Sweet dreams are made of these

Holy crap, there are some amazing baby nurseries out there!!!
I can't wait to set our plans for a nursery into motion once we're pregnant and find out the sex.
It will be a challenge to not go overboard since we're uncertain where we will be living once our lease is up. We want to stay in our current apartment but the downtown lifestyle gets a bit loud and we'd like at least a patio for Monty...we'll see!

For now, I am having fun browsing Pinterest and day dreaming about the perfect little spot for our perfect little baby!!

Luke and I both like neutrals with pops of color, something that will be easy to transition the pieces and colors from baby, to toddler to little kid.

Here are a couple of my favorite finds on pinterest for Indy and Lowe:

How perfect is this room for Indiana?! Luke and I have already bought a couple Indiana Jones prints off Etsy that will be perfect for this room!!

I love the woodland theme of this room (the pin on Pinterest didn't have the original link). I think we'd switch out the wood furniture for white though and chevron instead of plaid.

This room is just what I imagine for a little Marlowe (without the bird pillow). I love the wall paper and plan on having an accent wall with it and the best part is, Luke loves wall paper too!!!

Not going to lie, I kind of want our bedroom to look like this...Luke would object, its too girly for him but for Lowe, it would be perfect!! The light and the floor pouf are my favorite!!

Luke and I had so much fun planning our bedroom and decorating it, I know when the time comes we're both going to put just as much thought and effort into the babies room as we did ours!

You make my dreams

Since my last post, Luke and I got married, moved into a new apartment, FINALLY got Monty living with us, bought lots of new things together to fill our new space and are now in the process of getting ready to start a family!!

I won't go into our planning process or our discussions or anything like that-that stuff is private but I will say we aren't going into this lightly or just because we want a cute baby. We had big, long talks and decided together that we are ready!

Being ready and having a planning period before we actually get pregnant is one reason I decided to blog again or eventually start a new one, because we live about an hour and half away from both of our parents, I thought a blog would be a good way to let them know whats going on in our lives on this new journey since we can't always make it up there or phone calls aren't enough.

Since we haven't "officially" started the nine month journey, I don't have any pregnancy things to talk about but I have started reading a couple books, bought a couple creams and oils that were on sale and even bought a super cute pair of baby leggings from H & M. Its been fun having this sort of seque period but its also making me impatient!

Pinterest has become my best friend-I thought it was fun searching and pinning stuff for a wedding, but oh my, its even more fun doing it for a baby!! There are so many cute nursery ideas, adorable onesies and awesome baby gear! I started board for each gender under the names we have picked out, I LOVE, love love our names, we picked them together and they flow so nicely.

Indiana Jamin Sedmak is our boy name. Indiana has been the name I've had picked out for a boy for forever! I love Indiana Jones, when I was little I wanted to be him when I grew up...I kind of still do, hes badass. Jamin is Luke's middle name and its important to him to have our potential son carry on the name, which I think is so sweet.

Marlowe Wren Sedmak is our girl name. We both think Marlowe is such a sweet name and it has a bit of my Great Grandfathers name, which is where my middle name came from-Arlee/Arlene. Wren is just adorable and makes me think of a cute little bird, I love it.

For now thats all we have going on with expanding our little family. I can't wait to have more to share and to share the news with all our friends and family!!
