Happy Birthday, Julie Andrews!! (AKA Ten Reasons She's Cooler Than You)

So, I know that it's October 1, and usually on the first of the month, I do my Happy ______ post. BUT, today is a much more important day that just the first of the month.


As you *may* have guessed (Y'know, from this. Or this.), I absolutely adore Julie Andrews. She is my favorite actress of all time. Today is her eightieth birthday, and in honor of this momentous occasion, I have compiled a list of...drumroll please..

~ Ten Reasons Julie Andrews Is Cooler Than You ~

1. She is forever beautiful, classy, and ageless

Like, look at this. I just want to be Julie Andrews when I grow up. Is that too much to ask?

2. The legendary Walt Disney recognized her awesomeness

WE'LL WAIT. Walt Disney himself, one of the most incredible men in history, put his movie ON HOLD FOR HER. 

3. She understands the concept of time

As a queen herself, she would be fully aware of this. 

4. She is not to be underestimated

This is literally my favorite thing on the internet. Ever. 

5. She and Mary Poppins are the same person

Because they're both practically perfect in every way!

6. She's basically immortal

Also, can we just say- a Princess Diaries musical would be the best thing in the entire world. I would sell my soul for that. 

7. She's a legit queen

If I ever find myself in possession of a large sum of money, I want to buy an island, name it Genovia, plant a bunch of pear trees, and make Julie Andrews the queen.

8. She'd be the sassiest, most amazing grandmother

This is perfect.

9. She's not afraid of anything

She actually did this stunt herself!!! No stunt double. She's perfect. 

10. She's seriously adorable

So. Adorable!!!

11. She's not afraid to say what she thinks

My favorite quote.

12. Everything was thoroughly modern

..and she passed on the torch

^This picture = Perfection

13. She has the most amazing voice. Ever. No argument.

I would listen to her read the dictionary. 

14. She has some pretty awesome quotes

15. She's just perfectly Julie!!


Happy Birthday, Julie!!!!


  1. The "We'll wait" is perfect!

    It's so sad she got vocal nodes. She had an incredible voice. My choir teacher was actually talking about her the other day and she went on for a while about how nice of a voice she had and then sat down in defeat because she was upset she got vocal nodes.

    1. IT IS!!!

      It's really the saddest thing. Her voice was absolutely gorgeous. I shall sit in defeat with your teacher. It's just not fair...

  2. Wow, she looks so young compared to how old she really is!

    1. She really does! I think that picture is a bit older, but gosh, I want to age as gracefully as her..

  3. OH MY GOODNESS EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS POST IS PRACTICALLY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. I'm so glad you wrote this- literally Julie Andrews has been my hero for as long as I can remember. Can't even believe that she's eighty now but I really appreciate the point you made about her being immortal. It makes me feel a little better.;) Plus the fact that she looks like she could be twenty!!!!!!!! Makes me so happy that you love her as much as I do ^-^

    1. YAY OH MY GOODNESS THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! The fact that she's eighty is so crazy...the immortal point is very comforting;) So happy to find another Julie fangirl!!!!!!!

  4. OMG, happy Birthday Julie, she has been one of my idols forever, what is even better is my sister has her autograph!!!!!!

    1. Oh my gosh, SERIOUSLY?? That's so amazing!!! How did she get it??

    2. she wrote her a letter, she was hoping that julie would read a book, the mother-daughter book club, and maybe, since she has influence, she would be able to get her to get producers to make it into a movie, hoping Julie would write back, but you know, she doesn't have the time, but we thought it had gotten lost in the mail, it took so long. it was at least three month later that we got anything back. in the envelope was my sister's letter, i think a bunch of other papers, and like i said, the picture, which was gorgeous with her signature on it. We were screaming sooooooooo loud when it got back in the mail. i'm trying to write a letter to Emma Watson, or even Bindi Irwin, she is one of my major idols
