My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday night out at the Escape

Susan Miller saturday nght out 1-30-2016 (2)Well another Saturday night and I am going out as I am really looking forward to seeing my friends. We herd this week that our law suit against the P-Club and Chris Penner is over, the court upheld the judgment against him and he has no more options for appealing this. It will be a fun and interesting evening.

I started getting ready about 5 which was a little later then I paned but was busy all day long. on the bright side I new what I was going to wear and just how I wanted to do my makeup. I wanted to try something new as I have been watchingSusan Miller saturday nght out 1-30-2016 (3) some online videos where woman use two different shades of foundation to contour and highlight their face. Now I did not go as far as they did but I did use a really light shade and a really dark shade in areas and then blended them and I think it turned out really well. there are many videos on this if you want more information. I actually think it turned out really well especially for a first try.

Susan Miller saturday nght out 1-30-2016 (1)I was ready to leave by 6 so it really didn’t take any longer to do this. I got to the Escape at 6:30 and went in. Cassandra was already there so we got a chance to talk about the court order and what it means now. Our attorney wants to get together with all of us and let us know what comes next, Now we did get a huge judgment against Chris Penner which really surprised us all and we really don’t think we will get anything but I am sure the state and especially our attorney will do what they can to recover the money as our attorney who was awesome and did a wonderful job did it all with no fees to us she gets nothing unless they recover money. now for me what is even more important than the money is the fact that it is now case law in Oregon that you can not discriminate against transgender or treat them any different the any other female and as they say on TV that is priceless. I am really looking forward to meeting with her one to thank her and also get more information.

Well as I had on a new dress I had to have Cassandra take a picture as ISusan Miller saturday nght out 1-30-2016 (7) tried a couple at home on timer but I wanted to make sure I had a good one also. Wow I really need to work on my pose as I really look stiff. well something for Susan to work on. Laura M and Dee showed up along with Cristine, Debbie and a few others so we had a good turnout tonight.

Now tonight I did plat some pool, Cassandra and I were Susan Miller saturday nght out 1-30-2016 (5)partners and played a few other teams and won. I actually made the winning shot on 3 of the games even though Cassandra made most of the shots. One team was was a male and female couple or at least I thought they were a couple at the start. Turns out they were friends and both thought I was beautiful. As a matter of fact the female asked is she could take me out for dinner, as a matter of fact she asked me several times and said she would give me her number which she didn’t but it still made me feel awesome. I think this is really the first time I have been asked out for a date by a woman and it was a great feeling.

Now she is a lesbian and that is fine but I am not sure she understands I am really a male who just likes to be Susan part time. I am not going to Transition and although I can look female I am still male. Still I found myself really thinking about accepting the dinner invitation but didn’t as it would be a wonderful experience. It is amazing how wonderful this makes you feel. Now her male friend I think also like me and again don’tSusan Miller saturday nght out 1-30-2016 (6) get me wrong it does feel great to have people like you, think your special, pretty, beautiful but I am not at all interested in men in that way. Any way he did talk me into singing Karaoke with him. we sang 3 dog nights song “Never been to Spain” Luckily he sang really loud and I of course sang soft so it worked out good. Right now I wont sing alone but maybe someday I will but I will sing with others.

It was a fun night and I had a wonderful time out and I did spend some time on my computer chatting with Melissa one of my pal talk friends. She is really nice, I really have made some wonderful friends as Susan. Susan really does have a wonderful life. I get to be who I am and go out and that is so important. I have a vacating coming up as I have a couple weeks I have to use and as I can’t go to Diva Las Vegas this year I am thinking about things I want to do and right now I am thinking of doing them as Susan, maybe go to the beach as I have wanted to go there and it has been years and of course there will be some shopping. It will be fun.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

A wonderful week and now it is time for a Friday night out.

Well it is Friday and it has been a wonderful week and I say that because we herd from our Attorney on Wednesday and the issue we had with the P-club and it owner Chris Penner is over and final, The court upheld the order in our favor.

Greetings, all!  It’s been awhile since we have been in touch, but the time has definitely come to celebrate:  BOLI’s order is finally final!  As you know, Penner appealed the Order to the Court of Appeals and argument took place last year in Madras.  The Court of Appeals upheld the Order and Penner filed a motion to reconsider.  The Court again upheld the Order.  No further appeal is available, so it’s done!

