An Adventure Avec Ma Mère

In spite of the mundane occurrences that happen  through out my normal school week, occasionally gems of something interesting occur.

Last whateverdayoftheweekitwas, my mom and I went down to Bountiful music to pick up some sheet music for a bass solo I am learning. After we left, we mutually agreed that we weren't really in the mood to go home, so we were going house browsing.

I would say house shopping, but there are only so many homes for sale in my school district, and there are only so many times you can drive past all of them and find something new. So instead, we drove into Bountiful to go look at some homes that were..... em.... not in our price range.

This home was actually from another "browsing above our price range" trips we took in Layton. 

I love these little trips with my mom. It is a great bonding experience, and most certainly not homework. Although, it is a little distressing to see some much Utah architecture, especially in the high end houses. 

This home that you can't see very well is hands down my most favorite house in all of Utah. This is a Wrightian Prairie style home. I nearly screamed when I saw it. It has many excellent copies of elements from the Robie House, and it is the most beautiful thing I have seen since I moved here. I would have died to be able to go in it. 

I legitimately thing that this may be the most valuable house in the Bountiful Area. It was amazing to be that high on the mountains, and the view was to die for. (Seriously, so much smog).


One more photo! 

Living in the land of Mormon Church Architecture, where all the Chapels were built in the 1800's, the 70's or in the the past decade, it kinda gets frustrating seeing all there architecturally deficient buildings. 

The Chapel you see above is in fact a Chapel built in the 70's. But.

I love it.

There is just something about the front design, and that post Modern Spire that just makes me so happy. I dunno what it is, but I really like it. 

Ta ta for now!
