I am not dead yet..

(and if you keep singing after reading that title, you are awesome)

So, I went to Florida Flow Fest and it was amazing.  I was supposed to write an article about it but I just didn't know how I could write about how amazing and epic the entire weekend was.  I did take a good bit of hoop classes.  It was amazing to rub elbows with the famous of the hoopers.  Although the weekend showed a few things very clear:  I am a weird person since I still use irrigation tubing.  And I refuse to go to polypro 99% of the time.  The reason why I don't want to switch: if I don't learn how to do moves or not learn how to do moves with my hoop, I'll never really do anything with said move.  But if I learn with my troo hoop (or whatever), then I might figure out how to change it to work with heavier hoops.  I'll throw up some of the florida pictures.


I also want to tell everyone that I won't be writing for Hooping.org anymore (at least on a regular basis).  With my job requiring mandatory overtime, it's been so hard to balance all the things I have to do.  So I had to let it go.  When the writing bug comes to me, I will send articles to hooping.org to (hopefully) get posted.









And I posted some stills from my curvy hoopers video on facebook but here's a few more:





I will eventually post all the stills....


And did you see the results for Curvy hoopers challenge?  I'm so glad for Brandy and Shelli!  Especially Shelli cause she's awesome and I know her (eventually this will be in real life).  Next up for me is hoping that I will get nominated for the hoopies (of I don't know) and that hoop camp contest I keep entering!  Also, I might go to kinetic fire this year!  And I believe I will be teaching at PlayThink! this year! Exciting! 

But in the not so exciting news, I was relieved of my position at the gym and I wasn't paid for the last month.  So I've been disappointed since.

And I got a new tattoo guys):


My next big, close to my heart one will be....a hoop dancer.  So hey, if anyone wants to design me one, email me!

  1. Jeez Louise, I find it so interesting that there are people who actually have big hooping get-togethers where they all go be good at hooping. I have never been able to hoop and have always just written it off as "hard," but it obviously isn't if this many people are good at it!

    1. Hey Sara, I never could hoop before buying an extra large adult hoop. Here's a how to video I've made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJU24J0346Y


      Those Wal*mart hoops aren't made for adult bodies! Check out places like hoopmomma's on etsy, hoopnotica, bodyhoops for excellent hoops made for adults. It's so much fun!
