Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, May 10, 2012


My SparkBuddy, RUNNER4LIFE08 told me her daughter is auditioning for her 2nd Grade Talent Show. Guess what she's gonna do? hOOp!! Audrey and I put together a video with some basic tricks that might be a good fit for her act. Hoopers rock, at ALL ages! Good luck, Kacie and Kyleigh!! We're cheering for you!

  I just joined SparkPeople and your personality and videos have inspired me to become a "Happy Hooper" as well!!! I went out and bought my 5-year-old son and I medium sized hoops lastnight and am going to start practicing today. I am soooo excited. I am perusing your blogs looking for more instructional "Happy Hooper" videos teaching the basics. I think you make an EXCELLENT instructor and are so peppy and positive that I seriously hope you consider posting step-by-step instructional videos for all of us to use. Thank you soooo much for the inspiration!!!! emoticon

  You must do a video on buying hoop with all dos & don;ts? I agree with kARIDIAN1
so when are you doing it?
I love your videos! And your blogs too. emoticon

    Lots of fun. I think you could probably make a commercial video on hooping.

    Thanks so much for your vlog! You make exercising look so much fun. It makes me want to get up and off the couch and go hoop or run or walk and be active.

Thanks again! emoticon

    You both are great instructors. Finally got a chance to watch the video tonight.

Now you need to make the video for purchasing your first hoop, the do's and don'ts for first time buyers. Types, makes, sizes etc. You could have a real ball with that I bet.

Maybe I need to get a hoop?

    That is so awesome! I gotta get a hoop so I can do some of these spiffy tricks! I won the hooping contest at the church picnic last year, and I haven't done it since. I gotta get practicing. The picnic is coming up in a couple of months. How do I save these blogs so I can come back to them?

    It's true, people do love watching spinny people.
Hee.
Hee.
Nice BUTT shot. Those jeans are so cute on you, Shel!
Ah, nuts. I missed what your t said cuz I was checking out your jeans.
3:29 I was orbit-thing , I was waiting to Audrey to lung the hoop...she was gettin' some serious momentum.
Audrey (way cute shorts), but, you're in shorts?! Oh, man..I think Spock is lying to me. We really do live in the North Pole.
I'm rewatching this video and counting the "cools", cuz, I can and I'm sure there's not 52.
4:41 nice mani. Ya, I noticed.
5:00 the flippy orbit thingy. WAY fun! Looks NINJA!
6:00 with you and Audrey layered in the video doin' the hinge. NEATO!
I'm stealing Audrey's shirt. It's a sign of love...
I'm renagging on the 'cool' count. Y'all will get me distracted with the spinning.

Thank you so much Shelli and Audrey! I can't wait to show Kacie and Kyleigh this afternoon after they get home from school. These are things they can definitely add.

And they finally picked their music.... They are hooping to One Directions "You are Beautiful".
