So I mentioned in a previous post that Lane has finished his residency. That pretty much means he will now be receiving normal doctor pay (woohoo!). He has also signed a contract with EMC. That's a group that staffs several hospitals in the area. So now Lane works at 3 different hospitals close by.
Anyway, we have a trip to Vegas planned to celebrate, but that's not until August. We felt like a celebration was needed a bit sooner, so we got a babysitter and headed to Dallas. One of his friends recommended The Rustic. It's owned by Pat Green. Glad we went there. The décor was really cool, live music, relaxed atmosphere. We ordered the Texas goat cheese w/ baguettes, the Rustic hamburger, onion straws & deviled eggs. Everything was delicious.
After, we hit up the mall and shopped til we dropped. Well it was all for Lane, but I enjoyed picking things out for him. This shopping trip was long overdue. I don't think Lane has bought any new clothes with the exception of a few t-shirts and jeans in 7 years. He hates shopping. Luckily we had a salesperson follow us around helping us gather what we needed. He ended up with lots of dress shirts, 2 pairs of dress slacks, 2 pairs of shoes, a couple ties, and a leather jacket (for me :)). We still need to get him a pair of casual khaki pants and some casual shirts, but that will be for another day. We were worn out!
I bought a Groupon for The Stoneleigh in Dallas. I was very pleased. It was a 1920's theme, but modern. Very cool décor. Breakfast was included & it was pretty good. But the best thing about it was that we were able to sleep in :) I wish I could have slept longer, but 8:30 is better than 6:30. It was such a fun little date with Lane and a much needed pat on the back to him.
