It's a White Elephant Party at Blue!

Our Holiday party was a true success at Fox and Hound!  Everyone brought a gift from home to be swapped out for another "new" gift.  Some of the representatives got pretty creative in their gifts, which included the entire Wonder Woman DVD collection, a sticker set with matching princess chapstick, and a few VHS workout videos.  Although the point of a White Elephant is to steal presents from others, everyone seemed too excited to see what was behind the gift wrapping to do a lot of trading.

One of our newer additions Rishi, was the first to start the stealing and received an inflatable chair, while the hot ticket item of the night was definitely a furry panda hat that had a flashlight attached on the front.  At the end of the night, everyone was full from the pizza and wings and was ready for their Holidays to start.

 Happy Holidays from Blue!! Have a  happy New Year and stay tuned what this next year will bring!

Game Night at Blue Inc Schaumburg

Friends and Family Night at Blue Inc. this week was Game Night!  Everyone got together to play some really fun games including Spoons, Balderdash, and Catch Phrase.  With 3 different teams competing against each other it made it quite competitive!

By far, Spoons was the most cutthroat game with people closely watching as the cards went around the circle.  At the same time they had to make sure and keep an eye on the spoons in the middle of the table and be ready to grab one as soon as someone got 4 of a kind.
The scores remained extremely close between all 3 teams throughout the night.  The final game came down to an intense game of Catch Phrase played by all team members.  With the night coming to an end, the game came down to the last round.  In the end, team 1 was the winner! 

The night was a success with a lot of fun competition!  Special thanks to Murphy and Ashley for organizing and regulating each event!

Check us out next week for our next Friends and Family Night!

Happy Birthday Buttons!

We had a birthday on Thursday at Blue Inc. in Schaumburg! Our very own Scott Sanhamel aka "Buttons" celebrated another year of his life the best way he knew how: bowling and singing karaoke with everyone.  Several of the guys in the office sang karaoke in tribute to Scott's birthday.  Nicole, one of our managers, sang "I had the time of my life" with our Employee Spotlight for the week, Josh Zuby.  Will Wideman, Jay Bennett, and Laderrick Murphy aka "Murphy" did a hilarious rendition of "Poison" by Bell Biv DeVoe, while our very musically  talented Mike Paulson sang some Kings of Leon in honor of Scott's birthday.

In between all of the singing, Murphy taught everyone how to "Dougie" and how to do the "Stanky Leg".  It was a very educational and yet entertaining night!  Stay tuned for next week's Friends and Family Night!
