Tuesday Ten - Link Party

Hey sweet peas!
It's Tuesday, and I was perusing some blogs and saw a link party over at
Miss Mommy's blog.

She says to post a list of 10 anything.  10 favourite books, 10 favourite pics on Pinterest.
It's a great way to get to know each other better.

My Tuesday 10 is my 10 Favourite Movies.
I thought this might be a tough one, to come up with 10 movies that I love.
But surprisingly it wasn't.
Most of these are movies that I could watch over and over and never get tired of.
Here they are in no particular order!  This is going to be long-winded.

1. Legally Blonde - a fun escape, as you may or may not know, I love Reese Witherspoon. For whatever reason, this movie makes me smile and it always brightens my mood.  She is just so happy and good.

2. Practical Magic - I like the sisterly bond in this movie

3. 50 First Dates - SO hilarious.  Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.  One of my faves.  I saw this movie in the theater a few weeks after my twin babies were born.  It was my first night out since their birth and it was so free-ing to be out!  I also sobbed like a baby at the end when she comes up from below the boat deck.....ugh, it still gets me.  In a really good way though!

4. The Sound of Music - I always used to watch this on Christmas Eve when I was a teenager.  My sister and I would sleep in the basement and make a big comfy bed out of sleeping bags and pillows.  It would start around midnight and I'd only make it about an hour and then I'd fall asleep.  I finally bought it so I can watch it whenever I like.  But to this day it reminds me of the wonderful feeling of Christmas Eve.

5.  Some Like it Hot - Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.  I was never an old movie fan but in University I took a Film class and we watched all sorts of 'interesting' movies.  This was one of the better ones and I fell in love with it.  It's funny and innocent and cute and I still love it to this day.  Highly recommend it!

Let's take a break...I feel the need to you can see, I like happy, girly, fun movies.  Since I had babies, I sincerely cannot stand to watch anything too serious.
Especially if it involves kids in a negative way.
(I read The Lovely Bones after my twins were born and it scarred me for life...great book, bad timing, I can't see the movie and probably never will).

I used to tease my Mom about how she couldn't stand to watch violent movies.  Well, I'm eatin' crow now!
I get it, Mom. : )

Ok, back to the list!

6.  Life is Beautiful - Ok one exception to what I just finished telling you.  This movie was amazing and yes I sobbed for an hour after (father and son in a concentration camp....can you imagine how that affected me?!)  This is one I don't watch over and over.  But it is exactly as the title suggests, beauty amongst something so ugly.

7. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - oh how I love this movie!  Honestly!  It is a must for me each and every Christmas.  It puts me in the Christmas spirit, it's just not Christmas without watching this movie!  I laugh every single year.  Yes, I own it.  Classic.

8.  To Kill a Mockingbird - this is another movie I can't really watch over and over but it was such a great movie, another classic.  I really love Gregory Peck (and Cary Grant she says randomly, he's not in this one) so really, any movie with them will do.  I really am not an old movie fan, but these two guys were real movie stars!

9.  The Holiday - I really like Cameron Diaz, Something About Mary is another good one I like to watch now and again.  The Holiday is one that I like to watch as I curl up on my couch on a snowy winter day with a cup of chai latte and my favourite pillow and blankie.  The movie just feels like a warm, cozy blanket.  And I swoon over that 'tent' in the girl's room...

10. The Hangover - aaahhh betcha didn't see that one coming did ya?!  I had no desire whatsoever to see this movie.  But when my hubby and I watched it, I was a fan.  I laughed so hard, and it was such a surprise.  Love those crazy boys!

Do you have a favourite movie you could watch over and over?
