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 […]

One Sweet Slice

Monday, January 16th, 2012 in Love of Local in Utah

To all my local friends: The SassyScoops.com ladies always take off a couple of months during the holidays and don’t go out to do reviews or write anything. I wanted to tell you that we are FINALLY back and reviewing a place I set up and can’t sing enough of their praises. I hope I don’t get […]

*New* Utah Museum of Natural History

Thursday, January 5th, 2012 in Love of Local in Utah

We bought a family pass to the new Utah Museum of Natural History less than a week ago and we already have been up there twice. I am just blown away at how they have put this museum together… I am finding it hard to write a post about it! Let me try to relay […]

Soldier Hollow Classic

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

I enjoy being a “dog person” and being married to someone who loves dogs even more than I do. Both of us come from families that don’t love dogs too much, and I don’t remember really talking about our love for dogs when we were dating. But right after we got married, I begged my […]

Oh Sweet Sadie

Friday, September 16th, 2011 in local, Love of Local in Utah

There is a GIVEAWAY at the end! So be sure to check it out and enter. Oh Sweet Sadie is an Art & Gift Show in Daybreak, Utah. It is 5 minutes away from my house and is a VERY DANGEROUS ART AND GIFT SHOW FOR ME TO ATTEND. They don’t know I am writing […]

Kim Orlandini Photography

Monday, September 5th, 2011 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

Beautiful Kim met us downtown at the library to do the girls’ annual photos and to take my sister’s bridal shots. Kim does birth story photos, newborn photos, kid photos, family photos, bridal photos and everything in between. She uses FILM, which means the photos are natural. She is caring, sweet, professional, talented and dependable. […]

Up House in Herriman Utah

Saturday, July 9th, 2011 in local, Love of Local in Utah

The Up House in Herriman, Utah is super close to us. To get the girls’ wiggles out right before we left for California, we walked over there to check it out. The builder happened to be standing there just grinning at his work. His company is Bangerter Homes and he thinks his list price for […]

Little People’s Dental in South Jordan Utah

Sunday, June 26th, 2011 in local, Love of Local in Utah

You know, I really didn’t know I should have been “choosy” with the girls’ dentist…I kind of just figured if the dentist seemed like a nice guy and the atmosphere was kid friendly, that I would be ok. Until I learned a lot more and had a completely different experience with Dr. David M. Stewart […]

SassyScoops.com Update

Sunday, June 26th, 2011 in local, Love of Local in Utah

As you guys know, the beautiful Emily and I co-own SassyScoops.com where we go out with friends twice a month to review local Utah companies. It is fun. I mean, free GNOs for us! But it is work running the site so this is the last update for a few months. We take time off […]

Baby Photographer in Utah

Thursday, May 5th, 2011 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

KimOrlandini.com came and took Shae’s pictures when she was one week old. Kim was so sweet and gentle with Shae.  It was a very different experience from any other newborn photos I had done with my other girls. She came to my home to do it, which was great because when I needed to feed […]
