6 Signs Your Sister is Your Bff

My sister and I are pretty tight. In fact, I would consider her one of my best friends. Having a sister is pretty much the best thing on the planet because you have a built in best friend. Here are 6 signs your sister is your BFF fo life.

 

  1. You can raid each other’s closets: Hey, double the clothes double the fun! I always catch my sister raiding my closet, and she always catches me raiding hers. No shame in that!FullSizeRender (13)
  2. She is your built in best friend: Because you guys have been together since birth, may have shared a room at one point, and have lived in the same vicinity for as long as you remember, you have a built in BFF! She goes on all of your vacations, to all of your sporting events and performances, and has been your lifelong partner in crime.
  3. She will “courtesy like” your facebook status: Even when the post makes no sense or the picture isn’t quite on fleek, your sister will like everything you post on social media. It comes with the job description.
  4. You suffer through boring events together: Whether it is your cousin’s graduation ceremony or your mom’s cousin’s daughter’s wedding reception, she is there to entertain you through every boring situation and then will laugh about it with you later.
  5. She gives great compliments/advice/criticisms: She will tell you if you look fat in that dress. No sugar coating needed.
  6. She is your biggest cheerleader: New job? New boyfriend? Celebrate!

 

These are just a few signs that your sis is your home squeeze. I know I would be totally lost without my sister. She is the peanut butter to my jelly. What are some signs that YOUR sister is your bff?

XOXO, Chels

3 Sister Struggles Solved!

Being a sibling, let alone a sister, can be tough! Always bickering over who has to take out the trash or who has to clean the dishes. Although it’s great having a sister, we can often find things to fight about (which I think anyone who has a sister can understand!). There are three big struggles every pair of sisters argues over (I know this from personal experience), and I’m here to help!

  1. Sharing clothes… the great debate. Nine times out of ten, this is what my sister and I are arguing over! She steals my shirt, I forget to put hers back, she spills her drink on my new dress… the list goes on and on. To avoid this, simply ask for permission a couple hours before you get ready. Also, put a reminder on your iPhone to put back her shirt/dress around the time you’ll be getting home. And if you have the misfortune of spilling something on her new favorite skirt, offer to buy her a new one!
  2. My sister has her license now, but before that I had to drive her everywhere! I really didn’t mind but there were a few times that brought up some conflict. The best way to go about this is asking your sis a day or so before if she has plans and needs to arrange a ride. That way she’ll know early enough so if you can’t, she’ll have plenty of time to find an alternate!
  3. Lastly, chores often bring up some bickering between us! You might ask your sister to do the dishes for you one night and all kind of problems come up! The easiest way to go about this is making a schedule for the two of you. It might sound cliché but it really works!

Good luck insiders! – Chelsea

Hi Insiders,

            Being a teenager can be tough.  Between school, hanging out with friends, sports, and work, there’s hardly any time to spend with your parents.  A quick “hi” and “bye” is the typical conversation these days.  As you all know, I really love my family.  If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing now!  They’ve always been there for me and encouraged me to follow my dreams.  You may not always realize it, but your parents love you so much!  Here are a few ideas to show your parents you appreciate them as much as you do.Chelsea Crockett- family life

  • Always tell them you love them before you leave the house and before you go to sleep.  A simple “I love you” can go a long way.
  • Invite them to different school functions you’re attending.  Whether it be a football game or tennis match, it’ll show your parents that you enjoy being around them.
  • Talk to them!  Don’t be afraid to open up.  They are your support system.  This will create a stronger bond.
  • Write them a card.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell someone exactly how you feel face to face, so write out a nice letter to show your appreciation.  It doesn’t have to be a birthday or holiday for someone to receive a card!
  • Set aside at least  one night a week for a family dinner.  It’s a great way to sit down and spend time with your parents.

I encourage all of you to spend more time with your family.  They will always be there for you!  “Honor your father and mother.  Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12

Love,
