“Me time” to Carrie Underwood is a quiet night at home with a bottle of red ... nail polish, that is.

On Saturday night (December 12), Carrie posted a picture of her perfectly polished Christmas toes and hands. But motherhood is anything but lame to the working mom.

“This is kind of weird but I feel overall like I’m kind of a happier person,” she says. “I don’t know why, but I just feel like I’m just kind of in a better mood most of the time, unless I’m really sleepy.”

Carrie’s next show is a performance at the Belk Bowl in Charlotte on December 30 when NC State plays Mississippi State. She wraps the year with a performance on "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year’s Eve with Ryan Seacrest" on ABC.
