How often do you redecorate your house? My dream would be to throw everything out and start fresh with a designer. I struggle with “putting” everything together. I feel like I always have this vision and I can never, ever pull it off. I end up with a hodge podge of things that never look quite as I imagined it and I get depressed and want to throw it all out and start over again. We’ve been in our house two years and the urge is strong, very strong. It doesn’t help that when I go over to Danielle’s house that hers is the exact opposite. It’s completely put together and stylish and it’s what my dreams are made of. Maybe I need to break up with her….or maybe she just needs to come decorate for me. I would prefer the second one since I kind of big fat puffy heart her!

Easy Fruit Salad ~ Simple and Delicious Fresh Fruit Salad Recipe Using Vanilla Pudding Mix!

So now I’m cruising every online shopping retailer available looking at rugs, window coverings, decor etc. dreaming of ways to update my house and make it brighter without actually painting or replacing any large items. So far there is one area rug in my shopping cart and that’s it. Like I said I can have a vision but actually pulling it together is a totally different thing completely. My husband should count his blessings that I can’t pull it off because it’s much easier on the pocket book this way! That is until I break down and hire someone to design the concept I like and pay them to decorate it for me. That’s kind of like this blog format. I finally hired someone to design it after trying to do it my self a few years ago. Luckily she got my vision that I was trying to create and pulled it all together and design my logo and layout for me. I still like it and don’t plan on changing anything soon! See sometimes hiring someone is better because you are happier with it then!

How does that story tie in with this delicious fruit salad? Um, it really doesn’t to be quite honest. I had a craving for fruit salad, which I haven’t craved in about 20 years since my brother graduated high school and my mother ordered way to much fruit salad and I felt like we ate it for months. Obviously we didn’t because it wouldn’t last that long but in my youth it sure did seem like that long! I’m back to craving fresh, flavorful fruit salad so I thought I’d whip this up for you. It’s delicious and perfect for all your summer gatherings!
