new girl crush Minka Kelly

I'm in CA where it's warm, sunny, and where my love is. I couldn't be happier except for when it decides to rain. Seriously - how dare the rain appear in sunny CA! BK & I have been relaxing, eating yummy food, and yesterday we ate our lunch at the beach! It was nice to soak up some sun and get away during our work day. I admit this is something I love the most about being a freelancer - me being able to get away for a longer
lunch than normal!

I've had a girl crush on Minka Kelly for a while now.
Have you heard of her? She's a 31 year old actress from Los Angeles, CA who originally was going to be a surgical technician before getting hooked on acting. She's gorgeous, a single mom, and you also may know her originally from Friday Night Lights. That's where my girl crush began. I loooved her chemistry with Taylor Kitsch on the show and was a little bitter when the producers didn't get them back together at the very last episode. Perhaps Minka didn't want to appear on the last show? I'm not sure, but I miss them together!!
If I could have chosen the kind of romance that I wanted in High School I would have had Lyla & Tim's romance. It was hot, sexy, and he was the bad guy and she was the good girl. She managed to change his ways a bit - but he still stayed good ol' Tim Riggins.

I had no idea that Minka's dad was the lead guitarist Rick Dufay from Aerosmith and her mom was a show girl in Las Vegas. Maybe that is where she gets her exotic looks! Recently Minka has started to play in bigger roles such as The Kingdom, The Roommate (I have seen neither), and in the closing scene of 500 Days of Summer. I didn't care for 500 Days of Summer but that closing scene with Minka (without giving away the plot) makes me want to watch the movie again. I loved how they seamlessly weaved that love story in at the last minute. Currently they are filming Charlie's Angels, a TV movie which she is set to star in.

But moving on - let's look at some amazing pictures of Minka!
 I'm secretly hoping that Minka will grab some huge roles in the coming years in bigger films. She's such a gorgeous actress and I hope that producers recognize her talent!

Well I better get back to working and then having some fun with BK!
I hope you all have an amazing weekend.
