thanks so much to everyone who sent along their well-wishes, who crossed their fingers, and who sent goodwishes in the winds after my kissing friends post last week!

last friday, the lovely mr. rikrak defended his ph.d. thesis and woohoo... what a superstar he was! he was FABULOUS! and now.... he's all done that gosh-darned ph.d! {i always did have a thing for professors.. *sigh*)... & just like that i'm married to dr. rikrak!

i'm so proud of my sweetiepie. he was so eloquent, and dynamic and inspiring at the defense. you were fantastic, love. fan-tastic!

so here's to you, dr. rikrak.

    You can all breathe a sigh a relief and enjoy the moment, or the years of hard work! Yay!!!

    My younger sister got her PhD in Edinburgh many years ago and I went with my mom to her graduation, such a thrill to see her in the bright pink gown!

  2. We're so thrilled for you both, RR! Celebrate!!!

  3. Congrats to Dr.Rikarak...that's fantastic!!!
    My husband has been trying to get his A Liscence in Sky-Diving and he finally made it one step further this weekend...after 5 jumps...all he has to do is learn the matering of packing the chute.
    Just another tremendous acheivement added to his LONG list.
    So proud of him.
    Have a great day!

  4. Oh, congratulations to Dr. Rikrak! I have a BA in English Lit - so he is my hero! Please share the subject of his thesis - I would love to know.

    It must be such a feeling of accomplishment after all that work.
    Well done to you both.

  6. Congrats to you and Dr. RikRak! I love the ring of it also.. you should make him a name plate for his desk.

  7. Woo Hoo!

    Congrats to the Doc on the end of all the paperwork and hard, hard work. And congrats to the entire rikrak family for surviving all of it, too! As the wife of a recent PhD, I know firsthand that it's a rough time and well worth completing it!

    Hats off to you!

  8. I'm working on a PhD. It'll be 13 years in university by the time I'm done. I swear to you I'm going to make everyone call me Dr. Green for at least a month after I graduate. After a while you have to admit there is some ego involved . . .

    What a delicious vision!

  9. thanks so much for all of your kind words, lovelies!

    & so great to hear of your own fabulous milestones!

    you can do it!
