Visitacion Valley Grocery Outlet & 2 $25 Gift Card Giveaway-Ends 5/20

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.  My grandparents, who have lived in the neighborhood for 4 decades, used to take the bus to Chinatown for all their grocery needs because they couldn't find it close to home.  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!   When I lived in Visitacion Valley, I would have to drive to all the surrounding neighborhoods to get everything I … [Read more...]

The Christmas Angel Review & Giveaway-Ends 12/15

Wow, I can't believe it's December and I am writing a post that is Christmas related!  Time is flying by too fast.  So for the last 2 years, I have actually been looking into something like the Elf On The Shelf (EOTS), where kids can look forward to finding a surprise in the morning.  However, I never brought myself to make the purchase for one because I didn't like the message/purpose of the EOTS.  I didn't like that the elf was supposed to be Santa's messenger keeping tabs on children and if they were "good" they got gifts and if they were "bad" they didn't get anything.  I wanted Kiggster to behave not for gifts but because she loves and respects us.  Also, I hated thinking that EOTS always seemed to be a naughty elf who was checking up on all the kids but setting a bad example?!  So I was thinking of making the purchase this year but using the doll in my own way. Well, in searching for the right vendor to purchase it from, I came across The Christmas Angel and fell in love! The … [Read more...]
