My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Out with friends on Friday night

Today I registered for Diva Las Vegas which this year is March 30 through April 4 (Sunday through Friday), this will be my 4th time going and it is so much fun. You really should check out their web page DLV. What make this one so fun is it is more of a vacation. They have activities you can sign up for, Dinner, Shows, Golfing and so on and all you do is pay your way to the event, no fees. It is not centered in one hotel you are free to stay and lace although they do have 3 recommended hotel and the events are all over town so it is a great opportunity to get out and mingle with people. We already he 7 from our group the Rose City T-girls that have registered and maybe 7 more that are thinking about going. I am really excited because this means I will get to get my nails done again, yes I will have acrylic nails for the whole week. I can’t wait!

Well it is Friday night and time for Susan to go out and have some fun. I so ok forward to the weekend and spending Friday night with my friends. It is such a relaxing time for me, it is amazing how just getting ready as Susan much less the time I spend as Susan can have such a calming effect on my life. I started getting ready at 5 tonight and enjoyed every moment. I know some women hate doing makeup and hair but then they have done it all their lives where I have done it a couple times a week for the last several years and before that it was a few times a year so for me the fun has not gone away. I guess in that respect I am like a teenage girl experimenting with makeup.

I was already to leave by 6:40 and again tonight I just opened the garage door and walked out to my car instead of getting into my car with the door shut. Now they were forecasting heavy rain tonight and tomorrow so I was really glad when I got there and found a parking spot close and it wasn’t raining. Cassandra, Chris and Laura were already there and Jodie was working the bar. Jodie is really awesome and we all love her the only bad part is she only works till about 8 when Paul the owner takes over who is also awesome but it would be great to have Jodie here more. I ordered dinner and talked with the girls, it was starting off as a great night.

Cassandra was on her computer again and in her favorite chat room, she turned her computer a little so I could also be on web cam with her while she talked. Chis also had his computer and was watching YouTube videos. They both get here early and play on their computers like I do when I go to Starbuck’s.

Others started to show up, Silver, Roxy, Bobby, Cristine and Petra so we did have a smaller group tonight but maybe because of the threat of heavy rain and wind. I talked with Cassandra about Diva Las Vegas and she is also registered along with Petra and Cristine and I know Veronica, Melissa and Julie are also going and Mikaela and Brenda are thinking about it plus a few more. It will be so much fun as we all had such a fun time last year. It is only a little over two months away, just seems impossible that it has been almost a year since I last went. I first went in 2010 with Cassandra and Peggy and then again in 2011 by myself you can read about them in my blog and then also in 2013 and we had about 12 of us from Portland that year. I can’t wait as I will live as Susan for the whole time just as I have done in the past. Well Petra Cassandra and I talked about maybe going golfing a few more time this year while we are at Diva Las Vegas which would be fun.

The bar got busier but I think the weather may have kept others away also. One of the ladies at the bar named Valerie told me how nice I looked and I ended up talking with her for a while, think this is one of the great things about going out to mainstream places as it gives us a good chance to interact with people and they can get to know us better and see we really are no different other than the way we choose to dress, I think this helps break down any walls that people might have. Several of the Karaoke group were there and we talked with several of them, they really are a great group and have totally accepted us as part of the bar family.

Karaoke started and as the crowd was smaller tonight the rotation for singing went quicker so both Chris and Laura sand many times and did a great job. It really was a fun night and as always it went by so quick. It was after midnight when we left but it was such a fun night.

Okay one last pitch for Diva Las Vegas, it is so much fun and cost nothing to attend you just pay for what you want to do so check out their web page. Below is links to my blog for each year in order.

Day 9 of Diva Las Vegas back to LA

Well Diva Las Vegas is over for the year and nit seems to have gone by so fast this year. It is Saturday morning and we are getting ready for the trip back to LA, well actually Van Nuys California where the Oxwood is. Michelle is going with us as she will fly back to Portland from LA on Sunday. This means we have an extra person in the car plus more luggage. We all took our stuff to Cassandra’s room and called a bell hope up to get it and take it to the car and it actually took two as we had about 4 bags more than he could fit on his cart.

We got all our stuff downstairs and now we had to tie several of the bags on the roof reason we went and got the rope yesterday. Now Cassandra and Michelle were both in male mode but as I took no male cloths on this trip plus the fact I have long red acrylic nails I am Susan for the whole trip but I did help them tie the bags down which I found out is not as easy with long nails. The drive was nice and we got to our motel about 4:30 and Cassandra and Michelle had to transform from male to female which took awhile as for me and Cristine we just had to freshen up, change to a dress and heels and of course a red lipstick to go with my black dress. We were all ready and on our way by 6:30 so we were going to be really early as the Oxwood doesn’t get busy till 10.

We got there and I was hungry so Michelle and I walked across the street to a little restaurant that I can’t remember the name. Now I am sure this was a sight as I had on my little black dress and spiked heels as we walked across the street. We sat and ordered dinner and chatted for a bit. The staff was wonderful and always referred to us as ladies but then they are across the street from the best T-girl place in Southern California.

Michelle and I got back over to the Oxwood around 8 and they still weren’t that busy. They were setting up the little stages for the pole dancers. We joined Cassandra and Cristine at the bar for a while. A man sat next to me and I could feel him watching me so I just kept my attention towards Cassandra, Cristine and Michelle. A few more t-girls started coming in so we moved over to a table by the pool tables which I was glad as I still find it uncomfortable to attract male attention, just not my thing. I know dressing and acting lick a lady will attract male attention but it is really the only thing about being Susan that bothers me.

