Susanmillers Blog

My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

A manicure and finally just a little Susan time.

Okay my Susan time has been very limited since I returned from Diva Las Vegas. Dealing with family health issues, for those who follow my blog my Mom is all better but now it is my Dad so it looks like it will be even longer till I get back to where Susan can get out on a regular basis. So, I thought I would give a few highlights of what is going on for Susan.

Probably the most exciting thing is our group the Rose City T-girls are planning a 7-day Mexican in October of 2018, there will be all the information about this at the end of the blog so be sure to read it all. Cassandra did set up a group for it that is open to all https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/mexicanrivieracruisetgirls/info . I know for sure we have 8 of us who have booked rooms already, I picked a deluxe balcony room, the other have booked either mini suits or suits. Here is the cruise if you want information about it. https://www.princess.com/find/cruiseDetails.do?voyageCode=9834N . This will be a lot of fun and I would encourage you to think about going.

Well back to my blog, I did manage to get out two weeks ago just long enough to get my nails done, that is the one thing I have managed to do. But today being a holiday, I had the morning free and so I was going to get my nails done and spend a little time as Susan. I called Dream nails on Sunday afternoon to make sure they would be open and they were so I set up an appointment for 9 am, Anna is still on vacation so not sure who will do my nails.

I got up Monday morning and started getting ready at 7:30, wow took longer than normal I guess not dressing much lately I am a little slower. It was 8:55 when I finished and was ready to leave, luckily the nails salon is only a couple minutes away. I got there right at 9 just as they were opening. Now as I said I wasn’t sure who my appointment was with and the guy asked me if it was with Kathy and I just said yes so, I waited a little as I looked at the different nail colors. Now the last few times I have gotten clear pink (441) just above my thumb but I really wanted to try another polish something just a little more. I debated between first kiss (top right and Sweet Romance (452 just below it). I held them to my fingers and decided Sweet Romance looked pretty neutral to my nails but still not brave enough to just go for it. One of the men there asked if I wanted to keep waiting or if I wanted him to do my nails. I said that was fine so he took me over to the table and asked what color I wanted. I told him the clear pink but I wanted to try the Sweet Romance on just my pinky to see how it looked. And he said that was fine.

He started on my nails, ground off the old gel polish and just a little of the acrylic, shortened them a little and then started the fill. It is still amazing I have had acrylic on my nails since I left for Diva Las Vegas back in March although it is a thin layer and not real noticeable. He did a really wonderful job, I must say I have always been treated awesome here and always got a really wonderful job on my nails. I would highly recommend Dream Nails.

It took him about 30 minutes and now it was time for the gel polish. He put a base coat on first and then started with the gel polish on my right hand. Now I had said I wanted the Sweet Romance on my pinky and I had pointed to my left hand but evidently, he thought it was both pinkies as before I knew it he had put it on my right pinky so I just went with it, it had a slight pink color to it more then what it looked like on the nails color wheel but still okay. Soon it was time for the second coat on my nails. Now I tried not to really look at it while he was doing them as I wanted to be surprised at the end. Now came the top clear coat. My nails were all done and I got a good look at them, wow that is a light pink color a lot pinker then on the color wheel. I am not sure my mat polish will do anything for this color but dull the shine down. Here is a picture of my nails, notice the pinky, what do you think. It is a cute color but may be way to noticeable.

It was almost 10 when I was all done, the morning was starting off wonderful. I left the nail salon and decided to go to Walmart as I really want some sandals to wear so I can show my pretty toes off. I got there about 10:15 and went in and looked around. They had a closeout section and I found a pair that are women’s but are pretty plain and I could probably wear them as my male self and now one would think twice as they are just a light brown color, they are perfect and marked $25.99 bit on closeout shelf so I am hoping they are less. I got to the checkout and I was right, they were marked down to $9.00.

Well now it was getting close to 11 so I decided to go to the Starbucks by my house for a little while. I got there and they were really busy but most were sitting outside, there were only about 15 people inside and I could see some empty tables so I went in. The young man at the counter remembered me and said it had been a while which it has. He did ask me to remind him of my name which I did. It is amazing how well I have been treated when I have been out.

It was a wonderful day. I sat here at Starbucks for a couple hours catching up on e-mails and of course my blog. I really appreciate my time out as I am limited now. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day and I hope you can join us on our cruise. Here is all the information.

