Alexa stop. you gonna put on some sandals? hi! hi! bye! we go when we can it’s about to go…. alright we are headed to the livestock show, we are gonna check out the
livestock show which I haven’t been to in, I don’t know, eight or nine years? I think
the last time I went was when I did my very first vlog which was a livestock
show vlog. and we lived like right across from the stadium and we walked there. and yeah it’s just memories–do you remember that babe? yeah it was a really long time
ago! so that was the last time I’ve been to the actual livestock show we can see like
the baby ducks and all the cattle everything’s we wanna show Harper livestock show just one so sorry this is a Texas tradition okay agency our first first rodeo and they said is where all the way is it
in here that’s a shop so I don’t want to go to shop let’s go see the animals
first while she’s still awake I look at all this beautiful artwork sundry you’ll may not know this but the rodeo
has a lot of support for education Texas youth scholarships some rights going
into your first livestock show 2019 and yeah I don’t think they’re actual
rabbits are they oh wow yeah they are actual rabbits you see the red bunny let’s just say
take a log of land here say little bunny see the bunnies we’ll get her out in a little bit I want
to show her that no big step first petting zoo because the petting zoo there chickens is that a chicken you like it all right we’ve been waiting
for this she has been since we went to the ranch tired how pretty this one is a lot of teenagers learn a lot about
agriculture by what when you’re a teenager and you do the
agriculture thing with the raising or 4-h club 4-h Wow look at that big
black one there that’s so pretty really beautiful cattle hi beautiful in case any of you guys were wondering
there is a place to pump or breastfeed at the rodeo that is really awesome way
to go way to go Houston Livestock Show way past her bedtime Batgirl tired alright let’s exit stage right well and all I’d say pretty fun
definitely a lot better than I remember it
about my way Harper taken on their hand
you know what agriculture is all about it smells so good they have food outside or should we go
inside here and get some food real quick oh yeah there she needs to go to bed so
let’s just get some food now all right we’re back home and that was very fun so
now we’re just gonna chill out a little bit here at home looking on the Tanner
side for what I normally am because I used some of the San Tropez classic Tam
it is in this like marshmallow scent I will link it down below it’s delicious I
didn’t smell bad we once it was really really nice and it’s just a classic tan
and I’ll link this fun watch down below too it’s really fun oh my mom make it
out today I’ll just link everything down below how’s that yeah mouth got
something on your mouth okay bye bye alright so we’re back home we all had a
nap well I didn’t really have a nap because I never nap when the rest of the
family naps I have to like I have to like chill like awake like I have to
like emotionally wind down from the chaos of the day and I can’t do that by
napping for some reason like I just can no clothes off I should get into the dog
food so I’m gonna film a video now that was a person sometimes these selfie
things that flip up are just more disturbing because a toddler walking
everywhere now I mean she would prefer she’s just walking she’s not crawling
anymore she’s only walking and I’m really proud of her for that because
she’s walking and she’s doing it really well some baby’s walking really really
early she’s walked kind of within the normal time frame maybe unlike the
leader spectrum and she just is super steady super sure of herself of course
she falls and stuff but she’s just very careful which I like that was a strangest little gasp I’ve
ever heard poor baby you look sounded so sad yes that’s your diaper bag you want
to pull it up no pull it down yeah good job is that is that our old is that our
old car seat that we’re gonna put up in the Attic today yeah
all right so Harper is woken up from her nap and she’s been fed and I filmed a
video and I’ve edited the video and I’ve done the thumbnail and I’ve published
not published it live but it will be going live soon now we’re trying to
figure out what to do we’re gonna go out to eat since it’s no I kind of just want
to stay home play some music on the a LAX and um you
know like light some candles like put on the music have the ambience we just love
weekend’s where we just sit there like open the patio doors and just have the
music playing on the system and you know like drink a glass of white wine you
know it’s just oh there’s something really nice about that while cooking and
