The name plate

You know how you see on houses those cool name plates?

"The So-and-So's
Established 1995"

Well, being that I'm finally buying a house (yes, offer placed, offer accepted, more on that later I promise!) I thought it might be fun to get one of those for my new house.


Who am I?

Am I my current last name? Because that was given to me by my soon to be ex. And I'm not entirely sure I want to be that anymore.

Am I my maiden name? Because then I won't have the same last name as G! And my sign will only reflect me, and not HIM, and the house, the HOME is most certainly his too. It's not just me.

Am I someone who has yet to be determined? Because I do plan to be part of a larger group. More kids. Loving doting partner. Maybe a kitten.

Screw it, I think I'll just get one of those signs that says something like "Live Laugh Love" and call it a day. Because really, I'm getting a house and I get to make a home and I don't care what name you put on it, it's going to be full of LOVE and Laughter and I plan to really LIVE there.

Also? House warming party at my new place some time early November! I can't wait to show it off.

wow! congratulations!

the name plate... identification... *sigh*

you make me think.

i like the idea of going with a phrase and not a name... a mantra.

what a great home you will make.

I am ashamed I did not think of that sooner @CaLL! Of course!

I can't wait to watch PSU football in my own house!

@Nic thanks. I do hope so. I can't wait to get in. 6 weeks, give or take.

Buying a new house is REALLY exciting. Name troubles are less exciting, but I think you've picked an ideal solution.

Congrats!! Where at? Send more details!! I'm so excited for you!

Susan on 5:34 PM said...

Yay! Congratulations!

Perhaps the house will name itself? Some houses do that, you know. :)

Congrats on the new house! Maybe you just need something that say "Family" or "Love Grows Here". I know kind of cheesy but then maybe not. It is what it is and you make the best of it. I'm so glad you are...

Can't wait to see pics of the new place.
