“Yesterday my bad ass and beautiful sister was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel,” Janel captioned a slideshow of images. “She has served in the US Army for 16 years. I couldn’t be there for her promotion 😔 So I FaceTimed in to watch my family pin her rank as she took her oath. I am so proud of my amazing sister.”

“Here are some bad quality photos of me screaming/crying with joy while watching her get promoted ❤️,” she added.

The first photo shows her sister smiling in her uniform, the second shows Melissa taking her oath as Janel screams with happiness, and the third features Melissa getting a hug as Janel flashes a huge grin.

The ceremony took place in Tacoma, Wash., and Janel has been filming The Perfectionists in Portland, Ore.

We caught up with Janel to discuss everything she’s up to lately. Check out the interview below, as well as a gorgeous photo spread shot and glammed by Glenn Nutley from Hello Darling Salon.

You’ve been in everything lately. How lucky do you feel right now?

Well that’s nice of you to say! I feel very grateful for work. It’s what I love to do, and each time I work on something new, I feel myself learning and growing more as an actress and person. Grateful is definitely the word.

Happy Birthday, too! What did you do to celebrate?

Thank you! My husband and sister came in for the day. We had a table read in Portland, and my PLL family surprised me with a cake. Spent the rest of the day with my sis and hubby, enjoying the city, and Sasha Pieterse and her husband Hudson joined us for pool later. It was perfect!

You’re currently in Portland, working on The Perfectionists. How does it feel to finally be back in Mona’s shoes? Familiar or different?

Both. I slip back into her shoes so easily after 7 years, I feel like I know her so well. However, she is a little evolving. And that is something I love about Mona and our wonderful writers…they also keep me on my toes as an actress. Portland is an amazing city, and I’m so happy to be back in the PLL world, but with new stories and faces.