just hanging out with us as a family hanging out with us so I’m gonna do what
he went to the grocery store with Harper Harper gloves going in the grocery store
with him and it’s kind of their thing he loves going in the grocery store I
absolutely detest it comment down below if you’re a lover or a hater of grocery
stores I try to do instacart whenever I can because I hate going to the grocery
store but if you love it put it down in the comments if you hate it also like me
please please put it in the comments so I don’t feel like such a I don’t know
such an anti mother I guess cuz I hate doing it but anyway so I’m gonna go at
what I know he loves to have like the I don’t know like the music going and have
a nice clean surface to cook from and I don’t know what he’s making but I’m
gonna just try and help out and be a team player and just clean out clean up
this kitchen area so we’re gonna go ahead and do a quick little clean with he’s gonna definitely want to use this
cutting board so I’m just going to clean this off before him Wrigley ready for
him to use all right so this is the scene I have
laid out I’ve got fire is going to fires one inside and one outside and then it
smells nice in here I’ve like sprayed some like fresh herbal smells get the
get the palate going for cooking and I’ve got jazz playing over the stereo
this is just what he loves he loves this is his element I can’t wait to surprise
him I wanted to have a chat with you guys
because I want to convey a sense of realism about my life here you know it’s
I don’t know how else to say this but HP and I regularly sit down
you know when we’re absorbed in a moment and we say I can you believe that this
is our life like can you believe like it’s so sometimes most the time it’s not
but sometimes it’s just this snapshot of a moment that feels so unreal and happy
and wonderful and we’re like so thrilled with the life we’ve been able to create
and I just want you to know that I would have never thought even 10 years ago
that this would be my life and that I would have this wonderful house and this
beautiful daughter and this wonderful husband and a great job because so much
despite growing up living a life of privilege there were a lot of struggles
a lot of issues those of you who probably know but maybe you don’t my
brother died when I was in medical school he committed suicide and I had
some struggles even before that that I haven’t even talked about on my channel
but it’s something I do want to talk about eventually it’s definitely
something if you guys are interested in it but I just want you to know that
whatever you’re going through and you feel like you aren’t gonna make it or
you feel like you’re never gonna get there
or you feel like everybody else has this wonderful life and not me know that if I
were if I were doing the same thing I was doing ten years ago now I probably
would feel even more discouraged because of social media but because I started
all this before social medias even began I was a blogger before Twitter was
invented or before Instagram was invented just know that hard work pays
off and perseverance above all sometimes it doesn’t even just hard work it’s just
sticking through it and keep on going even when you feel like nothing is
coming of it or you feel like nobody’s ever gonna let you in or you feel like
you’re never gonna get there the hard you know the light at the end of the
tunnel is so far away just know that it is attainable eventually and it’s worth
it whatever you’re struggling for you’re you’re gonna get there and I just wanted
to say that because I know that the social media is full of a lot of things
and images that depict like perfect lives and stuff and there are truly
moments when HB and I look at each other more like is this really our life we
don’t share that part on social media because a lot of the times that would be
met with oh you know you self-important snob type of comment but really to be
truly appreciative and happy for what you have and what you’ve what you are
able to attain and what you owe and all of their goals and all of your hard work
and your blood sweat and tears for but more than a decade has has amounted to
is it’s really something to behold and something that you should always
appreciate always so yeah with that I’m gonna leave you here like I do most of
my videos and I try to remember to say remember to be yourself and own it
because that’s the best way to live your life
and it’s taken me decades to realize that and now that I’m doing that I’ve
never been happier in all honesty I’ve never been happier so remember to be
yourself and own it thank you for watching I love you guys bye

