And We Shall Name Her...

Happy Monday!!
I hope you had a great weekend.
We had a very productive weekend;
the nursery is cleaned out & the paint has been purchased!
Joe covered all the holes in the wall yesterday
and we are ready to rip out the old gross green carpet.
The carpet guy is coming today to measure and we'll pick out the carpet within the week!!
As for her name, I never thought I'd be able to pick the name until I saw her...
but my husband and I had two girl names we really liked,
{and NO boy names, go figure!!}
and I really felt like he needed her to have a now.
So, why wait?
We love it and now I can use it to decorate her room/clothes/accessories with!
We decided that our little baby girl will have the name:
Brooke  Lynn  Delle Fave
We felt that it wasn't too trendy and growing up with a dozen Jennifers,
I figured it'd be nice to give her a name that was not so popular,
but rather classic.
We love the sound of it and we wanted to use my middle name for her as well.
We liked the name Brooklyn, but this way she can go by just Brooke
or add the Lynn if she wants to be called that too.
It is just a name both of us have always liked;
it sounds peaceful and serene.
Yes it means a small stream.
I feel that it's a strong name,
it will exude confidence,
I'm in love!!
I am in search of beautiful items that would say
Any suggestions??
Here are some of my pin-spirations...

Those of you mamas out there, 
where did you find a lot of your fun nursery decor?
 I don't want to have it all matchy-matchy.
Barn and jungle animals just aren't my thing.
Cutsie animals here and there are fine,
I just don't want an overall "theme".
We don't want to overload on the princess thing either...
I assure you she'll be spoiled enough with all of our friends & families!
I am thinking Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Jo-Anns...
and even Etsy may have some great finds.
My mother-in law is so amazing, she's going to help make 
Brooke's bumper, crib skirt, & some decorative throw pillows!
I love that we can customize it to however we'd like!!!
I want her room to feel magical and peaceful.
This will keep me plenty busy for a bit.
I'm so excited!!
