You didn't post this in the discussion! I may have missed this if I wasn't paying attention. I need to think a bit on my words but I am so in.

I posted a link over there to bring everyone over!

I'll be sending in my questionnaire once I get a slot open (should be pretty soon)!

So can we post the words we listed? I want to! Most of these are kind of affirmations because I see my hoops several times a day and if I'm having words up there they may as well inspire me, right? I stole 6 + straight from my Pinterest.

1 G&J (me and my husband)
2 H (our last name)
3 werd
4 word
5 [the alphabet in a really cool font]
6 Be your own kind of beautiful.
7 Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry.
8 Don't panic.
9 Do something creative every day.
10 Don't forget to play.
11 Eat more veggies!
12 Believe that everything is possible.
13 Today will be an awfully big adventure.

Also, I want 2 partners. I love hoops, both the making and the receiving. How many are you guys going for?
