Work Attire and a Case of Missing Time

Ugh being back from San Francisco sucks! It was a crazy trip and I had a ton of fun. I promise I’ll give an overview of my packing and what activities I did shortly! But for now!

Making MelissaI confess that..

I am starting to try and make an editorial calendar. Something basic like on Monday we wear pink! Just kidding, I couldn’t resist. More like, on Mondays I will post something that is pinnable!

I haven’t seen one episode of the Bachelor yet! I’m slacking majorly. It’s all on my DVR though, so when my boyfriend is out for a doctor’s appointment tonight I promise to catch up!

I hate wearing slacks to work. I will happily wear dresses and skirts all winter into work.

I have also torn through at least five pairs of tights this winter 😥

I’m totally scared that February is going to fly by! There are tons of things that I’m doing in February and March that I am just not prepared for!

Bye lovelies!

My Favorite Baking Recipe

banana bread

This is one of the easiest and my favorite baking recipe. Banana Bread! I feel like I almost always have the ingredients for it, especially since I have a terrible knack of letting my bananas get over ripe. Typically, I freeze my bananas as soon as they get too ripe. That way I never waste bananas! This is also a super easy recipe, no mixer necessary, and super easy to clean up. You will only need a mixing bowl and a fork!

You’ll need:

  • 3 very ripe bananas.
  • 1/3 melted butter.
  • 1 cup of sugar.
  • 1 beaten egg.
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda.
  • 1 1/4 cups of flour.
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
  • Optional: Walnuts (I hate having crunchy things in my bread so I usually don’t do this, sorry for no measurement).
I know, over ripe bananas never look appealing.

I know, over ripe bananas never look appealing.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. If you plan on removing the bread from the pan to serve, I would suggest putting Pam on it. I usually end up keeping my bread in the pan and just cutting slices out of it.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  3. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar and beaten egg. Optionally, you can add in some vanilla extract here. I like it since it makes the banana bread a bit sweeter.
  4. Mix in the flour. Option: If you want to add the walnuts, add them here and fold them into the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour 350°F or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove and let cool.
  7. Eat!Banana Bread Finished Product

Thanks to my mom for first teaching me how to make Banana Bread!

God I Love Chick Flicks & Cash Giveaway!!

Recently I realized that I rarely ever watch chick flicks. Maybe it’s because I’m not a super girly girl or that I’ve had a boyfriend for a pretty long time and we tend to watch most movies together. And no, I’m not saying that boyfriends can’t watch chick flicks, it’s just that mine doesn’t. See below commercial. This is my boyfriend, except instead of accidentally showering with Summer’s Eve, it would be him walking in to see me watching a chick flick.

So I decided, screw this I need some goddamn chick flicks in my life. And I’ve cried in all of them.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. God the scene where Bailey….Don’t make me relive that moment again.

Bridget Jones’ Diary. Never. Gets. Old.

A Walk to Remember. Literally watched this on #NickMom late Tuesday night. I should probably be more embarrassed that I’m actually watching programming for mothers, but I’m not.

Love Actually. I felt that I needed to watch this due to the holiday season and the fact that pretty much every girl I work with is obsessed with this movie. I still don’t like it. Sorry not sorry.

The Sweetest Thing. I guess this is a bit more of a comedy than a true chick flick, but still!

I also added in a few girly TV shows. I caught up with Kourtney and Khloe’s lives. Had a sick day and watched a Sex and the City marathon.

So there you go, here’s my complete estrogen-filled post. Now, back to NickMom and ice cream (just kidding…only about the ice cream part)!


Last but not least here are the giveaway details!
