Dress Code - What's Your Opinion?

Ok, I'm gonna get on my teeny-tiny soapbox for juuuuust a second and then I'll get off ;) This is something that all teachers can relate to. Obviously all places of employment have a dress code for many reasons. Although the restrictions can sometimes seem ridiculous, rules are rules, so just abide by them! 
**Sidenote...our district doesn't approve of Rainbow or Reef flipflops because they aren't considered "professional". I happen to disagree because 1) they are super comfortable and practical for all-day wear and 2) they are made of leather and aren't cheap looking. With that being said, would I would like to wear my Reefs to school? ABSOLUTELY! But is it really worth getting reprimanded by my boss over a pair of shoes? Nope. 
I digress...
I stumbled across this video from the Today Show and I couldn't help but get a little annoyed. Watch it and let me know what you think. Simply put: Just follow your employer's dress code!
Ok, off my soapbox :) Enjoy your week!

Teacher Week - Make Ahead Meals

Today I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' to write about one of my LEAST favorite things to do in the entire world...and that, my friends, is cooking. My husband thinks I'm a chef, but I'm no Emeril. I literally despise cooking! {Baking, on the other hand, is a completely different story}
When searching for recipes I usually look for something that is healthy will make good leftovers. Heck, who wouldn't want to make two meals in one?! This brings me to one of my favorite recipes from Skinny Taste
Please make my life easier and let me know what your favorite recipes are! I'd love to try them out. And don't forget to link up with Blog Hoppin' to get other great ideas.

First Week - CHECK!

Wow, has it really been over a YEAR since I've blogged? I guess I can blame it on having a baby and moving into a larger apartment ;) Regardless, I'm so excited to get back into the blogging world! I spent all summer changing diapers and nursing reading fellow teacher blogs and have become so inspired to jump back in. Here goes nothin'! I'll be posting pictures of my classroom later this week, so stay tuned. 

Monday is over...enjoy the rest of your week!
