Friday Favorite - Dick's Market

I know it's actually Thursday and that I had two different posts today, but I already had one scheduled for tomorrow and I didn't want to bump today's book review back. So there you go! Hopefully in a few weeks my Friday Favorite will actually stay on Friday!



Anyway...this week's Friday Favorite is very much specific to not only Utah, but really Davis County. Dick's Market has been my go to grocery store for about 15 years. I love everything about it! I love the employees, the bakery, the produce department, and the layout of the store. I also really love that they go out of their way for you. One time I wanted a specific ingredient for a recipe that they didn't carry. The store employee over ordering went out of her way to order what I was asking for and I've noticed that they are actually still carrying it.

The bakery is amazing! I love their eclairs, their donuts, their cakes...and really the list goes on and on. I currently have a favorite thing that I get in the bakery. I buy Texas donuts for birthdays. They are amazing! They're the size of your face and so soft on the inside. I might actually like these ones better than the little ones which I love! I love handing these donuts to people and seeing their reactions. They write on them if you want, and we even got one decorated like a pumpkin one time, so much fun!

They also have a dedicated butcher station. I LOVE this too! You can pick up pre-made entrees like Chicken Cordon Bleu, Bacon-wrapped Chicken breast. Or you can ask the butchers questions. They are always friendly and knowledgeable, even when you ask strange questions. (I might sometimes, I'm a test shopper for a company and sometimes they want strange items.)

I love the small town feel of this locally owned grocery store. Check them out if you get a chance!

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 …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries.
