Very Honorable Mentions

The Exhibit & Product Halls during Hispanicize 2012 were chock full of vendor booths and chock full of coffee. (sorry, couldn't resist)  Needless to say I enjoyed visiting the hall at least twice daily during the conference , but my favs have to be:

My first husband (yes, there've been more than 1- here's the link-catch up!) was Dominican.
Ok, si, was my first husband, is Dominican, and the father of my two eldest children.
They are proud of their heritage and I'm glad of it.

I've visited the island and enjoyed it's beauty, food, culture and people.  Like this beautiful young lady they humored esta Crazy Cubana and made her feel welcomed.  BB will take her children to their father's homeland one day for the yearly "Encuentro"; I know they'll love it.

BB actually chased these poor Minions as they were going into an elevator. 
I was promised they'd return for a pic, and they were good to their...silence.
This one's for you My Little One!

They also gave us a chance to play dress up- Orlando style


Little did we know they were planning on doing this:

Babushka's at 1:08 w/cafe in hand. But of course. 

 Babushka unfanned!

You saw it here first- BB without her face coverup schtick, but nunca without her

; )

Babushka Besos to all.  Cuidensen.

Groovy Spanglish speaking Grandma of 6 who loves life and all its adventures. Motivational while still keeping it real, Babushka shows how all things looked at with gratitude are good, and how to say to la vida- JU SO FONII!!!

      BB may wobble, but I don't fall down. ; )

      ♥ the visits from the Muchachitas- gracias.


  3. I love it! The booths were super fun I so needed to catch up on the husband lol I didn't know but glad you are still proud of your kids cultures i'm sure it means a lot to them :)

    1. The booths were fun weren't they? As far as being proud of my trio's culture, BB's a heavy believer that if you don't embrace where you come from, you'll never truly know who you are or why you are.

      And inspite of their ::shudder:: puberty, I love them and who they are. ; )

      Gracias for the comment y abrazos always.


  4. Honestly! You must have a clone. Maybe I'll just follow you around next year. *lol*

    Tell you what- I'll take La Tata's electric skooter and we'll zoom between swag; how's that for a plan??


    ♥ the attention and the comments- keep 'em coming! Thanks.


Always remember- If someone doesn't see YOUR brilliance, just look at them, smile, and say- JU SO FONI!!!
