And they lived happily ever after...

This morning I woke up feeling pretty ill after a horrible nights sleep.
I wanted to pop in a movie and fall asleep on the couch.
I put in the movie "The Break Up"... I hate that movie.  I mean I gathered that there would be a break up but I couldn't believe they did not get back together in the end! 

I know there are not always happy endings in life every time, but that's precisely why I want happy endings in my fiction!  I do not want Jack Dawson dying and Rose being alone in her withering old age, I do not want movies like Inception, Limitless and Source Code, where they keep you guessing at the end and don't give you a sure ending, therefore I am forced to make up the ending in my mind as a happy one.  Yes, Leo in Inception is happily back with his family in real life,  and the guy in Limitless is really off the pills and doing just fine!

So yes, when I am reading a book and become familiar enough with the characters, I turn to the end and read the ending, if it not how I want it, I stop reading the book and move onto a happy one.

Yes I stopped watching my favorite show "One Tree Hill" after season 5 because Lucas and Peyton were finally married and happy and I couldn't watch the writers give them unhappiness for dramas sake after all they had been through.

I knew Ryan and Marissa were going to break up in the third season of the OC, so I immediately stopped watching mid-episode to end that relationship happy in my mind.  In my mind Ryan and Marissa are happily married and have very skinny blonde children.

I want a happy ending,  and the very best one's are when the happy couple gets back together by the end of the movie....and then they show like a "ten years later" and they show the wedding and them having babies, even better!

I love a happy ending, these are some of my favorite...

He's Just Not That Into You-2 happy endings-Ben Affleck proposes and Jen gets her happy ending and Gigi is the exception, not the rule.
Meredith and Derek's happy ending...only took four seasons but luckily still going strong
Enchanted-"True Loves Kiss"
FINALLY!!!!  ALL is right in the world
I remember watching this when I was like 12, goosebumps all over my body when the stadium started cheering and he ran towards Drew on the pitching mound!
Vivian Ward needs love too!
You've Got Mail
Joe Fox: Don't cry, Shopgirl. Don't cry.
Kathleen Kelly: I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly.
Breathtaking!!


So sue me, I want the happy ending, every time!  So Hollywood: stop making us guess, GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!

Half a Year

On Saturday April the 9th, it was Ben and I's 6 month anniversary! 

I can hardly believe how fast it has gone by and how much fun it is!  I think the general authorities were so right telling everyone how great marriage is!  It just keeps getting better too!  All day we kept saying "6 months ago at this time we were... (fill in the blank depending on time of day)."  I suppose a small trip down memory lane is in order..











So I am on a really strict diet because all of a sudden I didn't look like I did in above pictures.. so I can't really eat out so we decided to save the fancy night and dinner until I can and just have a fun low key day, it was perfect.  We slept in and then I got up and made Ben this really yummy breakfast, It is a blueberry breakfast cake and it smelled and apparently tasted so good.


Then we kind of just hung out, got ready and played in our house.  One of the few places I can eat out is Chili's, kinda surprising but we went there!  And how fitting right? Go back to the place we first saw each other and fell in love over rolling silverware together!

Then Ben took me to my favorite place-the mall, and I got a new hat and necklace!  He was even so patient while I shopped, it seriously brings me major endorphins. When we got home there was a beautiful sight waiting for me-Spring flowers (some Gerber Daisies which are one of my fav) and an Anthropologie bag!  Granted I already knew what was in it, I picked out a dress when we were in SLC for conference... (Don't worry mom, it was on super sale!)


I would put a pic of the dress up but I haven't worn it yet...I like to save new clothes
For Ben I made him this little book online, it's called "I love you because..." And I put just a few reasons why I love him!  It was a sentimental gift but it was really fun to make and I think Ben loved and appreciated it.

and so on and so on...

So that was six months, a fabulous day with a fabulous husband!

Ps. We are So going to Cheesecake Factory in Phoenix at the end of the month!

The my life sucks game...

So in high school and even college, Kylie and Britt and I used to play this game when we were feeling particularly sorry for ourselves, haha it was usually me but when we would be sad or overwhelmed or anything we would play the "my life sucks game" .  The game goes like this- you say a reason your life sucks and then the other people tell you in a few sentences how you can fix it and how your life doesnt suck.  Although in high school it was funny and like



Cassie-"My life sucks because my teeth aren't as white as I want them to be" 

Kylie and Britteny-"White Strips DUH?!"

Kylie-"My life sucks because I don't know who I should date!"

Cassie and Britteny-"Just follow your heart!! At least you got options!"

So it's just a funny little game we play.  Lately I have been stressing about lots of things and feeling sorry for myself, so I am gonna play this game with myself to cheer up and let you all know whats up with us these days!

-My life sucks because Ben is selling this summer, I am staying here for spring and we will be apart for 2 months!!
-This will be worth it, you will be closer to graduating, and hopefully Ben will be making money!  Also when you do see each other it will that much sweeter!

-My life sucks because I am on this diet and have not had sugar or carbs or caffeine in sooo long and I crave it like crazy!
-Nothing tastes as good as being thin...you have lost weight and feel better about yourself!

-My life sucks because I am sick of school and finals are a week away
-Suck it up Cassie! You only have 2 real finals this semester and neither of them are comprehensive!

-My life sucks because I am super homesick and not going home this summer
-You are seeing your family in Phoenix at the end of this month and you still are going to Echo! Skype it up..Duh?!

-My life sucks because my hair will not grow longer
-Accept it. You will always have medium length hair.

-My life sucks because our church is at 8:30 in the morning
-Only 4 more months of this, and you can come home and sleep for 6 six hours....PLUS church ROCKS!

-My life sucks because Provo is a mega tease and I want spring time soo bad!
-Again...Phoeniz-a billion degrees in 17 days!

My life sucks because we are going to be in Provo forever, a ton of my friends are graduating and it feels like we never will
-School is totally a good place to be right now!  Enjoy Provo and friends and an array of places to eat!

My life sucks because we have very limited funds and I have been to afraid to look at our bank for months
-Pay your tithing and it will all work out...Or get a job....no just kidding...Ben will be totally APX and you'll make like a million in one summer! (haha, I could be a recruiter)

My life sucks because we're going to freaking Missouri for the summer....What's in Missouri?
-At least you get to try something new, there is a pool and hot sun, you can get a lot of reading done and you can always find something fun to do with the person you love!

Ok so that's it! Kind of long but look at that-Turn a negative into a positive just like that!
In the words of Shawn Mullins (whoever that is) "Ever-y-thing is gonna be allllright....rockabye, rockabye"

If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay...
quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away!
