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

REVIEW: A Very Veggie Easter Collection!

Easter is early this year and we've already started celebrating by watching A Very Veggie Easter Collection!!  It contains popular VeggieTales Easter DVDs "Twas the Night Before Easter" and "An Easter Carol." Also, this set includes 2 popular CDs - "A Very Veggie Easter" and "Hosanna! " The Easter CDs include Amy Grant and Mark Hall!  This is a perfect gift for Easter!  It's also a great way to remember the real reason for the holiday.     A Very Veggie Easter Collection runs for 97 minutes and is on sale now for $16.99!  "An Easter Carol" is one of my favorite episodes.  I have always loved that story and it is certainly applicable to Easter.  VeggieTales has once again found a fun, interesting way to portray important principles.   As far as kid's shows go VeggieTales continues to be one of my favorites.  I can sit down and watch one with my kids and laugh out loud!  I find them just as enjoyable as they do

Winner Zoey's Attic Personalized Gifts was created by Erin Delanty, a new mom at the time, who alongside her husband, created this personalized gift site after they searched high and low for "out-of-the-ordinary" newborn baby tees with no luck.  Erin decided to use her background as a graphic designer and web developer to design her own line of products.  I'm glad she did. Her designs are adorable! Erin talks about her inspiration: "Family and friends inspire me the most.  By watching my own baby grown and observing my parents become grandparents, I constantly see new ways of looking at the world. I really do believe that Zoey's Attic offers cool, unique big brother and big sister products that reflect a fun unique time of life for multiple generations. " Personalized baby announcement poster I was able to review a sibling set similar to the one featured below by Zoeys Attic .  My kids love that their shirts each have their names al
