My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Wednesday night dinner at the Spaghetti factory.

It is Wednesday night and I am going out to dinner with my friends at Spaghetti Factory. We have gone here several times and always had a good time. Now I was looking forward to tonight as I get to meet a new friend Jennifer, she has been following my blog and has now joined our group and is coming out tonight for the first time and that is so awesome. I have actually met several girls over the last month or two that follow my blog and that still amazes me as when I started my blog, I never really thought anyone would even find it let a lone read it and now I am meeting some of them, this is my 1127th blog which means I have been out at least that many times as Susan.

Now Julie Texted me to see if I was going and she was planning on going so I told her I would pick her up, it really is not that far out of my way and way more fun to go together plus we get a chance to talk more. I took my time getting ready and was on my way by 5:30. I got to Julies just before 6 and she was ready, it was so great to see her again. We talked for a few minutes before leaving. It was so nice to talk on the way. We got to Spaghetti factory about 6:40 so we were a little early as we were meeting at 7 for dinner. Now they were busy as usual. Julie and I went in and the ladies at the front desk asked how many we had. I wasn’t sure as from posting in group I told them 6 to 8 as I am hoping we will have a good turnout again tonight. They said it would be about 20 to 30 minutes so Julie and I sat and talked as we waited for others to show up.

Barb was the first to show up followed by Kris and then another girl who is knew to our group. Her name is Summer and she seems really nice and it was great to meet her. Next to show up was Jennifer for her first time out, it was great to meet her also. We got to meet two new people tonight. Lauri was the last to show up so we had 7 tonight which is another good turnout for a Wednesday night dinner. Shortly after Lauri arrived our table was ready and we were seated. Now we sat and talked a little before ordering, I got a chance to talk with Jennifer and Sumer a little and get to know them better which was wonderful. I am really liking the fact we are getting some of our newer members to come out. Now Summer is full time so she goes out all the time but this was Jennifer’s first time out and she was doing awesome, you really couldn’t tell. I remember how I was my first few times out, I was so scared and if not for the Help of Alice, Lori and Cassandra I am not sure I could have made it through. So, I really like being there to help others like I was helped.

We ordered dinner and kept talking, I was sitting between Julie and Kris so I got a good chance to talk with them also. I really do enjoy talking with Julie as we really do have so much in common. Jennifer was doing awesome too and was chatting with all of us as though she had been going out for years, it was nice to see. Now I did take a selfie or two as I am trying to get a picture when I go out. I also took a few pictures of Jennifer as I thought it was important for her to have a picture on her first night out.

We had a wonderful dinner and were treat wonderfully here as always. The night went by so fast and soon it was after 9 and time to call it a night. it really was such a wonderful night out with friends. I really do hope Jennifer and Summer come out again with our group. We all said goodbye and Julie and I left. It really was nice to talk on the way home. I dropped Julie off and headed for home. I am hoping we can do dinner again next Wednesday and Julie can make it again and maybe Cassandra.

Sunday night working at Starbucks as Susan

It is Sunday and I have some work to do, studding for a course I am taking and yes, I have been doing it as Susan at Starbucks and what better way to do it. I got ready and was on my way, I got to Starbucks about 4pm. I am still going to the one just a little farther from my house as they are open till 8:30 instead of 7. I went in and they were really busy, I had to take one of the small tables by the door. I put my computer on the table as it was the only table open and just a couple seats at the counter along the window.

I went up and ordered my drink and waited for it before going and sitting down. I got my computer out and the first order of business was to write my blog from Saturday night at the Escape which was a fun night. I worked on this till about 5 and also took care of some e-mails. Now it was time to start my course which takes about 3 hours or so. Now it is fun to do this as Susan, 10 years ago I was just getting the nerve to go out in groups, I never would have thought I would be going to Starbucks by myself and doing work or taking courses. Now yes, the courses I am take are in my male name and there is no way they would ever know I was doing it as Susan but still amazing how far I have come over the last 10 years. The end of March I will once again go to Diva Las Vegas, this will be my 8th time I think and I will live for 9 to 12 days as Susan full time. Traveling, checking in and out of hotels and everything else that goes along with it. I don’t even take any male clothes as a matter of fact other then my Drivers license and 1 credit card I have nothing else of my male side. It really is a great and invigoration vacation.

