My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Thursday night trip to the nail salon

Okay first I did get out for a few hours last Sunday evening to Starbucks to study. I spent about 3 hours at the Starbucks by my house, no computer just my books. Any way on to today. I have been going to the Nail salon on Fridays the last few times but this week I would not be able to get there till probably next Tuesday which was my plan as my nails still looked good. Well till Tuesday night. I seem to have hit my nails just right and broke off a piece of the acrylic. funny as I didn’t break the nail just some acrylic. I was able to fix with some OPI nail envy which is a nail strengthener and goes on a little thick. It kind of covered the sharp edges but just didn’t look right so I decided I needed to go get it fixed. I got home late about 4:30 and called Dream Nails to see if Anna could fit me in, she always manages as I really think most people just show up and don’t call for an appointment. Any way I had a 5:30 appointment so I had 1 hour to get ready and get there, only a couple minute drive so I would be.

I got there just before 5:30 and only had to wait a couple minutes for her to finish with someone else. I really do like my trips to the nail salon as it is so relaxing. Anna started on my nails and yes, she had to remove the acrylic on the nail I broke and redo it. She did a wonderful job as always. They were a little busy as there was a young girl sitting next to me just finishing up on her nails and 3 woman getting pedicures. Any way about 6:20 I once again had beautiful nails although shorter. Now I am already thinking about Diva Las Vegas which is coming up fast. 6 weeks from today I will once again be here at the nails salon to get my acrylic nails for the trip 11 days and yes, they will be longer and a pretty color.

After the nail salon I went across the street to Starbucks till 8 to work on my blog and do a little studding (very little). It is nice as I have been coming here so regular most of the workers know me by name and I am getting to know some of their names. I walked in and Alan the young man working tonight welcomed me by name and asked if I wanted my usual hot chocolate which I did. It really makes you feel welcome when this happens. I know it is all about customer service but it still feels good. It is funny as I never went to a Starbucks before the first time I did as Susan and even still I think I have only been there 3 or 4 times when I am not Susan, kind of my girl thing to do. But I like coming here so much last year I bought stock in Starbucks.

It was about 8 when I left and drove over to Burger King as I was hungry, I went through the drive through and then went home. Again, a funny side note about 15 to 20 years ago a big night out for me was to take a late-night drive, after 11pm and then if I could work up my courage a quick trip through burger kings drive through.

Not sure if I will make it out this weekend as I have family stuff to do but next week I am once again on vacation and hope to get out several times. I really can’t explain why I like going out as Susan but I do.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what I am up to on my most recent blog.

Friday getting my nails done

It is Friday and I am ready for the weekend and yes first thing is a trip to the nail salon to get my nails done. Now they still look great and I probably could go a little longer but they are rather long now. My last trip to the nails salon two weeks ago I didn’t have them shortened as I was on vacation the next week. The last time I had them shortened was January 17th and even then they were left a little long for a man, so they have been growing out for a month.

Now at work this week no one said a thing and they had to notice as they were even long for most woman but I kept them without filing them down. I got home just before 4 and the first thing was to call the nails salon and see if I could get in, Anna said she could get me in at 5:30 so I had an hour in a half which was plenty of time as it only takes a couple minutes to get to Dream Nails. I have actually been coming here for almost 3 years although only the last two have been every 2 to 3 weeks and I love them. They do a wonderful job on my nails and always treat me wonderful. All the woman knows me by name even though I only know about half of them by name. What a great feeling to be a regular at the nail salon. I was ready a little after 5and I just figured I would go a little early and wait, I got there about 5:15 and Anna had just finished with a lady so I got right in. there is just something so relaxing and feminine to be at the nail salon, everyone should try it.

Anna asked how my nails were and if I had broken any as we keep the acrylic kind of thin and she remembered I didn’t have them shortened last time. They really did hold up well just one little chip on the corner of one that happened earlier today and it really wasn’t noticeable. She removed the old gel polish and got them ready for a fill. Now there were 3 other women in here 2 getting pedicures and 1 getting her nails done. Once she had the acrylic on she shortened my nails to a good length, even for a man the would be okay except for the perfect shape and of course the slight pink color but by 2 weeks the length will be noticeable. Now it was time for the gel polish and of course I stayed with the same color, Wedding dress. Anna put 2 coats on and finished it off with a clear coat. As she put the clear coat on I wondered how they would look if I had a 3rd coat of the wedding dress color put on, I am guessing just a little pinker. It was just before 6 when I was all finished with my pretty hands.

