Friendly Competition (Win Some $$)

Men are competitive by nature. We like to play. We like a challenge. We love to win. I assume that you've noticed that players on the same sports team often become very close friends. That's because competition is one of the ways that we, as men, bond. It's instinctual.

Typically the advice that is given to couples is not to compete with each other; you are a team and you're in the game to win together.

Today, however, I challenge you to compete with each other. The goal: to see how much closer you can become as a couple.

I bet that this competition will do just that. I challenge you to prove me wrong. :)

Alright, this competition is designed to be a friendly one between husband and wife. Here's the game: do 25 nice things for your spouse as quickly as you can. It's that simple.

Here are the rules:
  1. You have to start on the same day at the same time. That way you both have a couple of days to get your game plan ready and make any preparations that may be needed.
  2. You cannot count the same nice thing more than once. Therefore sending a sweet text message would qualify as one kind thing, sending another sweet text the next day would not count toward the completion of this contest (however, it would still be a good idea).
  3. The first one to make it to twenty-five wins!
Cami and I will also be doing this and we're really looking forward to it. I know it's going to be tough to beat her because she's SO much sweeter and more thoughtful than I am, however, that's not going to stop me from trying!

Okay, now to make it even more interesting and hopefully to ensure that not only will no harm come of this but that you will love your spouse more and be a stronger team because of it let's enhance the competition a bit. 

I invite and encourage you (I DARE YOU!) to sign yourself and your spouse up to compete against Cami and me. Keep track of the twenty five kind things that you each do for each other and the time you finished the last one. Then submit the lists to me. The first three couples to successfully complete the challenge will win a prize (and it's going to be a good one!). We'll start on Monday, October 7th at 9:00am EDT.

I will announce the prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place along with more detailed guidelines for the competition on Tuesday, September 24th so don't miss it!

I will post the sign up form for the competition on Friday, September 27th so be sure to check back with me. The sign up will be open for seven days.

That's right, I'm throwing down the gauntlet. I'm daring you to try to beat your spouse AND Cami and me. In fact, I triple dog dare you! Come on, don't be chicken.
