I'm still busy working on Buz 2. It's about 1/4 of the way done I would say. We have a bench, some cup holders, wall coverings,and some paint. pictures on instagram! @partybuzrides. The weather is kind of a hinderance. January is my least favorite month. I can't work in the cold. If only humans could hibernate!

We have named the new bus Papa Buz. The first bus is named Short Buz. We began working on the new buz yesterday and took out most of the seats. Of course, as with anything, there's always that one stubborn thing that refuses to cooperate. This time it came in the form of 3 seats. They don't want to come out. They have huge screws in the floor that are we think bolted from underneath the bus. But, then the manufacturer put some stuff over the bolts, such as ...Read Full Post »

So, I haven't posted in awhile. Mainly because vistaprint is difficult to work with as a website builder. But how do you switch sites without losing everything you've already created. And what if the web address is no longer available and all my marketing material has partybuzrides.com!
But, to catch you up. The bus has a light issue. You either get front headlights or you get dash lights. While they were in there fixing that, asked for the governor to be look...Read Full Post »

Haven't blogged in awhile. I guess September was busy. In fact, I don't even remember where September went! I did have fun making the october specials and thinking of new ways to offer fun for people. The best part was figuring out how to make my own bus image. It wasn't too hard. Got a picture of the bus and pasted shaped over it until it was the right shape. Made all the shaped black and then there's a button on the top right that lets you group items tog...Read Full Post »

Kicked off the party with our first ride on Friday. I was soooooooo nervous! Poor Papa Buz driver probably got tired of me texting and calling to see how everything went! But, everything went fine and the ride was a success. Of course, as soon as we got to the pick up location, the karoake computer needed to update! It took FOREVER!!!! To me at least. But it was ready by the time everyone got on the bus. Everyone had a great time and I got some great phot...Read Full Post »

Went to one of my favorite wineries over the weekend and learned some tips from the owner on do's and dont's for bus drivers and riders.
1. It's always good to call ahead and let the winery know you are coming with a large group so they can be prepared. My customer's are important and I want them to have a good time and good service, so this is a good tip. Party Buz takes care of this for you.
2. Driver's should check on their riders while they are in the...Read Full Post »

Trying to think of ways to market to people and get people interested in booking a ride. I'm parked at another business establishment (Thank you for lettting me park there De-sign Chalee)! It's on the highway but I don't think enough people pass by. When I advertised in the paper, the person had not seen the bus yet and I feel like it's pretty colorful and noticeable? It was even in the Spring Ho parade (doesn't everyone in Lampasas go to that?) I want to...Read Full Post »

I booked my first appointment! So excited! Took my first payment and used the Square app. It was super easy and didn't charge too much. $5 fee for $150 deposit. Only problem was I had a tooth pulled two days before so trying to talk was challenging! Yay for the start of business! I was even dreaming of ways to keep up on social media. Going to post some wine memes to facebook to keep people entertained!
Facebook was extremely helpful in promo...Read Full Post »

2nd Family reunion complete! I think everyone had a good time! The ride down to tubing was a party and the ride back, everyone was passed out. But not for long. The music cranked up again and I got some new tunes to download. Thank you Jason for the good tunes provided from your iphone. for those who didn't know, you can plug in your own phone to listen to your tunes when you've listened to all of mine. We even watched some old 80's music videos that I d...Read Full Post »
