Life Lately 9.29.22

Happy Thursday ☺️ We love Thursdays over here, and today we are just taking it easy, enjoying these amazing fall days, and soaking in all the little moments of the day. 

I’m still praying for all of our family (my parents are from Tampa) and friends in Florida this morning, as I know Hurricane Ian has been an unexpected way to end September. All of the families, homes, and lives that have been affected by this storm are in our thoughts and prayers... 

Today, to hopefully bring a tiny bit of joy and refreshment to your morning, I'm just simply sharing a few pictures of our Life Lately that haven't made it on here yet...small moments that have made up our day to day. Hope you enjoy on this Thursday morning!!

Tidbits About the Riddicks - Our Go-To Coffee Shop Orders

Happy Tuesday!! Well, today's post is slightly trivial 😂, but I love to get ideas from others so I thought with fall on our heels, it'd be fun to share some of our favorite Coffee Shop orders...along with some of our favorite coffee shops too! 
As I was going through some of my pictures for a few coffee shop ones, I realized that coffee and tea must be a huge part of our life because WOW we have a lot of pictures in a lot of random places enjoying our coffee and tea...

A Week in the Life [September 2022]

Happy, happy Monday!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend - we just loved soaking in every bit of family time this weekend - from the little things to some bigger ones, it was just a really sweet weekend. 

I've done a few "Day in the Life" posts on here, and I know they are always my favorite to read on other people's blogs too... So I started thinking it would be fun to do a "Week in the Life." I randomly picked last week because it seemed like a pretty ordinary life in the of the Riddicks...

Featured Photos #5

Happy Thursday!! It feels like fall this morning in Nashville and it seems to have come on the perfect day as the first official day of the season! Time to officially get out the pumpkins and make this home feel like the cozy season we are in over here ☺️

This is a series I started on here to capture some of the memories that pop up on my iPhone as "Featured Photos" from the years past. It's sweet to look back on so many random pictures, and I thought it'd be fun to share some more today. If you've missed any of the other posts, you can find them here. Anything from Pierce's surprise birthday party he planned for me to wedding dress shopping with my mom, a Bible study on the porch one summer with some girls, and Pierce's last day working at's all documented in these little posts...

Three Things

Hi there Wednesday!! I can't believe we have made it to the middle of the week...Yesterday was definitely a bit of a recoup day for us - Monday was pretty full from start to finish, so we loved a day and evening with a slower pace... 

Today two random favorite shows start for us tonight - my family growing up used to love Survivor and Pierce and I always dream about going on the Amazing Race, so we'll be cozied up tonight after a full day of work and tutoring watching those two tonight... 
But today, I thought it'd be fun to do another edition of Three Things. I did one back in July that you can read here, but with life moving full speed ahead, I thought it'd be fun to do another little and random update on all three of us.

Tidbits About the Riddicks - Our Hobbies

Happy Tuesday!!! I hope you guys are doing well and having a good start to your week!! We had our small group over last night and just love filling our home (and patio) with sweet community and time in the Word. 
Today I thought I'd do another edition of Tidbits About the Riddicks... If you missed the first post, you can find it here - just a few little tidbits about this and that. But today, it's featuring "Our Hobbies." I thought I'd leave out the laundry, dishes, diapers, and cleaning that are obviously our main "hobbies" these days 😂 and let you know what we like to do for fun when we have the time!! 

So here are we go....

Two of My Best Laundry Finds

Happy Monday!!! For the first time in quite a while, we are starting this Monday off feeling a *tiny* bit more ready for the week. We spent the weekend soaking up a lot of rest, time with family and time getting things in order around here. 

As I was catching up on *so much* laundry 😂 I started thinking that it would be fun to share my two best laundry finds that I've been using pretty much on repeat these days. It's nothing spectacular or too life changing, and I can't wait to hear your best laundry finds too, but I thought I'd share mine today. Sometimes the smallest joys are found in small everyday life things for me, so... here you go! I hope this helps next time you are looking for something to add to your laundry repertoire.

But today, I just have a few of our favorites for your Friday! A random assortment of things we're loving and moments we're trying to frame over here. ☺️

Let's Look...Organizing Your Closet.

Happy Wednesday!! Here we are again with another Let's Look...Pierce in particular loves these posts because he says they are always about organizing/cleaning 😂 And...for the ones I've done, he's not too far off. 
Last summer, I joined the link-up with Bathroom Organization, and this year, we've talked about Eating Healthy and Everyday Cleaning...'s all about Organizing Your Closet...sigh... 😂

Tidbits About the Riddicks

Happy Tuesday!!! We are waking up in Nashville after our weekend with my family in Kentucky. It was such a fun weekend full of football, family, sunshine, and the US Open. 

I always feel like the month of September is a fun mix of summer and fall - the pool being open and the sunshine makes it feel like summer, but the cooler air in the morning and evening and the way the sunlight hits the glistening leaves makes it feel like the beginning of fall. We are counting down till our favorite month coming up soon though!! 

But today I thought it would be fun to kick off a new series that I wanted to start on here - Tidbits About The Riddicks ☺️

100th Post 🎉 Q&A

Wow!! The 100th Post on The Riddick Family Blog...

I started this little blog February 2021 while Pierce was working in the studio all weekend recording a friend's had been a dream of mine for so long, and that weekend, I wore something cozy, packed up with laptop, grabbed a London Fog, and sat in the back of the studio turning a little dream into this sweet space....

Life Lately 9.7.22

Happy Wednesday!! Today I thought it would be fun to do a little Life Lately, which could also be called "Riddicks on Rainy Days." 😂 It's been pretty gray around here, so our life has looked like a lot of baby snuggles, reading, tea, and a little US Open mixed with some house projects...sounds like the life right hahaha 

Tomorrow is the 100th POST for the Riddick Family Blog, so I thought it would be fun to do a little Q&A to celebrate all the fun and blessings that this little page has held. I have a few questions you guys have asked, but if there is anything that comes to mind, feel free to leave it in the comments or email me at, and I'll try to get to it tomorrow!!! 

Without further-ado, here is a little look at our life lately...

Featured Photos #4

Happy Tuesday!! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! It was a rainy one here in Nashville, so we stayed cozied up, loving on Jane, having dinner with friends and working on our house projects... 

And if anyone is wondering, there are currently a few pumpkins scattered throughout our home...slowly but surely 😉
I thought today it would be fun to pop on here and do another Featured Photos. It's definitely been a fun series on look back through what my phone picks as it's "Featured Photos" for the day or week and pick a few to share.

Happy Friday!!! And start to your Labor Day Weekend!! As much as we wish we were headed out to the lake for the next three days, we're calling it the next best thing and staying here for a simple long weekend with our little fam...

We're going to try to get the house back in some type of order as we add more drywall dust from our other rooms...maybe soon it'll be put back together in time to decorate for Christmas 😉 hahaha

But today, I just have a few random favorites from our past week...most are small simple joys that I hope you're finding in your days as well!! Hope you enjoy reading as you get ready to start your long weekend!

September Goals

Happy September 1st!!! I've been around in the blog world long enough to know that this is such a fun day because it really does kick-off fall and all that is to come! 
I remember around this time last year, I literally told Pierce that I just loved the holidays....he proceeded to tell me that we were no where NEAR the holidays bahahaha So...I'll be over here slowly getting out one pumpkin at a time and hoping he might not notice 😉