Saturday Manicure and Pedicure and then out with my friends.

Well it has been a long few months with limited Susan time so I must make the best of t when I get a chance. I had hoped to get out earlier just didn’t work. I got home about 3:30 and started getting ready right away. After my shower, I started my makeup and then thought I should probably call and see if I could get in so I called Dream Nails and they said I could come in so I told them I would be there by 4:45. I finished getting ready and was on my way. I actually got there closer to 4:30 and went in. Now I like it when I get pedicures as I can pick out really pretty colors, today was Pompeii Purple by OPI. I really love this color and it is such a pretty summer time color.

Now they were not busy so as Anna finished another ladies nails I went and got my Pedicure. A young girl named Nie did my pedicure and she did an awesome job, I would recommend her and all the nail techs here. We talked a little as she worked, it was really fun and relaxing. It is so wonderful to get a pedicure. Soon I had pretty toes again and of course I had to get a quick picture. Nails just look so much better with a pretty color on them, don’t care if you are male or female, they just look better.

Now it was time for my manicure, Anna started on my Now a couple were loose and a few you could see the fill lines in after all I do get a mostly clear color so Anna removed all the acrylics down to the natural nail. They looked kind of ruff after all I have had acrylic on them now for over 4 months now. She cleaned them up and put a fresh coat of acrylic on them. It was a wonderful experience. Now it was time for the polish. Anna started putting on my normal polish but the bottle was almost empty so she only got 1 coat of that polish so she put a second coat of clear pink the color I used to use. It is funny as when I went from this color to the one I had been using I thought it was just slightly pinker but going back the other way, my nails do look a lot more natural almost pale. I was sad she didn’t have enough of the other polish.

Now as she was doing my nails a lady came in who I have seen here several times before and even talked with on occasion, she had her daughter and also her granddaughter and grandson with her. She came over to talk with Anna and said hi to me and asked what color I was getting. I told her just the clear, she said I should try something with color and showed me the color she had picked out. It was a rose color and I so would have loved to get that on my finger nails. Well about that time her granddaughter and grandson came over with nail polish in hand. They were both getting pedicures. The boy had picked out a blue color, they were probably 7 or 8 years old. I also noticed the boy already had blue on his toes. None of them thought anything about this which I thought was wonderful, maybe in a few years it will be normal or at least accepted for boys or men to have painted nails. It was just about 6 when I was done and had my pretty nails.

It was getting later now and I decided to go straight to the Escape, I got there about 6:20 and went in. It was so wonderful to be here again, last time I was here was early April. Now normally tonight, the first Saturday of the month is Harvey’s Comedy Club but they shut down a couple weeks ago. This was really sad as we have been going there once a month for many years. Now I didn’t know all who were going to show up accept for Nicole and Cassandra but I hoped more would make it. Nicole showed up right after I got there and it was great to see her again. She only gets to town every couple months and I missed the last time. It was nice to get to talk with her again and catch up. Cassandra showed up not long after that. It was awesome to see my friends again and have a chance to hang out with them. Melissa, Page Kate and Kelly also showed up so we had a nice size group.

We talked for a while and we got on the topic of Diva Las Vegas and vacations and soon we were talking about Cruises. Now this would be a lot more expensive then what we have done as a group before but it would be so much fun. There seemed to be a lot of interest and we talked about who we thought would go and we think we can get at least 6 to 8 girls that would go and a few spouses. We kind of focused in on a 10-day Mexican cruise and it looks like we would be looking at about $1800 to $2500 per person which really is not that bad as I spend $1,000 to 1,500 on Diva Las Vegas if you add everything in, Hotel, Transportation, dining, golf and a few other things. The difference is the cruise you pay all at once upfront instead of a little here and a little there. Of course, Cruises are per person double occupancy so as a single I would need to find a roommate or my cost doubles. Now we would need to plan this well in advance as one we would need to give girls time to save up but also most cruises are booked till fall of 2018 so I am guessing it would be late next year or the following year. The idea right now is to see if we can get a core group of 8 to 10 that will commit and then see if we could block out maybe 20 staterooms and then post to other t-girls sights that we are going and if they are interested they could join us. I think that would be a blast. Any way if we can make this happen there will be more information in following blogs.

