Well folks! We’re almost legal!
On our way out of Dallas last Friday, we stopped by the Dallas County Courthouse to turn in our documents and get our marriage certificate.

We would have only paid $11 ($60 of the fee would have been waived) if we had taken one of the approved courses, but we figured we would just wing it.
