My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Sunday and a little Susan & Starbucks time

It is Sunday and I decided I would go to Starbucks and yes that means Susan time. I had some stuff I had to do today on the computer and I figured why not do it at Starbucks. I took my time getting ready as I so enjoy the whole experience of getting ready. I was on my way and got to the Starbucks by my house at 3:30. Now there were only a few people at tables but there was a line with 6 people in it so I put my computer on one of the tables and then took my place in line. It didn’t take long and I placed my order and paid for it with my cell phone. Yes, I have the Starbucks’s app on my phone and it is so easy to use. Wow cell phones are taking over every part of our lives.

I got my drink and sat down to do my work, being gone for almost two weeks put me a little behind on some things. Now people came and went, some stayed and sat at tables but most seem to get their drinks and go, this Starbucks des not have a drive through so you have to come inside. It took me till almost 5 to finish what I had to do and now t was time to catch up on e-mails and I did the serve for Diva Las Vegas, they ask for everyone’s opinion about how they liked Diva Las Vegas and ways to improve it. They are also taking pictures from everyone who attended so I uploaded my pictures. They will take pictures for a month or so and then have a period of time where anyone who went can loo at them and if they are in them they can ask to have them not posted for public view, not sure how many do that but it is nice they give that input. Hopefully the pictures will be on their webpage by mid-summer, by the way you can go and see previous years.

Once that was done I wrote my blog from Saturday night at the Escape. It really was an enjoyable time and I really didn’t think about how I was dressed I was just out as myself. It seems strange that I am not focused on being Susan. Years ago, when I would go out all I was thinking was how I was dressed and the excitement and fear that went along with it. Now it seems normal, just an everyday outing that anyone would do. It was about 6:20 when one of the workers came over and told me they would be closing in about 15 minutes and of course called me by name. Most of the staff here knows me by name as I have been coming here pretty regular for a while and I even know some of them by name which is so wonderful. I finished up what I was doing and put my computer away.

I decided to go to Wendy’s to get something to eat before going home. I drove to the one I go to as Susan and went in. now they were not as busy as it is almost 7pm. Now this Wendy’s is unique as it is almost all female’s workers. I think I have seen 1 male worker here in all the times I have come here. I got to the counter and ordered and the young lady who helped me told me home nice my nails looked which made me feel good. I thanked her and told her I liked her nails also, she had long nails in a pale orange color. She smiled and said she didn’t like the color she had, as she said it looked a lot better in the bottle. I am sure I had a smile on my face as it really was not a color I would have picked but I didn’t say anything as I didn’t want to say anything bad. By the way there are lots of colors I would put on my nails, that being said I am not saying no one should choose them. It is just my personal preference as I like the reds and pinks better, I really love red and pink. I talked with her for a little while as I waited for my meal.

I sat down and ate as I watched the big TV which had Soccer on. Now as I sat there I saw one of the workers who was male cleaning up and emptying the garbage. Now I only bring this up as I noticed his nails were painted, black but it was nail polish. Any way I finished my meal and then it was time to head home. I got home just before 8pm. It was a relaxing day and I got some things I needed to do done.

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

Saturday night at the Escape

It is Saturday and I am going to the Escape tonight, it has been 3 weeks as we missed 2 Saturdays as we were at Diva Las Vegas. We had a blast there so I thought I would give a few recommendations before I go on. We stayed at the Four Queens hotel casino downtown, awesome place. We were treated wonderful and they really want us to come back next year. The Hoover Dam tour, really fun and we had a great time and were treated wonderful. PF Chang at Planet Hollywood Great food and we were treated wonderful. Bahama Breeze awesome place, a must if you are in Las Vegas. For golfing the club at Sunrise and also Wild horse golf club where awesome and a good choice for a round of golf. Now there were a lot of fun things we did and had fun at all and were treated wonderful every place we went but these stuck out in my mind.

Back to tonight, I started getting ready about 4 as I wanted to get out as early as I could. I took my time and tonight I wore my wine-colored dress and of course I did a different lipstick to match my dress. I was on my way by a little after 5 and got to the Escape at 5:30, the good thing about getting here so early is parking is not an issue and it gives me a little time on my computer as I wait for other girls to show up. I ordered dinner and got out my computer but I didn’t have long to wait. Kate was the first to show up she had been out all day and had gone to a Gem show. She is sending most of the weekend as Kate. We talked for a few minutes about Diva Las Vegas and she had a lot of fun, I think she will go again next year. Cassandra showed up next and Kimberly right after her and so did Melissa so we had 5 of us here by 6. Seems we are getting out earlier. Of course, we also go home earlier, I say it is because it gets so loud when karaoke starts and it gets busy not because we are getting older.

