Filthy Stinking Rich

Rich is my wonderful mother driving us to and from the airport this weekend. She changed her plans and dealt with traffic to make sure we didn't have to take an uber or a cab. Her heart is gold and she is a gem of a lady.

Rich is flying to my 28th state [hello Illinois] to attend my fifth kickball tournament of the year. We have two more, plus other trips for the holidays, and I am so thankful we are able to live this jet setter lifestyle before kids.

Rich is friends who let you crash in their home even though they have other guests leaving the weekend you arrive. Le Husband's best friend lives right outside Nashville and he and his wife are always so gracious when we come into town. It was so wonderful spending time with two of our favorites and they were so kind accommodating our schedule with theirs.

Rich is indulging into a delicious smores milkshake on Friday night when your sisters fly into town. Who cares the trip was thirty minutes from the house we were staying, the fact that I saved them some money and was able to enjoy a beautiful evening in Nashville with them was fabulous.

Rich is reconnecting with kickball friends we haven't seen in months. I love going to tournaments because I always meet someone new and find a new place I know I can crash if I ever visit. Kickball friendships and camaraderie span the US and catching up with friends every month is so much fun.

Rich is getting to spend time on a kickball field with your sisters. All three of us played well this weekend and even though we didn't win we had fun competing together. I'm blessed to have sisters who are my best friends and teammates.


Rich is teaching Sportyspice and Babyspice the deliciousness that is Urban Grub. We ate there on Saturday night and it was just as fabulous as our visit last year. Luckily this year we sat at the oyster bar and made friends with the chefs in the open kitchen. It was fun learning more about restaurant life and picking up some tips regarding their menu.

Rich is a fabulous pizza man modeling his pizza for us because we asked nicely.

Rich is sharing ice cream in downtown Nashville with my three favorite people.

Rich is a job which lets me work from home when we schedule an extremely early morning flight due to prices and timing of weekend events. I may not love my job, but I'm able to enjoy my life which is a huge plus.

Rich is a dear blog friend reaching out because I've been a bit absent in blogland. #loveyoulady

Rich is food prep for the week with a glass of wine on the side.

Rich is dinner made by Le Husband and cleaned up by me. Life is good.

Rich is reading this post this morning and remembering why I am spending so much time blogging. Because I get to read these kind of life happenings that make one stop and smell the roses! Or all that delicious looking food you are posting. Man, makes me want ice cream here at 8:00 in the a.m.
