ATTENTION DESIGN NERDS: Tonight, Apartment Therapy Meet-Up.

It's true, I'm a little obsessed with interior design.

Not that I am an expert at it. I simply make an effort, wherever I have lived, and always on a tiny budget. Which makes you get pretty inventive, and at times, reckless.  I have so many paint-stained articles of clothing that I still insist on wearing, including an ugly, brown, workout top that has bright orange stains on it. Stains on the BOOBS.

Ross shakes his head in shame whenever I walk out of the house with it on.

Also, I have a mental list of design sites that I frequent. Like Design Crisis (run by two Austin girls!), Desire to Inspire, and - of course - Apartment Therapy. They are my version of internet porn.

Tonight, Apartment Therapy is hosting a meet-up at House + Earth on W. 6th St. for design nerds like us, organized by my friend, Apartment Therapy writer, and lovely fellow blogger, Adrienne Breaux.

Attendees are encouraged to bring an old design book (I've got plenty) to trade with someone else, and, House + Earth (a new local business, selling eco-friendly home decor products) will be taking us through a tour of their space. According to Adrienne, they've got a floor made of old wine barrels! 

See the Facebook event page here.

I'm so excited! Especially because I think these meet-ups are monthly. I will definitely be there, old design book in-hand.

When I get a new job, I will be getting a new place. Perhaps I will come to you for advice on making it look awesome. I'm 31 years old, and it will only be my second apartment. (I've been doing... other stuff...)
