Speaking of weather (from Danielle's thread), it reminded me of this.

Wednesday after leaving the SS office we saw this:

I took it as an omen, a sign, call it what you will :)

It was actually bright & wide enough to start the color spectrum over again and, if you look close, you can see the second one above it .. my phone sucks as a camera.

OMG!!! SQUEEEEEE!!!

This is AMAZING news! and you already did get the new license, with the correct name!! and even better a big "F" on it too. I am sooooo happy for you.

Ohh- Thanks for stopping by the hospital two weeks ago. It was so nice meeting you and Lori and I hope we can soon meet again.

Hugs,

Sarah

Why wouldn't they look at your hair Faith?  It's gorgeous. Congratulations on your name changes.

thank you, on both counts :)

Nice to hear Faith and welcome home. Wow! Finally the car is fixed. Congratulations on your name change docs. I'm sure you both need rest after all that has happened. It feels good to be Faith Nicole doesn't it! SQUEEEYAY!!!

:)

Well done dear now you have joined the "correct" name club.

and now I have proof!!

Thank you Sarah, not as big as your current happy steps yet still very big for me. I know that due to legalites you have to wait longer for your name .. that time will come!!

Absolutely. It was my pleasure to be able to swing in and not only see you, Jayne as well. We will plan to meet up again. It's not that far and we do need our vacation time  :)

My old license picture could have fit into a horror picture show.  They either have better equipment now, or Faith and I are so unbeliebte beautiful that even bad equipment makes good pictures of us!  Who knows?

Oooo! I know! For you and Faith and my sweetie @sassycassie, the “unbelievably beautiful” reason applies. For me it was the “better equipment.” The lady said, “you can smile if you want to.” I wanted to!!

Congratulations Faith, I know from personal experience, just how good it feels to get some official paperwork validating who you are. Well done girlfriend! BTW, in Colorado they don't allow you to smile...but if after five or more tries the smile is still there, you get it on the license. I tried not to smile but couldn't get rid of it.

Love and hugs for the two of you,

what they told me, it is not when you had a passport before.  I have a current dead name one, and that seems to be the only documentation they want to see as proof of citizenship for a new passport.

That was true for me. I only needed my old passport, my SS card, maybe my driver license, and the gender change letter from my doctor. My passport was long expired, too, but that was okay.

Now if you’ve never had a passport, the BC is probably required.

Having been born in Michigan, I can’t get the gender changed on my BC until after I’ve had the surgery. You can bet that paperwork will be on the way in late September!!

Good luck and enjoy the changed and soon to be correct documentation. I believe that there are four states, my own Ohio in that quartet, that will not change birth certificates at all. Hopefully that will change sometime.....

A while back Lori and I were out shopping. I came across a purse that I really liked. She told me to get it, so I did. Now, I like the purse, still, it seemed a bit plain.

For some time I've been looking at various pins. The downside was having the pin go with any outfit. Well now, the purse needed something and I needed a pin .. so .. here you have it.


**puppy purchased separately**

Today was support group day. It was ok. A few decent things brought up before the conversations went off track. What they did have was some people come in to do makeup. The gal really liked my hair  ;D she also liked the way I already had my makeup done. I told her to go ahead and try something a little different. This is the result




Yes, I'm tired. Still, I could overhear the 'pretty' and 'gorgeous' comments. I'm going to get an inflated ego if they keep that up.

I'm on my phone so that's an abbreviated rundown of today.

Oh, and the purse holds more .. you know, like extra emergency tissues.

Yes, you did look even great sitting in the chair while she was working on you!

They did enhance my makeup, too, and I went right away to Walgreen's, and had my passport pictures for the US and the German passport taken.

I haven't been as active here but I wanted to say how happy I am to hear you are now in version 2.0!  Name changes etc all prove you are crushing it!  Congrats!

not so tired today, phew. I still feel like I could sleep all day though. I can see by the over-abundance of replies that no one wanted to comment on that photo, I don't blame you. I look drugged up and run over after a bad night out.

Birth Certificate
IDIOTS! .. I can't get a certified copy of my own birth certificate because my name doesn't match. Lori can request one for me .. I can't get my own .. SAY WHAT!!??!!

On the plus side, I found out that I don't need one to get my birth cert amended anyways, so that saves me about $100.
ON the down side, I need an original notarized DR letter. Mine are original, not notarized. I had to request new letters and now I'm waiting ... again.

Went for massages yesterday afternoon. Felt really really good. I don't think I've been called lady so many times in a day, much less in just the hour it took. I was in shorts, t-shirt, no make-up

That's it. You can move along now to more interesting topics. I'm sorry to have distracted you with my ramblings.

Interestingly enough this is interesting…
So birth certificate before name change!

Nonsense Faith! I thought your picture looks great. And the puppy too ;D Your hair is getting long. I love it. I'm letting mine grow out long too. I may think about bangs?

true, a nonsense picture but what do you do? Puppy (not really, he's getting old) photo-bombed me. Walked in to take a peek just as I hit the button.

long hair, yep, I get those comments as well .. "Wow, your hair grows fast" .. always has. The reason the front is shorter than the back is because I used to trim the bangs a few times before getting my hair cut. This time around, no trimming. I went from collar length to mid back in ~15 months? Faster than average, not amazingly fast though. Average is ~6" / year. Individuals vary a lot.

Well, Lori and I finally got new phones. Sure, 2018 models. We had to shop price. Here's some selfie camera test shots ...

Dear Faith:
The comment reply from Jess is exactly correct...
...your new phone takes wonderful pictures...
BUT it is the person in the photos (YOU) that looks "more" wonderful.

You look beautiful in the pictures, and that last photo is definitely a keeper!!!  Lots of FUN! ;)