There are no more appeals available to him and the order stands, we won. Now we can put this behind us and move on knowing that the State law does in fact give protection to those who are Transgender. I really wanted to go out and celebrate on Wednesday but just could work it out so tonight, Friday night I will be out and see some of my friends.

I started getting ready at 5 and was already by 6 and on my way to Sweethome. I got there and Chris was there playing pool and also Samantha, She was in town again for the day and joined us tonight. It was good to see here again. She has a 2 hour drive to get here so she doesn’t get out as often. Well I ordered dinner and and talked a little with Samantha and a lady at the next table named Lo. I really like meeting new people.

It wasn’t long and Sara showed up, she is a member from our group that lives in California and only gets to Portland on rare occasions. I think this might have been the first time I have met her though. She is really nice and I enjoyed talking with her. She is in town for the weekend so I am sure she will go out with us tomorrow night to the Escape. Roxy also showed up so we had 5 of us tonight.

It was a fun night as I also got to see some of my other friends I have made here, Mareinna, Dawni, and Angie. This really is a nice friendly bar and the owner Paul was so nice and invited our group to come here after he herd about the P-club telling us not to come back and that was really nice and something we needed at that time.

It was pretty busy here tonight as the other group had a member with a birthday seems January is a good month for Birthday if course since I had my birthday last weekend I have to support January for birthdays. Karaoke started a little late tonight but there were a lot of people wanting to sing. ne of the ladies sang the song To Sir with Love which I haven’t herd in a long time but I really like it and she did a great job.

It was a fun night and again I was the last to leave as I stayed and listened to Dawni and Mareinna sing. It was about 11:30 when I left. As  was leaving I herd someone call my name so I stopped to see who it was Amanda. she was just getting here. She is another one of my friends I have made here. We stood in the parking lot for a while talking. It was a good night and I am hoping to go out tomorrow night to the Escape as there will be more f our group there and I am sure we will be talking about the courts order and what happens now, we all feel like celebrating as it has been a long journey. It is hard to believe that this all started back in June of 2012 that we were excluded from the P-club, it has been 3 1/2 years. it doesn’t seem like it has been that long. We hope to meet with our attorney in the next couple weeks and find out what this all means and where we go from here. I will of course keep you all up to date on what happens next

Have a great day and thanks for reading.

Saturday night at the escape

Well it is Saturday evening and I am going to the Escape for the night, I was actually going early as Peggy was also going to be out tonight and we were going to get together. Now I was really looking forward to this even after my interesting morning. I was meeting Peggy at 6 so I started getting ready about 3:45. Now I was going to wear my black and white dress, I have only worn it Susan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (1)once before but it really is cute and I really like the length as it comes just below my knees.

I started with my shower and then started my makeup taking my time to make sure it was as perfect as I could get it. It is funny as I do really care how I look. Now I am not saying in my male life I don’t care how  loo I just think as Susan, being a lady I want to make sure I am the best I can be.

With my makeup all done I started getting dressed. now this dressSusan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (2) is really pretty but a little tight so that means I had to put on my waist cincher and some hip pad which are things I don’t do unless I am wearing something like this. I took extra care to make sure the hip pads were straight and looked right. now this dress also has a key hole back narrow shoulder straps which I learned last time I have to tie by bra straps together so they don’t show which takes a little work, it is hard being a lady. I got this all done and put on my ring and bracelet and of course perfume something I forgot last night when I went out.

Now it was time to get the dress on which has a side zipper and then a zipper on the back above the key hole. I unzipped the back part far enough to get my head through it as I can’t seem to get the zipper started behind my back. Finally I had my dress on and then my 4” Susan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (3)heels and I was ready. I got my computer and went out to my car in the garage and was ready to leave. Now the funny part as I was so careful to make sure my makeup was perfect, dress was perfect I new I was ready as I looked in the mirror for one last look at my makeup and you will never guess what I noticed. I had forgot my hair, yes I had my short short male hair so out of the car and back upstairs to select my hair. So glad I looked in the mirror. Now I did take a few selfie’s tonight.