Now the 4 of us talked for a while and I still find it interesting the differences in people, we all have different points of views on some things even though we are all transgender and feel the same about this. There are always things that should be avoided, politics and religion are 2 that come to mind. I try never to bring those into conversations and try my best to keep them out of my blog. In Las Vegas 1 night I was sitting between someone who supported Trump on my left and someone who hated Trump on my right and when the one started to talk bad about Trump I could see the other one getting mad and I knew just what to do. I held my pretty nails out and asked the dealer what she thought. She smiled at me and told me how pretty they were and we started talking about nails and it actually got the other 2 people off the topic of politics and every thing was good again. So, this is my advice, remember you never know what others think and before you say something (especially something that is controversial) you might want to avoid it. The one thing I do know about politics is you will not change how the other one feels by attacking them or calling them names, as a matter of fact you probably won’t change their minds even with polite talk about it so really no point. Opps a little off track again but I do have blonde hair so I can get away with it.

Michelle also showed up and she also had fun at Diva Las Vegas, yes this really was a lot of the conversations tonight as most of us out tonight just got back from there. Laura M. and her girlfriend also showed up and it was good to see them. Laura got her phone stolen in Las Vegas, well maybe she lost it and the person who found it kept it but either way it was tracked to an apartment complex in Las Vegas. Sadly, the police do nothing about this as it happens so often and hard to track down. She got a new phone but couldn’t get it to work as they gave her the wrong SIM card so for the last couple days in Las Vegas she had no phone. Now it is funny as I can remember not having a cell phone and it was not an issue but once you give yourself to the cell phone you become so dependent on it. Other then my parents and my phone number I don’t know any one else’s, same way with e-mails addresses, you start typing their name and the phone pulls it all up and completes it for you. Texting, e-mails, photos, cameras, navigation and so much more. When you lose it you really are cut off from everything. Luckily, they got it fixed right after she got home, I really hope this never happens to me.

Cassie also showed up for a while as did Kim, now I met Kim once before but it was several years back so I didn’t remember a lot about her, yes, I am Blonde and I am using that again. It was nice to talk with her again and catch up. She doesn’t get out much, seems she was out at the Escape several months ago bit on a night I missed. She had met a few of the girls that night so she knew a few of them which always makes it easier. She is really nice and I hope she comes out more. She is not actually a member of our group but we encouraged her to join.

Now about 8:30 it started getting really busy which was nice as they had the air conditioner on and it was a little chilly tonight here and I am almost always warm. Of course, my dress didn’t cover most of my shoulders, ladies’ outfits are just not as warm as men’s but way cuter and more fun to wear. As it got busier it did get a little warmer inside. Karaoke started and it did get loud and it was hard to have conversations any more but it was fun to listen to the songs and even sing along with a few I really liked.

Some of the girls left earlier but I stayed till about 10:30 before I called it a night. Wow how things have changed as we use to not go out till 8 or 9 and we stayed till they closed down. It was a fun night and it was sad to see it come to an end. This week I will be out 3 times as we have our Wednesday night dinner and then Thursday we are getting our together to work on our web site. Melissa has done a wonderful job with it and has moved it all over to our new web server and now she is going to move our e-mail server. I know Cassandra and I have e-mails addresses at Rosecutytgirls.com and maybe Julie so once she moves it we will have to reconfigure our e-mail program. I think Melissa & Kate also want to set up an e-mail address there as I think it would be nice for all the administrator to have an e-mail address through our group. And then next Saturday night I will also be out again. Lots of Susan time which I enjoy.

Thanks for reading and be sure and follow what I am doing as Susan on my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at Bridgeport Brewing

It is Wednesday night and we are having dinner at Bridgeport Brewing. I have never been there so I was really looking forward to it. Now this makes the 14th day in a row I have been Susan, 12 days totally as Susan, a half day of Susan and then out for dinner as Susan, it has been a fun 2 weeks. I took my time getting ready as I still enjoy the time I spend becoming Susan, it is just so relaxing.

I got downtown Portland at 6:30 and found a parking spot a half block away. I go inside and Cassandra and Kate were already there. It was good to see them again, we had an awesome time in Las Vegas. We talked for a while and waited to see who else would show up. Barb showed up just before 7 so there were 4 of us for dinner. We had a nice dinner and talked about or trip to Diva Las Vegas, Kate had a video of our group playing our big hand of Blackjack, if you are not sure what I am talking about you should read my blog from our last night in Last Vegas. We all showed Barb some of our pictures, it was a fun night.

