    Smile Oklahoma peeps, help!

    Advertisements
    So, DB is a little homesick. He's been stationed here in Washington for 6 months now. We've now started our fall weather which is basically 50 degree rainy overcast weather. He's from Oklahoma. I swear, he's been complaining about the weather a lot. So, I decided that I need to do something for him that would help him with being here and to still feel like home is not that far away.

    But I don't know what to do! I know nothing about Oklahoma.

    Help me!! Haha what is something, even simple and silly, that I can give to him to make him feel better that just SCREAMS Oklahoma???

    K tia!!

    This is my favorite store for Oklahoma stuff. They have some really awesome Oklahoma themed t-shirts. Maybe you could order him one?

    Thanks for the suggestions. hmmmm he doesn't care for sports, so the sooner thing wouldn't work. And tshirts hmmm maybe that skull one. I dunno. I'm just wanting him to feel like he can belong here, yknow? OK is good, that's home. But I'm here, don't worry....yeah. *sigh* I dunno. Still lost. And I'm probably not making sense.

    You could cook him one of his favorite foods from home, maybe something his mom used to make?

    Chicken and dumplins, buscuits and gravy, chicken fried steak?? Something southern...comfort food.

    Just some things that Oklahoma is known for.

    Frito Chili Pie!!!~
    Oktoberfest (Tulsa has one of the largest in the world)
    Oil Boom
    State Fairs
    Rich Native American Culture
    Ranches & Rodeos
    Country Music
    Twangy Accents
    Crazy Weather
    College Football
    "Oklahoma!" Musical

    Just some ideas... not sure what he likes. You could always make a collage of all things Oklahoma.
    The stars lean down to kiss you, And I lie awake I miss you,
    Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere. Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly,
    But I'll miss your arms around me I'll send a postcard to you dear,
    Cause I wish you were here.

    I watch the night turn light blue, But it's not the same without you,
    Because it takes two to whisper quietly, The silence isn't so bad,
    Till I look at my hands and feel sad, Cause the spaces between my fingers
    Are right where yours fit perfectly.

    Lol, well I've lived here now for 18 years and this is home, sweet home.

    I'm also thinking of Bricktown, Route 66, QuikTrips (if he's from the Tulsa area), and etc.
