13 Cool Things You Need To Click On Today

It's Halloween! What are you guys doing? Are you dressing up? I'll be taking my monkey and my Elsa (actually, she's changed the costume--she's now going to be "Super Elsa," a combo of Elsa and Supergirl. It's kind of rad, actually) trick or treating in my neighborhood (sans costume for me). Then I'll come home and spend the night handing out candy here, which will be fun for the first five minutes, less fun and infinitely more annoying after the 50th or so doorbell ring.

Speaking of candy, I am pretty proud of myself. For the first time ever, this season, I a) bought candy I dislike so I wouldn't be tempted to eat it all (apologies to the kids in my neighborhood for all the Oh Henry bars you'll be getting). And b) bought my candy at the very last minute so that I didn't spend the entire month of October slowly picking my way through the bags of Tootsie Rolls and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups until I have to go back to the store the day before Halloween anyway to buy more candy since I already ate everything. 

All bets are off when my kids come home with their overflowing treat bags though. Pray for me!

Whatever you're doing, have a great weekend! Here are some fun links to start you off.
