Beth told me a while back that if I got this promotion, we'd have a fiesta. I'm not sure why a fiesta came to mind, but I've got to respect her follow-through.

Congrats on the promotion! Nothing like security with a new baby on the way!

Posted by: Marie at July 16, 2005 05:53 PM

Aw man, so cute! Heh. Trust Beth to live up to her word, eh? And she totally doesn't look as pregnant as we know she is. So at least she won't get people asking her when she's going to pop :)

Posted by: Heather at July 16, 2005 07:40 PM

Not sure how I found your blog but I am so glad I did. For there is nothing like a fiesta to make a girl happy! (how prophetic too as my friend just called and invited me out for mexican! Ole!) Great blog, and I will definitely pop in from time to time. And also, congratulations!

PS Hope your little peanut turns around...

Congratulations on your promotion! I like the fiesta idea. Now there are two hats I want,.. a flamboyant green one (very Harry Potter-esque) and a sombrero.

Posted by: Heather at July 17, 2005 10:03 PM

Those were fab shots, you got a good woman there! You guys are sickenly cute, you realize that right?! You want to make us all jealous and sick with your cuteness. I know your type! :) ahahahahahahaha...

Posted by: Kate at July 18, 2005 03:13 AM

Mrs. RC doesn't look that enormous for being ready to pop any day.

I see in one of the pics you're reading Toyer. He stole my manuscript!
