We're officially OKIE!

We got our Oklahoma driver's licenses today. It was kind of weird...we decided to go to the DMV nearest my work since I like it be in a 8 am. So we found one and yay! It opened at 7 am. So we got their early and waited a short while for them to call our numbers. We go through the process...2 forms of ID? CHECK. Vision test? CHECK. Fingerprints? CHECK. Photo? CHECK. Signature? CHECK. They print out a form and stamp it with an official looking stamp. So we think we are all done and are ready to pay the fee and await the arrival of our new DL Cards in the mail in 7-10 days, yada, yada.
Nada, nada! They do it "differntly" here in Oklahoma, OK! We had to take said offically stamped and signed document to the "Tag Office". They have them all over and they are the offices that you can get your DL, your boating liscense and new liscence plates for everything from a Harley to a House on Wheels. Just our luck, there was one right across the street. Oh joy! Oh wait! They don't open until 8 am.

So 45 minutes later, the doors opened and we were the first inside. More official forms, a check for $56.00, another photo, finger prints and signature. Presto magic! Out comes a new Oklahoma DL....right then and there. Hey! At least that beats the 7-10 day snail mail wait. So yeah...long story short...we are now card carrying okies. We even had to hand over our CA DLs! So...it's officially offical. And officiously official. Next? Gotta git new plates...and wouldn't you know that this grand state offers over 100 special, customized plates....

Isn't that a little wacky?

We're actually leaning towards these personalized plates in colors that coordinate with our cars.


"Chamois" for our gold CRV.

And "Gray" for our silver Accord.


Although, I personally like the color of the "Sea Green" one:




What do you think? Which ones should we get? Oh the decisions. Who knew that Oklahomans like to express their individuality this way? Guess we've got to get on board!

Hi it's Mommy, I'm partial to the matching plates. What will you put on them?

I'm in Tracy spending the night...the kids are starting their riding lessons tomorrow.