We all wanted to get some pictures and we thought what better place than on the pole dancing stage so all 4 of us went over and got several pictures. We even tried to swing on the bar and trust me it is not as easy as they make it look. A couple times I thought a was going over backwards. I even got a dollar tip; yes the man at the bar that had been watching me came over and gave a dollar. I will put most of these pictures at the end.

Well now that we all had our pictures it was time for pool. We put our names up and waited for our turn. You need to get on the board early as once they get busy they can have 20 to 30 different names waiting to play. My first game I played I did really well and was down to the 8 ball and missed an easy shot and the lady I was playing against didn’t but we had fun. So I put my name up again with about 15 people ahead of me so I knew that would be my last game as it was almost 11 and the bar was getting busy. It wasn’t quite as busy as last week but still 60 to80 t-girls there.

While we waited we talked and amongst ourselves and also with some of the t-girls from the LA area. It was a fun night and yes I had another guy come over and hit on me and I politely declined and told him I wasn’t interested and he was fine with that and moved on to another t-girl. Well it was almost midnight when it was my turn to play again and I was playing a guy who plays in tournaments so I really didn’t stand much of a chance. I had on ball left and he was on the 8 ball so my shot was always to leave him no shot in case I missed m ball and it worked as he tried to make a bank shot around my ball and scratched so I won. He was not really happy about it but not that he lost to me but rather that there were now over 20 names in front of him to play again so he may not get another chance to play before the night is over. Now I got to play again because I won and I did okay but still lost but having won against him made my night as it is always fun to win against someone who is way better then you are.

We stayed way later than I think any of us planned as we wanted to be on the road by 9 am and it was almost 2 am now and as you know Susan can’t just roll out of bed and be ready she needs time to look her best. I think I got to bed a little after 2 as it was not far back to our motel. We planned on getting up at 7 and while Cristine and I get ready and do our makeup Cassandra was going to take Michelle to the airport after all Michelle is flying home as her male self and that is also how Cassandra is traveling.

It is so hard to believe that I have been Susan nonstop now for 10 days; I guess time does fly when you are having fun. But as our trip comes to an end it is sad as I know on Tuesday I have to have my beautiful nails removed and then Susan goes away till next Friday. I still have the trip home on Sunday and Monday which I am not sure what I will do probably go shopping.

See I am not a graceful dancer but I tried.

Way harder than it looks

Maybe my best attempt

Just posing.

I got down and then leaned back in the next picture not easy

Almost slipped here and though I was going down.

Day 7 of Diva Las Vegas the last day Diva Las Vegas

It is the final full day of Diva Las Vegas and it is so hard to believe how fast the week has gone by. We were still up by 10 am even after getting to bed after 5 am, these short nights are catching up to me so I guess Susan is not as young as she use to be. We were all up and ready and on our way by 1 pm. We really didn’t have any plans till the big Farwell dinner tonight at Bahamas Breeze but we did need to get some rope to tie some stuff on the roof of the car as Michelle is going back to LA with us and we will have extra bags also. We found an Ace Hardware and Peggy and I went in to find some rope, now I have done a lot of shopping as Susan but this is my first trip as Susan to a hardware store.

After this we went back to the hotel and Cassandra and Cristine went to the room as Cassandra wanted to get her stuff packed as she had a lot of stuff, she does not travel light but than none of us do. I could do this same trip as my male self with just my one bag but Susan needed 3 bags one just for hair and makeup. Oh the simple joys of being a girl.

Peggy and I took the car and went back over to the mall at Planet Hollywood as Peggy has never been there and we wanted to shop. It is really a nice mall even though most of the shops are higher end but still fun to look around. We checked out some clothing stores that had some really cute dresses but they would not look the same on me as they are really designed for smaller ladies but still fun to look plus just being out wandering around with someone else makes for a fun day.

We also spent some time in a jewelry store and they had a lot of beautiful things. I found a really beautiful necklace but it is one that just slips over your head and you guessed it, it was to small fur me but Peggy bought it and I am sure it will look awesome. They also had a huge selection of earrings but all for pierced ears, it really is a shame I don’t have pierced as they have so many cute earrings. We spent about an hour and a half wandering around before we went back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We were all so looking forward to tonight even though we know it means the end to a wonderful week and now we have to wait till next year which I am already looking forward to.

I really didn’t need much time to get ready as I knew exactly what I was going to wear which I think is the first time this week I have worn what I planned on without changing my mind. I wore my maroon dress, high heels and my long wig and of course had to change my lipstick to match my dress, it is a girl thing. Plus it is so much fun walking through the hotel.

We got to the Bahamas Breeze around 6 for the social hour before dinner and it was so much fun to see the friends I have made over the last few years plus meet some new ones. The other cool things is everyone had cameras and there were so many pictures taken. As I have so many they will be at the end of this blog. I even got some pictures with the wait staff including Autumn who I met two years ago here and she had told me that the waits staff that works the Diva Las Vegas dinner all request to work this night as they think we are such a fun group. It is just a super fun night.

After we left the dinner we went back to the hotel and down to the casino, now it is a little different being in the casino in a nice dress and high heels and I was a little worried I would stand out but there were a lot of woman walking around the casino all dressed up but then tonight is a Friday night. We had a couple people walk by and next thing you know Cassandra is talking to them and got a picture with the husband than the wife wanted a picture with both Cassandra and me. We talked to them for quite a while and we were talking about gambling and I asked him if he knew what happened when you lose too much and he said no so I told him he was looking at it and I pointed to myself and the wife broke up laughing. They really were a lot of fun.