Now Kate a girl from Minnesota had contacted me she was in town this week so I told her we would be at the Escape so she also came out and joined us, yes, we had two different Kate’s here tonight. It was nice to meet her and get to talk with her. She is new to going out but you could not tell from how she presented herself. I really love meeting new people and Kate seems really nice. Hope she can come back to Portland again and visit.

Now the surprise of the night was Maya and Darla, they both showed up. It has been a couple years. It was awesome to see them again. Maya has been in the group longer then I have and I joined in the spring of 2008. It was wonderful to talk with them. Now I also saw a girl at the bar so I went and talked with her and invited her to join us, her name is Kearren and I even got her to join our group so she knows when and where we are going. I have talked with her before but it was nice to get a chance to really talk with her for a while.

Soon karaoke started and it get loud so a few of the girls left. I was torn as it was loud and hard to talk but I was out and as I have not had many chances the last few months to get out I was going to stay. Lori and another girl also showed up so we had a really good turnout tonight, at least 12. I did manage to get around and talk a little with everyone so it was a good night. It was about 11:30 when I paid my bill and called it a night. It was a wonderful night and just what I needed.

Manicure for the 4th of July.

Today is July 4th Americas Independence Day, the day we celebrate our country and I am proud to be an American. What better way to start the day off then going to the nail salon and getting a much-needed fill and manicure. Now I got up at 8 and started getting ready. Now I only had till noon today so it would be another short outing for Susan. I was ready by 9:30. As I was getting ready to leave I thought to myself, I wonder if they are open today, a Holiday so I called Dream Nails and they were. I asked if I could come in and get my nails done and they said yes but Anna the lady who always does my nails was not coming in till later in the day. Now I really needed to get my nails done so I told them I would be there in a few minutes.

I got there and sat down at the table to get my nails don, Now I think a couple times I have had one of the other ladies do my nails. Today one of the men who works here was going to do my nails. Now I will admit I wondered about a man doing my nails but then I thought I am transgender and I feel that should be normal so why not a man doing my nails. Well he started on my nails and he did an awesome job. My nails looked wonderful. It took about 30 minutes and it was wonderful. The staff here at Dream Nails is wonderful and they do a wonderful job.

I left and drove to Starbuck’s as I still had a little over an hour and I needed to do my blog from Saturday when I went to Harvey’s and catch up on some e-mails. It was good to be back at Starbuck’s again. It was a nice morning out but went by way to fast. At noon, I went home and quickly showered and removed all traces of Susan except for my nails. Now I had some family things to do with my parents for a couple hours but I decided to risk it and leave my nails shinny for the day. I really wish I could just have my nails this way all the time. I did the stuff with my family and did my best to keep my nails hid, I don’t think they noticed. Now the reason I did this was simple, I was going to a BBQ at Julie’s with her, Trixie, Cassandra and Peggy at 4 and then we were going down to watch the fireworks and I wanted pretty nails for that. Now I don’t normally post in my blog about my male side of life but this is kind of a blurring of the two sides of my life. Yes, I would spend the rest of the day with Julie and Cassandra but we will not be our female selves, we will be in male mode. Not as much fun as being female but still an awesome day.

I got to Julie’s a little before 4 and shortly after Cassandra and Peggy showed up. We had a wonderful time talking and snacking before Julie BBQ steaks. It was a wonderful time and yes, we were still calling each other by our female names. The food was wonderful and Trixie did an awesome job also. We sat around talking till about 8 when we left for the fireworks. We had a wonderful time watching the fireworks and just a wonderful night out with friends. A few years ago, I would never of thought of even telling people I met as Susan anything about my male side much less get together with them this way. But these are more than just friends they are more like family. I have met many wonderful people as Susan and I hope they all know how much of an impact on my life and how much they mean to me. Our Rose City T-girl are wonderful. Thanks Julie and Trixie for the BBQ and wonderful night. On a side note Julie, Cassandra and Peggy have met me as my male self before but this was the first time Trixie has seen me this way which is always fun

It was a wonderful day and I hope everyone had a happy and safe fourth of July.

Thanks for reading

Short notice but a chance for a manicure and pedicure.

