Extra! Extra! Read all about the new MRS. Bowie!

Hello Nearlyweds and friends! :)

I'm coming to you LIVE from my home and our honeymoon (we actually just checked out of the Bed and Breakfast this morning)!!! Definitely I could be someplace so much more glamorous than just home but a vacation away from "life" is good enough for me and Mr. Bowie. I've got a doctor's appointment today for the baby and otherwise we're just enjoying our time off snuggling and basking in newlywedded bliss.

Thought you all would like to know how the The Big Day went overall though...

The above is the only picture that I have so far from the day. The picture was taken just after we walked through the "lavender shower" and we were getting ready to go in and do formal pictures. I'll certainly post some of the formals (and other fun stuff that was captured because I know those will be more of my favorites than the formals) as soon as I get them from the photographers.

The day overall and days leading up to The Big Day were wonderful and crazy. There were plenty of snafus here and there but nothing that we and MRS. NEARLYWED (our SUPER-FANTASTIC coordinator) couldn't handle!!! I'd go into more detail but I think it'd be better if I save the most of it since you all will be able to see it for yourselves on...

Yes! We are getting our "15 minutes of fame" after the producers of the show heard about our crazed story of wedding planning, a complicated pregnancy, and my ridiculously insane life and you will get to see how it all worked itself out on television (in maybe 1.5-2 months?). It was certainly interesting having cameras around us for the days leading up to the wedding but it was fun and we had an awesome time with the field producer and the camera and sound crew that she brought with us. And definitely - Mrs. Nearlywed was phenomenal helping us get through it all with this now being her 2nd time doing a show for them!

The other big secret that I've been anxiously awaiting to reveal is the sex of our baby!!! I could be a meanie and make you all wait for that (since it was announced at the reception for the show's filming) but I'll go ahead and let you in on the juice now. Here's a copy of the video montage that we showed at the reception (with a slight tweak at the end)... turn up your speakers because there's sound that goes with it!!!

So that's that. Hope you all are having a great day and enjoyed this little bitty update. I know it's been quite some time coming!!!

Now if you'll pardon me, I've got a honeymoon to get back to... ;)
