Taking surveys to make extra money

It's been a while since I've posted about my adventures in survey taking.
There are so many great survey site and there are a few junk sites. I've had my run in with both types.
I'm glad to say that I've slowly weeded out the worthless survey sites and have been working hard with just a small handful of survey sites.

Some people think that survey sites are a scam. Well, they aren't. what they are is very selective.
Think about it this way, survey sites are sending out surveys to people who will make a difference in the marketplace. Business 101 tells you that companies do lots of research before they market their products to the general public. So what does this tell you? It tells me that companies are looking for people who will spend money. It's really that simple. So what kind of people spend the most money?

Well, in my experience, parents of young children seem to be the target demographic for many companies. They want to sell us their newest toys for Christmas, for children's birthdays, and for any other special occasion you can come up with. And its not just toys, it can be clothing, greeting card and even websites.

You sit back and think about that for a moment. Do you fall into a purchasing bracket in any of those categories?  If so, I have one of my favorite survey sites for any resident of the United States.
Click the link to get started. Give it a try, its free to sign up and it's free to participate, which any reputable survey site should be. YOU SHOULD NEVER EVER PAY to take ANY kind of survey. Remember, these companies need your opinion, you don't need them!

Blowing out the competition, Food trucking in the Fall

We had our last food truck event of the fall last weekend and it was a blow out!
No, really, Our food truck had a tire blow out on the way home. I was so scared to leave the trailer out in the country side in the middle of NOWHERE, TX!

We made a 45 minute drive home to pick up the spare, then a 45minute drive back to change out the tire, then another 45 minute drive back to home base. Needless to say, we were beyond exhausted by the time all was said and done. So tired, that the hubs and I called it a night by 9pm! Seriously? 9pm? Yes, 9pm on a Saturday night.  You'd think we were senior citizens. Thankfully, we have a couple of weeks off to recover before our Christmas events begin in early December!

If you haven't had a chance, please find our food truck and give us a like on FACEBOOK at www.facebook.com/larositatacos

Thank you!!


The kids broke my favorite coffee mug

        Yep, you read that right.
My two youngest kiddos broke my favorite coffee mug this weekend. I was a little sad and tossed it into the garbage without thinking. I didn't think about what my mornings would be like without this fabulous mug, until today!
        Today I made my usual Monday morning pot of coffee. As it was brewing I thought I'd wash the dishes. I don't like doing the dishes by hand that early in the morning, but how else would I get to my favorite mug?  I finally got the last dirty fork  washed and rinsed when I realized that I hadn't seen my mug, so, I went to the living room and looked in two of my favorite spots. The sofa is where I lounge and watch tv, and the side chair where I like to sit by the window to read. The mug wasn't at either spot!
        I racked my brain trying to figure out just where it could be, when all of a sudden it hit me.
Oh the horror as I sat down to compose myself, then I replayed the incident in my head.
My 7 year old wanted to help put my mug in the kitchen, well being the ever competitive duo that she and her 3 year old brother are, they began to struggle to grab the mug out of my hand, and that's when it happened. My mug hit another glass that my daughter was holding and it shattered.
        That was it. That was the last time I got to hold that beautifully made ceramic mug.
It kept me warm many a cold morning, it brightened my day many times. It lived its short 4 year life with me in pure happiness. At the very least, I can say that Senor mug lived a very full life.
May you rest in pieces Senor Mug. I wish I could say I'll find another one as good as this, but I'm sure I wont, but sure will try, after all, I'm still going to need my coffee and every one knows a lady needs her big, hot cup of Joe everyday.
