My mom and I always say that there’s an exact moment the holiday season hits you, right in the heart.

Maybe you’re snuggled up with your five-year-old watching a holiday movie. Maybe you’re on your town’s version of the Santa Train, and the conductor is belting out “Jingle Bells.” Perhaps it’s the first time you’re seeing Santa Claus for the season, or the first time your child is. Maybe it’s a snowflake on your tongue, a just-right gingerbread cookie, or the sound of sleigh bells ringing. Whatever it is, it heavily involves your five senses. For me, it’s always smell. The smell of baking!

Believe it or not, the holidays are SO CLOSE! This is our time for family togetherness – where we honor traditions and food and drinks. Every year I look forward to Christmas Eve, where we bake cookies for Santa (and for loved ones, of course) and we stay up late watching movies and making a mess too! These are some of the memories I want my kids to remember forever. While they never stay up as late as we do, some of the best times are just us adults. My dad takes out a bunch of drinks and snacks and we get to work – talking, laughing, baking, and cleaning. It’s always a bit magical. A LOT magical.

Want to know the best part? Not only can you share your own holiday traditions, but you can win a trip to LA to see a private screening of The Greatest Showman! Do you shop at Sam’s Club too? Awesome. This holiday season, include Coca-Cola® as part of your tradition. Pick up Sprite® 4 pack 2 Liter, Diet Coke® 4 Pack 2 Liter, Coca-Cola® 35 pack cans, or Coca-Cola® 30 pack Mini Cans beverages from Sam’s Club, then upload your receipt for a chance to WIN a trip for two to Los Angeles featuring:

What are you waiting for? Get to Sam’s Club for your chance to win these amazing prizes! As a kid, we’d always go to a movie on Christmas Day. These days it’s harder because we have Christmas at my parent’s horse farm and they have seven grandkids, with two on the way. The kids range from newborn to age eight. There’s not an easy way for ALL of us to go to the movies, but that used to be our tradition. Who knows? Maybe we’ll start it as a new tradition! It’s always such a special time together.

These days there are so many parts to the wonder and magic of the holiday. There’s Christmas Eve with making all the magic for the kids. Then there’s that time where we’re all together but the kids are in bed. That’s when we kick back more.

We make a mess, and my parents put out the best snacks and drinks, with special straws while we get to work. I always joke that I could have just eaten a five-course meal, but the second I walk into my parent’s house, I’m looking through their fridge within the first five minutes! They never disappoint year-round, but there’s something about the holidays.

They always have a ton of snacks and Coca-Cola®!

And that’s one of the many things that makes the holiday season so special. It’s tradition and family. It’s special occasion food and drinks. And it’s making the magic with the kids, and then having our own little party after they go to bed!

So get to Sam’s Club and get your Coca-Cola® products for your opportunity to win this chance of a lifetime grand prize! And tell me – what are your holiday traditions? Are they anything like mine? I love how ours change every year, but some things always stay the same.

So, what are your best holiday traditions?

Easy, Delicious Chicken Fried Rice For Dinner

This post was sponsored by Tai Pei; all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Looking for a great meal? Look no further than #TaiPeiFrozenFood. Enter the #sweepstakes and enjoy a #coupon. #ad #IC #friedrice #chowmein #chickenfriedrice

Remember when I wrote about how much I love Tai Pei single serve entrees? Well, good news! Today I have info on yet another amazing flavor, a coupon for you to choose your own great meal, and a Tai Pei Sweepstakes! You simply must enter that one! You can win one of (10) $100 Walmart gift cards. It’s almost the holiday season, and who couldn’t use an extra $100 right now? So read on for all of that, and mainly, why I love Chicken Fried Rice so much! It’s a favorite here.

Fried Rice is endlessly exciting to me. There’s nothing not to love. I love chicken. I love vegetables. And I love rice a whole lot too. Chicken Fried Rice is easy to make for an excellent dinner. It’s ready in only minutes, and easily and perfectly cooked too. I love the peas and carrots and the consistency and flavor of the rice. It comes out steamy and delicious.

Tai Pei has an exciting lineup. On the night I had Chicken Fried Rice, Cassidy had Beef with Broccoli. He’s a sucker for Fried Rice so of course that was his first try earlier. Tai Pei entrees are new and great tasting – with exceptional flavor in each dish – and a range of tasty entrees. They are all made with real, pure ingredients, and no preservatives or artificial ingredients. There’s none of the bad stuff – just pure and delicious goodness. Tai Pei provides a delicious meal when on a budget, and helps eliminate the boredom of typical, everyday meals, with so many choices and interesting, delicious dishes.

I love that Tai Pei provides great options for meals at home, or at work too. The new packaging makes it quick and simple to prepare in just minutes in the microwave. And the entrees offer a wide range of choices – made with flavor-infused rice.

Next time I’ll be talking about Orange Chicken and maybe Beef With Broccoli, so stay tuned for that! You can connect with Tai Pei on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
