Happy Birthday Mr. President...

Disclaimer-It is my husbands birthday today. We are 1, 594 miles apart. I miss him. This is gonna be a mushy one! 
"Thanks Mr. President for all the things you've done, all the battles you have won"
                                                                       
June 24th.
Ben is turning 24-Life is Golden.
Yes it is Ben's golden birthday today, most definitely a reason to celebrate!
Today though is not a celebration of our love, like an anniversary, it is all about YOU!

Ben, before I met you, I didn't think guys like you existed, you are so kindhearted, sweet, thoughtful, selfless,funny, and dashingly handsome!  
I was waiting for all your faults to show up, but they didn't. and haven't. you are just this great guy. a kind of guy that girls dream about marrying someday. you completely embody my "YW future husband list" haha
Really though, you are my favorite person and my best friend.
I love the person you are.
I love...
How you are so OCD about being wet and stepping on the bathroom floor
How your feet touch my feet in the night.
How you squint your nose and glare at me when you pretend you are mad at me.
How you love to watch weird documentaries.
How your hair has that amazing little cowlick/calick in the front.
How secretly competitive you are.
How you make me laugh till my stomach hurts.
How you have this amazing skin tone.
How we are so stinkin GOOD TOGETHER!

that face!....Ignore the watermark
I.am.smitten.

Happy Birthday Benjamin
I love you from the top of head to the tips of my toes.

First day of school

So yesterday was the first day of summer school for me.
I can't believe I'm going to say this but I think I love Summer school.
I have always loved the first day of school though, 
I don't know what it is about stationary and school supplies but they make me so happy!
There is no better thing than the first brand new fresh page of a notebook.
Love me some Staples!

BYU campus is in full bloom and is super beautiful.
There is a vast amount of parking.Yes Please.
And there just seems to be more joy around campus,
that also could be the massive amounts of EFY cheering going on.

Anyways...

To graduate in Communications, one has to have 65 credits of Liberal Arts Classes,
as to ensure we have a well rounded education.
So just when I thought I was done with my GE's, I am back in 100 level-busy work-classes.
AND HOLY FRESHMAN!
In one on my classes yesterday, there were only 4 of us who were not freshman out of 120!
I love it though.
A poor innocent freshman turned around to me in such a panic and was like
"What is blackboard?!!? Everyone keeps talking about it?!!"
Bless his heart, I just wanted to guide him through BYU and tell him blackboard is super easy.
I remember being so overwhelmed my first day, there were so many people and buildings and words I had never heard of before like "citation" and "syllabus".
I also wanted to tell him how fun his freshman year was going to be! I truly treasure my freshman year, it was amazing and something you can never re-create. Anyways I told him all the secrets I wish someone told me freshman year like the testing center has hours and JFSB basement has no cell service haha!


Anyways even though I miss Ben with all my heart, I think this Summer is going to be
A. O. K!

Dads Day

I remember when I was little and it was time to go to bed, I would go to give my dad a goodnight hug and every night I can remember thinking that it felt so good to hug my dad and I wished I would have done it earlier because then I had to go to bed.

My dad is the best, he is such a good example to me of loyalty, sacrifice and love.
One of my favorite feelings is when I can make my dad laugh, and it is pretty easy because he laughs at everything!
He always made our home feel safe and protected.
I had a cool experience because since I am 12 years older than my little sister, I really got to see how good of a dad he was to my little sister and now she is a full on daddy's girl.

I feel so lucky to have so many great men in my life.
Grandpa Clark I miss you, you were such a sweet, generous man who loved life, seeing the world and Frosted Flakes.
Grandpa MacLennan, I love getting hugs from you too and your smile, you are such a good father to your kids and always bring our family together.
And a special Fathers day shout out to Bruno Tremblay, the father to the love of my life, you make every one laugh and feel welcome, are so generous, have an awesome accent and thanks for raising such an amazing son.

And to my Ben, you are going to be a wonderful father someday, it is one of the many things I love about you!

Summer days driftin away.....

So friends, I am back in Provo after a much debated decision whether to stay in MO or come back home, 
I am back in our house in Provo and the air is dry and I love it.
I do not love being away from my significant other though, and I am prepared for that only to get harder.

Anyways, while I was wasting away days in Missouri, I got on the "mom" schedule and started watching Ellen everyday along with Dr. Phil, I am sad I missed out on the Oprah days and was not a big day time television watcher in her generation of followers.
Anyways I just love the Ellen show, I think she is hilarious and she always has good celebs on.
Ellen started off her show with welcoming everyone to the first day of official summer and she told us all her summer goals, which got me thinking that I really need to have a summer goal list, you know things I want to accomplish before Labor Day!
So here it is....

Cassie Tremblay's Summer Goals

-Blog More!! (Atleast once a week)
-Write my brother Matt more often in Chile (I miss him)
-Get invited to the Kardashian wedding (Stole this one from Ellen but I adore K+K)
-Get all A's in my summer classes (And yes I count A minus's as A's)
-Get a job ASAP (A big reason why I came back here)
-Get Justin Bieber to Re-Tweet me (1 in 10 million chance-NEVER SAY NEVER!)...
...Omg protest to get the word Bieber added to the spell check dictionary-The name is an American staple!
-Eat healthy and continue running and Yoga
-Read non-school books (Finish 6 whole books)
Get my name changed...finally! (SS, Passport, licence)
Try to make the best of being away from my husband.


Well those are my summer goals as of now, I hope I can accomplish nearly all of them and I will report back when the first leaves begin to fall!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

AHHHHHHHHH
Is what I was doing a lot of when we took a trip to 
SIX FLAGS!
So we were super excited for our trip to the St. Louis Amusement Park, 
we drove with some of the other guys from team orange shirts on a very hot and very humid day, 
we paid and walked into the park and all of the guys started running towards a mammoth huge loop de freaking loop roller coaster and then it hit me....

