What's Up Wednesday [November 2022]

Happy Wednesday!! For some reason, it pretty much already feels like December to me, but here we are celebrating the end of November! It's been a full month, but the first month in a while where we feel a little back to our pace that we can keep up with...just in time for the holidays and sprint that December usually is, right?! Hahaha

But here's just a little bit of what's been going on with us recently as we finish up this last day of November!

Tidbits About the Riddicks - Our Laundry System

Happy Tuesday from a soon-to-be rainy Nashville! As I'm knee deep catching up on all things laundry and unpacking from our Thanksgiving week, I thought maybe it'd be the perfect time to take a slight pause on all things Holiday and Christmas to share our current laundry system with you incase you too are working on that this week.  It's also been one of my November goals, so it's been on my mind this month.

Christmas Giveaway 🎄✨

Aww HAPPY MONDAY!!! And maybe the *official* start to the Christmas season 🎉 

I hope everyone had such a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had the best week and just loved getting to see family and soak up Jane's first big holiday! It was the sweetest, and we're sad it's over, but I thought maybe we could make this gloomy Monday morning a bit more joyful with a fun little giveaway on here!

Tidbits About the Riddicks - Our Thanksgiving Favorites

Happy Friday!!! I can't believe next week, we are kicking off all of our Thanksgiving festivities... We love Thanksgiving week. Growing up, it was ALWAYS my favorite... I still dream about waking up on Thanksgiving morning... Out of school, Macy's Day Parade on, family together, the kitchen smelling amazing... We had fruit salad for breakfast and football on in the afternoon... It was just the perfect day in my mind. And it still is... Since Pierce and I have gotten married, it's turned into more of a "Thanksgiving week," but we still love it all the more! And we can't wait for Jane to experience this sweet week! 

As I started typing out Friday Favorites this week, I realized that basically, it was our Thanksgiving Favorites, so I decided to make it more of a Tidbits post and combine the two! So here are just a few little tidbits and favorites about our Thanksgiving!!

Favorite Gifts For Teachers/Friends/Neighbors

Happy Wednesday, my friends! I am all turned around this week... First of all, how is Thanksgiving next week?! Second of all, I asked Pierce at dinner on Monday if it had been a busy week for him at work... He laughed and said, "Well, it's Monday." And yesterday, I proceeded to bring all the trash down in our house because I thought it was "Trash Day," which is Wednesday at our house... So...basically, I have no idea what day it is around here, much less what season 😂

I've been reflecting on these little gifts we've given the past few years in hopes they would inspire me because my Christmas shopping is pretty much at zero right now... Maybe by the time December rolls around, my inspiration will be a little higher to find some fun things, but for now, I hope this week these little posts are giving you some creative ideas for gifting!
Today, I thought it'd be fun to collect a random assortment of things I've given/received as a teacher, friend, neighbor, small group member, etc. I must warn you that some of these are rather small, but sometimes those gifts can be just as fun to give and receive!

Favorite Gifts for Guys/Husbands/Dads

Good morning!! Happy Tuesday!! As I sit here and write this with some Christmas music playing in the background and a *half* decorated tree 😂 I was thinking it would be fun to post some ideas of gifts I've gotten Pierce, our dads, brothers, brother-in-laws, etc the past few years! 

Thanks to everyone who gave so many great Holiday Post ideas yesterday! If you have more, feel free to add them here, and I'll try to get to as many as I can this year!! 
But this post is dedicated to all the guys who can be semi harder to buy, I don't have a million ideas for you, but I can share what I've gotten the past few years that have been some of my favorites and maybe it'll inspire you with some fresh ideas as the holidays are coming. Mainly, I just like thinking what would bless them in a creative and new way. So hopefully you find something that you can do the same for with your favorites.

Monday Thoughts...

Happy Monday morning from a very cold Nashville, TN!! Somehow the temperature dropped 40° over the weekend here, but it was still the sweetest few days even through the cold! Hope you had a good weekend and are staying warm wherever you are this morning too!! 

This morning, I just have some random Monday thoughts for your day and a question for you too!!

Life Lately 11.10.22

Happy Thursday!! We honestly love our Thursdays over here... This morning I thought it’d be fun to just document a little of what’s been going on around here. It’s honestly never really that exciting, but I know it’s in the day-to-day that the most joy and sweet memories can be found sometimes. 

So here’s a little look into our life lately. I hope yours has been filled with the same everyday sweetness as you go about your days too.

Let's Look - Shopping for Our Moms

Happy Wednesday!!! Well, today I thought it would be fun to link back up with a favorite blog link-up and today it's where we shop for our Moms... With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd take you guys through a few things we have given my mom over the past few years... 

Pierce and I try to be intentional with our gifts/giving. It's one of my favorite things trying to brainstorm and come up with ideas for everyone in our families, and some years, I hit things spot on more than others, but we always try to enjoy a season just to love our people through giving. So, without furtherado, here are a few things we've given my mom! I hope these ideas inspire you in your next few Christmases, holidays, birthdays, and Mother's Days and mostly just encourage you to be creative and have fun in gifting to your friends and family!!

Family Beach Trip 2022

Happy Tuesday!!! Today I thought it would be fun to kick-off with a few pictures from our beach trip at the end of October. My family grew up regularly taking a beach trip in the fall, and we all came to love it so much. It's where my love for the beach really started and although now we've gone in so many different months, fall is still a special time...  
And for our little Jane, it seemed perfect too!!

November Goals

Aww Happy Monday!!! The first one of November! We had the best weekend over here... It was our first one home just the three of us in quite some time so we just soaked it in...a rainy Saturday and cozy Sunday meant soup on the stove, a fire in the living room, You’ve Got Mail on Friday night and a little football to end the weekend. We loved every minute.

Tidbits About the Riddicks - Our Dating Years

Happy Tuesday!!!! And Happy November!! Aww it feels so good to be back!! I missed being on here the past week - thanks for all of your messages and sweet comments... Taking the past week off reminded me how much I love this little space and all the processing and life that comes from writing these posts. Thanks for being here each morning with me!!!

We got back from our beach trip late Sunday night and spent yesterday settling back into Nashville life... It was such a great week with family - we laughed, laid in the sun, and spent most of the time watching Jane take in every aspect of beach life...she loved it and so did we!! 
While we were there, we celebrated our fourth anniversary, which was so fun and special, and I thought this week would be fun to do a four-part Tidbits About the Riddicks all about dating, engagement, wedding, and married life so far... I've had so many questions about all of those and thought this would be a fun week to walk down memory lane for a bit...