The food was really good and the staff was wonderful it really was a nice place to go and eat, I would recommend it for a nice night out. Now Kate took a few pictures so I had to post this of our group. Now I also got to hear about Kates trip home, she flew as Kate from Las Vegas to Portland and even had a picture of her on the plane. How fun is that. I have never flown as Susan but it is on my list of things to do and I am planning of Flying as Susan to LA when we go on our cruise in October, actually most of our girls are planning on flying down. It will be so much fun. It was after 9 when we called it a night. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoy my time out with my friends.

Now a little side note, I went to Panda Express Friday night to get dinner as my male self and the young lady who helped me noticed my nails when I paid. She told me I had beautiful nails and I thanked her. She then showed me her nails and told me she couldn’t have her nails done and work there. I told her that was to bad and then she said at least she new her toes were pretty which I thought was a funny comment. Any way I told her that evened it out as my fingers may look better but I bet she had prettier feet but all the time I was thinking about my pretty pink toe nails. Any way I just thought this was an interesting conversation.

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

Tuesday and my vacation comes to an end after 12 days

Okay the day is her, the end of my vacation, the end of 12 days a being Susan and of course 12 days of having long pretty red nails. Now I have a 1pm appointment at dream Nails. It is always sad when I have to remove my nails. Now I had no plans other than going

to the nail salon so I slept in as it is my last day of vacation. It was almost 10am when I was ready. I decided to got to Starbucks till my appointment and just play on my computer and enjoy the last couple of hours of my nails. Now I did take a couple pictures of my nails before I get them removed, if you don’t know I do have a thing about pretty nails.

I got to Starbucks and they were busy but there was an open table so I set my computer down and went up to order my drink. Now the lady who took my order told me how pretty my nails were which made me feel really good as I always like to hear this but also sad as I know in a few hours they will be gone. Now it was fun but also went by so fast and soon it was 12:45 and time to go to the nails salon.

I got to Dream nails and went in, they were not busy just one lady getting her nails done and Anna was ready for me so I sat right down Now Anna asked how my vacation was aid I told her it was great. She asked what I did and I told her I went to Las Vegas, she said that sounded like fun. The nail tech next to her said she wished she could have gone.

Anna asked me if I just wanted a fill which I really wanted to say yes but I told her I needed the red gone and shorter. She started to take the red off and the first nail was the hardest it really was sad. One by one the red disappeared from my nails till they were just the acrylic. as she worked we talked about my trip. Anna also told me a little about her family and even showed me some pictures on her phone, it was a really enjoyable time. Now it was time to shorten my nails, again I had that sad feeling as she ground them shorter. Now it was time for the fill with the new acrylic. I was thinking I have had acrylic on my nails now since March 25 of 2017, 13 months. Once the new acrylic was on she smoothed them out and shaped them. It really was a relaxing time and I really do enjoy going to the nail salon and getting my nails done.

Now it was tie to put the gel polish on and of course I went with the wedding dress color again, not the same as the red but still a nice look. I really do like going to the nail salon when they are not busy just a much more relaxing and personal experience. Anna did

a wonderful job and it was almost 2 when I left the salon with my pretty nails. Now I was on my way home to switch back to my normal boring male life. I got home and became my male self and went out and mowed my yard, not the same. Now I was looking at my nails and I noticed a couple things. One she didn’t shorten then enough, it is amazing as being so long when she shortened them I didn’t notice the length. The other thing is the fact she put tips on before I left to lengthen them which are still on and they give the ends a white look almost like a faded French nail. They really do look good but may be more noticeable then I have had in the past. I took a few pictures And so that is how my vacation comes to an end. It really was a wonderful time with wonderful friends and I am looking forward to our cruise in October and of course Diva Las Vegas next year but for now it will be back to a couple times a week to go out as Susan. Thanks for reading my blog and sharing this part of my life with me

Monday and I am home from Diva Las Vegas

It is Monday and I am home from Diva Las Vegas; the week went but so fast but was so much fun. The girls from the Rose City T-girls that were there are, Cassandra, Julie, Susan (me), Veronica, Kate, (her girlfriend), Laura, Melissa (her wife), and Brenda so we had a good turnout. It was so much fun to spend time with them and we did so many fun things. But as with all things it must come to an end. Today I have a full day as Susan and then tomorrow, Tuesday I will have the morning and then around noon go to the nail salon to get rid of my pretty red nails.

