    It took a few weeks. Sometimes I still catch myself typing my old last name :

    I can think of myself as Firstname Newlastname, but more than six months later it’s odd to be called Mrs. Newlastname.

    It took a little while, a few months maybe. I love being a Mrs though!

    Hmm, months I guess. Sometimes it still doesn’t seem real and we have been married for over 1 year now. So crazy how time flies.

    It took me a month or two to get used to saying husband and getting referred to my new last name..  Now I am comfortable with both 🙂  And it kinda makes me excited now that we are getting Christmas cards with our married names..  (Even though my new last name isn’t officially changed over to everything yet that is taking a while).  I definitely kept writing my old last name during the two months.

    It took hubby actually quite a few months to get used to wife or wifey.  I had to keep correcting him for the first few months.. But now I noticed he is getting more fluent and common with saying it so thats great 😉