I was on my way by 5:10 and got to the Escape about 5:30 as there was no traffic. I got out my computer and waited for Peggy to arrive and I only had to wait about 15 minutes as she arrived about 5:45. Turns out this is Peggy’s first time to the Escape. It was good to see Peggy again, Peggy is Cassandra’s wife and is totally supportive of Cassandra and all us T-girls and I am thankful to have her as a friend. PeggySusan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (4) and I had a wonderful time just sitting there and talking like to girlfriends, this is the normalcy that I so love when I am Susan. It is times like this when I can forget about being male or female and just be me and that is a wonderful feeling. I have so many wonderful friends in the T-Girl communities and I love them all but there is something about being able to spend time with people who are not transgender and being accepted as a person.

Susan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (6)Cassandra and Cristine showed up about 6:40, some of the girls had gone to a clothing exchange today the Laura M. and her friend Jenny put on which was awesome of them to do that. I wish I could have gone but I had things I had to do during the day.

Peggy and I ordered dinner as Cassandra and Cristine ate at the clothing exchange. A little after 7 Laura M, her Daughter and her friend Jenny showed up along with Laura H., Dee and Teresa showed up so we had 9 of us here tonight. It is so cool that Laura’s daughter comes out with her.

It was good to see Teresa again she also doesn’t get out with the group as much an more. Our group really is a wonderful group as we have members from the full range from wives andSusan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (7) girlfriends, to friends and those who are supportive, to those who only dress at home on private to those who have or are in the process of transitioning and that gives our group a distinct perspective. It also gives one a chance to understand all aspects of the gender community a little better.

Now it was a slow night here tonight so when Karaoke started Laura M and Laura H were the first 2 to sing and also the 4th and 5th to sing. They actually sand several times each while Cassandra played pool with some of the Susan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (8)other costumers, there were 2 couples sitting by the window that had been playing pool since before I showed up. they seemed fine with us and it turns out they were visiting Portland and had come here for the evening to play pool. Cassandra won several games against both of the men and one of the ladies although the lady almost won. I think they had a good time even though they lost to Cassandra.

It was a little before 10 when Peggy and Teresa left. It was sad to see them leave. I really enjoyed visiting with them and I look forward to seeing them again and maybe getting together with Peggy again for dinner.

I stayed a little longer and listened to some more Karaoke and watchedSusan in her cute dress Jan 23 2016 (9) Cassandra win a couple more games of pool, she was really having a good night for pool. It was about 10:30 when I paid my bill and called it a night. I said my goodbyes and left. Cassandra was also leaving and I had some stuff for her in my trunk so we walked out together and move the stuff from my car to hers and then I was on my way home. It was a wonderful night out with my friend well they are more like my family.

Now tomorrow some of the girls are going to watch the football playoffs at 52nd street sports bar and although I am not a big football fan it would be fun to go but I can’t as my other side, my male self will be spending it with my family as they will be in town for the day for my birthday. So I will be looking forward to next weekend and my time as Susan.

Thanks for reading

Interesting quick Saturday morning post

Okay this is not my normal post as most of my posts are about by time going out as Susan but I just had to share this. Now normally when I gat home on Friday nights I am tired and I just want to go to bed and as such I don’t remove my makeup. I know this is bad as everything I have read says you shouldn’t sleep in your makeup as it is not good for your skin but I figure 1 night a week is okay plus I wash my sheets on Saturday so I can clean any makeup off of them. Now the other reason I do this is on Saturday mornings I get up and write my blog about Friday night and although I really don’t dress just to stay at home I enjoy the time writing my blog as Susan so on Saturday morning I get up and touch up my makeup and I have a really casual red dress that I have used for when I am just at home that I put on and then my dark hair and I go downstairs.

I make some oatmeal for breakfast and eat as I do my blog. Now one reason I don’t dress and stay home as I really want to go out when I am Susan but the other reason is I am afraid someone especially family will stop by. Now my parents have a code to get into my garage as I am storing some of their stuff in my garage and of course once in the garage they could come into the house. Any way because of this I sit in the front living room facing the front window with the curtains open about half way so I can see if a car pulls into my drive plus I can also hear the garage door open in this room and this has happened on a few occasions and I had  to run upstairs and get in the shower. Now I have had a few close calls over the last few years. The problem is the unexpected.

