Food, Films and Fandom – Rural Mom goes to Hollywood! #GuardiansoftheGalaxyEvent #100FootJourneyEvent #ABCFamilyEvent

Life on the farm in the summertime, naturally, is pretty low key.  I generally spend lots of time talking to these guys:

Which is why you can imagine what an incredibly HUGE thrill it is to shake up my summer with an invite to a dream-come-true trip to Hollywood like this:

Disney, Marvel, DreamWorks and ABC Family all rolled up into one bouncy-bundle-of-fun press trip, oh my!

I’m sure it’s no surprise to you that I’m a huge fan of all things Disney and Marvel, after all Rural Mom offers regular entertainment features with a (not surprisingly) reoccurring theme.

I’m sure it’s also no surprise to you that I’m truly tickled to preview The Hundred Foot Journey if you’ve been following along with our #FoodieFriday features.

It may be a surprise to find out I’m a former 90210 mega-fan who tuned into every episode from the pilot show.

Which is why when you add up all the activities we’ll be embarking on in this epic Hollywood adventure, you may understand why I’m currently running around the farm willy-nilly shaking up my neighbors with my hoots and hollers of pure joy!

And why I’m feeling a wee bit nervous to be in the midst of so much celeb-dom… not to miss mentioning the talented array of rock star bloggers who will be traveling this journey with me…

(…this is, after all, a huge deviation from talking to chickens and cows all day!)

On the agenda for this very special trip is the stuff LA dreams are made of including:
