This past Saturday, May 3rd was the grand opening of a much needed grocery store in the Visitacion Valley area. Grocery Outlet on Bayshore Boulevard opened its doors to the neighborhood with some great festivities. They gave a pallet of food worth $1000 to the Visitacion Valley Strong Families, offered free coffee, free eco-frugal reusable bags for the first 500 customers, games, prizes, free face painting for the kids, and more! This area has been missing a good grocery store for quite some time.

However, with their age now, they aren't able to take the bus and carry all their groceries back home anymore, therefore Grocery Outlet being blocks away from their house, is something very needed!

If you've been around this blog for awhile, you'll know I love animated movies, probably more than kids do. I'm all about the animation, tween drama, and innocent humor! So when I heard about Escape From Planet Earth, I had to check out what it was all about. When I watched the trailer, it already had me laughing and just itching to see more. I read the synopsis and found out that Brendan Fraser was part of the cast...I have to say, I really like movies that he's in because most of them are really funny but don't involve adult or dirty humor! I can't wait to see it when it releases on February 15th and since Honey is such a sci-fi fanatic, I am sure he will love watching it too! Below you will find the movie synopsis, trailer, free Valentine's Day printables and a GIVEAWAY!!!! You can enter and find details for the giveaway at the bottom of this posting!
