Scary Stories & Cute Cupcakes

You know what’s scary?

Halloween is less than a week away which means that Thanksgiving is four weeks way which means that Christmas is eight weeks away.

I can’t breathe.

You know what else is scary?

My eldest daughter will turn 14 the day after Halloween which means that she will turn 16 in two years which means she’ll be leaving for college two years after that.

STOP the madness. 

Do you see how my mind works?


My morning was scary too. I had my cup of coffee, made breakfast, packed lunches, fed the animals, made sure that everyone had their vitamins and got ready to workout. Seems rather normal right? Well then as I waited for My Yanni to finish up a business call before heading to the gym, my mind started whirling through my to do list. Before I knew it I had grabbed the white pumpkins to be used as a centerpiece for an upcoming post and had just started to carve them when I thought, “I should have different clothes on”.

This is where things began to unravel.

I had dashed to the closet to grab a sweatshirt. Somehow that turned into trying on clothes and more clothes then shoes and boots and then I noticed a dust bunny & cob webs on my hardwood floors which made me think of Halloween and…the pumpkins waiting in the kitchen.


Halloween is less than a week away.

Tomorrow is Sweet Cheeks Halloween party at school. Her very last Halloween party of elementary school which means it’s MY last Halloween party of elementary school.


So I made cupcakes. Just because.

Makes perfect sense doesn’t it?

Stress+ multi-tasking-like-a-deer-on-roller-skates = easy-cute-cupcakes.

Makes perfect sense to me.

To save time I used a boxed cake mix and pre-made icing and decided to embellish the little cuties with some fun ribbon flags.

I happened to have some ribbon with “Happy Halloween” written on it, but you can use any kind of Halloween ribbon that you’ve got.

Just cut the ribbon into 2 inch length pieces, dab some hot glue to the back edge and wrap them around the tip of a toothpick.

Make some cupcakes and frost them…

And stick the flags in.

So festive and darling.

Now you’ll even have time to dust up all of those cobwebs hanging around your house.

Or if you’re like me, decide that they make the perfect Halloween decoration.

Speaking of Halloween decorations, I didn’t even get to tell you how I haven’t had the time to put up all of my beloved Halloween decorations. Or how I accidentally took my dog’s allergy pill last week.


Now THAT’S scary.

Which reminds me.

Oh never-mind.

  1. I haven’t put any halloween decorations yet so don’t feel bad and that pill situation is kinda weird haha hope you are fine! 🙂

  2. Once that dog vitamin takes effect you’ll probably find yourself howling at the moon on Halloween! These cupcakes are cute, especially with the little flags on them.

  3. I am sitting here laughing at the thought of you taking your dog’s allergy pill! Oh my gosh…that is too funny.

    My mind works in the EXACT same way. Kiddo is 12…and I’m already thinking…he’s almost out of the house…what will we do?!? Where will he go?!? He’s TWELVE! But, still! It goes so fast!

    The cupcakes look delicious and I love the little flag toppers! So smart!

  4. Okay, I panic about all the things above, but your precious baby turning 14-EEEK. That what definitely transform to deer on rollerskates!

    And of course – love the cupcakes!

  5. Baking is most definitely a stress reliever for me. This was my “almost” empty nest year with both kids being in school full time now, grade 1 and 3. I’m a little lonely during the day, thank god for baking projects! Though now I miss my little baker girl who’s in grade one all day. Sigh. They grow too fast.
