Work hard, play hard

I’m pretty sure Husband has spent more time out with friends than he has in class. And that’s saying something!

Out of his 14 classes, 11 of them are before Wednesday afternoon. That means, by the middle of the week, he’s zonked and just wants to get something to eat and drink all night.

Many of his classmates are from out of town so Husband has been the unofficial tour guide to the city. He’s been taking the 1Ls out to the great stops in St. Louis – O’Connell’s, Humphreys and Imo’s.

We haven’t made it to Ted Drewes, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar or The Fountain, but there are plans. Oh believe me, there are plans! Most of these places are simply must-sees in St. Louis – Ted Drewes especially. It’s a classic!

But it’s good for him to hang out with friends and relax. The classes are hard (they should be!) and he’s reading upwards of a thousand pages in cases in each week. Something about grabbing a beer and laughing at the end of the day makes facing that large textbook a little easier.


  1. Hope you get to have a great Labor day and lots of fun :)

  2. We had a housewarming this afternoon, and rehearsal this evening. Don't worry, we had lots of fun this weekend!

  3. I just found your blog and it is really cute! My husband was in grad school the year of our engagement and the first year of our marriage. STRESS! I feel ya...

  4. When my husband was in law school it was the same thing. Going out is a great way to bond with classmates. I was happy that I was able to go out and join them also, so that I could get to know them. In law school they need all the help and support they can get!

  5. Ah law school husbands. We need a wives club! I am so excited to be done after this year!

    By the way - how did you get your start as an event planner/host? Not even kidding, its my dream job. I do some event planning now and really enjoy it, I'd love to do it full time.

  6. Just found your blog - can't wait to read more! (Even though my hubby isn't a lawyer - he's an MD - I totally understand the stress of putting your man through school.)

    And mmmm... Ted Drewes! I used to live in the STL and the custard is yummy. But I have to say, the Chocolate Bar was a disappointment. Granted, it was a few years ago I went there, so I hope you enjoy it!
