Our Hooptacular Backyard Birthday Bash (with alternate endings)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, March 24, 2012


Today is my 45th birthday (yesterday, by the time I post this). Audrey and I wanted to tape a hooptacular dance number, but it wouldnít stop raining. We finally gave up on the rain going away, set up Audreyís Flip camcorder under an umbrella and hooped in the rain. What you see is unscripted, unchoreographed hooptacularness, with alternate endings. And that audio that sounds like static? Itís rain falling on the umbrella...

45--Iím loving that number. Itís right in the middle of so much possibility. The middle is often a fun place to be. You never know whatís coming next. Could be crisis or a storm. But, it could also be a joyful surprise. I like stumbling upon those. And ďDancing QueenĒ is my song! Guilty pleasure? Perhaps, but it makes me ridiculously happy EVERY time I hear it. Iím not sure why. I was nine when it debuted. Maybe I remember singing along with my cousins, using Loveís Baby Soft bottles as microphones. Maybe it reminds me of the flashmob I did with some of my besties. I donít know, but it has become my personal theme song. And Audrey loves it too--well, she loves the Mamma Mia soundtrack version, so thatís what we used. Dancing Queen, hoops, spectacular wigs, disco ball earrings and the worldís best daughter being silly with you? Best birthday, ever. Hoopy 45 to me, indeed. Iím a blessed gal.
