So here me and my husband are, 9 years after saying "I do". One kid, one mortgage, 2 dogs and a stack of bills. Instead of going out to celebrate our anniversary today hubby is working, and me and Little Man are attempting to make the best of this yucky summer cold. Things happen. Life happens. It's one of the great things about marriage... you learn to go with the flow. And it makes it all the more special when you do get to have time alone with your other half!
Anyway... In honor of this romantic occasion I have come up with a list of my top 15 "can I get a moment like that" romantic moments from TV and movies. Some of the moments are swoon worthy, giggle worthy and down right wanna smack your man saying "why can't you do that?!" worthy. You may or may not agree with some of the picks, so please feel free to add some of your own!
So here goes nothing...
15. The O.C. - Seth & Summer's Spiderman kiss
Some people might have taken this scene between Noah and Allie in The Notebook differently. Maybe you thought he was just humoring her, agreeing she was a bird and saying he was one too. To me, it was his way of saying... whatever you are, where ever you are I'm am too.
6. Love Actually - Love notes on a poster board
Mark's in love with Juliet. And she just so happens to be married to his best friend. So instead of pursuing, he tells her how he feels "without hope or agenda" on poster board. Love notes mixed in with a little humor. So sweet.
5. Friends - Ross & Rachel's "I got off the plane" kiss
After Ross professes his love for Rachel in the final episode, she still boards a plane headed out of the country. When Ross returns home, feeling defeated, he listens to an answering machine message from Rachel telling him she loves him too, and that she has to get off the plane. The message cuts off leaving Ross wondering if she got off the plane. Well, yep, she did. Leaving us with the final kiss of a couple that was meant to be together.
4. Alot Like Love- "I'll be there for you" serenade
The friends who loved each other but just couldn't get their timing right. When Oliver finds himself broke after his "5-year plan" backfires he turns to the one person who he knows will understand. With Ashton Kutcher's cutie pie face and Bon Jovi's "I'll be there for you" this is a recipe for something that will make your heart smile.
3. My So Called Life- Brian writes Angela a letter.
After Jordan screws up royally with Angela, he asks Brian for help writing a letter. Jordan is oblivious to the fact that Brian is in love with Angela. Brian reluctantly agrees to help, and writes a letter for Angela pouring his heart out, and signs it Jordan Catalano. My favorite part of the letter? "If you want to burn this letter, do it. You could burn whole world down. You could tell me to go to Hell, if you wanted to. And I'd do it. And I'd send you a letter from there.". Yep, the geek won me over on that one!
2. Twilight- Eclipse "Until your heart stops beating"
Sorry to all you Edward peeps out there. He doesn't make my list. But Jacob Black does! This Team Jacob girl couldn't make a romantic scenes list and not include the heart string tugging line "I'm gunna fight for you, until your heart stops beating."! I couldn't find a video of that clip of that particular line, so I found a fan made video of some of Jacob's best lines including my fav. Enjoy...
1. The Notebook- "It still isn't over"
Allie pays a visit to Noah, her first love, who she is still in love with. After confronting him about never writing her back he explains his side of the story. My favorite line in the scene is "It still isn't over.". *Swoon*
