Valentine's Rom-Com Movie Weekend

 I know normally a large percent of us have made reservations either with a few friends or significant others, but since this year is a little different from last I’d venture to say that most of us are staying in this year… Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday, President’s Day is Monday, and it’s ridiculously cold outside, the combination makes for the perfect rom-com moviethon weekend! If only it would snow… that would really bring the whole weekend full circle! Since it’s Valentine/Galentine’s weekend I obviously had to do a roundup of some of my most favorite rom-coms!

You’ve Got Mail// I know, I know, I include this movie in basically every movie roundup that I do, but it is the ultimate feel good movie and my most favorite movie, ever. I was twelve the first time I saw this movie and I just completely fell in love with everything about this movie: the music, characters, storyline, etc. This is one of the few movies I can watch an endless amount of times and never grow tired of it.


Valentine’s Day // Considering that this weekend is Valentine’s, I obviously had to include the movie, Valentine’s Day, it the Valentine’s weekend movie roundup! I was in college the first time I saw this movie, and in full transparency, I really didn’t have high hopes for this movie… I mean, just the name alone made it sound corny but it is such a fun movie! 


Sleepless in Seattle// Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks just always seem to make for Rom-Com movie magic. I am always so surprised by the fact that they never dated just because they both seem to have a good amount of on screen movie chemistry. I love the sentimental touches in this movie and how it always seems to pull at the heartstrings. It’s the perfect movie for the hopeless romantic. 


Always Be My Maybe// Who else was such a Mariah Carey fan in the 90’s? I used to play the song 'Always Be My Baby" on repeat, I just loved her and thought she was the best singer. Last year when I saw Netflix titled a movie after one of her songs I was beyond excited for the release date and it did not disappoint. The perfect combination of comedy, romance, and nostalgia! You will not be disappointed in this one, especially if you are a child of the 90’s!


13 Going on 30// I know this sounds completely ridiculous, but if Jennifer Garner and I ever meet in person I feel like we would be the best of friends {she obviously has a really good publicist} – I just love her movies and Instagram account. 


Now, for 13 Going on 30… I feel like this movie s going to continue on for years to come. Even though it was made like eighteen years, I still feel like it is so relatable on so many levels and just has such a good, fun vibe about it. 


The Proposal// Sandra Bullock is like the ultimate girl next door; she would totally come over to gossip, watch movies, and enact revenge on ex-boyfriends. Her and Ryan Reynolds are just too perfect in this movie. And let’s not forget, Betty White plays the grandmother… do you honestly need more of a reason to watch this movie than that? 


Pretty Woman// Only in the 90s could a group of writers get together and make a love story out of Vivian and Edward {and this is why some of the best rom-coms come from the 90s}. Needless to say they come from two completely different worlds and manage to come together in the most romantic way. 


Something’s Gotta Give// One of my life goals is to one day be able to own a beach house like Nancy {Diane Keaton’s character} has in this movie; it is amazing! The first time I saw this movie I was in high school and very doubtful about a movie who’s two main character were somewhere around their fifties or sixties. However, Diane Keaton is just such a great actor and their were so many funny moments, you just can’t help but love this movie.
