"That's your problem. You don't want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie."

It could be the fact that there is nothing more romantic than a fire, hot cocoa and cuddling. It could also be the fact that my heart can’t help but pitter patter at the sight of the first snow, but whatever the reason, I consider the holidays the most romantic time of the year.

For someone who is single (I'm not complaining...merely making an observation), this time of year reminds us that we have no significant other to purchase a gift for, no one to spend those cold winter nights cuddling with(except our best friends) and no one to bring to the holiday party.

That kiss at midnight is always disappointing. It reminds us that, February 14th is right around the corner and we will probably spend it alone AGAIN with a pint of mint chocolate chip and “She’s The Man” on DVD.

However, like I’ve said before, I am a hopeless romantic and this post is dedicated to everyone who loves to watch sappy, heartwarming tales of first love, everlasting love and unrequited love.

Here are my top 5 movie quotes to keep you warm and cuddly during the season of love. So grab your snuggie, some Kleenex and a bottle of pinot- ‘Cause’s going to be a long winter!

5: If you have never seen this movie…go out and rent it. Heck, BUY IT! Every girl at some point has felt like Julia Roberts does in this movie. I HAVE!!! This movie is beyond “quotable”, but my favorite has to be…

"I have a favor to ask, I'm hoping it's not too much. After all, you said you'd always be there for me, so, here it goes: Don't like her. Don't pick her. Don't be with her. Anyone but HER. It hurts me too much. And if I could possibly fit one more thing in there if it is okay with you, maybe, just maybe, do you think you could fall for me?" - My Best Friend's Wedding

4. Everyone has seen this movie, read this book or danced in their jammies along with Bridget Jones and whether we want to admit it, we all want to be told…

"I like you just as you are." -bridget jones diary

3. Go grab your Pinot and your BFF. There is nothing sexier than British Accents and Jude Law in plastic glasses. And you aren’t fooling anyone by saying that there isn’t a guy that you will always love…no matter how much of an asshole he is. I WISH I could channel Iris in The Holiday and say this…but unfortunately I just don’t have the “Gumption”

“ Shush. You broke my heart. And you acted like somehow it was my fault, my misunderstanding, and I was too in love with you to ever be mad at you, so I just punished myself! For years! But you waltzing in here on my lovely Christmas holiday, and telling me that you don't want to lose me whilst you're about to get MARRIED, somehow newly entitles me to say, it's over. This - This twisted, toxic THING between us, is finally finished! I'm miraculously done being in love with you! Ha! I've got a life to start living…”

2. I've seen this movie make men weeeeep

“If you're a bird I'm a bird.”- The Notebook


"But for now, let me say - Without hope or agenda - Just because it's Christmas - And at Christmas you tell the truth - To me, you are perfect - And my wasted heart will love you "-Love Actually

What are your favorite movies or movie quotes???



ps...the title is from Sleepless in Seattle


  1. Love any quote from the notebook!

  2. I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places you didn't know you had inside you. And it doesn't matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends... you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.

    That is my fav Holiday quote from Iris..the first time I saw that movie, this quote made me cry! <3 you

  3. ps..forgot to say it's Catarina haha

  4. Just thought of another favorite..I don't know that it really qualifies as a holiday movie but it's def a classic.

    I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
    When Harry Met Sally!

  5. Catarina,

    I love that you feel the need to write your name at the bottom of every comment. Just admit that you are an avid follower of my blog and stop commenting annonymously.

    Love always your dear friend and soulmate,

    ps...I miss you terribly and think that a reunion is in order.

  6. I think "If you're a bird, I'm a bird" was a quote on my facebook for years!
