. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Happy Hour

Happy Hour

 
tee: old navy    jeans: ross maternity    vest: loft

I know I've written a similar post before, but here's yet another example that Chris and I may as well be in our sixties. 

When we went away to Wisconsin a few weekends ago we looked up restaurants that had happy hours.  I think for a normal couple in their late 20's, early 30's this would be a happy hour that started around 9 or 10 o'clock. 

Not for us though.  We went to a 4 - 6 happy hour and were the first to arrive.  Slightly embarrassing, we were followed by couple after couple in their sixties at the youngest.  

Proof.   


There were even two oxygen tanks attending.  We definitely had anyone beat by at least thirty years. 
 

At least the fact that we like to be home early, eat early and avoid those young, rowdy crowds will only prepare us more for our baby.  Speaking of baby preparation, rather than going to Friday night happy hour we will be going to a childbirth class.  They told us to bring pillows and blankets and I fear having to mimic labor positions and laughing awkwardly as if I'm too immature to birth a baby.   Hopefully it doesn't scare me too much either.  

Hope you have a good weekend!

Haha! That's so great!! I like eating early and missing the crowds too! Plus then, you have the rest of the night to do things. I'm anxious to hear how that birthing class goes. Is it just like what you see in movies? Haha! You look gorgeous! I love the green with the belt! So cute!!

Thank you for this post!!! My hubby and I are the exact same way! I love eating super early so we can get home early and just relax! And this may be my favorite outfit so far!

Allison said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Another reason we would be friends and hang out in real life! We are "old" too and I'm not ashamed! :) Another adorable outfit!

Desiree Macke said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

My husband and I are the same way! Happy hour at 9PM? No way, I'm in my pjs by then! :)

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look so adorable! Nothing wrong with getting an early start to dinner ;)

Amanda said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

hahaha! Tyler and I were just talking last night about how we aren't the typical 23 year olds... for instance, we've never had a drink & we drive around at night looking for garbage. :)
you look great in this picture!!

and the birthing comment... that made me laugh :) HA!

Kaylin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

One of my favorite pregnancy outfits to date.
Love your new hair.

And my boyfriend and I are the same way, going out is so not worth it!

Susannah said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This is totally me and Nate too. We're in bed by 10:30 even on weekends typically. Early happy hours are the best! Good luck with your birthing class. I'm right there with you with the giggling like an immature schoolgirl. I'm afraid Nate and I will be kicked out of our class someday because it appears as though we're not taking it seriously enough.

Sofia Donatelli said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look amazing!

If you get a sec, check out me latest post 'Mon Chérie'. My latest craze is french sayings on sweaters.

Have a wonderful weekend.

You look great! Hope you get a lot out of birthing class! I'm sure it'll be reassuring and have tons of information! I've heard going to those are extremely helpful, so even if there are a few awkward moments, you'll be really happy you went!

Megan C said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look great! Love your maternity outfits, they have really inspired me... might have to head to Ross for some jeans!

Courtney Kassner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I laughed just imagining you laughing during the childbirth class. I feel I would act the same way. Hope it goes well!!

Helene said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Carly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ha! We are early birds too! Can't wait to hear how the class goes!

christina said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

this is the best. when we eat dinner at our house before 5:30 we call it nursing home time. lol.

have fun at your class.

you look great btw. i can't believe you only have a handful of weeks to go!!?

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Funny- if I was looking for happy hour it would be early too, between 3-5pm. I also prefer to eat early and bet the rush. It's not just from having a child either- I was like that BC!

I love this outfit! The green is so fun. Your hair looks great- you have definitely mastered the curling iron.

I really enjoyed our child birth classes. They were smaller though- only 3 couples. We actually regularly get together with the other couples and babies. We learned lots at the classes, especially J.

You look amazing!

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Man, I'm 21 and we always shoot for the 4-6 happy hour. It feels like I'm a teenager if we're hitting up the late night deals at Applebees. And going to a drive-in movie? We don't get home till 2 in the morning, but I can guarantee I've been asleep since midnight!

Chrissy + Nate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Nate and I ALWAYS say that we are senior citizens... we eat dinner at like 5:30!

Deidre said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look so beautiful!

My husband and I recently went on a holiday and were the youngest people on the plane to our island destination by 30 years (at least!). So I can totally relate.

Whitney Cypert said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love this outfit on you, your bump looks so darling! I laughed so hard at the oxygen tanks comment. So funny! G and I like to be in early too!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

We went to TGIFridays in South Dakota and happy hour started at 9. We each had one cheap drink with dinner and were out of there by 9:45. We totally missed the point.

Happy weekend!

Haha so funny but so true, you know you are getting older when you are actually bothered by loud young crowds...the novelty of wooting frat boys and screetchy girls has worn off huh.
