PREP + GET READY WITH ME FOR FAMILY PHOTOS | WEEKEND VLOG | Tara Henderson
Didn't. Care about the rules cut, on the weekends. I'll. Be in fools just in the deep space, so. I thought I would start today's vlog off, tonight. Showing you guys the. Kids outfits, because we, are taking our holiday, photos tomorrow morning, at. Sunrise, so, I'm. Prepping everything tonight so that hopefully our morning runs as smoothly as possible but I wanted to show you guys what. The kids are wearing so, I got the girls outfits, from Rainey's closet, that's where I get all of their outfits for whenever. We're shooting something like family, photos or. Bailey. Wore two to Demond from, Rhaenys closet, for. Her Halloween costume last, year she wore a red dress similar to this but. I'm. Going with the pink and gray, tones Adams. Wearing a navy blue suit and. I'll show you guys my dress in a second, but. This cape, is, so beautiful, it's a separate. Piece from the dress and then these pink. Blush. Velvet, bows are. From, LaBella. Baby or, LaBella, bows I can't remember I'll link her shop and everything, down below in the description box if you guys are interested. But. This is Shay's outfit, and then, I got both of the girls these, blush. Pink, mini. Melissa's, with the bow they're so pretty and I feel like they match their. Dress perfectly, and, then. This is Grayson's, outfit, I tried it on him already and he looks so cute, babe I have to show you the picture I took a picture of him he. Looks he. Looks so cute in this it's like the most subtle shade, of pink and then. These. Great, pieces are. From an, Etsy. Shop which I'll have linked down below and then he's gonna wear these gray. Moccasins. From freshly-picked, and. Then. This, is what Bailey is gonna wear so, same. Thing from two to Demond and you can get a package, from Rainey's closet, too that, includes. Accessories. So, I, decided. To get, baleia hair accessory, because i'm going to have, her hair down and I'm going to curl it tomorrow morning so. This is what, I'm going to put in her hair how beautiful, is that. Develop. It Shay's. Gonna be wearing um pigtail. Bows and then, these cuffs are stunning. So. She's. Gonna wear one, on each arm, with. Her, dress. Her, dress goes all the way to the floor and then. Same thing her. Mini Melissa shoes so. That's. What the kids are wearing and, then this is what Adam and I will, be wearing so, I got this dress from, red. Dress boutique, it's, long sleeve. There's. The detailing, on it it's really, really, pretty I wore, a similar dress to Hillary's, baby shower, but. This is more of like a long floor.
Length That's not floor length it goes to like my ankles. It's. A little bit different but, I thought this would, be perfect for, our family photos, because. It's like super chic and I just go so perfectly with the girls and, Grayson's. Outfit, um so. Yeah it's a really pretty cream, color it. Has a little bit of like sparkle, in it up, close it's. Kind of hard to see in this lighting but I love it I love the lace and. The. Ruffle detailing, is really pretty and then I'm. Going to pair. It with these nude, heels, that I wear all. The time not. All the time like, walking. Into Target on a Wednesday, but whenever. We're doing shoots, or I, have an event or something these. Are like the perfect blushy, nude heel, they go with everything and, they're from for her 21 and they're so old I think I've had these for like four years. I should, probably invest, in some nicer, ones but these honestly, do, me. Just fine so I'm wearing those and. Then, this is what Adams gonna be wearing so it's like a deep navy. Blue. Suit. I just. Got it dry-cleaned and the pants are, behind. That and then. Here. Is his shirts, just a white shirt white, button-down shirt which I need to iron so I think, I'm going to do that. After I take a shower I need to take a shower tonight and curl my hair because, we. Have to wake up so, early in the morning I think I'm gonna get up at like 4:30, 4:45. Somewhere. Around there because we. Have to be out of the house I think by, like 5:45. So. I'm excited, but I'm kind of nervous I feel like a sunrise, shoot is a smarter. Idea at, least for our kids than. A, sunset, shoot. Because by, the time the, Sun is setting our, kids are just running. Amok and here. In the worst moods so. I figured, we, would have a sunrise shoot because they're always so peppy and happy, in the morning so, fingers. Crossed there. That way tomorrow morning for us this could be a total fail but, I'm. Gonna hop in the shower right. Now curl my hair and, do, everything. I can to prep, for, tomorrow, morning so that everything. Runs smoothly, these are the earrings that I'm gonna wear these are just costume, jewelry I don't really own