Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

To finish it off, we were given a buddy and instructed to send a package about TSL. I was a bit wary of this at first, but then I "met" my buddy and feel like we've bonded. Leslie is a girl right about my age who lives on the other side of this country. She's much more fitness oriented than I am, but we do share similar interests (Britney, a good beer, the color pink). As I started making her gift, I got more and more excited about sending her something fun, who doesn't love getting a package? I forgot to take pictures, but she posted all about it, so here is the package:
That's her dog Jackson with the frame, isn't he cute? I also added some recipes and coupons. I think she really liked it.
And in return, she sent me this awesome tea-glass. It is called Libre Tea and she did a review of it here. That's how I knew I liked it! I was super excited when I got the package in the mail. However, I was sad because I don't have any loose tea and do not know where to buy it. I thought maybe trader joes, but no. I bet stell has it. I need to check there tomorrow. Anyways, I'm putting up some of her pictures, because my pictures would be boring. This post should be titled "the one where Megan stole all of Leslie's pictures" haha
If any of you have loose leaf tea, please send it my way! I'm totally excited to try this thing out!

1) If I'm having a bad smile day (it's a real phenomenon) I will just pucker up or make a smirk. Example A:
2) Sometimes it is more fun just to make weird faces to upset the one taking the picture (heh heh) See below:
3) Sometimes I am just so dang cute when I'm making faces or drinking a cream soda...
4) Sometimes it is just plain boredom. This was taken when avoiding a paper that I had to write. Matthew is making a "who-face" in one too (but I can't find it. I also have one of the Nadalet siblings making this face, but no idea where it is)!
And then sometimes I think my face-making is a learned experience. I mean, can you see what Sarah is showing me here? (I love you girl, don't kill me for putting this up!)
In this example, I am just following my man's lead...
Or maybe it just runs in the family... (3 pictures to prove this point)
And I picked someone who encourages it?
Lastly, it could have started as a childhood game, that I never stopped playing. Or maybe my parents were just so mean and took away all my toys, that this is a learned response.
But what do I really think? I think my dad has been doing this for years and I am just a Daddy's girl following his footsteps... unfortunately all of the good pictures of him being a weirdo are on my other computer. Maybe this one will suffice:

Back to the reason for this post. Kevin and Lindsey are a couple of great friends of ours. We are actually both going to be in their wedding, as Matron of Honor and Best Man. We are quite honored to be in those positions and really excited to share this special day with them. We recently took them to my parents house for a prebuild. We have been talking about doing a SF trip for about 2 years now, so it was about time that we went! Here are some really cute pictures that I took of them at Baker Beach (where our engagement pics were) and the last one is from Lombard Street, that was Kevin's one request of our trip! Enjoy!
Just in case you forgot... this is one of our engagement photos. At the same beach as above (Joel is a much better photographer than I!)

Here is just one thing that I made:
Mmmm Stuffed not-sure-what-kind-it-is Squash! There is a mixure of ground beef and bread crumbs (cut up hamburger bun) and zucchini inside. Matt gave it a thumbs up, probably because I added Cajon Seasoning and told him about it! haha

I have been trying to play with photoshop (actually I have the free paint.net. I would say it's in between Paint! and Photoshop). Let me know which one of these you think is better...
This is the original, cropped a bit, so that it's not all out of proportion (too much sidewalk in the original pic).
Sepia toned. Gives it that old-fashioned retro look...
And "soft." It's like the original but softened up. I think I like this one the best.
What do you all think? Weigh in (Mom, Krista, & Em) in the comments! haha

Bethany never responded to my email. So I have chosen another winner.
I am too tired to take a picture of the name slip, but it is orange! haha Hopefully Ali will get back to me! Thanks everyone for wanting to win my soaps!
I wrote out all 60 names on slips of paper and drew one, that lucky person is...
She just started a blog if you want to check it out! Even if you didn't win, please keep coming back, as I hope to do more giveaways and tutorials!
She has until midnight PST on June 3 to respond, if she does not get back to me, I will draw another winner!
So, we took second place. The guys were so dejected, watching Lubbock do the dogpile on the mound, and posing with their National Championship banner.
All day I was saying, "Win or lose..." - as in "Win or lose, we're all going to go out and
