Babushka is a Brand Ambassador for Dryel and happy to share the ways and whys of the product. Como siempre, opinions are BB's.

Dryel In Home Dry Cleaning BBabushka

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
For those of you who don’t know, BB has a new “adventure accomplice”.  Babushka’s eldest, Cristyl’s Corazon has moved Up North in The South with her mama and sharing quarters until her house is done.  You know the saying, “De Tal palo tal espina.” or in English, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the fruit.” ? Bueno beautifuls, in our case that’s very,very verdad.  We are last minute wanderers, always scouting events on Feibu and attending. Ahora, though we are mentally y physically ready, does that mean our choice of wardrobe is?  JU SO FONII!! Por supuesto that’s a no, but thankfully Dryel is ready to spruce up last minute outfits and help us look our best.

An Instagram post showing how facil it is to use Dryel. Couldn't get any easier. The dress came out smelling fresh and to doubly make sure no wrinkles, we used the wrinkle releaser spray included in the Dryel Starter Kit. Here's the pic from BB's original post sobre Dryel.

and because BB never tires of saying how easy Dryel is to use:

On Social Media you can find Dryel on:

And there you have it Beautifuls.
No need to spend extra time or dinero on drycleaning and ensemble sprucing.
Con Dryel you'll be ready for any adventure!

Adelante Aventureras!!

Jump Start their Education with a @FloridaPrepaid 529 !! #sponsored

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Bloggin’ Mamas & the Florida Prepaid College Board. All opinions expressed are Babushka's.

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

It's summertime and the kids are in casa, enjoying their childhood, pero we all know that goes by so quickly.  Before you've had the chance to dry out their swimsuits and make photo albums, they're off to college. Quee? BB exaggerating? JU SO FONII!!! Bueno, maybe not that rapido, but fast enough that you should be thinking about their education and the future it'll bring them.

Summer is the perfect time to put extra money away for college, especially with a little help from Florida Prepaid. Through June 30, if you open a tax-advantaged Florida 529 Savings Plan, they'll seed your account with $25. Plus, set up automatic monthly contributions, and they'll add another $25 as part of their 529 Summer Jump-Start Promotion.*

There is no age limit, you don't have to be a Florida resident to purchase and the plan can be used nationwide; so it's a flexible option for parents who don't want to commit to a Florida Prepaid College Savings Plan yet OR it can be used in conjunction with a prepaid plan to cover other expenses outside of the tuition and fees. For a full savings vs prepaid comparison, visit myfloridaprepaid.com/faqs/savings-vs-prepaid-plans/

529 Florida Prepaid

What is a 529 Savings Plan?

529 savings plans are named after section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code 26 U.S.C. § 529 and are designed to encourage saving for future higher education expenses of a designated beneficiary. Many states offer 529 savings plan options, including Florida Prepaid.

Money from a 529 plan can be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment required for study at any accredited college, university or vocational school in the United States and at some foreign universities. The money can also be used for room and board, as long as the fund beneficiary is at least a half-time student. Off-campus housing costs are covered up to the allowance for room and board that the college includes in its cost of attendance for federal financial-aid purposes. There is even an expansion that allows it to be used for K-12 educational expenses as well.

May 29 was National 529 day and Florida Prepaid is trying to increase awareness about college savings and the Florida 529 Savings Plan.

Counting Books You Can Count On. #Owls & #Oscar Oh My!

Babushka was sent the following books for review. All opinions are hers and The Grands.

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Babushka has been scarce around these partes; home life has been super requete busy lately, what with medical meanderings, birthdays and end of school. Pero like todo, there is a positivo.  BB is spending more time with familia, especialmente The Grands.  If you're like Babushka and have little ones about then you'll love reading to them, especialmente if you can do twofers with the libros.  With these books you read while teaching them how to contar. Learning during together time. ESO!!

The first book we're going to highlight se llama 10,9,8…Owls Up Late! 

(Silver Dolphin; ISBN: 9781684121847; $9.99; 26 pgs; Ages 3-5) ten little owls are playing in a tree, hopping and hooting happily. But Mama Owl calls from down in the nest, “It’s bedtime now; it’s time to rest.” Peek through the pages and spot the mischievous owls in this fun counting book, perfect for bedtime! Featuring fun rhyming text, funny illustrations and peek-through die-cut pages.

Este is SURE to become a classic.  The escrito, BB almost calls it lyrics, because one naturally goes into a singsong while reading.  The story, sweet and easy to sympathize is true to life's moments and a madres amor. Illustrations are well done, being detailed and colorful, but not so much so that it jars sleep away.  A definitivo para mimir in Baushka's house. You'll enjoy this bedtime boardbook with your little ones, for sure to be a favorito.

Next is already a classic-bueno, the characters are.  Sesame Street: 5 Little Rubber Duckies

 (Studio Fun; ISBN: 9780794441197; $11.99; 12 pgs) is educational fun for little ones 2 and up, as they learn their numbers with Elmo and friends!

Join Ernie and his friends on Sesame Street as they try to find five little rubber duckies in this fun, hands-on board book! With touch and trace elements perfect for little hands and plastic duckies to push and count along, this book is the perfect story time activity for early learners. Also available in Spanish (5 Patitos de Hule)!

Of course BB ordered the one in Spanish. Ahora eso si, Dr. J read it in Spanish? JU SO FONII!!! Pero seguimos tratando; you can never give up on teaching them another language. At least they'll hear the way it's supposed to sound when they decide they want to speak it.

