It’s Thursdayyyy. I like that. A lot.

This week has been a bit of a busy one so far, but a great one nonetheless. Here are some noteworthy moments I captured in the midst of the busy-ness.

I made Chocolate Toffee Bark for the first time for a little get-together on Tuesday. It had always been a favorite treat of mine, but I never made it myself. Who knew it was SO easy to make?! Just four ingredients.

Definitely a new go-to recipe.

The bark was definitely a hit, but not as much of a stunner as the incredible rooftop view as the sun set. New York City moment, right there…

That same day I also made a batch of Double Chocolate Chip Heath Bar Cookies as part of a gift for a certain someone. I used a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe but added milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and Heath Bar pieces. They turned out great!

And since I’m all about balance over here at GML, I also made it a point to hit the gym every morning (can you tell by my barely open eyes? haha).

I think this whole exercise thing is finally turning into a habit – as is some better eating choices – like this healthy and filling noteworthy breakfast from Fuel.

(Just because I’m eating better, it doesn’t mean I’ve forgone my beloved Seamless ;))

And this Zing Bar I grabbed from Whole Foods. It’s very LARABAR-esque but with more protein. Loved it.

Definitely noteworthy this week has been the weather. We had some rain here and there, but yesterday in particular was a b-e-a-u-t. It made it the perfect day to run a ton of (mostly wedding-related) errands. From Tribeca, to Union Square, to Times Square, and everywhere in between…

…and yes, I squeezed in just a bit of shopping for myself. My favorite sunglasses broke and just had to be replaced.

Some noteworthy snippets from my devotionals this week:

And last but not least, you know I’m a sucker for good quotes…

    Yummy yummy treats! I have been in a baking mood lately. I’m thinking of making something pumpkin-y because I’ve got fall on the brain 🙂

    I’ve been trying to make morning exercise as part of my routine too! What do you usually do at the gym and how long do you go for? How do you become motivated, especially in the morning??

    Those toffee barks look so delicious! I think I will make them today 🙂

      Hey Vivian!

      The only way I get myself to to the gym in the morning is if I make it the *very* first thing I do. I don’t even make my bed yet, haha. I also lay out my clothes the night before so they’re ready to go. I go for 30-45 minutes 🙂 I also have it easy, though, because there’s a gym in my building!

    Looks like such a unique/tasty recipe! Some of my new food finds are: Fage yogurt with Apple cinnamon raisins! The yogurt portion is okay, but the apple cinnamon raisins are so, so good!

    Both of your treats look delicious! I’m planning to whip up some cookies and muffins for a game night that my friend is hosting on Saturday and am slightly nervous…I haven’t baked in months! haha. I’ve missed being in the kitchen though so I can’t wait!

    And I’m proud of you for making it to the gym every morning! That’s some serious commitment. I need to get back into the workout groove…

    I am so glad I found your blog as I am looking for some sort of direction for my first ever trip to NYC! Also, your blog is sorta to die for. Hope you’ve had a good weekend! -Melissa
