Marissa says: "Today started off GREAT! What a lot of you may not know is that I love wild life. And today I woke up to see two ducks in my pool. I was soooo happy I fed them. Judah got mad because he doesn't think ducks and people should swim in the same pool - HAHA - but I LOVED IT!.
Confession time. During rehearsal today? I totally cried! I hope they don't use it in Monday night's show but I bet they do. I can't believe I'll be the one crying on the show.... UGUGUGH"
