Timeline:

Filed I-140 (NIW) & I-485 - Feb. 27th 2006 (concurrent filing)
Filed for EAD and AP on same day.

EAD received - Mar. 31st 2006
AP recieved - Apr. 12th 2006

I-140 NIW approved - Apr. 22nd 2006

Biometrics appointment - May 31st 2006
Biometrics rescheduled to June 17th since we were in the UK on holiday

So, 4 months and 3 weeks from start to finish. I am in shock!

Thanks y'all.

I'll be spending my weekend... roasting in London, on my way to a business meeting!

So at least it'll be real beer I'm celebrating with!
