With a TV career heating up again and a biological clock ticking, Tiffani Thiessen is debating whether she wants to have kids or stay busy working.

“We’re definitely talking about [kids]. We’re just trying to figure out the whole work schedule now,” Thiessen, 35, told PEOPLE at Thursday’s USA Network and Vanity Fair Character Project party in Beverly Hills.

Thiessen married actor/artist Brady Smith in May 2005. In 2008 she told PEOPLE that plans for children were imminent, saying that the couple was “hoping to get pregnant soon.”

Since then, the actress – best-known for her work on Saved By the Bell and the original Beverly Hills 90210 has been hanging out with her husband and filming the pilot for her new USA drama White Collar.

“I took a little break for a while, which was nice, just concentrated on being a newly married girl and all that,” she said. “My schedule wasn’t too, too crazy, so I can’t complain. I’m sure it’s going to get crazier as the show goes on!”

Especially if she decides to have a baby too. “I’ve never done it – it’s going to be a whole new thing,” Thiessen says of combining motherhood with a starring role on a TV show.

For now, Thiessen and her husband are looking forward to his next big project. Smith is busy putting together an art show that will showcase in Los Angeles June 20, which according to Thiessen, is “huge.”
