Top 2 Tuesday Movies!!

Top 2 Hosted by Taylor at Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too!!
You can see her Top 2 Fav's of the week and many others Mama's here:

This was hard for me, I LOVE MOVIES!!!  Seriously, love movies.  I actually almost freaked out bc I LOVE LOVE LOVE "Love Actually, which was one of Taylor's picks!"  And rocking the babe last night, I thought that I might pick Love Actually, but I have decided that I will keep that as part of my fav Christmas Movies which I have to leave in an altogether seperate catergory.  I always always always watch that at Christmas over and over again, along with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, The Family Man, The Bishops Wife, Elf, and It's a Wonderful Life.  So, that also brought me to Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn because that was my all time fav movie for a very long time, but I had to push that aside because, I thought, do I watch it repeatedly over and over again??  And the answer was no, while I do love it, I no longer watch it over and over again as I did in the past. And that to me, says it's probably not one of my absolute favs anymore.  And, I might remember something else I like too, but for now, these are my pics:


An oldie.  When I was a little girl, my mother and I used to sghare a pint of Chocolate Chocolate Chip Haagen Daz Ice Cream and watch old black and white movies and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.  This was my all time favorite black and white we watched, and I used to ask her to watch it over and over, but she always made me experience other black and white movies, and I'm so glad she did. Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant were my favorite on screen couple and they did many movies together.  Katherine, is amazing, she made wearing pant(suits) chic for women, epitomizes grace and exudes class and sophistication(like Audrey Hepburn but with Chic girlie clothes); while Cary Grant is so debonair, suave, and charming. They are kind of like the Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan of today.  I try and make my husband watch it with me, but while he did like it, he does not share my passion to watch it over and over again...


Now, I'm mixing in my favorite NOW movie.  I literally have watched this movie no less than 50 times since it came out, I'm sure.  It is one of those movies that whenever I am bored or needing just some noise, needing a lift, or want to sit down and watch a movie, or there is nothing to watch, this is my staple.  I never NEVER tire of watching this movie (hence I have seen it about 50 times).  I loved the book.  I love animals.  It reminds me of our challenging black labrador, and I love both actors.  Mostly, I love the story that it tells about loving animals, raising a family, careers, challenges, friendship, and life.  I find it amazing, and it always lifts my spitits, and makes me cry at the same time. 

I LOVE how beautiful Jen looks in her wedding gown, hair, and make-up in the scene at the beginning while they are sticking their feet in the bubble bath jacuzzi talking about their love and the new life ahead of them...just beautiful!!

Thanks Taylor, for letting us all share.  I can't wait to see everyone's picks!!


  1. I've never seen either of these... everyone tells me how sad Marley & Me is, and since I cry at practically anything I've been avoiding it! Maybe I'll give it a shot though...

  2. Love Marley and Me and I have never The Philadephia Story but since we have the same taste in movies Im adding that to my list of movies I need to watch! Thanks for linking up! Hope your having a great day!

  3. I love love love Marley and Me but it is soo sad. I have never seen Philadephia Story but I bet I would love it.

  4. I have not watched Marley and Me because I know I will cry. I read the book and that was more than enough tears for me.

  5. Marley and Me...what a tearjerker! New follower :)

  6. I read Marly and Me and cried my whole way through it...so not sure if I can watch the movie...but I bet it is good!

  7. I haven't read or seen Marley & Me yet...I don't want to cry, but I think I might cave and at least read the book.


  8. I still haven't seen Marley and Me, but I have been wanting to.....

    Philadelphia Story is my husband and my favorite movie of all time!! I would have to honestly say that we probably watch this movie at least once a month. Love it!