Now by about 6 it was less busy and as my battery was running down, I moved over to an open table by the window to plug it in. I did get another drink, as I worked. It really was a fun night and I think I get more done here as Susan than I would at home. I finished my course a little after 8 and then just played on the computer till 8:30 when I left.

Saturday night at the Escape

It is Saturday and once again I am going to the Escape tonight. I posted it in our group but have got no replies so I don’t know if anyone else will be there although I am pretty sure I can count on Lauri around 10 to show up. I took my time getting ready as I always like to look my best. It was about 5 when I was ready and out the door. I got to the Escape and found a parking spot right in front which is always nice. They were a little busy but most were sitting at the bar so I sat down at my normal table and got out my computer and then went and ordered a drink and dinner.

My food came and I was still trying to catch up on e-mails but I put my computer aside for now. Robyn showed u and shortly after her Kris and Michelle so there were 4 of us here by 6 which is really good. Now they did have the jukebox up a little loud tonight so it was a little hard to talk but not as bad as when Karaoke starts. Now of course I tried to talk them all into going to Diva Las Vegas, they all sounded interested but Michelle was the only one who said she would probably go, she was there last year with us so I think she will. It really would be fun to get a big group from Portland going again. Well with all of us here I put away my computer and we all sat and talked which really is nice and makes for an enjoyable evening. I think that is why I like our Wednesday night dinners so much.

Now as the night went on it got a little busier and another girl from our group showed up. She saw my post about Diva Las Vegas and is thinking of going as she enjoys it also, she couldn’t make it last year but has gone the previous 2 or 3 years so I am thinking she will go also. I really need to reach out to Julie and see if she can make it. Also have to reach out to Laura and Kate as they also went last year. Cassandra, Veronica and I have all booked rooms at the Four Queens Hotel where we stayed last year. A smaller hotel casino downtown but very nice and they don’t charge the resort fees yet. I booked a premium room for 9 night for half the cost of a regular room on the strip for the same nights.

Diva Las Vegas will be so much fun and I am really looking forward to it, 11 days living as Susan and of course long pretty acrylic nails for the week. If any of you reading are interested there is still time to sign up, check out the Diva Las Vegas web page Mach 31st to April 5th. There will be 150+ t-girls there during this time although they will be spread out. It really is a lot of fun.

It got later and Karaoke started and that was time for Michelle to leave and Kris left not long after. Now tonight was a good night for karaoke as I knew most of the song that people sang which is always better as I can sing along from the comfort of my chair. It was just a little before 10 when Lauri showed up so we had a total of 5 of us here tonight, not a huge group but a nice sized one. Now I did remember to get a couple selfies, this was the best.

Now I did have a couple ladies again tonight tell me how good I looked and I can’t tell you what an ego boost that is, I really do love hearing this as it makes you feel good. I hadn’t planned on being out to late one of the reasons for going early but that didn’t work as I stayed till 11:30 before saying my goodbyes and heading for home. It really was a wonderful night out.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what is new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at oldtown pizza downtown Portland

It is Wednesday and our group is having dinner at Oldtown pizza downtown, we have gone here many times before as a group but I think this is only my 3rd time. Melissa and I decided this on Saturday and she posted it in the group so I am hoping it will be a good turnout as we have had several girls post they would be here tonight. Now it has been a long day so I was hoping to go early just to get a little more Susan time. I started getting ready a little after 4. I really enjoy this part as there is just something about the time, I take becoming Susan. I was ready and on my way about 5:45. There was a little more traffic tonight so it was almost 6:30 when I got downtown but that was still early as we were not meeting till 7. I lucked out and found a parking sport right in front and went in. I sat down at the bar and ordered a drink.

