#Avengers & Amigos Assemble at the @AAarena Jan.17-21! #hosted

Babushka's S.Florida Bunch were hosted at the #MarvelUniverseLive event last week. This post is a recount of their impression and opinions. For her part, BB was glad they got to add another happy momento to their memorias.





SPIDER-MAN, IRON MAN, CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR, BLACK PANTHER, HULK, BLACK WIDOW AND THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY…

Unite in a race against time to defeat Loki in an epic quest to defend the universe from evil.

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
Being fans of the Avengers, Babushka's Bunch had to be on hand to cheer them on during battle.  They remembered the last time they saw them and knew this battle was going to be bigger. Actually Little Buddha hadn't been born the last time Marvel made it to Miami, so his reaction when he saw his heroes?


Truth be told, they were all very happy to see the Avengers. It's an experience enjoyed by ALL ages.

Once the meet up was done, it was time to for the show to begin.
 Time to cheer their heroes onto victory!



"Marvel fans, assemble for this live, action-packed, legendary battle to defend the universe from evil. Spider- Man, the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy join forces with Doctor Strange, master of the mystic arts, in a race against time to recover the Wand of Watoomb before it falls into Loki’s hands. This ancient artifact holds immeasurable mystical power and would allow Loki to achieve his eternal quest to crown himself ruler of Asgard and Earth. This all new show unites some of Marvel’s greatest Super Heroes including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Panther, Hulk and Black Widow against some of the most threatening villains. Their journey sparks new feuds with old foes, pitting student against mentor, sister against sister and brother against brother. Witness cutting-edge special effects, aerial stunts and video projection in this incredible adventure. Fans of all ages will be immersed in the Marvel Universe and experience it all with their family...LIVE! "

🎜Silver & Gold🎝 December Darlins' - Forever Friends

🎜Make New Friends, but Keep the Old. One is Silver and the Other Gold🎝

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
BB has been Blessed with many Beautifuls in her vida- YOU being one of them. BB is grateful for all of you.  There are two Bellas in particular who give all year round, but shine brighter than usual in December.  Babushka would like to share their light in gratitude. The song starting the post is old, but very verdad and describes these two in BB's life. One from childhood, the other from not too long ago. 🎜Silver & Gold🎝  .

**TG Merry**



TG's Papa was a bigwig with the Home Builder's Assoc.and was transferred from Missouri to Miami during our highschool years. Talk about culture shock!! Pero TG acclimated very well and quickly; she learned to love the comida and the people. Bb's Papa calls her "The Cuban from Missouri" to this day.  He was impressed by her manners, genuiness, brains. A wiz in math, my engineer father liked having conversations with her. Dear Memories de many happy horas spent in their casa, truly down to earth, loving people who BB missed immensely when they moved away.  Since then we have seen each other maybe 4x (she was MOH at Babushka's 1st wedding) but the amor is still there.


All year long TG does for others, her familia, her church, her community, but she shines even brighter in December. Most people take their Bday months suave, pero her Cumples is on December 25 (imaginate!) and her inner star enlightens stronger and for so many.  TG is now a mom and every year she sends out fotos with an original Family Christmas Poem sharing the events of the Merry Familia for that year. LOVE getting those. One year she didn't send to  BB and it was quickly reclamado!


 This year Mama G went to heaven, she would have loved the way her passing was shared. She was a good, giving mujer and TG is very much her hija. And TG is very much a part of Babushka's Golden Memories.

**Maria Ortiz**Cultura Latina Magazine**

MariaOrtiz_CulturaLatinaMagazine


Maria messaged BB several years ago via Feibu. Don't know how she found Babushka, but so glad she did! If you want to know anything and everything that has to do with "La Hispanidad" in Tallahassee, Maria is the one to contact.  As owner/editor of Cultura Latina Magazine she has been sharing her love of the hispanic culture and people for years. Pero that be the only way she helps and highlights us? JU SO FONII!! A diligent dynamo, she is sought after to organize and host  many events. She lives solidarity and inclusion- of ALL people. Naturalmente she is much loved here because of this, but mostly it's because she gives de corazon, from her corazon. An example of this was a Christmas Low Tea Party, part of Maria Ortiz's Wonderworld. Oh si, she's into cosplay tambien.

