Celebrating Lily’s 9th Birthday at Cheddar’s!

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen recently reached out to us to ask if we would like to celebrate their grand opening here in Harlingen.  They just opened a brand NEW restaurant here in June.

After browsing their menu, of course we said yes!  I immediately thought of inviting our good friend Vianney from

We had already planned for her to come over to celebrate Lilyana’s 9th birthday and having Vianney’s daughters (her best friends) there would be the perfect surprise for her!

We decided to make a girls’ day of it and bring all our daughters for some fun and great food.

We enjoyed a delicious appetizer, hearty entrees and refreshing drinks from the menu.  From the atmosphere, to the servers and the food – everything felt so special!

These two little cuties couldn’t wait to hang out together and had such a great time.  It had been way too long since our family meetup and Lily’s 9th birthday was the perfect opportunity to connect with our Texas familia!

For our appetizer, we ordered the Chips and Queso with beef.  It was so, so good ya’ll!  And it even came with a side of salsa!  We ate every bite and I definitely recommend getting seconds!

With Vianney being the queen of cocktails, we had to try some of the unique drinks from Cheddar’s too!  She went with the Shaker Margarita and I had their massive Pain Killer cocktail.  You might need some help drinking this one!

Both drinks were absolutely stunning.  Perfect for Instagram!

After the dinner was over, we headed back to our house to continue the party with some delicious cheesecake and gift opening.  Vianney and her girls were so sweet and gave Lily the most adorable pan dulce bracelet from Sweet Craft Jewelry!

The bracelet was covered in conchas, pink cake, orejas, marranitos and more.  She also got a little pair of chocolate concha earrings.

And…I also vlogged our whole visit so we could share it with you!  Want to see?