We sat around and talked for a while and then we all wanted to do a little gambling for our last night here. I was only going to gamble a little as I was going to drive Peggy to the airport Saturday morning as she had to be there at 5:30 am so we had to leave the hotel by 5 am. Well I went back to the Pai Gow table and sat down to play, I like this game as it is a lot slower pace than blackjack. Cristine went with me and I was explaining how it is played to her. another seat opened at the end of the table so Cristine sat down and also played, the guy next to her was nice and was helping her. well before I knew it, it was a little after midnight; wow does the time go by fast when you are having fun. I quit and was up so I walked away a winner but I know it will be a short night.

Now as I was driving Peggy really early in the morning I slept in my full makeup so all I would have to do is a quick fix in the morning to make it at least passable enough to walk through the hotel at 5 am, I figured anyone seeing me would just think it was a late night for me. Well I got up and through on some cloths, remember I have no male cloths so I had no choice but to be Susan. Well doing this half asleep and in the dark so I didn’t wake up Cristine was also a challenge. I even knocked over my purse. I met Peggy outside her room and took her to the airport and was back to the hotel by 6 so I could get a little more sleep before getting up. Anyway I got to the room and went to get my room key out of my purse and my wallet was not there, it turns out when I knocked over my purse it fell out onto the floor of the room. So now I am locked out and have no ID on me so I can’t go to the front desk so I had to knock on the door till I woke Cristine up. Well I finally got back into the room and into bed.

Thanks for reading and here are the pictures

Beverly and Me at dinner, I met her the first year when Cassandra, Peggy and I came to Diva Las Vegas.

This is Cami and I we met two years ago while playing golf.

This is Sue and me and I am blonde and can’t remember but I think I met her at the first Diva Las Vegas I went too.

This is Laura, Me and her wife Laura. I met them for the first time last Monday night but we did exchange messages on facebook as they saw I was also going to Diva Las Vegas. They are an awesome couple.

This is another one of the wonderful waitresses we had but she really need high heels as I towered over her.

Day 7 of Diva Las Vegas out on the Las Vegas Strip

Wow it is hard to believe how fast this week is going. I got up and got ready a lot slower as the late nights are catching up to us all. I got to bed last night a little after 3 am again and was up by 10 to get ready. It was about 12:30 when Cristime and I went down to get something to eat. We had sent Cassandra a text and hadn’t heard back from her. We got a quick snack and then went to the casino to see if any of the girls were there. we didn’t see any so I sat down at a blackjack table as the dealertainer (Beth Middler) was one that was here 2 years ago when I was here and I had played a lot with her than and she actually remembered me. I started off good but soon my luck changed but I was having fun. The next dealertainer was Shakira and she also remembered me. Well my luck didn’t change and so when the money I bought in with ran out I stopped and went to find Cristine. She had found Kelli at the slot machines so we talked about what we wanted to do. The problem is we could not get a hold of Cassandra and she was the one who had everyone’s phone numbers and was coordinating between us all.

Kelli wanted to do a little shopping so we walked next door to Harrah’s and checked out their shops. It was the nicest day so far we have had here in Las Vegas low 70’s and no wind. So we decided to walk up the Las Vegas Strip and check out some of the other casinos as it has been many years since Kelli has been to Las Vegas and we all wanted some sun shine.

The next hotel casino was the Venetian which is huge and very upscale but very beautiful from the outside. We ran into Veronica and she was on her way back to the Quad so we exchanged numbers so we could stay in contact and I also got Michelle’s number so now we were all in contact except for Julie and I texted Cassandra a few more times and still nothing. This is such a fun day as we are out walking with hundreds if not thousands of people and yes we did get a few strange looks but no one said anything to us nor did we have any problems. We were just a group of ladies out enjoying the day and the sights. We actually took many pictures here. This is where we met up with Michelle; this is a picture of Michelle and me by the fountain out front. This is also one of my new outfits I bought for this trip; I just love the color of my Capri’s.

Now we all had our cameras out as t-girls love getting pictures taken. We moved over by the canals and took more. This is the best of the 3 I think but since the other 2 are good they will be at the end of the blog. I am so glad I wore my low heels today because we were doing a lot of walking today.

Michelle wanted to go to the Fashion Mall which is right on the Las Vegas Strip and just a block down but are they big blocks. We got to the mall a little before 5 and started looking around. It was so funny as we finally got a text from Cassandra, her and Peggy had just gotten up at 5 pm. We were all going to meet up at 6:30 and go down town Las Vegas to the Fremont Experience and spend some time down there which I was really looking forward to as Susan has not been there yet.

Michelle wanted some ne eye shadow so we went into Macy’s and down to the cosmetic counter where Michelle was helped by a very friendly lady. She did her eye makeup and showed her how to do it and helped her pick out a great color pallet for her eyes and we were treated awesome here. Kelli and I wanted to get back to the hotel as we wanted to freshen up before going out for the night so we caught a cab back. I am getting good at freshening up so it didn’t take me long.

We drown downtown to the Golden Nugget to park. I think this is the biggest and nicest hotel casino downtown. We were all hungry so we went to their buffet which was a little expensive but oh so good. Going to a buffet is fun but as Susan I had limited choices as I love BBQ ribs but there was no way I was going to eat them as I would have had BBQ sauce all over my face and ruined my makeup and lipstick not to mention having it under my long pretty nails.

