Family Game Night


Hasbro is celebrating "Family Game Night" tonight. It is an effort to get families to turn off their TV's for one night and spend some quality time, playing games.

When was the last time that you played a board game? We play video games all the time in our house. But really, it's very rare that we sit around the kitchen table and play a board game. My son has some board games that he has received as presents. We love them, but tend to forget about them.

When I was at BlogHer in July, I went to a party hosted by MomCentral. I was given the opportunity to receive five games from Hasbro. I picked five games that I had never played before. I'm a huge Monopoly fan, but I could play that in my sleep. I wanted something totally different. I came home from work on Monday and was excited when I saw a box from Hasbro on my front porch. I couldn't wait to open it.

These are the games that I received:

Cranium

Clue: Secrets & Spies
Bop It
Boggle
The Game of Things

Hasbro is sponsoring "Family Game Night" as an affordable way to stay in and spend some quality time with your family. It costs over $50 for a family of four to go to the movies now. We only have one child, but I still see how expensive it is to do family friendly events. Plus, I grew up with board games and want my son to have the same memories.

I can't wait to un-plug for the night!

What were your favorite board games? Do you play board games with your children?

e.l.f. Cosmetics Party

Last week I had the opportunity to attend an e.l.f. Cosmetics Make-up at Home party. My best friend, Stacey, has tried e.l.f. before and she loves it. I definitely needed a new make-up routine so this was great event for me to attend.

I arrived at the party, which was held at Ciaran's house. There were several women there that I knew, and there were also some new faces. We enjoyed some great appetizers and some conversation. We watched a video and then went to check out the make-up. Ciaran had the make-up all set-up by the different collections. We all went and started playing with it.


It was a great party, and I got to try on several different styles of make-up. Their "Mineral Collection" was my favorite. I brought some home with me and I'm eager to wear it again. I love their prices too. It is very affordable compared to Department Store make-up.

Ciaran also created a story on Whrrl about the party. Check it out below!

Introduction Post

Hi there!

It's me, Julie, from your favorite blog, Angry Julie Monday. I've received tons (only maybe several) inquiries to do giveaways and reviews. I love to do them, but really don't want to clog up my personal blog. I want the other blog to stay, personal, or for me, that's random.

I will be posting some reviews here, some giveaways, and even some opportunities that I've had since I've become a blogger.

So hop in, and stay for the ride!!
