We are licensed to wed! :)

On Tuesday we marched ourselves into the county courthouse... 
Up three flights of stairs to the Clerk's Office and bought ourselves a wedding license. 
We are now the proud carriers of a license to wed in the state of Arizona!

Mr. M was nervous because all he had with him was his driver's license. He was worried they would ask for a social security card or something and that was all at home... 
But they didn't! They didn't even ask for ID! 

They asked us to fill out a form with our names, socials, etc.. Typed it up while we waited a few minutes and called us back up to the window. She asked us to review everything to make sure it was correct... 
I skimmed over the parts she had typed in but Mr. M read the entire thing... Laughing the whole time. 
When I looked at what he was reading... 
"and do solemnly swear I am of no relation to Kassi..." 
He thought that was hilarious. 

To make things even more funny... She asked us to raise our right hands and repeat after her... It was basically this is my name, this is my birth date and I solemnly swear we are not related. 
Couldn't help it... like two kids we were giggling away. 
I know that's serious stuff in some places... But come on... You just gotta laugh. 

And for the record, Mr. M and I are not related. We swore to it Tuesday. Haha!

Another check mark on my Knot wedding checklist
That list is really starting to dwindle... YAY!!!

Completed TaskGet the marriage license and make appointments for blood tests (if necessary).

I giggled hysterically at the 'relations' bit, too. However here in NJ you /can/ legally marry your first cousin (but I can't marry my girlfriend, go figure. Oh well, we'll be going to NY!)

Congratulations on the wedding, I'm sure it is going to be BEAUTIFUL!

How funny is that. They don't check your I.D. to make sure you are who you say you are but they make damn sure you are not related? LOL, that's awesome!
