Since it has been soooo freakin’ rainy lately I have not been able to get some good hooping time in. There is no real big space in our house to do it inside so I’ve been anxiously waiting for this stupid rain to stop. BUT my hoop tape FINALLY came in the mail yesterday!! And I finally got Marky to help me out with his fire torching skills to put my hoops together before I tape them. I could probably do it myself but the fire thing scares me a little and I trust him to do it better and safer than I would.
I didn’t want to screw up my first one and ruin my cute bunny tape I got so I used my new neon gaffer tape to make the first one. It has been months since I taped my last hoop so I was a little rusty. Here are a couple pics of my new and very BRIGHT (for now anyway) new hoop!
Yay! Can’t wait to play with it! Rain, rain go away!
Hippity Hoppity Hoop
I started HulaFit class again last Thursday, I had really been missing it! Since my body has been a little sore ever since, I have been taking a break the last couple days and took some pics of Bunny hooping instead! Here are some of Bunny’s glamour shots 😉
If only she was as nice as she is cute!
I hope my tape comes tomorrow so I can start making my new hoops!
My Hoop Path
With the launch of the new hooping.org I have found inspiration to start a blog that will chronicle my hooping journey. Although I started hooping with an adult size hoop about a year ago, only recently have a started getting more serious about it. I have started taking a Hula Fit class twice a week (on vaca this week, thank god, it’s been 95 degrees every day!) which is more of a work out class than a hoop dance class. I have learned a couple new tricks though, like the revolving door and realized I can hoop while on my knees (I am on my knees, not hooping on my knees).
Since it has been so hot out the last few days I haven’t been hooping at all. Hopefully it will cool off a little in the next hour or so seeing as how it’s dark now so I can get in a little time with my fuzzy hoop!
So today after browsing the new hooping.org I started searching for decorative hoop tapes. I need to make myself a new hoop because mine is too small. I realized this after using the hoops in my Hula Fit class. I need one that is bigger so I can learn new moves more easily. Also, I think I am too tall for the size of it. Imagine that, ME, too TALL? hehe Anyway, aside from identi-tape.com which has been recommended by a lot of people on Hoopcity, I found some really cute tape on this site:http://www.modes4u.com/en/ just doing a Google search. I hope it will work. I think I’m going to order a few rolls anyway since it’s pretty cheap compared to other tapes. I’m thinking about getting a couple for possible future hoop gifts, but I want this one for myself cuz I love the cute little bunnies! (SUPRISE)
I do wish the bunnies were smiling though, why so sad?
OK off to spend some money and hang out with my REAL bunny bun.