It was only a couple minutes and Joan came over turns out she had been here for a while, she had a table for 8 already so we went back and sat down and talked for a little bit. It was about 6:45 when Cassandra showed up. It was so good to see her again as she has not been getting out much lately. Last time we got together I think was early September when we went to dinner. We talked a little about Diva Las Vegas, Cassandra has already booked her room, I am hoping to know by the weekend and book my room as it is coming fast March 31st to April 5th Veronica
has
also booked her room so we have 3 for sure going, yes I am counting myself. Melissa showed up just before 7 and shortly after her Kris, Barb, Lauri, Kitty and Kimberly showed up so we had 9 of us here tonight. Tonight, was one of our bigger turnouts in a long time, it really was great to see so many out.

We all talked for a while then we went up and ordered food, Cassandra paid for it and we all chipped in money. We had some of their cheese bread which is incredible, could have made a dinner out of that and then of course we had pizza. They really do have really good pizza here. Now I did get a selfie tonight. Our pizza came and we had a nice dinner as we all sat and talked, I ate to much pizza tonight but it was so good.

Now even after dinner we sat and talked for a while and about important things like nails, well we also talked about Diva Las Vegas, our group and dinners, and the cruise our group did. Actually, we are talking about doing an Alaskan cruise which would be fun as I have always wanted to go to Alaska. Now they are talking this fall which I may not be able to make so I am hoping we can do it next year.

It was such a wonderful night and it was about 9:45 when we called it a night, yes, I stayed out later than I planned and although tomorrow I will be tired it was so worth it. We really do have an awesome group and I have wonderful friends. Thanks for reading and be sure and see what is new on my most recent blog.

Diva Las Vegas is March 31 to April 5th and I have my vacation set. Cassandra and I are going to Diva Las Vegas, we have Reservations at the Four Queens downtown Las Vegas. Still time to sign up if you are interested. Check out the Diva Las Vegas web page at http://divalas.vegas/ and if you want to stay where Cassandra and I are staying check out the Four Queens http://www.fourqueens.com/ we have gone for several years and it is so much fun.

Sunday Susan time at Starbucks

Sunday afternoon and some Susan time. Yes, it is Sunday and I have some more studding to do and yes, I am going to Starbucks as Susan to do it. I got to Starbucks a little after 4 and they were a little busy but there was one table open along the window so I put my computer on the table and went up and stood inline to order my hot chocolate. It really is nice and relaxing to come here and do my work.

I got my drink and sat down and got out my computer. The first thing I did was spend a little time to write my blog from Saturday night at the Escape which was a lot of fun. I spent about an hour doing my blog and e-mails before starting my studding. Now these are all online classes that take about 3 hours each to complete so as it was after 5 it would be after 8 when I finish but it is all about being able to do this as Susan at Starbucks. It still amazes me how far I have come in the last 10 years. Now there were other people here most with computers working or doing school work so I fit right in.

As I worked, I was watching the time and wondering if I would finish by the time, they close at 8:30. I actually finished just before they closed which was good. I left here at 8:30 and made a quick stop to get a burger before heading home for the night. now I did get one quick selfie tonight. A shorter blog tonight but still a fun night.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new.

First Saturday of 2019 at the Escape

Okay first a quick update. Last Sunday I stopped at a nail salon called signature nail my toes were so bad and I just couldn’t take it anymore and yes, I stopped as my male self. I went in and they were busy and I had no appointment. The lady said they could fit me in, in about 20 minutes so I sat down in a pedicure chair and soaked my feet as I waited. Now I really lucked out as a couple women came in after me and they were told they were booked up for the rest of the day so I must have gotten the last opening. Now I had told them I wanted a manicure also so I was really looking forward to it. Finally, the young lady came over to start my pedicure and she seemed nice but when she saw the red on my toes she asked if I wanted color and I said red she smiled and her attitude changed, she almost seemed friendlier. We talked almost the whole time she did my pedicure. Then she did my manicure and she asked if I wanted red on my fingers and I just smiled and said I can get away with it on my toes as no one sees them but just clear on my fingers. She did a wonderful job. I got the deluxe pedicure and just a regular manicure and it was $70 which is kind of what I figured although they do give a 10% discount if you pay cash which I didn’t have. I was treated really well and would recommend them. I was there about 2 hours so it was a little late to try and go out as Susan but my nails look great.

