Time to potty train?

Little Lady is turning 17 months old and we are starting to think she is ready to try using the big girl potty. I'm not super eager to get rid of diapers or anything, but since she is showing signs we may consider trying to let her start to potty train.

Tonight, she was running around naked after her bath and all of a sudden yelled "pee pee!" She started running for the bathroom but then got distracted by the enticement of playing in mommy's closet. She dashed into the closet and started to close the door. All of a sudden she then looks down between her legs. I reached out and shockingly discovered the floor was wet and she had just "pee peed" . 

I don't even know how she does this word. It must be the phrase they used at school. 

The last month or so has been filled with signs that she is recognizing when she needs to go to the bathroom, such as pulling in her diaper or sometimes running for the potty but then already having a warm/wet diaper. We did have one instance about a month ago where she sat on the potty and managed to go properly, but I feel like that was more luck than anything. 

I'm wondering when and how everyone else potty trained?! I know very little about this subject...

I definitely don't want to force something she is not ready for because she is still so young, but if she keeps showing signs we may give it a go. I can't imagine my little girl wearing real panties. We cannot be there yet.
