#TBT Papa Nic & the Boo Bees Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 This post was originally written in 2013. Many cosas have happened since then, pero still a very valid message BB wants to share, especially since my eldest had breast cancer. Get those exams Beautifuls!!

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!

Throughout the month of October, Babushka attended many Tweety Fiestas stressing the importance of breast self-examination and mammograms and in memory of My Mom I would attend, but in all truthfulness it had been over two years since BB had gone to a doctor. Apparently the S Sisters thought it was time to change that. 

 My Little One's wisdom tooth had developed a painful cavity and we went to the health department for a dental exam. While waiting, BB saw this and immediately knew I had been set up. 

The program provides a free Pap test and mammogram to qualified ladies.
Those sisters- they know BB can't pass up a twofer!

Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! Of course it wasn't a twofer of the best kind, but it really wasn't all that bad either.  Babushka was attended very well by the ladies of the Wakulla Health Department, matter of fact it was the best exam of that kind I had ever had. Sherry Bramblett RNP and her assistant Celeste were very personable and professional. Sherry explained the procedure step by step, which although we both knew this wasn't BB's first Pap, it helped to relatively relax, and their sincere attention to any questions was most appreciated.

 Did you know that bb (that's BB as a child) in her Spanglish innocence would hear La Tata talk about Papanicolaou and think she was talking about Santi Clo. Truly. bb knew of  Papa Nic. Quee?? Y'all never heard of Father Christmas?  Bueno, we all know a Papanicolaou or as BB now calls it, The Pap Test has nada to do with Christmas, but you should look at it as a gift to yourself and your family.  A monthly self exam and your mammogram and Pap Test is the best defense- early detection could be a life saver.

Go on, be a good Bella

Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

"Morticia and Gomez are distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and overly consumed with "scream time". To reclaim their bond, they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation. Their adventure across the United States takes them out of their element and into run-ins with their cousin Itt and other kooky characters."

Mickey's Search Party , A Disney on Ice Delight! #DisneyOnIce

 A continuation of  Disney on Ice presenta Mickey's Search Party a South Florida's Got It!

Babushka was so happy to know Disney On Ice was back
 and gracias to them her Bunch were going to see a show they'd never forget.

Porsea y'all forgot- BB is an FEI Family Ambassador, who in exchange for attending Feld Entertainment productions shares performances, dates, discounts, and her heartfelt opinions on the shows.


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
Without a doubt, a Disney on Ice show is  spectacular, on so many levels.
 Babushka's Bunch was so thrilled with the invite, some of them came down all the way from Jacksonville to see the show in Miami! That's the well deserved reputation of these shows. Quality all around in every performance; the magic and joy is in the air before it even starts. Then again, not many programs have such well known and much loved characters...

Where is Tinkerbell???

And so the search and the show comienza. At what a search it is!! 

Through so many diferente mundos, pero todos knew them.  One of the happy factores of a 
Disney on Ice production is that aunque the plot is different, the songs are the same.
 What a wonderful thing to witness, an entire audience cantando their favorite Disney cancion.


 Entire intergenerational familias, singing with smiles and clapping along with la musica. Pero this the only reason it's loved? JU SO FONII!! The All Around Artistry is Astounding. From the sets, to the costumes, the props to the souvenir popcorn, all phenomenal, and the actual performances?


The choreography and precision of the skating is truly enchanted, as befits a Disney production.

Coco was Laughing Buddha's favorito.

The Happy Ending!

So al final, what do Babushka's Bunch say to Disney On Ice?

Family bonding and lifelong memorias for sure.

Don't fret if you didn't see it, here's where you can follow them-
