Melisa - sorry for the suspense. After opening your fabulous gift I drove on home to my mothers for the night, and wasn't able to get online. Apologies!
And for the record... There was squealing. Quite a lot of it.
There was photo documentation. It shall be uploaded shortly - I'm currently running horribly late. Thank you, thank you, thank you... times infinity. I will wear it with pride on Thursday night :)
