Christmas Far From Home, but close to the Heart. @Rebtel #InternationalCalls

Babushka received no monetary compensation for this post, however the gana to post and the opinions of this post are 110% BB.



HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!!!

Those of you who've been reading BB's posts for awhile know politics or being political isn't what Babushka's all about. Quee??  Ok si, JU SO FONII, ever proud to say CubanAmerican, but not usually spouting my views. Pero... Babushka IS about family, and most of them remember the time when Christmas was no longer allowed to be celebrated openly on the island.  Since 1969. Thankfully most of BB's family were already in the US, but no doubt it was very rough for those still there. Especially not being able to speak to those they missed.

The 30 years of missed celebrations and conversations was not lost on Rebtel,    From their press release:

"Rebtel commemorates those families who did not celebrate that first Christmas, and celebrates the Cuban families that today can enjoy this important date without losing the traditions and culture of the island. As part of this celebration, Rebtel called five people who lived in Cuba during 1969 and personally experienced the silence of that first Christmas to narrate their personal Christmas story. Their stories are available at www.rebtel.com/lostchristmasstory "


What are your stories My Beautifuls? Which stories would you like to be sharing with your loved ones this holiday season?  To help facilitate that sharing, Rebtel is giving 5 of BB's readers $20 of credit to use for international long distance. Buenisimo right??  A little more about them and their services:

Rebtel offers the lowest prices in the market for international calls to any phone and provides free voice calls and text messages between Rebtel app users.

#Miami how about #FloatBall @ZooMiami this winter break? #Giveaway



Gracias to Bloggin' Mamas and @CelebConcepts for the invite. Babushka was given a free ride on FloatBall and a certificate giveaway for one of her Beautifuls. Como always,the story & opinions are 100% BB's.


HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!

So, BB's hoping y'all have finished doing your holiday shopping and are on the final details of your celebrations, but did you think of whatcha gonna do afterwards?  Quee?? Ok si, JU SO FONII, Babushka usually says to live in the moment, pero after having The Trio, BB knows too much time spent at home can put anyone on Santa's naughty list.  For you Miami mamas, let's see if I can't help you out a bit.



Babushka was invited by @CelebConcepts & Bloggin' Mamas to attend the inaugural US spinnings of the Floatball.  Yes, tal vez it should be "sailings" but they're not your typical seaworthy ship and boy can they spin!! Don't let their cute appearance fool ya, these guys are fully packed. They've got hydraulic cieligs, pahoramic widows, LED backlighting for a great night ride, and they run on electric engines. Here's a little sample of what you can enjoy.

As BB was saying, the floatballs are operated by Aquatic Sports LLC inside ZooMiami 
and BB, Heather Lopez, Babushkas Bebe and Dr.J were among the first to try them out.

Did I say Dr. J?  Oh Si I did! 
As his mother was proud to mention, he was the youngest sailor that day.



Dr. J waiting for Babushka's Bebe to carry him, was fascinated by her actions. Instinctively he seemed to know they were for him and he watched her until she figured it out, and then he went right back to sleep.  Gracias Baby K'Tan for such a great present- both mom & baby loved it!

And speaking about loving it...
A Giveaway for 4 rides on the Floatball!!

Now Beautifuls, this is located within ZooMiami but you must buy your entrances to the zoo.
Thankfully they're not too expensive and you can apply them to a years membership.

The ride is good until January 4, 2015 so it's perfecto for the winter break.





Buena Suerte My Beautifuls, and may your memories of this time be Merry.
