I just realized I haven't put up any photos from the trip down to Bluff I took. Come Spring, I'll be doing a Design/build studio for school where a group of students design and build a home for a family on the Navajo Indian Reservation. I'll spend two weeks down there, then one week back in SLC. Posted by Picasa
Here's some preliminary drawings from my latest project. Our final review is on the 5th of December. Man that's coming up quickly. The stress of the end of the semester is starting to hit me pretty hard, so please excuse any harsh comments or lack of contact. Posted by Picasa

From the watch tower

Here's a cool one (I think) of Terri looking out over the canyon from one of the old studio/lookout buidings along the rim. Posted by Picasa


Comin' at 'cha from the Grand Canyon

Here's my two leading ladies, taking caution at the edge of the Grand Canyon. Posted by Picasa


We made it home from Thanksgiving and Arizona without any problems. We left Mesa on Saturday night and stayed at a hotel near the Grand Canyon. So on Sunday morning we stopped at the Grand Canyon for a little sight seeing. P r e t t y spectacular! This is a self portrait of the two of us. We were afraid Denali wouldn't see the slight drop off, so she stayed in the car for this one.


Happy Thanksgiving!
We head to Phoenix tomorrow to my Grandma and Grandpa's house and will be back Sunday. Posted by Picasa



Our new neighbor told me on Saturday that he used to be a professional bounty hunter. Come visit soon... Posted by Picasa

Super busy

So, Tristan has been SUPER busy with school, so I decided that it was time for me to learn how to post to our blog all on my own. You probably wouldn't think it would be that hard for me considering I make a living as a technical writer documenting very spendy software systems - but it was. yay me.

Anyway, we're leaving for Phoenix on Wednesday morning for Thanksgiving and we're super excited to be able to actually spend some time together. Tristan and I haven't seen each other for more than a few hours at a time since we moved into our new house. Last night I clogged the garbage disposal and Tristan said he is beginning to think I am sabotaging things at the house to make him come home from school. (as you may have heard, the furnace broke on me one day after we moved in). Anyway, the garbage disposal is now fixed but I was horribly embarassed to have to go out and buy a plunger at 10:00 at night. I told the check out lady that "it wasn't what she was thinking, and it was really for my kitchen sink."

For your viewing pleasure, you get to see one of my favorite pics from the wedding (and it happens to be one of the only photos i have on my work computer).

That's all... Love, Terri Posted by Picasa


Don't have any new exciting photos to put up right now. It's another busy week at school (surprise, surprise). But here's a random one that I like.


this is the back of our place. It needs some work, but winter is hitting this week, so it'll probably have to wait until the spring. But maybe not, it never gets really cold here.


Terri is so sad that she's in Chicago and wasn't here for the delivery of our new stove, that I had to take a picture and put it up for her. As you can tell, I didn't blow myself up.
