i was flipping through images on hgtv's "rate my space" web site the other day. i came across a nursery that jeremy and i both instantly loved. while the majority of the nursery's decorating was less than desirable to us, this one accent wall was incredible. and we've decided that we'll use this in our nursery as well. instead of the colors seen below, we'll be using chocolate (ok, so that's the same), a warm gray and two shades of sage (one lighter/one darker). i really excited about how this will look. we're not, however, looking forward to taping the wall off to get that perfect square look. (ok, who am i kidding? i'm totally looking forward to being anal and taping that wall off!)

is it bad...

... that we already know what furniture we want for a nursery? i mean, i'm a planner by nature. (or maybe just really anal - what's the difference?) as soon as we saw these pieces, we knew they would be a part of our child's room. without further delay, here is what will hopefully be in our nursery sometime in the next year:

from the beginning...

a couple months ago, jeremy and i decided that we were ready to start trying for a family. we'd heard it could take any where from a month to a year (at least) to conceive. after getting all excited in august, we were slightly disappointed when we didn't get a positive sign. we decided it was just a sign that maybe we weren't quite ready. after several conversations, we decided to put trying to conceive off until the new year.

well, surprise! God had other plans. in our second
month of trying (but really not planning at all this month), we were surprised with a positive on a cheap target brand home pregnancy test on september 13. not quite believing it, we went to target again and got a digital test. we received a positive on that test september 14.

the hardest thing about all of it? my mom was in town for the weekend and we kept it secret! while we of course want all of our parents to know, w
e wanted to tell in our own time and in our own way.

this blog will just be a journal of sorts of our adventures in baby-makin'. expect photos and stories of all sorts. my favorite thing so far? (while we were discussing the benefits of avoiding caffeine at least through the first trimester): jeremy saying, "they should come out with a caffeine-free coffee." um, babe, it's called decaf.
