I Heart 2009 - Rose Bowl and NYE Recap

Happy 2009 everyone!

We started the New Year off right by watching our USC Trojans destroy the Penn State Nittany Lions at the Rose Bowl!!! Go Trojans! In Pete We Trust.

Side note: Seriously, enough of this controversy, USC and Texas are just as good at Florida and Oklahoma, let's have a PLAYOFF already!

The game was a blast! The only bad part is getting to and from the Rose Bowl (for those who don't know, the Rose Bowl is UCLA's home stadium and USC plays at the Colosseum). I feel bad for the Bruins who do that commute 6 times a year.

Here are some pics from the game.

The Post-Game Celebration!

Also New Years Eve was fantastic. A really fun and pretty perfect night. We walked to the Party on Pine Street in Downtown Long Beach. We had drinks at Smooths and an amazing pre-fixe dinner at L'Opera. There was also a band at L'Opera, so we did some after-dinner dancing and surprisingly ran into an old sorority sister of mine and split a bottle of champagne with her and her boyfriend. We then went outside to the town square of the big NYE Countdown. It was a great way to start our first full year as Mr & Mrs.

Some pictures:

Hope you all had a great New Years and have a divine 2009! It's been really fun getting to know all of you out in the Blog world, and I can't wait to connect with you all more in 2009!

I envy you in your cute shoes going out on the town. Whenever me and my husband go out I have to wear flat shoes because we are the same hight. I don't mind it so much if we are just "out" but when we get all dressed up it looks funny if I am 2 inches taller

I found your blog a few weeks ago, because I'm also a newlywed in SoCal and then saw you commented on my cousins blog @ withthisnest! small world :) i love reading about your life in SoCal because my hubby and I just moved here!

Hi, thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm a fellow so Cal girl and newlywed, so I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog.

And FIGHT ON! I'm an SC fan married to a Texas fan, so football life gets interesting here sometimes. What we do agree on is that a playoff system has to happen.
