Mmmm... Saganaki!

I realized I forgot to post about my weekend, and since I know you're all dying to know what I did on my first weekend of Summer Vacation, I'm back to tell you!

Saturday was lovely. Hubs had to work until about 1:30, so I stayed home and watched He's Just Not That Into You. It was actually better than I thought it would be. Then I went down to hubs's work and we drove out to the Greek Festival together for lunch. Mmm... spanokopita (spinach-filled filo triangles), dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), saganaki (flaming broiled cheese), loukaniko (sausage) and the piece de resistance - a baklava sundae! And a box of pastries to take home with us to boot. Man. I'm hungry again! I guess Ni.a Vard.alos even showed up, right as we were leaving, so I missed that little celeb sighting. Oh well! I got what I went for!

After the Greek Festival we went to a barbecue, cuz, ya know, I was obviously still hungry. It was a better time than expected (at the home of a couple that has a 3 year old and a 7 month old). And I found out another of my friends is THIS CLOSE to getting engaged too! Very exciting times for a wannabe wedding planner like me :)

Yesterday we didn't do much, cleaned the kitchen, went out to lunch, and then went and saw The Han.gover. It was funny, no Will Ferrell comedy for sure, but funny.

I have decided that I'm going to plan a dinner party for next month. I have all these grand ideas that I'm sure won't QUITE come to fruition, but I've gotta at least try! It looks so pretty in my head.

Now off to daydream the rest of this ho-hum Monday away...

I want to see "HJNTITY"! Have you ever seen the books? Funny stuff!

I'm not a big Will Ferrell fan, but glad you liked the movie.

We did a French dinner party once, it was really fun! Just 3 couples & a brother & sister (who i would've prefered not being there, but we didn't have it at our house, so not my call). We split up who was making what so it wouldn't get too expensive for anyone. The food was great & a good time was had by all.
