Banana mango slush

HAPPY LABOR DAY, y’all! For Sailor Man and Co. that means family time, beaching and cool eats. The mom SUV registered a sweltering 98 degrees around 10am this morning 🤪 Talk about HOT! The beach was more crowded than usual, but we still found a place to set up shop.

East Beach

The sis and her BF graced us with their presence this weekend and we are having a ball…

Having family in town means more laughs and more fun…and more people to take turns pushing Junie in the jogging stroller! I still can’t get used to only “running with one arm.” But, Junie, you are worth it!

Last night we stayed up late and made a fire in the backyard (a.k.a burned our gazillion Amazon Prime boxes), which made waking up early that much harder. Nobody else was awake when Junie decided to tell the world good morning, so we went out, just the two of us. I like to think she enjoys running as much as I do. There is nothing like taking in the sunrise while the rest of the world slumbers. Aside from her stroller rolling along the pavement and her occasional commentary, we jogged along with the birds and cicadas as our soundtrack. Funny to think it just used to be me, myself and I.

We took a tour of Waters Edge and the outskirts of Ocean View before heading home for some fuel. June barely made it back before it all hit the fan…had to feed that chunky monkey 😂 . After taking care of her, I whipped up this delicious concoction:


Literally FOUR ingredients, add a side of Siggi’s yogurt , for protein, and you’ve got yourself one mean post-workout snack.


  • 1 frozen banana, peeled and cut in half
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • strawberries, washed, rinsed and chopped
  • blueberries, washed, rinsed and chopped

Directions: Place banana and mango in blender and combine to desired consistency. Pour into glass and top with strawberries and blueberries.

If that doesn’t look like sunshine and summer in a glass, I don’t know what does?!?! Enjoy my friends!