After dinner we walked down Fremont Street and it was wall to wall people and they have people who dress up as different stars, superheroes and so on and you can get a picture with them, they can’t charge but they expect a tip. Several of us got so pictures and I think the big one was the two showgirls. I think we all took several pictures with them.

From here we went to a place called Drink & Drag which is the biggest LGBT bar anyplace or will be when they are all done. They have 6 pool tables 8 to 10 lane bowling alley. Game room and bar and dance floor and they plan to add another 65,000 sq feet on the floors above. They really weren’t busy but it was the middle of the week.

After this we went out and watched a couple of the light shows which are awesome. All the casinos turn off their outside lights during the show which is pretty cool. The shows last 10 minutes or so and they do them every hour.

Now it was after midnight so we went back to the casino for the rest of the night. I played a little blackjack and did okay but when the table went cold I stopped and went over to the Pai Gow table as it is a lot slower game. I love blackjack but at $10 a hand if you are losing it doesn’t take long to go through your money. I did well at Pai Gow and when I stopped I had won back all I had lost that day plus some. I went over to check on Cassandra and checked my phone to see how late it was and it was after 5 am so I went up to bed. I think this is the latest I have been up in a long time but it was so much fun.

Thanks for reading.

Day 6 of Diva Las Vegas the half way point in the trip

Well we got up and we are all moving a little slower as the late nights are catching up to us. I think we were in bed about 3 am and I actually got up about 9:30 and started getting ready and it took me longer today. This is me at the elevator. We were meeting at the dealertainers before we head out our first stop is Planet Hollywood hotel casino as we are going to the Nathan Burton magic show at 4 and need to get our tickets. As I said all are moving slower and it was just Cassandra, Cristine, Kellie and me that were going and we were going to get Julie’s ticket.

We drove over to Planet Hollywood and went into their mall yes a lot of these casinos have big malls in them they are actually small cities with everything you need and they do that in hopes you won’t leave. Well as luck would be we walked right into the information booth and we could get our tickets right there and the theater the show is in is just down the mall. We bought our tickets $44 and got a 45 minute pre show with another magician so we had to be at the theater by 3 now. We were hunger so we had lunch.

After lunch Cassandra and Kellie went back to our hotel to get Julie and Cristine and in took the chance to walk the mall. There was a young lady in an awesome costume passing out coupons so we stopped so I could get a picture with her. It was funny as she asked if Cristine was my mom, Cristine was flattered by this so I guess I would make a pretty good daughter. If I had thought I should have got a picture with all 3 of us.

We continued around the mall and walked into the casino. It was really nice inside and the female dealers all had on these really cute outfits but the tables were all at least $15 a hand, gambling is getting expensive for this girl as I gamble for fun so the cheaper the better. Well we went back into the mall and continued on around as the mall is in the shape of a circle. We did take time to go into one store and I bet most can guess which one, yes Victoria’s Secret. We had several of the girls working there ask if they could help us and if we needed anything to just ask. One young lady even talked to us for a while, they made us feel just as welcome as anyone else. We got back to where we started and met up with Cassandra, Julie & Kellie and went into the pre show.

The first magician was Armando Vera and his show was close up and only about 25 people and he had great interaction with us. He did a lot of card tricks and boy was he good. He could move cards around and find any card in the deck. It was an awesome show and if you like this type of magic you should check him out. His show goes about 45 minutes and then we went down to our seats for the main show.

The main show was Nathan Burton and he won the Americas got talent a while back and how he got started. His is a comedy magic show and it is awesome and worth every penny of our tickets. If you are in Las Vegas and looking for a fun show that really isn’t that expensive you should check this show out. We all laughed so hard and the magic tricks were awesome.

After the show we walked back through the mall and casino and met up with others from Diva Las Vegas for dinner at PF Chang. It was so nice and we had a great time and of course got a few more pictures. I thought this was a cute picture of me and Julie before dinner. We were upstairs and had a bunch of tables all put together so we could talk and interact with each other. The food was awesome and it was just a fun night. I got to talk with many girls I have met before and met some new friends.

We stayed here till after 8 and then we had to go as Cassandra had to be to the airport at 9 to pick her wife Peggy up as she flew in tonight to spend the next few nights here with us which will be so much fun. Also tonight Michelle is flying in but she won’t get in till around 10. I made a quick trip to the room to make sure my makeup was still looking good and then back down to the casino.

I was the first bone down there so I sat down at a blackjack table and started playing and I did okay which means I didn’t lose money. Cassandra and Peggy got back and it was so awesome to see Peggy again now we just have to wait for Michelle to show up. Julie wanted to play Craps and I know how so we went over to a table. They were busy but we found a place the bad thing is it was a $5 table and as you have to have more than one bet to really have a chance to win it gets spendy. Peggy was with us so Peggy and I pooled our money and Julie played on her own and I just told her where and how to bet. The table was a little cold and soon it was Julie’s turn to throw the dice and she did awesome. She threw for about 15 minutes or more before she threw a 7 and lost. She was doing so well the whole table was cheering for her and the people at our end were high fiving her and me when she hit her points. We all made money and we should have walked away after she was done as we were up but we kept playing. In the end I think we all finished just a little up but had a blast.

Michelle finally got there and we all went back over to the blackjack tables and found a table we could all sit at and played for quite a while. We gambled for a good 5 to 6 hours and in the end I think I finished with $10n more than I started with. It was a supper fun night. It was about 3 am when I was done, Cassandra was still playing so I cashed in and off to my room for some sleep that I really need now as we have had some really short nights.

