A Trial Run...
Okay y'all, we're trying something today. SparkPeople's website no longer supports video blogs. This is sad news for this hooper/singalong/dogwalking SparkNerd. Coach Jen suggested I post links from YouTube. I'm reluctantly trying that. YouTube ... Read more
Just Have to Tell Y'all
Okay, so I just have to tell y'all a few updates because I feel like you're as vested in this as I am at this point. First, the pressure cooker--I hate to tell y'all this, but turns out, it's not magical. I thought it would instantly create thes... Read more

A Bit of a Numbers Game
Fall always feels more like the new year than January does for me. School starts back in session, we settle into routines, my team brainstorms a new year's worth of set designs and projects. So I do a year-end evaluation right around now, rather... Read more
New but Not New (hoop lessons)
Remember that hoop flow class I've been taking forever? I'm still working my way through it and I plan on finishing it this month. Yesterday's practice taught me two valuable lessons that seem Sparkworthy, so I thought I'd share. Honestly, this ... Read more

The Challenge That Keeps Me In Check
I've had a fun summer. I didn't take a trip or do anything earth-shattering. I'm sure my summer looks terribly dull to some folks. Pretty much, I intentionally goofed off as much as I could. Don't get me wrong, I still worked hard at my job. But... Read more

Frim Fram Sauce (singalong)
Nothing earth-shattering in this vlog. Nothing at all. I just checked off a ton of things on my to-do list today and rewarded myself with a little ukulele time. Just goofing off. But hey, the song is food-related, so does that count?? And what t... Read more
Flippy Foldy Holdy Things (hoop vlog)
I really meant it when I said I was gonna "Elsa" that hoop flow class, let it go, and move on. I also meant it when I said you'd probably be seeing more hoop spam from me. Here is the first tiny section of Day 6. Moving on. Learning.
