Top 5 Mom!

To celebrate Mother's Day I decided to ask my Mom to do this week's "Top 5 with..."  I thought it would be fun to ask her these sorts of questions since we don't usually discuss these topics. I talk to her almost every single day and I never knew what her favorite movies were... or words that she would use to describe falling in love?!

So, here are a few of my mom's favorite things...

Top 5 Films

1. April Love

2. The Way We Were

3. Titanic

4. Gone with the Wind

5. An Officer and a Gentleman

Top 5 Crushes of All Time

1. Elvis Presley

2. Paul Peterson

3. Robert Wagner

4. Michael Landon

5. Peter Graves

Top 5 Style Icons
1. Jackie O.

2. Ali MacGraw

3. Jaclyn Smith

4. Doris Day

5. Michelle Obama

Top 5 Songs

1. "Moondance" by Van Morrison
(this song was my parent's favorite song to dance to)
2. "Crazy" by Patsy Cline

3. "Blue Velvet" by Bobby Vinton
4.  "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole
5. "Pretty Woman" by Roy Orbison

5 Words to Describe Falling in Love...
 (mom & dad)

1. exciting
2. gidddy
3. moonstruck

More posts on my Mom.... here and here and here. I love her... what can I say? She's my best friend and my style icon.  I also happily credit her for getting me into Patsy Cline, Van Morrison, Roy Orbison, old movies, Gidget, thrifting, and vodka gimlets. Thanks Mom, I love you.