Anyway, I didn’t have anything really planned and so I slept in as I was tired. I didn’t start getting ready till after 9 and it felt good. I took my time as I know I will soon be back to a couple times a week as Susan. Now once I was ready the first thing was grocery shopping as my fridge is empty. Now for this I did drive to a Safeway a few miles away that I don’t go to, even though I go to the Starbucks by my house that is only as Susan. Not willing to go to the grocery store near my house that I shop at as my male self. I got what I needed and then went home and put the groceries away. It is funny how even the simple everyday things are so much more fun as Susan.

Now it was time to go to Starbucks, I did pick the one at Cascade Station by the airport as I also wanted to go to a few of the stores there. I got there a little after 11am and got my computer out. Now I had several things I needed to do, write my blog from yesterday, go through all my pictures from the trip and then catch up on some work as I will have to go back to work on Wednesday and I am always behind after vacation. Now going through the pictures really took longer than I thought as I had over 100 which for 10 days is not that many. I wanted to post them to our group the Rosecitytgirls.com but as our web site has a limit on how big the picture can be I had to open everyone and resize them and then of course save them and for this I named them with who was in them. Very time consuming but worth it and son they were uploaded to our group, I hope our members looks at them and sees how much fun we had. I set them up in a shared folder so hopefully the other girls from the trip will also post theirs. Now it was fun and people came and went as I sat there on my computer working away. I was amazed when I realized it was almost 3, where had the time went.

I left Starbucks and went over to DSW to look at shoes. Now I am not really looking for anything but just fun to look. From here I went to Staples and again it was more just to look around. My next stop was Ross dress for Less, I spent a little more time here and tried on a couple cute dresses but they were just a little small. It really was more about just being out. My next stop was Best Buy again really to just look around, I like seeing the new computers. I left here and drove over to Target and went and looked at their makeup section. I am still looking for the one lipstick I like but looking online I don’t think they make the color I like anymore, and even worse looking online they don’t sell this brand within 25 miles of me.

It was about 4:30 now and I decided to go to get something to eat and my choice was the Wendy’s I have been going to. Now with traffic it took me almost 30 minutes to get there and, on my way, I had to go by the Toyota Dealership and have free car washes there so I stopped and ran my car through the wash before going to Wendy’s. They were pretty busy as I got there just a little after 5. I went in and ordered my food and got a table where I could watch the TV as they had Baseball on, the Dodgers game so I sat and watched the game as I ate. It was a little after 6 when I left.

Now it was what I should do, getting late on a Monday night and not a lot of options but I didn’t want to go home so yes you guessed it. I stopped by the Starbucks by my house as they are open 8pm. Now when we were on our trip Cassandra, Peggy and I stopped at a Starbucks and Cassandra used her cell phone to pay for her drinks and it got me thinking as I always use gift cards. So earlier today I put the Starbucks app on my phone and linked it to my gift card. So tonight, I was going to try it and it worked really well. Just showed my phone and they scanned the code on it and that was it. My drink was paid for. A lot easier then digging out the gift card. I can’t explain why I like going to Starbucks so much anymore than I can explain why I dress, I just do.

I stayed here till 8 when they closed just catching up on news and what is going on in the world as I was kind of out of touch while I was on vacation, just too busy. It was a relaxing day and a good way to wind down before my vacation comes

to an end. I will end with a picture on my pretty nails as they will disappear tomorrow at 1pm

Thanks for reading and be following me on my Diva Las Vegas vacation and be sure and see what’s new for Susan in my most recent blog.

Sunday and the drive home from Palm Springs to Portland

Well it is Sunday and we are driving hoe from Palm Springs to Portland as our wonderful vacation comes to an end. It really is sad as I know my days with my pretty nails are coming to an end. I got up at 2:30am to start getting ready, shower and full makeup all to become Susan for the ride home. Now I have gotten this question a lot why I would want to do all that do the makeup just to spend 16 hours in a car on a drive home. That is a good question and the only thing I can say is it is art of being Susan. When I first went to Diva Lasa Vegas in 2010 I decided I would be Susan, be female for the whole trip start to finish and in all my trips to Diva Las Vegas I have spent the whole trips as Susan. The only thing I take that is from my male life is my drivers license and a male credit card that matches my female credit card just in case I have an issue. This may not make sense to most butt for 12 days straight I am totally Susan, totally female. Now before you say anything no this is not leading up to me transitioning I am happy how I am in my life but for those 12 days I live as a female. That means always dressing as Susan and unfortunately for me I cannot go without makeup as I would look horrible so in this way I am at a disadvantage to females who can skip makeup and look fine. And so, I get up early and do my makeup just to ride in the car as at some point on a 16 hour drive I will have to get out of the car and then I will look my best. Now I will say I am not as fast or excited on day 11 at 2:30am getting ready as I was on the first day of the trip as it really is a lot of work to be female and look good.

