After the scorching summer Oklahoma's had, many are welcoming this fall season with open arms. Who doesn't love autumn? Snuggly sweaters come out, pumpkin spiced everything hits the shelves, and there’s a little sport called football that captivates Okies - whether they’re wearing crimson and cream or orange and black.
Because time has a tendency to sneak up on us, it's possible to miss the things that make fall so special. Well not on our watch! Here are 5 tips to help you prep for the best things this season has to offer.
#1 Flu Shot
No, it’s not a football play. Flu shot was listed first for a reason. If you’re stuck at home with the flu it’s game over, no matter how much fun you have scheduled. Give our office a call and set up an appointment. You’ll thank us later.
#2 Nature Calls
The foliage in Oklahoma is stunning and with the cool, crisp weather it’s the perfect time for outside activities. Instead of meeting friends at a coffee shop, grab one to go and catch up beside a breathtaking backdrop. Got 1/2 a day? You won’t regret cruising Talimena Drive for the full experience. We prescribe windows down, music up.
For photographers at any level - this is the perfect season to capture Oklahoma’s beauty!
#3 Football Food Game Plan
Football watch parties can be a huge trigger for those watching their waistline. Plan ahead and bring clean, healthy snacks that won't make you feel deprived. Buddy systems are ideal. Make a pact with your like-minded friends to hold each other accountable. Here's a whole article on the topic.
#4 Halloween Costume Prep
Whether the costume is for you or your kids - don’t be "that guy" this year. You know Halloween is coming and it’s always a pain to driving to McAlester the night before a party to find whatever’s left on the costume rack. Does it fit? Never. Is it what you really wanted? Not quite. ---------------------->>>>>>>>>>>>
Start collecting pieces for your costume now. It’ll be cheaper, easier, and you’ll feel excited knowing that your prefect choice is in the closet - teed up for fun!
#5 Get Seasonal
