Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Hmm, I'm only on one or two with you. I'm not much of a chick flick fan and I hate it when movies make me cry... although, armagedon is one of my favorites. I'm more of an action/adventure type of girl :)

Thanks for sharing and have a lovely Thursday.

1,9,11, and 13 would certainly be on my list. I would have to have Love Comes Softly there too.

Cheryl said...

Those are some good ones. Mine would have to be She's the Man and The Princess Bride. I never get tired of them.

Lene said...

Oh we have the same taste! Love almost all of those! Great list. Happy TT!

Lynne said...

My granddaughter is named Shelby, but I don't think that her mother got it from Steel Magnolias. Used to be fairly uncommon, but there are more and more of them around.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Have you thought of taking some of the actresses' or characters' names for your daughter?

Happy TT!

DK said...

Great list of movies! I love Napolean and Armageddon, too. Not exactly chick flicks, are they? Oh well. Anyway, I don't have kids but I do have one name to contribute. I knew a lady once who had a GI father and Chinese mother. They named her Chisai, which means "little one". I thought it was pretty... but it didn't really fit her. She stood 6 feet tall in her stocking feet!
Happy TTing,

Pretty woman is the BEST! That is MY FAVORITE movie of all times! Great list!

Janet said...

Love Steel Magnolias...so many great quotes from that movie!

Lisa said...

I loved How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Cordia Amant said...

I am definitely a chick flick kind of girl, but mine are of a different sort. Jane Austen movies, anytime, Notting Hill, Ever After. The list goes on and on...

Missy said...

That's a great list and I agree with most of them. I haven't seen Napoleon Dynamite (don't really want to) and I think Shag is a wonderful movie.

Amy said...

I loved both father of the brides!! And pretty woman is such a classic!! =)

My TT is up as well!

Southern Girl said...

Three, four, and thirteen would definitely be on my list!

Happy TT! Mine is up, too.

Janie Hickok Siess, Esq. said...

Great list. I'm with you on several of them, but I've never heard of "Shag." What is that?

BTW, my honeymoon "movie" was the 49ers vs. the LA Rams. December 1985. :-)

L^2 said...

Great movie list. I definitely agree with you on Steel Magnolias. Still love that movie, even after seeing in a million times. :-)

YellowRose said...

Great movie list! 16 Candles, great 80's flick!! I loved A Walk to Remember, it's a good love story. And Steel Magnolia's, Classic!!

Great list!

Robin said...

Princess Bride would definitely be on my list, as would The Outsiders, Salt on our Skin, and Slapshot. How's that for eclectic?

gabriella hewitt said...

Fun list. I love Meg Ryan in "You've Got Mail." But then I'm a fan of most of her early movies.

Happy TT Day!

Carrie! :o) said...

Great list! I loved A Walk to Remember! I had read the book a few years before but thought the movie was wonderfully done.

twiga92 said...

These are some of my favorites too. A Walk to Remember is so sad but beautiful. And Armageddon is my favorite movie - so many comic lines in that movie.

TeaMouse said...

great list!

Sparky Duck said...

Mrs Duck loves both Father of the Bride movies too. Martin Short is the man.

And I loved Shag, shhhh

Kristin said...

Great list! I too was leery of Napoleon, but now it's a favorite.

I'd have to add Head Over Heels to that list as well.

Tendrils said...

AWESOME list! I love Napoleon Dynamite (I too HATED it after I FIRST saw it, but now I feel like I live it everyday as I teach 8th graders!). Pretty Woman is also my favorite movie to quote!
have a great week!

FRIGGA said...

I'm the same way with many of those movies. Good list!
My TT13 is up at http://anyapples.blogspot.com/

Jen said...

Awesome list!!!!! Haven't seen #6 - might have to look that one up. And #8 - maybe I should give it another try - I hated it the first time too.

Happy TT!

Anna Mary said...

I was so excited a few months ago that I found You've Got Mail on DVD. But boy was I disappointed to find out it was only 4 dollars. That movie's worth a million bucks!!

Happy TT!

Elena Croft said...

Oooo I love so many of those too!

Ooooh, I love chick flicks. So I´m with you on #1,#3,#4,#9,#11(!!!),#12 and #13 of course! You may ask yourself: "What about the others?" Well, I haven´t watched them (yet) =)

Michelle said...

I could also watch 16 candles and say anything over and over - they just don't make them like that anymore LOL Another favorite is "when a man loves a woman" and "when Harry met sally"

Rebecca said...

I LOVE A Walk to Remember!!! It's one of my favorites!!

Pen said...

Those are some goodies! When I want a good cry, I always reach for Steel Magnolias.

Jill said...

I couldn't pronouce Serendipity to save my life when it got out!!
Great list!! For those I know , I could watch it over and over again me too!!
