1-4, 10) I went to the Changed retreat this weekend, and it was such a lovely experience!  I’m still mentally processing through everything, but it’s safe to say God was moving and speaking and doing big things in the lives of myself and the other women who attended.  We stayed at Oakridge Camp in Anadarko which is such a beautiful spot, so I took quite a few nature photos–especially with the SNOW!  I took some with my DSLR camera too, so I’ll blog those soon too.

5) When I got home on Sunday, Colin said we should go for a walk in the snow!  He knows me so well :)

6) We were walking in the grocery store when we passed a whole end cap of these and said “it’s the holidays, why not?”….so it begins.

7) Beth and the Griz came over for a study date (well, study for her, editing for me) earlier this week!  It reminded me of the good old days when we lived together–good times!

8) Sometimes you just need tea and a good book (which in this case was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) when it’s cold outside.

9) …this is my friend, Heather.  Haha, we are doing some fun things for Christmas through the yoga studio and we did a photo shoot this week to prepare for them!  This meant that we walked around Goodwill in Christmas pajamas and santa/elf hats looking for ugly sweaters.  Apparently no one is afraid to talk to you when you look super ridiculous like that, we got stopped by lots of people.

This weekend we’re going on a retreat with our lifegroup–I can hardly wait!

His Truly,

Mary O.

Mini Adventure: Cold Kayaking

Since we had some early snow this weekend, I’ve been in all-out Winter mode dreaming of peppermint hot chocolate, reading by a fireplace, and playing in the snow.  It seems we still have at least a couple of weeks left of late Fall though, so I’m trying to force myself to soak up the last bits of pumpkin and Fall colors before I get to crazy about Winter.

Before the weather got too crazy, Colin and I got to take the kayaks out for some chilly paddling the other day.  I’m hoping we can go at least one more time before the lake gets icy and the wind gets even worse.  Or maybe we’ll just get wet suits and paddle out onto the ice :) kidding!  Anyway, I hope this inspires you to get outside, even though the weather might not be 75 degrees and sunny!

 What outdoor sports/activities do you love when it’s cold outside?  I’d love to hear!

Even though this week was short for me, it felt so long!  Maybe it was just because we had such a great weekend?

1-2) These are from setting up for Friendsgiving last weekend!  My friend, Kourtni, is decorating tables in the first photo, and the second is of this awesome pumpkin with our hashtag on it.  If you want to see more photos from the event before I post to my blog about it, you can check out #okcfriendsgiving on Instagram!

3) This guy :) Because our kitchen was full of dishes after Friendsgiving, and we would have been too exhausted to make our own coffee anyway, we went on a little breakfast date on Saturday.  Incidentally, I consider breakfast dates to be the best kind–closely followed by the general coffee date and the lovely Christmas date.

4) My other bestie is ENGAGED!  I can’t wait to be a bridesmaid in my friend Chelsea (and her fiancé, Sean’s) wedding in the Spring.  I love love :)  I also love this little gift that she gave me!

5) Colin and I went cold-weather kayaking this weekend before the suuuuper cold front hit.  It was so much fun, and I can’t wait to go again!

6) This weekend I’m on a women’s retreat!  We got these temporary tattoos with the key verse for the retreat on them.  The idea is to memorize the verse before it fades away– I love it!

7) It’s officially cinnamon-pecan-oatmeal-every-morning season, so here’s a pic to celebrate.

8) I got to hang out with Beth a little earlier this week, and she was showing me how she and her husband have “trained” their dog to cuddle with them haha, I’ve missed her, and Riley (the dog)

9) IT’S BEANIE SEASON!  Because it’s, like, really really cold outside right now.  I’m not sure where it came from, but I love it!

The happiest of weekends to you!  Stay warm!

His Truly,

Mary O.

Senior: Magan

This lovely girl is graduating from high school soon, and I had the opportunity to capture a little of who she is in this stage of her life on camera!  That’s definitely my favorite part of senior photos–capturing a moment in someone’s life.  High school is such a unique time in life, and I think it’s important to be able to look back on who we were back then as we get older, and what better way to do that than through senior photos?

I’m not going to lie, I basically have felt like a zombie for the last 24 hours since we’re prepping for Friendsgiving around here!  It’s tonight though, and I can’t wait!

1) Here’s an “artsy” pic of my friend, Maddy, posting to my Instagram for me…because she’s a champ.  And Hoboken is lovely.

2-3) We went to my family’s “Ranch” this weekend for a relaxing trip, and it was awesome.  Anytime I get to read in a hammock is a good time, and seeing friends chatting out in the sun all afternoon is a memory I will always cherish :)

4) Holy Yoga….man it’s awesome.  There’s something about digging into the Word and talking about the Lord while on my mat that is humbling and beautiful.  Also coffee.  Always coffee.

5) I got to take my friend, Whitney’s senior photos this week, and we went inside OU’s football stadium for some of the shots!  I’m not entirely sure we were supposed to be there, but it’s fine….the things we do for a good photo.

6) Friendsgiving place cards!  It’s been fun getting everything together for tonight–if you want to have a look at last year’s celebrations, check it out here!

Have an amazing weekend!  Get lots of rest and go outside a little!

His Truly,

Mary O.
