Very cute. You are so creative.

Mom said...

Woo Hoo! Thanks for the new post that reminds me how much I love you and sadly how much I miss you! Great memories, remembered with some good music, love you!

Awesome! Loved reading this. I probably could comment on about 50 of the 100 things, but that would take up too much comment space :) I'm jealous of the antique shopping in OK and your pie making skills. I made coconut cream pie this week and mine doesn't look nearly as delicious. Oh and I'm really jealous of your free flights. I guess that means you guys are going to have to come visit us in CA sometime in the future ;o) If coming to see us isn't a good enough reason, I should tell you -- we have 3 Pinkberry locations within 20 miles of us!
Haha, love you guys! Glad things are going well for you!

Holly said...

I can't believe how many things you have in common with Tim. I think that many of those same things would be on his 100 list. I MISS YOU! I wish I was a better sister and called you more!

Mom said...

Kids are in bed so I took a walk down "Memory Lane" and went back to look at and read all 100 blogs. They make me smile.

Cindy said...

What a fun post Megan!! I know you better now!!! Thanks

Mom said...

Oh, one more thing, I want a piece of that pie!

Sharon said...

Me, too! That looks just as good as everything else you've made that I've been lucky enough to eat!

Tim said...

I am impressed that you got 100 things in for this. Does Adam know about his picture?
