Friday Favorites: Last One for April

Happy Friday, y'all! Lots of favorites over here today, so let's get right to it: 

I realized this week that we only have one week left of BSF and three weeks left of school for the year! How crazy is that?! I like to get the boys' preschool teachers an end-of-year gift as as massive "thank you for teaching/putting up with/loving/praying for my babies," so I got to work on those while they were at preschool yesterday. 

I found this printable on Pinterest and the rest of the stuff at my local Target and Ace Hardware. I've linked what I was able to find online. :) 

Bag (couldn't find online; similar here) || towel (I got two of these and two of these) || sunscreen || water bottle (couldn't find online; similar here) || lip balm || chocolate || napkins || koozie || wine glass || paper straws (couldn't find online; similar here) || candle 

And I also like to get their BSF teachers a little something, too, for teaching my boys all about Jesus each week -- and doing it totally on a volunteer basis. I found these potted plants at Trader Joe's and affixed this printable (found on Pinterest) to them with twine. I loved how they turned out! 

I asked y'all on Instagram Wednesday night if you had a favorite (somewhat cheap) sunless tanner or bronzing cream. And y'all delivered!!! I ended up going with the Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Self Tanner Milk and the Tan-Luxe "The Gradual" and will let you know my thoughts on those once I use them a few times. But, here are the others that were recommended. So thank you for your input! If anyone else has others they like, please comment and let me know! :)

one || two || three || four || five || six 

seven || eight || nine || ten || eleven 

Pictures of pictures, I know, but I got the boys' preschool spring picture proofs and I just...I can't even. How do they get them to smile like this?! I would have to bribe them with candy for days to get those cute grins. (Also, my baby in a cap and gown...I cannot.) 

Favorite Amazon purchase(s) of the week: 

+ These tortoise shell hoops ($9.99): 

+ This one-piece swimsuit ($29.99): 

Linking up with: Amanda, Andrea, Claire and Della

  7. Super gifts for the teachers. I made something similar on a smaller scale a few years ago. This year, made some farmhouse deco on my cricut for them.

  8. I would love any ideas on what I can get my kiddo's teachers. Problem is he doesn't have just one per ser. There are 8 total girls, including the owner, at his daycare. Any suggestions on something for 8 people?? haha I hate NOT to include one or two just because they don't directly teach him.