Now what to do, I had time so I decided to go to Sweet Home as it has been a while since I have made it there. I got there just before 6:30 and had to park way up the street, I think this is the farthest I have parked from here. I figured they were busy, I walked down and went in and there were only about 10 people here so I don’t know where all the cars on the street came from. Chris was there so I joined him. It was good to see him again. Now it is always a good feeling to go someplace you are welcomed and remembered. All the staff remembered me by name and even some of the customers which was nice, several of the customers told me it was good to see me again and it has been to long which it has as I haven’t been here since November and only 2 or 3 times since last March. But it was wonderful to be back here.

I ordered dinner and of course had my computer out. I talked with Chris some and a few of the other customer, this really is a neighborhood bar where everyone is welcome. I had a wonderful dinner and a wonderful time. Chris left a little before 8 as he comes here right from work to play pool but I stayed for a while as I had my computer. It was about 9 when I paid my bill and called it a night. I was going to stay a little longer but I needed to stope and get gas and I have been going to Costco and they close the gas station at 9:30. I have found if you go just before closing they are not busy and you don’t have to wait in line. I joined Costco a couple months ago but it was a couple weeks ago I went there as Susan and went in and asked about getting a card for me as Susan and to my surprise they did without much question so I have a Susan Costco Card with Susan name and picture on it. It was as short night out but very fun. My next outing will be Saturday night when we go to Harvey’s Comedy Club. Julie Scoggins is there this weekend and she is wonderful, our group has gone and seen her every year she has come for the last 5 for 6 years, she is very funny and if you get a chance to see her you should. She has actually gone out with our group a few times after the shows although the place we use to go is now closed so that may not happen tonight.

Thanks for reading and being a part of my life. If you want to know what new in Susan’s life be sure and read my most recent blog.

Have a great night.

Manicure and then out to Sweet home

It is Friday and I am looking forward to a fun night. It has been a long day but I still need to get a manicure and as long as I am out I will be off to Sweet Home. I called Dream Nails at about 4:15 to see if I could get in at 5:30 and that was fine so I had an hour to get ready. Now I really love taking my time getting ready usually an hour and a half but when needed I can get ready in 45 minutes if needed.

I was all ready by a little after 5 so I had a little time before I needed to leave for the nail salon. I got there about 5:20 and Anna was ready for me. Now they were a lot busier then the last time I was here. there were 4 woman and a man getting pedicures and one getting her nails done. I really do love going to the nail salon as it is such a relaxing fun time.

Anna worked on my nails and did a wonderful job, this time she didn’t even ask me if I wanted my nails trimmed back she just filed them down a little and evened them out. They look beautiful and just a little on the long side for my male side. I will have to file them down some in a few days. It was about 6 pm when I was done and left the salon with my beautiful nails. They would look so much better with a red though.

I got to Sweet Home a little after 6, Robyn and Chris were already there. I little later Roxy showed up so there were 4 of us tonight. We had a nice time although I was really getting tired now as I have been up since 3 am today. It was a little before 10 when I called it a night. It was a fun evening out.

I will be out again Saturday night as our group is having a celebration of life for Cristine who passed away a little over a week ago.

Manicure and pedicure and a little Starbucks time.

It has been 2 weeks since my last manicure and I really wanted to go get a manicure and pedicure tonight. A chance to be out as Susan for a little while. This is always such a fun and relaxing experience that woman get to enjoy. I got home at 3 and was going to call and make an appointment but figured I would take my shower and do some of the prep work first. I got out of the shower and shaved and was ready to start my makeup by 3:20. I called Dream nails to see if I could get in, Annie answered the phone and new who I was so I guess she has my number stored in her phone system. She asked what time I wanted to come in and I was planning on 4:30 which gave me an hour to finish getting ready but for some reason I said 5 so she said she would see me at 5. Now it was time to enjoy the time getting ready and doing my makeup.

It was 4:15 when I finished my makeup so I was way ahead of schedule. I was getting ready to start getting dressed when the phone rang so I answered it and ended up talking to my parents for about 15 minutes. I no more than hung up and my brother called, wow I am popular today. Any way I talked to him for about 15 minutes all the time wondering what they would think if they knew how I looked as I was talking to them. full makeup and wearing a bra and panties. I got off the phone with him and looked at the clock and it was 4:45. I had 15 minutes to get dressed and hair on, pack up my computer and get to the nail salon. Luckily it is close as it was 4:56 when I pulled out of my garage.

