Business + baby update

Melissa is back from maternity leave!

Being a mama is definitely her favorite thing in the whole entire world. Which is why she decided to take some extra time off to be with her girl.

London Reese Adler was born March 10, 2013. We couldn’t be more in love with our little angel. She is the most adorable grand baby ever!

Recently we took a family camping trip to Lake Del Valle in Livermore. It was so much fun!! London absolutely LOVED being outdoors & swimming in the lake with Daddy. Here’s me “grammy” & London at the lake. Too precious for words!

image2

In Melissa’s absence my youngest son, Evan came aboard to help with her duties. It worked out so well that they are now officially working together. Which is great, because trying to work with a 5 month old can be quite tricky. We make a fantastic team! In the past 6 months, we have been continuing to expand the business & learn new skills.

We look forward to keeping you updated & of course helping with your real estate needs.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

We’re always here to help!

Best Wishes,

The Re/Max Lindstrom Team

Accessory addicted

There’s nothing I love more than accessories for the home. I’m slightly addicted. In fact we actually have a bank account specifically for this habit of mine.

I was recently at TJ MAXX Homegoods looking for a few things for the nursery. I was searching for a table side lamp (Which I ended up getting at Target), picture frames for her gallery wall & a hamper.

While I didn’t end up finding much for the nursery, I did score a really well made hamper for $50, some Vera Wang sheets & a $22 sunburst mirror!

The mirror had been marked down from $60 to $35 to $25 all because it had a slight crack in the bottom right corner. At the register I asked for 10% off making it $22

IMG_0133

Such a steal! I decided to hang it over our couch and accent it with some candles. I was over those photos that were up there, so I added them to the gallery love wall. So much better!

IMG_0134Those gold candle holders are just small mason jars I had around the house. I used glitter glue & some gold glitter for some added sparkle.IMG_0140

For Christmas I got these gold Moroccan poufs for the living room & white lacquered tray from West Elm

IMG_0113

The poufs are from Overstock. At first I was a little concerned that they were too gold, but I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on them. It took a couple weeks to get used to them. These are amazing if you’re short on space, because they can provide extra seating if you have guests over. My favorite part is that they fit perfectly under the waterfall table.

What do you think? IMG_0110We are expecting our maternity photos anytime now.. so anxious to see them! Look for those in next week’s posts. Also I’ll be sharing a no-sew crib skirt. It was so easy!! I’m so glad we made our own.

34 weeks

To say the last few weeks have been crazy, would be a huge understatement. Between the childbirth & baby care classes,  maternity shoot, car shopping, baby shower planning & finishing up the nursery it’s been jam packed.

I can’t believe I’ll be having this babe in just 6 weeks! Here is the latest bump pic:

32 weeks + 4 days

Current cravings: peanut butter & avocados (not together lol)

Current annoyances: Not being able to get comfortable while sleeping. I get these weird buzzing/tingling feelings in my lower left back & also under my right rib. Keeps me up sometimes. Have any of you mommas experienced buzzing or tingling while preggers? So bizarre! I now have to sleep with 5 pillows just to be semi comfy!

Things I miss: Sleeping on my stomach! Pre-preggo I had a huge addiction to sleeping on my stomach.. only 6 more weeks. Can’t wait.

Things I’m loving: Her kicks. She is a super active baby. I love laying on my side and seeing her kicks and jabs through my stomach. LOVE it.

Current weight gain: 34 pounds

Last weekend we had our all day childbirth class at Santa Clara Kaiser. It was actually really informative. The instructor went over everything. We learned breathing techniques, positions to ease labor pain, terms we will need to know, watched labor movies &  played games. It was actually pretty fun! 8 hours was a little much, but overall it was definitely worth it. Clayton took a ton of notes & we asked lots of questions. Afterward we both were saying how we feel so much more comfortable with what is going to happen now.

Sunday we had our maternity shoot with our friends Jason & Anna, who also shot our wedding & engagement shoot. It was a lot of fun. To be honest I was kind of dreading getting my picture taken.. it’s little different when you’re pregnant & feel like a huge whale. But of course J & A made it super fun. We love them.

Can’t wait to share the photos with you guys.

I leave you with a little peak at baby girl’s nursery

IMG_0095I am still patiently waiting for my Nurseryworks Empire rocker… It’s backordered until March 4th! I hope it arrives before our little one does.

The side table lamp is from Target. The $7  lampshade was plain white, so I added a little grosgrain ribbon to the top & bottom. I like that it ties in with the black & white striped wall. The lamp base is acrylic, not glass. Much safer for baby.

Just waiting for the maternity & newborn photos to complete the gallery wall above her changing table

sneak3This is the fabric I ordered for her crib skirt.. I love the anchors, but I’m still undecided. I was planning to DIY her crib skirt this weekend. What do you think about the fabric?

IMG_0090Have a fabulous weekend!!

Nursery + baby update

After searching Craigslist for a couple of months, I finally found the perfect dresser for the nursery. This will also double as her changing table.

dresser2

I have such a thing for well made antique & vintage furniture. The only thing I’m not completely loving about this piece is that the top is laminate. So I’ll probably prime it with some Linsser primer & then paint over. While I’m at it, I was thinking about doing a stencil on the top part too. Kind of like the quatrefoil stencil I did on our antique buffet. Honestly though, I might just keep it the way it is.

gold antique hardwareI’m so in love with the original antique gold hardware

drwers openSurprisingly the drawers don’t stick or get jammed. They slide out like butter! This piece was made by Morris of California. They are known for their smooth sliding drawers. So if you love vintage furniture, but hate the sticking drawers, search for one of these.

Above her changing table, I plan to make a gallery wall out of gold frames & other accents. Can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

***Baby Update***

I’m officially in the 3rd & final trimester!! We have 90 days to go. I can’t wait to meet this daughter of ours!

27 weeks

We had a doctor’s appointment last week & everything is right on track

Current cravings: candy canes & lemon water

Current weight gain: 24 pounds

Current annoyances: not being able to take my shoes on & off without it feeling like a workout, occasional lower backaches

Things I miss: caffeine, wine, sleeping on my stomach, sleeping through the night & not having to pee 8 times a night (NOT an exaggeration)

Things I’m loving: All the kicking from my baby – except when she is stomping on my bladder in the middle of the night. ouch! Having dinner made for me & house cleaning done by my sweet loving husband! He has been so helpful & incredibly sweet throughout the pregnancy. Love him!!!

Xo, Melissa
