There's no one in the world that can take the place of your sister. The one person in the world who knows just how to push your buttons while playing off the fact that you're bound together by the power of family. While you may want to rip each other's hair out most of the time, at the end of the day, you know you'll always have each other's back. And there is no one else who you'd rather steal your stuff and pretend they don't know what you're talking about when you're looking for it.
Whenever you're feeling a little less on the "I wish I was an only child" side and a little more on the "Holy crap, I have the best sister in the world" side - you should probably savor the moment and do a little sister-bonding. Try one of these super cute activities and use this time to complain about boys, talk about your celeb crushes and thank each other for all the times you covered for each other to your parents... (or try to refrain from scolding them for every time they threw you under the bus... good vibes!)
Regardless, sister-bonding is super important and it's always best to do it in the most fun and adventurous ways. Take your sister on one of these 9 adorable adventures and be your own #sistergoals.
Enjoy a sister spa day a RnR Wellness: The Spa
Located in the Fairmont Palliser Hotel, RnR Wellness is the perfect place to unwind and be pampered with your favorite person in the world. Maybe a nice massage and facial is just what the both of you need to bring you closer together (as if you aren't close enough.) I wonder if couple's massages are acceptable for sisters...
Have an adorable sister photo shoot.
Do it like the Moss & Hadid Sisters! Show off those beautiful genetics and work your model magic. Especially when the only pictures you have together are from holidays and one of you is naked and the other has their eyes closed... oh and did I mention you were both under the age of 5? I'm sure you both have changed a lot since then. No longer naked, but eyes probably still closed. Don't worry, you'll take a few pics to get the right one. Book a shoot with one of Calgary's amazing photographers that'll make you look flawless in photos or grab your iPhone and selfie stick and visit some of Calgary's coolest places to take IG photos.
Challenge each other to Bumper Ball Sumo Wrestling
Probably the best and most hilarious way to relieve of any pent up frustrations you may have. What could possibly blow off the steam from the time your sister cut your hair when you were 4 better than knocking her over in a big bubble? This activity works even better for those of us with a little bit of a larger sibling selection. The more sisters, the better.
Spend a night at Hotel Clique
Spend the night at one of Calgary's most elite hotels. Sip champagne and enjoying each other's company on the rooftop hot tub at Calgary's glowing purple hotel. A little getaway is just what you'll both need to maximize your sister-time.
Go on an outdoor adventure through Johnson Lake
Not only will you get to experience the beautiful Rockies with your partner in crime, you'll also get a pretty good road trip out of it. A whole hour and a half to fight over the aux cord. The Johnson Lake hike/snowshoe is about 3 km and the most beautiful place to freeze to death and complain about how we need to do more cardio.
Have a board game battle at PIPS Board Game Cafe
Bring out your competitive side and show your sister who's boss at PIPS Board Game cafe. Not only is this an adorable place to grab a coffee and enjoy good conversation, it's also a great place to remind your sister that you are the Scrabble and Connect 4 master. Sibling rivalry at its finest.
Get matching manicures at Venetian Nail Spa
Nothing is cuter than sister nails. While agreeing on a color might be a little difficult, the end result is totally worth it. Matching nails, FTW!
Join a pottery workshop at Color Me Mine
What is more adorable than making pottery together? Getting drunk* while doing it. Have a glass of wine while making super cute clay objects at Color Me Mine. If that's not bonding, I don't know what is.
*Side note: You may or may not get kicked out for this.
Visit Adult's Night at the Telus Spark Science Centre.
Perfect for the 18+ sisters! On the second Thursday of every month, Telus Spark has an Adult's Only Night from 6 to 10 pm. With a fully licensed bar and a large selection of amazing tunes, you'll be able to get drunk in the name of science! (With good company, of course.)
