Hi there! So you landed on this page because you might have wanted to know a little bit about us and this site, Parties 365. Or, you just clicked the wrong tab. Don’t go! I’ll make this short (just kidding – I’m wordy), sweet and possibly slightly entertaining. This is our family down there.
We’re not always in black and white. We do have some color to us during the summer months when we lounge by the pool all day.
Our family consists of Todd (the hubs), me (Julie), Hannah (16), Josiah (15) and Aaron (10). I’ll let you figure out who is who. Notice I didn’t list everyone’s age? We spent the first 9 years as a family in the Air Force moving A LOT and decided at one point it was time to settle. Well, that didn’t happen at first. After a move to Colorado for 3 years and then a move to Austin, Texas (my stomping grounds) – we’ve decided to call Austin home. We’ve been here over 3 years now and it’s been amazing. Well, we hold back our curses on those 100 degree days that sometimes go on and on and on – but we get over it. Being by our family and the friends we have met here make it absolutely worth it.
How Parties 365 Came To Be
So, Parties 365 you ask. Do you party every day you ask? Gosh, no. I’d be dead. Or almost dead. But I do like to host parties and generally just have a great time getting together with friends and family. I also love to have people over to our home just because. No party and decorations. No reason. No gifts. (Wine is an acceptable gift in case you feel the urge. FYI.) Just put a pot of soup on the stove and call it a day.
Not only do I love parties & entertaining, I love TOYS. I love hearing about new toys, playing with new toys and working with the fun and amazing people in the toy industry. My husband and I attended the New York Toy Fair in February of 2013 and had the privilege of meeting so many great people.
Here’s a little of what Parties 365 covers:
- Birthday Parties for Kids
- Birthday Parties for Adults
- Birthday Party Supplies
- Toy Ideas
- Hot Toys on the Market
- Baby Showers
- Wedding Showers
- Last Minute Get Togethers
Todd and I both used to own a site in the toy industry. That was my full time job and he was my advertising and video guy. We sold it, took some time off to step back and analyze our next steps. I started missing it like crazy. We decided that parties and toys naturally go together. When my friends or people visiting the old site were throwing a party, they would always ask “So, what toys are hot right now?” or “My daughter was invited to this party, what gift should I get the party girl?” We decided to combine the two.
Now get your Party On!
(Told you I’m wordy.)
