Hispanicize 2013- ESO!!! Swag & Song

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!  Bueno, as you can tell by the title, BB once again was very happy with "The Potencia that is Hispanicize"
This year there was so much in store for attendees that the event was 5 days instead of 3!






 Along with the published program, there was an app for up to the minute changes and additions.  And boy were there additions- VIP's and impromptu get togethers abounded!  But more on that later.  Primero, first, following in last year's steps (because if it ain't broke don't fix it and Hispz12 was so good for Babushka) I bring you-


THE SWAG

Not bad huh??



Gracias to all the exhibitors-
 starting with and alphabetically:




Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! But of course I linked ALL the exhibitors to their sites, that's the least Babushka can do; they helped make Hispz13 an unforgettable event. Besides, BB never takes less than 2.5 hours to write a post, because showing gratitude is always worth the time.  And for those who haven't attended a Hispanicize conference, believe me when I say it is sooooo Worth Your Time! 


Now on that first day BB took public transit so I lamentablemente missed the first session, but I was on time to enjoy the networking and yumminess of sights y sabores in the beautiful terrace of the Eden Roc, where we took over for 5 nonstop days. Si, THE Eden Roc, historic home of the Rat Pack y for a few dreamy hours, La Babushka.





And speaking of dreams...




Attendees were given the opportunity to preview Filly Brown before the general public AND have a question and answer with the cast and writers.  The dream here was being with actors I have long admired and an up and coming actress that I know will be a major star.

Lou Diamond Phillips, Gina Rodriguez, James Olmos, Yousseff Delara, Michael D. Olmos



Ok My Beautifuls, you've seen the SWAG, but where's the SONG you ask?





First we got to attend a screening with the stars and then we got to screaming w/the stars.




Hispanicize founder Manny Ruiz w/Lou Diamond Phillips
who says he now has one less "Bucket List" item.



 I'm very happy for Manny- who by the way is a lovely person, happy that he lived out a dream.  
As for BB, all of life is but a dream and I am very thankful that Hispanicize and you are part of my dreaming.




Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.  





P.S.  Of course pics will be posted on Feibu and Youtube will show other videos from that night.

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!!!
