LATISM 2012- Houston, TX

LATISM12
Another year of LATISM has come and gone! Each year I meet amazing people in business, education and the blog world. One thing that stays consistent is the amount of love we have for each other when we see one another time and time again! We are a Familia.

I consider LATISM my extended family, I have got to meet many of them and the support can move mountains!

This year I was sponsored by Johnson & Johnson! I was so excited to represent such an amazing brand talk about giving back and being there since before you become a mom! There theme this year was Global Motherhood. More on that later  I have something exciting to share!

I also had the privilege to sit(or stand… for a full room) with my amigas Lisa, Uchi and Monique for a BLOGGING 101 session. Did you catch my post on the tips I would be discussing? I’m Happy to say we rocked the house!

I was on a mission at this years LATISM:
This year I come to LATISM focused with the intention to inspire and be inspired!”
I believe I was inspired by many bloggers but also the amazing trio that spoke for Adelante. Sandra Cisneros, Nely Galan, and Nell Merlino. We laughed , cried, held each others hands, and left inspired to become more than a mom and wife!

I wish I had photos of all the sponsors I visited like at&t, Verizon, Toyota( By the way I drove a Prius I was amazed and wanted to bring it home), and Southwest Airlines,

McDonald’s was very present celebrating our beloved EggMcMuffin’s 40th birthday!!! They had us creating Birthday cards in their booth!

Hasbro was also there I was happy to see them support us for the first time. They brought over the cutest BILINGUAL Baby alive dolls!
The Adelante Movement was presented by CocaCola. It was nice to get a drink at their pop up station!

You all know we love us some Mario and Nintendo. It was extra exciting this year to be in their suite. They brought us the WiiU. This was my first time playing and I think I went back 3 times to play! I was hooked!

Johnson and Johnson had such an inspiring suite. We had Passports to be stamped in the suite at each station they set up for us to learn about their programs. I am a big supporter of Text for BABY. I have mentioned it before. Had this resource been available to me after I had my miscarriage and was soon pregnant again I would have been at ease! It’s the Simple things!
