Music Monday: B Girls

Every busy mom understands and treasures “Me Time”.  Some moms feel guilty about carving a little time in their day to dedicate to themselves.  I am NOT one of those moms.  I crave my Me Time and typically running is my ultimate Me Time, however these days, my Me Time is pretty scarce with an infant.  Although I’ve been able to squeeze in some aerobics when the baby falls asleep, I still haven’t been able to fit in any runs.  All in due time, I suppose.

 

Another favorite “Me Time” pastime is a pedicure.  Having my piggies pampered is like a Calgon experience.  It takes me away.

 

A couple of Fridays ago, I had just that moment.  I snuck off to the salon to give my gnarly mommy toenails a makeover.  As soon as I walked into the salon, the person behind the desk ordered me to pick a color and I walked over to the wall of colors to make my selection.

 

The names of the colors always make me giggle, like “Hot in Havana” or “Beachy Green”.  Depending on my color mood, I will pick a color based on its name.  That particular day, I was in a hot pink kind of mood and as I read the labels on the bottom of the bottles, only one would due: B-Girlz.

 

A huge smile stretched across my face.  Once my feet were soaking in the sudsy warm water, I texted my sister to share the news.  I knew she would get the old school reference and only my sister would truly appreciate it. I pictured her breaking out in laughter about the name of nail polish as memories of spring break road trips from our drunken Daisy Dukes college days sprung to mind. Good times.

 

Isn’t it funny how a simple phrase, a shared joke or song can take you back?

 

And if you don’t know B means, let us explain.

    These color nails are fun and interesting. I also do (usually purchasing) things depending on my mood, like buying a dish, because the name is “Don’t tell anyone, chicken.” lol!

    I like this tune; keeps me awake :-) Happy Monday, Momma!

    I definitely understand how a phrase, color, or piece of music can take you back to a time or place in your life. I also completely agree that a pedicure is such a great way to spend “me-time.”
