Birthday & Spring Break Week

Friday, May 2nd, 2014 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

After our jam packed weekend I decided I just wanted to be alone with my girls. So I like a horrible mother took them out of school for a week to hang out with me. We stayed downtown at the Grand America and did our favorite things. Eating at bakeries, being lazy at a nice […]

Calm Afternoon at Memory Grove Park

Thursday, May 1st, 2014 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

After the busy day of a birthday and a baptism, Tyler requested a quiet day with just our little family. He even came up with a plan, which does not happen, ever. So I knew it must be important to him. He took us to Memory Grove Park downtown. It was a simple and calm […]

Field Trips

Sunday, January 26th, 2014 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

Luckily I have a sister in law that likes mini field trips as much as I do. Sometimes we can be at the same thing on the same day and not even realize it. Actually now that I think about it one time we even ran into each other so we went on the hike […]

Pumpkin Walk in Logan

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 in Love of Local in Utah

***sorry for the overload of heavy picture posts, this is my last one for awhile!***   The Pumpkin Walk in Logan is my favorite Fall outing. Boy oh boy is Logan magnificent. Sadly my sister and her family don’t live there anymore. So I was surprised to find myself driving up there alone with the […]

Halloween House in Daybreak

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 in Love of Local in Utah

Sometimes I blog things because I wish I could have found it in the search engine myself. I’ll google where or when something is and can’t find it anywhere online. So for those of you looking for where the Halloween House in Daybreak is, let me tell you! The Halloween House in Daybreak is on […]

Fairy Forest in Kamas

Thursday, August 15th, 2013 in Love of Local in Utah, Nature

Yes, the fairy forest in Kamas is worth going to! It is a bit deep into the woods so people leave it be. People go in and make little fairy villages, hang things in the trees, leave figurines, paint rocks, etc. It is worth it to go but let me suggest… #1 You make time […]

Birthday Party at One Sweet Slice

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah, Parties

One Sweet Slice is my favorite cupcake shop in Utah location wise, taste wise, quality wise, customer service wise, and dining room size wise. Did that last one make sense? I am trying to say that they have a good amount of seating, space, it is super cute in there. That is what I was […]

Annual Pictures with KimOrlandini.com

Friday, July 13th, 2012 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

Kim from KimOrlandini.com takes the girls pictures every year. Quickly I will tell you why; she uses film (I do not like over photoshopped, fake looking, your kid’s eyes are glowing, that-does-not-even-look-like-them photos), she is sweet, gentle, and fun (perfect personality for my three girlies), she snaps pictures that look like real life (they have […]

Pretty Darn Funny by Desert Book

Monday, April 2nd, 2012 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

I have to be honest, I am not entirely sure why the store Desert Book does not appeal to me. I don’t go in there, don’t order things online, I haven’t even thought of the place–for years and years! When I think about what they carry, I wonder why. I could pick up Christmas presents […]

77kids in Utah

Monday, April 2nd, 2012 in Love of Local in Utah

I kind of feel like I should start the post saying something that a 7 year old would say like…. “Nah nah nah nah nah nah I knew about 77kids before all ya’ll!”  I did, it’s true. We have been buying clothes online from them since Abby was 2! I recommend the brand to lots […]
