Welcome fine friends to the May edition of TBB ASKS. This month’s theme is Entertainment and don’t we all like be to be entertained? Let’s get to it and have fun floating around to all those who link up with us and find out what they do for fun!
1. Comedy or Drama? Mixed together..best of both worlds!
2. Fiction or Non-Fiction? Fiction…made up stories are so much better, lol
3. Movies in Theater or At Home? Another mix of both, we love movies at home on Friday nights but the Lounger Movie theater is a game changer and the old school theater in our favorite beach town cannot be beat.
4. Musical or Play? Musicals all the way..CATS, Phantom, Mama Mia, WICKED...
(my ALL-TIME Favorite: TheSound Of Music!)
(my ALL-TIME Favorite: TheSound Of Music!)
All dressed up ready for WICKED in NYC
5. Which Meal of the day is your favorite to eat out? BRUNCH BABY!! Wait...and Ice cream anytime!!
6. Favorite Book ever read? I know I said fiction but my favorite book ever read is actually non-fiction…it’s ”Night” by Elie Wiesel
7. Game Night: Yes or No? YES...Yatzee and Monopoly are big Favorites.
Throwback of boys with their favorite playing pieces.
9. Favorite TV Series ever? Parethood! #teambraverman
10. Sitcoms growing up or Sitcoms of today? While I love The Middle, Roseanne, Goldbergs, etc..you cannot beat sitcoms of the 70's and 80's!
11. Miniature Golf or Bowling? Miniature Golf! Although I was once on a bowling league but I also got a hole in one mini golfing!!
12. Favorite Movie Theater Candy? Junior Mints! or as in above photo..new Caramel M&M's!
13. How do you like your popcorn? I’m not a big fan of movie popcorn so I like it No butter with plenty of salt and only a few handfuls.
14. 3D movies with the glasses; Yes or No? NO WAY..this was the last time we saw a 3D movie...7 years ago. Hurts our old eyes, lol.

I totally agree! She does always have the best pics. Makes me try to up my game.Delete
I'm with you on movie theater popcorn -- I hate all the butter! But yes to those new caramel M&Ms! Those are going to get me in trouble!! Happy Monday, Andrea!ReplyDelete
A Blonde's Moment
Love the throwback of the boys! I need to try caramel M&M's!ReplyDelete
I'm a fan of reading thrillers as well and give me brunch all day long :) xo,Biana-BlovedBostonReplyDelete
I can't do 3-D either, haha! This was a really fun Q&A - can't wait for next month!ReplyDelete
I love the loungers too. I'm off to check out your favorite book. Have a great week, gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I totally forgot to do this.... booooo.... and I love that pic of you for Wicked. You look like a celebrity!ReplyDelete
I love these and all of these pics are the best! We love game night too and Little Dude is really loving learning new games right now. Uno, yatzee and candy land are big favorites here right now!ReplyDelete
Love it! I think popcorn at the movies smells like a locker room!!! Mini golf is only fun if my kids aren't playing and alcohol is involved (same goes for bowling LOL!) XOXOReplyDelete
I agree with you on so many of these!! Totally all about fiction books and musicals!! Definitely need to check out all of these books--especially The Woman in the Window!ReplyDelete
I wrote down all the books you have listed! I have been getting back to reading and always welcome suggestions!ReplyDelete

We can sit next to each other and share popcorn!! I think working concession stands and seeing how popcorn is really made in those machines made me think twice. hahaReplyDelete
I read two out of three of your books. I'm off to order the third. Great questions, Andrea. Have a wonderful week.ReplyDelete
Ooh I'll have to check out some of these book picks! I feel the same way about 3D movies, no thank you! Love the throwback of your boys! I want that brunch t-shirt! I loved Parenthood too. It was too hard to pick!!! I want to play Smashball on the beach. Looks like fun. Have a lovely Monday!ReplyDelete
Great answers. Love the cute throwback picture! Parenthood is a great series!!ReplyDelete
So fun! Parenthood is THE best and gotta love Caramel M&Ms. Also I love your meal preferences- brunch and ice cream anytime is always a great choice. ;)ReplyDelete
Love these posts. Oh man I love movie theater popcorn with butter!! It's like my favorite. Oh I do love me some junior mints!! Brunch is always a good choice. Love that picture of you in NYC!! I haven't seen wicked but I just saw Hamilton loved it! Next up is Moulin Rouge!! Cannot wait!!ReplyDelete
PHANTOM!!!!! Oklahoma!!!! SINGING IN THE RAIN!!!ReplyDelete
No movie theater butter popcorn for you???? Makes me sad. Haha. Truthfully, I like mine best with lime squeezed over it and some salt. A lot healthier. Love the throw back pictures! I have never played...or heard of...Smashball. Sounds fun! Hope you have a fabulous week!ReplyDelete
How fun to read this Andrea!!ReplyDelete
Hey, Lana gave me that linky party site that she said you swear by. I just started using it for this week, and I was wondering if you had time to email me for a couple of questions?? (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thanks so much Andrea!!!
