In the past few weeks, SO and I have started talking about saving money to buy a house and where we would like to settle down. Part of that process has involved looking at houses online and doing some drive-bys to take a look at areas we are interested in. Yesterday, we were driving around and found an AMAZING home for SUPER cheap- foreclosure- and that got the engagement discussion going.
I’ve made it very clear to SO that I will not buy a home with him without at least being engaged. So as we were looking and talking about the dream home last night, he brought up the topic of rings. He was really cute…he asked if he wanted me to pick, or if he should pick, how that all works. He didn’t even really know that the woman typically gets two rings. I told him he could tie some string around my finger and I’d be happy. He, of course, replied with “yeah but…I want it to be…you know…” and I finished for him “nice?”. He nodded and grinned and I told him that I have ideas of what I like and so when we got home I sent him an e-mail with links to some rings I adore and my size.
He wants to get a house ASAP, like within a year. He was working out a budget to save a reasonable down payment last night, and by his calculations it could be as soon as 6 months before we have the moolah we’d need to really start thinking about it.
Aaah so excited bees!! Things are rolling along very nicely for the greenbeans!
