in other news

I will get back to posting about NY hopefully tonight. I have one more day left of adventures to write up. Being that I had some good news though, I thought i would quickly share it first.

1. I think I sold my condo. The agreements have been signed, but he has 7 days to go over the regulations with the option to back out. Keep your fingers crossed! 🙂

2. After the most horrific flight to date (i can tolerate turbulence, but this was pretty bad, and the kid next to me was literally freaking out, white knuckled, tears in eyes, close to hyperventilating – so i talked to him, telling him it was all normal and wed be fine, discussing his future college plans, etc, all the while, in the back of my mind i was thinking that soon we would all be wearing oxygen masks as we fell to our deaths), boy picked me up at the airport. Long story short, in the middle of the airport in front of gobs of people, he finally got on one knee and asked me to marry him. I never wanted an engagement ring, so he produced the ring that will be my wedding band – I have had my eyes on it for probably 10 years so to finally have it is pretty amazing. It is designed by Jack Kelege – isnt it beautiful? So to all you people who wondered if indeed we had already secretly eloped and just never admitted it and to all you people who wondered if it would indeed ever happen, now you have your answer:)
