Babushka, being Babushka, definitely wants to share the maravillas that are in this production, but not in a typical post format. For this, BB must write a letter to the creators, sponsors of Disney On Ice FROZEN.

To everyone involved in the production of the Disney On Ice , Gracias. 1000x Gracias.  

On March 24, my granddaughter, La Princesa, y BB went to see FROZEN at the BB&T Center in South Florida. This was an early cumpleaños present for her; she’s turning 7 on Sunday. From the moment she heard she was going to see her favorite princesses she was excited and Babushka knew the idea was perfecto.

BB sabia that the pre-show activities were going to be wonderful. Having attended a prior FELD Entertainment media event, they know just what children like. Comida, activities,and giant grab bags con excelente goodies inside were well received. Es mas, my usually hyper, talkative Princesa was grinning ear to ear and silent from felicidad when she met Elsa & Anna!

Now, what I didn’t know was how she would react during the show. La Princesa has autism, and can find some performances overwhelming, or gets so excited during events that she experiences sensory overload and either covers her ears and starts rocking, or totally tunes out completely.  As you can see, she did neither during this show.

A photo posted by Bohemian Babushka (@bbabushka) on

Starting out with the childhood friends of Mickey & Minnie was a wonderful intro.  The lighting, the volume, all were just right and the colors were lively but not glaring, again, perfecto.  And then, the moment she had been waiting for- the FROZEN princesses.

She was mesmerized and enchanted. 

And here Babushka was apprehensive about too many bright colors... 
you know what she said after Olaf's Solo Summer number?

"That was AMAZING!"

Truly, it was, and all the special effects were surprisingly, "Real". Kudos to that team who actually had us believing the rocks/trolls were rolling on the ice and that the Ice Monster was growing with each swoosh of Elsa's arms. This part transfixed La Princesa, especially since she had joined the "Let It Go" league of audience singers totally believing in the powers of Elsa.

Of course, the souvenirs we were able to get with the tweeting contest she won helped immensely and will be used and cherished for years to come.

The whole experience of Disney On Ice will be cherished for years to come. 
Forget this unbelievable noche?  
 It's Forever Frozen in our happy memories.  

From a very grateful abuela,

Still gliding from our FROZEN Disney On Ice  event, Babushka would like to share with you some activity/coloring sheets.  Gracias to fellow Bloggin' Mama, Erica of Mama's Mission for these.

A #Giveaway thanks to Dr. J , a Strong, Sensitive Guy who needs @Renuzit #SensitiveScents

BB received the following as a member of the Purex Social Insiders Program in exchange for a review.  All opinions son de Babushka, and mi nieto Dr. J.

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

My bello nietecito Dr. J is the picture of health and happiness, pero he does suffer from fofo face. A very sensitive olfato, he's alway runny so his mom @CristylsCorazon didn't use air freshners for fear they would make the situation worse.  No se about you, but BB loves going into a home that smells good. Si, ok, sometimes too much of a good thing marea, pero it's something right?  Bueno, Renuzit has come up con algo that's really something, a line of air freshners that Dr. J would appreciate and feel good with!

As part of the Purex Social Insiders, bloggers sign up to receive products to test and review.  Honestamente, Babushka didn't sign up for many because BB was happy with the scents currently used, pero not try something for her Grands?   JU SO FONII!!!

Mira lo que me mandaron!!


Que caja mas bonita right?  


Because Babushka has the GrandPuppy and new Gato, the first thing we tried was the super odor neutralizer en White Pear & Lavender.. BUENISIMO!!! Impresionante how it gently overcomes the not too gentle odors of pets.  Ahora, gently doesn't mean it doesn't have a scent, porque si they do, and very pleasing ones at that.  A soft, pero steady scent para those who are sensitive. The same can be said of all the Sensitive Scents line. BB and Sweetie found the cone in Water Blossom and Cucumber perfecto for the bathroom, calming yet somehow refreshing. Y el Pure Ocean Breeze Oil was delightful and delicate like a calming beach breeze and we enjoyed it in the bedroom, for our own virtual getaway. Now y'all know que Babushka does extremes, so at first being so used to the "in your face" scent of some freshners, we thought we had mis installed or not used enough, pero once we were still and let the products do their trabajo, the scents just enveloped us and it was lovely.

