Me Made May Day 9

Another MMM item I've been wearing all week just not out of the house is this towel wrap for my wet hair.  You can buy these in the store, I believe they are called Towel Turbies or something like that. I decided to make my own.  A lot better than wearing a big ass heavy towel on your head that never stays on anyway.  If you'd like a tutorial on this please let me know. I'd be happy to do one.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!  Now off to enjoy the fruit/chocolate chip ice cream smoothie my husband is making...This should be interesting because the blender just sounded like it kicked the bucket and I heard my husband say, "What a disaster."
