So my little sister is next up on the family album showcase. She just turned ten but wants to be 20. Slow down little one! I don't exactly know when this all happened...but it seems like I blinked and she turned into a lip gloss wearing little princess that wanted to know when she could wear deoderant! She's growing up faster than I can believe. She is so bright and talented - not to mention a little sassy - which she inherited from our mother. She keeps Brian and me laughing with her funny little wordings and Bella-isms. For her birthday I asked her what she wanted to do. A day for just sisters to celebrate. She chose a museum, the mall and the movies...and so went our Sunday. We first headed to the Crocker to check out the new Pop Art exhibit...a very good exhibit I might add...but as Bella informed me...there was one inappropriate piece in the show according to her! After the museum we hit the mall and picked out a new outfit from head to toe for our birthday shoot. I think we did a super cute job on the ensemble! And no photoshoot is complete without a little pampering - so we hit up the Benefit counter at Macy's for a special little makeover for the shoot. (Dad was not too pleased with the makeup part...but I thought it looked fabulous...yet understated!) We headed back to my place for a quick transformation on the hair and then we hit the streets of downtown. She did a stunning job working the camera...don't you think?! I had so much fun with her running around finding cute spots to shoot...and I think she came out so adorable. We ended our night by picking up our mom and heading to the drive-in movies. If you haven't done this in a while...you should definitely go before it starts to get cold. I absolutely love seeing movies this way. I know the sound is not perfect and the screens are a little off...but it's so fun to just bring a bunch of pillows, blankets, your favorite comfort food (and the dog too!) and watch a movie that way. Anyway - that was our day and this is my little sister, Bella. Enjoy!