Y que dice Dr. J, who will most likely grow up to be the strong, sensitive type??


Which of these would you like to try Beautifuls?

The buena gente de Renuzit gave BB tres coupons for a free Sensitive Scent product.  


If you'd like to try to win one, these are the entries:

1. "Follow" @BBabushka on Tweety.
2. Tweet the following: #Giveaway with nieto Dr. J, via @BBabushka for @Renuzit #SensitiveScents
3. Comment here on this post which of the products you would purchase with the coupon.
4. Comment on Feibu where you would use the product and let me know on this post what name you commented under. 


Buena Suerte Beautifuls!!

Diabetes Prevention


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Today a serious subject that hits casa, Diabetes.  A disease that can hit anyone, even those you would never suspect to have it.  If you would look at Sweetie and me you would probably think my Babushka rolls would put BB closer to the diabetes diagnosis, pero the one who is borderline diabetic is my slim Sweetie. Ahora, eso si, does that mean just because BB didn't have it at last checkup The test can be skipped now?  JU SO FONII!!!

 Let’s face it – we have all been that persona, the one who says “it’s okay, I am fine. I will make that doctors appointment another day.” There are millions of reasons why we don’t take time to make healthy lifestyle choices. Kids, jobs, cat videos on the Internet – we’re all busy.

Pero, if it were the health of your hijos, your parent, or another loved one, would you still procrastinate? Whatever the reason, there’s no excuse for not taking care of yourself just like you would make the time to take care of someone else!

March 22nd is Diabetes Alert Day. No one is excused from prediabetes. 86 million American adults (more than 1 in 3) have prediabetes and are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a serious health condition that can lead to heart attack and stroke. Surprisingly, nearly 90% of those with prediabetes don’t even know that they have it.

But it’s not all bad news. Prediabetes often can be reversed through weight loss, diet changes and increased physical activity. Diagnosis is key: research shows that once people are aware of their condition, they are much more likely to make the necessary lifestyle changes. Education and awareness could mean the difference in so many lives.


Making changes may seem tough. But remember, even a small amount of weight loss (5-7% of your body weight) can reverse prediabetes before it develops into type 2 diabetes.
  • Get at least 2.5 hours (150 minutes) of light aerobic activity every week. This could be as simple as going for a brisk 30-minute walk 5 days per week. Even 10 minutes at a time adds up. Small steps can lead to big changes.
  • Find simple ways to be more active throughout the day, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or parking farther away from the entrance of a store front when you hit the shops. Because, hey, whatever will get you moving is a step in the right direction.
  • At the start of each week, create a schedule of when you’re going to exercise — and make it a priority to stick to it!
We need to communicate a sense of urgency – it’s time to take action and what better day to spread the message than on Diabetes Alert Day! If you know someone who could be at risk, encourage them to visit for a short online test that will help them learn their risk for prediabetes.

So get tested Beautifuls, Babushka wants to bailar with y'all for a good,largo time!!

#GodsOfEgypt - Movie, Mythology & Make at Home Fun

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!! 

Today Babushka is sharing un poquito on the latest Gerard Butler pelicula, Gods of Egypt. Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! SI, you do need to know a little bit more about the film than that.  At least the synopsis?

In this spectacular action-adventure, the survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek [Brenton Thwaites] undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful god Horus [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau] in an unlikely alliance against Set [Gerard Butler], the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to prevail in the spectacular final confrontation.

Fierce and fantastical verdad?  Babushka's always been fascinated by Mythology, all kinds and of every culture. What a treat to be able to introduce a new generation to these tales.  The buena gente de Allied Hispanic were nice enough to send BB some crafts to share with The  Grands and with you Beautifuls. First, being Babushka, abuela al fin, the food.

Que fun verdad? The Grands will enjoy these immensely, and Babushka?  

She'll be enjoying this immensely.
