hello friends! it is officially n o v e m b e r ! I love this month so much – while we should be thankful all year round, I love that this time of year triggers grateful + giving attitudes. it’s just such a wonderful time of year to be with friends and family and make efforts to participate in fun + festive events. so, I wanted to do a roundup of fun things going around the norman/okc area that I think would be fun to attend this month! I’ve tried to include a variety of things from concerts to plays to sports to shopping to touch on a little bit of everything for everyone!
be sure to check out what kind of exhibits are going on at your local museums, or even events at restaurants/local hangouts like trivia, bingo + karaoke nights!
