Mindy is passionate about two things: kids and parties. She is a transplant from Northern California, but has called Phoenix her home for the last 4.5 years. Before moving to Phoenix, she taught elementary school for 8 years, and misses being in the classroom all the time. She is married to a man she fell in love with over blueberry pie, and mama to one little man named Grayson. He is the reason she gets up in the morning, and she can’t imagine life without him. She spends most of her time chasing after her 2.5 year old Tasmanian Devil, but daydreams about everything party. You can check out her blog, Mindy Alyse Celebrations for party inspiration and DIY tutorials. In her off duty time, she loves cooking, crafting, and watching BRAVO with a glass of wine in hand. Party on!
