Viewing Party Sunday night.

Ok.  I've thought about it for a couple weeks and i've decided to have an open invite for the viewing party on sunday.  
It's super casual sporty kinda Mexican bar in our neighborhood that has two huge projector tv screeny things and a lot of tequila.  (its a bit 'hollywood' for our neighborhood, but when in rome)

  Consider this a match against two boxers, but for design geeks.  

Michael and I will battle it out.  And yes, may the best woman win.    

i'll give the play by plan, or behind the scenes or totally shut up, whatever you want.

Besides, I've worked really hard on this blog and I figure now is the best time to try to get to know some of you that would possibly want to get to know me, too.

So you are hereby all invited to come to:  
Agave Cantina and Tequila joint
1745 N. Vermont Ave 
Los Feliz, CA 90027

Show starts at 7pm sharp, no dvr so if you come late you might miss the beginning. 

Valet, i think its only $3 and bring whomever you want.  
We will be there at 6pm. 

Leave in the comments if you are coming so i can have a rough head count.  
And no haters.  Don't even think about it. 

Because... 

 'Whether I win or lose, all i need are friends and booze'**

that's just a sampling of the kind of wisdom that could come out of my mouth on Sunday.  

** yes i really did make that up.

  2. Jealous! I love tequila! Also, that sounds like a fun party.

    You should make that little motto into a tshirt.

  3. I would love to come, although it is about 7 hours away..

    However, as one of your younger admirers (17 in a week!), I don't know if I would even be let in the bar. It'd be so lovely to meet you though, you're definitely an inspiration, and I've been rooting for you since episode one! (regardless of Vern's "monk prison" comment, I thought you're quirky personality, witty humor, and style made you my favorite)

  4. It's a long way from New Orleans, but I'll be there in spirit!

  5. Ahhh!! Hahahah win or loose quote is GREAT! Can we be friends please? I need someone fabulous who can style my interiors while drinking tequila and thinking of radical quotes. Plus I still live in PDX and I think you may belong here.

    GOOD LUCK! This is so exciting!!

  6. I'm so happy that we just moved to LA so we can be there and I really hope you win! I just discovered your blog recently and it totally cracks me up (who else can get away with using the word "douchey" on a design blog?!). Count the Hubs and me in!

  9. sounds like fun but I live all the way on the opposite side of the country in Florida. Doesn't mean I'm not gonna drink tequila and watch you kick Micheal's ass anyway!

  10. I'll have to settle on cheering for you via the Twitter party. :)

  11. Since I live on the other side of the country I will be there in spirit. Cheering you from my family room instead.

  12. gah. I'm only 6 months late (just moved to NC from Southern California).

    Well I'll pour a cocktail for my husband and I in your honor!

  13. if i wasn't on the other side of the country......

  14. Big fat bummer that your invite comes too many miles away from Chicago. I'll party via Twitter and drink a PBR!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wish Ohio was a little closer. I will be there in spirit. Good luck. ((((HUGS))))

  16. Just wanted you to know you've got a fan (well more than one I'm sure!) in Portland! Too far away to come to your viewing party but I'll be rooting for you!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. You had me at "booze and friends." There is a strong chance I can make this! Especially since I'm currently house hunting less than 30 minutes away from there–too funny. This final is all you Emily!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm gonna bring a crew. I gotta talk to my girls. We'll have the Emily Henderson - Dan Faires fans represent come Sunday night. Oh yes. :-) If you don't win and Dan doesn't get the online show I'll boycott HGTV. I'm not even KIDDING! LOL Call me. I need your help on my mood/ribbon board.

  19. Emily,

  22. Sad day! You have no idea how much I WANT to come. I would love to meet you slash (it is so much more fun to say slash instead of putting one) I have officially decided we should be friends. BUT it would probably be in my best interest not to drive the 22 hours and 34 min drive from TX the day before college starts.

    p.s. Thank you for emailing me back and giving me some advice...I started a blog!
    p.s.s. you should give a play by play/ backstage review of design star for those of us who can't be there :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would go, but I'm letting a family member borrow my plane that day dammit.

