1/4 of a cup but the original recipe called for way more)
- 2 TBSP's minced garlic
- Italian Seasoning
What to do-
- Line a shallow pan with foil.  Slice lemons and lay out flat all over foil.  Place shrimp on top of lemons.  Melt butter in bowl and stir in minced garlic.  Pour mixture over shrimp & lemons.  Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning.
Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. 
4.   2 New Books I Read
- My Reality by Melissa Rycroft
Easy, cute read about what lead her to go on The Bachelor, her time on the show, the heartbreak she went thru when Jason dumped her in from of millions of people for someone else, and her life since the show, with her husband and baby girl.  This was not a page turner or anything spectacular but it was cute and cool to her all the inside info about The Bachelor and DWTS. 
- Love Unscripted by Tina Reber
I am not done with this book but I am LOVING it so far.  It is similar to Beautiful Disaster, Thoughtless and other books in that category.

5.  My latest Old Navy dress! Love all of their Fall clothes :)
I have a white scarf and brown knee high boots that I plan on wearing with it as soon as it gets a little cooler!

And on a side note...let's discuss Britney Spears.  I am a HUGE Britney fan.  Yes, she has gone a little crazy the past few years and she may lip sing most of the time but if you have ever seen her in concert you know what an amazing performer she is. 
BUT.... I have watched the last 2 nights of The X Factor and I have a few complaints....

1.  She looks old.
2.  I can't stand the way she claps.  Pay attention next week, it will drive you crazy too.
3.  She needs to fire her makeup artist and hire a new one.

I still love her and love her as a judge but she definitely needs some help in the style/makeup department.
I am afraid she will never be the old "pre-breakdown" Britney :(  

What do you think??

Have a happy weekend!!

YAY! Love Unrehearsed came out today! And it's already on my Kindle waiting for me to get off work today! (Although, I think I need to go back and read the last few chapters of Love Unscripted first)

I need to read those books! And try that recipe immediately :)

And a big HECK YES to everything you said about Britney. Also - her cringing constantly drives me nuts. Eek.