I walked into the nail salon right at 5 and Annie was waiting for me so it was right to the table. She filed off the top of the gel polish and then put the remover on them and the little clamps t hold them on and then took me over to start my pedicure. I sat and soaked my feet as she finished up another lady. It was about 15 minutes before she came over to do my pedicure. Now I have never sat with those clamps on my fingers that long but it is amazing how often you want to brush hair off your face or do something else with your hands when you can’t.

Annie asked me what color I wanted for my toes and as I got here right at 5 I didn’t have time to pick out a color so I told her something red and she said she had a red she really liked and went and got it. It is a deep darkish red with a little bit of shimmer or sparkle to it and looked pretty so I said it was fine. this is the first time I have let someone else pick out the color and it really is a pretty color. Now I really do love getting a manicure and pedicure as it is so relaxing, a wonderful way to treat yourself. The soaking, leg massage, lotion and oil, hot stone rub my legs never look or feel better then after a pedicure and they stay that way for a couple days, silky soft skin. She got done and put the color on my toes and it was beautiful, so wish I could get it on my fingers also.

now it was time for the manicure so we went over to the table and she scraped the gel polish off, trimmed the cuticle and evened out the nails. I filed them down at home before I came to get the length I wanted. that way all Annie had to do was shape them which she did. Next was the polish and I got the same gel polish I did last time as I really like it. it is a clear polish with just a hint of rosy pink. well it depends on the light as to how rosy pink it is. in certain light it just looks clear but in others you can defiantly see the rosy pinkish color. Now I have been coming here to Dream Nails for over two years, my first visit was 9/18/2014, yes I looked it up in my blog, although the first year was not that often but the last year starting last January I have come here to get my nails done every 2 to 3 weeks and I love it. I would encourage everyone, male or female to do this at least once and see how you like it. I am sure you will do it again.

It was 6:30 when I was all finished and I once again had pretty toes and fingers. Now I didn’t want to go home yet one of the reasons I brought my computer so I drove across the street to Starbuck. Now as I said before I am getting more comfortable as Susan. A few years ago I would never have gone to a Starbucks so close to my house as a matter of fact the Starbucks I did go to was about 12 miles away. This one is less than a half mile and is the closest to my house. They weren’t busy maybe 5 other people inside so I had my choice of tables. I ordered a Hot Chocolate and a cheese Danish and got out my computer. I spent a little time catching up on some e-mails and work before turning to more important things. Updating my blog.

This week I will make it out 3 times, tonight of course, tomorrow night for dinner with my friends. We are doing our Christmas dinner and Cassandra set up the reservations. I know we have 10 but we have room for 16 so I am hoping more come out. Cassandra set it up and made all the reservations, Thanks Cassandra. I also plan on being out Friday night also. I have to work early on Sunday so I will not be able to go out and Celebrate New Years with my friend which is sad. They are going to Harvey’s Comedy Club for New Years. I may see if they are meeting at Fox & Hounds first and if so maybe I might go have dinner there with them before the show and then go home when they head for Harvey’s.

Tomorrow night at Dinner Cassandra and I are going to talk about Diva Las Vegas and set our plans. Veronica is thinking of going but wants to know whet we are doing and also Julie will be there and I think / hope she is going so we should be able to have it all worked out soon. It will be good to see Julie again as it has been a while as the Holidays always make it harder to get time to go out.

Now I have been sitting here at Starbucks and not paying attention to the time and it is now a little after 8 and they are closed. The young man had to come remind me, wow I guess time flies when Susan is having fun. I left Starbucks and headed for home. wow my feet are cold wearing flip flops. I don’t know how girls wear them in the winter when it is cold out. It only took a couple minutes to get home so I am finishing my blog at home. I am not going to put the matte polish on my nails because I want to show them off to Julie tomorrow night. It should be interesting as the last time I did go to work for several days with shinny nails but tomorrow will be busy and I will have a lot more interaction with co-workers.

Well thanks for reading and I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and have a safe and Happy New Years this weekend.

One last thing as today Carrie Fisher pasted away, she was best know as Princes Leia in Star Wars one of my favorite movies. She will be missed and my thoughts and prays go out to her family. So sad.
