The flurry of excitement engulfed the room, a steady building rev of the engine anticipating the thrill of the oncoming course. As Vin Diesel entered the room, emotions and accolades raced across the walls that could barely contain the full-throttled frenzy.
"Wow look at this wonderful reception," Vin Diesel said. "You guys! You didn't have to make me feel that good. My God! This is like... I need to walk in again."
Back in June, I partnered with our sponsor, FutureFood2050.com to help raise awareness of global food waste and what we as a global community can do to help. While I did receive a thank you gift for my time, I only share information I feel will benefit you as well.
In my June post, I shared the startling statistic that nearly 40% of food in America is wasted, and pledged to find out why we waste so much food when one in five Americans are classified as food insecure.

Remember these two girls? I certainly do! Whether you grew up here in the farming hills of the Appalachian range or on the hustle-and-bustle sidewalks of the big city, if you were watching television in the late 1990's, chances are you had it tuned to 90210. Well, two of our favorite crew are back again, this time in a delightfully humorous new sitcom, MYSTERY GIRLS (ABC Family, Wednesdays 8:30 pm ET/PT)
While visiting the set of MYSTERY GIRLS (more about that here: http://www.ruralmom.com/2014/07/on-set-of-mystery-girls-abcfamilyevent.html) our mom blogger group had the amazing opportunity to sit down with Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth and their co-star, Miguel Pinzon for some candid interview time.

We arrived at ABC Studios bristling with excitement. Many of us giddy from the thought that we were about to experience our very first live taping of a show. Others, entered with star-studded eyes, knowing we'd soon be in the presence of two very talented tv icons, Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth. Not even the "quiet on set," could contain the vibrant energy that filled the studio as twenty-five media-savvy bloggers settled into the audience.
I fall into both categories. Though I've been on movie sets before, I've never had the fortune to experience the behind-the-scenes action of a television studio. I also grew up with Tori and Jennie during their days on 90210. Double the excitement, double the fun of seeing them in their new sitcom adventure, MYSTERY GIRLS.
As the summer heat continues, the need to water our vegetable gardens, flowers and yards becomes a daily task. While I usually enjoy my time outside, I don’t enjoy using a leaky watering system. You know the kind- you turn on the water and the faucet waters the house while the spray nozzle sprays you, your shoes, runs down your arm and basically does everything but water what you wanted? That’s why I am happy to work with our sponsor LeakFree by Nelson to share this information with you. They were kind enough to send me a Leakfree starter kit to try free of charge.
