Abuela & Mom, Feeling Buddies Tag Team #FB4F @BlogginMamas Sponsored

Conscious Discipline has picked Babushka and hija Cristyl's Corazon as a team evaluator of their  HOME  EDITION:  Feeling  Buddies  for  Families  Toolkit. Parte of Bloggin' Mamas, we have been compensated for these posts, however all opinions and reactions/outcomes are nuestros.


Now you KNOW this had to be included.



HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Isn't that picture just perfecto? Not only does it incluye "dance", pero the relationship between adulto y niño. They say when the student is ready the teacher appears, and this toolkit couldn't have been sent to Babushka at a better time. If you've been following BB en los redes, you've seen much more of my Eldest daughter, Cristyl's, familia. They've joined BB y Sweetie Up North in The South and Babushka isn't a long distance abuela to them anymore!! Blessings abounding, pero tambien the responsability. Quee?? Does that mean BB won't spoil them anymore? JU SO FONII!! Por supuesto there'll still be spoiling, pero to help mi hija, Babushka will also have to ayudar en la disciplina and long term molding de la cria. Y si, learn how to interact with a grownup daughter, her husband, and the dynamics of that.


Felizmente the S Sisters saw fit to send Conscious Discipline into our vidas. In its 20th year, this program has been used by schools and trained individuals to help children learn lifelong self regulation rules. Now, they've introduced the same principles to help familias in their casas. HOME  EDITION:  Feeling  Buddies  for  Families  Toolkit is for all ages and stages. 

"  The  HOME  EDITION:  Feeling  Buddies  for  Families  Toolkit  is  a  newly  released  product  from  Conscious   Discipline,  a  leading  provider  in  social-­‐emotional  learning  and  classroom  management  resources.  This     Self-­‐Regulation  toolkit  is  exclusively  available  for  purchase  at  http://feelingbuddies.com/      The  Toolkit  is  inspired  by  the  best  selling  CLASSROOM  EDITION:  Feeling  Buddies  Self-­‐Regulation  Toolkit,   which  has  consistently  brought  about  transformational  results  in  schools,  even  with  hard-­‐to-­‐reach  and   special  needs  students.      The  kit  was  reimagined  for  home  use,  and  includes  content  and  resources  that  present  a  framework  for     self-­‐regulation  for  adults  and  children.  The  kit  also  includes  access  to  six  video  coaching  sessions  with  the   creator  and  Conscious  Discipline  founder,  Dr.  Becky  Bailey.  "


Feeling Buddies Toolkit


Cristyl and BB are waiting for her esposo and La Princesa to move up here next week to start implementing el programa. Esto es serio and requires real effort and dedicacion, porque es for nuestros hijos. A program that gives them ejemplos and ways to self regulate emociones is invaluable, priceless. and a lifelong memoria.



Algo ALL Abuelas want to be.

Learn the Basics. Feb. 28, 8 pm #ABLEUnited #webinar #Florida #specialneeds

Babushka is honored to be part of ABLE Mama'Bassadors program between ABLEUnited and Bloggin' Mamas. Opinions stated are all BB's.





HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Babushka is feeling so proud of her home state of Florida. Making sure our residents with special needs have opportunities like everyone else, we were one of the first to make a savings plan under the ABLE Act.  People with disabilities can now fund essential expenses with tax-advantaged savings under the program ABLE United This is a relatively new option for saving money without penalty of losing federal and other benefits.  Porque honestamente, doesn't everyone deserve the chance to dream and plan for a better futuro?

· Until recently, individuals receiving federal benefits were restricted in the amount of money they could save, effectively preventing them from planning for the future and leaving many with no other choice but to live in poverty.
· For individuals with disabilities, fear of losing benefits or costs of setting up special needs trust has often prevented or limited them from considering all of their options to build financial security. 

· The ABLE Act amends section 529 of the Internal Revenue Service Code allowing each state to create tax-advantaged savings accounts specifically for individuals with disabilities.

· These savings and investment accounts allow individuals to save money while maintaining federal benefits like Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.

· The ABLE Act now allows individuals with disabilities to save up to $14,000 without impacting government benefits



BB for one is glad she can help brighten our granddaughter's future a little bit by contributing to her ABLE account.  To know that La Princesa will be financially better tomorrow by what we can add hoy makes the worry a little less.  If you still have questions about ABLE United please join the webinar.

Having Faith. #TheShack March 3 in theaters

The Shack  Octavia Spencer

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Faith is defined in the Mirriam Webster dictionary as "something that is firmly believed, even in the absence of proof".  Just a couple of months back Babushka was wondering how expenses were going to be covered, when My Little One stated, "Don't worry, we always find a way."  Y saben que Beautifuls? That vote of confidence, that statement said so matter of factly brought BB close to tears.  Raising The Trio as a single mom wasn't easy, yet they remember a childhood of many joys.  Y ahora as adultos we have come together for some mighty moments, and she's right. We always find a way.   



