My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Monday out in Portland, last full day as Susan.

Wow this day got here so fast, I can’t believe how fast my vacation went. I got up this morning about 8:30 and started getting ready as I was going out for the day. I was ready and on my way by 10. My first stop was to Starbucks so I could write and post my blog from Sunday our trip back to Portland. Now for a Monday they were kind of busy but o found a table to sit at. It has been a while since I have been to Starbucks. I spent a couple hours here doing my blog, catching up on e-mails, some work and of course surfing the internet just a relaxing time. I really do like my Starbucks time. It was a little after noon when I left to start shopping.

My first stop was Burlington Coat as I wanted to look at their shoes. They had 3 pairs I liked but only one fit me. It was a wedge heel with open toe so I bought it. It is a little higher then I wanted in a wedge but it is really cute. I looked around at some of their clothes and also their purses, I really need a new purse as mine is starting to show its wear, it is probably 7 to 8 years old. I couldn’t find one I liked, seems all they had were really big or small. I just want a plain black purse medium size.

After here I went to DSW to look at their shoes, I am still looking for a pair of ankle boots. Again, they had several I liked but only one in my size well close to my size. They are just a little tight but I am hoping they will stretch out a little. Of course, of the 4 I liked the only one in my size was not on sale. I went ahead and bout them. They will look cute with my leggings.

From here I went to Lloyd Center to walk around for a while. This was more window shopping then anything as at this point I really wasn’t looking for anything in particular. I wondered through Sears, Marshals, Ulta, Macy’s, and a variety of other stores including Victoria’s Secret. What trip to the mall would not be complete without going in Victoria’s Secret.

On the way, out I stopped in Old Navy as they had a size that everything was 40% off. I have never bought anything here but I figured it was worth the look. While I was walking around here I saw another t-girl. I am always hesitant to go up to another t-girl when they are out as I don’t want to put them on the spot. I smiled at her but she was really not looking at any one else so I am not sure if she even saw me. I left there and made my way to my car and was on my way.

I headed for Cascade Station by the airport and went to Panda Express for an early dinner. Now it was only a little after 3 so it was in-between lunch and dinner so they were not busy when I got there but by the time I finished there were a lot of people here. After I ate I went few shops down to Starbuck’s for a drink and to play on my computer for a while. This Starbucks is always busy but there was one small table open right in the middle so I took it. I spent maybe an hour here just relaxing, Starbucks is a great place to go with your computer and do work.

After Starbucks, I walked around Cascade station, checking out Ross Dress for Less, Staples, DSW, and even BestBuy, it was a good day out. I stopped at the Starbucks by my house on the way home. This is where my day will end as I sit here updating my blog, I think that will be a record, 3 different Starbuck’s in one day. Tomorrow will be the last of my vacation post for Diva Las Vegas 2017 and sadly it will be after my nail appointment.

Thanks for reading and sharing my vacation with me.

Sunday the long drive home

It is Sunday and the end of my Vacation almost. Today we make the long drive home and then I have Monday to be Susan in Portland followed by Tuesday when I must get my nails removed. I am still wondering if they can make the acrylic look normal enough that it would not be that noticeable. My nails are already thin from doing gel Polish for over a year and removing acrylic will just make them even thinner. Well that is something I will have to decide on Tuesday. I will also include the pictures we got that I had to scan into the computer in this blog. This is the photo shoot they did where they take your face and impose it on someone else’s body and of course photoshop it a little to make it look better or in my case soften my face some, what do you think, could I be a centerfold?

Now this blog will be short as all we really did was drive home. I got up at 7:20 to start getting ready with the hopes we could be on the road by 9. After 10 days of being Susan full time I seem to be a little slower getting ready, it is hard work being female 24/7. Now the good thing is Cassandra travels as her male self so she was ready a lot faster than I was so she loaded the car while I finished getting ready. I did pretty good as we were on the in the car leaving the motel by 8:35

Like I said not much happened as we drove about 4 hours and stopped for gas & lunch and I took over driving. Now we ate in the car as we had a long trip home so I was eating a hamburger as I drove with my long nails and didn’t mess up my lipstick, just wore a little off but that can’t be helped.

Our next stop was Weed California about 5:30, we needed gas again and we both needed a bathroom break. Cassandra filled the car and cleaned the window while I went in to use the bathroom. On the way, out the lady at the country was smiling at me and told me to have a wonderful day, I wished her the same and didn’t think anything of it. I got back in the car as I was still driving and Cassandra went in to use the bathroom. She came out and had a smile on her face, now remember she is in male mode on the trip. She looked at me and said guess what the lady inside said. According to Cassandra she said, “How tall is your lady, she is so beautiful and I always feel so tall”. She was a tall girl. I guess not only did she think I was female but that I was Cassandra’s lady, I got a chuckle out of that. Cassandra explained that we were both trans and on our way home and she thought that was wonderful. My story of the day. This is Cassandra and me at Binions in front of 1 Million dollars. They have this in real thick plastic and bolted to the table but you can get a picture behind it, Cassandra even put her hand on it and touched a million dollars. You can do one picture a day and everyone in the picture gets a copy but it takes about 30 minutes to get the picture printed and out. I think they hope you will gamble or put some money in a slot machine while you wait.

We got back in the car and we were off I was still driving. I actually like driving as I find it fun plus being able to see my pretty long nails on the steering wheel made it just that much more fun. We drove on and were making good time. Our goal was to be home between 11 and midnight. This is a group of girls that were in front of use, they are in town for a bachelorette party weekend and they invited Cassandra and I up to get in their picture. How cool is that although Cassandra got cut off on the left.

