8 Reasons Being Best Friends With Your Brother's Girlfriend Is The Best

8 Reasons Being Best Friends With Your Brother's Girlfriend Is The Best

5. You don't have to pretend to like them.

I have been blessed to have had brother's who are kind and caring and loving and amazing boys. Because of this, they attract awesome girlfriends. Currently, all three of my brothers are dating (I am dating too so no, I am NOT a seventh wheel).

I am so grateful that their girlfriends are genuine people and get along with me so well. When my two younger brothers brought these two girls came into my life I gained some really great friendships and now, even consider them two of my best friends.

Here are 8 reasons why being best friends with them is amazing:

1. They are literally always around.

I don't ever have to text them to hang out a whole lot because they are literally always at my house all the time. Girls day every day.

2. You get along perfectly.

If you are dating my brother and he REALLY likes you, then chances are we are going to get along just fine. I instantly hit it off with them and it is so easy to talk to and hang out with them.

3. If something that your brother does annoys them, they can talk to you because chances are it probably annoys you too.

We can share in the little quirks my brothers have and can relate to each other when they are frustrating any of us.

4. They are like your sisters.

They have met most of the family that has ever come to visit and they are always in my house. Having grown up with no sisters, it is nice to have the extra females in the house for family dinners or movie nights.

5. You don't have to pretend to like them.

There is nothing worse than meeting someone you know is going to be around a lot and not actually enjoying their presence - trust me, I have been there before. It was such a relief to realize that I actually enjoyed hanging out with them knowing they were going to be around me constantly.

6. The group dates are so much fun.

When I am home, and my boyfriend is as well, we can all go on dates together. Whether that is out to dinner, a movie, or just staying at the house all day everyone gets along and it is always a good time.

7. You don't even mind being a fifth or seventh wheel.

Even though I am in a relationship, my boyfriend is not always around (long distance...), but that never bothers me. I am always included and yeah, it'd be so amazing to have my boyfriend there as well, I still have a blast with them.

8. You know they always will be your best friends.

No matter what happens in the relationships, you know you guys will always stay strong and be there for each other, no matter what.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

What Do You Do When Tragedy Strikes Your Former Home?

In my desperate attempt to figure this out, I'm writing about it.


On November 8th, I woke up with a voicemail from my mom. It went a little like this,

"Hey, it's Momma. I'm sorry it's really early your time, but I wanted to have you hear from me before you got the news on. There was a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks last night at a country bar about ten minutes from where our house was in Moorpark. There are 12 people dead, the shooter is dead, and a cop. It was college night at the bar, so anyone over 18 could go in. There were students from multiple colleges there, that's all they know so far. It's just horrible." And so on. I made it about halfway through the voicemail before I pulled out my laptop.

A thousand thoughts ran through my mind. This is what is referred to as one of the safest towns in America. This town was a short drive away from my home in Moorpark. These people are mostly my age. Then, the worst one occurred to me. What if when they display the victims' pictures, I recognize a face?

According to USAToday, the Thousand Oaks shooting is the 307th shooting on the 311th day of 2018. Are we supposed to allow ourselves to be desensitized to this gun violence? I sure hope not. I'll save you the agony of listening to how the rest of my day went. Long story short, I watched the news and cried more than I'd like to admit.

As the day carried on, I watched the pictures come up on my computer screen. I scrolled through social media and looked at my friend's posts of their friends being safe. Somehow, that did not calm me down. I watched the victim's faces pop up one by one on my laptop, and I listened to the stories.

All country music lovers, all college students, all heroes who helped save the lives of others before they lost their own. It was not until Friday that I realized I did recognize one of the faces. I logged onto my Facebook to get rid of a notification, and there it was. A picture of my childhood swim coaches, and Noel Sparks. Now, I understand that it's been years, but that doesn't make it any better. Each victim of the shooting had so much more life to be lived, and my heart breaks for each one of them. I send all of my love to the family, friends, and everyone affected by the Borderline shooting.

Not even a day later, there was news of a fire that is rapidly spreading. According to CBS News, The Woolsey fire has burned 98,362 acres of land and is only about 57% contained. While this fire has only 3 confirmed fatalities, the second fire that is burning in California has taken the lives of 56 people and burned 140,000 acres of land. I can spit out as many facts as my fingers can research, but it doesn't change the fact that my heart aches for my former home. When all of this tragedy happens and I'm 1,835 miles away, I have never felt so helpless. I donated to the victim's families, but I have not found a way to make sense of this in my mind. Why do these things happen? There's no concrete answer to this question, so am I going to wonder it forever?
