Thankful Merry Happy #Utah Biz Appreciation #Giveaway - $20 Visa Gift Card

It's been quite a year and, frankly, I'm glad it's almost over! A friend of mine made me laugh when she said that 2017 has been a dumpster fire kind of year! But all in all, I'm very grateful for what I've been given this year--whether through my own efforts, the kindness of others, or especially my own little nuclear network of family and friends. I'd like to pass it along and thank some of the great people who have helped me along the way this year. They are some of the Utah businesses that have helped me and my family keep our lives going along smoothly while everything else sometimes seemed to fall apart around us.

This is a Utah Giveaway, featuring 10 local businesses that I'd love for you to give a shout-out to and help me thank them. Also, maybe it will spur your memory about some of the great local businesses that have helped you out this year! I'm sure they would love to hear about it from you! Here's a quick round-up of the businesses that I've chosen!

Aveda Institute in Provo is the best way to get an amazing facial. Getting regular facials has been proven to keep your skin beautiful and maintained. And no one does it better than Aveda! With their own vast array of natural skin care options, they are trained to give you the best option for your skin and hair when you are away from the spa. I love getting pampered there and I know you will too!
Bank of American Fork in Utah and Salt Lake Counties - This is a local bank that truly gives back. I have banked with them for over 15 years and I am so pleased with their services. I love how they provide a beautiful yearly calendar to the local schools. It is the best calendar that I have ever seen and it's free! Their online banking is very easy to navigate and their customer service is also very good! I love the monthly interest deposit in my checking account, based on my balance, which is no-fee! Even my dog gets excited when I go because they always have a treat for her!

Brick Oven Pizza in Provo, South Jordan, and St. George - I love going to Brick Oven! Whether I want pizza, salad, or dessert, they have it all covered. Sometimes, I'm not in the mood for pizza when my hubs want it, but that's ok because Brick Oven has a great salad bar! They have a great atmosphere, and good food. What more do you want? And they're local!

CrEATe Donuts in Sandy. Not all desserts are created equal. But all desserts should be created according to what you enjoy most. I love CrEATe for that reason. Order your base dessert--and then add what you love to it! And for this time of year, their pure Belgian drinking chocolate is a must-try!
Help U Mail in Sandy, UT Located in the Smith's shopping center on 1300 South in Sandy, Help U Mail is a comprehensive packaging, copy, and mailing center. Their staff is very helpful and you can talk with them about any project you have and they will give you great ideas and solutions. I've consulted with them several times and they have been very helpful! They mainly rely on word of mouth and that is how I heard about them. I'm passing it along to you!

Mountainside Spa in Holladay and at Alta - I love this group of local spas geared to those who love living and recreating around the beautiful mountains of the Salt Lake Wasatch Mountain Range. They have amazing facials and massages at 2 locations in Alta for after a long day of skiing or hiking. And at their Holladay location, they can actually come to you if you live within 15 miles, and do a Spa party for you!
Nathan Chandler, DDS in Sandy, UT This is my dental office, and I really love their friendly staff and how easy-going Dr. Chandler is. He is also really funny at times, when he gets on a roll. He and his hygienist had me laughing in the dental chair one day, while they were working on me. Not the most comfortable time to be laughing, but fun nonetheless! They're good at what they do and they care about your teeth! I very highly recommend them!

Play It Again Sports in Orem and Salt Lake
Sports equipment can get pricey, especially if you've got a few kids that all play different sports. That's why it's nice to get "almost new" sports equipment for a lot less than you'd pay for brand new stuff. We've been disc golf players for years and they are our go-to disc golf store. They have bags, discs, and other equipment that keeps us happy and ready to go play our favorite sport!

This Is The Place Heritage Park in Salt Lake City is one of the premier attractions west of the Mississippi. Although they welcome thousands of visitors every year, the park still manages to keep that old fashioned, historical feel to it that is so valued. Located high on the East Bench of Salt Lake City, it offers spectacular views of the city and mountains. No matter which season you visit, there is always something fun going on!

 Xage Medical Spa in Provo, UT - I have loved going here because they have a really friendly and knowledgeable staff. I recently blogged about my Ultherapy experience, with a follow-up post coming in February. Dr. Stuart Porter is the best. He actually has two adjoining offices and practices. At Xage, he is the lead injectionist and is one of the best in the state! His other office, Integrative Medicine, is a general medical practice that specializes in hormone balance for both men and women.
