Thankful for My Nail Appointments

I know that the title of this post sounds superficial but it’s not just about the beauty of my nails. It is more that once every two weeks, I get to feel like a woman. Not a Mom, not a wife… just a woman.

Every other week, I drop the girls off at my moms for a couple hours. My Christina picks me up from my moms, we grab Dunkin’ coffee and head to the nail salon.

While we wait for the salon to open and the women to set up, we enjoy our coffee and talk (what we do best lol). We both get gel manicures so we pick out our colors which I usually have a reason behind my color choice like a holiday or celebration. This week they are green for St. Patty’s Day that just passed.

In that hour of sitting while my nail color gets changed, I feel like a woman. There is no baby to feed, no tween drama, no house to clean. It’s just me in that chair getting my hands pampered.

It might not sound like it’s a big deal but to a work at home mom with an infant to care for, a tween to homeschool, a house to clean and a business to run. Just being a woman for 2 hours every other week is something I need to keep me sane.

With summer coming aka flip flop season, I’ll be adding pedicures to my bi weekly Woman time. I am thankful for the time I have to sit and feel like a woman while I get my nails painted!

What are you thankful for today?

  1. I love this.. so true.. everyone needs some quality “me” time

  2. I think its fate i found your post today. For the longest time in my life I have wanted to go to a nail bar and do something for myself for a change. Not be a mom. Not be a wife for a change. But the thought of spending money on ME makes me guilt away from it. But I think I shall try this.. just once and revel in it. Thank you for this post.

  3. Self care is so important. Am so glad that you’ve found your “me” time.

  4. I would love to get my nails done on a regular basis. I haven’t pampered myself in years. I’m really missing all of the little things I used to do for myself.

  5. Sounds interesting i want to try this and pamper myself. Thanks for sharing this post.
