Small Talk Six on Saturdays

As I was checking out all of the blogs I follow, I came across this pretty fun meme from suzy q homemaker. With so much going on in my life, this was a great one to do! Today’s topic is “6 things you’ll miss (or won’t miss) about summer.” You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc The 6 things I will miss about summer: 1. My husband - With him being in Afghanistan, it really stinks. Although he was training alot, he was still in the states... Then, we got to spend a little time with him before he headed over there... So, yes! I miss him the most. 2. The first couple months of my sweet bundle of joys life - I have to say, being a mommy is wonderful! I sit and wonder how in the world did I get so lucky to have such a great husband and such a sweet baby? Granted, I love watching him grow up and it is amazing how much he changes from day to day, but in the beginning when he just played and slept... I miss h

Today was a good day! Let me tell you how it started.. Broxton woke up around 6:45-7:00 We got up and played, ate breakfast and played some more! Then it was time for a quick nap before we went to get the 6 month picture taken. Well, I was rocking Broxton to get him to take his nap (he FIGHTS SLEEP like nothing I have ever seen!)

Yeah, so we went to SEARS, I have to say, Amber takes his pictures and she is GREAT! I spent more money than I wanted (as always!) We came home for lunch... Then we went to go to Wal

So, lets see where to start.. I FINALLY bought Broxton a highchair! Of course, my luck would have it.. I bought it on Friday and then see in the Sunday Sales Paper that it is now on sale for $20.00 cheaper! I'm not going to lie... I sure enough went to customer service and asked for the difference! I told her that I had my receipt, but if that wouldn't work, I would go home and bring the highchair back! :) She said to give her the receipt and she would give me the difference! Needless to say, that $20.00 went right back to Target.... ON DIAPERS! I was pretty happy that I noticed the sale and made the difference count! Anyways.. Over the weekend... We moved Ashton into his first apartment.. Where does the time go? Seems like just yesterday he was just a little one... and now.. he is THE TYPICAL kid brother... I know I said "whatever" alot, but I think he just may beat me on it once it is all said and done! Sometimes I wonder about that kid, but no matter w