"We are celebrating a very Merry Christmas Low Tea Party by order of the Queen of Cultura Latina Heart in honor of all the years of friendship and sisterhood.  You are hereby summoned to attend to celebrate withthe ueen who has planned a fabulous afternoon with tea and treats!"

And an intro from Maria herself-


Enjoy the detalles and the delightful dignitaries- Tally artists, writers and lovers of culture.
Cynthia Rose, Barbara Joe Williams, the lovely madre/hija team behind Studio Heart Events amongst them. 


Hope you noticed the Reyes Magos amongst the decoraciones. Naturally they had to be represented, especially by Maria who celebrates them with a public party. She's even got the Mayor in on it! Details on that despues on Feibu. 

Babushka knows y'all would love these Bellas as much as she does. 
 This is just BB's way of showing a little Amor and saying Gracias for their years of friendship.

Hoping you have Silver & Gold in your lives, and that they know how precious they are pa' ti.

Feliz 2019 Beautifuls!
Babushka Besos a todos.

Spectacular #ChristmasBricktacular Making Forever Family Memories w/ @LegolandFlorida & @Redcoachusa #hosted

The trip via RedCoach and the entrances to Legoland Florida were hosted. 
The smiles and great tiempo was BB's and her Bunch.



HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

If y'all have been bailando with Babushka you know FAMILIA IS TODO.  Family bonding is sumamente importante and BB tries to facilitate it as much as she can. It can definitely be challenging, especially when half of  The Grands live in Miami and the other half live Up North in The South near Babushka.  Now the older Grands have no problem with the bonding and having great memories of cousin time because they all lived in Miami when they were younger and grew up together, but the two little ones, Dr. J and Laughing Buddha are growing up far away from each other. OJO- growing up far away does not have to equal growing apart, at least not if this Groovy Grandma has any choice in the matter. 

Enter the S Sisters with an invite from Legoland Florida for la familia to join them in their first ever, CHRISTMAS BRICKTACULAR!!

Legoland_Florida_Christmas_Bricktacular_2018

Babushka pass up that invite?  JU SO FONII!!
  Enseguida, right away the email was made to the Remarkable RedCoach luxury bus and the trip itinerary was all done. Time for Cousin Conocimiento with some Babushka Bonding thrown in too. 



If you read the above caption, you'll see that this is the first solo ride Dr.J has taken on the Redcoach with BB. He was encantado, didn't even use the iPad the whole trip. He truly enjoyed the actual viaje and experience. Pretty cool for a 4 year old. We had conversations and observations durante those 4 hours. Again, Pretty Cool for a 4 year old.


Arriving at the Orlando Station, we waited for DIL and Laughing Buddha. Quee?? You thought BB was going to go sola with The Little Grands? Beautifuls, BB stands for Bohemian Babushka, not BoBa. She picked us up and we stayed at her friend's casa, the founder of the Kai Jeremiah Foundation. Babushka will definitely be sharing more about that organization in the near futuro. Pero for now, we got the little ones to bed for the next days aventura.


Legoland_Florida_Winterhaven
Oh the squeals of joy when they saw this!!




Got his very own ticket. NOW he's feeling cool and grown up.

A Comenzar the Fun!!




BB got some abuela time in and  fun was had by all, pero the most importante, 
the primos partnered in many memorias. Mission Accomplished.

Now time to go back on RedCoach.


Dr. J looking forward to another ride on "The Big Red Bus".


Until he realized we were going back to casa.

Honestamente, BB can't blame him. We had an incredible time at Legoland.  
With a promise of coming back again, he settled in and enjoyed his trip back to Babushka's.

  

Beautifuls, this is the last finde for the Christmas Bricktacular. BUENISIMO.
 Make a point to visit, and make Forever Family Memorias. 


Have a Very Meri Crisma!!

