Long Distance Lovin

Long distance is really no stranger to our relationship...unfortunately. But I think I am starting to get used to it. I still miss him but I am finding things to occupy my time and focusing on some new goals.  What's going on here? The weather is absolutely beautiful, my cousin is moving in with me for the Summer and I am off to New York for my birthday in a couple weeks! I am seriously so excited for my family and my favorite city. Lyle is down working in Houston again and I just got back a week ago from visiting him! We have about 2 pictures to show of it but I loved every second. We have been so busy lately (not that I am glorifying being busy) but it's been so easy to get swept up into it.

There have been so many great and happy blessings in my life over the past couple months and I just wanted to stop and appreciate them. The cutest couple just moved into our ward and she sat next to me in relief society with baby Rosie and I am so excited about it! Our ward doesn't have too many young couples and we get along really well. I have 3 more hours left of my 50 hours of field experience this semester! Woo. My grades are killer and I have a break before my first and last summer class. But the biggest blessing in my life is that man of mine, who does whatever he can so I don't have to be stressed. This post is for you babe. I'm just over here thinking about you babe as you work your butt off. My cute cousin posted this article and I absolutely LOVE it. Everyone should read it. Lyle did these things when we had just met and over 2 years of knowing the boy he still does them. I appreciated them but I love this perspective.

8 Silent Ways Your Husband Is Screaming I Love You

Lyle is the type of husband that will drive to multiple donut places so I can try them all and decide which is my favorite. P.S. Shipleys in Texas is THE BEST. I know you will see lots of food in this post, but don't worry guys I am now on a donut fast (and sweets too).
He surprises me with my favorite treats when he is near them. This salted caramel cookie is heaven.
He's the type of husband that when he's sick and he opens his eyes from a nap he says "you're the most beautiful girl" when he sees me and is so kind and grateful. UM STOP. When I am sick and tired I wish I was like him.
He's the type of husband that when I ask if we can see the longest ride he makes a big deal about how much he wants to see it too. (this boy has probably seen every Nicholas Sparks movie with me and he never complains) On a side note I want to be a teacher like the one in that movie, so inspiring!

He is the type of husband that gets up during the previews to get us treats because its my favorite part!

He is the type of husband that lets me have the first and the last bite of the dessert.

He is the type of guy that handles long distance pretty well. A good morning text every morning and a goodnight convo and text every night. He is the type of guy that tells me he loves me 100 times a day and tells me how I am "the best wifey."

He's the type of husband who, not only lets me pick the dessert places but after I eat my cupcake, lets me teat some of his too.
He is the type of husband that keeps me laughing every single day. I always knew a sense of humor was one of the most important traits in a guy and I scored big time. Whether its at the zoo when the girls across the way start yelling to the orangoutang things like "what a handsome boy" and your husband yells back "Thank you!" or making jokes to strangers I know I will always be entertained. Below is Lyle doing impersonations of my fashion pics hahaha. I've got some great new poses now for my next shoot! 

He is the type of guy that still opens every door for me and goes and pulls the car up when its pouring rain without me even telling him to. 

He is the type of guy that makes a big deal about changes in my appearance. When I visited him in Texas with my blue eyes he kept making me stare at him the whole time I was there. He kept wanting to see them and made such a big deal about them. He always makes me feel special.

He is the type of husband that is SMOKIN HOT. Sorry babe I had to. Just when I think he can't get any hotter he does. Lyles goal is to get a 6 pack this summer but little does he know he is already the biggest stud around.
I know these posts can be annoying but I love having these pictures and memories for me to look back on and be able to show our future kids things I love about their dad. I think you can never say too many good things about your spouse. They deserve to hear it and I think its important to uplift them. I love seeing positive things people post about their spouses, it makes me so happy. I think its important to never compare and appreciate your spouse for all the amazing things he does that sometimes people can overlook. As of now we have 5 months of long distance (unless I get to go stay with him earlier) and I know that it will only strengthen our marriage for us to each work on bettering ourself before we get to have the best adventures this Fall. GUYS I AM SO EXCITED for these trips with this boy. He makes everything so much more fun. 
Love, your wifey

