Holiday Happiness + Giveway!

The last weekend Matt the kids and I went out and did a mad rush of holiday shopping. And afterexactly, 17 minutes and 30 seconds of shopping, the little man was demanding to be fed. We went to our go to choice: The Cheesecake Factory.

It’ s a place where there is something for everyone, and that is not always so easy to achieve when you have a toddler and 9-year-old. Thank goodness for the large m enu that consists of dishes that are made from scratch using fresh ingredients. Usually everyone orders their favorite, but that day, we went for a few different ones and ate like we usually do: picking off each other plates, laughing, talking and just being plain silly.


Now if only shopping was this seamless. But to help things along, we did pick up a few Cheesecake Factory gift cards. Of course my boys really didn’t mind this because for every $25 gift card purchased, we received a Slice of Joy card for a free cheesecake slice*. While the Slice of Joy cards are redeemable on a future visit in 2017, they talked me into a slice right then. Admittedly, it didn’t take too much arm twisting, because their seasonal Peppermint Bark Cheesecake is one of my favorites.

I’m a sucker and a big softy for pleading eyes, especially during the holidays. My boys know how to play me, and I know how to let them.


*Offer available on gift cards purchased in-restaurant or on by 12/31/16.  Slice of Joy card redeemable on a future visit 1/1/17 – 3/31/17 for one complimentary slice of cheesecake or layer cake. One card per guest. Must be present. Valid in the United States including Puerto Rico.

    Gotta admit, I’ve been very happily surprised by their vegan cobb salad… And the view from the Union Square location is quite breath-taking!

    I’m a sucker for a slice of FREE cheesecake – thanks Naomi for mentioning this offer – my daughter and I are planning on hitting the stores this evening to (hopefully) knock out ALL our shopping and am thinking we need to hit Cheesecake Factory afterwards! Merry Christmas to you, Matt and y’alls boys!
