My Husband the Senior Manager

Last week, Zack got the awesome news that he was promoted to Senior Manager with Accenture! He worked incredibly hard over the past few years (especially on his most recent project), so he definitely deserved it. I'm very proud of him!

I made a sign for the door to welcome him home on the day he found out about the promotion and then forced him to pose for cheesy paparazzi-style pictures as he came down our hallway. My kind husband is very tolerant of my excessive picture taking!

I found a store in South Melbourne that makes balloon bouquets, so I quickly rushed home from school that day, had them make up a Congratulations one, bought a bottle of champagne, and biked home (not easy with a bag full of balloons!) to get ready for the Senior Manager to arrive.

Congrats Mr. Senior Manager!
We have a tradition in my family: whenever someone gets a new job, promotion, or raise, he or she has to buy pizza for everyone. So I made Zack buy us pizza for dinner! It didn't quite go with the healthy eating plan we've been trying to follow lately, but we made an exception considering the circumstances.
It was a fun, celebratory evening with a shared bottle of champagne, lots of pizza, and several kind Facebook 'likes' and comments from friends and family. We've been waiting and hoping for this news for quite awhile, so it was great to finally be able to enjoy the official announcement of his promotion. Congratulations Zack!

P.S. Zack is probably going to be embarrassed when he reads this post. Too bad...this is what he gets for letting me take over the blog! :)


  1. Hi I am new to your blog but I am loving it a lot! Thanks for sharing about your travel in Australia and congratulations to your husband!

  2. Apparently he has been too busy at work to contribute to the blog!! :-)
    Congratulations on this success...glad to see the long hours and the international move has paid off!


  3. Is it coincidence that he gets a promotion just after he shaves off his facial hair? I think not. Way to go Zack. Keep your face clean and you may run the company in a few years.

  4. A thoughtful celebration for a great occasion. Well done all around.

  5. Molly says well done and you owe her a bone next time you see her because she missed out on pizza!

  6. Congratulations to Zack! Well done to him and to you for cycling back with the bouquet of balloons! :) Enjoy!

  7. Thanks all, was a nice way to celebrate.
