Five on a Friday 3.16.18

I am SO excited it’s Friday because that means tomorrow I FINALLY get to go see HAMILTON! AHHHHHHHHH! I bought the tickets back in the summer and it’s finally here!! Here’s Five on a Friday!


Have you all heard of the Cinncinati reporter Bob Herzog? He has started doing this bit on Facebook called Wake Up and Makeup where he films himself getting his TV makeup on a few minutes before he goes on air. He is just so genuine, hilarious and such a cute guy!


I am now ADDICTED to HQ Trivia! Holy moly. If you aren’t playing or know what it is, its a live game show (and it’s also on Android now – not just iPhone. The game is at 3pm EST and 9pm EST every day and you can win money if you get all 12 trivia questions right. It’s super addicting and I haven’t won yet, but I made it up to question eight the other day! If you want to play, you can use my code ‘laceybean83’ to sign up and I get a free life!


I started a recurring feature on the blog before I took my unofficial hiatus back in the fall – it was What I Bought on Amazon. I am thinking of bringing that back… does that series interest you guys? I know I love it because I am Amazon obsessed but what do you think? If I continue to keep it as a link up also, should I change the timing?

I’m continuing on with the 21 Day Fix and eating well, but I think in a few weeks I may need to change it up. We have a lot of Beachbody videos in our house so we’ll prob switch to one of those or even back to Jillian Michaels but I have dabbled in the thought of start Weight Watchers. It most likely wouldn’t happen until after Disney, because I am going to eat all the things, but it’s been in the back of my mind.


HAMILTON!!! I am so excited. Dave and I are going for our wedding anniversary! We’re staying in the city in the theater district, having dinner at an awesome new restaurant I found and then HAMILTON and then I need to find a great brunch spot with a killer Bloody Mary. (Brunch necessity.) EEEK!


Have a fantastic weekend!!!

    • It’s been SO LONG since we got the tickets that the excitement wore off for awhile and now its like IT’S HERE!! IT’S HERE!!! And meanwhile Dave already got to see it through his school lol.

  2. Enjoy Hamilton! Yes, I loved your Amazon link up! I think Zachary is playing that trivia game. After I started playing one through Swagbucks, he told me about a different one he joined!

    • Thanks! And I love that Zachary is playing – good luck to him! Glad you enjoy the Amazon link up! 🙂 I may move it to the middle of the month though – what do you think?

  3. I’ve just started Weight Watchers (on week 3) and I really like the new program with so many 0 point foods. I’d definitely give it a whirl after Disney. You don’t want to deprive yourself down there. 😉

  4. I hope you have fun at Hamilton (and Disney.) We’re going to Disney World in November and I’m definitely going to suspend my healthy eating plan when I go!

  5. why not give WW a whirl? i tried intermittent fasting just to change things up and discovered it wasn’t for me. i eat clean regularly but sometimes i like to experiment just for the heck of it.

  6. I enjoyed the Amazon-posts…. I shop there too but won’t be able to join in every month (because I wouldn’t have enough items).

  7. I joined WW in January and am down 7 lbs so far! 7 more to go. I’ve enjoyed it and even did it when I went to Disney (mostly my lol!).

  9. OMG, I’m addicted to HQ as well! It’s such a nice break in the afternoon (definitely have a crush on Scott, haha) and kinda my “wrap-up” for the day at night. I love it!

  10. I love how candid that reporter is. Thanks for showing me that. Have so much fun at Hamilton.

  11. Hurray for Hamilton! I hope you loved it xo

  12. Hope you enjoyed Hamilton! We loved it last year and I would love to see it again!

  13. HQ Trivia so much fun and I’m convinced if I get the right group of people in a room together, I could win some actual $$. I made it to Q10 about a month ago while at work and I’m determined I WILL make it to the end at some point, even if I only win $1.