One final picture from dinner tonight. Thanks for reading

Day 5 of Diva Las Vegas Golfing as Susan

Well today is the golf tournament at Desert Rose Golf Course. We were meeting at 7:30 to head to the golf course now my male self could have gotten up at 7:15 and been ready but not Susan. I got up at 6 am to start getting ready band even then I was pushing it to be downstairs to meet the group on time. Yes that is correct I have to do my makeup to go golfing, doesn’t every woman? After all it is all about how you look right. We got to the golf course and got signed in and down to warm up at the driving range. My nails were a little on the long side for golf but I could still grip the club so I was good although I did have to take my ring off but left my bracelets on.

We were the 4th group off the tee which I like as I really hate having to be the first to hit, too much pressure. This is a picture I took after playing golf so not great but still after 5 hours in the wind playing golf I looked better than I thought. Now I knew it would be cool out only the upper 60’s but that is nice weather in Portland this time of year but with the wind always blowing and when the sun was behind the clouds which was most of the time it got cold especially when we were driving the cart between holes.

In my group was Cassandra, Julie, Veronica and me, Petra was in the group behind us. Now I knew it would be windy from previous years so I did bring 2 hair clips which helped but still had hair blowing in my face. This is the only thing bad about long hair but one of the things you have to put up with to be cute.

It took about almost 6 hours for all 5 of our groups to play which is a little slower than normal but we were having fun and looking good and that is what the day was all about. Plus the course was not busy at all so have to wonder about it as the greens were really in bad shape and so were a lot of the fairways, but t5he staff here are wonderful and always treat us great. We did get a few looks from other golfers on the course but I am sure they were just jealous of how we looked.

Now Susan did have her 3rd best round of golf ever today but then again this is only the 3rd time I have played golf as Susan, but as I said all day long it was not about the score but how cute I looked. Now I know what everyone wants to know what Susan’s score was. She shot a 106 today my goal was to be under 100 as my male self usually shoots between the low and upper 90. I never said I was great at golf I just like it and playing as Susan is way more fun.

After the round of golf we had lunch and prizes and a small gift exchange. Actually today was not that expensive as for $50 dollars we got our round of golf, cart, bucket of balls for the driving range and lunch. It was after 4 when we left the golf course and went back to the airport to put our clubs on Julie’s plane.

It was almost 6 when we got back to the hotel so we all went upstairs to get cleaned up, fresh makeup and new outfits for the evening. We were going to meet in the casino at 6:30 and decide what we were going to do. Now today Kellie flew in for the rest of the week so she met us downstairs.

Jen and Mary also got in today; Cassandra and I met them the first year we were here in 2010. They are two GG’s from Utah. They come to Las Vegas in April to celebrate one of their birthdays and they had so much fun with us they plan their trip so they can hang out and gamble with us. Jen got there but Mary had a little too much fun earlier in the day after they got in and stayed at their hotel to rest.

I went and sat down at a blackjack table that was empty and I no more than sat down and a guy came over and sat next to me. He was really drunk; actually the dealer was waving off the cocktail waitress from serving him. Well he started hitting on me and I have to wonder if he realized I was a t-girl or not. I was so glad when Veronica, Cassandra and Kellie came over to play. Well I was losing and the guy next to me was starting to play stupid so I stopped and left the table.

Now we wanted to get something to eat so we walked next door to Harrah’s and went to Toby Keith’s restaurant. The food was good but the music was a little loud and the tables were big so it was hard to talk except for the person next to you. Tonight I did have a salad as I wanted to eat a little healthier.

Now it was after 10 and we went back to play blackjack at the casino. Now the other night I could do nothing wrong and wo9n big but that was not the case tonight. I tried several tables and dealer and they were all hot. I probably lost a little over half of what I had won but I am still up for the trip and having fun. Cassandra did well tonight so she went to cash some of her chips in and me we all went with her. I walked over to the crap table to check it out as they have a computerized on here. You still throw the dice but other than that it is all computerized. Two guys sitting there tried to get me to sit down and play but I had lost enough for the night so I just talked with them and they explained how the table worked. They finally left and Julie came over and wanted to know more about playing it. She has played before but didn’t understand the odds. Now I am by no means an expert but I was able to explain some more to her.

We must have been there 15 minutes when one of the guy’s earlier came back to talk to us. He told us he admired our courage for being out as female and as we talked more with him we found out he is a crossdresser. He paints his nails but as he was here with his parents he had taken the color off but he and his wife go get manicures and pedicures together. So we talked with him for maybe 20 to 30 minutes and told him all about Diva Las Vegas. I even gave him one of my little cards I had made up for Susan with my e-mail and a link to my blog as I have a link to the Diva Las Vegas web page there. I think he may check it out and maybe plan to go to one of the future Diva Las Vegas.

Well Julie and I went to look and see if any of the other girls were still in the casino. We saw Cassandra and Jen still playing so headed over to see how they were doing. As we passed one of the tables that were empty the dealertainer that was there was Brittney Spears and she had on this really cute pink skirt so I asked for a picture with her and she was only too happy to. I love this look but it would not look the same on me.

It was a really fun night and I think it was about 2:30 when we went upstairs for bed. It has been a long and fun day and as I was getting ready for bed I realized that today was Tuesday and by this time next week I will have had to remove my beautiful nails and be back to my male self which is sad but I think by then I will also be a little relieved as it takes a lot of work to be a female.

Well tomorrow is day 6 of my trip and the start of the second half. It has been such a fun week and having so many good friends here with me from Portland has made it awesome. Wednesday morning Petra flies home but Wednesday evening Peggy (Cassandra’s wife) and Michelle flies in.