Well a lot going on in my life and my free time and Susan time is very limited. Now I have worked it out for next weekend to go to the Red Dress Party with Julie and Trixie so I am excited about that. My plan was to get my nails done next weekend but that would mean going 3 weeks between trips to the nail salon which I thought I could do, that is till I was getting dressed this morning and broke 2 of the corners of my nails off well the acrylic off the top. Now I had my doubt I could make it till next weekend as my nails underneath are thin and week. I wasn’t sure what I could do as I had family things today, my mom is in rehab and my dad doesn’t drive anymore so that was going to be my day. Any way a couple of my parent’s friends called and were coming to see them and as there is limited room I figured it was a chance to get my nails done. It would be another quick outing but better than nothing.

I called Dream nails about 11 to see if I could get in at 12:30 and I could. As one of my parent’s friends had arrived I left and was on my way out with only a slight delay. On my way, out I ran into someone and talked to them for a short while which put me a little behind. Wow I so want to include this in my blog as it is a really funny story but as it mostly deals with my male life I just can’t but you would dye laughing. It was 11:30 when I got home so I had to rush and get ready. I got to the salon just before my appointment as it is only a couple minute drive. There was only 1 lady there getting a pedicure so I didn’t have to wait.

It was so nice to get a pedicure again as it has been a while. It wasn’t long and another woman came in and then a man and a woman. They were getting busy. I guess I picked the right time. I really enjoyed my pedicure although the lady doing it was very gentle when she massaged my legs, but it still felt good and she did a wonderful job. She was just getting ready to paint my toes when 3 women came in turns out the 2 girls brought their mom in for a manicure and pedicure for an early Mother’s Day girls day out. They were seated at the far end and I was in the first seat. Wow this is too funny and I wish I could share, well a little bit won’t hurt. I know one of the woman. Something I have worried about for a long time, wondering if I would run into someone I know here, although she doesn’t live in the area just a chance meeting. She was busy with her sister and mom so didn’t pay any attention to anything around them after all it was all about their mom.

Now it was time for my manicure or rather my fill, yes, I am still wearing a thin layer of acrylic on my nails. I sat at the front table and Anna started working on my nails. Now I could see the 3 of them in the back and it was funny as they had one of the nail techs take a picture of the 3 of them. There were caught up in their own world down there so I relaxed a little and enjoyed my experience. Anna ground some of the old acrylic off and shortened my nails, wow I had let them get a little long. Then she shaped them and put on the new layer of acrylic. It was a relaxing time. Now it was time for polish but first I had to go wash my hands, I forgot about this part. The sink is in the back of the shop where the 3 women were one I know. She was actually in the far back chair almost right next to the sink but this also meant she was twisted towards her mom to talk and not looking at the sink. As I walked back I was looking at the TV on the opposite wall so I could keep my head turned away from them. I washed my hands and walked back to the manicure table and sat down and looked back at them and they were still talking between themselves and of course all attention was on their mom so I am sure they didn’t even notice me.

Anna put the gel polish on my nails my same polish I get pretty much every time, clear with just a slight rose color. My nails look wonderful and next week I am thinking of trying Julie’s trick and putting red polish over the top for the night. That is one of the reasons I wanted to wait for next Saturday as I could have had it all done at the nail salon. Soon my nails were done and beautiful again and I was ready to leave. I got up to pay and was standing by the counter as the three in the back were finishing up on their pedicures and would be moving to a manicure table to get their finger nails done. But it was okay as I was on my way out now.

I left and still had about 45 minutes so I made a quick trip across the street to Starbucks for about a half hour to write my blog and let my toe nails finish drying before heading home and going back to my male self probably till next Saturday. In all it was a quick trip out as I was on my way home by 2:30.

Thanks for reading.

A quick trip out for a manicure

It has been a while since I have been able to get out and the next month or two will be hard to get out, Family health issues. The last time I was out was for Wednesday night dinner with my friends on April 12th and I didn’t even get a chance to blog about it as the next day things got busy so I will include a little about that night in today’s blog at the end and of course a few pictures from that night. This is Julie and me at dinner. Anyway, back to today.

