Lil LeBron

As usual at this time of year the weather has been predictable. Predictable that it will be unpredictable. It's hot, it's cold, it's raining. It's a vicious cycle. Last Friday it was crazy cold. 20 mph winds cold. I wanted seafood gumbo so off we went to Mike Anderson's for dinner. It was fabulous!

Saturday morning was Logan's first basketball game. In case you haven't noticed in past posts Logan takes sports really seriously & he has to look the part.

Come to find out, Logan's favorite basketball player is LeBron James.

See the resemblance?? Ha!

I only wish I could've gotten a picture of him when he was trying to intimidate the girl that was guarding him. His expressions were priceless. This was some of the funniest stuff I've seen in a long time!

Look at that form! 

Some of these kids were surprisingly good. I mean considering they're 5 & 6 years old.

He made some shots.

And showed a lot of emotion! Kids are so funny!

After the game we went to my parents, ran errands, had lunch (I can't believe all the years that I didn't eat chicken shawarma) & went to Mass. We stopped at Caliente. It had been 2 weeks & we can't go longer than that. 

Work has been crazy. We're getting into tax season so there's no early Friday's. Such a bummer. 

I've stuck with all my workouts this week. Up every morning at 4:30, Sunday & Tuesday I had 4 mi. runs & Thursday a 5 miler. Monday & Friday was leg day & arm day on Wednesday. I've felt better this week & more rested. According to my Vivofit I've been getting more deep sleep than I had been. 

Other than Logan's basketball game tomorrow the only thing on the agenda for the weekend is a piece of this

I haven't been eating king cake at work or indulging in all of the king cake flavored things that I normally do but this will be an exception! 



  1. Logan is so funny!! He and Cohen would be best friends! :)

  2. How cute...Logan looks like he had a lot of fun at the game! Love those facial expressions!! Great job on the workouts this week! YUM that cheesecake looks and sounds divine!

    1. I refrained this year from eating every king cake flavored thing I could find. I did look for the Blue Bell but I guess that flavor didn't come back.

  3. I'm seriously trying to catch up, Traci, but I'm only going back 3 posts....I think! That Logan is such a cutie! Let's hope his identifying with LeBron doesn't include the tattoos! We've got a few athletic grandchildren....grandson, Parker, is totally into basketball & quite aggressive to make up for the fact that he's a bit on the short-side at 14. Phoebe, 12, is in a City League Volley Ball team and is already talking about a Volley Ball scholarship....yes, she's that good. Then we have Taylor, 16 and our gymnast. We went to one of her Meets on Valentine's Day, and she took a 1st and 2nd place medal. They certainly didn't get their athleticism from their parents or grandparents, but both great-grandfathers were was a boxer & the other was a hockey player! It is so much fun to see the determination in children who take their chosen sport very seriously.

    I still have not had King Cake, and that picture is making me drool! We have friends in town for a couple of months, enjoying warm weather after living in cold Utah.....I might consider making a King Cake for one of our get-togethers. I would not dare make it for just The Man and I!

    Warm hugs,
