I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to it.  In case you couldn’t tell.

1-3)  Last week, Colin and I celebrated 9 years of being together!  I can hardly believe it’s been that long, but somehow it has.  For more on that, you can check out this post I wrote last year.  We have a traditional date that we go on including dinner, peppermint hot chocolate, and Christmas lights.  These photos are from that date this year–it was so fun!

4) Saturday was the first free day we’ve had in a long time.  I loved getting to sip my coffee and eat blueberry oatmeal, and watch White Christmas.  Relaxing times are my favorite.

5-9) Our friends, the Garders, threw a tacky sweater Christmas party complete with a photo booth…and it was awesome.  As you can see we had lots of fun being goofy!

10) I finally got to experience Evoke’s delicious food!  I’ve loved their coffee for awhile, but my friend, Kourtni encouraged me to try their lunch–I don’t regret it.

11) We had a random storm this week that left the most beautiful clouds I’ve maybe ever seen.

12) Colin’s work had a desk decorating contest this week, and I helped him out by making snowflakes–don’t mess with my snowflake cutting skills!  Just kidding, but I think his desk looks pretty good, don’t you?

13) Blake had surgery this week and we got to see him while he was in the hospital!  He’s feeling good and seems to be recovering really well.  Yay!

This weekend I have my last wedding of 2014!  Between that and last minute shopping, I’ll be pretty tired and ready for the break that is Christmas I’m sure :)

His Truly,

Mary O.

I’m learning that one of the biggest blessings God has given us, is that we’re only asked to live our lives one moment at a time.  For that reason I don’t have to worry about the future or spiral into a “what-if” pile of anxiety.  Man, what a lovely truth.

1-3) A foggy day at Hoboken.  That place is magical (I’m forever indebted to Bethany and Brian for exposing me to it), and it’s even better when it’s rainy or foggy outside.  Hence, 2 photos of my biscotti and coffee….sorry I’m not sorry about that :)

4) This guy :) he went to Anthropologie with me to do some Christmas shopping, and I felt the need to snap this photo of him when we left–do I need a reason?

5) My city is pretty.

6) We finally got to try out Katiebugs hot chocolate and apple cider!  We loved their sno cones in the summer, so it was really fun to try their organic, home made winter yummies!  Steph was really excited about hers, so I took this photo of her.

7) Our Christmas decorations are up!  It’s a good thing I leave them up until New Years…or it would only be 2 weeks of enjoyment for us.

8) This is a photo of our toast from my Bible study Christmas party this week!  I just love those ladies.

9) Quiet winter mornings are really the best.  Oatmeal, coffee, blankets, and the Bible…that’s all I really need to say.

This weekend, Colin and I are celebrating our 9 year dating anniversary, and we have a few Christmas celebrations too!  I hope your weekend is just as enjoyable!

His Truly,

Mary O.

Friendsgiving 2014

So I’m finally getting around to talking about Friendsgiving this year!  I wasn’t great about keeping my camera around…as in I left it inside after my lovely friend, Kourtni, snapped these few photos with it, so hopefully next year will be better in that department (#bloggerfail)!  Regardless though, I think you’ll enjoy this peek at our special event.  Let’s start with the invitation, shall we?  This photo was taken by me, while my friend, Kourtni (yes, the same one I just mentioned), snapped the rest of these!


It was very similar to our invitations from last year!  The decorations were taken up a notch though, because we went from having 22 people last year, to 63 people this year.  I know, we’re crazy.  It was so fun though!  Check out our backyard set up:


We made Friendsgiving a fundraising event this year, and it was amazing to see all of our friends come together and give to a good cause.  I’m already looking forward to next year’s Friendsgiving celebration, but in the meantime, we’ll continue to use our decorated backyard for things like two-stepping parties…one of which I’ve shared photos of below!


Sometimes we dance like hip-hop champs instead of two-stepping…


And of course we all need a little more fireside coffee in our lives, right?  Right.  Thanks for re-living Friendsgiving 2014 with me!  For more photos, you can check out the hashtag #OKCFriendsgiving on Instagram!

His Truly,

Mary O.

“The heart of hospitality is creating space for these moments, protecting that fragile bubble of vulnerability and truth and love.  It’s all too rare that we tell the people we love exactly why we love them–what they bring to our lives, why our lives are richer because they’re in it.”–Shauna Niequist Bread & Wine

1) Our third round of Thanksgiving was spent with my extended family, and it was lovely!  We basically watched Christmas movies, played board games, and ate tortilla soup all day.  Yes.

2) While we were in Tulsa, Colin and I stopped for lunch at Dilly Deli, and we happily discovered that they were still serving brunch!  I couldn’t recommend this place more, it was so delicious, charming, and affordable.

3) I laugh every time I see this photo!  Colin was telling a story the other day, and Brian decided to act out the story with gingerbread men cookies.  It was hilarious!

4) I got to go to the Ben Rector concert with these lovelies earlier this week!  It was basically an acoustic concert, which I loved since Ben Rector is insanely talented–it really allowed us to see that (not that I didn’t think that before!).  Thanks again for taking me, Kourtni!

5) I had a serious purple theme going on in yoga training this week.  Also, I love SmartWool socks!

6) I decorated for Christmas, which of course means vintage post cards and mistletoe ;)

Oh!  And here are the winners from the giveaway this week!