I was all ready by 3:30am and Peggy, Cassandra and I were on our way. It is amazing how many cars are on the road in Palm Springs on a Sunday morning at this time. Now I did sleep a little early here and there till the sun came up but I was still tired as it has been a long, busy and fun week. I am so glad I have a couple more days off, one to rest and also to keep my nails a little longer.

We had a good drive home, Cassandra drove the whole way and I got to ride like a princess. We did stop a few times for food, gas and bathroom breaks and I got out of the car without a second thought about anything. I really wasn’t even thinking about how I looked well other than making sure my makeup was fine and not shiny. Really looking back on the whole week, I really didn’t think about being Susan or female other than when I dressed or touched up my makeup. When I was out or at the Blackjack table I was just me now yes when I bet or saw my hands I saw the pretty nails and every once in a while, my hair got in my face but I was just me. Several years back all I was thinking about when I was out, was how I was dressed, that I was out as a female. There was that excitement, fear, now I am just me and that really is a wonderful feeling. Sometimes I do miss the excitement I felt but the fact I will go any place now as Susan is a far better experience.

It was a beautiful drive home, sunshine all the way. Now this is the 7 time I have gone to Diva Las Vegas and only once I went by myself, way more fun going with Cassandra, Julie and Peggy. But if you think about it 16 hours down and 16 hours back and then the times we went through LA I figure over the last 10 years I have spent about 250 hours in a car as Susan with Cassandra. It has really given us a chance to talk and get to know each other. Susan really is a lucky lady to have such wonderful friends.

It was about 8pm when we got to Cassandra and Peggy’s house. We unloaded the car which trust me it is way easier to unload then load as it took some work to get everything in just right so we had room for all 3 of us, ladies do not travel light. My male self could have made this trip with one suitcase but Susan needed 2 big ones and a small duffle bag with makeup and changes for on the way down and back. Susan had 8 pairs of shoes with her and believe it or not I did not have the most luggage. But as a lady you never know what you might need. I also took 14 dresses (only wore 5 of them). One of the fun things of being Susan.

Once on packed I got my stuff in my car and said my goodbyes. It is sad as I have spent some wonderful time with Cassandra and Peggy over the week and I was on my way home. I got home a little after 9 and on packed all my stuff and now I make the Diva Las Vegas vacation over. All that is left is a day and a half of Susan time at home till Tuesday afternoon when I will get my nails done and then back to my male life and the first male clothes I will have put on in 12 days. From past experiences the shoes will feel heavy and the clothes ruff and boring but such is life.

Now I had to answer the big question I had, how did I do gambling. My goal is to have fun and hopefully break even, if I do that it was a good vacation. Well I counted all my money and I had $62 more than I left home with which may not seem like a lot but I spent about $200 in cash on food, golf and the Dam Tour and another $225 for my share of the gas down and back which means I won almost $500 at the tables over the week, Susan had fun.

Thanks for reading my blogs and following my Journey as Susan. Be sure and see what’s new on my most recent blog and catch up on any of my blogs you missed from Diva Las Vegas 2018.

Here is a picture from my trip.

Saturday and we leave Las Vegas to take Julie back to Palm Springs

It is Saturday and Diva Las Vegas is over for 2018 what a fun time we had but it is sad to see it come to an end. Now I was up late again last night but luckily, I didn’t have to get up as early today. I got up at 7:30 and started getting ready for the trip to Palm Springs. Cassandra and Julie were ready before me but then as they are traveling in male mode they didn’t have to do makeup. It was almost 9 when I was ready and we went down to check out. It has been a wonderful trip and everyone here at the Four Queens have been awesome. As we got off the elevator we ran in to Chris, he was the bell Hop who took our stuff up to our rooms a week ago and of course he remembered us. He asked how our golf tournament went and how we enjoyed our stay. He was so awesome. He even asked how many stayed here and told us if we could get 10 rooms we could get a group discount. He went to the counter and got us some information and a contact name to call next year.

