Be Still my Heart...

Well, tonight's the night. Jim and Pam. Pam and Jim. Mr. and Mrs. Two become one. I have to be honest, I was not an Office watcher. My brother and sister have been telling me for years that I was virtually un-American and crazy because it wasn't in my TV lineup. I began watching about a year ago and I now know that Jim and Pam are possibly one of the best couples to hit TV since...well, maybe since Ross and Rachel!

So, the impending nuptials got me thinking about my favorites throughout the years. I have many! And I have to tell you, as I was thinking through them and finding photos I got a little teary eyed! I can remember sitting in my room, my dorm room, the TV room at the Pi Phi house, my couch two weeks ago...and watching moments of love between these "characters" that most certainly were real to me! I can't hardly think of any of these people outside of the realm of Joey, or Rachel, or Felicity, or...well, you'll see as my list unfolds.

In honor of Jim and Pam, here is a list (in no particular order) of some of my favorite TV romances. *All images via Google Images

We'll start with the happy couple: Jim and Pam- The Office
Joey and Pacey- Dawson's Creek
Felicity and Ben- Felicity (LOVE THEM...I'm not kidding I let out a little "Aww..." when this came up on Google images.)
Ross and Rachel- Friends (Did U2 With or Without You just begin playing in your head??)

Sharon and Nick- The Young and the Restless

Meredith and McDreamy- Grey's Anatomy

Brenda and Dylan- 90210

Angela and Jordan- My So Called Life (They were THE couple during my teen years! I thought this show depicted reality so vividly when I was 14...)

And last but CERTAINLY not least.....


Carrie and Big- Sex and the City

Who would you add?

i was out walking/running this morning and got mad at myself for not thinking of this sooner! i totally should have thrown a "reception" watching party for tonight! every time i hear that little moments speech from jim on the previews i get the tears! they are a GREAT couple. wish they were a real life couple!

Tiffany said...

OMG!!! We are kindred spirits!! I thought the same thing!! I was thinking I should have ordered a cake, we could have had punch...the whole bit. AND, I have been dying to throw a party where everyone wore old BM dresses that are just taking up space in their closet. This would have been perfect! I always have great ideas a day late and a dollar short!

Awww. You have some good ones. I loved "My So-Called Life." Jared Leto was so good looking back in the day!

Kristen said...

You KNOW I love me some Felicity. In fact, I feel like this was a quiet little shout out. Also note, I still have the final episode on TAPE.

I have never really gotten into The Office. I don't know why? Maybe I will have to give it another try. But I have Ross and Rachel, and Meredith and McDreamy!

Liz said...

Jim and Pam are WAY better than any of the other TV couples EVER.

I liked Felicity and Noah but I agree with you about Pacey and Joey.

And I love Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl and Lucas and Peyton from One Tree Hill (except for the last season).

AND I love two other Grey's couples... Owen and Christina and Lexie and Mark.

SO many TV couples I love. :)

Em Clod said...

I loved Kelly and Dylan WAYYYY more than Brenda and Dylan. :)

High Heels and Huntin' Boots said...

That's a great list! I'd add Rory and (I can't even think of his name at the moment, dangit!) from the Gilmore Girls. I LOVED that show in college!

Jax said...