Thanks for reading.

Day 4 first full day in Las Vegas

Well for our first full day in Las Vegas we all got up a little later after being out till 3 am last night. We met in the casino and then Cristine, Cassandra, Petra and I walked over to Margaritaville for lunch. We were all hungry and wanted to sit out on the patio as it was such a nice day. We had to wait about 20 minutes in line for a table and had a chance to talk to a family that was here from Main which was fun. They asked us what was good as we had told them we had eaten there last night. We finally got seated and had a good lunch and of course I had to get a picture before we left. We actually sat there for a while and just talked and enjoying the nice weather and people watching.

After lunch we walked back to the hotel to get cleaned up for the evening dinner and get together. This would give us a chance to meet others that came to Diva Las Vegas this year and to catch up with some we have met at previous Diva Las Vegas. I did change into a dress and high heels and redid my makeup. We were all ready and met in the casino at 5 for the trip to the Artisan hotel where the dinner was. We got to the Artisan and went in and there were already a lot of t-girls there. Well one of the first things was to get some pictures before it got too busy.

We checked in with Beverly as she was one of the event’s organizers. I even got a chance to talk with her for a while which was nice as I missed last year it had been 2 years since I had talked to her. This is me in my black dress in my best pose. It was a fun time and I got a chance to talk with many of the girls I have met before.

I got to talk with Keri and Angela who are also from our group but don’t get to go out with the group very often. I also met Amy who was here for her first Diva Las Vegas. She seemed very nice and we had a good chance to get to know each other. Valerie was also there, I met her and her girlfriend (now wife) 2 years ago as we played golf together that year. Her wife will fly in later in the week. Cami also was there and I had met her the same year playing golf. We are all looking forward to playing golf tomorrow and it sounds like we have about 20 of us playing.

I also got a chance to meet Laura & Laura; they had contacted me on Facebook as they were going this year. It was so nice to put a face to their names. Laura met her wife while she was out as Laura and it just worked out that her name was also Laura. I had got pictures with them but must have been on one of their camera so will have to get one the next time I see them. I also got a picture with Julie and just had to post it as it was so cute.

It was such a fun night and met so many new people and being blonde I can’t remember all their names it was a good think we had name tags because I found myself having to look to remember them. The Artisan is a really nice but small hotel and has no casino but very friendly. It is really dark inside so when you walk in from the bright sunlight you can hardly see till your eyes become accustom to it. They also have paintings all over the walls so I spent some time looking at them.

I also got to meet Angela and Vivian and I can’t remember where they are from but we chatted for a while and of course more pictures. They both had on really cute dresses and looked great.

I am not sure but would guess there were at least 60 t-girls there plus significant others. This was the main welcome meeting and next to the farewell dinner Friday night will be the biggest event. That is one of the things about Diva Las Vegas they try not to have everyone at the same place at the same time, one of the reasons they have 4 to 6 different events going at any one time.

We got so busy meeting and greeting with everyone that we never did eat dinner so it was a good thing we had a late lunch. The staff here were awesome and had on really cute corsets so of course I had to get a picture with one of them, didn’t get her name as I had another blonde moment but they are below.

We stayed till after 9 before we left as we had to run out to North Las Vegas airport as Julie had flown in and brought all our golf clubs and we don’t want to have to get up early tomorrow to run out there and get them as we have to be to the golf course by 8:30. We are all so looking forward to it. We got back to the hotel about and all went to bed as we have to get up early and do our makeup so we all look pretty to play golf.

Thanks for reading.

Day 3 of Susan on her way to Las Vegas

Well we woke up this morning and got ready for the trip to Las Vegas. Being a girl takes more time to get ready and as Cassandra is traveling in male mode she was ready really fast so she took all our bags down and loaded the car while Cristine and I got ready. Even with this she still had to wait on us to do our makeup. Thank god she is also a T-girl as she knows how long it takes and didn’t mind waiting. It was a little after 10 am when we left, which was fine as 10 was our goal. Cassandra was waiting in the car for us and all I had to carry down was my purse and one small bag which had mostly my makeup. It is nice being a female.

The drive to Las Vegas was fine and we stopped at a McDonalds drive through to get something to eat on the road. Now eating a hamburger without messing up ones lipstick is a challenge but I am getting better at it. It really does force you to take smaller bites which makes you eat slower. We still haven’t decided what we will do tonight when we get there a lot will depend on how long it takes us to get there we are hoping to be there by 3 to check into our hotel which will give Cristine and I time to freshen up of course Cassandra will have to dress completely. Julie and Petra are already in Las Vegas waiting for us to get there and I think a few others might be too. This will be such a fun week and I just know it will go by so fast.

We got to our hotel just before 3 and Cristine and I went in to get in line while Cassandra got all our stuff to the bellhop and then went and parked the car. The line was not nearly as long as it was 2 years ago when I was here. We only had to stand in line for about 15 minutes which gave Cassandra time to park and get back to the registration area. We were next in line when she got there. Veronica was already there and checked in about 10 minutes before us. We asked for adjoining rooms and found out there was a $15 per room per night for adjoining rooms so we just asked for rooms close. Cristine and I are right across the hall from Cassandra which is more than good. We unpacked for the week and I really brought more outfits than I need. I have 2 dresses for each day and almost 4 tops. Now Cassandra is getting ready as she has to transform from male to female. I just freshened up my makeup and decided to just change tops instead of wearing a dress tonight. I am wearing my 3″ heels with my Capri’s which is something I have never done before, only wear my high heels when I wear a dress.

