dessert to die for

As I've mentioned before, because I'm so ridiculously excited, I'm a bridesmaid in this girl's wedding here in a month. Unfortunately for myself, I've done absolutely nothing to ensure that I look semi presentable in my dress (though I do feel like I'm doing kind of a bridesmaid duty... because the bride's supposed to look the best by far! You're welcome, Carey).

Anyways, I love to ramble. But recently, I went to D Bar Desserts in Hillcrest with some girlfriends for a major calorie splurge. Oops. D Bar was created by Keegan Gerhard & Lisa Bailey. Does Keegan's name sound familiar? Perhaps it's because he was on the Food Network and has been named one of the nation's top pastry chefs on numerous occasions and has worked alongside some pretty impressive names. Cool huh?

Something I really appreciated about my visit to D Bar was that Keegan was actually there, proving that he isn't some pretentious name that you never see. He was behind the bar getting orders together and visiting with customers to make sure that they were enjoying their food.


cake and shake. yes. a real life menu item. i died.

I also really liked that they strive to be a "destination dessert dining experience" where guests can not only indulge in some seriously incredible desserts but also make memories. They aspire to inspire.Yeah, I can definitely get behind that.

Plus, just a quick glance at the menu will have you drooling at your computer (if you're like me and look up the menus beforehand).

milk and cookies

On another note, I'm going back to barre tonight. My calves have finally regained feeling but I'm still pretty terrified. Wish me luck! And hair photos coming soon! (I'm telling you... I'm absolutely TERRIBLE at the solo photo. Oy.)

PS: I have QUITE the love story coming to you (hopefully) on Friday. But until then... if you're looking for some hope and love to tide you over, click here to read Laura's vows. I'm currently crying in my cubicle.

Holy cow--that cake looks incredible! It kind of reminds me of that moist delicious version in Matilda, only much better (and minus the creepy lunch lady!).
