We miss the Spice Girls.
It's been 19 years since the seminal girl group went on hiatus and took all the spice out of our life. But every once in a while, we get a glimpse into the Spice world of the past and it really makes our days.
Just a few months ago, Victoria Beckham (aka "Posh Spice") in a shoot with British Vogue laid down a solid few minutes of back to back "Spice Girls" puns to poke fun at herself:

And while that was fun, of course it would be Emma Bunton, aka "Baby Spice," who offered up a nostalgia bomb.
Bunton posted a picture of herself sitting on some gorgeously carpeted stairs that looked all too familiar.

Yes, that's right. On those stairs, in 1996, the Spice Girls made history with everybody's favorite nostalgia anthem, "Wannabe."
Need a refresher? Here's the video:

Anybody else still live in fear of finding out just exactly what a zig-a-zig-ah is?
Fans were ecstatic at seeing Bunton's photo:

This isn't the only nostalgia-bomb coming your way. Oh no, people of the world. Get ready.
The girls (excluding Victoria Beckham, who is busy with other commitments) are going to la la la around the world starting this May with a reunion tour!
The girls announced the tour with a teaser on the BBC in the style of a news bulletin.
