Extra Long Weekend and Marrying a Condo

Did you think I forgot about you? I've been a bad, bad boy, neglecting my blogging duties such as I have. There's just no excuse, other than being insanely busy. But I have today off to make for an extra long weekend.

My brother and his boyfriend are in town. They arrived on Wednesday and have been staying with my sister the last couple of nights but today I'm taking them into town and then they'll be spending the weekend with us. We've got lots of fun plans!

So kind of big news: Looks as if Chris and I are getting a condo in Florida. This will be for vacations and an investment. Everything is under agreement now. We're just waiting for everything to finalize, with a closing toward the end of June. Exciting!

This changes our vacation plans we had laid out for the rest of the year. We had been planning on getting married in November and then taking a cruise. Instead, we're still getting married, but no big wedding and no cruise. Real estate instead. It's what we both wanted.

Besides lots of yard work, that's what has been going on. Till later!

I thought it was something I said or did. What a relief!

Terrific! Can't wait to see more pictures! When do you close?

Thomas (Tom) Rimington said...

Awesome news, and a much better investment than a big wedding or expensive honeymoon cruise! Let us know where it is and if you guys are planning any weekly rentals!

Very good news, the marriage in particular!

You commented on mine: "Congrats! And so glad you like the Tuscan Grill. We should meet up there one day!"
Yes, that was my first thought when you said you hadn't been there in a while and wanted to go back. We'd love to.

Congrats on the pending. Will Bandit like the heat and humidity of Florida?
Enjoy your long weekend.

I want a condo in Florida too! Too bad all the money is locked up in the present buildings. Where did you settle on, Fort Lauderdale?
