Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We spent the weekend before peeling through my Pinterest boards & making our final decisions on what we want to try to accomplish this summer as far as the house in concerned. We ordered a bunch of stuff & this week most of it arrived. So this weekend we were knee deep in projects – which I love. Building a new house is like starting off with a clean slate. I have more projects than we could reasonably accomplish in a year’s time. I’m completely overwhelming the hubs with thoughts, ideas & plans. But you see – we were the first to build this model house on our street. We were the first house here. Then the builder proceeded to add the same model every second or third house all the way up & down the street. If I had known that – I would have picked a different model. I like to be different & now I’m going into overdrive to make my house stand out from the rest. So anyhow…….at the end of our long days working on things I whipped up this Banana Piña Colada for us to enjoy. I just had to share it here with you all for the 2nd week of Mocktail Monday.
We were exhausted after all the things we were trying to cram into 2 short days. I absolutley can’t wait to share it all with you. It’s going to be a great summer packed full of really cool stuff. Each year we will continue to work on the house to get it just right. So many plans – now I just need to figure out how to extend our weekends. I see a whole lot more of these refreshing bevies to enjoy out in the yard once we are done.
Banana Piña Colada : Mocktail Monday
- 1 frozen banana
- 8 ounce can pineapple chunks with juice

- 2 cups ice
- *save out 3-6 chunks of pineapple for garnish

Combine all ingredients except additional pineapple & cherry garnish in blender
