Onwards and Upwards- Fly in the Sky

Kids' on leashes... check! 30 Mile detours as the result of going old school with printed directions instead of google maps.... check! Double checking with the security guard that it's ok to have a belly button ring in the scanner machine, only to have the rest of the security guards laugh and exclaim
"It's going to be a belly button ring kind of day boys"
.... check! In my defense that machine is scary as hell looking and I've been in enough MRI machines to know that metal and magnets don't go well together. I think it was a perfectly fair question. YUP- this is me trying to navigate an airport by myself.
Packing and leaving my baby and lil sis.
 
(Forcing dad to stop for a starbs pee break and admiring the fact that I actually threw on matching clothes at 6am.)


SO my phone died on the way to the airport. YAY for having it fully charged because we needed those google maps. So now I'm camped out on the floor... because it was the only outlet I could find to charge my phone, which ironically I can't even use, but who knows when you'll need some solitaire or yahtzee to pass the time.

 Oh and lets be real, we all know I'm trying to get a pic of the kid on the leash. I mean who does that? (Actually I'm sure lots of people do that, because losing a kid would be scary and chasing them would be annoying and yes I'm about to compare children to pets, but we put them on leashes right?) Thank goodness for noise cancelling headphones (J, you're a lifesaver) because this kid and I are not going to get along on this flight. Why can't parentals give their kid a benadryl like people do with their pets? Seems logical to me. (Full of maternal instincts this one -_-) 

Now that I'm settled and recharging, the panic attacks about my luggage are starting to set in. My suitcase is vintage ghetto fabulous. It says Bonjour around it repeatedly, which more than makes up for the lack of quality, because hello, its Parisian (Actually its more of a french thing but Parisian sounds cooler. It's not even french it just says a french word, but it excites me.) Sigh... someday.
 
But my suitcase, missing a few handles, tears, broken zippers and I don't have a TSA lock. Most likely they're going to search my bag which I managed to pack like a pro. But I can just imagine how my vibrators, bullets and ben wa balls are going to look under Xray. This is how profesh my packing was, I even remembered to take out a battery from each B.O.B. (Battery Operated Boyfriend) just so that they wouldn't accidentally turn on. But I'm sure anything resembling small balls or a phallus will trigger some sort of red flag. I'm starting to think it may not have been the wisest of ideas to leave my bright red bra right on top, that may illicit some probing.
(Staring out at the luggage loading... getting nervous) 

Captain Mike and Mark and SASSY Tim (how the captain introduced him which made my life), my flight attendant. Not a full flight, so I have both seats to my self. Things are looking up! Oh did I mention there is a top notch 6'5 Hottie, one row behind me and on the opposite of the aisle. Guaranteed he's going to catch me staring. (What... I'm a single 20 something.) But honestly, I just want to hang out with sassy Tim.
(Sneak shot of either Mark or Mike, not sure.)
 
(Celeb Styles- I may have been getting bored at this point.)

(Thinking about either how low the window is, or how tall I am. Also, just thinking... when you're in the sky, your mind just wants to fly)

SO this week. Doctors. Doctors. Doctors. I've had a month to feel like me again and it's been amazing. I've had my ups and downs and every other emotional experience I could muster the energy up for. I fan-girled over a guy (legit I was convinced we were going to fall in love because a. He was taller than me, and b. he had excellent taste in sports teams.) But actually, I. Fan. Girled. Think tween at a One Direction concert because of sports. (I apologize to those who had to listen/watch me fangirl that night- I was sleep deprived!)

My dad's girlfriend so eloquently put it while I was screaming at the TV during wildcard football games, mowing down on wings, and referring to relationships as "unnecessary"....
"Courtney- you should have been a dude, I mean you kind of are, in a girls body!"
EH could be worse. This is why Dexter is the perfect man for me.
 