Cristine, Cassandra and I were going to meet Petra downstairs so off we went. I had to get a picture of me and I thought waiting for the elevator was a good place plus this is one of my new outfits I bought for the trip. Well we got downstairs and met Petra and then we walked over and got our players cards for the casino and then we walked through the casino checking things out as they are completely remodeling the casino and it looks a lot different than the last time we were here. The casino is really nice but they have replaced most of the carpet with shiny, smooth tiles which is a little slick in 3″ heel but the sound of your heels on the floor is unmistakable.

We had decided to go next door to Margaritaville for dinner which is in the Flamingo Hilton and we have gone here each time we have been here as they have a deck you can eat on overlooking the Strip. Now walking down Las Vegas Blvd (the Strip) as a girl in high heels is so much fun and yes we did get a few looks just because there were hundreds of people walking by and I am sure it was because of how great we looked and how well we walked in our heels. We ordered drinks while we waited for Julie and Veronica to show up.

Julie and Veronica finally showed up and we ordered dinner. Our waiter was awesome and so much fun. It was a wonderful time and for the most part the other people there paid no attention to us. It was also awesome watching the sun go down and the day turn into night on the Las Vegas strip. This also meant a few more pictures as Susan has had her picture taken at Margaritaville each year she has been here. This is a close up of me on the deck the other one from here will be at the end of the blog as I am having trouble with spacing and have more pictures to fit in.

As we were getting ready to leave I ran into Sue who I met here two years ago when I was here so I got to talk to her for a little while and catch up which was nice. Well we started back for our hotel by walking back down the Las Vegas strip and ran into another girl from Portland who was here for Diva Las Vegas, now this was the first time I have met her and she seems really nice. Of course we stopped walking and now are just standing on the Strip talking when a man started walking towards us and I could see his wife and two daughters all had their cameras out so I knew what they wanted and of course we were all to happy to get our pictures taken and I even had one of his daughters take a picture on my camera. I am sure this will be the highlight of their trip because by the time we were done they had all got their picture taken with at least one of us, Veronica on the left, Susan and Julie on the right with Trish looking between us. What a fun time.

We got back to the hotel about 9 and we found a blackjack table that was empty so several of us sat down to play. Now the Quad has what they call dealertainers in one of their blackjack pits and what that is are all the dealers impersonate some star and actually perform on a stage in the pit area when they are not dealing cards so you not only get the fun of gambling but a show at the same time. I can’t remember all of them as they move around so much but some were Prince, Huey Lewis, Elvis, Dona Summers, Whitney Huston and a few others and they were all so much fun to play with as they not only talk to you and get to know you but they cheer for you and give High Fives when you get a good hand, it is the most fun you can have playing Blackjack. We were having so much fun time slipped away from us. The only bad part is the tables were $10 a hand which is more than I like to gamble but what can you do.

The table we were at was awesome and we had other players there they not only didn’t care we were there but were having a blast playing with us. Julie and I never left our spots as we were doing well Cassandra, Veronica, Petra and Cristine tried other tables. Before we knew it, it was almost 3 am I had been sitting at the same table for almost 6 hours so we called it a night, Julie and I were the last two to leave. Now was the fun part of cashing in and going to the casher to get our money. I was so excited as I won $340 while playing which was awesome. Now on the way out Julie and I had to get a picture with one of the dealers, there was no one at the table where Whitney Huston was dealing so that is where we went and she was more than happy to get a picture with us and we talked for a bit with her. It was such a fun night.

Now on the way back to the room I had to stop at hotel reservations, Cristine and I are sharing a room and the key she had didn’t work in the door to the room so I had given her mine so I needed a new key and I was amazed as there was still a couple people checking in at 3 am. Well I got to the counter and of course had to show her my ID which I am getting more at ease with. I handed it to her and smiled and said I look a little different then my ID and added it has been a long day and haven’t had a chance to freshen up. She smiled and said I still looked good and then she looked at the ID and realized what I meant and smiled. She made me a couple new key cards and off Julie and I went. It was a really awesome first day in Las Vegas so far.

Here are a couple more pictures from Margaritaville. You can see Caesars Palace behind me if you look close.

Day 2 a full day in LA

Well it is the second full day of Susan’s adventure to Las Vegas, we are in LA today and we decided to go to Hollywood and see the walk of fame and explore the city. Actually I found out we are not actually in LA but the cities just outside, what can I say I am blonde. We were all ready and left the motel by 11:30 for a fun filled day which included traffic. The fun thing was we stopped for gas and while Cassandra put gas in I cleaned the windshield which by the way is a first for Susan. While I was doing this a man walked through the gas station and as he walked away his head turned more and more to watch me. I would like to think it was because I looked so good but while he was watching me he almost walked into a parked car. We all had a good laugh about this after all this is West Hollywood and you would have to think he has seen a T-girl before.

We got downtown and noticed they had tour busses that took you sightseeing so we called and decided to take the tour. What could be more fun than riding around with other people and seeing movie star homes? Of course I had to get a picture of me on Hollywood Blvd. The cost was only $29 dollars. Actually it would have been $39 but we got a discount. Cassandra had called the number on her cell phone which goes through her radio in the car so as we discussed it the guy we had called could hear us and was willing to make a deal. He started off by offering us $10 off and in the end said he would pay the $10 to park our car so we went ahead and agreed and it was a fun tour. We were going to buy a map of the starts home and try and do it ourselves but this was more fun and we saw a lot more. If you like this stuff it is worth it once probably wouldn’t pay to go again.

