Cheers! A legal name change has take place!

Yesterday was a big day in the Whimsy household...  I officially - as in recognized by the United States Government - took Mr. Whimsys last name... finally.  

I know, I know, its been a long time coming.  We have been married for well over a year and I have had plenty of reminders from friends that this was long over due.  As in, it has been lingering on my post wedding to-do list since last March.  In my defense, I feel like I had some valid excuses - i.e. travelling and did not want to get a new passport, hadn't gotten a new license, etc.  It honestly did not seem like a pressing matter.  On non-legal things, I always signed with my new last name, my work uses my new last name, etc. 

I realized the impending need of getting the name changed when I registered for Baby Whimsy's birth at the hospital.  I had to fill out the forms with the name on my insurance - which is my maiden name  (because the name on the insurance card is the same name on the Social Security office uses).  It occurred to me as Mr. Whimsy and I sat in the cubicle that I was setting everything up so that on Baby Whimsy's birth certificate, her parents would have two different last names at the time of her birth.  Not exactly the ideal situation for our very nuclear family.  

So as of 1pm yesterday, the ball was set in motion to rectify the situation.  I marched myself (err, waddled my way) into the Social Security administration office, took a number and waited to be called to the window.  I diligently answered all the questions in order to prove that I was who I said I was.  And less than an hour later I left with a crisp sheet of 80# printer paper stating that my new Social Security card would be in the mail in 2-3 weeks.  Scratch that item off the list!

Today I made a copy of proof of my name change for HR and now I just have to wait for insurance to be changed over, then I have to re-preregister with my correct name at the hospital and with my doctor.  And then wala: Baby Whimsy's parents have the same last name!

So please, friends and family, have 2 glasses of champagne (one for me and one for you) to celebrate.  This item, a carry over from my wedding to do list and top item on my "we are going to have a baby and this stuff needs to get done asap" has finally been taken care of.  Cheers!

NOTE: Despite the delayed name change, I have been legally married according to Washington County since my and Mr. Whimsy's wedding on March 26.  Don't let my sister try and convince you otherwise.
