Tuesday Trends: Board Games

First off, a big heads up, thanks to Deals, Steals and Heels!  The Target fave necklace, that looks much more expensive than it is priced, is back in stock at target.com.  Get it while it’s still there, but hurry!  I see it going with a simple white t-shirt or completing an ensemble with a cute summery dress.  Very, very versatile.  Might explain why it’s so popular.  Happy Shopping!


My husband and I are big fans of playing board games and word games.  Some of our favorites are:

Apples to Apples




Trivial Pursuit

Our only problem is that lately we’re a little burnt out on these games, and we’re on the hunt for some new ones.

Of course you know I’d love to get Lillyopoly, but first, my hubby would never play such a girly game and second, everyone knows that Monopoly is a long game, and it’s usually never-ending.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks so much!


P.S.  Don’t forget about my giveaway, it ends tomorrow.  And order some Bonanno sandals too. 
It’s such a great deal!  I ordered a pair yesterday, pink and green, go figure.  🙂

  1. I love that necklace! I cannot believe all the fabulous items Target has this season! I am completely impressed. Apples to Apples is one of my favorite games… although I only played it when I was in college so I dont know if I actually know how to play it LOL.


  2. pass the pigs is lots of fun, too! When your girls are a little older "Hullabaloo" is so fun to play together, it cracks my little boy up and he has to follow directions without realizing it, genius!!

  3. We have to play games this weekend!! Can't wait! 🙂 Charoodles is another fun one! And of course, Cranium. Goal for this weekend: no fighting (especially during game time)…haha. LYLAS!

  4. That necklace is beautiful!!! I hope my Target has it. I'm going to check ASAP!!!

    I LOOOVE Scattegories!!! That game is so much fun and brings back great memories for me! When you have another couple over, you need to play Taboo!!! It's soooooo fun!!!!!!! You have to get your teammate to guess a word but you can't say any of the words on your card or you get buzzed. It's very exciting and gets everyone laughing. 🙂

  5. Love that necklace!! Dave, Macy and I bought a game at The Tractor Supply called Life on the Farm. It is kind of like Monopoly but it has a shorter version where it cuts the game time in half. Hope your having a great day! xoxo

  6. Have you ever played Catchphrase or Taboo? They're hilarious and tons of fun although you need at least 4 people to play them. I love everything in this post. The necklace is awesome & I love board games too. Have a terrific Tuesday in the best state ever!!!

  7. That necklace is gorgeous!

    Omg I have a post on board games just about finished to put up later today!! We must think alike! My husband and I are huge board game fans too. I friend of mine was just telling me about a new card game version of Monopoly, called Monopoly deal. She said it's so much fun and definitely quicker than the original! We've also recently discovered backgammon, which is lots of fun too!

  8. that necklace is GORGEOUS! i bet my targets are all sold out, but i will have to take a look — i'm actually wearing a similar multi-strand of coral today (minus that adorable starfish!) —
    i love a good game, and muffy keeps bugging me to get lilly-opoly. i think she's still a bit young for it, tho!

  9. That necklace is so cute! And we love board games too! I actually have a draft post on my dashboard about my favorite board games! Haha. I love Apples to Apples and Scattergories too! I've never played Bananagrams, but that looks fun too.

  10. Such a gorgeous necklace! Target is having some pretty amazing things between this and the Miss Trish Sandals. Have a great day. xoxo

  11. That necklace is to die – that starfish makes my little heart go pitter-patter! And I will most certainly be ordering some Bonannos – what a deal! A silver pair and a gold pair perhaps?

    Have a lovely day doll!

  12. Ashley, these are all terrific finds! I'm lovin' the sandals. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary

  13. Girl, no, I wish she would!! She won't find out til next month. So, that's just more $$ I save this month. I'm going to order some Bonannos since I'm not spending it on the kid this month.

  14. I love board games! We have friends over all the time to play Cranium. We do boys vs. girls, and it gets heated :).


  15. LOVE Apples to Apples, it's the greatest game and too funny… also would love to get Lillyopoly! You have to convince your hubby.

  16. I just played Apples to Apples for the first time a few months ago. So fun! I love Scrabble too. Trivial Pursuit gets a bit too competitive in my family so I stay out of that!

  17. that target necklace is amazing! it looks straight out of the stella & dot lookbook, don't you think?

    we have precisely the same favorite games — how great is bananagrams?! i think you'd also love boggle (another word game) and catch phrase (great game for a bigger group!).

    thank you for all the lovely comments this week! you even made it to my travel blog — i'm impressed! lots and lots of blog love to you, my dear 🙂

  18. ok that red necklace is soooooooooo cute, Ive had a few looks at it and I want it, but I havent purchased. Do you have a picture of it on you? I want to see what it looks like on a real person!