like any fancy. Jewelry, I think I got these, at. Forever 21 to, like years ago, but. Since my dress is long, sleeve and it goes all the way up to my neck I'm just gonna wear. Earrings and, I feel like the dress already has a lot going on so I'm just gonna wear these little, studs actually. If they're not super little they're a decent size so. I think. That's the only piece of jewelry aside, from my wedding ring that I'm gonna wear. Okay. I just got out of the shower I'm going to use. The. It's, a ten leave-in. Conditioner, in my hair right now with. A. Wet. Brush. So. After I blow dry my hair I'm gonna use at this curling iron this is what I use every single day to. Curl my hair it's, like hot tools and I think it's the one in 1/4. Inch, clamp. Wand I'll have this link down below if you guys are interested but, I always get so many questions about the, curling iron that I use but. This is literally the only product, I ever use. In my hair I don't use a serum sometimes. I will but honestly like on an everyday basis I only use this. Stuff and then sometimes, dry shampoo, if I, need a texturizing, shampoo. This. Is the one that I use the triple sec by, dry bar but I rarely use this stuff so let's assume just. Like the movies. Thank You it. We. Couldn't, do it each, and every high. With. You, you. Will be so clueless. Oh. A, lot. Okay. I just finished blow-drying, my hair and, I don't blow dry it any particular, way I don't section it off or round brush it or anything I just blow drying it to get it dry so I just rough, dry my hair superfast it takes me like five minutes my, hair is naturally straight, so I don't, really need to blow. It out because I'm, just gonna take a curling iron to it the. Only thing is my hair is pretty frizzy from all of the Hot Tools and coloring I do to it I might, go, get a Brazilian, Blowout, done, because, my new stylist, that. Lives, in, my city I don't have to drive very far anymore. She. Does Brazilian, blowouts and I think she convinced me to do it so I might do that soon just to take like some of the frizz out of my hair, but, anyways I'm going to. Section. My hair in, three sections when I curl it and, I just curl away from my face using this one and all sectioned, off using this so that's what I'm gonna do right now okay I just finished curling my hair I, put a pimple cream on - that's what's all over my face I served, by this stuff I've used it for years and it works really well it's the clean and clear, personnel.
Maximum, Strength. But. This is what my hair looks like after I'm done curling it I haven't brushed it out yet I just kind of like ran my fingers through it a little bit but, I don't necessarily like, how it looks after I've done curling, it I like how it looks like the next day after I've slept on it it's. More relaxed, looking and then I'll just touch up my front few pieces sometimes, I'll go through like the top a little bit if it needs it but. That's why I curled my hair and why I usually do it at night one, because I like how it looks better and two because I'm, a mom of three and I do not have time to curl my hair in the morning so. That's, why I do it at night but now I'm going to pull. Out my iron and, iron. Adams, dress shirt that he's going to wear tomorrow with his suit. Okay. Well we have to leave at. 5:30. In the morning we. Have to be there at 6:35. A.m.. To. Catch the sunrise and, it's. 42, minutes, away from our house that's what it says right now so. Just. To make sure to. Count, four I don't think there's going to be traffic, but. Just to make sure we're there on time I want to leave, like no later than like 5:35. So. Um. Have. To wake up at like, 4:00. Because. I'm gonna curl Bailey's, hair I'm gonna have her wear her hair down. With. That headband, I showed you guys. So. I, need, to wake up at 4:00 to get myself ready and. Then. I'll curl. Bailey's, hair and get the kids ready, but, all the prep that I'm doing tonight should, hopefully. Make our morning run pretty, smooth well make sure that's on I just, washed out my Starbucks cup that I got yesterday. So. Adam can use it for tomorrow morning, and I got my reasonable, one and when I order this drink so I'm, gonna make us coffee for. The ride down there to our shoot because we're definitely going to be needing it we're. Probably gonna use our espresso. Pods, which are the blue ones right there maybe. But. I'm gonna leave the cups right here so. I can make our coffees first thing when we wake up okay we are out the door with, ten minutes to spare almost forgot the camera though, waiting. For me in the car. Got my slippers on because it's cold. Okay. Well we're back home now from getting our photos taken, Greyson, is down for a nap and Shea is playing behind me with her lol