This past Thursday was a whirlwind. Let’s break it down, shall we?

Here’s a little background before we dive deep into the specifics:  I had been in New York City doing press for “Courtney Loves Dallas,” and woke up to news that there was a major ice storm coming through Dallas.  My flight was scheduled to land in Dallas from NYC at 705pm, and I was already stressing that if it got delayed I would miss my premiere party.

  • 1030am: American Airlines flight from NYC to Dallas is cancelled.
  • 1031am: Start crying.
  • 1032am: Frantically begin packing and decide to head to La Guardia Airport and find at least some airlines that is flying back to DFW Airport.
  • 1145am: American Airlines puts me on another flight.
  • 1146am: Purchase Spirit Airlines ticket on a whim, in hopes that at least one of my flights will make it back to Dallas.
  • 1205pm: Spirit Airlines flight delayed for the first time.
  • 1230pm: Spirit Airlines flight delayed for the second time. Begin to cry again.
  • 130pm: Spirit Airlines flight delayed for the third time. Order my first drink at the airport bar.
  • 131pm: Realize iPhone has 7% and begin to panic in search for a charger.
  • 145pm: Second American Airlines flight is cancelled.
  • 145pm: Tweet that I am stuck in La Guardia Airport and will be watching “Courtney Loves Dallas” from airport terminal.
  • 146pm: Fight a loud, mouthy woman from Jersey for an outlet in airport bar.
  • 205pm: Spirit Airlines announces they are boarding Dallas flight.
  • 220pm: Spirit Airlines flight finally boards.
  • 230pm: Let Mom know that I have made a flight back to Dallas.
  • 231pm: Forget to tweet that I made a flight back to Dallas.
  • 238pm: Phone dies.
  • 545pm: Land in Dallas.  Realize phone is still dead.
  • 546pm: Charge phone with UBS cord on my laptop (UMMMM, why I didn’t do this during the flight, I have no idea.)
  • 547pm: Call Tori, my best friend, and apologize for not telling her (of all people!) that I made a flight back to Dallas.
  • 555pm: Step outside in Dallas and bitch about how its so much colder in Dallas than in New York.
  • 600pm: Get in car and head to apartment.
  • 605pm-645pm: Slide down the freeway during the beginning stages of the ice storm.
  • 645-700pm: Console Mom via phone because the ice storm is keeping her in Fort Worth and she is upset that she can’t make it to premiere.  I assure her that doesn’t make her a bad mom.  Safety first.
  • 701-720pm: Attempt to fix my hair, then just add more dry shampoo so I don’t have to curl it.  Put on makeup over my airport face. Chug a glass of red wine. Tease hair again.
  • 725pm: Leave for premiere.
  • 815pm: Arrive at premiere.
  • 816pm-Present Day: Smile & enjoy the ride.

I can’t say it enough.  Thank you all for the overwhelming amount of tweets, emails, Facebook posts, and love you have sent me over the past 4 days.  You are why “Courtney Loves Dallas” will be a success….and I sure as hell can’t do it without you.

xo,

    Anto Ruiz - My sister and I are huge fans. You’re genuine and honest. You have a way of making us laugh then cry all in a matter of seconds. I appreciate how candid you are about your feelings towards Matt. I find it difficult to express my feelings on a daily basis, but can’t imagine doing it on nation television. It is impressive. His loss ! You deserve all the happiness in the world! Go, You!ReplyCancel