    On another note, I came up with the title for your show: "Emily's Hendersonofabitch that looks good." Feel free to pitch it to HGTV.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, I'm in Birmingham, Ala., so I guess I have to settle for my den! But that would be SO much fun. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You are gonna win Emily!! I will celebrate with you and for you on twitter:)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wish I could! That's a long drive from Chicago, though. I'll have my own party with tequila. In my PJs. On my couch. :(
    Man, I'm lame.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If I wasn't in Atlanta, GA I would totally come! I'll be cheering for you all the way!

  28. Hey Emily,

    Just wanted to say that I throughly enjoyed your room this past week on Design Star. I am a designer myself and was so inspired I wasn't able to get to sleep that night because of all the ideas swirling around in my head! Thanks so much for the inspiration. I wrote about the episode on my blog if you want to check it out.

    I would like umbrellas in mine please. Hehehehe

    My friend's son in North Holly wood makes T-Shirts you should look him up.

    I REALLY wish I could be there too. Love your spirit.

    I am also voting for Dan for an online show. His Jessy & James store design was Lovely.

    Maybe you can have some one adding to your blog from the party. :^) I know you will be too busy for that.

    May the Best WOMAN win. That would be YOU Hehehehe

  31. Oooh if only I could fire up a jetpack! Good luck and I'll be rooting for you!

  32. I would love to come out. Gotta convince the husband and find someone to watch the baby. I hope you win! I loved your design last week and have been staring at it all week to figure out how I can incorporate it in my master bedroom.

    ReplyDelete
  33. oooh, I wish I lived in LA! That sounds ah.mazing. I'm rooting for you to win on Sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Fun!! So here's the deal, I am a flight attendant by day (well, and night) and a design junkie by...I botched that...anyhoo, I am super tempted to see if there's a trip with an LAX layover that night instead of wherever it is I'm currently scheduled to be. However, I'm feeling a slight stalker vibe about that. Perhaps I can talk my best friend into coming, too... so maybe! Either way, I'm rooting for you!!

  35. Hi, Emily -- Bridget here from PTown. Wish I could be there for the viewing. I hope you call me when you win!!

  42. Wish I could be there! I love you are in the top two!!! Your glass house design was to die for! I wanted to move in! I HOPE you win!!!!! xo

  43. Sister, you know I'd ride the acrylic bar cart right in and then fill it FULL of cocktails if I lived closer! Bah. Stupid desert. You better believe I'll be pouring a drink the size of my face and enjoying your win from my ugly sofa though. I'll be sure and post something totally inappropriate when I watch you take the title! Woot!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Sacramento isn't that far, but little sister is visiting from OR and won't pass for of-age, so it doesn't look like we'll make it. ;( BUT, Brian's fam is having a viewing party at their house up here that Frank told me to crash. lol. Either way, I'll be watching you on Sunday. I really wish I could make it to LA. Have a margarita on the rocks for me (with salt and green olives, trust me)!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Cassi I was so following you down the margarita road until you said green olives. I trust with salt & rocks ;-) HAHA

  46. Sending best wishes to you from down south in Fort Worth, Texas! Regardless of you winning or losing, I'm glad I found your blog! :)

  47. Sarah introduced me to the show while I was helping her with the new baby. We have had so much fun watching you in the competition. Hopefully we will continue to be able to view your wonderful talents -- on your own show! Cheers to you!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Count me in! Found out about you on Apartment Therapy earlier this week and loved you and your style instantly. I followed links to Design Star and have been watching episodes of your season non-stop for the last two days trying to get caught up in time for the finale. I'd be crazy not to go.....one of the perks of living in LA again, meeting some super crazy cool and talented people. See you then! You are so winning this thing!!!!
