NAWBO Baby Shower Fun!

Before entering this world or Mommy madness, I was an active participant in the Orange County chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. More important than the monthly educational meetings, are the amazing women that I've met and who have supported me on this journey to motherhood.

Two years ago I participated in the mentor program and was matched with an AMAZING mentor, Beth Adkission, who was so generous in hosting a Baby shower for me this past weekend. We had decided to wait until after Zaleeya was home to do the shower so that everyone could meet her!

With food provided by another wonderful NAWBO friend/mentor Susan Johnson, the shower was so much fun as I got to bond with my favorite business ladies in Orange County. Complete with "Zaleeya Bingo", we drank wine, ate amazing food, and oohhed and ahhed over a creative array of gifts.

Zaleeya has gotten really good at handing social events and Daddy was around to help so Mom can socialize. She waddled around chasing the cats, eating strawberries and attempting to grab at everyone's wine glass and eat the cat food- normal toddler behavior. She was tired after a couple of hours and a bit over-stimulated but it was worth it!

Special thank yous to BETH and SUSAN for an amazing afternoon!
