What is the BEST pick me up when you're feeling blue?

A little Elle Woods!





I have probably watched this movie over 100 times. I could probably say it is my all time favorite movie. My sophmore year of college I watched this movie on repeat, oh and can I add that it was a VHS, remember those?? If you don't like people who repeat movie lines then don't sit down next to me during this movie.

The point of my story is that this movie became more to me. Yes I know, I know it is not some awe inspiring film like Titanic or Millon Dollar Baby but Elle Woods made me feel like I could do anything and be anything I wanted. Everytime I am feeling down about work or not feeling good enough or smart enough I pull out Legally Blonde and I feel so much better. I think the idea of saying, "Hey, look at me I'm not some dumb blonde (or whatever your haircolor) " is very empowering. I walk away thinking I am so smart I am going to succeed no matter what I do! I also love Reece Witherspoon and think she is an amazing woman and mother which could be another reason why I find it so "inspiring"

Sooo that is my random thought of the night! Do you have any movies that inspire you?

  7. I love that movie! I used to watch it so many times that my dad now knows most of the lines and finds it endearing as well!

    Besides a little Elle Woods, I like to watch the Sex & The City movie, The Holiday (Jude Law.. Yum) and even though it isn't a movie.. Getting a pedicure always makes me feel refreshed and a little more put together.
