I’m Blasting Off to a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Red Carpet Event That’s Outta This World #GotGVol2Event
It was almost 3 years ago today that I traveled for my first ever Disney press trip. Ironically, it was for a little movie you may have heard of – called Guardians of the Galaxy. At the time, I was completely clueless – as in had NO idea what I was doing – how to act, how to dress, and I wince just thinking about the off-the-wall questions I must have asked with my starstruck eyes. Fast forward almost 3 years and seven Disney press trips later, I am walking LITERALLY down memory lane, this time on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Red Carpet. And that’s not all. This galactic adventure is only just beginning. See what’s in store for us April 18th – 21st as I join 24 bloggers for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Red Carpet Event That’s Outta This World.
Anyone love their “second breakfasts” too? We’re getting an insider look at the ABC show American Housewife, with a hilarious spin on parenting. Join us for a behind-the-scenes look and interview with star Katy Mixon over second breakfast as we chat everything about this popular primetime ABC show.

Are you rotten to the core? My nieces are most excited that we will get a sneak peek of Descendants 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the popular Disney Channel Original movie. Would you believe that I just saw this movie for the first time this week? Finally catching up with the craze, we’ll get to preview some of the scenes from Descendants 2 – I’m hoping for lots more songs and dances! Oh, and we’ll also be interviewing TBD cast of the movie. Say what?!
Descendants 2 is set to premiere this summer 2017, only on the Disney Channel. #Descendants2Event
Dancing with the Stars
Guess who’s dusted offer her old dancing shoes? This girl! I’m dancing the night away with none other than the dance troupe from Dancing with the Stars: Brittany Cherry, Britt Stewart, Hayley Erbert and Brandon Strong! These four may look familiar. This quartet of talented dancers perform on every episode – from backup dancers to special dance performances, celebrities to pros – even filling in for injured dancers as needed. We’ll get to chat with these professional dancers as well as get a private dance lesson from them. So exciting!
Look for the dance troupe on Dancing with the Stars, Mondays at 8/7c on ABC. #DWTS
Born in China
One thing I’ll never tire of, pandas. Yes, we will also be screening Disneynature’s newest film Born in China, in theaters this Earth Day. If you haven’t had a chance to check out my Born in China movie review, grab the details on the story, visuals and if this movie is safe for your kids to see, all from a spoiler-free parent point of view.
Born in China premieres Earth Day, April 21, 2017. Disneynature will donate a portion of the opening week of ticket sales to the World Wildlife Foundation. #BornInChina
No, not the yoga pose. Downward Dog, the new dog-loving show on ABC. This brand-new comedy follows the day-to-day life of Nan as told by her increasingly lonely and philosophical dog, Martin.

It’s like my blogging life has come full circle. And while I’m jumping up and down for just the opportunity to walk a Marvel red carpet (I say it again, Marvel. Red.
