HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!

BB was told Queen Victoria had said that, and even though it couldn't be substantiated,the truth behind the statement was something I should have followed.  Oh si, somethings should never be left on the back burner. Literally.

Last week Babushka went to #Hispz15 , the fourth Hispanicize event BB atended. This year they did things a bit differently;bloggers had to sign up beforehand for some events/sessions and then wait to see if they had been selected.  This one event, the invite arrived 40 mins before it actually started. Needless to say Cubantime was in order, but not too much so as La Tata's home was only 20 mins away via public transit. Ya the stomach was starting its churning...

If any of you have had the chance to meet an important possible sponsor/client you know you don't want to miss one minute of the opportunity. Especially when they came just to hear what attendees had to say. And you know BB always has something to say. Bueno, this was over breakfast and of course cafe was served. Cafe, nerves, see it coming verdad?  

One of the sponsors team wanted to speak with Babushka about a comment she had made and asked to meet with her afterwards. Who was BB to say no?? In hindsight, maybe a "later" would have been better.  Speaking with the first rep was good, the second was charming, and said she definitely wanted me to speak with the last associate who was the head of Florida. Oh my- the motherlode.  Unfortunately, by the time that happened,it was- Oh My, The Motherload!!!

Babushka did try to disimular-pretend that she was walking away (backwards, still conversing and looking at the sponsor) because she was late for another session. Still not sure if being the only two left in the room was a good thing, as there was no one else to blame the silent killer on...

As you well know My Beautifuls, BB tries to see the positive in every situation.  The business cards of this sponsor have mysteriously disappeared from the stack of cards collected.  Will there be a frantic search for them?  JU SO FONII!!!  Babushka will now follow Queen Victoria's example and be poised, knowing they will appear when the time is right. When the sponsors eyes have stopped watering and can read my email.

Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

So there's the charity Cha Cha Cha, a lot of bailando for a cause they believe in. ALL these events are organized by the Little Havana Kiwanis to benefit the underpriviledged of the community.  Si, these are all fun, but they're fundraisers too

    Babushka's very honored and proud to be one of the Carnaval Miami VIP Bloggers. 

    Si, very honored to help this great organization and their cause and hope you join us in some of the activities.  If you can't come in person, please help us spread the wonderful events they have by tweeting #CarnavalMiami2015 and if you see #CarnavalMiaVIP you know it's one of the bloggers chosen for the varied categories, so a RT would be mucho appreciated. In another post Babushka will detail all the other wonderful reps of Carnaval Miami. For now, know that BB's tema is Cultura/Culture. Quee? JU SO FONII!!! No, they're not saying BB's cultured, just that she knows about the Culture of Calle Ocho, Little Havana.

    Por supuesto, a big part of that is food, so you KNOW Babushka's not missing this one!
