Britney Spears Pic(s) of the Week
I Wanna Go

Lately I've been stuck imaginin'
What I wanna do and what I really think
Time to flow out

Be a little inappropriate
Cause I know that everybody's thinkin' it
When the lights out

Lately people got me all tied up
There's a countdown waiting for me to erupt
Time to blow out

I've been told who I should do it with
To keep both my hands above the blanket
When the lights out

Shame on me
To need release

Hump Day Hottie
Robert Downey Jr.

It's Wednesday, kids. You know what that means!

The bestie and I are often told we share a brain. We tend to like all the same things. Today's person of honor is one thing we disagree on. I think Robert Downey Jr. is hot stuff. She does not. I know. She be crazy.

So, whose side are you on?

Does RDJ do it for you?

What I Wore Wednesday

I went to see New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys with my girls last week. Before the concert, I had to shop for an outfit. Could I have worn something in my closet? Absolutely. Did I want to wear something in my closet? No. What’s the fun in that? So, I bought the shirt at one store, the shorts at another and the shoes from a third place. Snap!

Once the outfit was purchased, I had to work on my tan. I knew I was in danger of looking super pale in white shorts. I can say with certainty that I haven’t worn white shorts since high school. I was out of my comfort zone, but feel like I pulled off a tan at the last minute. Thank you, Mystic Tan!

I took the day off so I could rest and have plenty of time to get ready. These things are important. Am I right, ladies? Trying to get ready with two children in the house isn’t easy, but I managed to pull this off as well. I met up with the girls at the bestie’s house.

Before heading out, we had to take pictures. Lots and lots of pictures! The bestie’s bro was our photographer. I think he did a great job. Don’t you?

Top - T.J. Maxx
Shorts - Express
Shoes - Rue 21
Jewelry - Forever 21

I never got to see New Kids on the Block when I was a kid. I’ve been making up for it big time as an adult. This was my second NKOTB concert in recent years. I was never a big Backstreet Boys fan, but pretty much knew all of the words to their songs too. We had an amazing time. All of the guys put on a great show. I sang. I danced. I screamed. I may have even drooled a little. Have you seen Donnie’s abs?!

We had excellent seats. I wish the pictures and videos had turned out better, but they were taken with my phone. Next time, I’m calling ahead to see if cameras are allowed. We assumed they wouldn’t be, but they were. Live and learn…

If NKOTB, BSB or NKOTBSB ever come to Memphis again, you can bet I’ll be there. And next time, we’re hitting up the Waffle House with the boys after the show.

It was hard to narrow the videos down to just two or three.

Here's a whole bunch!

This one of Jordan is like my most favorite one ever.

I used to listen to this song over and over again.

If you hear some hick girl screaming
and/or singing in the background...
It's not me.
I repeat.
It's not me.

The Talk of Tinseltown
Two Tickets to the Gun Show

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz wed quietly last week in New York. The two had been dating for less than a year. How cute are they?

George Clooney ended his relationship with Elisabetta Canalis two weeks after she told an Italian magazine she was going to marry him. If there's one thing George has been clear about, it's that he doesn't want to get married again. Two Words: Dumb Bitch

By now, I'm sure you all know that Ryan Dunn from Jackass was killed in a horrible car accident. It's been reported that his blood alcohol content was nearly two-and-a-half times the legal limit in Pennsylvania. This is a tragedy for all involved, but I would like to take this opportunity to say... Don't drink and drive. Don't let others drink and drive. If you know someone is impaired and planning to drive, intervene.

Peter Falk, best known for his role as tv's Columbo, passed away at the age of 83. I can't remember who in my family watched Columbo, but I definitely remember seeing it as a kid. Before Peter became an actor, he was a merchant marine and earned both bachelor's and master's degrees.

I think Jennifer Aniston really wants to shed her good girl image. First, she's dating a guy unlike any guy she's dated before. Second, she supposedly stole him from another woman. Third, she got a tattoo. She tattooed her dog's name on the inside of her foot after he recently passed. That's sweet and all, but... Slow down, Angelina Jr.!

