My favorite holiday of the year is fast approaching. I already have my costume all planned out (Elle Woods!), but it was--as always--a difficult decision. Let me share my short list with you, in the hopes that it will give someone some last-minute inspiration:
- air hostess (I thought of this long before Pan Am, I'll have you know.)
- Little Red Riding Hood
- Pippa Middleton (I would have put together the outfit myself, but you can "cheat.")
- Amelia Earhart
- T-Mobile spokeswoman (Didn't know about their publicity campaign around her before I googled her image--smart.)
- Morton Salt girl
- Paddington Bear
- The Black Swan (with the husband as The White Swan)
- A toddler in tiara!
Wishing you only treats,

Happy October, everyone! I've just returned from a lovely vacation in the UK, which was especially fun given that one of the books I'm currently editing is set in early-20th-century London.
Related to our travels, my husband has finally posted an entry to his blog that we commoners can understand, so I thought I'd share it.
Also, while watching Food Network UK in my hotel, I learned that it was (or had recently been) National Cupcake Week there! You can be sure that my stay in Cardiff thus included a visit to Cupcakery Number 10 on this list.
