To get the weekend started off right, I’m sharing a fun laid back style post and a giveaway to Billie + Betty
on this beautiful Friday.
My cute Ice Cream Tank is from Billie + Betty, but more on that in a bit!
day, Patrick and I hit the streets of our neighborhood for an evening
bike ride. It’s probably our favorite thing to do after work, and it gets us off of the couch and away from the TV, which is always a bonus!
Patrick is the more serious biker of the two of us, I tend to get
really distracted by all of the cute & unique houses on each and every corner and
before I know it, he is 50 yards ahead of me.
But before he wandered too far away from me on this particular evening, I managed to convince him to stop in the middle of the bike trail so we could snap some pictures of these oh-so-pretty orange flowers.
And snag a couple of photos of my trusty bike
and comfy outfit, for good measure. 😉
Btw I had to share – this green Anorak
is on mega sale at the moment at Anthro!
Lately I’ve been adding more and more comfy and cozy casual pieces to my wardrobe, which is something I didn’t do too much of before. (I was crazy apparently?)
When I get home from work, I like to throw on a tank, jeans or leggings, and just unwind, and this Ice Cream screen printed tank from Billie + Betty is just the ticket! It’s so lightweight & easy to layer under a jacket for when the temps decide to dip a bit more than usual.
Billie + Betty
has plenty of other fun tanks, tops, jewelry & accessories at the moment so I’m thrilled that they are giving away a $25 Gift Card to one of my readers. Just enter the giveaway below, and I’ll be choosing the lucky winner on Monday, Oct. 12!

Anywho, the rest of our bike ride (since I had my camera with me) was spent with me stopping on pretty much every single block to snap pictures of the gorgeous houses of the Houston Heights.
It took us quite longer to get home than our usual bike trips do. 🙂
This white house is my favorite in all of Houston. It kind of reminds me of the one from Practical Magic. And I am totally convinced it’s haunted, too.
And last but not least, our little yellow bungalow awaited us at the end of our evening biking adventure.
Side note: since I’ve never really had a front porch to spruce up before, does anybody have any good fall decor tips? My lone pumpkin is looking a little …. lonely.
In other news, this weekend Patrick and I are headed to L’Auberge Lake Charles Casino! We aren’t the gambling type but we figure why not pretend we’re in Vegas for the weekend and have ourselves some fun? We’re going with another couple and I’m so excited to check out their pool & lazy river! There are some benefits of Texas fall weather after all.
We are definitely due for some good luck right about now too, so it’s perfect timing to hit up a casino, right? Just last night (when the weather was absolutely beautiful out I might add) a tree decided it wanted to snap in half and crush my car. Fabulous. But worse things can certainly happen and I’m glad we’re okay. The car, on the other hand, is another story….
Thank you all for reading this lengthy post and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