Lindsay Lohan failed an alcohol test and refused to take two drug tests. She won't be sent back to jail though. According to the judge, Lindsay wasn't required to take tests after a certain date. So, any tests after this date have been thrown out. She's still on house arrest and isn't allowed to have anymore parties. She can only have one visitor at a time now. I don't know why this rule wasn't already in place. We all know this girl has poor judgment.

The Rock smuggled two guns into Splash Mountain.

Hump Day Hottie(s)
True Blood

This week's Hump Day Hottie post is dedicated to one of my all-time favorite shows, True Blood. The fourth season starts this Sunday. The Hero and I don't watch a lot of tv together. He's usually at work, or doesn't want to watch my girly hospital shows. This is one show we can agree on. It's crazy good and super hot. The actors are phenomenal. The storylines never disappoint. The only thing I hate is waiting a week between each show. It's hard enough waiting between seasons. Eric is my absolute favorite, but I love Sam, Jason and Alcide too. Just call me a supernatural whore.

Sookie + Bill

Lafayette + Alcide

Bill + Eric

Arlene, Hoyt + Jessica

Sheriff Eric

Sookie + her vampire friends

Sam + Jason

Jessica + Pam

Sookie Stackhouse

Jason + Tara + Sam

Bestest Show Ever

Who's your fave True Blood hottie?

If your prom dress could talk,
what would it say?

My prom dress would say...

I knew we'd be fast friends when you tried me on.

I was ready to slap your boyfriend when he told you he couldn't attend half the night's festivities. Lifeguard training, really?

I take that back. I hated he left the news on your answering machine because he was too chicken to say it in person.

I love that you paired us with Chinese Laundry shoes and put chopsticks in your hair.

I wasn't happy when you had to get in that tiny car with your girlfriends because your boyfriend couldn't drive you there.

I was really unhappy when you ripped me getting into the car. Twice.

Don't blame me. You picked me, knowing I had a dangerous slit up the front.

You put safety pins in me, at the suggestion of others, when you arrived.

You quickly realized how dumb this was and threw caution to the wind.

Literally, there was wind. That's how ridiculous the slit had become.

You rocked that slit like nobody's business though.

Seriously, you had awesome legs.

Anyway, you rocked the place. Everyone noticed.

And not just because you were this close to flashing your girly bits.

You looked awesome. We looked awesome.

You had dinner. You took pictures with your friends.

Eventually, that man of yours showed up.

You met him in the parking lot.

His tux was fly.

His hair was slicked back.

You smiled so big I thought your face was going to crack.

I'm glad it didn't. That wouldn't have been pretty.

You forgot all about the unnecessary lifeguard training that kept him away.

He put your corsage on and escorted you inside.

He was proud. I could tell.

The two of you danced and danced and danced some more.

I know your feet hurt.

Those were, what, six inch heels?

I don't know how you did it.

I remember you got really excited when the DJ played Brass Monkey at your request.

I never understood that. But, what can I say? I'm just a dress.

There may have been line dancing, but I won't tell if you don't tell.

When prom was over, you drove around for a bit.

If memory serves me, you stopped for water at a gas station.

You kids sure were thirsty.

You stopped by a couple after parties, but didn't stay long.

The two of you talked in the car for a while then he took you home.

Your parents cracked a few jokes at my expense.

You ripped your dress getting into the car? Yeah, right!

Overall, it was a great experience.

And you stayed a virgin on prom night.

Way to go!

Last, but not least, thanks for keeping me.

With a little needle and thread, I'll be good as new.

Maybe Little Bit can wear me one day.

I promise I'll take good care of her too.

Project 52
Update #4

I slacked off for a while, but I should finally be able to get some things crossed off my list now that summer is here. Speaking of summer, the temps have been hovering around 100 most days. I may need a nudge or two to get outside for some of these.

