I live in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, this is pics of a bug we are finding in our home. I have lived here most of my life, and have never seen one, looking forward to hearing what it is. It is early Autumn here, November.

Your creature is a Northern Two Striped Walkingstick, which is a somewhat ironic name since it seems BugGuide only reports it south of the Mason-Dixon Line. According to the BugGuide genus page: “Members of this genus can deliver a chemical spray to the eyes that can cause corneal damage.“
