even though my work weeks can be a little out of control, and sometimes i don't like that i only get 5 hours of sleep each night because i am trying to live my college lifestyle AND my full-time-job-career-real-life-lifestyle, and even though the dodgers haven't won a world series since 1988, and even though the weather in utah is not 80 degrees and sunny with an ocean breeze, and even though i eat white chocolate macadamia nut cliff bars everyday and don't even care, life is good. life is real good. and for that i am grateful.

babies and happy meals. sometimes i wish i had both of them. but until then, i can just be an aunt to my friends babies and eat happy meals with them. about a month ago i was at a dodger game with two of my good friends and while i was ordering a dodger dog and swirled yogurt with extra sprinkles, i found out that my chemistry-lab-partner-bed-sharing-golden-spoon-loving-cafe-rio-eating friend was pregnant! i couldn't be more thrilled to find out that
They are going to be wonderful parents and i'm real excited for december. so cally and ally, cheers to you, cheers to cheesecake factory in waikiki and ken orton's house of midnight pleasures. i can't wait to "pet" baby wilson, and hopefully when he/she grows up they will love all of their happy meal toys.
while we are on the topic of babies, i can't wait for this babe of a mother to bring baby number TWO into this world!

so a few nights ago i was just instaplaying around on the flix and decided to watch a documentary. a good friend had recommended 180 Degrees South to me awhile back and i finally decided to watch it. now i've never really considered myself a die-hard environmentalist who only eats, sleeps, and breathes organically. But, i mean, i've always loved a good granola bar every once in awhile, and i thoroughly enjoy kirkland signature trail mix (the ratio of 2 m&m's + 1 almond is incredible). i just have to say that this movie was absolutely mind blowing. you just have to watch it to experience the thrill for yourself. after watching it all i wanted to do was get in a boat and sail down to south america and climb patagonia. i realized that we really have been blessed with an exquisitely beautiful earth, and that there is so much of this world to experience. i keep telling myself that now is the time to do it. so i need to stop making excuses because it's not like i'm going to have more free time 2 years from now. and extra cash isn't just going to magically appear. i need to set aside the certain limitations that will prevent me and just go. right? please watch this movie and you will agree 100%.
in the mean time, here is some nature loving i've been experiencing lately......
i love being a park city instructor and wearing my fire engine red uniform everyday.

so i guess it's one of those things where you either get engaged or you get married or you have a baby or you have a real creative nitche with blogging and so you start a blog. unfortunately, neither of the aforementioned items are applicable to me. nonetheless, i feel that being an official college grade has come with not only a diploma, but also a monopoly style community chest card that instead of reading "you have won second place in a beauty contest collect $10," it says "marissa start a blog." just to preface, this blog will be periodic updates, or costco samples of my life. seeing as how everyone loves a good costco sample, i really don't think i can go wrong. so come back as much as you want. take as many samples as you want--you don't even need to lie to and say this sample is for your brother.
