So...when you aren't working Friday isn't really that big of a deal, but still, I'm not going to turn down a reason to have a good day, haha!

How does a quick recap of random for the week sound?  Good?  Awesome!

Staying with The Sailor's aunt and uncle is awesome - they're seriously the sweetest people in the world.  But I'm not gonna lie, I'm so ready to be on our way.  I need to get back to some sort of routine, which is next to impossible when you're staying at someone else's house.  Not to mention I feel like a total heffer.  Have you ever heard that the more you eat, the hungrier you get?  Totally true!  I just keep eating...and not working out...::blah::  Every morning I wake up and I'm like "I'm totally going to go for a run" then I step outside and it's at like 95% humidity and I realize I would probably die if I tried to go for a run.  So I'm sticking to as soon as we get to California, I'm getting back on track.  I expect all of you to hold me to it...

I also colored my hair red this week.  It didn't turn out as bright as I wanted it to, but it is brighter than I thought it would be.  However, taking pictures with my phone doesn't show any red tones in it whatsoever, so I don't have pictures to share with you - just believe me that it looks awesome.  And I'm totally taking to the role of sassy-redhead, haha.

Our marriage certificate was ready to pick up, so we went and did that yesterday and then went to the social security office to change my name.  Crazy, right?  Well, I refused to drop any part of my maiden name, so now I have 2 middle names.  If I wasn't afraid of getting weirdo stalkers via the internet I would totally share my whole name with you, because it's pretty freaking awesome.  However I don't trust the internet that much...

When we were at the social security office I realized I had to sign the form and I looked up at the guy who was helping us as I was about to sign my "old" name and I was like "wait a second, do I have to sign his ::points at the sailor:: name?"  And the guy chuckled and was like, "well, in 24 hours 'his' name will legally be 'your' name in the system, so yes ::chucklechucklechuckle::"

And then I realized I had no flipping idea how to sign my name!  It starts with an H - couldn't remember how to do a capital H in cursive.  After I figured that out I hit a lovely little speed bump when I realized there's an S in my new name and I hate lowercase cursive Ss.  Grrrr.

Needless to say I spent a solid portion of the afternoon trying to come up with a way to sign my new name.  I still haven't settled on anything.  I'm strongly considering working on something that ends up looking like a big, barely legible squiggle:
I could totally rock a signature like that.

Last bit of randomness for today - so realizing that I couldn't even take pictures of my rockin' new hair color totally made me realize how I couldn't survive a cross country expedition without a real camera.  But I didn't really want to spend a small fortune on one.  So I turned to my favorite website, Craigslist, and found this awesome camera (Kodak Easyshare Z981) for $60!!!!!
Now I just need to get a cord to hook it up to a computer, lol, because it didn't come with one.  But you seriously can't beat the price, and the photo quality is awesome!

All in all, I've had a pretty awesome week new hair, new name, new new life is totally starting to come together!  How has your week been?

Until next time...


  1. I purposefully made my "new" signature a squiggly dr scratch type signature. Only the first letters of my name are identifiable. My last name went from short and simple to long and complicated and I have to sign my name a million times a day at work. Good luck working yours out!

  2. I have been practicing my new last name. I've been signing my name forever and it will be an adjustment! Yay for Criagslist deals! I want to see your new hair!


I always love getting some blog love...
