Wishful Wed ....Genre



I love love movies, so I was all over this topic!

'I wish' .... my life was a movie, 
and I would want it to be 
a romantic comedy adventure!


I instantly think of The Hangover and Wedding Crashers.  Absolutely hilarious!!


If I was going to depict how my days ahead would be, I would be sure to include the romance aspect because my love language is Quality Time and I am truly a sucker for attention.   We talked about this a couple weeks ago at our small group get together, and Gabe said I can't make up "attention" as my love language.  So, hubby (since you read my blog), refer to this link to reference it is part of the Quality Time love language.  Even better yet, check out this quote from Gary Chapman's book .....

"A husband watching sports while talking to his wife is NOT quality time. Unless all of your attention is focused on your mate, even an intimate dinner for two can come and go without a minute of quality time being shared."

NEXT, Everyone needs a little laughter, especially with the end goal being 70+ happy years together.  AND, this goes hand in hand with the adventure portion of things.  Something has to spice up the day to day reality when you live an eternity together, and thankfully .... then, eternity in a better place :)

I'm lovin it. I think that my husbs love language might be quality time too. He feels dejected after too many late nights at work, girls nights, kid activities and we've not really SEEN each other - hum... some food for thought.

I'll post mine when I get to work - just work up about 30 minute ago and I am way late for work!

Wedding Crashers kills me!! Too funny! I wish my life would be an old romantic movie, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Emma, you get my drift!

I am a huge of QT too...I love love attention or being doted on. It makes a girl feel good about herself.

I would also have to say that I would want to be in some sort of romantic comedy. It would have to be one with a happy ending though :)

czstout said...

The SSS Sophisticate said...

I am right here with you! Love those movies! Always a happy ending that makes you feel good!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I would say Attention is my love language too! ha. Um...on 2nd thought...it might be a lot of bloggers "Thing". not sure though.

I agree with your genre picks. You can't go wrong with all those!

Leslie @ A Blonde Ambition said...

I love both of those movies, especially The Hangover! I don't know if I've ever laughed that hard in a theater before : )

Chloé said...

haha i LOVED the hangover. i was laughing so hard i almost cried. these are all great movies though!

Laura and Ryan said...

I love Gary Chapman. Great great quote. It's funny b/c when we haven't had quality time for a while, I feel like something is missing in my life!

OceanDreams said...

I like that Gary Chapman quote, so very true. Love languages are hard to learn but very effective once we truly understand the person. Or try to understand them, lol.
