    I love Frog Eye salad. I have not had it in a really long time. Maybe I will whip up a batch!

    I agree about your new wall paper! Gets me in the mood to decorate - which my husband has specifically forbade me to do until December actually starts. I sometimes get carried away! LOL

    Jen ~ I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving. I don't leave the house that day, so I need something to do :-)

    I love the blue and white look - it's fun.

    You had me til the pineapple, but I think I'd just leave it out cuz it does sound yummy.

    Stacy ~ Maybe substitute another can of the mandarin oranges instead? It'd probably still be just as yummy.

    Mailyn ~ Thanks! I got the template from Pannasmontata Templates, but I had to do a lot of tweaking because it wasn't compatible with beta blogger. I'm happy with it :-)

    How funny, Dylan, I was just posting on your blog :-) I'm getting into the holiday spirit so figured it was time for a little face lift.

    Let me know if you try the Frog Eye Salad ~ it's a family favorite. Somehow I got delegated to be the one to make it for all our functions ~ I'm making it for my sister's wedding too.
