Hula hoops are round, they're staying round, and they'll be around forever

Fun Fabulous Friday!
Hula Hooping 101

Many people try to move their hips in a circle with the hoop. This actually makes hooping much harder.
Try this: put one foot in front of the other and just shift your weight back and forth from foot to foot. It's less of a circular hip motion and more of just a rocking or pumping motion.
In terms of which direction to hoop in, try 'em both! You'll know right away which one is right for you. I've found that right handed people generally hoop counter-clockwise, while lefties go clockwise, but many people are exceptions to this rule.

Most of all: be patient! It can take a while to get the hang of it — don't give up! If you get frustrated trying to get the hoop going around your waist, try hooping with your hands!"

Bethany says: Hey Christopher can you do this?

Christopher says: Yes Bethany I can Hula Hoop!

Christopher and Bethany say: Hey Aunt Amanda can you Hula Hoop?

Go Aunt Amanda Go!

You are the best Amanda for doing this with the kids! One day I will be thin enough to hula hoop again. However, I know 2 things: 1.) I will not be good at it. and 2.) I will make sure there are no cameras around. Hee Hee

Wow. Who knew that you knew so much about hula hooping. I wish you could have told me those things while I was trying to hula hoop.

Also, I would like to say two things about those pictures.
1. Man, I don't take a bad picture, do I?
2. Please do not double click the pictures to make them larger.

Thank you.

Awww I'm so impressed at all the talent your children have. And way to go aunt Amanda for giving it your best shot.

Echo this was so cute, you really have such good ideas about postings for your blog. I'm just going to have to start copying some of your stuff. You're good.

This is actually VERY useful information for me! Kacey wants to buy a hula hoop every time we see them in Wal-Mart. She asks me to show her how, and after I demonstrate she decides she doesn't want one anymore. I have forgotten the subtle art of the hula hoop! Thanks for the refresher course!

I've really missed you this week. I won't be there tomorrow night - going to Atlanta for the weekend. I hope you all are doing good. BTW - we all went to Zeigs for their fish dinner tonight....yummy! Miss ya - Love ya! -your faithful lurker, Echo's Karen

I usually do not create many comments, but i did some searching and wound up here "Hula hoops are round, they're staying round, and they'll be around forever".
And I do have some questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
