30 Aug

With two days left before September, I am trying to wrap my brain around the fact that for the next month every weekend is already booked and when September has come and gone it will be the “Holiday Season” with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and then New Years. Damn.

But I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. September is a great month for many different reasons and they are:

1. Labor Day Weekend. The Rocky Mountain Showdown. Need I say more? To explain why this is such a big deal is because my house is divided. I went to CU and Dan went to CSU (Poor Dan). Since before we were even a couple, our second date was the CU vs CSU game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. My mom scored us some pretty sweet seats, even though they were in the CSU section, but I think this is why Dan didn’t turn down my offer to come with me. We made a pact that whoever won that game we would sit in that section the following year, and every year since, we have managed to keep that pact alive. If you know me, I am not an all-day-drinker kind of girl… but, other than St. Patty’s day, this is the one other day out of the year where we wake up and start with mimosas, and go all day long. Hard. So, like I said- need I say more?

2. Dan & My anniversary is September 18. And this year will be our three year mark. I love him so much, and couldn’t have imagined the past three years without him.  I’ll keep this part short, because I don’t want to get all mushy and lovey dovey, but I still have a crush on this guy, and Dan- we make a great team and I cannot wait to see what our future holds.

3. Dan’s birthday. We are getting closer and closer to 30 every year which is so crazy to think about, but I always have such a fun time surprising him with gifts, and spoiling him for a change.

Those are the three consistent September events and this year we threw in our first team competition together. You didn’t think I could write a post without mentioning CrossFit did you? I didn’t think so. On September 8 Dan and I will be a team, competing in the Cops Fighting Cancer Charity CrossFit Competition held at CrossFit 6th Avenue. This event is to raise money for Colorado’s cancer patients and their families and other than competing, there are other ways to donate. If you are interested, click on the link below, and thank you in advance. With this being our first competition together, I am bit nervous- but I know it will be fun and a great experience. Wish us luck!!

I hope you enjoy your Labor Day weekend, and the months to come. Before we know it, it will be 2014.
