What kind of blogger doesn’t realize that we’re only one day away from Halloween? The kind spending October at the beach, I guess. I just can’t get over the fact that TOMORROW IS HALLOWEEN! And then NOVEMBER is only one day after that…..I want to pretend that these facts aren’t real, but who am I fooling? So here’s my way of making up for alllll the blog posts that I could have written had I realized that Halloween was so close.

Nobody works on Friday mornings. Here are a few of my favorite reads this week to keep you busy instead . (Promise I won’t tell your boss!)

  • When I first heard about this video I was all “these kids are really young for all of these words” and after watching it I’m all “how do I get one of those shirts?!”
  • I’m getting healthy by getting back into my running groove. Have you always wanted to run, too? Here are some tips for new runners.
  • Knitting Ain’t Easy is thinking about adding printables to the shop! Share your thoughts on the idea here.