I really needed a manicure as the last one was on April 4th when I got back from Diva Las Vegas and I decided to keep the acrylic on my nails although a thin layer so it is not real noticeable. Any way it had grown out and I had actually had to file my nails shorter twice over the 3 ½ weeks it has been. I didn’t know when I was going to get a chance to get them done and then luck happened today and I had a few hours, well 3 hours open as my parents had some friends up to see my mom who is having the health issues so I took the opportunity to squeeze in a short Susan day and get my nails done. It would be a rush though. It was noon when I called to see if I could get in at 1 to get my nails done and Anna said that was fine so I had to rush getting ready. I think this was one of my fastest times getting ready as I was at the nails salon by 12:50, only a couple minutes from where I live. Anna greeted me and said it had been a while and I had to admit it has been, they said they missed me which made me feel good.

They were not busy so Anna was ready for me so I didn’t have to wait. I guess having the first nice weekend of the year people had other things to do then get their nails done. Now I have had Acrylic nails many times over the years but never long enough to get a fill which is what I will get today so it will be interesting to experience that. Now in some ways it is quicker as Anna didn’t have to soak the gel polish off she just ground it off as she also needed to take off some of the acrylic and get it ready for the overlay of acrylic. Now there was one other lady here getting a pedicure but soon people started to come in I guess I timed it right. Even a couple came in to get pedicures and the man had on a dark brownish polish on his toes, they had matching colors. His wife wanted to get pink today and although I wasn’t there long enough to see if he got the same color he did say it was her choice and that pink was the new black so I am guessing he will leave with pink toenails.

Anna did an excellent job on my nails and I had her file them back a little but they still look awesome, really wish I could have red on them. Now she asked me about a pedicure and I really wanted one but I am taking a break from them for a bit, yes, my toes have not had polish on them for 3 ½ weeks now so boring and ugly they look. This is the most days I have gone without polish on them for probably 12 years which is the reason why. I always chose a red or dark color and it turns out toe nails grow so slow it is not good to keep them covered with dark colors for that long. Makes your nails unhealthy and in my case one of them kind of broke apart and I lost half of it. I hope to be able to get a pedicure next time I got to the nail salon and I will have to put some lighter colors on them every occasionally. It took Anna about 40 minutes to do my nails so it was about 1:30 when I left with my pretty nails. Now I had my computer in the car and I wanted to take full advantage of this quick outing so I went to the Starbucks by my house.

They were not busy so I didn’t have to wait in line, again a couple of the girls here told me it had been a while since they had seen me and they missed me. It is nice to feel welcomed. I ordered a drink and a snack and sat down to do my blog really quick. I still need time to get home and change back to my male self before being over where my mom is by 3. I think this will be my shortest time as Susan, from boy to girl and back again in 3 hours but it is worth it as I am not sure when or how much I will get to be Susan for a while.

The Starbucks is actually busy but most come in and get a drink and leave, but there is maybe 8 other people here at tables now. It is a fun place to go for a few hours and do work and people watch. Well it is now 2:10 and I need to get home and clean up and wash all traces of Susan away so I will sign off here. There will not be a lot of blogs or Susan time over the next month or two. I will be spending a lot of time helping my parents

Thanks for reading.

A challenging start to my trip but I got my acrylic nails

It is Thursday afternoon and I am on vacation for the next 12 days and will be Susan 24/7 while at Diva Las Vegas. I was so excited and rushed home to change and start my time as Susan and that is when I ran into the first challenge of my trip. As I pulled into my drive and opened my garage or should I say try to open it and didn’t work. Turns out I have a broken spring so my garage door opener wouldn’t work so I would have to park outside which would mean walking out the front door in the middle of the afternoon to my car. Now I always try to find the bright side of things so as I was getting ready I was thinking how bad this was when I realized it could have been worse. It could have broken when my car was in the garage and then when I was Susan I could have gone to leave and not been able to get the door opened.

I put most of my stuff in the trunk with the exception of what I was wearing and of course my makeup supplies. I got all dressed and looked out the window and just saw one neighbor a couple houses up working in her yard so I grabbed my stuff and walked out the door and got in as quick as I could, it was only 3:30 but I decided to go to the nail salon and see if maybe she could start a little early. I got there and they had 4 pedicures going including one man who was there with his girlfriend and her friend, it was her birthday and this was her birthday present. Of course he was getting a clear coat on his toes. Well I had to wait till 4, but that was okay.

