TGIF! As always, I’m super excited the weekend is upon us and looking forward to another warm and sunny day here in NYC. Nothing like springy Fridays, right?
Speaking of spring, don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday! I always hate setting the clocks forward and losing that hour, but I love that we’ll have more daylight in the evenings. So it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make 😉
Let’s get right into this week’s Friday Favorites, shall we?
My desire to workout seems to be returning a bit. Hallelujah. I’m sure the spring like weather has helped bring me out of my funk of only wanting to sit on the couch and eat chips. (However, that desire does still exist.)
My workouts this week have looked a little something like this:
- Sunday: Off
- Monday: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD
- Tuesday: 5 mile treadmill run
- Wednesday: 4 mile treadmill run
- Thursday: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD
- Friday: Nike Training Club’s Back Definer
- Saturday: 5 mile run (First outside run planned this year!)
I picked up a bag of these this week during an afternoon snack hunt. I think these will be polished off before the end of the day…Love the saltiness!
Gaslight Mystery Series
I have been on a serious reading kick lately and have been devouring the Gaslight Mystery Series by Victoria Thompson. There are 19 in the series and I’ve read (and re-read) 17 of them. I’m semi-putting off starting the next one because I know I’ll finish it so quickly and have to wait until May for the 19th book to be out. #bookloverstruggles
Set in late 1890s New York City, the stories follow Frank Molloy (a police detective) and Sarah Brandt (a midwife from a wealthy and prominent family). The two protagonists somehow seem keep meeting under the wrong circumstances, mostly murders around the city. It’s hard to deny the passion that’s developing between the two of them as the series progresses. And even though Frank hates involving Sarah in the seedy or controversial situations that he finds himself in as a member of the police force, often her well-bred background or knowledge as a nurse and midwife prove invaluable, and I find myself cheering every time their paths cross.
Plus, as I’ve mentioned before, I love history and NYC (and a good evolving love story!), so I feel these books were written just for me!
My latest Stitch Fix came in the mail this week and I’m already obsessed! I hope to do a full review of what I decided to keep and return next week, but let’s just say I already know I’m keeping two items because I wore them yesterday!

Happy Weekend 🙂
