My BFF since I was 12 years old is having a baby!!! I'm so excited that you would think that she was having my child... She is due in December and I can't wait to meet her baby girl. Today, we had a baby shower in honor of the mommy and daddy to be.The baby shower took place at Habana, a Cuban fusion restaurant in Costa Mesa. We all sat out on the patio at a big table decorated with pink roses and balloons. For drinks, we all had red sangria and white sangria. I loved the white sangria with green apples in it. Even though we are well into fall, it was scorching hot today and the cool sangria hit the spot.Since the baby shower was at 1, we just had a bunch of appetizers. I loved the presentation of this shrimp ceviche with plantain chips. It was spicy~!We also had some homemade empanadas.And Cuban style crabcakes... But enough about the food!

I helped provide the party favors for the baby shower today. I made sugar cookies and tied them onto mini bottles of champagne with baby pink ribbon. My onesie cookies didn't turn out as professional looking as I hoped they would... but aren't they cute? I spent quite a few hours trying to make the perfect cookies, but they were a lot harder to make than I thought the would be! I was having trouble trying to get the right consistency for the sugar cookie dough and the icing. In the end, my hard work paid off because the mommy-to-be liked these favors! :)
One of the friends brought a beautiful cake from Wonderland Bakery to the shower! Although the cake was a little bit on the overwhelmingly sweet side, it was pretty tasty and I thought it was gorgeous. Yum.... I love cake. Anyways. I can't wait to become an auntie!!!
