Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!!

Halloween is my favorite Holiday! Any chance I get to do anything Halloween related, I'm all over it!

We decided to paint pumpkins this year instead of carving because of my kids age, probably never again, we'll stick to carving. It took forever!!

Last night we went to our churches trunk or treat! Here are some pictures of our costumes.

Storm Trooper

Darth Vader

Tonight we'll be going trick or treating around our neighborhood. Instead of Jack, I'll be Darth Vader like my youngest. I'm still trying to convince my husband to dress up too!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!!

Erlacher #2 Gender Reveal

Holly and Mitch are expecting their second baby!

Their first son, Elliot, is best friends with my first born!

We were so excited to be able to attend their gender reveal party to see whether their second child will be a boy or a girl!
(Personally, I was on team boy!)

Here are just a few pictures for you!

 Mom was on team girl, while Dad was on team boy!

It's a boy! 

Big brother as excited as he can be about having a baby brother. 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them, and finding out they were having another son!
Welcome the the mom of two boys club!

Coming from the Heart

(A picture I took on our most recent trip to Disney World, September 2015)

Lately, the thought that keeps coming to my mind has been, what do I want to do with my life?

As a stay at home mom, I have my days where I ask myself, is this all I want to do? Don't get me wrong, being a mother is the greatest gift I could ever ask for, and I still don't feel deserving of it. I love my children with all my heart, but in today's day and is suppose to equal success, right? You get the greatest satisfaction being a mother and it is probably the most stressful job too, but you don't make any money that way. 

Then I realized, I don't care about making tons of money, I want to do what makes me happy! And being a stay at home mom is the perfect job for me. But....being an entrepreneur and a women, I can't just do one thing at a time.

For those who know me, probably see that I change my mind almost every year with what I want to do with myself. I've figured out why, and that is what I am writing about today.
I don't want to stick with one thing, I want to do it all. That's what makes me happy.

First I started Creations by Alison Shane. Then, One Faith Christian Store, Alison Shane Weddings, and Jamberry Nails. Now, I've been doing photography. All while being a wife and mother. I might seem like the most wishy washy person to some, but I see myself as a dreamer. 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, my husband and I had to close One Faith Christian Store, but we are so very thankful for the things we learned in that short year and a half being open.

I still have Creations by Alison Shane and Alison Shane Weddings. I am still an Independent Consultant with Jamberry Nails and I am continuing to grow as a photographer. 

I am using this blog to showcase every aspect of my life. Family, personal, my crafts, my weddings, my Jamberry, and photography. I don't want to do everything separate anymore (it was really difficult to keep up with anyways). 

I look forward in you following my journey of adventure and seeing where it takes me!