So here's to a summer of family time learning and reading.  BB's looking forward to it.  

Hope these libritos help make yours fun and feliz.

A Candle For My Mother: A Daughter's Journey Toward Gratitude - $20 Amazon GC & Book #Giveaway

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Just the premise of the libro got BB. An adventurous mother who shared that love with her children, sooo like BB's own madre, Mama. One of her last adventures was tipping over in a sailboat with her grandchild, laughing and making it special. No se if "Gracias" was said enough to her, but with each historia BB tells about Mama, the Amor as well as the tales are shared.  Hope this book helps you share your love.

Sponsored By: Pamela Newton

Hosted By: Love, Mrs. Mommy

*~* 5 Winner Giveaway! *~* 

Grand Prize Winner will receive a:
 $20 Gift Card To Amazon & a Copy of the Book "A Candle for My Mother"

4 Runners-up will receive a:
 copy of the book "A Candle for My Mother"

Author: Pamela Newton

About the Book:
A Candle for My Mother is an inspirational story of a young woman from the Midwest, Lorraine Newton, who longed to travel the world despite being the mother of four young children. “I’m going to see places, come hell or high water!” Lorraine remarked, and she made it happen.

Lorraine’s stories in the book are told in her own words from tape recordings she made before she died, and letters saved by a friend, detailing Lorraine’s family’s amazing experiences in Iraq and travels in Europe. Into the bubbling political cauldron of the Middle East in the 1950s ventured an American family. Iraq was not necessarily what Lorraine had in mind, but the country fit exotic to a tee. It conjured up “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,” markets filled with silks and gold, and travel in Europe on vacations. Lorraine was about to embark on a grand adventure.

Pamela Newton never felt closer to her mom than when she was traveling, sometimes logging over 100,000 miles a year: “Mom’s adventurous spirit was with me on every trip, in every country, encouraging me to make the most of each moment.” The things that Pamela experienced on her business trips often triggered a remembrance of her mother and her childhood. Those memories became the reflections and gratitude's that Pamela expresses at the end of each chapter when visiting churches across the globe to light candles for her mother, a tradition she began in Westminster Abbey.

For readers who may be reminded of exciting memories from their childhood, A Candle for My Mother has been designed with pages interspersed throughout for writing personal reflections. Here a son or daughter can add their favorite pictures, recount “Best Day Ever” times, write a thank you to their mom, or include poems, musings, or thoughts. It is designed to be a gift to oneself or one’s mom. Read it, write in it and then give it to your mother…with gratitude.

Finalmente, Finally Felicia. #FeliciaPhoenixFit

Babushka has received no further compensation for mention, though she will take this opportunity to thank TheCreditRx, Proctor Honda and Consumer Reports for their part in this historia.

Finalmente, Finally Felicia. #FelicaPhoenixFit

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

FRIDAY April 13, 2018 was a lucky day for Babushka. Contrary to superstition, it was a very good day for BB, would even say it was Blessed. It was the dia we gladly welcomed a new member to our familia.

credit rx Jacquelyn Calloway

Felicia Phoenix. Quee?? You don't name your carros? JU SO FONII!!! Bella Trusted Steads who share your lives daily? Who literally have your vida in their poder? Babushka has named them all and loved the part they've shared with us.  Esta Preciosa is no teeny bopper. She is a 2016 Honda Fit who only had 20 thousand miles,well taken care of, still intact and potente. If she was humana, BB would say the vibes of a 44 yr old business woman was Felicia. Certain of her place in la vida, with still a lot of vision and vim, lista for whatever is to come, and ready to do it with a style all her own.

Now why did Babushka pick the name Felicia Phoenix? Beautifuls, it's been almost seis years since Stan The Man retired. We had become a one car family with shared driving privileges. All was going well, only Sweetie truly needed to use the car daily for work, so it was ok, we made due.  Also ok was no expense of a second car. No monetary expense, pero the strain of being a one car family in other ways became clear, especially when my eldest and her children moved closer.  BB wanted to make up for lost time and opportunities, there were errands to run, and places to take them to. But as we bloggers and enterpreneaurs know, ours is not a steady income, so lenders weren't apt to lend and Babushka needed to raise her credit score.

Felizmente BB met Jacquelyn Calloway, aka The Credit RX. She was able to raise Babushka's credit score to the point that purchasing a carro was posible. Will forever be grateful for her help and guidance. Also, she's still offering help to you Beautifuls; you can read more about her services and receive a free gift here

Babushka has always felt that the cosas that happen to us are truly life lessons. Both the good and bad have their reasons. The questionable credit made BB realize what was worth spending on, and Consumer Reports helped Babushka learn about the options available. If you remember, as an Ambassador, BB was gifted a trip to their testing facilities, race track, and some excelente car editions of their magazine. #CRSponsored

Armed with knowledge and credit, Babushka started the process of buying. BB had fallen in love with the Honda Fit a couple of years ago when it was in purple. Unfortunately that color option is no longer around, but the reputation of the Fit was still good and our prior dealings with Proctor Honda lead us back to them. The precio was right, their treatment was right, so the estrellas were all aligned, and Felicia found a new casa!

If you read the caption of the above, you'll see the full explanation of her name. Yes, we could have continued being a one carro familia, and yes, if need be we can return. Pero Beautifuls, BB feels so happy, grateful, resurrected and ready to fly. You ready to take flight with Babushka? 

Aver donde volamos.

Babushka Besos a Todos. Cuidensen.
