Anne,

Do you have a feature layer with attributes? If so, then you can add two fields , call them Lat and Long. Right click the heading of one of the Fields and choose "Calculate Geometry" in the unit dropdown box should be Decimal.

If you want your data to be in Decimal Degrees use the project tool.

If you want to simply keep track of the decimal degree coordinates of your UTM data, add two fields in your UTM data attribute table like Latitude and Longitude as double type.  The use the calculate geometry feature in an edit session setting the appropriate units.

That should just about do it....
