this was the first year that my twin sister and i weren't together for our birthday. when i realized this, i got really really sad. so... i made a jenna on a stick.
my mom and i (and jenna) went to breakfast at a cute cafe, the gingerbread house. the food was really good--- heavy and very filling.
matt got to my house in the afternoon so we spent some much needed time sitting around together.
and then... off to lake park bistro, a really nice, beautiful restaurant in milwaukee that my sister used to work at. we walked in and the hostess looked at me and said, "you must be jenna's sister." funny. :)
since everyone loves jenna at the bistro, matt and i got v.i.p. treatment, sat at the table with the best view of the lake, and took home lots of desserts. and of course, jenna on a stick came along to dinner, too! and the surprise ending was that jenna took care of our meal. :)
and then... home for more dessert (birthday funfetti cake) with my mom... lots of food... too much food...
matt stayed over and we had breakfast with my mom before i drove back to canada. :)
this birthday was really great, jam-packed with everything that i wanted to do.
i'm 25. ...this year is going to be wonderful.