Okay on to today, it is the first Saturday of 2019 and I am going to the Escape tonight. I posted in the group and I got replies back, Nicole, Melissa are going and possible 2 of our new members so I am looking forward to it. I took my time getting ready and I knew what I was going to wear at least till it was time to dress and then I changed my mind, I seem to do that a lot as Susan. I was ready a little before 5 and on my way. I got to the Escape about 5:15 and the parking lot was full so I had to park about a block away. I got inside and they were a little busier than normal for this time but they did have the Seahawk game on, they are going for the wildcard spot in the playoffs. The table I usually get was open so I sat down and got out my computer and then ordered dinner. I was answering an e-mail from Jennifer a girl who reads my blog, she had asked me several questions. I do not mind getting e-mails that ask questions and will do my best to answer them but as with this blog it is my opinion and feelings only. Anyway, I was about ½ way done as I was taking my time as I wanted to answer the questions the best I could when Melissa showed up and shortly after Nicole. We all like to get here early so we can talk before it gets loud later with karaoke. Any way I saved what I had done and put away my computer so we could talk.

It really was good to see them again. Nicole gets to Portland about once a month now and Melissa goes out more on the Wednesday night dinners. Well we sat and talked about a lot of stuff from where we should go for our next dinner, trying to do 1 dinner a month on a Saturday which would take a little more effort, how to get more people active in the group which is a big thing. We have about 225 members and about ½ of them go out which is pretty good but it is on the coordinating of things. We have a handful that set up the dinners or post they will be someplace and what I have found is that unless the girls know for sure someone will be there, they won’t go and I can understand that as it can be intimidating and lonely to be the only one who shows up. What we would like is for more of the group to plan things and be there for others to show up. We are really active, probably one of the most active T-girl groups in the country but even on our Wednesday night dinner we tend to go to a hand full of places and just cycle through them, we do occasionally put a new place in the mix but that takes a little effort as we really need to know a little about it such as reservations, how they can accommodate bugger groups, and of course price as for some that can be a big deal as we are all in different economic ranges. It is nice to do a really nice place once in a while but I really think a dinner where you can eat for $10 to $20 is probably the best for any group of people. We may put it out to the group and see if we can get more people to agree to be in charge of an event, even if we got just 25 people to arrange 1 event a year that would be awesome. We even talked about doing another cruise, Melissa and I are thinking an Alaskan cruise. I have always wanted to go to Alaska plus these tend to be a lower cost which may get more girls to go.

We ate dinner and we were also kind of watching the Seahawk game. Some of our group are huge sports fans, ii can take it or leave it but it is funny as I have watched way more football as Susan then as my male self and if someone had told me 15 years ago, I would be sitting in a bar dressed as Susan watching football, I would have thought they were crazy. Well they lost but it was a close game.

It was about 7:30 when Robyn and Bobbie showed up so we were up to 5 of us now. Of course, I had to get a selfie. Now I like this dress as if I wear my corset tight and my pushup bra, I can get a little cleavage without a lot of work. The 5 of us sat and talked some more it was a really fun night.

It started getting busier which is fun as it is nice to people watch. Nicole wanted some pictures of her so I took some of her and we also got some of us together and of course I got a few of just me. I still don’t like the way I look when I pose like this as I look way to stiff but this one actually was not bad.

It was about 8:30 when Robin one of our newer members showed up. This was her first time out with the group and she had the biggest smile on her face, she actually had this smile the whole night long. Nothing makes you look better then smiling. Now I think she has been out a couple times before but she did really well and it was wonderful to meet her as we have been Facebook friends for a while now. Having friend online is wonderful but when you can actually meet them that is awesome. She reads my blog and have met a lot of girls lately that found me or our group through my blog. Tok think that when I first started it, it was just a way to record my Susan time for myself, never really thought anyone would find it let alone read it.

