Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday was my first official day of summer and it was also my 29th birthday!  I can't believe that I'm in the last year of my 20s.  M took the day off so that he could spend my birthday with me and Evie.  Another highlight was my sister and her husband (and their two giganto dogs) stayed at our house on Thursday night.  The live in Iowa right now, but they are hoping to move back to Wisconsin this summer sometime.  Thursday evening, my sister babysat so that M and I could go out for dinner.  I think that she and Evie really enjoyed themselves.  She got to feed Evie some kiwi, and some purees as well.  I think she was surprised by the mess!

M gave me my birthday present before we went to bed on Thursday night.  He got me two books that I'm really looking forward to reading: Bossypants by Tina Fey, and The Tudors by  G.J. Meyer.  I love Tina Fey, and I recently DVRed all of "The Tudors" reruns on BBC America and I'm really into learning more about the time period. 

Friday morning, my sister, M, Evie, and I went out for breakfast while my brother-in-law was at a job interview.  After breakfast, my sister left to drive up to my parent's (about 2 1/2 hours from here), and then I went to get my hair done.  I made the appointment a couple of weeks ago thinking that I could use a change when I turned 29.  The pictures below don't really do it justice.  My hair was actually much longer than the before picture looks, and the color is now MUCH lighter.  It's a pretty big change, but it will be a good summer 'do.
This is the best before pic that I could find.

Overall it was a great birthday!!  I'm looking forward to whatever "29" has in store for me!!
