Make Your Own Salad Dressing

Make Your Own Salad Dressing (this posts contains affiliated links) I really like salads. I know, I feel a little weird as I type that. But I like salads.

DIY: Hooded Towel

One of the greatest baby gear items, is the hooded towel. I love that they go over their head and keep their heads warm in the winter, and I even use them with toddlers.

But the problem is, he is very tall, and those towels do…
