Oh… The weather outside is frightful… and the fire is so delightful… and if you’ve no place to go… Let it SNOW, Let it SNOW, Let it SNOW!!!
In anticipation of cold, icy weather due here in the Northeast the next few days… I researched the BEST movies for you and your sweetie to watch together. Pop some popcorn, and snuggle up on the couch. Be sure to place the bowl of buttery, salty goodness on a lap… all the better to reach… and don’t forget to lick your fingers (seductively if you can).
Or better yet… make it a bed picnic!!! Oh how I LOVE bed picnics!!! Usually reserved for hot summer nights when the only room with air conditioning is the bed room… but they are just as much fun in the winter too! Prop those pillows up and watch the movies in bed… with a little snack. Oh what fun!!!
It’s so easy nowadays to watch whatever you want, whenever you want!! Hit up Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Instant Stream. If you have a little extra time, check out the movies for FREE at your local library… or hit up Redbox (there is always a free coupon code on the Internet somewhere for them).
As I looked around I found pretty much the same movies on each list, just in a different order. Out of the top 15 movies… I had seen them all but 3… so this afternoon I kicked back, plugged the computer into an outlet… and cried my way through 2 of them. Hey, I was working!!
Here’s a compilation of sweet, sappy, love movies culled from 10 lists… in no particular order.
The Lucky One
Nights In Rodanthe
Crazy, Stupid Love
Time Traveler’s Wife
Bridget Jones’ Diary
Going the Distance
A Walk to Remember
PS I Love You
Sleepless in Seattle
You’ve Got Mail
My personal favorite is The Princess Bride… adapted from the book written by William Goldman. It’s not too sappy, and there’s a lot of fun and action to keep everyone happy. It’s a family classic!! You will find yourself forever after saying… “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” The love story of course weaves in and out with, “As you wish.” Ah… devotion. You just gotta love it!
Oh… and if you lose electricity??? Great! Light some candles, cuddle up to keep warm and TALK to each other. Remind each other of the first time your eyes met, your first date, your first impression. Talk about your dreams for the future, no matter how silly. Tell your significant other what you like MOST about them. Create your own love story. Remember… you all fell in love at one time. Life most likely took over and got in the way. You need to put that all aside and revisit the early years… the ‘starry eyed’ years. The years you couldn’t live without each other… and you couldn’t keep your hands to yourself.
The most ‘intimate’ I have ever felt was when lying next to the man of my dreams on top of the bed, fully clothed, I shared my dreams and secret desires. All pretense was stripped away. Lying side by side, staring at the ceiling as I bared my soul. It was awesome!!!
For all the single people out there like me… grab a box of tissues and have a movie marathon. Consider it ‘homework’ for when you DO have a significant other.
What’s YOUR all time favorite LOVE STORY???
