Okay, I'm doing it. Mark the calendar: it's September 18, and I'm officially ready to start talking Halloween. 

I don't know when exactly I became Oct. 31st obsessed, but I'm suddenly swept up in costumes and candy and all that is spookily cute. Halloween is just THAT much more fun when you're a mama. Maybe it's all the adorable dress up options for the littles.

There are some ridiculously sweet ideas for kiddos out there, and I tend to gravitate to these delightfully delicious costume confections. And, luckily, my little lady is as agreeable as she is adorable--so we've been able to model a few.

Little Cupcake: Sugar, spice, and everything nice. This yummy pretty-in-pink costume is so scrumptious, you'll want to take a nibble off the top. Sprinkles and a cherry headband will make your goodie to-shoes look like a dessert diva.


Frappa-Chica: I'll have a tall non-fat, half-caff, extra-foam, with whip love her a latté, please and thank you. Coffee-obsessed mamas will be addicted to this cuppa cutie. And better yet, there's a coordinating barista costume for mama. How fun!
