So we have been trying to decide whether we should rent or buy down here. Right now is a great time to buy. As we looked at apartments and saw how much they were, Adam wanted to see if we could buy something. I was a lot more hesitant. It took a bit of convincing to make me feel good about it. Working for the City, I have come into contact with a lot of great agents. One of them found a 1300 sq ft duplex for $135,000. So we have been going through the motions to buy it. We put in our offer yesterday and hopefully it won't take too long. It is on a short sale, which means it is on the brink of foreclosure. It may take a little longer to get everything through because the homeowner and the bank must both accept the price. But as soon as we get that approval, it should be pretty quick. We are really excited about it. It is in a great little family neighborhood. We are hoping Adam can be moved in before we get married!! It would make the move a lot easier. So we'll see. As soon as I can get my computer to work, I will put some pictures up.
So we got our engagement pictures done on Tuesday night. It was pretty fun, except for the fact that we are both sick. We did get some good pictures so check out the site and let us know what you think.
Okay. We keep getting asked how we met and all the details. So I thought I would write a blog about it. Any comments by Adam will be in ( ). It hasn't been very long, but we are excited about it. We met on Mother's day! I know not very long ago. We talked for about a half hour and learned that he knows my sister-in-law. He couldn't remember exactly what she looked like, so we decided he'd come over the next night to look at pictures. We ended up talking for eight and a half hours on Monday night! It was great. We were up until 4:30! While we were talking I put my number in his phone. So on Tuesday I get a text from a number I didn't recognize and it was Adam. He had been looking through his contacts to call someone else and saw my name. We texted through the day and he asked me out. He picked me up that night and we went miniature golfing. It was a blast! And of course I won golfing (and his heart). :) We went to eat at Ruby Tuesday, and we split a meal. I loved it. Anyone who knows me, lately I don't eat a full meal. So when we were done, we went to his apartment and watched a movie. Adam likes to have a sweet any time of the day, so he wanted to make brownies, but we were still full. So we watched the movie. At one point he tried to kiss me, but I denied him. We won't get into why, but I had just recently gotten out of a relationship and wasn't quite ready. But I really did want to kiss him. So after us trying to kiss a couple times(or 5), we finally kissed. It was great!! When we did kiss, we knew something was different. Well I finally got home in the early morning. But because of the lack of sleep on Monday night, and no sleep on Tuesday night, I was feeling very ill. So I called in sick to work. I texted Adam and he came over after a little bit. We just talked and took a nap. After talking for awhile we decided this was really different, and we decided to get married. He is the most amazing man I have ever met. He treats me like a princess and does the things he knows I love. Our personalities are a little different but we are learning. We agree on a lot of things, some things we need to talk about but it's fun doing it together. Anyways, that's the story, at least part of it.