100 thoughts on “RODEO AND HEART TO HEART | VLOG #13.2019

  1. You going to the Houston Livestock & Rodeo brought back LOTS of fond memories. My son showed Hereford Cattle there for several years. As a side note you may be interested in–most of the Cattle that are shown have top genetics and have either been purchased or 'Raised on the Ranch' from top Genetics that have cost the parents of the kids showing anywhere from $2,000-$100,000. Our top dollar Donor came from Montana for $25,000 while purchasing one of our Bulls ran $35,000. The saying is 'You have to spend Big to play with the Big Boys' and Houston is one of the top Shows in the U.S. We haven't regretted anything that we spent on our Son and our Cattle during his Show Years–we have lifelong friendships we formed traveling all over the U.S. and now my son is a Large Animal Veterinarian and my DIL is an Equine Veterinarian and they own their own clinic here in Texas. My husband and I are so very proud of them both and the work ethics they practiced during their 'Showing' years truly gave them the tools needed to be successful in their adult life. Thanks for showing the livestock portion of the Rodeo-I'll have many fond memories to think about today!

  2. Thank you for your lovely messege, I lost my husband of 47 years last May, and, one of my brothers two weeks ago, also to suicide. I'm pretty proud of being on my own, yes, I'm a lower income person, but, I'm doing it.

  3. Thanks for sharing and the great uplifting chat, Kristina. I love seeing good things happen to good people.

  4. I think a marriage video would be cool. Talk about effective communication, what works for your family with the busy schedules, how you work on each other's love languages. I appreciate the realness at the end of the video and would love to see more of that!

  5. I absolutely hate going to the grocery store! My husband doesn’t really care for it either but he’ll go lol We definitely eat out more than often. Not a great cook either but my husband is but we’re never home for him to really cook 👨‍🍳

  6. Also, I really appreciate your honesty about your real life! I feel like I’m in that transitional stage where I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel but still feel the presence of the grit of life. It’s such a hard stage but better than the last stage of feeling hopelessness!

  7. I needed your motivational speech at the end. I just found out I’m pregnant and I’m not really happy about it. My husband is excited but I’m having mixed feelings.

  8. I can relate so much. I lost my sister to a homicide and went through a very low place. Today I can honestly say I am happy and so grateful for the life I’ve been able to create with my husband and family❤️

  9. Thanks for sharing hard times and struggles too! We all have them and it always feels good to be reminded that we can overcome them. Without them such moments of deep gratitude wouldn´t be possible. Love from Germany!

  10. Used to love grocery shopping. Now I hate it. Nothing happened…it was a gradual thing. Now I mostly do curbside pickup. I’ve tried delivery and loved it, but the markups on the food and the fees were just too much for me.

  11. Been watching you for quite some time! Thank you for opening up at the end! I would love to hear more about what you went through during medical school and how you overcame it!

  12. Kristina, you are more precious to me each video. You and H.B. and Harper deserve all the happiness your hearts can hold. Thank you for letting us in on some of your life. I would love to know more about your younger years.❤️🙏🏻

  13. You and HB are hard workers and your video shows that you take nothing for granted. God bless you and your family! Your love for Harper is beautiful.❤️

  14. I just adore you , you are such a humble person. I know how hard things can get it seems like me and my husband struggle so hard sometimes and it can really get you down. But we try not to let it get the best of us. We are very thankful for what we have. Our family and our grandchildren keep us going. With the help of God.

  15. Hi Kristina! I don’t often comment, but your message near the end of your video really echoed an almost exact conversation my husband and I had yesterday. Your life and my life are not mirror images, but the gratitude we have for realizing at least some of our goals (which may be modest to some, but seemed like a chasm we would never be able to cross when we started out 25+ years ago). That you don’t take your life for granted, despite the obvious hard work both of you have done; that you delight in the everyday coffee, or squeal with joy at getting a delivery from a sponsor; that you share advice on success, or distress of setbacks. — all of these reasons are why I watch your channel. Congrats on living a life with goals, celebrating the hard won successes and recognizing that even though you’ve worked you butts off to achieve those goals — understanding that not everyone that strives with all their might wins the day. And when you share that you are grateful, we know it’s not a boast – but an encouragement that sometimes we do succeed. Congrats!

