What's cooking this week + 1,000th Post + It's a Little Sis

A LOT to catch up on! First, we found out that Baby Sko Dos is a little SISTER! That makes 3 very happy Skoblickis! Ella seems to be loving the idea as far as I can tell, and Stephen and I are thrilled too. I'm getting used to saying things like "the girls"....crazy and exciting! It was super special because my mom was here for a bit earlier this past week when we all went for the ultrasound together. Soooo, now we know! Let the planning begin! We're working on Ella's *new* room and sprucing up the nursery. It's all very exciting around here!

As I sat down to create this post, I realized this is my 1,000th post! Isn't that nuts?! I've been doing this for a long time now, so let's get to my favorite part....
Sunday: Grandpa's Marinara
Tuesday: Baked Chicken and Veggies
Wednesday: Mediterranean Chicken Pizza
Thursday: Grilled Chicken Sausage & Sweet Potato Fries
Friday: BBQ with family

It's been quiet around here because my ultra crazy work week turned into Spring Break and we have been non-stop as usual! My mom was here, we went down south to visit the fam and pick out a wedding dress with my cousin. After Mamma Sco went home, we kicked potty training into full gear which has been a bit of a nightmare....I'm open to tips for my very stubborn little lady! We've had some success with #1 on the potty, but now we are in a weird pattern of her being afraid to sit on the potty but she's also doing the pee-pee dance and holding it in. I didn't expect this would be easy, but I also didn't expect that we'd be stuck in this strange rut. She's so cranky and upset because she is uncomfortable holding it in. How do you explain that she will feel better if she just goes?!? I don't want to force her on it and create a negative association! HELP! Luckily we have her 2.5 year check up tomorrow so we'll be chatting with our Pediatrician for sure!

Yesterday and today have been very relaxing. We are sprucing things up around here, outside and in. After we put away these groceries, I'll help Hubs plant the rest of our flowers. Our home is getting "Easter-ready" for our family that will be visiting us for the weekend. I'm planning a BBQ for Friday, dinner reservations (hibachi unless I change it) for Saturday, and a big Polish traditional Easter breakfast for Sunday! Good food and GOOD times! It's going to be great.
I'm trying not to focus on the fact that Spring Break is OVER...instead just going to enjoy the rest of my Sunday with my very headstrong little lady and my handsome Hubs! Happy Sunday!

Ooooooh, I almost forgot! Thursday night I'll be making these pierogies in preparation for this weekend's festivities!