Anna got done and started on my nails. It is so relaxing to get your nails done and I so love getting acrylic nails. They just look so beautiful and I really would love to keep my nails long and pretty, it really is one thing I would do as Susan all the time if I could. It took Anna about 50 minutes to do my nails and they are. I sat and let my nails dry and for the first time I got out of the salon and into my car without messing up my nails.

I was on my way to Cassandra and Peggy’s for dinner and then I would spend the night there so we could leave at 4 am in the morning which would mean I would be up at 3 as I would need an hour to get ready. It took a little over an hour to get there. Cassandra in male mode of course helped me unload my car and we packed it all in her Peggy’s vehicle as that is what we are driving to Las Vegas Friday morning.

Cristine and Bobby were also there as they are watching their house while we are gone. Then we had relaxing dinner and talked for a while. We are all excited about going, I just know Cassandra, Peggy and I are going to have a wonderful time. It was a little after 9 when we went to bed so it would be another short night for me. Tomorrow will be my first full day Susan.

Vacation to Diva Las Vegas comes to an end.

Well it is Monday morning and I got up a little early as I needed to be at my nail appointment by 10 am, I made an appointment at the same nail salon that I used last year to have my nails removed as they did such a great job and anyone who has had acrylic nails removed knows the importance of having them removed properly. The salon is Glamorous nails on Farmington rd. I drove over early as I didn’t want to get caught in traffic with the morning rush hour traffic plus I wanted just a little more Susan time.

I found a Starbuck’s in Beaverton about 3 miles from the salon and went in to get something warm to drink and an apple fritter for Breakfast. This Starbuck’s is bigger than the one I go to normally and a lot busier as I had to stand in line to be waited on. Now it is also possible that being the morning is just a busier time then in the evenings when I normally go but either way lots of people. I spent about an hour and a half there catching up on e-mails, not Susan’s as I checked hers all the time on the trip. These were my male e-mails which I have not looked at since I left on my trip as I really did put my male side behind me for the whole time I was gone it was just Susan.

I got to the nail salon just before 10 as that is when they open and my appointment was. I was amazed at how busy they were for a Monday Morning, it was a good thing I had an appointment. There were two ladies there getting their nails done, one guy getting a pedicure and then two ladies came in without appointments and wanted manicures and pedicures. They had 4 nail techs there so I guess they are doing okay.

It took about an hour for her to remove my nails and give me a manicure. I of course went with clear when they asked me what color I wanted even though I would have loved to get red again but that would not work for me in male mode. The clear coat they put on is a hardener and very very glossy. On the drive home as the sun hit my nails I noticed just how shiny they are, wow I will have to take this off before work as it is very noticeable, so I will have to find a clear coat that is a little less shiny. My nails look so short and plain now compared to how they were.

Now I am at home and updating my blog. It is so different typing without my nails, seems I had gotten use to them and now I am having a little trouble typing but I guess in a day or two I will once again be use to short nails. Well I need to go take a shower and make sure all traces of Susan are washed away before I got to work. I know my male clothes will feel strange especially my shoes as they are so much heavier than any of the shoes Susan has. All things I will have to get use to again.

Well it will be back to my short outings for an evening here and there till next year when I will once again go to Diva Las Vegas as I am already looking forward to it. Thanks for reading.

I have posted all my pictures from Diva Las Vegas on both my Facebook page and my Yahoo Profile page if you would like to check them out.

Ready for Diva Las Vegas

Well I am all ready, I made it to my nail appointment in plenty of time and the salon I go to was really busy and I had to wait about 10 Minutes. I have been going to this salon (Nails by Lily) sense 2003 and always been treated great. The first time I made an appointment there I was caught off guard when she asked for my name I started to give my name and then panicked and it came out Mike and so that is the name I have used every time I go there as a matter of fact when I called to set up an appointment she knew who I was as soon as I said I wanted an appointment to get acrylic nails.

Out of all the times I have gone there I have never had the owner (Lily) do my nails but tonight she did. It was so nice, Lily and I talked most of the time she worked on my nails. We talked about my trip to Las Vegas and all about her family, and even some about my family. It was so enjoyable. She even told me she was happy I came in. If you are looking for a place in Vancouver Washington to get your nails done please check out Nails by Lily on SE Mill Plain.