It was wonderful to sit and talk with her and get to know her, something Susan loves to do. Now as we sat and talked, I noticed a lady at a table across the way looking at me. Now I know I get looks and most of the time I don’t even notice or pay attention but it seemed every time I looked over there, she was looking at me and then would look away. Any way late on she came over and told us how awesome we all were and then told me how pretty I looked which I always love to hear. Now I have gotten compliments on my eye makeup, lipstick, dress and heels but this was the first time I got a compliment on my eyebrows, she thought they were awesome. We talked a little and I thanked her before her and her friend left.

Karaoke started and Melissa and Nicole left so I talked with Robin some more. She wanted to get some pictures so I took some of her and she even wanted a picture with me and you know how I feel about having my picture taken with other people so we got several pictures of us. It really was a wonderful night and I met a new friend and hope she can come out more with the group.

Lauri also showed up around 10 so we actually had 7 of us here tonight although not all at one time. It was good to see Lauri as she is one I can pretty much count on being here every Saturday night although later in the evening. We talked a little which is nice as I love to catch up on what is going on in everyone’s life and of course how their New Years was. Most of us didn’t make it late enough to see the New Year come in

It was almost 11:30 when I paid my bill and called it a night. what a wonderful start to 2019

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what’s new with Susan on my most recent blog.

Last Saturday night of 2018 at the Escape

It is the last Saturday of 2018 and I am going to the Escape tonight and I am looking forward to it. With the year commit to an end and I look back it has been a challenging year. My dad passed away the end of September and this is the first Christmas without him and that was hard. now it wasn’t unexpected but still leaves a hole in your heart and it is always hard during the holidays. It really is hard to believe he has been gone 3 months. That being said I did have a wonderful Christmas with my mom and my brother and his family. I hope all my friends who read this had a Merry Christmas also. Now there was also a lot of good this year also and I have always been the type to focus on the positive, the good that happens as that is what makes life good. Trust me if you can focus on the good in your life instead of the negative life is wonderful.

Some of the highlights this year was going to Diva Las Vegas again, this was my 7th year going and as always it was fun, 9 days living as Susan with my friends and of course my acrylic nails. You can read about it on my blog. I also got to go out with my friends, not as much as I wanted but still enough to value and cherish the time spent with them and I have some really wonderful friends, some are more like family and I love them all. I even made some new friends as we had several girls join our group and come out with us. New Years is fast approaching so it is always a time to look back as well as look forward. I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Years may it be your best yet and please be safe if you go out.

Now back to tonight. I posted in our group I would be at the Escape and I hoped others would show up. Now I took my time getting ready, I really do enjoy the time getting ready and doing my makeup. People ask me why and the best answer I can give is it is like I am stepping outside my male life and becoming Susan, my vacation or escape from my male life and all that goes with it. As I do my makeup, I see the lady I am on the inside come out, it is such a wonderful feeling. I was ready and on my way by 6 and got to the Escape about 6:30, traffic was bad as it was really rainy. Luckily, I got a parking spot right in front of the door. I ordered dinner and sat down at the table and got my computer out.

It wasn’t long and Jan and Lynn showed up. It was great to see them, I kind of thought they would be out tonight as they had asked online if there were any plans for tonight. My food showed up so I closed my computer down to eat and talk with Jan & Lynn. As we talked there was a man and woman at the bar who waved to us and then came over. Turns out the man was Audri one of our newer members to the group. Audri and her girlfriend, Kelli came down to check out the Escape and meet us. They were really nice and we invited them to join us. It was so nice to meet them and get to know them, as I said earlier, I have met some really wonderful people this year. Audri’s girlfriend Kelli is really supportive of her and encouraging her to be herself and go out which is really wonderful.

We talked for a while which was nice, I told them about Diva Las Vegas and they both said they were interested and wanted to go this year. By the way Diva Las Vegas this year is March 31st to April 5th if anyone is interested in going. Cassandra and I are planning on going although my vacation hasn’t been approved yet but I am hoping to find out this week. It really was turning out to be a wonderful night.

