California Baby Shower - 2/12/11

After an amazing shower in MD with girlfriends, I went home to Agoura Hills, where my mom's friends and my Aunt Candy threw me another shower at Mediterraneo, a restaurant in Westlake Village.  It was just as special as the Maryland shower, as nearly every woman in the room has known me, if not since birth, than from childhood.  Making the weekend extra special was the presence of Felicia, who flew out from New Jersey, and my two aunts, Karen and Ellen, who flew in from Texas.  I was blown away by everyone's generosity and feel lucky that our little boy is so loved already!  Here are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend.
