Spring cleaning!

We, or I should say I, have purged all unused toys and out grown clothes of all three of my kids. I sold some of the things on a facebook group page and that worked out pretty well. The stuff that wasn't fit to sell was given to our local shelter and thrift store.

I've also started the deep cleaning. I have a long way to go though. We have tons of windows and that means tons of blinds to clean.

I did buy myself a Rubbermaid spray mop. It's pretty darn awesome. I can wash and reuse the rag multiple times a day and don't have to worry about the swifter wet jet disposable pads you have to constantly buy. You'll be amazed at how much more dust and dirt the spray mop picks up, even after you have just swept. Yikes is all I can say about that! Lol

Food truck and marketing

Our food truck season is about to kick off again in a couple of weeks, and when it does we are going to be busier than ever. This will be our 3rd full year in the food truck industry and we couldn't be more pleased.  I knew we would do well, but I ha no idea how popular we at La Rosita tacos would be.  A friend of mine recently noticed our popularity and invited me out for coffee one morning, she wanted to talk business.

As we sipped on our coffees we talked about both our businesses and how happy we are to be self employed. There is no better feeling than being your own boss and setting your own hours. The food truck business is not glamorous at all, but it's a job that my husband and I do with pride and so does my good friend. She isn't in the food truck business though, she is in marketing and she shared with me a really neat piece of information that I think is too valuable to keep to myself.
She told me about a website called Listgiant.com.

It's a great resource for people trying to market their business to a large amount of potential clients. This website provides literally, giant lists of potential customers so that business owners can further their company in the market. It's such an interesting site and if you have your own business and are looking for a way to reach more consumers by the simple click of a button, then you should check out Listgiant.com

Funeral of a Dallas Firefighter

      This is my 300th blog post. I had wanted to make it fun and funny, but today I thought I'd share with you what my family and I did for Presidents' Day 2014. We paid our respects to a fallen hero. A firefighter who died in the line of duty on a busy ice covered bridge in Dallas. Fireman Tanksley will be remembered fondly by so many, and this procession just adds to all the good that one thinks of when they think, firefighters or first responders.

        May he rest in peace and may his family, 3 young children and his widow find some solace knowing that their hero is now in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.
