August 2 is National Sisters Day and if you have a sister, you know it’s a day to celebrate. It lands on the down-slide of summer — making it a great time to spend a weekend with your sister and reclaim your bonding time. In honor of National Sisters Day and summer, here are a few ideas for spending time with your sister.
Shopping Partner Just about the only person worth shopping with is your sister. Who better to tell you what looks good on you and what doesn’t than your sister? When you’re shopping with your sister, she keeps you on the straight and narrow (you do the same for her, of course). You can rely on your sister to steer you away from the orange puffy blouse that is just the right shade of ugly-on-you and turn you toward the subtle green cover-up that magically complements your skin tone, appears to take ten pounds off your body and twenty years off your face.
Workout Partner Your sister is the great motivator. A yoga class, run around the lake or a climbing wall, getting moving with your sister isn’t like having a regular workout partner. There’s no self-consciousness, only self-improvement. You can push your limits and be fearless without judgment. Those weaknesses you don’t like other people to know about don’t hold you back with your sister. So what if you can’t run an 8-minute mile? Your sister doesn’t care how fast you run, she only cares about you. You’ll get more out of your workout and your relationship with your sister.
Aria Ally A good night out is only complete with a song session at a karaoke bar. With your sister, you can get silly, be weird and totally ridiculous in the most cathartic of ways. Belting out a few ballads with the one you truly love unconditionally is relaxing, liberating and necessary.
Road Trip What better way to spend time with your sister than experiencing a new place together and getting there on wheels? Car games, pit stops, roadside attractions — it doesn’t matter where you go, you have each other and that’s all you need for any journey.
Backyard Camping Trip Take a trip back to your childhood in the backyard! Pitch a tent, roast marshmallows and tell ghost stories. Sleeping under the stars and spending time with your sister are things you cannot do too much of. You won’t be too far from civilization, it takes little-to-no planning and you can take advantage of summer weather — all with the comfort of your sister.
