Dinner Time - Greek Style (Sangria Anyone?)

I can't believe that it's already Monday...seriously!
Last week's Smell the Roses task was to catch up with someone over dinner.

One of my best friends, Brittany, and I grabbed dinner Thursday night at one of my favorite places - a Greek restaurant called Acropolis. Since we had a late dinner, we were able to sit outside and not die from a heat stroke...so that was nice!




Britt & my schedules kinda clash so we haven't had much time to catch up these last few weeks. We had fun getting dinner and walking around the cute plaza. It's one of my favorite plazas, because it has such a small community feel to it. Brick walls, stone walkways, high hanging zig-zagged white lights, benches scattered about...I'm actually looking to rent an apartment in there when my lease is up in October!




I got a Greek salad with grilled chicken (no tomatoes or potato salad) and some sangria :) Oh and we shared some tzatziki dip with pita as an appetizer. SO DELICIOUS. I love me some Greek food! Acropolis is definitely one of my favorite places to eat...delicious & affordable? YES PLEASE.


By the time we finished talking and remembered that we needed to take pictures, everyone around us had left! SO we did a little improv and took pictures of each other and used the Pic Frame app to put them together. Clever, I know ;)

Did you catch up with someone over dinner last week? Link up!




This week's task:
Watch your favorite movie of all time.

New movies are cranked out month after month...so my list of movies to watch is never ending. It's easy to forget about some of our older favorite movies. So this week I think it would be fun if we took some time to watch a favorite movie that we haven't seen in awhile. We can meet back here next week and post inspiration boards of our favorite movie (thanks for the idea Sara) or anything else that you want to post!

Oh and you should really take a look at the lovely new ladies that I'm reppin on my sidebar for the month of July :)
