What have the Butler's been up to?

What have we been up to you ask?  Well I am super excited to tell you all that I am now officially a Butler.  Last Friday I went to the social security office and walked in and out in 5 minutes.  How did I do that you ask?  Well my dad's coworker's wife works there and got me the hook-up.  It is the only way to do it.  There were at least 50 plus people waiting in there.

Then Monday I went to DMV in Carson.  It is the only way to go to DMV without slitting your wrists.  Ok I am being a bit dramatic here, but it is the best option.  Then I made a million phones calls, faxed in a million copies of my marriage license, and emailed them off.  I have most of my banks, credit cards, insurance, rapid reward accounts, etc. taken care of.  So I am now officially a BUTLER!

We also took a trip to Los Angeles for the Nevada Wolf Pack game and to support a friend of ours that is making it big (or at least we think he is).  Babe and I decided since we couldn't go on our honeymoon right away, that we would have a celebratory dinner in LA the night we got there.  After getting recommendation from Anthony, we went to Tar and Roses in Santa Monica.  Ummm yum.  So amazing.  We had the bruschetta with heirloom tomatoes, yummy cheese and balsamic vinegar.  With that appetizer/special, we had two different cheeses, nuts, mini grapes, spicy pickles and fruit cracker things (I know so technical).  Then we had our real appetizer which was tempura soft shell crab with a papaya and mango salad and this delicious sauce.  Next we opted for the whole fried snapper for two.  I went back and forth on what I wanted and looked at what everyone else was having before deciding.  Best decision ever.  Check this thing out.

Basically you take your fork or fingers and pop out a section of the fish (a chunk) and dip it in this amazing thai/garlic/spicy dipping sauce and chow down.  I was a champ and ate my entire side.  No I didn't have the eye (gross), but I even got down on the cheeks and head area.  So good. It came with soba noodles and we ordered some corn on the cob with goat cheese, spices, lime and cilantro.  Best mini moon dinner.  

From there we headed back to Pasadena for some Wolf Pack fun at a local bar called Barney's Beanery.  We were downstairs watching football, drinking beers, cocktails and shots.  There was some karaoke (not by my husband and I) and lots of fun and making fun of others.  

Saturday was game day and I have always wanted to go to the Rose Bowl.  Amazing.  Even though we lost got annihilated, it was still a great experience.  Too bad they don't sell alcohol inside the stadium for second half's when we can't even pull off a first down.  Ouch.  Here are some pictures of the hubby and I enjoying ourselves before the game.

 So happy to be here.
Yes I know I am Kaepernicking on the wrong side, but this one is so much cuter than the other photos.  Go Pack!

I did some awesome shopping as I haven't shopped for myself in many months.  I got new heels, new shirts, new socks, new flats, jewelry, sweat pants, a skirt and maybe a few other items, but there is still so much more fall stuff I want.  Hence why I am shopping for black boots today.  Hello Fall is almost here.

We saw amazing friends, drank some amazing wine and brews, and enjoyed life as a newlywed.  I wanted to go to my dearest friend's bachelorette party that weekend, but these plans were made so many months prior to her plans.  So sad I missed that.

Here is one last photo that we took the day before heading to LA.  We were supposed to go to the Rib Cook-off for dinner, but the smoke was really bad that day, so we went to Campo instead and watched preseason football.  I don't even regret it.