Well I was sitting their this morning eating breakfast and writing my blog when I saw something move outside my front window, someone had walked up my front sidewalk, there was no car in the drive but I heard a knock on the front door. Now of course I had that moment of panic as I wondered who it was. I figured it was someone walking around selling something or maybe leaving political flyers. I thought about getting up and going into the kitchen incase they so they wouldn’t see me if they looked through the window.

Before I could get up and moved I saw someone looking through the window and I had that panic again as it was the neighbor lady, not one of the ones who knows about Susan at least not that I know. Now I am on the far side of the room and of course it is not real bright inside so I am sure she didn’t get a really good look at me but she waved at me and went back and knocked on the door again. Now I was caught between a rock and a hard space as she has seen someone and new there was someone home. I thought for a brief second and then got up and walked to the front door. I took a deep breath  and while standing kind of behind the door I opened it a couple inches, enough to talk with her. now she really couldn’t see me except for just a little bit of my face.

She asked if I was home using my male name. I as calmly as I could told her no he wasn’t. She asked when I would be home as she had no hot water and didn’t know what to do and was hoping I could come look at it. I told her he ( I ) should be home in about an hour and would let him know. she thanked me and left. I don’t know if she knew or recognized me. I went back and finished my breakfast thinking about what had just happened.

After breakfast I went and took a shower being sure to get all traces of makeup off. now back to my male self I had to work up the courage to go next door to my neighbors and see if I could help her. Now I think I more more worried and scared going over there lie this wondering if she new it was me or if she would say something about it or ask me who the woman was that answered my door.

I walked next door and checked things out, looks like she had just tripped a circuit breaker so I reset it. She thanked me for my help and we talked for a few minutes before I left and went back to my house. She never said anything about the person who answered the door or gave any indications she suspected anything.

After wards I wondered what she would have thought if I had just opened the door to her and let her meet me. Two of my neighbors do know about Susan and they seem fine with my this but they have never met Susan face to face. Maybe some day.

Well that was how my Saturday morning started off and it has made an interesting blog. Thanks for reading

Friday and time for Susan to go out.

Well it has been a busy week and unlike last week where I got out 4 times this week I was busy every day so I am really looking forward to tonight. I think how far I have come as Susan and accepting this part of who I am. I am quite comfortable expressing this side of myself and Susan has an impact on pretty much every part of my life. It is fun to look back on my blogs and see how I have grown which is why I started my blog and I am fast approaching 800 blog posts. I also want to thank all of you who have read my blog and followed my journey. I never really thought people would even find my blog let alone read it.

I started getting ready by 4, even after all this time I still look forward and enjoy my time becoming Susan. I really think the best thing you can do for yourself and to stay healthy is to have something in your life you love to do and can look forward to and for me that is Susan. I would encourage everyone to find that one thing in your life you love and embrace it. I took my time getting ready and enjoyed it. I was ready by 6 and on my way.

I got to Sweethome by 6:20 and went in. Chris was there playing pool. I got out my computer and caught up n some e-mails. Robyn showed up so we had 3 of us and it wasn’t even 7 yet. We talked for a bit and then ordered dinner, the special tonight was Chicken Cordon Bleu and it was awesome. they really do have good food here. this really is a nice friendly neighbor hood bar.

Jan and Lynn also made it tonight and it was nice to see them again. Roxy and Michelle also showed up s we had a good group tonight. Michelle brought me a donut that was decorated to look like a swan, it was really cute and as I had already had cheesecake for desert I decided to save it and take it home.

Now there are also all the friends I have made here and I look forward to seeing them also. some of my friends here are Heather, Dawni, Mareinna, Jessica, Michele, Amanda, Angie, Rachel and her wife Heather, Kelsie and more and they were all here tonight. it really is amazing the people I have met and got to know as Susan while being out as I still remember when I just dressed at home.

Karaoke started and that is always fun as I love watching them sing and on the songs I like I do sing along at the table. it was a fun night. As it got later some of our group left, Chris had a pool tournament early Saturday so he didn’t stay as late as he normally does. by 11 it was just Jan, Lynn and I left from our group.

It was just a little later when Jan and I paid our bills as we were getting ready to leave, Jan and Lynn left but I stayed just a little longer as I liked a couple of the songs they were singing. one was My girl and the guy who sang it did really well and had the whole bar singing with him and several or them dancing. it was a really fun night. It was about 11:40 when I left but it was a good night.

Thanks again to all you who have found and read my blog and have followed me on my journey.

