Top 5 Tuesday

Happy Valentine's Day!
I'm not a huge lover of V-Day...
No, it's not because I'm single.
I just don't necessarily think it's as great of a holiday as, say, Halloween.
Nevertheless, a lot of people seem to love it.
Including Rachel over at Just Peachy.
This Top 5 Tuesday is all about romantic movies.
How exciting!
I am a huge lover of romance.
I watch certain movies and my heart just dies a little knowing that not many men boys are chivalrous like that anymore.
I know, I know.
A lot of great men are still out there waiting to sweep a woman off of her feet.
Well, I'm still waiting and still a little suspicious that my man is wandering around Antarctica studying penguins right now.
Anyways, you don't need to hear my penguin rants {but aren't they the cutest?!}

Oh my goodness.
Oh my goodness...seriously I just died a billion times looking at those sweet faces!
Ok, so seriously now, my top 5 picks for romantic movies are:

1. The Holiday
This is one of my favorite movies.
I couldn't find a good clip of it, but when Iris tells Jasper to get out of her life...I literally get goosebumps every time.
I think the reason I am so in love with this movie is because every time I watch it I am reminded that I am a woman who deserves something great and I can't just sit around waiting for it.
I need to get some gumption and go after it!
But also, the tent scene...
Could it be any cuter?!

2. The Notebook
I am in love with Ryan Gosling {duh} and I think Rachel McAdams is so gorgeous.
This movie is probably on everyone's list of romantic movies.
I'm a sucker for old movies/movies set in the 40's and 50's.
Plus, I'm a sucker for guys like this...

3. Roman Holiday
Audrey Hepburn is so adorable and I think Gregory Peck is so attractive!

He and James Lafferty look a bit alike, no?

Well, anyways, I just love this movie.

How neat is this clip of Audrey winning Best Actress at the Oscars in 1954 for her performance in Roman Holiday!
She is simply amazing.

4. Titanic
Another obvious one, but I can't help but love this movie.
So Romeo and Juliette-esque.
I'm excited for the movie to come out again in 3-D!
My favorite part isn't the, "Jack...I'm flying!"
That's just cheesy.
But this is my favorite part:

5. The Princess Bride
All I have to say about this movie is...
Where the heck is my Westley!?

Alright, I'm about to go spend Valentine's at the gym!
So romantic.



  1. i looove penguins! i mean...i think animals are awesome as a whole which is why i love the zoo-but penguins are a must see every time!

  2. I've never seen Roman Holiday (I know, GASP) but the other four movies you listed definitely belong in the top romantic movies! :)