I now have beautiful long nails for my trip, they did not have the color I painted my toes so I went with I think it is called an affair in red square but it could also be Rhine Rhine red as I had both bottle in my hand. They look beautiful though.

Now I am at Starbuck’s the night before I leave on my trip. Melissa came out to see me before I leave and to see my nails. They are actually pretty busy here tonight so lots of people watching. It is so nice to be out and I will be Susan from now till I get back. The trip will be fun and I really am not worried too much about it except for my time in Reno and checking into the hotel as Susan. The good thing is I have a 9 hour drive so when I get up and get dressed as Susan I will not be thinking about checking in as that might make me rethink it. By the time I get there it will be too late to change my mind. Well must go now but I hope to post every day. Have a great week and thanks for reading.

Tuesday of Diva Las Vegas golf tournament

Well we all got up early Tuesday morning at 5:30 (Cassandra was up earlier) to get ready for the Diva Las Vegas golf tournament at Desert Rose Golf course. I was so excited as I finally get to wear my cute golf outfit I bought, a White skirt with a purple top. I look so cute in it with my white and pink shoes. We got to the course at 7:30 and checked in. we didn’t tee off till 9 am so we drove back down the street to a Starbucks to get something to get us going as we did not eat breakfast. When we got back to the course most of the other girls were there and we went over to the putting green to practice. From there we went to the driving range to hit a bucket of balls. We all looked so cute.

Now I have told everyone it was not how good I would play but how cute I looked on the course. I soon discovered my beautiful Acrylic nails were little long for golf. They made it really hard to get a good grip and if I didn’t get a good grip all the way through it felt like I was ripping them off. This was going to be harder than I thought.

Cassandra and I were paired with two other girls and in the last group, we had 16 girls (4 were wives that played) and Peggy had her own golf cart and was the official photographer of the tournament so she was driving all around taking pictures. Not sure but I think she said she had over 400 pictures.

We finally teed off and we were having the time of our lives. Cassandra and I have talked about playing golf (as Susan and Cass) so many times and now we were. After 4 holes I was only 3 over par (good for me) and was ahead of Cassandra. By the 5th hole the wind started to pick up. They had been forecasting strong winds (30-45 MPH) by the afternoon but it looked like it was coming in early. You cannot imagine what that kind of wind can do to ones hair. It really made it hard to look cute (I don’t like hats so my hair was a mess). I tried to swing a little harder because of the wind but with my nails I couldn’t grip the club tight enough and my ball started going all over the place. Soon Cassandra caught and passed me and I never had the lead again. A few times I thought I was going to rip off a nail but luckily never did as I would have cried all the way to the nail salon to have them fixed. If I do this again I will definitely still have my nails and just hit the ball softer and realize this girl won’t win any tournaments. I refuse to give up my nails. By the 7th hole my hairs was so windblown I looked horrible except for my cute golf outfit.

Cassandra ended up beating me (she took her nails off) but that is okay. Cassandra is working on a YouTube video of the golf tournament so I was her camera girl. She hopes to have it up in a couple weeks so you will have you look for it. It should be really cute. She can play to the camera so well. At the end we all went in the club house for lunch and prizes. It was so fun and I met so many get t-girls.

This was an awesome group and the people of the Desert Rose golf course were so great and treated us outstanding, if you ever want to golf in Las Vegas I would recommend this course. Now we are back at the hotel getting cleaned up for a night out. 6 hours in the sun and wind Susan needs a fresh face and her hair redone.

I will be Adding pictures to my Windows Live Profile.

Famous hands, see my acrylic nails on a beauty blog

Well just a quick post tonight. A while back I was surfing the internet and did a search for acrylic nails and found a couple pictures of my hands when I had acrylic nails. One stood out as it was not from my web page so I clicked the link and wound up on a beauty blog. They had an article on acrylic nails and they used one of my pictures. They even gave me credit for the photo and if you click on it, it links back to my picture on my flickr page (I guess that is why this one picture of my acrylic nails have gotten so many hits. My hands are famous (Susan the hand model). I thought this was pretty cool.

What makes it even better is this is not a t-girl blog it is a mainstream beauty blog, not sure if they knew I was a t-girl before they used it or not but either way they did. You can check out their blog (and my picture) at http://www.beauty-blogs.com/uncategorized/care-acrylic-nails/
