Carrot Cake Pancakes

I'm hooking up with Today's Creative Blog for Get Your Craft On! Be sure and stop by to see all the other projects!

Today I'm linking up with Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday.

I'm still trying to finish painting my living room. I still have the woodwork left to do, but I wanted to share my latest project. Here's a picture of my bare wall.

My husband offered to put our new vinyl on the wall and Sloan wanted to help. I tend to put things up crooked. My hubby was smart, he used a level.

I wouldn't of even thought of using a level!

Here's a better picture of my sweet hubby. He's cute, huh!

I thought it turned out pretty good. I still have more to do, so I'll share that later!

I found this recipe on a blog the other day, and now I can't remember who's blog. So, if it was you please let me know! As soon as I saw the recipe I knew I had to make them! What a sneaky way to get a vegetable in at breakfast! The family loved them, well, except Sloan. She didn't like seeing the carrots in them. I thought they tasted like carrot cake.

LOVE your Keep Calm wall! I have a quote that's really meaningful in my family- maybe I'll try something like this...

Looks great! My oldest daughter worked at the Shabby Chic stores in Corte Madera and then San Francisco, until they closed, so I'm partial to anything that reflects back to them. Great job!

I hope you'll swing by AtticMag this week to tour my home.
