So thanks to all your prayers and hopefull thoughts... I got the coat that I have been coveting for the last month! Well I can't really say that you all had anything to do with it, since my dear mother went out and bought it for me the day after we first found it (meaning both my entire family and my husband have been messing with me for the past month), but I still really appreciate you all having my back!
I don't have time now to write, but I wanted to spread the news to those of you that have been waiting with bated breath to hear if I got it. ;) I'd like to post a picture, but we don't have a digital camera anymore, so I'll have to see if I can figure something out, maybe try to work that scanner that D. has in the basement.
Anyways, I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday! I'll update on my weekend tomorrow when I have more time here at work!