But anyway... this week: dentist, hem/onc (Hematology Oncology- Blood Cancer Doc to check to make sure the treatment didn't trigger leukemia.) Radiation- to talk about the residual radiation effects that have been kind of plaguing me. Then my personal fav- Dr. D. Oh poor Dr. D. I don't know if he knows whats coming. Lets just say he's on vaca this week and so I'm seeing him Monday and this is the calm before the tornado currently known as Courtney whirls in. Let the boning questions commence. (I say this like there is an actual candidate... accepting applications ;) !) 

So this week... I'm going to snuggle the crap out of my mom and sister. Miss Dexter like crazy, no actually I already have separation anxiety. Get over my cheapness and buy an over the shoulder boulder holder that actually holds the boulders in. I get it, I want to slim down, but I can't keep suffocating my tata's because I assume I'll lose weight in my canons and then my bras will just fit. 

So I'm going to chat up Sassy Tim. (That has actually made the whole flight the best EVER!) I'm fangirling ;) Maybe he'll even take a pic with me! Challenged accepted! (update: challenge failed. I was too excited to get off the plane)

Let the week begin.
(Celeb styles waiting for the mamma and the seestor to pick me up "You'll know its me, I'm wearing my Buckhorn Dinner Jacket and Camo- Basically the ultimate Canadian Country Girl outift!")

  1. All of the I.P.O. proceeds went to Mr. Kors and other selling shareholders. The company itself did not raise any money in the offering.Mr. Kors, 52, perhaps best known for his role as a judge on the fashion reality show “Project Runway,” sold about $117 million worth of stock on the deal, and maintains an 8.6 percent stake michael kors outlet online that is worth some $400 million.
    The following night, Kors arrives at his new shop on Nanjing Road, not far from Tory Burch and Abercrombie & Fitch stores and just across the street from where Chairman Mao’s former home has been turned michael kors outlet online sale into a museum. He’s here to cut a ribbon, to christen the place, and Miranda Kerr was invited to help. The store is packed with photographers. “They must be here for Miranda,” he says, bounding off into the crowd with that arm-swinging, sideways walk he uses to close out his runway shows.Kors’s origin story in the world of fashion is about as American as apple pie — or, as was the case for a Jewish boy growing up in suburban New York, Sunday-night Chinese. His “liberal and out-there” mother, a former model who attempted to michael kors wallet try out for the Philadelphia Eagles football team (“at 128 pounds, she wasn’t what they had in mind”), was loving but far from doting, allowing her young teenage son to take unchaperoned weekend trips into the city with friends. There wasn’t a time when he didn’t care deeply about theater, fashion and the theater of fashion.

  2. The first step, of course, is a cute little crossbody bag in a Miami-ready color. We’d go with the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Crossbody, filled with essentials like Kors’ classic aviators and slightly sparkly small leather goods. (It’s South Florida, after all – go shiny or michael kors outlet online go home.) Oh, and we can’t forget a watch; fashionably late is one thing, but chronically tardy is another, and the most stylish thing is to know the difference. Dab on a little lip gloss michael kors outlet and perfume and you’ll be set from poolside brunch to after-hours dance party. You can shop a full selection of Kors’ Basel-ready pieces at MichaelKors.com.
    But something goes awry circa the handles. I like the michael kor outlet store knotted shoulder strap – it seems appropriate on this kind of bag where it might look cheap on something more tailored or formal. But then there’s the tote straps for hand-carrying, and they’re so plain michael kors wallets and flat that they look like a complete afterthought. The shoulder strap isn’t so ridiculously long that you couldn’t use it to carry the bag by hand or in the crook of your arm, so michael kors outlet online sale why add them on anyway?
    I think it might be. Or perhaps the problem is that his brand doesn’t emphasize it enough – I’m not exactly sure what the issue is, but the brand hasn’t mk purses outlet “caught” as a major power in handbags like one would expect when you consider the huge financial and marketing arm that the brand has behind it.I talk about Princess Michael Kors himself every week in michael kors outlet online sale my Project Runway recap, but it’s much more rare that we sit down and discuss one of his handbag designs in a serious way, despite the fact that His Royal Highness’s brand put out a michael kors outlet big line of bags every season.