"Based on the New York Times best-selling novel with over 22 million copies in print worldwide, The Shacktakes us on a father’s life-transforming journey that will show him the ultimate truth about love, loss and forgiveness.

MACKENZIE “MACK” ALLEN PHILLIPS (Sam Worthington) enjoys a blissful life with his wife and their three children, until the unthinkable happens and his youngest daughter MISSY is abducted from their vacation campsite. Evidence indicates Missy has been murdered, but her body is never recovered. The tragedy sends Mack spiraling into “the great sadness” that isolates him from family and friends, causing him to question his innermost fundamental beliefs. Teetering on the edge of self-destruction, he receives a mysterious letter, apparently from God, urging him back to the scene of the crime—an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness.

Despite his doubts and fears, Mack journeys to the wintry mountain woods to revisit the most agonizing moments of his life and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named PAPA (Octavia Spencer), at the shack. Through them, Mack will find important truths that will transform his understanding of Missy’s tragedy and change his life forever.

The film stars Sam Worthington (Avatar, Wrath of the Titans, Clash of the Titans), Academy Award®-winner Octavia Spencer (Best Supporting Actress, 2012 –The Help; The Divergent Series film franchise), Grammy Award® Winner Tim McGraw (The Blind Side), Radha Mitchell (Olympus Has Fallen), Alice Braga (Queen of the South, Elysium), Aviv Alush (The Gordin Cell) and Graham Greene (Longmire). The screenplay by John Fusco is based on the best-selling faith-based book, “The Shack,” by William Paul Young in collaboration with Wayne Jacobsen and Brad Cummings. Stuart Hazeldine (Exam) directs the film, which is produced by the Oscar-nominated Gil Netter (Life of Pi, The Blind Side, Marley & Me) and Brad Cummings."


The Shack will be in teatros on March 3, sharing the message of hope and having faith.  
Because we ALL always find a way.

4 Legs 4ever #LoveYourPetDay #RockDog 3/24 en Teatros

BB's is working con sus amigos of Allied Contigo in promoting RockDog. 
Compensation received and also joy del premise. Opinions son de Babushka.



Rock Dog Poster


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Love of dogs, dreams, animated drawings, and musica, Babushka is very feliz to introduce you to Rock Dog.  De la gente who brought you Surf's Up y Toy Story 2, is a story about realizing one's dream and having the courage to follow it. The official synopsis-

For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dog’s life has a simple riff: Guard a peaceful village of wool- making sheep from the thuggish wolf Linnux (Lewis Black) and his rabid pack. To avoid distractions, Mastiff leader Khampa (J.K. Simmons) forbids all music from the mountain. But when Khampa’s son Bodi (Luke Wilson) discovers a radio dropped by a passing airplane, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: Bodi wants to be a rock ‘n’ roll star. Yet that means defying his father’s wishes, heading to the city, and locating the legendary – and reclusive – musician Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard), who needs to write a new song and fast.
If Bodi can put a band together, help Angus with his song, and defeat the wolves’ plot to take Snow Mountain, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become what he’s always dreamed of being: More than a dog ... more than a Rock God... he’ll be a ROCK DOG!
Summit Premiere presents, a Huayi Brothers Media Corp. and Mandoo Pictures production, in association with Huayi Tencent Entertainment Company, Eracme Entertainment, and Dream Factory Group.


And speaking of dogs, did you know hoy es "Love Your Pet Day"? Here's a BB Twofer combining Rock Dog and our Grandpuppy. Bella isn't she? Quee?? Babushka not highlight her?
JU SO FONII!!! She's definitely enjoying her new bowl.


"Glorious" sung by Adam Friedman


Y aqui es something for you to enjoy Beautifuls.

So, go hug your pets and see Rock Dog in theaters Friday!

Time is Precious & So Is Education. Prepare Ahora porque #StartingIsBelieving w/ @FloridaPrepaid ad

Babushka is a Bloggin' Mamas Florida Prepaid Mamabassador and is compensated for this post, pero as stated before, the real compensation comes with knowing BB's provided The Trio & now The Grands with an ayudita in their future. Opinions stated are 100% Babushka's.


MyFloridaPrepaid.com

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

There's a great quote on the Florida Prepaid Main Site page-

Your little one will be ready for college before you’re ready to let them go.
 Start saving today.

They ain't just whistlin' La Guantanamera Beautifuls!


It was just ayer that Babushka was saving for The Trio's college education, and now she's getting ready to save for Grands #5!! El tiempo is a fast traveler and the best travel plan is saving for their college/university tiempo ahora. Go ahead and start. What's the peor that could happen?  Here are some misconceptions and fears que BB's gonna stop right now.  