Saturday night at the Escape, my 4th night out this week.

Well it is Saturday and even though I have had a chance to be Susan 3 times this week I am going to go to the Escape tonight to hang out with my friends. I started getting ready at 4 so I could get there a little early as I do have a few things I need to do on my computer.  A nice shower and time to do my makeup. now I start with my foundation and wouldn’t you know it none comes out. Now I know I have another bottle but I can’t find it. Seems I didn’t put everything back after I hid everything during the Holidays when I had family over, I spent about 15 minutes looking for it before I resorted to using Q-tips to get as much foundation out of the bottle as I could and was able to get enough to do the job. Now don’t get me wrong still enjoyed getting ready just a little bump in the road which I am sure other woman have had happen.

I got all done with my makeup and was deciding what to wear tonight. Now if it is busy at the escape I will have to park across the street and walk so I decided I would wear my cream sweater and my 3” cream wedges as they are really comfortable. I started getting dressed and went to put my panty hose on and they had a run so I went to get another pair only to find out I had no more except for a pair of jet black ones. Well I knew the shoes would not look right and wasn’t sure about the dress so back to the closet. I looked over my dresses and I have a really cute dark blue dress I love but it is a little short but with jet black panty hose it would be fine as they almost looked like tights. I put them on only to find they are not the same size as I wear, they were really tight but I got them on and chose my 4” spiked heels as they look really good with this outfit. I was ready to go by 5:45 so I was going to be able to get there by 6.

I got my stuff and got in the car, as I sat down I noticed how short the dress was. Seems they always ride up when you sit but the black panty hose worked. Now with these heels I was hoping getting to the Escape early would let me park right in front. I got there just a little after 6 and there were several parking spots right in front of the door so I was happy. I got my stuff and started to get get out of the car and as I swung my legs out I felt my panty hose go and anyone who has worn panty hose knows if you can feel it then it is more than a run. I turned on the light in my car and I guess they were to tight as they were shredded on the right leg. I couldn’t wear them as they really looked bad so back into the car and I removed them so now I have a short dress that I will have to be careful with all night. I guess you have to have one of those nights where everything goes wrong.

I got inside and got a table and ordered dinner and got out my computer as I waited for others to show up. Laura H. and her friend Lisa were the first to arrive. Debbie and Laura M arrived a little later. We also had a few more girls show up so we had 9 of us all together. We had a nice time talking and watching football. We watched the last quarter of the Green Bay Packer and the Arizona Cardinal’s game. It was a really good ending, I am not a big football fan but when you get t the playoffs it is a lot more fun. Arizona won and I think from the reaction in the bar that was who most people were going for.

After the game they started Karaoke which is always fun, I don’t sing but it is fun to listen as some of them are really good. It was a good night out as always and after a rocky start it all went well other them being careful when I sat or stood with my short dress. It was about 11:45 when I went and paid my bill, said my goodbyes and left.

Friday night, could be a quiet night

Well it has been a good week for Susan as I got out long enough for a manicure and pedicure on Tuesday and then again on Thursday for a short visit with my friend in the hospital and now Friday is here and I am going out again. now I wasn’t sure how many or even if any of our group would be out as I know Chris wont be at Sweethome tonight but I decided I would go anyway and at least have dinner. I really love my Susan time.

Okay I am going to take a little side track here as I have been getting a few people telling me I should transition and that I know I want to so I thought I would take up this topic and I want you all to know I did do a lot of thinking about this before I decided to put it in my blog. No I do not want to transition, I do not feel my body is wrong and I do not want to be a woman physically. now that being said do I think or wish I had breast, yes when I am Susan I would love to have real breast, wider hips, narrower waist, and while we are at it 6 inches shorter and smaller feet but this is just when I am Susan. when I am my male self I don’t wish for these things. I like my male side also and although the Susan side is stronger I need both so if I did transition full time I would still be a crossdresser as I would at times be crossdressing back to my male self which is strange to if you think about it.

