yo yo yiggity yo. {august iclw}

*anyone know what movie that's from? 10 points to the first one to answer correctly!

hello, to those who found us through ICLW! (and of course, hello, and love you to all my bloggy friends!)

if you're new here, some good places to start would be the "about us" and "our journey" tabs on the top of the page. if you don't feel like clicking on the tabs here's the short version: we are adopting a little one from korea and right now we are anxiously waiting for our travel call. you can see our choi boy in all his adorable glory in the post below. :)

and, just because, i'll leave you with some quotes from my favorite movies (the one in the title is one i love, too)...don't you feel like one's movie choices show a bit of their personality? as you'll see below, i'm a bit of a you know where they're from?:

*i feel like such a heifer. i had two bowls of special k, 3 pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, FIVE peanut butter M&M's and, like, 3 pieces of licorice!

*i carried a watermelon.

* dear liesl, i would like to tell you how i feel about you STOP unfortunately, this wire is already too expensive sincerely, rolfe

*don't you love new york in the fall? it makes me want to buy school supplies. i would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if i knew your name and address. on the other hand, this not knowing has its charms.

*well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together... and i knew it. i knew it the very first time i touched her. it was like coming home... only to no home i'd ever known... i was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and i knew. it was like... magic

*you once said you liked me just as i am and i just wanted to say likewise. i mean there are stupid things your mum buys you, tonight's another... classic. you're haughty, and you always say the wrong thing in every situation and i seriously believe that you should rethink the length of your sideburns. but, you're a nice man and i like you. if you wanted to pop by some time that might be nice... more than nice.

*but i'm not two hundred years old. why can't i sleep in pajamas?

*je ne suis la belette de personne...

i'm not ashamed to say it; i'm such a sap! really, i could watch these movies over and over and over again. :)

happy iclw to you!


  1. The first is clueless. The second is dirty dancing. The third one is the sound of music. The fouth one is You've Got Mail. The fifth one is Sleepless in Seattle. Not sure about any of the others!

  2. the last one in french is Amelie....I LOVE's one of the two reasons why I named my little girl Amelia :)

  3. Ok, Daisy83808 totally stole my answers to the first three. #6 is either Bridget Jones' Diary or Love Actually (which is an AWESOME movie, btw). That's all I know.

  4. Ah the one about Liesl and Rolfe is the Sound of Music!

    Happy ICLW to you!
