Everyone at the Summit Group showers Al with awesome compliments and praise.

Spencer is a witness that Noah did in fact "go for a walk" during working time with his co-workers, after he ate pizza and watched The Office on the projector screen in the conference room during lunch.

I love that you took the time to Congratulate Allison in a way we can all get a better feel for what her days are like and how hard she has worked. However, Noah, I am sure the your days have a little more than you are giving it credit for! You kids are such a power couple!

A HUGE congrats Al! We, of course, are not surprised at all that you would recieve such a major promotion so early. You are amazing. That really is awesome, wonderful news and we couldn't be happier.

Noah, welcome, welcome. We're glad you're here.

Oh wow Al! That is so great - congrats!

And Noah - congrats on the soccer win, sounds pretty major. :)

That is AWESOME!! Seriously, you are a big deal. I mean, after seeing how you practically OWNed the SLC Marathon, I wasn't too surprised about the big promotion. Congrats! Can't wait to see you when you start PRing for NBC's "Today" Show.

And...I agree, so glad we have become friends over the blog. Because, well...I feel like we are buds now, sans the two face-to-face times we've met.

And, just for the record...when I first read Noah's abbreviation of "Al", I thought he was saying A.I., which in my interpretation could only one of two things: American Idol, Artificial Intelligence.
So glad that I realized it was his cute nickname for his wife instead! :-)

That is awesome! I can't believe that, that's awesome. I love the post. I promise we haven't forgot about going out to dinner but my hubby is currently in Japan so maybe when he gets back. Now we have something to celebrate!

Amy said...

Allison, sounds like you are quite a woman!!! Congrats on your promotion. And Noah, congrats to you on marrying such a catch!

Amber and Zach said...
