NOW OPEN: The University of Utah Health Care Clinic in South Jordan


I took my daughter last thursday to the Girls Night Out Event at The University of Utah Health Care South Jordan Health Center.  It was such a fun, informative, and surprisingly inspirational night!  We quickly met Channel 2 News Anchor Mary Nickles who was the Key Note Speaker.  

Mary was asked to get a mammogram for a segment of the show awhile back.  Later she finds out that she has breast cancer!  She said that Utah has the highest percentage of women who do not get mammograms and noted that if you have boobs you are at risk. :)  

Mary was very inspiring as she told us about her fight with cancer and how she had so much support from the community.  I was also amazed by her attitude about it all.  amazing..  If you're interested she created a blog about her experience at My Journey Through Breast Cancer.


The new facility is beautiful and doesn't feel (or smell) hospital like at all.  If I lived closer this would definitely be a place I would frequent.   With all of the services they provide this could be a one-stop shop kind of place!  While at the event I visited their Dermatology booth and I got to look at myself with a black light to see how bad my sun damage is.  Luckily I faired well.  Sunscreen everyday for me baby!!  They told me that most sun damage is done before you turn 18!   

Here is a list of services they provide:

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