Julie was checking out and the lady asked if she had a player’s card which she didn’t, then she told Julie she could get a discount (over 55) so Julie went and got a player’s card. Of course, Cassandra got hers out ad got the discount and she even gave it to me even though I am only 54 how awesome is this. She even used our comp dollars we had left over. I saved about $100 on my room and between the of us it was almost $500 because of the players card. Even last nights dinner we got a 2 for 1 and used some comp dollars. Really if you go to Las Vegas take advantage of the players card, tip though the smaller casinos I think are better for this as they don’t get the big gamblers so smaller gamblers are treated better. The lady who checked us out went way beyond by letting us know this as we would have paid our bills and been just as happy as we didn’t know. I can’t say enough about her. Cassandra was getting the car and another lady came out and gave me a card for the lady in charge of sales and again she thanked us for coming and told us she hoped we would be back nest year and told me to call the number and they could do a group rate all we needed was 10 rooms and it is like the cruise we are taking. Everyone books their room and just gives them the name we set up and they will all get the group rate. They really want us back next year and that is awesome.

Soon we were in the car and on our way, it was a 4-hour trip to Palm Springs. By the way here is a picture from last night of Julie and I when we played our $100 hand that I missed in my blog yesterday. It was a nice drive and we all talked about how much fun we had. We got to Palm Springs a little after 2 and it was hot, in the 90’s. Peggy and Trixie were waiting or us and it was good to see them again tomorrow Peggy, Cassandra and I will head back to Portland and Julie & Trixie will stay a couple more weeks before they come back to Portland.

We all talked and of course we told them all about our trip and they told us about all the fun they had, we were also texting pictures with them through the week so we already knew about most of what we all did. How did we survive before cell phones and texting? We had a nice afternoon.

Trixie made dinner for us, Chicken and potato’s and it was about 7 when we ate as we let it cool off a little (into the 80’s) so we could eat out on the patio. It was a really fun time. Now we were talking about our trip home and Cassandra wants to leave at 3:30am as she hast to work on Monday and doesn’t want to get home to late. I am off so I didn’t care of course to leave that early I have to get up at2:30am as it takes Susan longer to get ready. It is hard work being a lady but so worth it although I am looking forward to a few days of no Susan as my face needs a break from all these close shaves. After dinner we had some ice cream and talked a little more. It was about pm when we went to bed as it will be a short night.

It has been a wonderful trip and made all the more special with my friends, well they are more like family. I can’t imagine my life without them and I love them all. It has gone by so fast, it is hard to believe I have been Susan for 9 days straight and have had my pretty nails all that time.

Friday last day of Diva Las Vegas.

It is Friday and the last full day of Diva Las Vegas 2018, wow the week has gone by so fast. Hard to believe I have had my pretty long nails for a week now. We are going golfing at Wild Horse so than means getting up early once again. I was up at 6:40 to get ready. We left at 8am and got to the golf course just before 9. It was Cassandra, Veronica, Julie, Michele and myself.

We had a great round of golf and the weather was perfect, warm and no wind. Now as there were just 5 of us we just played straight golf. I had a good round and shot a 92 which was fine with me and that put me in 3rd of 5 rights in the middle. We got back to the hotly to clean up around 2. We all cleaned up and we were going to go to Margarita Ville but decided to stay here on a Friday night and eat at Magnolia again. We went to the Blackjack tables for a while and gambled, I lost $50 before I quit and took my 2 remaining $25 chips and we went over to have dinner. Now for dinner we had all of us, Laura, Kate, Veronica, Julie, Robyn, Cassandra, Tara and myself. I ordered a Prime Rib again, it was only $16.99 tonight and it was good but I will say last nights was better, maybe not that much better. We had a nice dinner.

After dinner we went into the little pub cellar here and had a drink and just talked for a while. It was a nice time and we talked all about Diva Las Vegas and what a fun time we all had this week. It really is a wonderful event and so much fun. I have been Susan full time this week for over 7 days and it has been wonderful although I am getting a little slower at doing my makeup and getting ready. I love being Susan but will be ready for a few days of just being my male self again. We also talked about being out as females and I have said many time I really have had no problems other than so looks and that you can’t get away from as people look at each other. I look at cute girls especially when they are in pretty dresses and heels. If people have different hair or anything that makes them stand out you will at least take a second look and that goes for transgender people also. I don’t have a problem with people looking at me as I really don’t even notice it. Now when one might run into issues are almost always with drunk people (men) and that is no exception as when you are drunk you are more likely to do stupid stuff or things you wouldn’t do if you had not been drinking. I am not saying it is not who you are or drinking makes you different, we all have those things inside we think about others. 99% of people don’t act on things like that but when you have had too much to drink you will sometimes and yes, we did have a couple drunk men that made a few comments and I attribute it to how much they drank as one could hardly get out of his seat. In 10 plus years this was probably the worst thing I have dealt with and I am sure it was the alcohol and I was not going to let it ruin a wonderful vacation and tine as Susan. Off track again.

