Mini Adventures: Let’s Be Homebodies

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Before Christmas, our sweet friend, Kourtni, took some cozy photos of Colin and me in our home.  It was the perfect way to force us to slow down, make some coffee, snuggle with Bozeman, and bake some cookies in the midst of our busy schedule!  Oh, and it forced us to clean our house….I know right, what a surprise that it’s not always clean haha



Thanks, Kourtni, for capturing these photos of us!  Also, shout out to my lovely friend, Amanda, who made those Mr. and Mrs. mugs for us as a wedding gift :)

I hope your week is fantastic so far!

Friday Phone Dump

1-2) I’ve mentioned here before that attending my cousins’ musical productions is kind of a tradition for Colin and me.  This weekend we got to see Matthew in “Singin’ in the Rain” which was wonderful!  It’s so fun to see people I know and love on stage :)  We love you, Matthew!


3) While we were in Tulsa, Colin and I stopped by The Phoenix for some tea to-go.  They’ve redecorated a bit since I was last there, but I still love it!  Their counter is decorated with the spines of books….so that’s awesome.

4) Bozeman and I have been going for longer walks since we’ve had such nice weather!  We love this pretty spot in particular as a resting point before going back home.

5) This is Lydia!  I couldn’t get a great photo of her since she was so wiggly, but we got to go to her 4th birthday party this weekend!  It was My Little Pony themed, and we had fun helping her play with all her new toys.


6) A very generous (and anonymous) person gifted my women’s LifeGroup tickets to the Bethel Worship Night at the Civic Center this week!  It was fun, and we got to take a photo with the pastor that emcee’d for the night!

7) Some days it’s hard to get out of bed–but the promise of pretty, light-filled rooms in my house makes it a little easier :)

8) I’ve recently developed allergies to most fruits and some vegetables, which has made eating healthy pretty difficult.  There’s nothing I love more than a plate exploding with colors and flavors!  I still have a few raw things I can eat (mostly bell peppers, avocados, and leafy greens) though, so this was my happy attempt to have a colorful lunch.

This weekend we are planning for our Europe trip, and then planning, and planning some more!  We already booked places to stay in London and Paris, but we still need apartments in Florence and Venice!  It’s a good thing this is fun, because it’s alot of work haha

I hope something wonderful happens to you this weekend!

Styled Bridals: Lace and Plum

Once upon a time I went to the top of a mountain and took photos that I styled of my beautiful friend, Maddy while snow swirled around us.

Yep, that seems like a good enough statement to start with on this post.  I’m still a bit dumbfounded that I got to do this–styled shoots are so inspiring to me, and this one in particular feels like a springboard to what I want to do more of in the future of my creative life!

I love the contrast in colors and vibes in this styled look.  I knew I wanted Maddy to wear all ivory and gold with pops of plum, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!  Also, Maddy, you are stunning…really.

ps–It was cold on that mountain, but we had so much fun :)

Friday Phone Dump

“That house was, as Bilbo had long ago reported, ‘a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.’  Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear, and sadness.”

–J.R.R. Tolkien; The Lord of the Rings

1-9) I got to spend the weekend at a beautiful house on Grand Lake with the ladies I serve with on the Changed Leadership team!  We had lots of fun laughing and relaxing and planning our next retreat (April 21st-24th).  We missed Angela though, so we brought a “flat Angela” with us the whole weekend!  You can see her sitting next to me as we went over our personality test results–her and I are the only introverts in the group, so we have to stick together!

10) On our way back from the retreat, we stopped at Shades of Brown in Tulsa.  It was lovely to go back there, I only wish I could have lingered for awhile!  I love that space.

11) I think it’s safe to say that this is my new favorite mug.  I had a feeling it might be when I bought it, but I think we can confirm that now!  Anyways, Mondays call for favorite mugs.

12-13) I’ve been so inspired lately about the lovely moments of light that seem to happen best in the winter.  There’s something about living in scarcity that brings out the small things that are beautiful.  Spring and Summer and Fall all seem so extravagantly gorgeous with their green and flowers and colors–there’s fresh life and light everywhere.  Winter lacks those things, but one this it has never felt short of to me is good light.  I know the days are shorter, so technically there is less light in the Winter, but again I think that’s part of what makes me appreciate the pretty light when it’s there.  And I seem to be able to find it almost every day :)


14) As I mentioned last week, we are rapidly planning for our upcoming trip to Europe!  We will be in London, Paris, Florence, and Venice–so let us know if you have any must-see items we should add to our lists!

This weekend is packed with a photo shoot, my cousin’s musical, catching up with old friends, a birthday party, and the usual church stuff.  I hope your weekend is fantastic!

His Truly,

Mary O.

Friday Phone Dump

“I think one of my favorite feelings is laughing with someone and realizing halfway through how much you enjoy them and their existence”

1) Since Maddy has gotten her “big kid” job, we haven’t been able to meet quite as often.  It’s a little sad, but it definitely makes me appreciate our coffee time so much more :)

2) Bozeman enjoying a cozy moment on a chilly day: featuring our bathroom tile haha


3) I got to spend some time with my friend, Kourtni, and her twin sister, Kaela this week!  As a bonus, our puppies got to play tug-of-war, and Bozeman was so tired for the rest of the day, we didn’t even take him for a walk.  The photo above was taken by Kourtni  :)

4) Oh my gosh, I never ever ever take selfies, but I wanted to document my new haircut that my dear friend gave me this week!  So there you go, internet, a selfie from me just for you.

5) I was “office-ing” from Cuppies yesterday, and I also got to spend some time planning for our upcoming trip to Europe (in just 5 weeks!).  It was so fun to explore different restaurants online to make some decisions on where we definitely want to visit while we’re there.  I can’t wait!

Guys, I edited these photos with my new favorite app, A Color Story, which was released by my favorite bloggers this week!  I’ve always been drawn to bright colors in photographs (despite my true love for earth tones), and this app makes colors pop and brings out the life in my photos.  I love it so much :)

This weekend I have a small retreat that should be really relaxing…I’m just hoping there’s a fireplace!  I hope your weekend is cozy, relaxing, and productive.

His Truly,

Mary O.
