Sunday Funday

First I want to start off by thanking Ayden from Little blog of horrors for giving me the Sunshine Award :) Thanks so much :)

Now is the time where I pass this award on to more people, but I want to pass it not to just a few people, but to ALL my readers :) You all bring sunshine into my life by seeing your sweet comments on my posts and the cute and unique blogs each of you has.


I also got my amazingly cute suitcase in from Melinda Milkshake. I won this when she was having her giveaway!!! I now have it displayed with all my yarn in it!! Thanks so much!!!! It's perfect!


I have to say, this weekend has been a very fun weekend for the Ellington family. Friday we went to Yenti's Villa, a little Japanese restaurant downtown. I have been wanting to try bubble tea forever it seems and finally found a place that served it (thanks Sonja). For some reason I thought it would have been a cafe place. When we walked in and saw how gorgeous it was, we decided to stay and eat too. We got to sit on one of those platform things where you have to take your shoes off and you sit on pillows on the floor. Which was only slightly embarrassing because I had a huge hole in my sock...

I loved my bubble tea, didn't care so much for the jelly stuff, so I gave those to the kids. Joseph got to cook his own food at the table, which was very funny to watch. All in all it was a nice spontaneous trip out with the family. We haven't been able to go out to eat much because Kaylee is going through the "I want everything" stage and screams if she doesn't get it, but the kids were perfect little angels while we enjoyed dinner. When we were done eating, we signed their comment/suggestion wall.

Joseph showed me the comment he wrote "Great food and whore atmosphere".

Me- "Uhhhhhh Joseph???"

Joseph- "oops that was supposed to be an L" *he fixes it*

Me- "Ohhh and whole atmosphere, yea you may want to fix that".

We laughed like kids for about 30 minutes after that. I was so bummed though when I realized I left my camera at home, so we are going back next week so we can take some pics and eat their yummy food. In honor of trying bubble tea for the first time and forgetting my camera, I decided to make a bubble tea plushie.

Meet Sir Bubbleton (yes its pink, and it's a sir)


I also made one of my friends this cutie bat :) she loves bats kinda like I love pandas :)
I hope she likes it :)


I also started on another felt plushie project, but it will take me awhile because everything is so detailed, maybe it will be on next week's Sunday Funday :) I redecorated my craft room and added a ton of cute stuff! I'm still waiting on a few things, so once those come in, pics will be posted! I've been working on putting all my Happy Mail packages together, someone's getting spoiled :) Hope everyone had a great weekend! Off to go grocery shopping and finish the mountain of laundry that needs to be done!

What did you do?


P.S. Don't forget to check out my GIVEAWAY!! I'll be picking a winner on Friday, so you still have time!

Oh my gosh I still laugh at Joseph's wall halarious....reminds me of the bible song Hayden used to sing all wrong...he had your dad & I laughing so hard we were both crying...