  3. Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Carla Bruni have been spotted wearing the signature red-bottom shoes. The designer opened his first store in Paris when he was 19. He red sole shoes now has 80 shops worldwide.When asked on "CBS This Morning," Louboutin told the co-hosts that red "has to" Louis Vuitton Outlet be his favorite color now. He chose the striking hue to be the color of the soles of louboutin shoes his shoes for a very specific reason.
    Mixed in with the other numbers in our New Balance October mbts 2014 preview was the New Balance 572, a seldom seen model that’s popping up now under the Elite christian louboutin outlet Edition banner. One of the pairs in the mix that will be floating into retailers in the coming red bottoms shoes weeks is this one, which reminds us just a bit of Burn Rubber’s first foray into the world new balance of NB between the silvery grey combo and the gum on bottom. They’re not in the US just christian louboutin shoes yet as far as we can tell, but we’ll give you a heads up when they land. In christian louboutin outlet the meantime, check out more on this New Balance 572 Elite Edition below.
    The red-sole treatment was born more out of accident than design. One afternoon, a prototype Louboutin was working on just didn't "pop." An Nike Air Max 2015 assistant was painting her nails at the time.

  4. The memory of her shabby secretarial skills still makes her laugh out loud: “Gerry gave me the first memo to type. It took michael kors uk me, like, half the day, and she came to me and said, ‘I thought you said you typed really fast,’ and I said, [she switches to a tiny, sheepish voice] ‘Well, compared to my friends [I do].’?”What Sweeney lacked in IBM Selectric skills, she made up for in her ability to critically assess TV movies and specials that might end up on the network. Not much later, Laybourne, a former schoolteacher herself, taught her the art of negotiation the low-tech way. Sweeney would sit at her boss’s side as Laybourne haggled into the telephone receiver. “We didn’t have michael kors outlet online a speakerphone,” says Sweeney. “So I would listen to what she was saying to someone we were buying a series from, and then she’d get off the phone and say, ‘OK, remember when I said that? Well, then he said this.’ And I learned to negotiate by listening to half the conversation and having the other half filled in.”
    The mini-show followed lunch for 20 or so top clients at Holt’s Cafe yesterday following a fête at his Bloor Street store on Wednesday night, with hostess Hilary Weston presiding over the affair in an aqua Oscar de la michael kors Premium Outlets Renta tunic and pants.Elsewhere there was much Michael Kors Spring 2013 about, including a dermatologist in a colourblock dress, and a capital markets trader a peony pink sheath. After tucking into sweet pea ravioli, lobster over fried green tomatoes and a sliver of cheesecake, there was an exodus downstairs to the racks of fall clothes available for special order.
    There are some who think a woman will never climb that high in this field, that the entertainment industry’s glass ceiling is too hard for even the sharpest tiara to pierce. But as with the notion of balance, Sweeney michael kors tote isn’t buying it.“I’ve never signed up for the glass ceiling idea,” she says. “I always felt it was placing a limitation on myself and on every other woman. I believe I’m going to succeed and fail based on what I do, based on my intellect, based on the decisions that I make, based on the people that I choose to work with . . .We can all figure out reasons why we didn’t succeed. Or we can just blow past everything.”
    The movie’s focus on female friendship drew Allen to the role, as did its portrait of midlife 2015 michael kors outlet women who have fun going after — and getting — exactly what they want. "The story starts out with Jessica’s character’s husband having just died; he was older, she was a second marriage for him, and the movie shows that you don’t have to be 20 to have an incredible relationship," she says. "There’s a lot of variety and possibilities out there."Allen is concentrating more on spending time with friends and her 14-year-old daughter, Sadie, than on romance at the moment (she and Sadie’s father, Peter Friedman, split in 2002). "I’m not really dating, but I’m open to michael kors outlet it," she says. "I was never a big dater, ever, and sometimes I feel the same as I did in high school!" She smiles and rolls her eyes when contemplating what’s in store for Sadie’s teenage years.