Cassandra started talking about Blackjack and came up with an idea. We each go to the Blackjack table and get $100 chip and bet on 1 hand but we do it as a team. We had of 5 of us that wanted to do this. Now the way it will work as we paly as a team so we all decide how the hands will be played and if I lose and Cassandra wins she will pass me the $100 chips she wins and we keep playing and we play till we decide as a group to quit. We spent 20 plus minutes talking how we would do this and how we play and we will split what we win between the 5 of us.

We were all ready and we all walked over to the $25 table and bought in and got our $100 chip, now I have bet I think as high as $40 on one hand and have split and or doubled down and had ore than $100 on the table but I have never bet $100 on a hand to start so this will be a first. Now they were putting new cards in play so we had a few minutes while the dealer shuffled and Kate took some pictures and we even got the pit boss to take a table picture of us holding up our $100 chips. Now with all the pictures and of course our excitement we did get a small crowd around our table, I looked back and there was maybe 10 or more people standing there to watch. Finally, it was time and we all putt our $100 out and the dealer dealt the hand. Robyn got an 11 and doubled down Veronica, Julie and I got low hands and Cassandra got a 19, dealer had a 110 showing. Robyn got her card face down, Veronica went bust $100 gone, Julie went bust $100 gone, I went bust $100 gone Cassandra stood on 19. Dealer turned another 10 for 20 and Cassandra’s $100 was gone. All we had left was Robyn and her card was a 3 for 14 and her $200 was gone. One hand and less then 1 Minute and $600 was gone but it was still an incredible hand and had it gone the other way we still may be playing. Don’t get me wrong as it sucks to lose $100 so fast but it was something I have never done and I shared it with my best friends and that made it special and I am sure we will talk about this again and remember it and we are already talking about doing it again next year on the last night.

Now it was getting late and everyone wanted to go up to the room and get packed for tomorrow accept for Veronica as she is here for a couple more days. She wanted to go play Blackjack so I told her I would walk over with her. We got to the table and there was only 2 people playing her table, yes, she has a favorite table that has side bets. It was a $10 table and I still had my 2 $25 chips so I sat down. Well I decided to play $25 and just see what would happen. I won the first hand, and then the second, third, fourth and fifth, I won 5 hands in a row before I lost a hand so I decided I would keep playing I played for about an hour betting $25 to $40 a hand, winning some and loosing some but still had more than I started and was having fun and the people at the table were great. Well all things must come to an end and a new dealer came in and my luck went away. I lost the next 5 hands in a row so I decided to quit. I cashed out and I had $675 my best win of the week.

I went upstairs to my room and I was feeling really good right now. Cassandra was still up so I showed her what I did it was a great feeling. I got my stuff packed and sat down and counted my money just to see where I was. I actually have almost $200 more in cash than I came down with and am sure I spent at least $200 on stuff here this week so I did really well at the tables this year. It was almost 1am when I went to bed so it will be another short night as we want to leave by 9am in the morning and that means Susan needs to be up before 8am to get ready. Cassandra and Julie are traveling back as their male selves o I am sure they will be ready way before me.

Thursday evening of Diva Las Vegas

We got back from the Hoover Dam at 1 so we were rushed as we needed to be to Top Golf at 2 so we were in a rush. We went to our rooms just long enough to make a quick change and we were on our way. We got to Top Golf at 1:45 and they were packed. Now being so busy they would not take reservation without a huge deposit so we took our chances and as in all things in Las Vegas the odds were not with us. They said it would be at least a 2 hour wait so now we had an issue as the farewell dinner started at 6. We decided to go to the bar and have a snack as we have not eaten yet today and see if something opened early.

There were about 12 of us so we had a few tables put together so we could all sit together and talk. Now we had a nice time and stayed here till after 3 but nothing opened up. Cassandra, Julie, Veronica and I talked and we decided to skip the farewell dinner and go get a nice steak dinner. Veronica wanted to try Gordon Ramsay pub and grill at Caesars Palace. We went back to our hotel and cleaned up and changed as I wanted a dress for tonight. Cassandra had made reservation for 7 so we ad to rush a little as it was not just the getting to Caesars Palace but parking and then walking to where the restaurant is as the resorts on the strip are huge. We got there right at 7 and went in. now I have never herd of this place but it is kind of like Ruth’s Chris.

