My choice for Weekend Click Flick is Steel Magnolias. I cry if I see a commercial for Steel Magnolias. I am a Texan by birth, raised in a home that served sugared tea and offered you peanuts in your Coca Cola. Nothing is better on a cold day than wrapping up in a blanket and watching a good chick flick.

Steel Magnolias is the story of women friends, played out in a small Southern town. Julia Roberts is the main character and Sally Field plays her mom. The story begins with Roberts' wedding, then carries on through the ups and downs of the friends' lives. How can you go wrong with supporting cast members such as Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis?

Popular blogger Mrs.Fussypants, is a southern girl like me. Allison Worthington (Mrs.Fussypants) loves Steel Magnolias too!  Allison is a blogging mom of five who home schools the kiddos while running an online media empire. She's awesome and if you haven't visited her online magazine, Blissfully Domestic, you should check it out.

Here are Allison's favorite quotes from Steel Magnolias, both are from Dolly Parton's character, Truvy Jones:

In a good shoe, I wear a size six, but if a seven feels so good, I buy a size eight.

Time marches on and sooner or later you realize it is marchin' across your face.

I love these quotes! Do you like a good chick flick on a dreary day? If so, what's your favorite? Are you a fan of Steel Magnolias?  If so, how many tissues do you go throw watching it?
