    So funny! It seems to be a coincidence that every weekend my husband and I kick back and turn the tv on, one of these movies are on! Last weekend was What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Before that was Juno… and before that was Friends with Kids! Some are completely ridiculous, but totally enjoyable when you know the truths behind them.

    The only one I have watched from this list is Juno. And I love it. I will ask my hubby to get these other ones from this list for us to watch. We love watching movie in bed and cuddle
