My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Thursday and some early Susan time

Well it is Thursday and I had a wonderful time yesterday at the Oregon Coast with my friends. It was a full day of Susan. today I have things I have to do later in the afternoon and so I wanted to start my day early to get as much Susan time as possible. My goal was to do what I did Monday Morning as my male self. I got up at 5 am yes 5 am to start getting ready. Today I am wearing my leggings and my maroon sweater top that looks really cute although as it is tighter, I need a better figure then I really have so that means wearing my corset. Now with my long nails it was a little harder to lace it up the back and it put me a little behind but I have a figure that looks great. My goal was to be out the door by 6 which I didn’t make as it was about 6:15 when I left. My first stop was IHOP at Cascade station for breakfast. I went here on Monday as my male self with my acrylic nails and wondered if they would recognize me. Now with traffic I got there a little after 7 and went in. they were not busy maybe 10 other people spread around. The lady came and showed me to a table and was really nice but I didn’t see either of the two ladies that were here on Monday. I ordered the same thing I had Monday and waited for my food. I had a nice breakfast and then left a little before 8 and drove down the street to the Starbuck’s. I have gone to this one many times as Susan but again on Monday I was here as my male self for a couple hours.

I parked and went in and they were busy but there was one table by the door so I set my computer on it and went and stood in line. now looking at the workers at least 4 of them were here on Monday including the young lady who would take my order. I chatted with her as she took my order but I don’t think she recognized me after all this Starbucks is really busy and as my male self, I really didn’t stand out from any one else other then for my nails. Now I had to wait for my drink and again they had 3 people making drinks and 2 of them were here on Monday. The lady who called my name for my drink was also the one who made my drink on Monday and the same thing I don’t think she knew either like I say they are really busy. I went and sat down at my table which has 4 chairs and was next to the big table I was at on Monday. It is amazing how busy this Starbucks is on a week day morning. All the tables were full inside yes, I had a man ask if he could sit at my table and I said yes and most of the tables outside were full. Again, a nice day out sunny but mid 50’s so a little cool but that didn’t stop people from sitting outside. Most of the time there was 10 or more n line to order and probably just as many waiting for their drinks. It is a good place to people watch.

Well the first thing I did was write my blog from yesterdays trip to the Oregon Coast, we had a wonderful day and got lots of pictures so be sure and check out my blog from yesterday. I stayed here a couple hours taking care of some work I also needed to do on my computer and as it was busy people would come and go and I had a few more people ask if they could share my table and none of them seemed the least bit bothered by me or even curious as they never said a thing although a few times we did talk mostly about how busy it was here. It was a little after 10 when I left as I wanted to do a little shopping. I actually like Cascade station for shopping as they have a nice mix of stores and today with the weather it was perfect as it is an outside mall. I went over and parked by Staples and went in and looked around, I like looking at computer stuff after all my current laptop is at least 5 years old and my desktop even older so at some point I will need to get a newer one but right now they both work well.

I left Staples and walked next door to ULTA and looked around, I did pick up some face powder as I am almost out but it was fun to look at all the different makeup. From here I went next door to Nordstrom’s Rack and looked around. A lot of girls say this is a great place to shop but as much as I like it, I don’t think I have ever found something in my size I liked, but I would have to go back through all my blogs to find out for sure. From here it was down to DSW to look at shoes. Didn’t find anything here either so it was next door to Ross Dress for Less, I really like this one and have found a lot of things here but not today. I found 2 really cute dresses but they were just too small for me. From here I walked all the way to the end to best Buy and looked around checking out all their electronics. When I was done here, I had to walk all the way back down to my car just like all the other people here shopping.

I left Cascade station and it was about 12:30 so I drove down to COSTCO as I needed to pick some things up. Of course, COSTCO is busy anytime you go there. Now what is cool is I have a Susan COSCO card. I joined a couple years ago and I saw that you could have a card for another person at your address but the drawback was they had to show ID. Well about a month after I joined, I went in one night as Susan and talked to them and explained about being transgender and I live part of my life this way. Well they gave me a card with Susan’s name and picture on it and listed her and my domestic partner. So, I looked around for a little while and then went and got what I needed, shampoo, conditioner and dove bar soap. On the way out I stopped and got a hotdog and drink, $1.50 you can’t go wrong. And I sat down at the tables with all the other people and ate it. On my way out I also got some gas for my car. It was about 1:45 when I left here and headed back closer to home.