Angels Landing

Saint George is one of my favorite places. If I could live down there I would in a heart beat. Southern Utah in general with all the red rock is absolute perfection so any free weekend we have we head down that way. The top two picture is from the narrows near Dixie Rock and this year I was able to squeeze all the way through! I don't know if I couldn't before but I was freaking out about it so I was happy I was able to conquer it this time! One of our goals this year is to hit up all the national parks in Utah so we have a few more to hit up this Fall. Angels Landing in Zions was one of the coolest hikes! I don't think it was too difficult but if you have a fear of heights it's probably not for you...just look at the pictures. Lyle gets a little nervous about me getting close to the edges but I was fearless. I love getting to explore Utah. It is one of the prettiest states and I think more people should take advantage of all it has to offer. Here's some pictures from out little vacay a few weeks back.
This is actually a breakfast from Vegas! I love going into the city since its so close to St. George.
this is the hike going up the mountain!
Look at that happy little camper :)
Ignore our squinty eyes & bad hair. It was so hot
Yes I brightened this! My camera seriously did not do justice do the color here!
Check out this cute face.
Love, Cait

Floral & Asos

Lyle is back from California! Does it feel like I am always talking about him coming and going?! It seems that way at least...but its starting to get into his busy season and I am soaking up every second I can with this boy. We have been SO blessed with the weather this Winter, meaning, we didn't really have a Winter. This past week was a little colder (than it has been) so instead of wearing my cute bow wedges  with this dress, I decided to do an edgier look with these amazing Jeffrey Campbell look alikes, a hat and a black leather jacket. I can't wait to wear this all Summer long! Don't be surprised if I wear lots of floral. 

But anyway, I got this baby on sale like pretty much everything I get. I grabbed some other sales dresses from Asos and I'm so excited to wear all of them. If you're looking for cute dresses or anything floral, Asos is your place. Most people know about Asos, especially if you're from Utah because they have a great selection of modest dresses. I've got another European store for ya- Oliver Bonas. It's a well kept secret and I found out about it when we were in London and I loved everything I tried on. They have some cute modest stuff and I bought a couple midi dresses for under $25! One was $17. Until midnight tonight they have an extra 20% off sale! WOO. Happy Sunday everyone!
Details: Wedge booties- Forever 21
Dress: Asos (if they don't have your size keep checking! They bring back stuff a lot)
*Also, if you're a student sign up for Unidays and get 10% off
Hat: lots of options at Forever 21(they get new stuff all the time)

Suit Up

I love every swimsuit that is out this season. I am not even exaggerating, I have an addiction. I thought I would share where I am finding such cute stuff for all of you! I bet I have at least one place you didn't think to look!
I just ordered this for around $30! You seriously can't beat their prices. They have cute one pieces, bikinis and high waisted. Not to mention I got a really cute coverup from their as well.
This is the next one I have my eye on! I loveee their stuff. I just ordered the most perfect floral sale dresses from them too and I can't wait to wear them. If you are subscribed they send out great sale coupons every now and then or if you're a student you can be subscibed to UNIDAYS for a discount! That's what I use for Asos and Modcloth! I love everything from this store.
I got so many compliments on this baby! I love it and the skirt is removable too! If you're local to Provo I originally found this at Calledtosurf (they have such cute suits too & another store at the riverwoods has only swim) and I waited and waited and then it was gone. But good news I found it online and I used my Unidays discount and it was perfect.
Amazon has the absolute cheapest suits. Sometimes I have gotten ones that fit a little odd but for the price you can't beat trying because I have found a lot of cute ones too! Every piece from above is from amazon- each was under $20! If you saw my Hawaii post a lot of those were from Amazon too! They even have cute knock off triangl suits and for less than $30 I just gotta try 'em.
I had to. But this suit is only $43. I own it and let me just say it is absolutely perfect. It's SO flattering. For some reason I have no pictures in it but they have it in another color too! I love all of Victorias stuff but this was such a good deal I just had to share!
This picture doesn't even do this suit justice. Oh man. Or other department stores such as my favorite, Nordstrom have really cute stuff.
For anyone looking for modest suits this is your place. They have all sorts of colors and patterns and styles and they are so cute! This is my favorite style top and actually prob one of my favorite swims she has so don't be surprised if you see me wearing it or like 10 others that she makes. 
If you haven't noticed yet I love all the fruit patterns. I think that they, along with floral and bright swim are perfect for Summer! I got these bottoms and not the top- so I could instead wear a red top with it just for a pop of pattern. I like to be open and just buy a bunch of pieces I can intermix. Aerie has some really cute stuff this year!

You can also find really cute stuff at Urban Outfitters, TARGET (i love target), Etsy, or if you have money places like anthro or you can design your own at Kiniswimwear. <---I already designed my suit and have it saved on my phone haha for when I decide I can spend over $200 on a suit (I just can't).
