Officially Becoming Mrs. Bellar

So........I am now is the process of changing my name from Sarah Jo Kelly to Sarah Kelly Bellar. Now, I got a few warnings of how much of a pain this is and that I should not look forward to it, but I just kept thinking - it can't be that bad. Well, they were right - I was wrong. I started to do this the week we got back with basic stuff i.e. e-mails, voicemails, facebook, you know the basics. Then it was on to bank accounts, social security card, passports - but first I needed a new license. There was only 3 people in front of the me at the DMV, but somehow it still took over and hour. Drivers license - check, all bank accounts - check......next social security office. So I had the day off and decided that was the best time to hit up the dreaded Social Security Office, we googled it - got lost - found it - only to find out that they moved and were on the other side of town. Really?! Come on google! So then we find the new office and wait for about 45 minutes, social security card -check. This week I changed all my debit and credit cards and ordered new checks. Still left to do, Car Title, Mortgage, Car Insurance, Passport ($75 - really?!, I just got that thing a year ago!), and insurance - which I can't do until I get my ss card. Ugggghhhh, it is never ending. But on a happy note, I am a Bellar! :)

Ugh, that has always been something I have NOT looked forward to. As much fun as it will be to SAY my new name and like change it on Facebook and stuff, I don't want to have to do the rest of it! At least I can come to you and you can give me a list of everything that I'll need to change and where I have to go to do it! :)