Now at 6 I have some online training I have to do and yes this is more like a chat room, it has video so I will have to be my male self so I figure I have to be home no later then 5:30 at the latest so I can clean up and remove all traces of Susan well accept for the nails of course. I will have to make sure I keep my hands on the keyboard and not reach up and scratch my face. Well I thought about what I could do so I decided to go to Starbuck’s for till about 4 then go get something to eat and be sure and be home by 5. Being a nice day, I thought it would be nice to sit outside so I wanted to find a Starbuck’s that faces the west as I might be chilly if you are not in the sunshine so I decided to go to the Starbucks by Vancouver mall. I went to this one before and it also has no drive through so it can get busy. I got there a little after 2 but they had no outside tables so I went ahead and went inside. I got a table right in front of the window as they were busy but the biggest group was at the big long table, it seats 16 and there was only 1 open chair and it was filled with men that were probably all in their late 60’s or older. I guess this is where all the retired men come. I got my drink and sat down and started on this blog. Again, it was a steady stream of people coming in to get drinks but most left.

It was a little after 4 when I left to go get something to eat, now I wasn’t really hungry but I needed something. I stopped at Panda Express and got something to eat. I was right on time as I got home right at 5 so I had an hour to clean up. by the way I was ready to be done as I have worn my corset for 11 hours and although it is really pretty comfortable 11 hours is a long time. Tomorrow is Friday and I have most of the day to be Susan, some things I have to do in the morning but I am hoping to be able to go out by 10 or 11 as Susan. I am not sure what I will do but the big decision is my nails. I either have to get them removed tomorrow night or if I wait and do it on Saturday morning but would probably have to go as my male self. I have to be someplace at noon and it will take me almost an hour to get there and the nail salons don’t open till 10 so I would not have time to go as Susan and then get home and change before I go. In a way it does sound fun to go in as my male self and see what they think. Well I will make that decision tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what I am doing next.

Wednesday and a trip to the Oregon Coast

Okay it is Wednesday and I am going to the Oregon Coast with some friends. I did this a couple years ago by myself and had fun but this year I Texted Cassandra and she said she wanted to go and I also posted in our group and Michele said she would go with us and Dawnie and April said they would meet us there so we have 5 of us going. It should be a lot of fun. Now I was meeting Cassandra at her house at 11 and my plan was to go out early and do a little shopping and maybe stop at a Starbucks but as always I got a late start and didn’t leave my house till almost 10 so if there was traffic I would be pushing it to get to Cassandra by 11. Now I wore my shorter hair as it holds up better in the wind which you always have at the beach and my new grey sweater dress with black tights and tennis shoes and as I was going to be gone all day I did takes some foundation and my hair brush as we are going out to dinner tonight with our group at Mothers Bistro and I wont have time to come home so I will have to do a touchup at Cassandra’s house. By the way this first picture to the left is in the morning shortly after I left home and the one to the right is almost 12 hours later with really no touch up other than some powder, I think my makeup held up well. I love this lipstick as it looked as good at the end of the day as it did when I left. It is Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink in the color Ruler. Now I got over near Cassandra’s and still had about 20 minutes and one I forgot my lipstick which I wasn’t sure I would need but also, I noticed I was getting low on it this morning so I stopped at Fred Meyer’s to pick up more. Well they were out of this color so I went to the Target which is near by and they actually had it but I got the last one so I guess this is a pretty popular color. Now it was on to Cassandra’s house.

I got there just before 11 and Cassandra was ready so we just had to wait for Michele who got there a little after 11. It was about 11:30 when we got on the road, Cassandra drove and Michele and I got to ride like princesses. Funny as my male self I much prefer to drive but as Susan I like to be chauffeured. Now it is not that far but there was traffic so it took about 1 ½ hours to get there. Dawnie and April called me to see where we were and I told them we would get there about 1 and we decided to meet at Mo’s for lunch. We got there almost right on time just a couple minutes after 1, got to love Google Maps as it is pretty good at figuring the time to someplace. Dawnie and April had got there just before us and we actually parked almost right next to them. Now this is a smaller city on the coast so you really never know how people will react but none of us really cared we just walked in as if it was the most normal thing. They were a little busy with lunch but we got a nice table right in the corner looking out the big picture windows at the ocean, what a beautiful view for lunch. We all ordered lunch and of course I got their clam chowder. We had a wonderful lunch and great conversation. Above is Cassandra and me at Mo’s. after lunch we walked out on the peer to get some pictures. Now it was mid 50’s but sunny and if you were in the sun it was actually warm and the best part no wind. I don’t think I have ever been to the beech when there was no wind, it really was a beautiful day.

Now we all had to get pictures so I got a quick selfie and then we all took turns getting pictures of each other.