  16. I hate grocery shopping and always buy a bunch of extra stuff we don’t need (mostly desserts.) Now my husband does the food shop and sticks to the list.

  17. Great Positive Message!!! Always Look On The Bright Side Although At Times You May Have To Look Very Hard To Find It ……….. BUT ………. It IS There!!!

  18. I love grocery shopping!! But I love it most right after I drop my kids off at school, and I’m the only one along with a few peeps! It’s quicker lol…. thank you for being real, it just takes people who work hard to get to a place where you can feel good about the life you have! I think it’s wonderful to strive for the better! 😃🙌🏻 we are always grateful for the live we live as well, but we work hard for it and I wouldn’t have it any other way 👍🏻♥️

  19. Hi Kristina I enjoy your vlogs and Harper is adorable. I have two grown kids myself. My son is in grad school now but before that he was trying to get to medical school right after college. He scored really high in mcat test and started applying. He applied the first applications and it wasn't cheap but I was excited for him and I helped him pay for it. Right after that he changed his mind and got into really bad depression for almost a year. He got help right away and he's fine now. I feel guilty somehow because I was pushing him to pursue the medical field. I just wanted to say that I was disappointed but his health was more important. I still feel guilt but I learned that you should let your children pursue their own path in life.

  20. Love your talk at the end. You must always remember you didn’t just stumble into your life. You worked very hard for it and please be proud of all that you both accomplished.

  21. OMG….neither of us want to go to the grocery store. Yuck! Love online grocery ordering and curbside pickup!
    Your heart felt talk at the end was so sweet and uplifting! We all need to look at what we have and be thankful for what we have. Life is a blessing!

  22. I think that is why I like watching you so much you worked hard yes, but also you recognize you are lucky, I think that makes all the difference in the world. Nothing is more of a turn off than when someone says i have done everything right, and where that might be the truth there was luck thrown in. At any rate. really enjoy you and your family so thank you all for sharing.

  23. That's great advice especially for younger people or anyone starting something new or different!
    I think it's so wonderful that you and HB are able to realize how fortunate you both are, that you both have worked so hard and that neither of you take it for granted!

  24. I HATE grocery shopping. My husband on the other hand loves it, and will go to 4 stores to get the right ingredients and best prices.

  25. Hi Kristina Braly, I wanted to ask your opinion about the anesthesia field. I am currently going to school to become an anesthesiologist Assistant. I realize there is a restriction on assistants because you can only work in certain states and certain hospitals. What is your opinion when comparing CRNA’s to anesthesiologists assistants? Thank you.

  26. That eyeshadow made your blue eyes sparkle more than usual! It looks soooo pretty on you. Also I just got into Instacart and I think it’s going to be a thing from now on because it feels amazing to not waste 1-2 hours walking up and down aisles.

    Finally, I want to thank you for opening up with us. I’m so grateful to you for sharing your life and positivity with us on this platform. With all the trash that’s on this website you truly are a hidden gem here!

  27. Thank you for the heart to heart talk! I really appreciate the real side of your life, and I think that's where the valuable content is these days, to be honest. We're already bombarded with countless curated and scripted versions of lives and personalities on social media (which is why studies show that social media can cause feelings of depression, inferiority, and insecurity…even for people who have realistically good lives). So the more real you are, the better! You also are successful, so I think you could be a real mentor and inspiration to people out there who are struggling or who come from less privileged backgrounds and simply don't know how to take the first steps forward and build a career. Even for overachievers, it's hard to continually stay motivated and push the envelope to new achievements (and for perfectionists, there's also the fear of getting started due to the ultimate fear of failure). Since you seem very outgoing and motivated, I'd love to hear some of your tips and suggestions (e.g., how you started vlogging, how you taught yourself to edit while doing everything else, how you stay motivated, how you make the time and get the energy to do everything, etc)! That said, you don't need to divulge more than you're comfortable with (as you alluded to some serious issues), and we still love your regular vlogs and luxury hauls, too! So film and share whatever you think is best, and I'm sure it will be great! 🙂

  28. Thanks Kristina! That heartfelt message at the end was exactly what I needed, and I think a whole bunch of us needed to hear. Perfect timing! Lots of love your way! 😘

  29. 💚💚💚 wow, this message really touched me. Thank you so much, having some real family struggles now and this meant a lot!