Girl! I saw Wicked in NY too and it was FABULOUS!! I loved your post, but we gotta do something about you not liking popcorn!ReplyDelete
I had ice cream on Friday and again on Saturday and it was so delicious!! :-) I grew up going on NY and Cats and Phantom are my two favorites. Actually, Phantom was the last play that I saw before we moved to Chicago. Anyways!! Super fun post and love all of these photos!! Hope that you had a glorious weekend too!! :-)ReplyDelete
Parenthood is by far my FAVORITE TV series too...along with Grey's Anatomy. We are so alike...I love brunch and ice cream and also a mix of at home movies and going out!ReplyDelete
Parenthood is my second favorite TV series ever... second to FRIENDS! It's a very close second, though... For a while there I thought it might surpass Friends, but I just couldn't let that happen. Lol.ReplyDelete
I haven't ever watched Parenthood but I think I need to! And Junior Mints all the way! Sometimes I even pick up a box of them when I am out running errands. They are so good!ReplyDelete
So fun!! I'm right there with you on lots of these!! brunch is amazing, and I love going to the movies even more now with the loungers!ReplyDelete
Parenthood shattered me (and it continues to break me when I rewatch it!) My all-time favorite show has to be Bones though - hands down! And a big YES to brunch! All day, every day!ReplyDelete
Oh, my daughter loved Parenthood as well. Can't believe you are not a movie popcorn lover. Might have to check out your favorite book as well. And, I've never heard of Smashball. Love all the photos!ReplyDelete
YES to brunch! Breakfast food + drinks = the best! And the type of movie theater definitely makes or breaks the movie experience. I don't know if I can ever go to another one with the small, normal seats again.ReplyDelete
Your pictures are a great tie-in to these questions! ...and brunch sounds really good about now :)ReplyDelete
haha made up books are much better! Game nights are so fun and I agree, brunch is the best!! I've never seen a 3D movie before but I heard they aren't the most comfortable things to watch. Sierra~Beautifully CandidReplyDelete
Fun! I love movie snacks of all kinds but rarely go. Ha! Game nights are always fun.ReplyDelete
Straight A Style
Andrea, sorry to use your comments for this but I need your mailing address to send something your way and I guess I don't have your email address. :o(( Thanks so much!ReplyDelete
Those recliner seats are just the best! It makes the movies fun again! Thanks for such a fun link up!ReplyDelete
I'm totally with you on loving musicals! I just can't get enough! And I don't think that any show has effected me as much as Parenthood did! I swear I cried every single episode, but it was so good!ReplyDelete
Musicals all the time as well!!! I saw Sound of Music with Marie Osmond as Maria - it was the most amazing show!ReplyDelete
You look so gorgeous all dolled up for Wicked! I love the fancy movie theater, but also love the old school one here too. 3D makes my eyes hurt as well!ReplyDelete
I am 100% with you on musicals! You looked great all dressed up for Wicked!ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to some at home movie days with the kiddos soon once they're off school! We love to go to Walgreens and get some snacks/drinks and then I always make homemade popcorn on the stovetop! It's so fun and a relaxing day! I LOVE musicals, too! We just saw Hamilton and now Phantom is here and I'm trying to talk myself into shelling out money to see another musical, they fell within a month of each other! We saw Phantom in NYC and LOVED it. I put on the Sound of Music all the time and I'm so glad my kids love it, too!! Sorry I didn't get a chance to join y'all today... I was planning on it, but my daughter had a competition this weekend and it was crazy busy. So tired!ReplyDelete
I'm currently on season 5 of Parenthood and I just LOVE it!!ReplyDelete
A fun post to read, my sweetness. And at the risk of sounding like a fox dressed in grandma's clothes, how pretty you are, my dear! Oh those smoky eyes in the Wicked shot!ReplyDelete
Have an amazing week, hugs x.
