IKEA Spring 2020 Catalog

IKEA Spring 2020 Catalog

It’s no secret I am a massive IKEA fan. I always tell people that even if I was loaded with an endless furniture budget, I’d still shop there. Back in 2016, our old living room was even featured in their Home Tour Series. I’m also huge on sustainability and nature inspired design, so you can only imagine how excited I was when I recently got word that IKEA’s spring catalog, which showcases products that will begin to appear in their stores this month, is all about sustainability, mindfulness, and nature. I am 100000% here for this you guys.

I’ve only seen a sneak peak of the catalog, but wanted to share some of my favorite images from it. I can’t wait to see it in person. I also can’t wait to shop these goodies with my little lady, who almost always choses IKEA as her go-to place when we plan mom-daughter dates. (Wonder where she gets it?)

Our Living Room (+ Why I Especially Love It Right Now)

A Stunning Midcentury Boho Style Living Room Reveal

Last week, the retaining wall in our backyard collapsed. This wasn’t a complete shock, as our next door neighbors’ did the same thing last April. In fact, all of the bricks are still sitting in their backyard, almost a year later. The wall spans five properties, and to this day, we’re not sure exactly who it belongs to or who is responsible for fixing it, because the HOA, gas company (it runs along a gas line on the gas company’s property), and city don’t want to take the blame. And homeowners insurance very rarely covers retaining walls. Did I mention that the builders are no longer in business? I won’t get into all of the logistics, but we decided to be extremely proactive and have already taken many steps to do everything we can to get this sorted out with many pleading vibes being sent to the universe in hopes of us not having to go completely broke to repair it.

Anyway, with this new home debacle we’re facing, finishing our DIY kitchen remodel (which we planned to start back on this week) is on hold until we find out whether or not we have to pay for this mess. So in the meantime, I’m staying positive and focusing on the other areas of our house we’ve fixed up so far. Our living room, which we redesigned (mainly with just paint and furniture) about a year ago, remains my favorite space. I know I’ve shared some images of it here before, but I’m sharing again, because, well, I need to look at a space that I love to deter me from ugly crying as I peer out to the the disaster that it currently our backyard.

Our retaining wall fiasco certainly isn’t a real world problem by any means, and hey, when you are lucky enough to be able to purchase a home of your own, this is what you sign up for. But you have some positive retaining wall energy to send our way, we’ll take it!

Vegetarian Totellini and Spinach Soup

I feel like I have become the queen of sharing updated versions of recipes I’ve shared before, but I guess one of the great things about having had a blog for so freaking long (10 years in November of this year!) is the vast potential to scroll through archives and remember recipes you’d forgotten about. I’m honestly not sure how I forgot about this one; it was a favorite for years. I originally adapted it from a recipe I got from Robbie’s parents in order to make it vegetarian, and ate it constantly. My kids are admittedly not huge soup fans, which is probably the reason this got pushed to the back burner (get it? get it?), but I recently made it again with a few changes and I will never let its goodness slip away again. It’s pretty easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, which is key for this lazy chef.

Vegetarian Tortellini and Spinach Soup
Serves 6-8  

Ingredients
2 boxes (32 oz each) organic vegetable broth
1 package fresh Cheese Tortellini
2 cups marinara sauce (I prefer refrigerated to jar)
3 garlic cloves, minced
4-5 cups organic baby spinach
crush red pepper flakes to taste
salt to taste
fresh shredded parmesan cheese (for topping)

Heat vegetable broth in a large pot and until boiling. While broth is heating, mince garlic.  Once broth is boiling, add tortellini to boiling broth and cook for five minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. (Be careful not to overcook. Nobody like mushy tortellini.) Reduce heat to a simmer and stir in marinara sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook for five more minutes. Stir in baby spinach and immediately remove from heat. Top with a pinch of parmesan and serve.

I love it with a warm baguette. So good!

Friday Funny: One of these things is not like the others

The original caption when I found this was “do you think the cat knows he’s adopted?” I don’t know, they all have the same family characteristics, don’t you think? Probably a brother from another mother or a sister from another mister. Enjoy your weekend. Until next time, Good day, and good dog!