It was hard because of where the sun was so we were limited on the angles so we couldn’t really get one with the ocean behind us they were all angles with the coast line behind us. Now Dawnie and April had not got down here yet and Cassandra, Michele and I were all taking pictures of each other and a lady walked up and asked if we wanted her to take a picture of all of us and we said yes. So, she took several pictures of Cassandra, Michele and me. When she was done, she asked if we would take a few pictures of her and of course we said yes so Cassandra took her phone and got a bunch of pictures of her so she would have some. After that we talked with her briefly and she told us hoe pretty we all were and how our makeup looked awesome and she finished it with she had not done makeup in years. Of course, a lot of genetic woman can get by without makeup because they have such naturally beautiful skin and unfortunately that is not the case for us. This is the three of us.

Dawnie and April got down to where we were and so we took a bunch of pictures of them also. We probably spent 20 minutes or more taking pictures before we were done. We went back too the cars and Dawnie and April were going to head home but Cassandra, Michele and I drove down the cost a little looking for a place to get some more pictures. We had a beautiful day and we were at the coast someplace we don’t go often and we were not going to miss the opportunity.

We stopped at Boiler Bay State park I think to get more pictures. Now there were other people here and I had to wonder what they thought when they saw us get out of the car and go over to the edge to get more pictures, but we really didn’t care. We took turns getting pictures, I think Cassandra got the most. We were all having a wonderful time. And as I said the weather was perfect. We were only here for about 15 minutes before we left and our next stop was Chinook winds Casino.

We went in and looked around a little before we found the table games, Well Cassandra and me, Michele is more of a slot machine girl. There was an empty table so Cassandra and I sat down, it was only $5 which I like and well Cassandra just bet more and played 2 hands so she was happy. We played for a while and then it was tie for the dealer to shuffle and as there were 6 or 8 decks and he had to shuffle by hand Cassandra went to see how Michele was doing. Another man had sat down by this time so when the dealer had finished shuffling, we started playing even though Cassandra was not back yet. Soon it was tine for a new dealer so our male dealer left and a female dealer came in. finally Cassandra got back and started playing. Well we were not winning big but we were winning so we were happy but as in all things they changed and we started to lose more then we won. Of course, Cassandra playing 2 hands and betting more felt it first and finally she said she was done so she cashed in her chips and she was down $50 I played 1 more hand and lost so I cashed in as it was after 4 so we needed to get going. I actually finished up $50, I guess I got Cassandra’s money. We went and cashed in our chips and then headed for the exit. As we passed the table, we were playing I took a quick selfie to remember by big win well at least I left with more then I came in with. It would cover my lunch and dinner tonight and still leave me a little left over so it was a good day at the casino for me.

Now we have a 1 ½ hour trip back to Cassandra’s without traffic and a 40-minute drive to dinner without traffic and we have a little less than 3 hours before dinner so it will be close. The drive home was nice and we all talked and had a good time. We got back to Cassandra’s house a little before 6 we all went in and freshened up, I was amazed my makeup still looked good and as I said above all I really did was put on a little powder and then we were all of to dinner in our own cars. I got to Mothers Bistro about 6:45 but I took me a while to find a parking spot so it was just before 7 when I walked in and most of the girls were there.

We had a good turnout tonight, Rickie, Judy, Melissa, April, Ellie, Patty, Kelly, Jenifer, Barb, and of course Michele, Cassandra and me, 12 in all tonight. We all ordered and tonight they had their special Chicken Parmesan so that is what I ordered. Now our waitress tonight was Anna and she was awesome. I was talking with Patty, Kelly and Ellie about my lipstick and showed it to them as I had the one, I bought today in my purse. Well Anna our waitress over heard and said she loved it to and that was what she was wearing. It is funny as a lot of woman don’t wear lipstick but it looks so good on ladies. We had a wonderful dinner and great conversation.

After dinner as we were all leaving Jennifer still hadn’t paid her bill so I sat with her while she waited and we talked. It was nice to talk with her one on one. She is newer to dressing and going out and still trying to figure out what it all means and how it fits in her life. She asked me if I could would I go full time, now there is a difference between full time and transitioning as there are girls that live full time but have not had any surgeries. Now I have though about this a lot. I have no desire to transition but I do love being Susan. so, this is how I explained how I feel about this. If I won $100 million in the lottery tomorrow. I would spend a lot more time as Susan, probably not full time but the majority of time. I would have pretty acrylic nails for sure at least most of the time. I might even try to grow my hair out. But that would be it. I would still need my male side even if only part time. I just can’t get rid of all of my male side it is a part of me and who I am. I would not be a complete person without both. It was sad to see the day come to an end but it was almost 10 when we left so I have been out as Susan for 12 hours. It was a wonderful day with friends. Sorry this was a little long but it does cover a whole day 12 plus hours
