Trail Running {Prepping for the OC Chili Trail Run Series}

by This is Carrie on December 11, 2011

Over the past eight months, I’ve fallen deeply in love with my New Balance Minimus Road shoes. Those shoes have been with me for numerous races; from 5K’s to a half marathon to the Hood to Coast Relay. I credit a large part of my 5K, 10K, and half marathon PR’s this year to …

Since the advent of the Slim Slack refashioning tutorial, I just can’t bear to buy boys pants (other than jeans) off the rack anymore.  The selection of men’s pants at the thrift store is always so amazing, I think I have a stack of a half dozen pairs just waiting to get attacked with scissors.

Trying New Things: BMX as a Family

by This is Carrie on December 8, 2011

A few weekends ago, we borrowed some gear and headed out to the local BMX track to make one of Todd’s dreams come true: a night of riding BMX style as a family. Even though the girls had been resistant to the plan for months, once they got out there (one tumble aside) we couldn’t […]

When I spotted this little boot design on Pinterest a few months ago, i immediately popped over to IThinkSew.com and bought the pattern.  Best $4 I’ve ever spent since I think these boots are going to become my “go to” baby gift for the next little while (especially if I can keep finding houndstooth sport […]

Making Disneyland Memories

by This is Carrie on December 5, 2011

We’ve had Disneyland annual passes on and off for six years. I don’t think my kids will ever truly realize how lucky they are.  I went to Disneyland twice during my childhood.  My kids went twice last month.  As familiar is the park is, their excitement every time we go is as if we’re there […]

Making Stuff: Patchwork Bookmarks {Homemade Teacher Gift}

by This is Carrie on December 2, 2011

Paired with a gift card to the local bookstore, these patchwork bookmarks will make a great gift for my kid’s teachers. It was a wonderful project to get the kids involved with from choosing the fabrics from my huge bag of scrap fabric, to doing the actual sewing and ironing.  I had to do most […]