Now yes if men could have long pretty nails I would do this all the time as I love them and yes if men could wear makeup I would probably do that all the time, if men could wear dresses and heels I would do that too but not all the time. there are parts of being Susan and being feminine I do wish I could do in my male life. now don’t get me wrong I love going out with my friends as they are a big part of my life and who I am, they have helped me become who I am but what I really miss is the for lack of a better word smaller things in life, the more routine normal day to day things. I think that is why I enjoyed spending time with my friend and his wife at the hospital. Why I love going and getting my nails done. the things woman do on their own or in small groups of one or two. To just be out as myself doing day to day things and being accepted. I have gone to many nails salons over the years and always been treated wonderful, Dream nails where I go now is awesome and they always treat me like I belong there. I do get a few looks from some of the other woman there but I have never had a bad experience or anyone treat me bad. I think it is more curiosity as they may never have seen someone like me but on occasion when I am sitting next to someone in the chair they will talk to me and that makes it all the better. I know they are not fooled by how I am dressed but when they can treat me like they would treat any other lady there then it is wonderful. s yes I would like to see Susan be an even bigger part of my life.

Now this year I can’t make it to Diva Las Vegas which is really sad as I do look forward to spending 12 days living full time as Susan and getting acrylic nails. On the other had this gives me a little over 2 weeks of vacation  have to use in the next 3 months and as I was saving most of it for Diva Las Vegas now I am thinking what else can I do. I will take a week in February and a week in March and I am thinking maybe of getting acrylic nails for one of those weeks and even if I don’t do that I will defiantly go to the nail salon and get them painted a pretty color and I will probably get the gel polish so they stay pretty the whole week, not sure if I will go any place though but it will be nice to have pretty nails.

Well back to tonight, I got all ready and was on my way by 6, I got there by 6:30 and parked and went in. it was a little busy but no one from my group was here. I sat at a table and got out my computer, went up to the bar and ordered dinner and caught up on some work while I waited. I was still not sure if any others would show up but I figured being Susan here and having dinner was better then being at home. Besides Sweethome has really good food. Now although no one from our group was here the other group that comes here was and I know several of them and a few of them came over and talked with me, Heather who is so sweet and awesome. she knows everyone and always has a hug for you and I think we all need more hugs. She came over and we talked for a while, Also Dawni and Mareinna (she was in boy mode tonight) came over and gave me hugs also. I really think this is the best part of being Susan, being feminine is that it is normal for woman to greet each other with a hug. You know this may be why woman live longer then men.

Well I decided to stay and see if any others showed up later so I finished up my work on my computer and then went into one of the chat rooms and chatted with a couple friends for a while. It was about 8:45 when I saw Robyn at the bar, she had just showed up. We sat together and she said Diane and a friend of hers name Jill were also going to be here tonight so that was nice. They both showed up around 10. I know Diane and it was good to see her again but I have never met Jill before and I really like meeting new people. Turns out Jill used to be in a band Called The Nasty Habits which is a Transgender rock band. She lives here by Portland now and she is in a new band also. how cool is that. It was nice to talk with her and get to know a little about her. It really was a fun night and it was 11:45 when I called it an evening.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day and remember be who you are and don’t let others influence you into being someone you are not.

Thursday night out

Well Thursday night Peggy and I planned on getting together and visiting our friend and her wife in the hospital. We were going to meet at the hospital at 6  as I new where her room was. now I got home and decided to go a little early, Thanks to Google I found out there is a Starbucks right across the street from the hospital. now with normal traffic I can make it there in 30 minutes but this would be during rush hour so I figured I could go early and spend a little time at Starbucks. I started getting ready as soon as I got home and I was ready a little after 4 and on my way. Traffic was really bad and it actually took me almost an hour in a half to get there so it was about 5:30 when I got to Starbucks.

I parked and went in and got a drink and sat down and caught up on some work on my computer. this is actually a really small Starbuck’s probably the smallest I have been in. I spent about 30 minutes here before leaving and driving across the street to the hospital.

Peggy also got caught in the traffic so it was about 6:20 when she got there, we met in the parking lot and then went in together. We found her room and it was good to see her again, she looks a lot better. Her wife has been here at the hospital non stop since she came in. We had a really nice visit with them. It really is fun do be out as Susan and do things like this, it is such a normal thing to do.

We spent about 2 hours here chatting with them so it was about 8:15 when we left. It was good to see them again and also spend some time with Peggy.

Tuesday night manicure pedicure.