Karren also showed, it was wonderful to see her again. We all sat and talked and had a wonderful girl’s night out. As the night went on it got busier as it always does and by the time Karaoke started. Now Audri & Kelli had to leave as they had other plans tonight but I hope they come out more. Karren stayed a little longer which was nice, it is hard to talk once Karaoke starts as it get louder but still fun. We talked little we are hoping to do a dinner on one Saturday night a month, the only issue is we may have to have Reservations and that might be hard as it takes more planning a head of time. Karren left and it was just Lynn, Jan and me for a while.

A little before 10 Lauri showed up so we had a good group of girls out tonight. We talked a little and listened to people sing. It was a wonderful night. It was about 11 when I called it a night. I wished everyone a Happy New Year as I won’t be out as I have to work early on New Years Day. I won’t be out till Next weekend so I had to make the most of tonight. Have a wonderful, safe, and Happy New Years. Also had to get a selfie tonight.

Thanks for reading my blog and be sure and see what is new on my most recent blog.

Saturday night at the Escape, made some new friends

It is Saturday and I am going to the Escape tonight and I am looking forward to it. We are one week away from Christmas, Merry Christmas everyone. Now this also means I will have family in town next weekend so there will be no Susan next weekend so I have to make this weekend count. Now with that being said I wanted to get to the Escape by 5 so I could eat and play on my computer a little till others show up, I am hoping others will show up as I posted too our group but haven’t seen a reply. Either way it will still be a fun night. I am planning on staying till 10 maybe a little later but I have to get up early Sunday morning 6am so that is why I wanted to get there early. It was a little after 3 when I started getting ready, I really love the time I take to be Susan. I was on my way by 5 just a little later than I had hoped.

I got to the Escape and was able to park right in front. I went in and got my table and then went and ordered dinner. A couple guys at the bar asked how I was ding and if the group would be here tonight and I was hoping some would. I talked with them a little but felt bad as they knew my name but I couldn’t remember theirs. I went and sat down and played on my computer and ate my hamburger when it came. Of course, I had to get a selfie tonight, I am trying to get a picture each time I go out which I kind of got away from.

It was about 6:30 when Michelle showed up, it was good to see her so there was at least 2 of us for the night. I put my computer away and the two of us sat and talked. Now they had the music turned up tonight so it was a little loud even before Karaoke started so a little hard talking. Now we did talk a lot about Diva Las Vegas this year. Cassandra and I are planning on going, Julie is a maybe and Michelle is really thinking about it and we are still 3 months away. Diva Las Vegas is March 31st to April 5th 2019. Check out their web page Diva Las Vegas and think about going.

A little after 7 Sasha showed up also, she had seen my post to the group and showed up so there were now 3 of us. Now we had a nice time talking and listening to the loud music. Now a little after 8 several girls came in that I didn’t know but they knew me from my blog. They came over and introduced themselves to us, there names were Betty who is a new member of our group, Shay and her wife Raina and Sindee and her girlfriend Dee. We talked a little and then they went into the other room where it was quieter to talk. Now Michelle, Sasha and I talked a little more. Well about 8:30 I walked over to the other room to make a phone call and then after I got talking to them. It was great to get to know them. The other room was getting busy and Karaoke was starting so Michelle called it a night so I got my stuff and Sasha and I came into the other room and joined them.

Now Betty being a member of our group had seen my post and knew I would be here. She met the other girls in a chat room. They don’t live in Portland one lives on the coast and the other in the gorge. They had been talking and agreed to meet in Portland tonight. The ones from out of town where staying just down the street. There was also another girl that was going to join them tonight. Now they were awesome people. Dee was taking selfies so I showed her my tip of setting your self timer so you can push the button and then hold it out and it has time to focus and take the picture. Of course, I got the bonus of getting a picture with her and she said I could post it. She also had red lipstick and we ended up talking about our lipsticks. Mine is Maybelline superstay matte lip ink which is awesome by the way. It doesn’t wear off, I have to use a cotton ball and baby oil to get it off. Dee was wearing loreal infallible matte lipstick . it was so much fun talking lipsticks with her

Now as we talked, I found out this was only Sindee’s second time going out and Shay has only been out a few times and also Betty’s first time out. How awesome is that, I remember my first time out and how scary it was. It would have been so much easier if I had known others would be there. Now of course Betty is a member of our group but I encouraged Sindee and Shay to join our group and I gave them my Susan business card with my e-mail address on it so they could e-mail me if they were in Portland again.

