Entertaining...Why doesn't anyone do it anymore?

On average, how many parties do you attend each month/year? Please include your age because you might be "of the age" that goes to lots of showers...

  • We used to have a lot of get togethers and parties before the kids. Lots of drinking and grilling out. Now we get together with family for kids' birthdays and holidays. I'm 37. I still have a girls' nite out every other month or so and make time for date night every couple of months, too. I do miss the larger groups, though.

  • I'm 40, and we have a dinner party about every two weeks. We have friends over informally probably once a week as well. We also host 3 "big" parties a year; to kick off summer, to close summer out, and a New Year's Eve party (which is themed with costumes!)

    I love to entertain, which is good, because I'm one of the only people I know that does it!!

  • We are 27 and 29 and you can almost always bet there is a BBQ at our house each weekend. Huge families and since we have the youngest baby who likes to be at home, its always at our house. But its not a high class entertainment thing, its pretty country lol.

  • My Immediate family and us would get together every week if we all lived near to one another. However, I have two sisters living across the country, and my oldest sister and parents live two hours away. Therefore, we're not able to gather together that often.

    DH's family lives all within a 15-30 mile radius of us and we rarely see any of them. One side of the family is hard to get in touch with, though most of them come to virtually anything we plan. The other side is unreliable and we can rarely get them to come to anything.