1. Read 30 books. (12/30)
Now that my shows are on hiatus, I've been able to read a lot more. I've read five books in the last couple of weeks.

Torn, Amanda Hocking - 3 out of 5 stars
Dead to the World, Charlaine Harris - 4 out of 5 stars
Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me, Chelsea Handler - 3.5 out of 5 stars
Ascend, Amanda Hocking - 4 out of 5 stars
The Final Testament of the Holy Bible, James Frey - 3 out of 5 stars

If you'd like to keep up with what I'm reading, you can follow me on Goodreads.

2. See 8 movies in the theater. (4/8)
I saw two more movies in the theater so I'm halfway there, people. First, I saw Fast Five. I've seen each movie in the franchise. The first is my favorite, but the new one comes in a close second. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese, and The Rock? Seriously, I would have watched even if it were a silent film. You know what I mean?

I also saw The Hangover II. Was it as funny as the first one? I'm thinking not. Was is still really really funny? Absolutely. I laughed out loud numerous times. There's a couple of one-liners I'll probably never forget. Overall, I did not leave the theater disappointed.

What is this? A P.F. Chang's?

I wish monkeys could Skype.

I am a nurse. I'm just not registered.

No, he said I’m farting because of my medication.

He’s got a banana on his helmet. This guy’s the real deal.

I don’t understand what’s going on. Is this some sort of magic show?

Your password is bologna one?
Well, it used to be just bologna. Now they make you add numbers!

There’s a demon in me.
It’s true, he has semen in him.
I said demon.
You also have semen in you, remember?

19. Watch 20 movies from my Netflix queue. 9/20
I'm on a roll with at-home movie watching.

We all know how much I love Adam Sandler. Grown Ups wasn't a waste of two hours, but it's not a movie I plan to watch over and over again. I was expecting Couples Retreat to be hilarious since it got great reviews. I didn't even finish it. It wasn't funny at all. I also felt lukewarm about Get Him to the Greek which also got great reviews. I love Russell Brand, but I just didn't laugh that much. I mostly thought it was stupid.

I watched The Ugly Truth, which didn't get great reviews, but I really liked it. Katherine Heigl is a little annoying, but Gerard Butler is quite lickable likeable. The story was cute. I laughed a lot. It's not the best romantic comedy out there, but it's definitely worth a watch. I hadn't heard much about Dear John before I watched it. I've never been a big Channing Tatum fan, but I'll admit I may have changed my mind. I get it now. This movie is like a cheapened version of The Notebook though. The story wasn't half bad. I didn't want to turn it off or anything. It's just... Well, the ending sucked. Don't you hate it when you get invested in a film and end up wanting to throw things at the tv when it's over? It's totally one of those.

The last two were definitely my favorites. Easy A with Emma Stone was hilarious. This one is fun, quirky and extremely entertaining. I can see myself watching it again and again. Last, but not least, we have Remember Me with Mr. Rob Pattinson. I liked it for obvious reasons. {Jaw Porn} I loved the story and the characters. What I didn't love was the ending. I had heard it was shocking, but I totally wasn't prepared for that.

27. Go to the zoo at least 3 times during the summer months. 1/3
The kids and I went to the zoo with friends Memorial Day weekend. The Memphis Zoo has special 'members only' events a couple of times a year. This was our third year in a row to attend this particular event. There's music, entertainment and free rides. The kids had an absolute blast. We stopped at McDonald's on the way home. Both kids were asleep before they finished their nuggets.

7. Be bikini ready by May 1 June 1.
Even though my body isn't where I'd like it to be, I'm marking this one off the list. I tried on and purchased a bikini. I didn't cry. I wore it in front of other people. I didn't cry. Success!

31. Potty train Little Bit.
We're getting there. She has done #1 and #2 in the potty one time each. We still have a ways to go, but I think diapers will be a thing of the past very soon.

How are you coming along on your 2011 plans?
