Vlogemotion - RAGE!


So today is Tim's first Vlogemotion carnival @ Fort Thompson! You have to link up and check everyone's out...this is gonna be a blast!!! =)

Take a gander at my 1st ever LIVE video on my blog...a couple of things to note. I did this ONE time only. I don't have time for multiple takes...so Regis and Kelly...if you are seeing this....CALL ME!!! LOL!

My video is a little blurry because I use my camera and I guess I did not focus the lens...WHOOPSIE!!!

My video is about 2 minutes so it might take a couple of minutes to load on your browser...if so, open up another window and Blog Hop...but be sure to come back!!! =)

Please leave me feedback! I really want to get better at this!


40 CHEERS from the Crowd!:

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Dudes...I look like a total wreck on this thing....Too late to go back now....can anyone hand me the Vicodin on their counter???

Tim said...

Dude.... The crowd goes wild and crazy!!! That was great! Such a nice touch actually putting on the goggles.

I didnt think it looked out of focus at all. Most videos once uploaded to blogger will lose some quality and thus look a bit fuzzy.

I smiled the whole way thru and even laughed a few times. This was a great vlog post and I commend your bravery. You have earned your vloggy wings. See you just made me think of something so i will ask you. Do you think people would be interested in having an award to post if they wanted declaring that they vlogged? It could say something like "courage lives here, Im a vlogger!" Of course I could come up with something a bit more original.

Anyway, let me know what you think. I cant wait to see your vlog next week. You are great on camera. Kelly's got nothing on you.

And to you MIMI.... because I know your gonna see this... We're waiting! LOL

Love and Prayers,

Tim

He And Me + 3 said...

Girl you are one hot mama! I love that plain ole shirt! I will keep count of the laundry loads this week for us. But after one night..I had a load. Good Lord my family is dirty too.
You did great! Lovin the emotion. Model is having a melt down right now I may have to blog her. Holy catfish batman...she is working it.

Nikki B. said...

AWESOME!

Kameron said...

You'e so freakin cute with that accent!! Man, I want an accent, just not the east coast one. Nope, sounds trashy on girls. Ok, you guys are all brave, I'll do one tomorrow and post it!

Courtney and the Boys said...

That was hilarious! I so love that you sported the goggles. Nice look. :) Good work!

Diane said...

you are soooo funny! great job!

i really hate laundry!

Melissa, Multi-Tasking Mama said...

Sorry, hun, I took all my Vicodin just thinking about posting a vlog ;p

Joan said...

Brave of you. Really. I would be a total wreck in front of the camera. Great job and we are a family of four. 2 teenage girls and we do at least 8 -9 loads every weekend not counting bedding. But I've never had ski googles in the wash. I have had lipgloss and it stained everything in the load.

Thanks for sharing,
Blessings,

Maria@Conversations with Moms said...

Amazing. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Very entertaining and creative.

heidi said...

You ROCK my dirty socks! LOL You look AWESOME in that bad boy. I think you should wear it every time. I totally love that you put it on. Props make it easier, eh?

E @ Scottsville said...

OMGoodness! That was so AWESOME!!! I don't think I have the guts, but here are my thoughts:

You were spunky, have an accent that I wouldn't have expected, you made me laugh out loud, I clapped a time or two DURING your vlog, I think you're even better looking in REAL LIFE than in your pics, and I so hope I get the courage to actually participate at least ONCE so people can see ME like I just saw you: FOR REAL!

That was AWESOME, Tarah! Great job, well spoken, and not shy or weird at all!!!

Loved MEETING THE REAL YOU FINALLY!!!

Stephanie said...

Girl you rocked!!!!! You were sooo good at that :) I'm with Mimi I'm going to have to keep a laundry count this week too although I have two more than you..we'll have to see.

So that was awesome and you did great..my husband even cranked his neck over to see it :)

Anonymous said...

Hi Tarah. It's great seeing you so Vlog-E-Motional! This is a great idea. It really shows off your fun personality. I'm totally with ya on the laundry rage. My laundry basket is a bottomless pit to nowhere. As soon as I think I've got it all under control, there it goes again over flowing. Anyway...I love the goggles. That cracked me up!

BTW, that is Super Man ice cream. It's my little guy's favorite too.

Dawn @ P.S.He loves you.. said...

well first if that's as "raging" as you get I bet your family loves loves loves you!

9 loads is allot..and now that I think about it I do a load everyday..so yeah we go through 7 a week family of five..

Those googles where a GREAT addition to your vlog!

Rhonda said...

Hey,
I just saw you at Mimi's. I had to watch your vlog too. You are too cute. Laundary...I hear you!! Loved the goggles! You were stylin!

Thanks for coming over and following!

momstheword said...

First, I almost feel like I know you. I have seen your comments before, your name is easy to remember.

Your comments are so cute and funny and I keep thinking I'd have to pop over here and "meet" you!

