Hey Lakers Fans!!! This is Melissa here, checking in with you all!
I’m in my second season with the Laker Girls and so excited to be back for another season!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! Now that it’s the start of the New Year, I’ve created a list of New Year’s resolutions that I hope to accomplish before 2013 comes around...wow that’s weird to say 2013! One of my New Year’s resolutions is to spend more time with family and friends. Since the NBA season started, it seems as if my schedule has been so hectic! So it’s a goal of mine to visit my friends and family whenever I have a day off :)

Also, one of my other resolutions is to be a great pet owner! I became a proud parent over the Christmas holidays, because one of my gifts was a puppy!! He’s a cute, little maltipoo named Timmy! It warms my heart just thinking of him, hee hee!

Another major goal of mine for 2012 is to become a stronger person - both mentally and physically. I want to grow stronger and be open to learn anything new. I want to do whatever it takes, to help myself become a better person overall.

One way I know that will help me become a stronger person is by going to our Laker Girl practices/rehearsals! Did you know we rehearse twice a week, 3-4 hours each night? Our rehearsals usually consist of us setting routines for upcoming games, learning new routines and going over details to help us improve as a team. I feel our time together at practice is very challenging, productive and yet really informative! Since I am talking about our rehearsals…… we have learned a lot of new routines that are fun to perform! My favorite routine is to Beyonce’s song, “Run the World.” I feel this routine is an exciting, sassy dance that is very energetic!

So, as you can see, it’s important to keep our energy up and our brain power going. Sometimes, before practice, I stop by a close by Carl’s Jr. and pick up my favorite, the Charbroiled Chicken Salad to help give me the energy I need! It’s a very yummy and healthy choice for the person “on the go”.

Our Lakers games have been so fun! It’s so amazing to be back at STAPLES Center cheering on the Lakers team with my fellow teammates and all of you faithful Lakers fans! It is always exciting to be in the arena and feel the amazing energy that everyone brings to our games!

Now that it is a new season, we have new costumes this year that you may have seen. One of my favorites is our new Carl’s Jr. uniform that we wear during 3rd quarter of each home game. It’s black and gold with the famous Carl’s Jr. Star displayed on it……..it is cute!

Well, that’s it for now…… I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season brings!

Thanks for reading!

Hope to see you at a game sporting your Purple and Gold!

Until next time, this is Melissa signing off!
