Celebrate Closer

June 19, 2014

DSC_0185This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Crest and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, all statements and opinions are my own.

The World Cup is extremely special to us. Playing fútbol as a child in México is one of  Hubby’s fondest childhood memories. I grew up watching my father practically burst with energy and passion while he watched his favorite sport on our TV. Our oldest will start travel soccer this fall and we are sure his little brothers will follow close. I’m proud of the term “soccer mom,” because I truly enjoy everything about the sport. I love watching the pros as much as I love watching the soccer tots. In our home, we have a meaningful connection to three countries! Therefore, we are proud to say we root for three World Cup teams. We celebrate close with a lot of people!

All of our children’s abuelitos were born and raised in México. We all travel to México, speak Spanish to our boys and feel profoundly proud to cheer passionately for El Tri. Hubby and I were born and raised in Chicago, lived in New York City and now call New Jersey home. Rooting for Team USA is serious business here. Our boys have mastered the “I Believe That We Will Win” chant and it fills us with joy. Finally, we also root for Japan. Our oldest little guy was born in Tokyo and are grateful for the care and hospitality from the wonderful Japanese people when we became first time parents. Diego takes pride of being a Mexican American born in Japan and he can’t wait to visit again.

Whichever team you end up rooting for, remember that Crest Complete allows you to get closer to people, providing you the confidence that comes from knowing you are covered and protected against bad breath! Have you seen this video? I love it! We do get really close, don’t we? Crest Complete Multi-Benefit Whitening + Scope Striped Toothpastes are the only toothpastes that combine the whitening power of Crest toothpaste with the freshening power of Scope mouthwash. They fight cavities, prevent tartar, and provide cleaning action to help remove surface stains.  I have these redeemable coupons for you HERE and please don’t forget to see and  share the video! It melts my heart.

One team or three…the World Cup unites us all.  The further your team goes, the closer you get! Suerte!

    We have World Cup fever here too 🙂 My husband even took a week off to watch the last few games. We’re rooting for the US of course (especially after that underdog win!), Mexico since that is my husband’s heritage, and England because he follows the English clubs (Liverpool to be specific). Plus it’s just fun to check and see which teams won, the stories behind them and the fact that this only happens every 4 years!
