And today’s post is one of my favorite topics: CHRISTMAS MOVIES.
And everyone said amen 🙂 .
So, this year, we’ve been stranded on our deserted island with several things. Let’s recap first, shall we?
We’ve been stranded with:
And today, Erika and I are sharing our 3 favorite Christmas movies.
Now, I did a post just like this three years ago, and even though all three of today’s movies are on that post, I have them in a different order now.
If I had to take only three Christmas movies with me to watch over and over again on a deserted island they would be:
A Christmas Story.
You know how on Christmas day, TBS plays A Christmas Story 24 hours in a row. You know how you probably think, who would watch that so many times in a row? The answer is me. I am that person who watches A Christmas Story at least 4 times that day. I. Cannot. Stop. The leg lamp, the tongue to the pole, the air rifle, the mom, the dad, the fudge word…I adore this movie. I am that person.
Now, these next two movies would be my top two…and not just Christmas movies, they rank in my top 5 movies of all time (I’ll put them in order in just a minute for you). I basically watch these two on repeat right now and I’m not even stranded on a deserted island…so, there’s that.
This is one of my favorite movies. Ever. Each and every story line in this movie speaks to me. Now, if you haven’t seen it before, there is some nudity, so be aware. They do also play it on TV a lot edited, so you might want to watch that if you’re worried about the adult content. The brief nudity is really the only part that would make it rated R, so you don’t really have to worry about the language and there’s no violence. All of that to say…GIVE ME ALL THE HUGH GRANT AND COLIN FIRTH. Thank you. (Their names will be appearing again in a minute…) I love this movie. It makes me happy each and every time I watch it and it always puts me in the Christmas spirit.
And my very favorite Christmas movie is…
Oh Jude Law.
(I clearly have a type: Hugh, Colin, Jude…they’re all British guys. Ironically, I married a farm boy from Missouri and not an Englishman…but he shops at Burberry so it’s basically the same thing, no? 😉 ).
I love The Holiday. I love all of Nancy Meyers’ films (see below…). This movie, the score, the characters (did you know that Kate Winslet is one of my very favorite actresses? SHE’S BRILLIANT!), the setting, that cottage, that house, the snow, Jude Law, Jude, Law, Jude Law. I cannot get enough of this holiday flick. Love it.
So…what are my favorite movies? Here’s my list in reverse order…
When Harry Met Sally
You’ve Got Mail
Something’s Gotta Give
What are your favorite holiday movies? I would of course like to bring White Christmas, Elf, both Home Alones, Christmas Vacation and Christmas with the Kranks too :). Comment and share your favorite holiday movies AND your favorite all-time movies!
And coming in 2017, instead of Stranded, Erika and I are hosting a new monthly link up…
…Workin’ it Wednesdays.
We were chatting the other day about how we feel like we’re always working it. You know, as busy mamas, we’re literally working (we both work from home), but we also work it in other areas too: raising kids, working on our marriages, figuring out how to get out of the sweatpants and into real clothes some days, taking care of ourselves, juggling sports/therapies/dinner making…LIFE. So, we thought we could all share once a month how we all work it and hopefully give each other some tips and ideas (plus motivate and encourage one another). Here’s the list for 2017:
So, if you linked up today, remember to link up to this next month!
Okay…link, link, link and share, share, share!
