7. Give at least one sincere compliment a day.

You need to post the roll recipe that you guys got from that guy last Thanksgiving...I want it on the blog! I can't remember the guys name. Starts with a J? Good luck on your goals. Post your thanksgiving favors too- before thanksgiving- I might want to copy them! :) :)

ditto on what Rachel said. You have to make JD's rolls--they work every time. I made them at our last soup Sunday, and everyone said they were the best rolls they'd ever had. I was a little embarrassed since Dave's sister, Cathy, usually makes the rolls. I want ideas for Thanksgiving favors, too, since you're the "crafty" one. And how are you losing weight with all the Halloween candy lying around? You must have worked up some serious discipline. Good job.

OK I'll start from the beginning... the kids looked SO cute for Halloween!!!!! I'm glad you got to get together with friends and family for an awesome holiday.
Ethan has SO much hair, but it is so beautiful!!!!
You look AMAZING I can't even believe how much you have changed in 10 months since i last saw you, you go girl!!!!
The crafts are so crafty :)
Do Claire's kids do crafts with you every time or just sometimes?
Good luck with your goals, but I truly hope to hear from you before the end of November about how things are going :)
