I decided to cash-out on some surveys I do online.  I was pleasantly surprised that I had a few with 'high' cash-outs.

SendEarnings- $28.98
*This isnt so much a survey company as you get paid for reading emails.  Now you can do surveys & offers for a chance to earn more money. I usually stick with reading emails which requires you to click a link in order to get 'paid'.

Synovate (GlobalOpinionsPanel)- $10
*One of my favorites. I normally get to tests quite a few products.  They also have a low cash-out ($5).  One more thing I like is that even if you don't qualify they will still credit you with points (normally 100).

ACOP- $20

*I havent done a survey in quite sometime. I was really shocked to see such a high balance.

TOTAL: $101.98!

Hiltons of Branson!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Looking for somewhere new & different to go?  How about Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing in Missouri?!  This seems like an ideal vacation spot for those with kids.  There are museums, theme parks, festivals, and 49 live entertainment theaters to choose from!  Now if you're like me, you like to keep busy and have a list of things both parents would enjoy as long as the kiddos.  Also, with a vacation you are always looking for a good package deals on hotels.  Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel offers a wonderful package for $455 that includes 2 adult & 2 children tickets for Silver Dollar City, $25 voucher for Level 2 Steakhouse located on the second floor of the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel, and this is for 2 nights & 3 days!  Not a bad deal especially since there is so much to do within miles! Let me just add the rooms are BEAUTIFUL!

This sounds like a great place my family would enjoy. They have a lake near by which is perfect for a family pinic. My husband would love to attend the 3rd Annual Missouri Food & Wine Festival!  Im not big on wine, but show me the food and im there ;) There is really so much to do that I would need a little more than 3 days, lol.  If you're looking for a good place to have some fun...definitely check out  Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing.

Happy Mother's Day!

A mother understands what a child does not say. 
 ~Author Unknown

Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. 
 ~T. DeWitt Talmage

A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.
~Tenneva Jordan

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs… since the payment is pure love.
~Mildred B. Vermont

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
~Sophia Loren

Happy Mother's Day!
