Memorial Day weekend is here!!! Yeah! I love long weekends with my family! I had such an amazing trip to NYC this week! I loved being with Andy Cohen on WWHL! My first time in the clubhouse was a blast! Dr. Oz is a great guy, and I was happy to see him again. I'm especially proud of my new WWHL Medical Degree. I knew I could be a doctor! 

I also saw lots of family and a few friends while I was in town.

There is never enough time but I can't stay away too long from my brood. Plus, it was open house night at school -- the kids would be devastated if we missed that!

So this episode was special to me. Changing my name legally was representative of so many things. No one wants to feel they have lost their identity. It was a struggle between my past, present, and future. I feel I made the right decision for me and my family. Truthfully though, there is no right or wrong decision when it comes to changing one's name after marriage. The prevailing factors should be that the decision is mutually agreed upon by both partners in the relationship and that everyone feels happy and confident.
