Some girls dream of growing up to become a "beauty queen." Some girls dream of growing to become a "mommy." For Wendi Russo....both came true. Wendi Russo who you may be familiar with as the on air host for ShopNBC, has been competing in pageants for the past few years and is currently a Mrs. Minnesota titleholder for a Mrs. pageant organization. So, it was no wonder that her daughter, Chloe would want to follow in mommy's footsteps!
Chloe, whose a spunky tot, choose the National American Miss Minnesota pageant as her first pageant experience, and captured the judges hearts by taking home the title of 2011 Miss MInnesota Princess.
Now Mom and Daughter are having a year of a lifetime, both traveling and making appearances together - becoming the ulitmate faces for mommy and me organizations and giving back across the country changing lives of girls of ALL ages!
