This weekend I’m off about town to finally tackle my name change. In practice, the whole thing was done long ago… I’ve even started to get used to introducing myself. But when I pull out my license or write a check, I still have to revert back, and it’s all really kind of a mess.
I’ve waited so long because little did I know, getting ahold of our marriage certificate would take two months on its own, since I had to have it mailed from California. Naturally, I also had to send my *request* for the darn thing by mail (to be carried on horseback across the plains, I assume… possibly by Kevin Costner).
So at this point I’m sure you can imagine my excitement to finally have the chance to get this done… even if it does mean that I have to go to each place – social security, DMV, etc – individually and hand them my certificate so they can send it by carrier pigeon into the abyss.
I’m hoping to have it all done by the time I have to travel in May, but I’m not holding my breath. Have you all had experience with this process? It’s so much crazier than I would have ever imagined!
Here are a few of my favorites this week… I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Keep your fingers crossed for me that all goes smoothly.
This cream cheese pound cake.
Loving the idea of a flower crown over a drop veil — such a pretty DIY.
Salted caramel shortbread gets me every time.
