Smiling's My Favorite

And something that always makes me smile a lot? A good Christmas movie. My family has always watched one together on Christmas Eve. Some of my all-time faves (pretty sure they're Katie's too)...


Favorite Line: While there are many to choose from, like the obvious "You'll shoot your eye out," my real favorite (probably because Dac always says it) is when the dad, protecting his precious leg lamp says, "Naddafinga!

I want this print:

Favorite Line: Again, so many great ones. Probably a three-way tie between "I just like to smile. Smiling's my favorite," "I'm singing...I'm in a store and I'm siiiiinging," and "What about Santa's cookies? I suppose parents eat THOSE too?" I also laugh a lot when he says "Not now, arctic puffin!" I think it's just because it sounds so ridiculous.

Favorite Line: "A lovely cheese pizza, just for me." (Because when I was a kid, for some reason that really did seem to sum up why it would be awesome to have the house to yourself.)

Cool minimal movie poster for sale here:


Duh, only my favorite movie of all time.

Favorite Line: It's gotta be when Jamie (Colin Firth) asks Aurelia to marry him in Portuguese, and she answers in English, having learned the language for him. He comments on her learning English, and she says "Just in cases." If asked to pick a favorite scene from that movie, I don't think I could do it.

Don't forget that Christmas is all around us (so come on and let it snow)...

  1. I also like to say, in my best British accent "I hate Uncle Jamie".

  2. Haha love it Megan!! I say that too when I'm trying to think about how to make a British accent sound real!
