HOW in the world is it already the end of August? I can’t keep my days straight and somehow keep thinking that we’re still at the beginning of the month. Imagine the shock I’ve been in when I wake up and it’s DARK and COLD outside… and think it’s still summer.
I’m in denial that the days are getting shorter, and still am trying to fill my days with summer-y items that make me smile! Here’s a little bit of what’s been going on currently.
- Iced coffee all day
- Who am I?! I’ve been known to sip hot black coffee alllll summer long. But lately, I’ve been craving iced, creamy and sweet concotions like they’re going out of style. This is SO unlike normal morning Marissa, but I’ve embraced it and have been having weekly Starbucks Double Shots with a caramel drizzle as a little pre-work treat.
What’s more fun that waking up with the sun to get out and play in the Boulder Bubble? This week, some friends and I hiked up to the first flatiron to get some fresh air before plopping in our desks for the day. The best thing about sunrise playtime? I can shower at work!! Lake time!

As always, almost every weekend has been spent at Lake McConaughy. I even invested in a new inflatable paddle board! To my surprise, it gets just as firm as a regular board but compresses down into a size that I can fit in the back of my car. Win, win!
My other favorite Summer is growing up way too fast. *sad crying emoji* Lucky for me, I’ve got to spend lots of time with her at the lake this summer and we’ve been having a ton of fun swimming in the ocean (lake). We’re best friends and both don’t like to brush our hair or change out of our swimsuits. Her favorite words are now “oh fut (fu*k),” “I fine” and “chocolate milk.” She’s sassy and smart and such a summer baby.

I mean, I just can’t get enough. If there goes a day where I’m not singing one of these songs or something from Pitch Perfect, Ian should be worried. I probably hit my head or something.
Oh, and for a little bit more randomness… I really want this salt lamp. Does anyone have one and can tell me if it really is as cool as it seems or if I’m just wasting my money and need to get off of Amazon at 4pm on Wednesdays when I’m over working.
