Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Event

I am back in LA for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Event and wait until you see this insane schedule. This trip is full of so many great interviews, screenings, and more. Take a few minutes to see all that I will be sharing so you can hop on social media and follow along while it’s happening live.

The fun begins on Tuesday night as we head to the Walt Disney Studios for the screening of Dineynature’s BORN IN CHINA which I had the opportunity to see during the #BeOurGuestEvent last month.

Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film “Born In China” takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts.

And a mother snow leopard–an elusive animal rarely caught on camera–faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain–from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest–on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together.


After the screen we will be having dinner & drinks, so you have been forewarned – there will be food and drink photos in your feed!

We will start our morning at the  ABC Building where we will be seeing a special preview screening of the series premiere Pilot and episode 102 “Boundaries” of “Downward Dog”. 

Based on the web series, “Downward Dog” is about a struggling millennial, Nan (Emmy-nominated Allison Tolman, “Fargo”), from the view of her lonely and philosophical dog, Martin. One session at obedience school already makes them realize that even at their worst they may be the best thing for each other.

We will have an opportunity to have a Q&A session and  photos with Allison Tolman (“Nan”) and Samm Hodges (Co-Creator / Executive Producer AND the Voice of “Martin,” the dog)

I am looking forward to hanging with Katy Mixon (Katie Otto) again. She is so happy, funny and full of life.  We will be having a “Second Breakfast” in honor of “Katie Otto” and friends’ favorite meal after their kids’ school drop-off. Food along with a special preview screening of “American Housewife” episode “The Club” will be followed by  Q&A and photos with the “American Housewife” star.

Katie Otto (Katy Mixon, “Mike and Molly”), a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three. She raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring.

  1. I like the idea of the outdoor fabric on the cuosihns – never thought of that!  I am having to refinish my floors because of sun and heat damage – The power of the sun can be pretty brutal.

  2. We got the elongated toilets as standard in our home. I’d never really thought about it, personally. I just hope they’re not too much taller, like CMM says, because that’ll make it harder for my 3.5 and 1.5 year olds to get themselves up on the potty!Amanda recently posted..