How to Keep Your Sanity at Family Gatherings. #CubanChristmas #CrismaCubano #affiliate #referral #JUSOFONII

This post contains links leading to referrals, affiliations, and gracias. As always, sincere and all BB.



modern_family_dinner_cellphone

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Was that your family last Thanksgiving? Looking bored and only at their cell phones?
 Let Babushka give you a few suggestions/pointers. 

1. PUT AWAY THE TELEFONOS!!

Snoozet_nocellphonezone

Upon entering the casa, everyone deposits their phones. You can use a basket, a bag, lo que sea, but out of manos to enjoy the moments. Gracias to We All Grow, in a webinar they gave,  BB was the winner of this Snoozet. BUENISIMO!! They sent Babushka a Thank You, pero with all the great ideas, productos, and social good they do, it is BB who says Gracias. Try them, you will too.

2. Have Games. 
Mastermind_Strategy_Game 

Mastermind- a game of strategy and guess.
A family favorite from years past.

Hydro_Strike_Family_Game

Hydro Strike- Score or get sprayed!
Fast fun for the familia of today.


Ahora eso si, if you want juegos where a group can get in the fun, you GOTTA have these if you're gonna have a 
Cuban Crisma:


Cuban_Dominoes_Double_9


Cubilete_Cubano_Dice_Poker

Babushka's Personal Favorite- Cubilete , poker with dice ,strategy & luck.
It wouldn't be a family gathering without it. 
Even got some amigos aqui, Up Here in The South asking to play.

3. Movies
Grinch_Ultimate_Edition

How the Grinch Stole Christmas is the classic that makes the season en Casa BB.
The message, his muecas, Marvelous Memorias this brings.

Is that all you need?  JU SO FONII!! 
Por supuesto que no, but Babushka knows that YOU KNOW  food and music is a must have too. 

Christmas_Music_Salsoul_Orchestra

Blast from the Past, Always a favorito.

 In the food department BB suggests you ask everyone to bring "their specialty". You can never go wrong in asking people to bring algo de comer. It makes them feel more like a part de la fiesta and it gives them a chance to show off their infamous plato. Eso si, be ready for everyone to take leftovers home. "Pa que no se bote."

Foil_Take_Out_Containers
Disposable Take Out Pans

Take out decente. Por Fa Beautifuls, no paper plates covered in foil. 
Everyone and their carros will be saying Gracias. 

And alli you have it. Stress Less, Keep Your Sanity.
Enjoy your familia and your fiestas!!

Adventures Await with Babushka & @Lyft !! #Affiliate #Referral

This post contains affiliate and referral codes/info. Pero opinions are BB's and she's lovin' Lyft!!


Babushka_Lyft_Driving


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

A new adventure for your favorita aventurera.  If you've been following BB, you know 2018 has been a challenging year. Even Babushka's other side, La Gallina Vieja had to say algo about it.   Bueno, finances corto, Crisma coming, and honestly an itch to get out of the casa everyday, BB decided Felicia should help around here and work towards her maintenance, sooo, pa'lante with LyftOf course it helps that Sweetie is a master of Drive for Hire. Didn't know that? Been doing it for years. He even wrote a libro about it.

Driving_Uber_Lyft
On Amazon

For some reason BB hadn't thought of driving like Sweetie. Went through the usual applying for jobs at local retail shops, but was never called back. You'd think they'd need extra help now for the holiday season verdad? Apparently the S Sisters had a better plan and BB's so glad they did.

Applied online and within hours was approved! It was meant to be porque Sweetie said it usually takes a day or two. Got the official docs in a couple of days.

And BB was on the road!!

Babushka_Lyft_BBabushka


The hours are mine, how many rides quiero hacer is up to me, and if BB doesn't feel like going she doesn't. Perfecto! Of course being in such a bello town like Tallahassee helps.

Babushka is LOVING LYFT!!!!

So, if y'all don't see as much of BB as before, no se preocupen. She's on the open road awaiting adventures. Porque if you think those stop at 50- JU SO FONII!!!
