Love Everlasting

About the movie: Bridger Jenkins, a senior in high school, is an outsider with hidden scars and a lifelong dream to see the ocean. Living in poverty, his mother has done everything in her power to give her son a good life, but their world is once again turned upside down when Bridger's abusive stepfather threatens their lives. On the road with only 197 dollars to their name, Bridger and his mother embark on the journey of a lifetime. But a series of obstacles foil their plan and they end up stuck in the middle of nowhere - a small town that will prove to change their destiny. When Bridger has a chance encounter with a brown-eyed beauty shrouded in insecurity, sparks fly and an everlasting bond is ignited between two misfits longing for acceptance and true love. 







My review: I got to do the coolest thing last night, I got to go to a movie premier. You 
know...red carpet, limo, stars, people all dressed up, so awesome. And then, the coolest part - I got to meet and talk one on one with the star of the show, Lucky Blue Smith. I was amazed by how down to earth and kind he was. He was even a little bit goofy, just like the boy next door, not like the supermodel/actor/musician that you would think that he'd be. It was fun to hear him talk about his family and the goals that they set and how they keep the goals on the wall so they see them and think about them every day. He was
really such an amazing young man.

And then, the main event, the movie. I really enjoyed it. I liked the way Lucky, or Bridger was, he really seemed just how he was when I met him in real life. A little goofy, flawed, kind and thoughtful. I liked the way he was concerned about his mom, she was with a man who was not kind to either of them. It was really fun to watch the two of them together, they really did seem as though they could be mother and son in the show. 

And then there's Clover. At first she's a bit hard to get a read on, she's too busy pushing everyone away to tell how she is. But then she has her dream and you understand just a little bit why she's the way she is. I loved the way she ends up looking out for Bridger and pushing back against the bullies she's dealing with at school.

There's a whole great cast of characters in this one. There's Clover's dad, Mr. Williams the shop teacher, and Clover's friends. Clover's friends are hilarious, especially the red headed one, I can't remember his name right now. But he just knows that Clover's meant to marry him and he's kind of awkward in a really funny way. 

This is a great movie, I really enjoyed watching it. And guess what, it opens in theaters today. Make sure you take time to go check it out!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