  30. Wow! Thank you so much! I want to send this heart-to-heart message to my son to listen to. He would think I was crazy if I told him to watch a vlog about a family taking their one year old to the rodeo BUT that message at the end…girl, you are wise beyond your years. I am 58 years old and just figured out some of what you talked about after turning 50! I feel like I have just listened to a sermon that truly spoke to me. So many people need to hear what you just said. I, too, grew up LONG before social media and I am so thankful it was not around when I was trying to find my way. Although I love most of advances in our world today, I believe social media has been a negative impact on many. Those “many” are those who feel less than or struggle with self esteem (I don’t usually like psycho babble). I worry about what things are going to be like when my grandchildren are trying to make their way in this world.
    I appreciate you so much…I appreciate your “real ness”, your honesty, your work ethic, your kindness to others, and your relevance. I have commented many times after watching your vlogs and I have told so many people about you. Although I am old enough to be your mother, I am in a totally different career and I am certain we do not share political views, I can still watch you and appreciate you. Please keep filming and YES, I would love to know how you grew up and I did not know your brother committed suicide. I respect your parents for the strength they had to go on with their lives and still find joy (I have seen joy on their faces when they are with Harper) through their heartache. The “relationship” I have with you is one I wish this world could understand….we are all different, we do NOT need to tear down those who have different views/beliefs from us. We can learn so much from others. Okay, I could go on and on. You opened a can of worms for me and I need to step down off my soapbox! Have a great day dear Kristina and thank you for making this YouTube world a better place. XOXO

  31. 4-H is so popular where I live in Northeastern Ohio, that our school system doesn’t go back from summer break until after Labor Day, when all the county fairs are over. Too many kids would miss school for being involved in the fair, so they just wait. 😊

  32. I totally get grocery store anxiety. I use the curbside service as much as possible, and want to try out Shipt too!

  33. Love the message at the end. My husband and I do the same thing and it helps us to stay humble and not sweat the small stuff. 💛

  34. You are so inspiring Kristina! Thank you for being you and sharing your heart with us. You make the world a better place.

  35. Great vlog as usual! And a great message at the end. I definitely feel overwhelmed, especially lately knowing I will have to write my Internal Med board exam with an infant baby at that time. If you have any tips for studying with a newborn (for a first time mom), please share!

    Oh and I only enjoy grocery shopping in the morning or evening when it is not busy, and as long as I have a list and know exactly what to get! x

  36. Great ending ❤️ I am going in for an emergency hysterectomy completely unplanned in less than 48hrs, and that is exactly what I needed to hear.

  37. Kristina, love your message at the end. It was very positive. Your right, everyone has their own path and everyone follows it differently. It’s nice to stop and reflect on our accomplishments and feel good about what we’ve done. Or not (yet). As far as shopping goes, I really don’t like it, i don’t like cooking either. But there are times when the mood strikes and it’s not too bad. Take care Kristina. By the way, Harper is growing too fast.

  38. Not a fan of going grocery shopping, but I do like Costco. Glad I'm catching up on your videos. They always put a smile on my face. You remind me of my daughter. She is still in college, but her trajectory is so very similar and she is a natural, classical beauty with a kind heart like you.

  39. Thank you, you always know the right thing to say to make people feel better. You are a amazing person😘❤️😊

  40. I hate the grocery store too! And thanks for the message at the end. At the end of the day no one is perfect and we all have our struggles, but it is worth it in the end! 💞

  41. It's so important to be grateful for and acknowledge the blessings we have. Sometimes we forget and get caught up in every day life, but it only takes a short look into others lives who are a less fortunate (children in third world countries without clean water), or those battling serious illness, to remind us of the blessings we do have.

