My engagement ring is back.  Better than new!  All buffed out and shiny.  It’s beautiful 🙂

Just as exciting is what came along with my engagement ring this time…

Good lord my camera does nothing for these rings.  Seriously they’re absolutely perfect and beautiful.  Tomorrow when it’s pretty outside I’ll take a picture of them with Zach’s SLR to give good detail.  They’re amazing, and just another reminder of how close we are!

15 days! WOOOOOOOOT! 🙂

Blogger Date

Another very fun part of tonight was my first blogger meet up at Crave in downtown Denver.! 🙂

I unfortunately didn’t think to break out my camera during dinner because I was just enjoying the conversation, dinner, and drinks with a new friend.

But no worries, there are  pictures that can be found online, so I’ll make sure you guys still get a some idea of our evening 🙂

Crave is a dessert bar and lounge that has a very low key, but fun vibe.  When I got there at 6, it was pretty empty, but it was more full by the time we left a little after 8.  I have a feeling the bulk of their business is more late night.  Which is actually perfect because it’s there if you want it for a quiet dinner and drinks for a date, or a more happening night later in the evening.

We were both super hungry so we decided to do entrees with our drinks.  I went with the grilled cheese with beat chips and it was pretty solid.  It was more like bruchetta really, but still full of good flavor.

There was pesto gnocchi on the menu and I had a little bit of menu remorse after, but I will definitely be back for more Crave 🙂

With our dinners we both enjoyed a rosy moscato which was very light, flavorful and refreshing.  Being a dessert bar and lounge, their obviously known more for their drinks and desserts.

We both felt bad for our boys at home, so we decided to take dessert to go.  We both went with the Chocolate Thrill, which was by far the highlight:

Chocolate flourless cake with hazelnuts.  Fresh peach ice cream.  Fresh bing cherry chutney. Apricot Coulis. Candied Hazelnuts. Vanilla bean chantilly. Caramel chip. Dark chocolate ganash.

Amazing!  I can see why their known for the desserts.  I really wanted to try a macaroon after seeing them all over their website, but they only  have them during the afternoon unfortunately.

Overall I would absolutely go back to Crave for drinks and a girl night, and I’d actually love to try it for brunch.

Both of our entrees tonight were 12 dollars and plated beautifully.  And our glasses of wine were 6, so that’s hard to beat.   Next time I will go with the gnocchi though 😉

I’m sorry I didn’t bring out the camera to take pictures of the food, but I’m so glad that I was able to get out this afternoon and enjoy a new friend.  That meant more to me then good pictures at the time, and you know what I’m OK with that 🙂

Meeting new people is just another reason to love this little blog and the community.  It’s so easy to meet great people who have similar interests and I’m forever thankful for that :).

You really can never have enough good people in your life, right? 🙂

Now it’s time to finish my amazing dessert (thank you Crave!) and enjoy my family!

Long run in the morning.  Send speedy thoughts my way!

  1. What a decadent dessert! Wow, so much to describe. I can tell your rings are beautiful but I am definitely looking forward to seeing them taken with an SLR! I could never take a good photo of mine.
