More photos from the weekend in San Francisco

In the previous post, I wrote about the shower in San Francisco. Here are some other images of the weekend:
The shower was at my cousin, MB's house. She has an awesome backyard/garden where we all sat down to open presents. Doesn't it look picturesque?

My sister is going to be my matron of honor, although she prefers the term "best girl". It was really special to have her sitting there next to me as I opened my gifts. It reminded me of being at her bridal shower four years ago. :)

Several extended family members came to the shower, including my great Aunt Rita (my paternal grandfather's youngest sibling). She is beautiful inside and out. I also want to say a special "thank you" to my cousins Jamie, Sofia and Shellie (not pictured), who drove about two and a half hours to celebrate with me!

Having my blog buddies J and Cherry present was a special honor!

After the shower, my Auntie M had us over to her house for a hamburger and chili cookout! Here I am with my cousins at the cookout. When I hang out with my Dad's side of the family, I look like an Irish lass surrounded by Italian/Latinos, which I am! :)

Jilly and MB (lovely shower hostess #1).

My mom and Auntie M (lovely shower and cookout hostess).

That is so lovely. I agree you look like your mom. :) Unfortunately I didn't get a family shower because of family issues. I know my mom would have liked it.