You do not lose your monies nor your plans if you move out of Florida, AND Florida Prepaid isn’t restricted to Florida schools; the amount covered by your Prepaid Plan can be used at schools nationwide. Not only that, pero if you move out of Florida after purchasing a Prepaid Plan, your child would still be billed at in-state tuition rates when using their plan at a Florida college or state university.


And what if your child decides classrooms aren't para ellos? Este BB knows first hand. My son MAC decided to skip university and is now a Master Electrician. So don't worry If your child doesn’t go to college, you can change the beneficiary of the Prepaid Plan or get your money back. Ahora the dinero Babushka had on the plan for him,he put towards Rinquincaya's, his son's, education. Nothing lost, and now the next generation's future is gained.



It doesn't take a lot to help in your loved ones future. The earlier you start, the younger they are, the lower the monthly cost. Imagine the possibilities you give them, how your confidence in their potential is shown with the Florida Prepaid College Board plans.

Go ahead and sign up, porque you know you want to. You want to let them know how much potential they have and what an education will give them. Pa' luego es tarde because their time to attend college will arrive much faster than you expect. Open Enrollment ends on Feb.28, 2017 #StartingisBelieving - in all of you.


BB2U

Ok, Babushka knows there are some questions todavia. Here it is straight from ellos-

"Florida Prepaid College Plans allow you to prepay the future cost of college. When your child is ready for college, the plan pays the tuition, tuition differential fee and other specified fees covered under the plan.
Guaranteed – Every Prepaid Plan is guaranteed by the State of Florida, so you will never lose your investment.
Nationwide – Even if your child attends an out-of-state or private college, the plan will pay the same amount as it would pay at a public college or university in Florida.
Scholarships – If your child receives a scholarship, you can get a refund for the same amount as the plan would pay a public college or university in Florida.
10 Years – Your child has up to 10 years after his or her year of projected enrollment to use the plan."

So now that your hesitations and qualms se terminaron, BB not give you one more ayudita?
  JU SO FONII!!!

For San Valentine Or Anytime, @ViajaSanAgustin #floridashistoriccoast hosted

This trip was sponsored/hosted by the Bella Gente de Viaja San Agustin & @FlHistoricCoast ,
 pero all opinions and fun times were BB y Sweetie's. 


St. Augustine Florida  Viaja San Agustin Valentine's Day
Never too old to learn and love


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

If you've been following Babushka for a while you know she's gone to St. Augustine many times. Besides visitng when she was bb (first trip age 11), there were notable trips such as the American Latino Heritage Fund Roadtrip and all the performances with TWAM , and though they were all fun and good trips, they were business and the city called to the soul for a more personal visita.  La belleza natural, la historia, la cultura, de San Agustin makes it easy to explain its over 400 years of existence and why one never tires of visiting. There are so many different "tours" and interests you can experience in St. Augustine, that every time truly can be a totally nuevo experience. This visit was one tailored for BB & Sweetie, a couples call, with a little bit of everything. 

1st night-Primera Noche

Por supuesto the wonderful folks of St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches
Visitors and Convention Bureau had a wonderful 3 day itinerary planned for us, and also por supuesto BB was running Cubantime and we didn't arrive until nightfall. Oh, but we knew all was fine and well planned when we saw our casa for the next few days, the Jaybird's Inn

Jaybird's Inn St.Augustine Florida
2700 N Ponce de Leon Blvd Saint Augustine, Florida

Que Entrada!! 
Spacious with nods to the town's history, nos encanto.


Rapidito we checked in, dropped the equipaje and went to meet our hostess Barbara del visitor's bureau who was waiting for us at a local favorite restaurant, The Raintree.  Located in an 1829 Victorian Home, winner of numerous awards, and offering over 350 wine labels, BB & Sweetie couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy our first cena en San Agustin.

102 San Marco Ave Saint Augustine, Florida

Que Belleza y detalles verdad? And if you think that's algo Beautifuls, wait 'till you see the comida!!

The Raintree Restaurant St.Augustine Florida
Sweetie thoroughly enjoying the pampering and the plates. House salad and the day's special, Flounder stuffed with crabmeat, fresh  vegetables and angel hair with mushroom Alfredo sauce.



Y hablando about Detalles y Belleza, you KNOW Babushka HAD to try some of their award winning postres. Made fresh and to order tambien, the combinaciones delectable, delightful y deliciosos!

The Raintree Restaurant St.Augustine Florida
Banana Crepe filled w/vanilla ice cream, Dessert chef, Chef Matt Berg, Barbara Golden, BB, Sweetie, Mgr Zack Fraser.


Of course we all had to give the dinner a great big ESO!!
Despues de la llenura of estomago, sights and senses it was time to call it a noche.


In our suite we found a sampling of what was to come.



Wineries, Fountain of Youth, Pirate's Museum, y mucho mas.


Hope you come back to see the rest of BB & Sweetie's @ViajaSanAgustin .