  42. I don’t mind the grocery store, however last weekend I decided to go just me and all 4 of my kids (11,7 and 17 month old twins) which was interesting to say the least and also a reminder of why they usually stay home with their dad when I have to go grocery shopping

  43. Thank you for that lovely message at the end of the vlog, Kristina. I really needed to hear it. I'm in medical school, and the journey has been certainly trying at times. And hearing what you said was exactly what I needed to hear. It's sometimes so hard to see past the hardships of schooling as I'm sure you remember well. Just hoping this all pays off sooner than later.

  44. Such a nice video showing Harper’s first livestock show. Your little family is so special and all the hard work you and HB do every day to manifest the life you want is so nice to see. It’s so nice to hear how grateful and appreciative of this life you have. Congratulations on your accomplishments. You deserve them. I Always enjoy your videos.

  45. You have no idea how much I needed to hear your talk at the end of the vlog. Looking back at the last 10 years, I've gone from a child to an adult and so much is different. The last year and a half I've struggled with depression due to heartbreak and repeatedly letting the same person hurt me over and over. But I know day by day, I get stronger. And I'm determined to look back in 10 years and see progress in my life both personally and professionally. Keep up the great content!

  46. DETEST the grocery store. I’m a mom to a 6 year old and 3 year old twins. No can do grocery store. HEB delivery saves time and money (no unwanted items thrown in cart by little ones). I’m a better mom without the stress of the “in-store experience.”

  47. I appreciate your expression of gratitude for the blessings in your life. Gratitude is what helps me get through the tough times. I also lost a family member to suicide. It was 11 years ago and the hurt never completely heals, but gratitude for my blessings and determination to be the best that I can be for the rest of my family gets me through the “flashbacks” and PTSD of the experience. Thank you so much for sharing your feelings.

  48. you know kristinia i dont know if youll see this or not but im going through a very dificult time right now personally and educationally failing a class and living in a not so hot area and when ever i look at your vlogs i go that is how succussfull i wanna be just like kristina and when you had that heart to heart i was playing you in the background while i was studying and just bursted out crying im so sorry for what youve been through you make me wanna work even harder and as you said "perservere" even when its tough

  49. I'm a new subscriber and this is only the third video of yours I watched and it made cry a little. I really needed to listen to what you said. I feel like I'm gonna be a loyal subscriber.

  50. I loved this vlog!! You have such a sweet family!!! Just discovered your channel and I love your videos ❤️ you are sooo inspiring! Thanks for the encouraging message !!!

  51. Wow!! Thank you for admitting you came from a life of privilege. I feel like some people don't recognize that. So much respect for you!! I think we all have to remember no matter a person's background, we all have our own struggles.

  52. Harper is so so sweet. I commend you for talking about your lives in that capacity at the end. Coming from “privilege” does not invalidate struggles you have had. I am so sorry you lost your brother. You have done very well for yourself despite your struggles, I’m so happy for you & I so appreciate your genuine interest in others’ well being as well

  53. Love this video!  Especially how grateful you are for your life.  I am so sorry that you lost your brother.  I can't even imagine.  My heart hurts just thinking what it would be like if I lost my brother and my heart hurts for you.  No matter what everyone's path is in life, or what environment they were born into, nobody's life is perfect and we all have struggles.  It is how we grow from it and continue to live a full life that will bring us some sort of peace that matters. On a lighter note…I am like you…The adult thing I hate to do most is go to the grocery store. I wish I could pay someone to grocery shop for me.  My husband goes for me every now and then but I get 50 phone calls from the grocery store asking questions.  I appreciate the effort but it winds up being easier to go with him.

  54. Wonderful message, Kristina. I am 67, and I have learned that even the most perfect seeming lives, have experienced heartbreak, grief, and hopelessness. Enjoy the moments of joy and perfection! BTW, there is nothing I hate more than grocery shopping!
