Winner,Winner Chicken Dinner!!!

Happy Friday!!!!!

First off I'm SO happy that so many of you LOVED my last giveaway because as I said handmade is best and for my kiddies most cherished! Congrats to my winner Vanessa! Hopefully your little one loves their bunny as much as my Isy does!

Nakia has been so amazing that she wants everyone to get a chance at a lovey for their little ones and is offering 15% off their orders through March 9th!! Just use the code :  ELLIEADVENTURES, 


HOW awesome is she!?!?! I KNOW!!!

So now that the weekend is upon us what do you have in store? I have a project to finish up with my Gabi which is making us both CRAZY... I keep thinking but she's in 2nd grade! Let's just say mama has been taking deep breathes Ha, Also tonight my Isaac was chosen as one of the children to read during the Stations of the Cross. I love that during this Lent the kids are wanting to devote more to their faith and growing and learning and it is so beautiful to see.

Oh we FINALLLLLY are going to watch  Big Hero 6! I just rented it and can't wait to tell the Littles!! We did want to see it in the movies but with our crazy everything going on we missed the window but thank goodness nowadays movies are available pretty fast to view at home.

Last but not least Sunday it will be my 13th wedding anniversary. No plans probably brunch after church maybe I don't know.. Low key for sure cause well love my Hubby but he's not big on planning Ha... OH but Once upon a Time comes back too!!! The Littles and I are SO excited about it,we were thinking it was never going to come back!!


Enough of my rambling for now but before I forget Monday I'll have another fun giveaway to share that your kiddies will love if they enjoy Peppa Pig!


That's all from me,what are you up to this weekend?

Huggable Love from NakiaK Handmade -Giveaway

Today I am SO,SO excited to share one of the most fun giveaway that's I've done. More because it's close to my heart.

For me handmade equals love and these beautiful lovely dolls are SO that. I've had the pleasure of getting to know the owner of Nakiak Handmade and she is the sweetest. As a SAHM who makes these with so much love while watching her children hits my heart as I do the same.

The love and attention to detail are amazing. That's why I've already purchased 3 of her beautiful creations for my girls. I love that they will have them to years to come and they are original and created with them in mind.


Here is Isy when she first received her bunny which I got for her last Easter :






Can you see how sweet the bunny is. I love the attention to detail. The stitched face is so sweet and the skirt (although I took it off because Isy would pull it off all the time Ha) I love that I have seen her grow into her bunny!

Nakia also makes personalized dolls at request. I of course had to get two dolls for my girls. Each one is personalized just for my girls. They LOVE them :




Here is Gabi's dollie close up :



She was personalized just for my Gabi and she is SO loved.  Nakia gave such attention to detail to ensure that both dolls fit my girls and they are PERFECT!

This is Isy with her dollie. She just loves it so much and that is priceless to me.


Here are the dolls together. Aren't the most sweetest!


I even sent a super special request to see if it would be possible. As most of you know I have an angel daughter who passed away to SIDS almost 9 years ago and to help my boys. I decided to have bears made with some of our Anjie's pj's and so the boys each have one. Once Gabi was born Gabi  I gave her my bear so she would also have her own personal Anjie bear. Those bears are very special to the kids.

So now that we have Isy I thought she needed her own Anjie bear as well. The person who originally had made the bears wasn't available anymore. So I said since I loved Nakia and how much love she puts into creating each of her dolls I wanted to see if she would take on the making of an Anjie bear and she did.

I must say that I got teary eyed to see the finished product. It is SO beautiful and now our Isy has her own Anjie bear like her siblings. She is very much loved.

This was the first of many naps since she has arrived :



 So NOW are you in love with these beautiful dolls? How about a giveaway?! Nakia has been SO generous to have agreed to do a giveaway to one of you to choice a doll for your little one AHHHHHH.. I am WAY too excited for you guys.

She already have been posted peeks on this year's bunny and I already told her my Isy needs one so I need to start buttering hubby up cause we have to order one.

One of you will be lucky enough to get one!! Just enter below and good luck!!

Word{less} Wednesday : Don't Believe The Hype


Sure cutest Wednesday pic right..... Well let me show you real life...
Real Life :




Don't ask how many times I've picked up those toys today already..and how many times they have been pulled out. So when you can't bet them well snap a picture right? Yup that's what I'm choosing..They are only little once and trying to be in my #OLW today -Exhale...

So I'll put her down for a nap clean up AGAIN and keep my fight up with a video that doesn't want to upload for some reason, the piles of little messes waiting on me to pick up even though it will only stay neat till the kids get home, wondering what will I make for dinner when shopping hasn't been done... Everything happens for a reason right? Or is it what I'm choosing to say today...

Maybe that Elisa gal knew what she was singing about huh and I just need to Let it Go

Because everything is better with Confetti




Don't you agree? This weather has us feeling all sorts of blah so a little play always makes everything better.

We need this week to go by fast so we can enjoy our Winter Recess. A week of no alarms and lounging and hopefully if the weather allows squeeze a little adventure.

What does your week look like?

Yeah So about This Post Real Life Happened

It was suppose to be something totally different really. It was actually a share on some scrapbook pages I had created then this happened:





-The Littles came home after a half day of school.
-Started to contemplate what was my lunch going to be after serving the kids yummy pizza. I ended up with a salad. Wasn't bad but it wasn't pizza.
-Texted Hubby to see what dinner should be. It's gonna be a Mac & Cheese w/ Roasted Chicken kind of day. I think I'll make some veggies too.
-Did my Yoga. This was big ya'll as I haven't done ANY kind of activities for myself in almost a month because of everyone including myself being sick.
-Watched Book of Life with the Littles finally. Had rented it  but we hadn't a chance to watch it for 2 weeks now. The kids and I loved it. Really sweet. Ahhh real love conquers all.
-Working on my Stampin Up group ideas. I'd love to see some more gals join the fun. We shall see what happens. I really love sharing Project Life and that's the only reason I became a demo once again.
- Picked up on the cleaning I had started yesterday. Why is it the more you clean the less it seems you did anything? Or is that only in my house?
-Looking at new recipes. I rejoined Weight Watchers These extra pounds need to go ASAP I know what I have to do and just need to get on it. Weight Watchers has always been something that has helped me. I lost almost 60 pounds (before Isy being born)  and it's time to lose those evil last 20.
-Working on a couple of blog campaigns.Rethinking what  I'm going to share. Hopefully what I do will help other mamas out there as well.
-Looking at the weather and seeing we are getting more snow. I am SO done. I have TOTAL cabin fever. I haven't stepped outside since Saturday when I ended up in the ER. So yeah. NO fun and I'm about to lose my mind. I can't go out w/the baby because well it's too cold and driving a stroller in all this blah yucky mess isn't happening. Hoping tomorrow I'll be able to get some outside time as Hubby is home.

So on that note I'll end my dose of real life for the day. Hopefully tomorrow I'll share those pages I created. Hope is the key word here.


What about you? What are you up to...