YES! Ice Cream totally counts as a meal! lol Thrillers and Parenthood are also too of my favorites too! :)ReplyDelete
You and I have a lot of stuff in common! I have not seen Parenthood, but it is on my list!ReplyDelete
Stylin In St. Louis
Look at you how stunning that in first photo! I loved reading about your entertainment favorites and ideas of fun! I'm with you on many of these especially brunch and fiction/thriller books! I recently read The Liar but need the other two to my wish list! xo Emily @ Martinis & BikinisReplyDelete
thrillers creep me out!!ReplyDelete
I haven't read that book - I might have to look it up.
I also haven't seen even an episode of Parenthood... I WISH it was on Netflix.
I haven't tried the Caramel M&M's, but now, I need to :)ReplyDelete
Well Jr. Mints seem to be universally loved. (and you know I love the new caramel M&M's...YUM!!!) Always love reading your answers sweet friend! XOReplyDelete
Yes to all things Roseanne! :) Love reading these lists each month, they are so much fun! And I'm with ya on the ice-cream at anytime...I can eat it for breakfast easily! Not weird at all, right? Happy Monday, gorgeous..have the best week!ReplyDelete
Yay Brunch!! :) I had never heard of Smashball before. I just googled it and it looks fun! Something new to try this summer. :)ReplyDelete
Aw man, we need to go on a musicals date!ReplyDelete
Yes, nothing like the sitcoms from the 70's and 80's!ReplyDelete
Great stuff, Andrea! I love the sitcoms from the 80s too - they were the best. Remember ALF and Family Ties? LOVED them!!ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous week, gorgeous!
I LOVE the new caramel M&Ms. Parenthood really was such a good show. I didn't watch it when it was actually on but I binge watched it on Netflix a little while ago. Loved it.ReplyDelete
I love ice cream anytime as well!! Especially Dole Whip. Parenthood is one of my favorites too. I love the Bravermans!!!ReplyDelete
I will share a popcorn with you, I like only salt and like to eat most of the bucket, so with you eating a few handfuls, makes me feel like I "shared". :)ReplyDelete
I’ve been trying to find Liar at the library since you first mentioned it and they don’t have it??? It’s on my amazon wish list now. It will show up on my prime post soon I think!ReplyDelete
I love these link-ups every month and YES to brunch. I love old sitcoms too- they really can't be beat! Hope your week is going great beautiful, xo!ReplyDelete
How could I forget ice cream as a meal to go out for! I want to change my answer because during spring/summer I go out almost every night lol. I'm so glad you all like going to the theater for movies too!ReplyDelete
Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams
I'm 100% with you on ice cream--I'll go out for that anytime! But I'm also a big brunch/breakfast fan. And Yahtzee!! What a fun game, I need to play that one more.ReplyDelete
Movie theater popcorn is the absolute best. Love all of your pictures and Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story. I hope you will join us again next week.ReplyDelete
Andrea you look AMAZING on your pic - and it is super cool that you are holding a cocktail for the 'entertainment' segment - most of the activities in the questions would be so much better accompanied by a cocktail! Right with you on the mixed genre film - I added this to mine too. ues to Brunch, yes to Monopoly, yes to mini golf! BTW I've just realised who you look like - a young Britney Spears, you lucky thing!! :)ReplyDelete
I'd originally planned to join in on this link up fun, but some things around here kept me from my computer. lol. I LOVED reading your answers this morning! Each of these pics are too cute, I'm so with you in loving tv from "back in the day", thrillers with twists are my favorite too, and yes to musicals and Sound of Music! While traveling through Europe the summer after graduation I was able to visit several sites where they filmed the movie in Austria! So fun! It was also fun to see more things we have in common, darling friend! xo!ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting about those three books. I recently got a new library card and have been wondering which books to get. Right now I'm reading The Roanoke Girls. If you haven't read it yet, I definitely recommend. Seems a lot like the ones you posted about.ReplyDelete
it is so fun!ReplyDelete
