I have been posting about a lot of events lately. It seems that this is the time of year for design events!

Last night I went to HGTV’s Wine and Design event at the Top of the Rock, an event that celebrated HGTV’s top design talent. I am an avid HGTV watcher (OK, I’m pretty obsessed) from their real estate programming to their competition shows. It’s all in good fun, and I always seem to find something new or inspirational every time I tune in.

Anyway, I had a great time and I thought I’d share a few photos from the event…then we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming.

First, let me just tell you how beautiful the view is from the top. A-ma-zing. And everyone from HGTV is so tall. And tan.

There were probably 100-150 people there, and the wine was a-flowin’.

The Design Star judges: Vern Yip, Genevieve Gorder, and Candice Olson. Hopefully Candice will forgive me for asking her to do my Mom’s living room. I get the feeling she gets asked that a lot!

The curly-haired lady in the nerd glasses you see in all of the photographs is me.
