Being the only girl in a family of boys is a very interesting, yet fun dynamic to grow up in. There are things you do and go through on a daily basis without even realizing it is because you are the only girl.

1. Mom likes shopping for you the best

Probably the biggest perk!! It gets so old shopping for sweatpants and new gym shoes for sons, but when a daughter wants to go shopping and browse all the cute clothes, Mom's enjoy doing it. There's a better chance you'll get random clothing items or cute décor from your mom that caught her eye while she was shopping for herself.

2. You are tougher and stronger than most of your friends

Of course, you and your brothers love eachother but fights happen within siblings no matter what. If you grew up with only brothers, fights were not only screaming matches but tended to become physical more often than not. Eventually, girls have to learn how to stand their own ground. You are your moms go to for all girly events

Whether it be a shopping trip, nail appointmentor spa day, no one wants to go alone. If you're the only girl you have no sisters to compete against to go with mom. There's nothing better than your parent asking you if you want to tag along on a pamper day!

3. You tended to play more physical sports growing up

Growing up with all boys, whenever you played with them it would always be sports they enjoyed. You never choreographed a dance with them or watched princess movies. Throughout the years, you would learn to love the sports you always played with your brothers. As you grew up, you would join basketball or soccer teams over cheer or dance because its what you know best.

4. Your Dad treated you like a son

Growing up with only brothers, you have to learn to not be too sensitive. Your dad treated you like one of the boys, because it is what he was used to. You went to more major leauge sporting events than most of your friends, because it is what most of your family loved to do, and you came to love it just as much as them.

5. You love every second of it

Everyone's childhood is unique and growing up with only boys makes it even better. You learn to laugh at your mistakes and joke around with their sense of humor.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

A Letter To My Military Brothers

As much as we bicker and argue, thank you, for all that you do.
234

With Memorial Day right around the corner, I just wanted to send the utmost respect for those fighting for our country, including my brothers.

I have four brothers, three of which have served or are currently serving in the United States Military. All of which I am so grateful for what they have done and continue to do for our country.

I guess this article is to really to say thank you to my brothers, and also a "you suck" for making me miss you guys so much.

To be honest, I never would've guessed that you three would enlist, mostly because you all are my brothers. Also, maybe because Mom could never bear the sight of you guys of leaving. I always expected you guys just to go to college, get a job, find a nice girl, then I would finally be the cool aunt. Well, that didn't happen. Number one, I'm still waiting to be a cool aunt, I'm not getting any younger here!

As a kid, you guys annoyed me like crazy, stealing my stuffed animal (her name was Angel), marking X's over my Jonas Brothers posters, or "forgetting" to pick me up from school, yeah I'm talking about you Marshall. We've been through so many ups and downs, but seriously, all three of you are my best friends, whether you boys agree or not.

We are older now and I have looked up to you countless times. I know that you guys will always have my back because let's face it, I will always have yours. I missed you guys a lot, not talking every day, y'all buying me food, or laying on the couch in the game room watching movies. With two of you going overseas, missing Christmas and Thanksgiving it just didn't feel like it used to. Our home wasn't the same, but that's okay because I knew it was the right choice.

I know that I annoyed you all right back, but that is what a little sister is supposed to do. Hopefully, you guys look back on how much fun we had as kids, even if I did happen to tattle tale once or twice (or many times) on you.

Basically, what I am getting at, is how happy I am with the way your life has gone and how thankful I am to have you boys as my brothers. Although you three joining the military was something I never expected, I am truly grateful for all that you do for me and for everyone else in this country.

To all of those little sisters with brothers in the military, you don't realize how lucky you are. You have a brother who not only will do anything for you no matter the circumstance AND is in one of the most honorable jobs and experiences that one can have.

I love you guys lots, ya know. Thanks for being the best big brothers around.

Love,

your favorite and ONLY sister.
