I had a blast this weekend in my hoops.
On Friday we ended up going to Friday Night Live, where the weather was gorgeous. It was packed so I couldn’t hoop until about 9:30 p.m. when the crowd with young kids started clearing out. I brought out the glow hoop immediately and got a ton of oohs and ahhs and people cheering me on. It was great, and I handed out a couple business cards after to people who asked about it.
Saturday we went to the Northern Virginia Brewfest in Leesburg. Brought my hoops, of course. Spent a good amount of time trying beers, ate some lunch, then spent a lot of the afternoon/evening hooping. I impressed a couple crowds, got a free drink because of it (though I originally turned it down—I can’t drink and hoop very well and I was full from eating dinner/lunch).
I handed out a BUNCH of business cards, which felt great, and had a lot of people ask me about classes, hoops and how the heck I learned to do it. One woman even bought a hoop from me—I made it today so now I have to get it to her. The brunette lady who likes green. I can’t wait to get it to her. I hope she likes it. Here it is!
Today we got a lot done. Laundry. Cleaning. Covered a fire for work (I’m a journalist). Went to Kohl’s and traded the Nu Wave Oven we got for Christmas in for a new toaster, a vacuum and a bathroom scale. Went to Home Depot to get info on tiling the patio. I bought 200 feet of pex tubing (in 1/2″ and 3/4″), couplers and a pop riveter. I made four hoops tonight (well, remade two). I also put together another four naked hoops that are ready for taping. Time to get ready for work tomorrow and go to sleeeeep. I love sleep.