dolls Adam, and his mom just took Bailey. To her soccer game I think this is one of her last games I think this is the finals, so only. A few more Saturday's left of soccer but, Charlene. Which is Adams mom was, super excited to go watch her play Grayson. Was beyond tired so he needed to come home and take a nap I wasn't about to drag him out and, sit. For a couple hours on the sidelines to watch her practice. And they do a practice, before the. Actual, game so we're there for like two, and a half almost three hours what. Other. Sword. A. Sword. Okay. I see. But yes since it's such a cold morning I didn't want to have to drag them out to, watch, her, practice in her game because usually were there for like at least two and a half hours and it's, just freezing outside so it, was best for me to just stay home with, them but, I'm sure Bailey. Is loving, having her grandma there watching her but Shay's content right now playing with her lol, dolls so what. I'm gonna do in the meantime is hang, up the girls dresses, on the hangers that they provided and. Package. Everything up in the garment bags and, get, it ready to go so that I can drop it off in the mail first thing Monday morning, everything, comes in the garment bag that you're gonna need to send back there's a label and everything, so, it's really easy, I just, package it back up and then I'll stick this little sticker, on. Top of it and then, throw it in the mail so. Yeah. The 11th is when I need to get, it in the mail bike. I'm. Boiling some water right, now I'm about to throw these four cheese at raviolis, in for the girls Shay's. Starting to get hungry and Bailey will be home in like 20, minutes so I'm gonna cook this up for them for lunch. I'm. Gonna heat up some of this alfredo, sauce in a second - and then I'll top it with some Parmesan cheese and, then, I'll give them some raspberries, on the side to go with it okay lunch is done it took me like two seconds to make but, I always keep these raviolis. On hand in the fridge because this is something that the girls will always eat, and always the olive - they love these raviolis, and I find them at Target but, I'm I'm sure they sell them like at every grocery store but.
I Think it's just nice, to like switch it up from their usual mac and cheese because sometimes like they won't even eat mac and cheese but, they'll always eat these raviolis, Joan. Yeah. Everybody, good to see you this beautiful. Sunday. Monday, Saturday. Right. Yeah, Saturday. Going. To. Going. To soccer with my beautiful mom hi. Everybody, however, she's, the best playing, the ligers today Tigers. Versus, the ligers. I'd. Say it's a pretty big game you know it's the playoffs, we. Lost zero well. With us eight to zero last time so hopefully, we don't suck that bad this time, good. Thing I've been, hanging. Out baling in the backyard and teaching her everything I know, which.

A. What. Did I write I wrote an essay like five pages on the struggles of parenting. Talked. About resiliency, and all this other good stuff and. Like. Last night, we've. Been having like a huge issue with Bailey back, talking and like we'll tell her to do something she'll she'll, be like like won't do it or do something else last night I just kind of sat her down and said Bailey, you. Know why do you why, do you do these things I broke. Out all the dr. Phil moves that I knew and she's like I want to do you. Know what I want to do and. I was like Bailey I understand. That but you're young. Mom. And dad are older, and we have a lot more experience and like when we tell you to do something it's, because we know what's best for you and. Although. She might, not have 100 cent grasp it I feel like it. Helped, a little bit like she she. Understood, what I meant she's a lot better this morning so. I think every time she doesn't listen you. Know sit her down and remind her that we're, we're, trying to do what's best for her I don't know if any of you parents out there on the struggle bus. Like. We have been because Bailey's be honest with you she's been a super, good kid I heard to our live until recently it's. Been a little rough you. Know just sit them down talk to him you. Know figure out why they're doing what they're doing and I don't just like explain, to them why it's important, to, listen to their parents there's no manual to parenting it's it's, hard it's it's not easy it's like it's, different for every situation every kid but I feel, like sharing this might help someone else out there so my, mom I'm, gonna miss her yeah, I'm, gonna miss you it. Was fun, as. It was. I'm. Gonna point this at me. Baby. Okay. I. Leave. A poster, or you could what. If, I live closer you could just. Get, room and board. Grayson. Sure yeah, there we go. There's.
