I’m going to admit something pretty embarrassing here. Just, do me a favor, and don’t judge too much…

Here goes: Before today, I hadn't gone for a pedicure in—eeks—well over a year. Okay, fine, go ahead and drop your jaw. It’s shocking and troubling and I was seeeeeriously overdue. (Also, can you say #firstworldproblems?)

Flip-Worthy Flip Flops For Mom

Truth is: I have major mani/pedi anxiety. I all but jump out of my skin when I’m sitting in that leather massage chair with someone huddled over my feet, clipping and filing and scrubbing and buffing. Even if I bring my own tools, I’m constantly thinking that the tub isn’t clean enough or the towels they’re using are stained (hmmmm, is that red polish or blood?), and I actually ask “is your system pipeless?” every time I go. (More often than not they have no idea what I’m talking about. BTW, google it. You’re welcome.)

I usually “do” my own feet, but I haven’t had much time as of late with a full-time job and a toddler and infant at home. (Once again, #woeisme.) Needless to say, I’ve been wearing closed-toe shoes for the last few months to hide this not-so-chic situation. But the official start of summer is exactly one day away and I’m ready to SHOW some TOE! Yep, I put on my big-girl pants and went to the nail salon. (I’m irrationally proud.)
