Hoop and Uke Challenge (with Chubbs and Pudding...

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, September 10, 2012


Shortly after I got my ukulele, one of my SparkBuddies (can't remember who--KARIDIAN or ANGELWENDYMAMA maybe?) asked me if I could play and hoop at the same time.

Challenge Accepted!!

Okay, hooping, playing AND singing (or feebly attempting to) was a little harder than I thought it'd be. Kinda like trying to dance and sing. Audrey keeps saying, "Gee, you're out of breath, Mom." I reminded her that we shot it probably five times, thank you very much.

Anyway, hooping, uking and a starring role by our favorite SparkPigs--we're a classy operation around here. And we tried very hard, to enlist Gunner as part of the camera crew. He wasn't very good at following directions...


Hoop Challenge Met!!
sha-BAM!

    This is insanely funny. I love it. Oh my goodness dragging family and pets into your videos.

I used to have a guinea pig named Travis. I never thought about putting him into the act. I will now have to rethink that.

    I've been waiting until I managed to view vlogs on my computer again so that I could finally view this one and all I can say is...

... it was worth the wait!!

Clever, skillful, tuneful, novel and, of course, very entertaining!

Thank you so much - you brighten our lives!

    Proof that I love you: I just willingly sat through 3+ minutes of a song that I have a very bad relationship with so that I could watch your awesomeness. emoticon Seriously, though - you are awesome and you DO make it look easy, which means you're really good at what you're doing! Love it!

    Fun! I think drumming and hooping would be hard too - the drum not being able to rotate hips or anything :^)

    It's nice to see that you've passed on the importance of eating veggies to your guinea pigs!
I think the hula hooping impressed me the most as I never did have enough coordination to master it...

    Don't know what impresses the most - 1. The singing and hooping or 2. Your production skills with your recordings. Surely you have had formal training. I am self taught on many things but would never be able to figure out how to achieve the finish product the way you do. Lady of many talents!!! Kudos to the lady!!

    You, Audrey, Chubs and Pudding all rock!
You sang very well - and yes, singing, playing an instrument and doing anything else at the same time is NOT EASY. I know from experience.

Applause! Applause!
