Can Courtney Have It All?

Courtney's hoping to have the perfect career, man, and of course, outfit.

Episode 1: You Think You Know Me?!

The last time you all saw me on television, I was in a hot tub with Matt Nordgren

Well, pruned fingers and all, we finally got out…and then he never called me again. But I bounced back OK, don't y'all think?!

I am so glad that I have finally been able to catch y'all up on what I have been doing the past two years! As you will be able to see throughout this season of Courtney Loves Dallas, I am trying to figure out how to (maybe!) have it all…but as a woman, is that ever really possible?! Can a woman have the perfect career, the perfect friends, and the perfect family, all while trying to find their perfect man…and be wearing the perfect outfit?! Well, I am in the search to see for myself, and of course, I will make several mistakes along the way!

Here's a couple tidbits and sneak peeks into my life, and a little bit of what you will see this season on Courtney Loves Dallas:

- If you haven't figured it out already, fashion is a HUGE part of my life! Not only does it play a role in my career, but getting dressed up and planning outfits is therapeutic for me. One can generally guess my mood based on what I am wearing. But heck, isn't that the fun part about fashion? You can dress up and be whatever you want to be every single day!

- Humor is everything to me. I love to laugh, I love to be sarcastic, and I love to smile. I was told as a young child that "If you can get people to laugh, then you can get them to do anything." And I pretty much still try to live by the mantra!

- My girlfriends are like sisters to me. We fight and we disagree, but we love and support each other so hard! Tori put it best when she said that we are really different…but that's truly what makes our relationships so unique! 

- I would do anything for my mother. She is the biggest role model in my life and the woman I want to be when I grow up. She has taught me lessons about life and has displayed unconditional love to me 100% of the time…even when I probably didn't deserve it.

- The men in my life haven't been the most consistent. I've had a father who left and a handful of failed relationships…but despite that, I still truly believe in finding that one man who will be my soul mate and my forever person. I've been a hopeless romantic as long as I can remember. And although some people might say I am naive for believing that the fairytale can really happen, I just prefer to stay positive when it comes to love! I mean, love is supposed to be happy thing, right?!

- My mouth gets me into trouble more often than not, and I don't hold anything back, but I truly believe in being myself and doing what I feel…all the time…no matter what…but I have had to learn that if I am going to live like that, then I have to stand by my actions and words, and own up to them all the time as well.

I truly hope that there is a part of me that is relatable to every viewer of Courtney Loves Dallas on some level -- actually, I know that there is! Whether you are a man or a woman, young or old, you have probably, at some point in your life, chased a career dream, fallen in love, had your heart broken, had friends who've stood by you through thick and thin, or learned lessons the hard way! And that's exactly what I am doing….I just chose to do it with cameras around.

I would love to hear yall’s feedback about the show (but hey, lets keep it nice, shall we?!), so feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @thecourtneykerr! Or for the fashion lovers out there, don't forget to check out my style blog at www.thecourtneykerr.com!

See y'all next week!

Courtney

Matt, Mood Boards, and Marfa

Courtney explains how she made the best of all the stressful situations this week.

"Let's Just Make the Most of It"

When it comes to life and rough situations, my mother taught me one valuable lesson: MAKE THE MOST OF IT… And in tonight's episode of Courtney Loves Dallas, you see me do just that in several rough situations.

Let's walk through them, shall we?!

Rough Situation #1: The Matt Drama

Exes really know how to suck the life out of you, don't they?! And when it comes to playing with your emotions, they are quite genius. At the end of last week's episode, y'all were left with seeing me walk away from Matt Nordgren after he told me that we had "nothing." And I was happy with that decision. I had gone to dinner with the attitude of "let's MAKE THE MOST OF IT," and when I felt defeated, I exited. And I could've left it that. But one would think that when he chased me and then called over, and over, and over again that I would crumble and be putty in his hands again…BUT NO. Not only was I emotionally exhausted, but I was embarrassed… embarrassed that I hadn't seen him before for what he really was: Matt was all talk and no action. I had given him years of my life and I was done. D.O.N.E. And at that point there was nothing left to do than say goodbye.

Rough Situation #2: Bauble Bar Presentation

When it comes to work, I am typically great at leaving my personal life at the door, but coming off the heels of the Matt drama, I was flustered and overwhelmed, and in over my head…but thank God I hired my new assistant, Shannon, at the perfect time! She was really able to step in and help me reign it all in and stay organized for my big Bauble Bar presentation! I had been asked to create "mood boards" to present the collection via Skype (mind you I had no idea what a "mood board" was and still, quite frankly, have no idea!) but there was no way I could've made them all in such a short time frame (mind you: Mom's surgery recovery, the Matt dinner, and the Bauble Bar presentation were all within about 72 hours!). Despite my lack of creativity and artistic ability, I was hoping I could talk enough to distract them from the mess that was my "mood boards"…God might not have blessed me with the ability to draw, but he certainly blessed me with the ability to talk…so what else is there to do than MAKE THE MOST of what you've got! And that's exactly what I did, and thankfully, it worked!

Rough Situation #3: Girls Trip to Marfa

After the hellish week I had (Mom's surgery, Matt dinner, Bauble Bar stress, etc.), a girls’ trip with my best friends was exactly what I needed to revitalize and get my head back on straight -- good idea, Tori! Marfa was a small town in Texas that I had seen pictures and read stories about, but honestly when we got there, I felt like I had dragged the girls 8 hours away for nothing. Thankfully, despite the bicycle debacle and the awkward dinner, the Prada exhibit was the icing on the cake to make everything better! And honestly, I had my 3 best friends, no responsibilities, and no babies, so it was the perfect opportunity to, yep, you guessed it: MAKE THE MOST OF IT!

 

So there's only 2 episodes left of Courtney Loves Dallas, but still so much more to come! Stay tuned to see how the Bauble Bar collaboration turns out…find out about another job that I get to add to my already busy plate…plus, see what happens when things get heated during a fight with Tori!

And, as always, see all the details about my outfits on my blog, www.thecourtneykerr.com!

Courtney