We all ordered and I went with the Prime rib ($55) as I love Prim Rib. Now I don’t go to place like this, high end but every once in a while, it is worth it. Our food came and I will say it was a really good dinner and I would say it was every bit as good as Ruth Chris and not as expensive so I would give then a better rating. We really did have a nice dinner and great conversation. After dinner we had to walk through the casino so to keep my players card active I put it in a slot machine with $5, I am not a fan of slot machines but it works. Luckily for my $5 I walked away with almost $25 it was a good night

We got back to the hotel and we all went into the casino to play a little Blackjack. I got to sit at a table with anther T-girl and her wife, the funny thing is she was not here for Diva Las Vegas. They were just on vacation and saw Cassandra in the casino last night and she decided to come to the casino today as her female self, Candy. They were both really nice and I enjoyed talking with them and we played for several hours. And I only lost $40 so it was a good night.

It was about midnight when I stopped playing and went over to see how Veronica was doing as Julie and Cassandra had already gone up to bed. Veronica has her favorite table and she was easy to find. She was doing okay so I stood behind her and we talked a little as she played. Now I was on my black and gold dress and my flat sandals and just standing there when a man came by and asked if he could by me a drink. I thanked him but said no. Wow this is twice this week, still not comfortable with this. It was almost 1 am when I got to bed, another late night. We are going golfing again in the morning so it will mean getting up at 6:45am again. I am going to need a vacation to recover from my vacation.

Thanks for reading and be sure to keep up with what’s new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog and also my blog for Diva Las Vegas 2018. Here is one of my favorite pictures from this week.

Thursday and we are going to tour the Hoover Dam

Our big thing today is going to the Hoover Dam for a tour and of course pictures. Over the years I have come to Las Vegas many times and have gone and looked at the Hoover Dam and always wanted to take the tour, well this year we are going to do it. Julie, Cassandra and I are going to meet Melissa and her wife at the Hoover Dam at 9am so that means getting up early again. A fun vacation but late nights and early mornings. We were ready and in the car by 8am and on our way, takes about 40 minutes to get there.

As we were getting close Cassandra saw a sign so of course we had to stop and get pictures, have to wonder what the cars going by thought. We each took several pictures here and I really liked the way this one turned out, I actually have a cute pose. We were only about 10 minutes from the Dam here.

We got to the Hoover Dam and parked, Melissa and her wife arrived as we were getting out of the car so perfect timing. We had to wait a little as they don’t open till 9 so we looked around a little from the outside. It was also a little windy. I really think the wind is the thing I hate most about being female as it messes up my hair.

We went inside the visitor center and had to go through a security check and medal detector. Another new experience for Susan but it is just like it is at the airport so good practice for when we take our cruise this fall. We got tickets for the 10:15 tour so we had a little time to watch a short movie about the building of the Dam and go through their exhibits. Now they were really busy and so many people but I really didn’t think about how I was dressed, as a matter of fact we were all just being ourselves and not thinking about anything else, how wonderful is that. None of us even noticed if people were watching us. We actually did two tours as there is the powerhouse tour and the Dam tour, each takes about 30 minutes. Now the tour is informative and I would say if you get the chance to go you should. That being said once you have gone on it you don’t need to go again as you really don’t see anything from inside. This is a selfie of me inside the tunnel in the Dam but they do give you some history and information that is kind of fun. I think the best pictures were outside in the wind of course.

You really do get some great views from the Dam so by al means you need to go and walk the top of the Dam and look at everything. We were her a few hours as it was almost noon when we left. Now they built a new Bridge about 10 years ago to get traffic off the top of the Dam and you can walk out on the bridge and look down on the Dam, wonderful views. It is hard to find this but I have been here a couple times as my male self so I knew where it was. I told Cassandra where to turn and she was convinced it was just a parking lot which really is what it looks like. We did park and climbed the hill and walked out on the bridge and the view was spectacular. Of course, we got some wonderful pictures. This is Susan with the wind-blown look. There were lots of people here also doing the same thing we were, getting pictures and no one seemed to give us a second look.

We didn’t spend a lot of time here but the view was wonderful and worth the stop. We left here about 12:30 and we got back to our hotel right about 1 pm and had to rush to get ready as we are doing top golf at 2 and it will take aboutv30 minutes to get there but that will be the next blog. There are a few more pictures below.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what is knew with Susan on her most recent blog and also what I did at Diva Las Vegas 2018.

Yes, it has been a great week but is coming to an end way to fast as I knew it would. I have had my beautiful long red nails now for a full week and now I am already starting to think about Tuesday when I will have to have the shortened and the red removed, it will be so sad.
