Going Out With A Bang...

Well today I went back to school. No more Winter break. No more sleeping in till 11. No more wearing pajamas until 2. But that's okay because I finally get go into the schools and start teaching every once in a while. I'm so excited not to have to take any more classes about things that I really don't care about. Now I finally get to be in the classroom, which is what I've waited to do for so long. I'm sure that y'all will be getting plenty of updates about the things I will be doinf, but for now I'll update you on how my weekend went.
So, I decided to head to Georgia Friday to spend some time with my family. While I was visiting, I made some really cute pillows for my bed. Yes, I'm still crafting...
 Here's a burlap and cotton wreath that I made last week. I love the way the blue and white ribbon looks with it.
 So, while I was in Georgia I met my good friend, Kathleen, and some of her friends in Savannah to eat at Paula Deen's restaurant. Yes, I know I have been running my mouth about eating healthy, but in my defense... it's Paula! How many times will I get the chance to eat there?

 The restaurant.
 Her store next to the restaurant. I could've spent a ton of money in there, but all I bought was a peach candle that I've been wanting badly.
 They start you off with a garlic cheddar biscuit and a hoe cake. I almost cried. I haven't had a hoe cake since my Grandma passed away. It tasted almost just like hers. The girls had never had a hoe cake. Must be a Georgia thing.
 Of course I had to get a sweet tea. I sent the boyfriend a picture of it though 'cause if he would've been given this he would've taken that "green thing" out as quick as he could. Love it.
 I was told, "Get the buffet. That way you can have it all." So, that's what I did. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, cream corn, butter beans, and macaroni and cheese... it don't get much better than that. However, I will say that I tried the crab cake burger and it was incredible.
Then, our awesome waiter came and gave us a choice from these three desserts: banana pudding, oreo chocolate ooey gooey butter cake, and peach cobbler. They were all delicious.
I had such a great time, and I'm so glad Kathleen invited me. Needless to say, I'm hitting the gym extra hard today and getting back on track with my healthy eating habits. I hope y'all have a marvelous Monday and I haven't influenced you too much with my guilty pleasure at Paula's. Keep up the good work!

  1. Sweet tea and a hoe cake--that's pretty much everything you need to have a wonderful day! My hubby and I love visiting Savannah...and eating at Paula Deen's (I could literally make myself sick off of that macaroni!!). I'm glad you had a good trip, and good luck with your student teaching (I've taught at the college and elementary school levels--teaching is hard, but it is also a lot of fun!).