Now around 10 Lauri showed up so it turned out to be a good turnout tonight. It was so much fun getting to know them and talking to them, something as Susan I enjoy. Getting to know new people. Now Sindee came out to Dee just a few months after they started dating and Dee loves it, Shay came out to Raina just a while ago, they have been married for several years but she is also very supportive. Their problem is they both live in small towns and I can understand how hard that would be. For many years I would not go out any place near where I live. I would always drive at least 15 to 20 miles just to be safe. It was such a fun night. now later on Sindee agreed to sing Karaoke if Dee would so they both put their names on the list.

When it was Dee’s turn to sing, we all moved over to the other side where the Karaoke was and Dee went up to sing. She did awesome and had so much fun up there, right after her Sindee went up and sang and also did awesome. Now we were having so much fun and I so enjoyed getting to know them and I knew it was getting late. I went up and paid my bill and one of the men at the bar noticed and said to me, I don’t think I have seen you here this late before and he was right it is very rare. I got back to the table and looked at my phone and it was after 2am. Now Sindee wanted a picture with her, Dee and me so we took one and of course I took one also and asked if they minded if I post and they both said yes. I still like to get permission as I know some don’t like to have their pictures posted. One reason I never ask to get pictures with other girls if they are not taking pictures themselves. This is the 3 of us. What a cute group of ladies. It was 2:30 am when I left and headed for home. It was a wonderful knight and I really hope Sindee and Shay join our group rosecityt-girls.com. now being this late I will regret it in the morning when my alarm goes of but tonight it was so worth it.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Songs and Larry’s with friends

It is Wednesday and our group is doing a Wednesday night dinner at Who Song’s and Larry’s on the Columbia river. Now our group has gone here many times over the years I have even gone here a couple times, once to meet Peggy for dinner and once to meet Peggy and Cassandra. It is also one of the first restaurants we went to as a group and our first Christmas dinner, we went here December 23rd 2009. I was looking forward to it. I am not sure how many we will have tonight as the only ones who have replied they are going is Julie, Barb, Melissa, Lauri and myself. Now dinner is at 7 but I want to get there a little early as I love their bean dip and am going to sit at the bar till my friends arrive. Some of them will have traffic and is hard to judge when they will arrive.

I took my time getting ready as I wanted to look my best plus I also love the time and experience of doing my makeup and transforming myself into Susan. It really is wonderful getting to be a female. I was ready by 6 and on my way. I got there about 6:15 and the parking lot was full with several cars circling looking for a spot. Now luck was with as a car pulled right out in front of me. I went in and there were people waiting. I got to the front and the lady asked if I had reservations which we didn’t, we have never done reservation. The lady said they were all booked up but had one table available upstairs if we wanted and asked how many we had. I said 6 to 8 and she said it was a round table that sat 6 but we could squeeze a few more chairs around it if needed so I told her we would take it at 7, she said she would get it ready and I went to the bar to wait. Seems everyone wanted to have dinner here tonight as they can watch the Christmas ships on the Columbia river. We never thought of that.

I ordered their 50/50 dip and my drink, a Sprite and waited for my friends. Now I did take a quick selfie at the bar. Now the dip I like is a bean dip that has cheese on it and before I always got here after Cassandra and she had already ordered it so I just ordered what she had. The 50/50 dip was different, but really good. Melissa was the first to show up, followed by Lauri and Barb. We sat at the bar for a little bit before going to see if our Table was ready.

