Since I didn't want to have to cook a bunch when returning home from the hospital, I decided to pack our freezer full of premade meals including items such as lasagna, chicken enchiladas and mushroom cheese runzas. Our freezer isn't that big, so it filled up quickly. Oh, I also made some cookies and butterscotch chocolate chip marshmallow brownie bars since it would be wrong if there weren't any sweets around! I also made a strawberry rhubarb pie for my husband since he loves them so much; plus I figured I'd be kind to him now since I probably wouldn't be so nice in the delivery room! His mom makes them all the time, so I try to make him at least one a year to satisfy his craving. Another item I experimented making was pesto since I have a huge basil and Thai basil plant. It was pretty easy and will definitely make it again when my plants grow back as I butchered them quite a bit.
Otherwise the baby's room was pretty much complete and our bags were packed. The exciting, yet life changing event, was just around the corner!
I've included a few pictures of my last week being pregnant and some baking I did.
I had just gotten my haircut since I figured I wouldn't have much time afterwards (this photo was taken on July 15 in our apartment)