Now we had sunny and warm weather the whole drive home. Mid 80’s till we hit northern California and then it dropped down to about 70 but still clear blue skies. When we got to Oregon there were some clouds but still sunny and in the 50’s, what a change a few hundred miles makes but so much better on the weather then we had on our trip down a week and a half ago.

As we got closer to home we were trying to figure out if we should get something to eat ass all we had was the burger and fries from in & Out burger. We really hadn’t done anything today other than sit in a car but we decided we should get something so when we hit Eugene we went through the dive through at Taco Bell and got a party pack of tacos. This is a picture of Kim and I at Binions and yes, this time I put my hands on the money and touched it. I can now say I touched a million dollars.

Now by this time it was dark out so now I am driving and eating tacos in the car in the dark. It is challenging by itself but I was also worried about messing up my makeup, lipstick or spilling in my laps as tacos are not easy to eat one handed. I did a great job and didn’t spill anything in my lap or mess up my makeup just a little faded on my lipstick, I guess I am getting pretty good at being female. I don’t know why I was worried as it was dark out and no one could see me and our next stop was Cassandra’s house.

We got to Cassandra’s house and it was just a little after 11 so we unloaded the car and I decided to go home instead of staying there for the night. I got home at midnight and that brings the traveling part of my vacation to an end. Tomorrow Monday I will have a day to be Susan here in town and maybe do some shopping, and on Tuesday a half day of Susan ending in the removal of my nails before going home and back to my male self. It will be 12 days of living totally as Susan.

This is the final picture from Binions, Me, Kim and Cassandra all touching the million dollars. It has been a wonderful trip made even more special by the friends I got to share it with. Now we look forward to next year’s Diva Las Vegas.

Thanks for reading.

Saturday, Diva Las Vegas is over and we leave for Los Angeles

I got up today not looking forward to leaving Las Vegas it has been such a fun week, it went by so fast. I got up at 7:30 to get ready with the hopes of being on or way by 9. We had a 6 hour drive a head of us to get to our hotel in Long Beach which is only a couple miles from Hamburger Mary’s where we will go tonight. Teresa is also going and she left about 15 minutes behind us. We stopped in Barstow to get Gas and while Cassandra who is in male mode went inside I cleaned the windshield, I wonder what people thought. Traffic was bad as we got to close to LA and the GPS kept rerouting us to avoid it, wow what do we do before we had GPS.

WE got to our motel and checked in, Teresa was there before we finished unloading our car, and then made a quick drive to find Hamburger Mary’s and parking as we have only been here once before 2 years ago. We got back to the, motel and Cassandra started getting ready and I had to do some touch up on my makeup and of course I wanted a red lipstick for tonight so I had to change that and then get my dress and heels on an was ready to go.

Now we had planned on being at Hamburger Mary’s at 7 that is what we told Melissa who is driving up from San Diego to meet us. Now it was 5:15 and we just figured we would go early. On the way, There Cassandra thought about the Queen Marry so we drove down to see it only about 5 miles. It was cool to see it and of course we parked and got out to take some pictures. I really love this dress as it is so cute and classy. We all took several pictures here it was a lot of fun. We left here and headed for Hamburger Mary’ which was only 10 minutes away and we parked in the parking garage right behind it.

We got to Hamburger Mary’s by 6 and they were packed inside, the had a big LGBT event going on so we sat outside at the tables by the street and watched the cars go by. It was a nice warm evening out so far but every once in a while, the breeze was cool. It was a nice enjoyable evening in Long Beach. I do need to work on my pose, I watched some of the girls inside getting their pictures taken and they make it look so easy and I just feel stiff when I try to pose for a picture.

There were others sitting outside and Cassandra was playing on Paltalk on her phone. The event inside got over about 7:30 and by then it was getting a little cool outside so we moved inside to a table which was hard to get as they also had a Drag show scheduled for 8 which was late do to the first event going long. By 8 it was busy again inside and it was a good thing we got a table. It was going to be a busy night here. We ordered dinner well I had breakfast as it just sounded good. Cassandra and I took some pictures inside as well by the Hamburger Mary’s backdrop. Also, a little later for T-girl Saturday they have a professional photographer here to take pictures for the lady who runs this web page so Cassandra and I also went over had had him take several pictures which will be on her web page in the next couple weeks. It is cool she does this, she spends a lot of her own money putting on this event every month.

The Drag started about 8:40 and it was good but I have seen so many drag shows over the years I just can’t get that excited about them but the girls were really good and the crowd loved them. When I first started going out the place we went on Friday and Saturday nights did drag shows so I was seeing them 1 to 2 times a week for a couple years. The show went to about 9:30 and then they started T-girl Saturday.

T-girl Saturday is always the first Saturday of the month at hamburger Mary’s in Long Beach California. Now Melissa showed up with a couple of her friends, it was great to see her again. She use to come out with us all the time in Portland till she moved to San Diego. Now the one bad thing about T-girl nights is the fact it is a dance party and the music is so loud but the dance floor was full. I met several girls and I have no idea what their names are as I could not hear over the music, most of the time I just smiled and nodded my head. It also got really hot inside with all the people inside and the fact they were dancing. We found out later one of their air conditioners was broke and of course it was the one on our side.

I was so hot I walked outside for a bit and there was a line of people to get in and the security guard was checking purses and bags and also using a handheld metal detector to scan people, I guess things are different down here. I ran into Valerie who I met in Diva Las Vegas in 2011. It was good to see here and catch up. I also asked her about Alexis who I also met at that Diva Las Vegas. She disappears from Facebook and her blog and then comes back and then disappears. I was just wondering how she was doing.

The heat finally got too bad as even Cassandra was hot so we called it a night about midnight. It was a fun evening but we must get up early as we have a 15-hour drive home tomorrow. Monday will be a Susan day in Portland and then Tuesday my pretty red nails go away.

Thanks for reading and sharing my vacation with me.
