Teacher Complaints

Today I complained on a teacher. I have never had to complain on a teacher before...I will always have a great deal of respect for the good ones out there, as it is not an easy job!! We have been so lucky with our kids to have had amazing teachers.

I ate lunch with my son after his dentist appointment and witnessed another class' teacher being rude and hateful towards her students, all of whom are 4-5 years old.
You would think she would have been on her best behavior with a visitor in the lunchroom....makes me wonder what her behavior is like when nobody else is around!
I couldn't not say anything and keep a clear conscience, so I e-mailed the vice principal and principal when I returned home.
I am so, so thankful that my son does not have that teacher!!!
A great teacher will have kids wanting to come to school everyday, while a bad one will make them miserable and hating school, quite possibly for the rest of their school career.

If you are a teacher, I salute you for keeping your cool and being patient with your students.  I think if you ever get to the point where you are snapping at kids, yelling at them, calling them "babies" and making them cry at lunch (saw it today!)...then maybe it's time for a career change...or a very long vacation.

What do y'all think?

Black Bean Burgers and a Zara Top

Yesterday Natalie over at Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers mentioned that she had an awesome black bean burger at a local restaurant and asked if anyone knew of any good recipes which reminded me...I've had a recipe on my counter for 2 months that I clipped from a magazine (I think Fitness??) for Melissa d'Arabian's Black Bean Nacho Burgers.

Another blogger has posted the recipe here 

So I decided to give it a go... It ended up looking like this
 I added salsa and guacamole...was pretty good... Everyone ate their burger and there wasn't any leftovers which is usually a good sign that people in my house liked it. cute is this Zara top with faux leather sleeves??
Only $25.90
Of course it is currently out of stock, but you can sign up to be notified when it is back!

Have a great day!

Pasta Shells, Annasophia's Dress

I am not much of a cook.  If I see a recipe with more than 6 ingredients, I will usually skip it.
I have been making a lot of stuffed pasta shells lately though. Very simple. For a basic meal, all you need is this:

 Marinara Sauce, Jumbo Pasta Shells, Ricotta Cheese and some Mozzarella

All you do is boil some water and cook the shells (I used about 18)
Dump the ricotta out into a bowl and mix in a little mozzarella (you could do Parmesan or something else though)
I then pour a little bit of the marinara on the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish
Fill the shells with cheese mixture, pour the remaining marinara on top and add some mozzarella

It ends up looking like this
 The fam loves it and I look like I might not suck so bad at cooking...
I also have added spinach, onions and mushrooms in the past (after watching an episode of Master Chef and thinking maybe, just maybe I will cook like that someday) which was also very good.

Anyways...I saw this pic of Annasophia Robb (she's going to be playing the young Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries) at the DVF show
I think this dress would look so much better on a brunette with a tan...
HAHA much better, right?? 

Have a good day y'all!

Weekend Update

Good Morning!

We had a pretty uneventful weekend.
We did the dentist on Saturday
 Then a quick stop at Target
 Can someone please tell me why these are $60???  They weren't that much back in '96 were they??? Crazy!

Next we hit up my favorite BBQ place in Savannah, Sandfly BBQ 
 I could seriously live off that potato salad. So good!

My son had a fever (the joys of being back in school) on Sunday so we spent the day at home (after making a quick donut run)
 Mmm...Dunkin' Donuts!!!

I also got a "like" on a comment I made on Facebook from Allen Haff of Auction Hunters!!!
Very exciting.  :) Anyone else watch that show? He is so funny (Ton too)!

Don't forget to link up for the update with Sami's Shenanigans, five30three, and Join the Gossip

Have a great day!!

Things I Need, Kelly O, Mom of the Year

Things I need...

Stella & Dot Renegade Cluster Bracelet
Dress $54 at Trunk 13 boutique in Savannah
Old Navy Leopard-Print Top
I bought this top in black and I really like the fit of it even though I have to bend my arms all weird to get out of it.... Definitely need this since my Husband hates animal prints. :)

How amazing does Kelly Osbourne look at Zac Posen Spring 2013??
I must confess that I watch Fashion Police every Friday night.  
Love Kelly and her purple hair!
Oooh and one more thing...did anyone see this pic of Peaches Geldof after her stroller/pram tipped over (supposedly from a pothole)???
I'm sorry, but this b**** needs to hang up the phone and tend to her baby. And nooo, she didn't hang up right after this picture was taken because I've seen the next shots where she is holding the baby on one side and is still on the phone.
I also read that she said he was strapped in, but it looks to me like she has a blanket over the straps (other sites have more pictures of before/after)... What do you think??

Good Morning!
How was your weekend?
We spent Saturday at the beach on Tybee Island
 Btw, I got those swimsuits for the kids on Friday at Old Navy. My daughter's was $3 and my son's was $5.  Such a great deal!

On Sunday we went to church and then grabbed lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Mellow Mushroom.
We were lucky to be seated right in front of an artist painting a new mural on the wall
 I also spotted a girl wearing this Old Navy dress
I had seen this in the store the other day and was kinda like eh, but it looked so cute on her...might have to go snag it!

Fashion Night Out Savannah

Good evening!!
The fam and I went down to Broughton Street in Savannah tonight to check out Fashion Night Out.
There was a pretty good crowd walking around, checking out the shops and the runway shows.
Some pics I snapped:

 One of the unicorns at Marc Jacobs

Anyone else go to FNO?  Where?


Cat Prints: So Right Meow

This fall is all about animals.
Tory Burch has got people running around looking for foxes, Burberry has got the owls...and who started the cat trend? Idk (maybe Victoria Beckham or Miu Miu), but they're all over the place. Here are some cat prints I found, if you're looking to jump on the bandwagon!
Not clothes, but how cute is that?! Haha

Atlanta Trip

Good morning!

We spent the weekend in Atlanta.
We hiked two mountains (Stone and Kennesaw) in two days.
We looked around a few stores, but the parking was awful at all the major shopping areas (I was so sad) so we just said screw it and went back to the hotel.

Here are a few pics from the weekend:
 This magazine was in the hotel room.  I thought it said "whore".  Haha
 The kids and I on Stone Mountain.  These hikes were unplanned so I got to hike in my Sperrys...I'm happy to to say I  did not get any blisters! Quite surprising!
 My husband and son walking back down the mountain
 Some ugly Louboutins I had to try on. They were made of wetsuit material. Ugh.
 The sky over Macon, GA on the way home.

Hope y'all had a safe Labor Day weekend!