I think there were about 7 others on the small bus with us and we had a great time and the tour took about 2 hours we even stopped once to get out and take pictures of downtown LA and the Hollywood Sign, at the end will be a picture of me on top of the hill and you can barely make out the Hollywood sign behind me. While we were driving around Cassandra took a picture of us to text to one of the girls we are meeting in Las Vegas so I had her send to me as I thought it was cute and you can see the other people behind us in the tour bus. I do have lipstick on that is a rose color and not really noticeable in the picture. There were so many people downtown walking around and we had a blast.

After this we were all hungry as we had not eaten yet today so we looked for a place to eat. We finally found an Outback Steak House; actually we used the GPS to find it. It really is fun to just be out with the general public having fun. We had a nice meal before we head out tonight to the Oxwood. After dinner we drove back to the motel to clean up and change outfits for tonight.

I decided to wear my red dress for the night as Cassandra wore a black dress and cristine had on a multi color dress, plus my red dress just looks good. We got to the Oxwood a little before 8 which was nice as there really was no one there yet so parking was easy plus we got there before they started charging the cover at 9. We sat at the bar and talked to some of the ladies there, it turns out that the t0girls never show up much before 9 or 10 so it was pretty quiet for a while. Of course this was a good chance to get some pictures so I had Cassandra go out front with me and take a couple pictures of me in front of the Oxwood. They don’t have a sign other than on the building above the door. It was fun to be standing on the sidewalk with cars going by.

Around 9 a few started to show up so we moved over to a table by the pool table and put our names up on the list to play. Cassandra finally got to play and won so I got to play against her. I made some good shots and did really well, it got down to we were both going for the 8 ball and I missed my shot and Cassandra made hers so I lost but it was a fun game. I put my name up again to play but there were 12 people a head of me. Pool here is big and the T-girls who play are good, I think at one point in the night we had almost 30 girls signed up waiting for their chance to play.

I got a chance to talk with some of the other girls here a couple I met 3 years ago when I was here with Cassandra and Peggy, one even remembered me but several remembered Cassandra but she has been here more times than me. We even met a T-girl named JC and it was here first time to the Oxwood, she has gone to Hamburger Mary’s before though so it wasn’t her first time out. We talked for a while and she seemed really nice.

Well about an 1 ½ hours later it was my turn to play pool again and got to play a t-girl named Stacy who by the way is really good at pool. I made some good shots band we had fun but for the second time I lost. I had a blast though and as there were 20 girls already signed up I figured there was not enough time left for me to get another chance to play.

They also have a dance floor here and there were a lot of girls dancing and on Saturday nice they set up two small stages with a pole and yes they have a couple girls that do pole dancing which is interesting to watch. It is amazing how they can hang on the pole with just their legs wrapped around it and flip upside down.

Later on Stacy came over and talked more with me and Cristine. She seems really nice; actually all the girls here were nice. I wish I had gotten some pictures with some of the girls here just didn’t think of it. Maybe next Saturday on our way home I can get some more pictures if I can remember. There was also a girl walking around taking pictures of the girls and she asked if she could take my picture and of course I could not say no as Susan loves the camera. Turns out she has a web page I think for the lady that hosts the show that was put on. If I can find the web page I will post it later.

It was a fun night and I think we stayed till 1 am before going back to the motel as we needed some sleep before tomorrow when we make the drive to Las Vegas. So far it has been a wonderful. This brings day two of being Susan 24/7 for the trip to an end but I know I will wake up in the mooring wi8th my beautiful nails for another fun day of being female.

Thanks for reading.

One more picture, this was taken earlier in the day on our tour from an overlook up on Mulholland Drive. I have to learn not to slouch which I do trying to hide my height. Next picture will be better.

Friday the trip to LA

Cassandra woke us up at 4:15 and it was time to get Susan ready for her trip and first full day as Susan. A quick shower and shave and then time for makeup. I love my nails and they look so beautiful but I am not use to doing my makeup with my nails on so that slowed me down a bit but in a day or two I will be fine and doing everything as normal. We were on the road by 5:30 for our trip to LA. Cassandra is driving in male mode and of course Cristine lives full time and I am being Susan full time this week, what fun.

The drive was nice and I had the fun of seeing my pretty nails every time I looked at my hands. It is so much fun being a girl. The drive took 15 hours and we made a few stops for food and gas and I never even thought twice about walking in someplace as Susan. We got checked into our motel by 8 and then Cassandra got dressed do we could go to Hamburger Mary’s for the evening.

We drove to West Hollywood to Hamburger Mary’s and they were really busy and we got a table on the front patio. Cassandra talked to them and found out that the Hamburger Mary’s all the T-girls go to is in Long Beach so we went to the wrong one. We sat there for a while waiting for drinks. And then as the show was getting ready to start they closed off the inside from the patio so we could not see or hear the show. Now we could have understood this if they had charged a cover for the show but they didn’t. And as the service was really slow and we were hungry we talked about leaving and going to the Oxwood. A guy at the table next to me asked me the same thing as they felt they were being shut out also. Any way the 4 of them at that table and 5 from another table left so we did also and drove back to the Oxwood. By the time we got there it was almost 10 and as they don’t have food we ordered a pizza from across the street and Cassandra and I walked over and got it. We had a nice dinner and talk and just hung out at the Oxwood till a little after midnight. They really weren’t busy as Saturday night is the big T-girl night here so we will be back tomorrow night.

We went back to the motel to get some rest for Saturday. Still not sure what we will do but as I will be Susan it will be fun.

Thanks for reading.
