Just signed the contract last night!!! I signed the contract to sell my condo last Monday, and then signed a contract to buy a new place last night!!!

I'm so excited! My girlfriend and I found a townhome a LOT closer to work - we used to drive 50+ miles one way, and now I will be about 15, and she will be about 25 miles.

Now I just have to wait the 6 weeks until we close!!!

congrats! moving closer to work is the best...i am now in walking distance and i walked today...can't beat that! i used to live 20+ miles...

so, now, not to be nosy or pushy, but you and your girlfriend...shouldn't you buy a ring now that you've bought a new house?

(oh my god--i must be thinking that my boyfriend can read this. we are in the same boat, so my comment wasn't THAT out of line...)

I bought the ring BEFORE our house sold, it just so happens that it all worked out. I've already asked her dad, and bought the ring (it's in my safe deposit box until I get 'my plan' all scheduled).

out of the frying pan...
Just don't do what my hubby did and tell all your friends, etc. BEFORE you ask her. He had this big elaborate plan that completely blew up in his face thanks to one of my migraines. He ended up asking me that night anyway, it just didn't quite play out the way he'd set up (and boasted about) so when we went out to dinner with our friends who were expecting this great story - there wasn't really anything to tell.

Oh, and congrats, BTW!

Congrats Skunkboy. Boy you sure have come a long way in the last couple of years. I still remember your thread about pants in the dryer or something like that.

Also, don't tell all your friends first, or for sure, someone will tell her before you do!

Congratulations, and enjoy your new home!

Congrats on the new home AND the impending engagement! Shhhh... don't tell anyone else until you ask her and she says yes and it's a done deal.

Yes, it was pants in the washer.

I've told her dad, my best friend (he won't tell), a teller at work who saw the ring box when I put it in my safe deposit box, and now the BOL community.

I'm afraid to tell anyone else until afterwards, as many of my surprises for her have been spoiled, so this one HAS to go well!
