    Gotcha, @copa. The living situation makes sense. It sounds like you are both feeling it out, and he is being cautious too since you are neighbours. I do think there is some interest like others said. But if you just get a fun crush/new friend then that’s fine!

    Neighbor and I texted a bit more last night and we’re going out for Mexican food and margaritas tonight, too! 🙂 I’m excited but kinda nervous!

    Aww Copa Mexican food and margaritas, love it! Let us know how it goes :)Being a little cautious makes sense, but I think that will mean regardless of how things work out you are both more likely to be mature and respectful.

    BF and I are closing on our house two weeks from today (hopefully)! It’s been an exhausting process, including having one place fall through due to a crazy neighbor (we couldn’t agree on dividing the roof). But we found an amazing place (with a private roof and city skyline view!)

    Since bf and I are not married and he is a Canadian citizen on a work visa, not a permanent resident, and only has a year and half old US credit score, getting approved on a mortgage together is HARD. We will find out by Wednesday or so if we got it, otherwise the entire mortgage will go in my name (thankfully I was able to get pre-approved based on my salary alone). If we have to do that, it’s complicated as he has most of the down payment and can’t gift more than 50% to me, so I would have to take a loan against my 401k (and have him pay it off right after we close). If we have to do that, we will literally be up to the minute getting the mortgage before closing. I am stressed as hell.

    Also, the new place had FOUR windows with water leaks so trying to get that sorted with the seller. Walked in for the inspection on a very rainy day and was like…..oh crap.

    Great location and perfect timing! They City sold the land/2FM maintenance facility on the North Branch, east of the Highway. I’ve seen schematics of the redevelopment. My company is designing/constructing the new 2FM maintenance facility in a different location. Lots of cool things are happening on the river right now. We have the South Branch work too.

    Edt: Sorry, I get excited about big development projects here since I help us position for it, instead of the tried and true traditional engineering work, like roads and water treatment plant work. And ever since we bought in what I hope is an emerging neighborhood (West Town), I get excited about real estate too.

    Oh nice!! Can’t wait to see what they build there! I’m pretty excited to be able to walk to record and book stores and just experience the city in a new way. West Loop has gotten a bit stale for me, and we eat at the same places. We will be able to go to more new places for dates!

    Oh, and that’s one of the sites being tossed around if the 2nd Amazon HQ comes here. I highly doubt our city “wins.” But that site is a high contender here for that.

    Also, my cousin and her husband LOVE Mott Street. I have yet to go.

    You know you’re an adult when the first time you hear your city is on the short list for Amazon HQ you think “YES that would be amazing for my property value!!”

    Mott street is definitely on the list! And Schwa 🙂 Now I am just secretly hoping to bf proposes sometime soon. Like this year ish. Just because I am so stinkin happy.