Julie came in as we were waiting to be shown to our table upstairs. Now in all the times we have been here I had seen the stairs but never saw anyone going up them, turns out the upstairs is just as big as the downstairs and it was also full. We sat down and talked as we waited in case others showed up. Kris had posted late she would be there. It was a little after 7 when she got there so we had 6 for tonight’s dinner. Our waiter came over to see how we were doing and take our orders, he was awesome. Really every time we have come here, we have been treated wonderful. We all ordered, I did an appetizer as I kind of filled up on the chips and dip, I really could make a meal out of that.

Now we sat and talked which is always fun. It still amazes me as Susan I love to sit and talk with friends and people, as my male self not really big on just sitting and talking. Now there were people ever place as the restaurant was full and no one seemed to pay us any attention to us. It was so good to see Julie again and talk with her. She travels a lot this time of year so any time we can get together is special. It was a wonderful girl’s night out.

Our food showed up and we had a wonderful dinner, the food here is really good. Now as we ate the Christmas ships went by and we could kind of see them from our table. Most of the people got up from their tables and went to the windows to watch them. They are really cool but I have seen them before and we didn’t want our food to get cold. If you do want to see them this is a good place to go for dinner, just make reservations.

Now after dinner we sat and talked some more, it was so wonderful to spend the evening with my friends. 10 years ago, I would have never dreamed it possible to have such wonderful friends as Susan and be able to go out and have dinner with them, life really is wonderful for me. Now of course I had to get a picture with Julie, we talked a little about Diva Las Vegas, Cassandra and I are planning on going and I am hoping Julie will also go. Cassandra and I are talking about going the Wednesday before and leaving the last day which is a Friday, that way we still get 9 nights there but only pay for 1 weekend as they are the nights that are the most expensive. It was about 9:30 when we called it a night. Now I am looking forward to Saturday night as I will get to go out again.

Some Sunday Susan time at Starbucks to study.

It is Sunday and I have been going to Starbucks the last several weeks for some Susan time which I enjoy and look forward to but I also have stuff to do. I am taking another class and have some studding to do, actually about 40 hours online to get ready for the class. Luckily as it is online it will be Susan who does that part so I can combine the two sides of my life again at Starbucks. I got all ready and was on my way. I got to Starbucks a little earlier about 3:45. I went in and set up my computer and then went and ordered my Hot Chocolate.

Now the young man at the counter who took my order has waited on me before and today he told me how nice my hair looked, now I have gotten compliments on my makeup, nails, outfits and general looks but this is the first time on my hair. It did make me feel wonderful. I got my drink and sat down and the first thing was to write my blog from Saturday night at the Escape which was a lot of fun. I spent about 4 minutes to an hour working on this before I started my course.

Now there were others here on computers and I often wonder what they are doing. I am sure some are working and some doing school work and some just playing around online. It was a little before 5 when I logged onto my course and started, it is a combination of video lectures and power points presentations. Of course, this means wearing earbuds as I didn’t want to have the volume on inside Starbucks. I just had to get a quick selfie studding with my earbuds in. Now I am not big on Studding and I can get sidetracked really easy which is one reason I didn’t want to do this at home where it would be easy to get distracted. Here at Starbucks it is easier to focus.

I studied till about 6:30 and then went up and got another hot chocolate. The same young man was at the counter to take my order and asked me what I was doing. I told him some studding for a class which was true. He then told me he was taking classes at college and asked what I was taking. I just told him an online business class which was only partially true, it is a mostly an online class but not business but telling him what the class was I felt would give to much personal information. We talked for a little bit before I went back to my studding. It took me till about 8:15 to finish what I needed to do tonight, for a while I didn’t think I would get through it by 8:30 when they close. I packed up my stuff and called it a night. Now as I was leaving one of the girls behind the counter called out and wished me a good night by name. I guess they are getting to know me here also like the Starbucks by my house.

I did make a quick stop at Burger Kings Drive through as I was a little hungry and went home and ate before getting ready for bed. It was a good night out and I am looking forward to it again.

Thanks for reading and be sure and keep up with what’s new in my life on my most recent blog.