I got home today and had a couple hours free today and I thought why not go get a manicure & pedicure. It has been a while I was thinking I last went in November but looking at my blog it was October 13 when I last went and got my nails done. Now I would love to go ever 4 weeks but I can’t swing that so I was hoping every 6 weeks. it is a little expensive for what I can really get as I can’t go all girly but I still enjoy it so it is worth it for me. This really is one of the fun things girls get to do.

Any way I got home at 3 and called Dream Nails to see if I could get an appointment Anna my nail tech said she could get me in at 4,s o I was off to get ready a quick shower and shave and then I started my makeup. Now I was ready to leave by 3:45 so I had a little time to kill as I am less than 5 minutes away. I was on my way and got there just before 4 and went in.

Now I figured a Tuesday afternoon and a cold and rainy day, yes it was really raining hard would be a good day to go, turns out a lot of ladies thought the same thing as they were really busy. All 4 nail tech were busy and there were 3 ladies waiting, glad I called and made an appointment. I picked out my color a really bright pink and sat down. Anna was still finishing up on a young lady so when she went to wash her hands she got me going in the pedicure spa. now I sat there soaking my feet in a massaging chair while she finished up with the other lady. it was about 4:15 when she got over to me but I didn’t mind waiting as this really is a wonderfully feminine experience. She started my pedicure and it felt so wonderful, if you have never had a pedicure you really should. It was so relaxing and in the end I had beautiful pink toes.

Next came my manicure, now I would so love to have the same color on my fingers, I did this back in October as I was on vacation that week. I decided to go with a clear gel polish again well actually the one I picked is clear pink which has just the slightest pink tint to it which gives my nails a really healthy look. she did an awesome job and I was really happy. I think I will try to do it on a vacation soon and get a really pretty color. As she was finishing a man cam in and wanted a pedicure, he took his shoes and socks off and rolled up his pants and one of the nail tech started to give him a pedicure. now I was pretty sure he wasn’t going to get a pretty color and the fact I am guessing he will put his shoes on when he is done he probably wont get any polish but he was still able to enjoy a pedicure. this is the first time I have seen a man in a nail salon getting a pedicure. Maybe things are changing and men will start taking care of their nails.

It was about 5:30 when I was all done. As I said it was going to be a quick night Pedicure 1-12-2016 (1)out and I had to head home as I had some things I had to do but of course I had to get a couplePedicure 1-12-2016 (2) pictures. I love having pretty feet. It was a fun time.

Saturday night at the Escape

Well I had the chance to go out Saturday night also as I was going right by the Escape on my way home from seeing my friend in the hospital. I got there about 6:30 and was the first from our group. Now I have been out all day as I left home as Susan at 10 am this morning and I was a little worried how my makeup looked so my first stop was the ladies room to check my makeup and to my surprised it held up pretty well. now this picture is from earlier in the day but I Susan Miller January 10 2016 (4)still looked the same except a little shiny which was easily fixed with my compact.

Cristine showed up and shortly after Nicole, she had contacted me that she would be in town tonight so I was looking forward to seeing her again. It was almost 2 years ago when I met her for the first time while I was out shopping and we have kept in touch on Facebook. I really do like engaging in girl talk when I am out and its not just about feminine things we talk about everything but what I mean is as Susan I am more willing and comfortable in talking with people as Susan. now of course we were also watching a football game also while we talked, yes females can like football too.

Laura and her friend Jenny and Dee and her friend also showed up. they had gone to see the movie Danish Girl and they said it was really good. there are actually 3 movies I really want to see so I may try to go see them as Susan. it is funny as everything seems more fun as Susan. now of course we were also all talking about the Powerball jackpot as many of us 33 had gone in together and bought a bunch of tickets and at this point we were all winners as they had not had the drawing yet.

It was a fun night out and soon Karaoke started which is both good and bad. it is fun to listen to people sing but it also gets loud and it is hard to talk. I talked some with Nicole about Diva Las Vegas. I am not sure if any of our group will be able to go this year. I know I can’t and Julie and Cassandra wont be able to make it either. Any way Nicole is thinking about going in 2017 and I know I want to go also as I am disappointed I can’t make it this year. if you are looking for a fun event to go to and have some girl time you should look into Diva Las Vegas.

Susan Miller eyes (2)Now I did have to take a few pictures of mySusan Miller January 10 2016 (3) makeup as I thought it turned out well today. I really do love to play with makeup and try different looks.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.
