Happy Tuesday to you, friends! I have lots of goodness coming this week including a film club review post (it is coming, i swear!), an update on my NY move, and a guest post for Ms. Aubry of Practically Perfect in Every Way. Eeee! Can't wait to share all of it with you! But for now, I smell birthday cake.

Prolly because it's somebody's birthday. Somebody like this cute little fish right hurrr. 
Her name is Shannon. If you don't know it already, she's my youngest sis. And my best friend. 

Today she is 21. 21!!!! The exclamation points aren't even necessary because if you're a human being then YOU KNOW what a big deal this is. Not just for her, but for ME. I can now force the babe sis to hit up dive bars with me before I go make dumb choices (purchases) at Target. Or stalk celebrities in popular Hollywood bars and night clubs. (I don't really do this.) (Mmmkay.. I do.) Or get some good old Mimosas the morning after a long night of Mimosas. (It happens every now and then...with me.) Basically, I legally have a new wing lady. And it's my super duper awesome sister. YAY!

AND FOR THE LOVE OF CAKE! YAY for birthdays in general. Here's a little snap shot of heaven for the evening:

I die. 

In short:

You're beautiful. And I am so happy to celebrate this special day with you! 21 is going to be a great year for you. I. just. know. it.

Let's drink.

We'll be having ourselves some play time and din din in LA tonight. We're thinking Brazilian food @ Fogo De Chao. If you baby cakes are on Instagram, give my sis a follow and wish her a happy bday! @shansobel

  2. Happy Birthday Shannon! 21 is a great, great year.

    I love to celebrate the anniversary of my 21st birthday!

  3. Aww, she's so pretty!! =)

    And that cake DOES look like heaven! <3

    Xoxo, Sarah

  4. HOW CUTE! My favorite thing about turning 21 was that I could legally have yummy drinks instead of the cheap beer and liquor you have to have people buy for you when you are not 21. I love having margaritas, wine, spiked lemonade or w/e at dinner too! Life is good when you're 21! Also have fun being a celeb stalker tonight!! WOOO!

  5. I'm still waiting for my baby sister to turn 21 so she's all nice and legal!