Loved your vlog! Especially loved my husband walking by the computer and saying "What are you LOOKING at?" You were wearing the goggles at the time....hehehe!

momstheword said...

BTW, I don't have any Vicodin. Will Midol do?

Heather said...

You are hilarious, girl!!! I totally was NOT expecting you to pop up with those goggles. What freaks your boys are!!! How the heck did goggles get in the laundry??? And how did they get past you?? : )

Love your Vlog! And seriously, you SHOULD do your own show. You're hilarious and I love, love your accent!!!

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

I love it. It is so great to put a voice to the blog...Yeah for VLOG... You looked great, and I can totally relate. We must be tied for the dirtiest family. No joke, my hubby must change three times a day, and the kids, well, two year old boy..enough said. I need to figure out how to do this so I can play along...

Sneaky Momma said...

Great vlog! You did such a good job. I have to say that we might be real close to nine laundry loads every week ourselves! :)

Carebear said...

That was AWESOME. You just seemed so comfortable and natural - it was really fun to watch. Love your midwest accent. You are so stinkin' cute - total Sara Evans lookalike, which I'm sure you hear all the time. I'm also feeling rage at the laundry too. And the dishes. And the toilets. And the car. Why won't these stupid things clean themselves?!?!?

Alicia said...

Tara...how cute are you!!!!!! Oh my gosh...that was so funny about being "dirty!" It's so neat to put a voice and face w/ the blog!!!!

Great job, girl!

Blessed Mom of 8 said...

Tarah - I adore it!

You are so funny!

Happy early Mother's Day!
Love and hugs,

Woolverton Girl said...

You shirt is cute, not plain & old. & you are soooo brave putting those googles on on video for everyone to see. I hope there is a good explaination for them being in the laundry. I'm totally curious as to what they were doing there.

~Laura said...

Great vlog. I was cracking up! I have 2-3 loads per week, for just me.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Laundry makes us all RAGE I think. It never ends...

You were rockin those googles, girl!

Beth in NC said...

Ha, you did a great job! Leaving the lenses on was a hoot! Mine is so boring. Come on over and take a listen ...

April said...

How did you possibly manage to do that in one take? AMAZING! Your vlog is so good...love your accent! Give yourself a gigantic pat on the back...mine will be posted by today's end...hopefully!

Kelly said...

YOu are totally cracking me up!! LOVE IT!!

Beth E. said...

How cute you are! I loved your vlog! I came over from Tim's to check out what you recorded. I'm so glad I did. :o)

I have two boys and a hubby...we KEEP a perpetual pile of laundry in our laundry room. We easily wash 8-9 loads of laundry a week when our college boy is home.

I am encouraging you to check all pockets before you wash clothes! I'm telling you this from experience. After washing markers, gum, earthworms (yes, EARTHWORMS), notes from school, etc. I can tell you that taking a few moments to check before you wash could potentially save you HOURS from a laundry disaster. We had an entire load of clothing ruined after the marker mishap.

I love sense of humor. We moms of boys have to have a little humor just to make it through the day, eh?

I tried my first video today...you did a much better job than I!!!

Blessings...

Jane Anne said...

This Vlog thing is new to me. WAY TO GO!! I loved the video. So fun to see a real person! And, oh girl, I have so many laundry issues. I have 3 boys and a little girl... and a husband. Nuff said, right!??

wife.mom.nurse said...

You are cracking me up. It was so much fun to see and hear you, I was inspired and decided to join!!!

Loved the Goggles!!!

Melyssa said...

That is so great Tarah! I loved the topic. I have to say that laundry is my LEAST favorite thing to do- and it is the one thing that Rich doesn't mind so he tends to do it more then I do! I got a chuckle that the goggles went in the washer! That is priceless! Keep up the great blog!

Billy Coffey said...

Goggles and laundry. That totally rocked.

And you rock, too. Because I'd never have the guts to do this.

Fresh Mommy said...

You're so brave for posting a video!! You go girl.. and I think you looked great!

HILARIOUS loved it!

Yeah 9 loads a week-sounds like our house. We (famiy of 4) do 1-2 loads per day.

CRAZY

mama's smitten said...

Awesome! So cool to meet you this way. Sorry to hear about your Rage!!! But those goggles were too funny!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

That was great....You have a greaet blog and I will be back often.....I love your blog name.
I am still new to the land of blog, but so loving reading others stories. Everyone has a story and so many of them are so touching....
Hope you will stop by for a visit.

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh my gosh! You are so pretty. And totally skinnier on camera than you look in your picture. I am serious. I think you are perfect : ). Really perfect : )

Laundry is ridiculous at our house too. Can I tell you what Gary does? He takes up a whole load with his sweatshirt, his sweatpants his socks and underwear. I am not even kidding. Sometimes I want to punch him.

In a friendly way of course. A very friendly way : ).
