Last week Miller's preschool had an art night and auction event. The kids had art work on display and then there was auction items for the parents to bid on to raise money for the school. It was possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen and Miller was so excited to show off his work.
His is the smaller green one, his favorite color :)
It was very informal and laid back so the kids could show off their art and then play with their friends.
Since having kids my skin has been awful. One day it's dry, one day it's oily, one day it's both. Then it breaks out, it's a never ending cycle. I also feel like pregnancy just amplified my freckles and sunspots so I decided I wanted to do something about it. I'm on my second week using Rodan + Fields Reverse.
I don't sell the products so don't worry I'm not going to sell them to you and I didn't get them for free either but I plan to do a full review at the end of my 8 weeks to see if I really got any changes. The before and after reviews are what sold me so I'm hoping it really works.
On Saturday night we went out with friends for dinner and drinks. Nothing crazy but sometimes it's nice to just get out without the kids and enjoy adult conversation.

May 1st is always the big May Day contest and festival in downtown Annapolis. My mom's office is right on Main St so she always participates every year. This year she did the basket herself and it turned out so well!
I love stopping by to see all the baskets the local companies and homeowners put together.
As many of you with kids know this week is teacher appreciation week! We decided as a class this year to do teacher appreciation gifts and since I'm the room mom it was my job to put them together. Since my sister was a teacher and I have many teacher friends I always try to focus on practical usable gifts for the teachers. Miller has three teachers this year and they are all incredible. He's a completely different boy than when he started in September and I know it's been their love and guidance that has gotten him there. I will be so sad to say good-bye to them at the end of this month so I wanted to make sure that we did something special to know they're appreciated.
Miller goes two days a week so we wanted to have presents or treats for each day. Today we sent in donuts, a fruit tray and a potted plant for each of them. I opted for a begonia that they could plant in their gardens since I know not everyone is a huge fan of house plants or doesn't end up maintaining them like they should.
I found this adorable free printable that I put in each plant here. Pinterest, Etsy and Google had tons of good free or cheaper printable options for Teacher Appreciation.
On Thursday there is a staff breakfast for the teachers before school so we are just sending in little gifts that day. We decided to do a $10 gift card from Starbucks with the reusable hot coffee mug. I just put a little tissue paper at the bottom of the mugs and put the gift cards in there.
Tomorrow we are headed to Rosemary Beach to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and I am so excited!! After this cold, wet, dreary weather we've been having I cannot wait for some sun and sand!