"I don't really like amusement parks, I'm scared of everything"

I really do have panic rising inside of me as I look at all the huge roller coasters and towers of fear.
So we started off with some easy rides, you know the big boat that rocks back and forth?
Well that was the first ride and I screamed like a baby, which I continued to do for most all of the day.

Anyways we met up with the guys and somehow they convinced me to go on a roller coaster
I was assured by this pack of salesmen that "this one wasn't even scary"
And then there I am strapped in to the very scariest roller coaster in the whole park, legs shaking, eyes tearing and begging them to let me off, people from all the carts looking and laughing at me.....
And then we were off.

And it was horribly scary and I screamed every second with my eyes closed, tears pouring onto my cheeks and knees hitting each other in terror.
I admit that it rocked my world and was a horrible experience but it did get my confidence up
and I ended up going on almost every ride in the park including like 4 other coasters.

So maybe I do like amusement parks, I am not sure yet?

Anyways it ended up being a really sweaty great day and I am glad we went, 
despite losing my voice completely for a day.

Sorry no pics....how boring

Meet me in St. Louis...


Ben and I had a perfect day in St. Louis!
He had the day off so we drove to St. Louis which is about 2 hours away.
Ususally I hate driving, but I don't mind when it's Ben and I, I love just having the time to talk, relax
and we play car games, plus the drive is really beautiful and green.

So we got into St. Louis, put on Nelly's "Welcome to St. Louis" (you have to right?) and made our way to the famous
St. Louis Arch.  If you don't know about the St. Louis Arch--

The Gateway Arch, or Gateway to the West,[5] is an arch that is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri. It was built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States. At 630 feet (192 m), it is the tallest man-made monument in the United States,[4] Missouri's tallest accessible building, and the largest architectural structure designed as a weighted or flattened catenary arch.



The arch is way bigger than I thought it was going to be!  It was memorial day weekend so there were thousands of people there, but it is cool because it is downtown right along the Mississippi River and is surrounded by a really pretty park!

We took lots of pictures, Ben humored me and bought tourist t-shirts for us and we looked around the museum underground beneath the arch.  


Sometimes I really don't like this job we are doing here, but I probably never would have seen this cool city and monument without it!

After the arch, we went to a huge, great mall and walked and shopped.
We had a delicious dinner at California Pizza Kitchen and then headed home.

I loved seeing St. Louis and I loved spending the day with Ben.

The bridge over the Mississippi

The park leading up to the arch

the only way you could get a picture underneath it
Yes we are tourists and yes we have matching shirts!
That is the one side of the base behind us, It is so big!

Missouri? Misery?...We'll see.



Ok so I am officially in Cape Girardeau Missouri, I am finally reunited with my husband, which is so great, except I have only seen him awake for like 15 minutes total but it is happy to know I get to see him every morning and every night!
So I have had a really bad attitude about this whole thing, I was not excited to  move here, live in a hotel, pay two rents, be alone all day etc.  Today has been my first full day here and here is what I'm thinking...

Me and Missouri got off to a bad start because my flight was delayed like 3+ hours and so I arrived at around 2 am and didn't get into a bed until like 3 or 4 am, so that was a really long trip.

HUMID, OMG...I have never lived in a humid place, or even visited...When I stepped off the plane I was gasping for air, I feel like I can't breathe good here...I am pretty sure I will die of Pulmonary Edema or something, you know when your lungs fill with water, because it literally feels like I am in a perma-steam room.  
Today I went to Walmart to do some grocery shopping because apparently my husband has been eating ice cubes for the past 2 weeks without me because he had no food.  (He also stuffed all of his clean clothes into a garbage bag after taking them from the dryer, making them so wrinkled and mangled that they need to be re dried...what do guys do without a woman?)
  Anyways I was walking from my car into Walmart, sweating out of every pore of my body, that or just the water molecules in the air attacked my body, taking deep breaths as to get enough oxygen and wondering why I bothered blow drying my hair and I couldn't help but wonder why people choose to live here.  You are in a 24 hour shower and there tornadoes ripping through here all the time! I googled some stuff about humidity to see if I could prevent it at all and I found a stat saying that out of 12 000 people polled, 93% hated it....
This is my life
Anyways, we are also living in a hotel, yes I know it sounds glamorous, Blaire, Nate, Serena and Chuck live
in a hotel on Gossip Girl...Ours is just like that except it is one room and is nothing like that.  It is not as bad as I thought it would be though.  You really have no reason to get out of bed in the morning (not in the depressing way...well kind of) but you wake up and you are in the bedroom and then you sit up and you are in the living room and then you look to the left and you are in the kitchen and office all at the same time, it is.....handy....
It does have ok aspects though, free housecleaning, yes please, free parking, luggage carts to bring your groceries in, a vast quantity of towels and a free gym membership...to a one treadmill gym! haha Also it is kind of tender, but the kitchen has only two of everything, two plates, two glasses, two spoons, two forks, it was made for an eternal couple, "Just the two of us...."

So I was meaning to say that I have had a really bad attitude but it really is all great and I should be happy, well the people are really nice, everyone in walmart was super helpful and the southern accent by everyone makes me feel cultured! ha!  Ben says you get used to the water droplets taking over the air, we will see about that, but I really do want to be happy where I am so I am going to try and make the best of it, separating walls or no separating walls!  

So these are my thoughts after my first day in the South. Itsgonnabeagoodsummer, itsgonnabeagoodsummer, itsgonnabeagoodsummer, itsgonnabeagoodsummer, iwillnotdieinatornado.
