My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Wednesday night BBQ

Okay I am once again more than a week behind in posting my blogs so back in time we go. On August 14th Julie had a BBQ at her house and she invited about 20 girls over for the BBQ, what a wonderful thing to do. Now one of the nicer things was she invited some of our new members and the spouses so they could meet other spouses. We actually have a lot of members who are married or in relationships with women. I would say over half of those showing up came with a significant other. Now we will test my memory of who was there, the one bad thing about waiting so long to write my blog. Julie and Trixie of course as they hosted it. Peggy and Cassandra as Peggy helped, Kimberly. Kris, Karren, Joan, Mellissa and her wife, Patty and her girlfriend, Danika and her wife, Jennifer and her wife, Veronica, Jennie, myself and I am sure I am missing 1 or 2 as I am pretty sure we had 20 there.

Now I rushed to get there and it turns out I was one of the first ones to arrive which was nice as I got to talk with Peggy for a while. I met Peggy back in the fall of 2008 and she is so nice. She is so supportive of Cassandra and really all of us t-girls in the group. Now I don’t want to sound like I am playing favorites because all of my friends in the group are awesome and such a big part of my life but Peggy, Cassandra and Julie are really my best friends on both sides of who I am. They know both sides of me and we have done things together both as female and our male selves and that is something years ago, I would never have thought possible. I would have never thought I would tell people about both sides of me. There are a few other girls who have met my male side also.

Well with traffic it took a little while for everyone to arrive but we had a nice time visiting while we waited and of course there were all kinds of snack, Julie and Trixie really went over board on food and drinks. Julie was the grill goddess as she grilled all the steaks for everyone and did a fabulous job. Soon we were all seated at the table to eat. Now it was one long table so now you could only really talk with those around you. I got to sit between Peggy and Julie and Cassandra, Jennie and Veronica were across from me so that was really my little group I got to talk with. It was a lot of fun. Now of course I took some pictures of the group and of course I had to get a couple with our hostess Julie. It was such a fun time and went buy way to fast.

It was almost 10 when we had finished eating dinner, desert and talking and girls started to leave. We all carried some things inside but Julie would have a lot of cleanup after. We all asked if we could help but Julie said she would take care of it tomorrow. It really is so wonderful of Julie to host such an awesome event, thanks so much Julie, and Trixie and Peggy for helping. To open your home like this takes a special person.

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

Friday and we leave Las Vegas for home, day 11 of my vacation.

It is Friday and the day I have been dreading Diva Las Vegas is over and we make the long drive home. I wrote my blog for Thursday before bed last night but posted it this morning as I have been trying to post them all in the morning. Now originally, we were going to leave around 10 as we didn’t want to get to Cassandra’s house to early and she has family staying Friday night and she will go home in boy mode but I will be Susan. Well it turns out there was some confusion and the family member is leaving Friday and as it will be late Friday night or early Saturday morning when we get there, we are fine, so we could leave earlier.

I got up and posted my blog from yesterday and then started packing. My goal was to have everything packed accept what I needed for that day. I have a small bag that carries my makeup and stuff so that is what I will carry down and I will send all my other luggage down with Cassandras as we have a lot of stuff and just easier to have the bellhops do it. I was just finishing my makeup when they took our luggage so I was pretty close to being right on time. I would get dressed and Cassandra would go get the car and load it. Yes, one of the nice things about being a lady is having someone do things for you.

Now a funny story, my first Diva Las Vegas in 2010 when I went with Cassandra and her wife Peggy, we had a wonderful time. Now that was my first all-girl trip, in other words that was the Start of going on vacation totally as Susan. Now I took way more clothes than I needed, probably enough to change 3 to 4 times each day, the one thing I didn’t take a lot of was pantyhose. I think I only took 6 pairs as I figured 2 to 3 days each. Well that year I think by the 5 day I had gone through all of them, yes I was having trouble getting use to the acrylic nails I had for that trip and I had to borrow a pair from Peggy and then buy a few more the next day so now I always take way more then I need. I buy them online and get them cheaper so I bought a lot. I actually took about 20 pairs this year to be safe. Now over the 10 days so far, I had only gone through 2 pairs. Well I left 2 pairs out in my small bag and sent all the rest with my suitcases. I got all dressed and bad my bracelets on when I was putting on my sandals and as I was fastening the last one, I caught the bracelet on my pantyhose and there was a run, a brand-new pair that I haven’t even worn. Glad I kept 2 pairs.

I took off the bracelets as I learned and then off with the pantyhose and put the second pair on and put my putt the sandals and bracelets back on. I was happy now a quick look around to make sure I wasn’t leaving anything and a last look in the room safe. Yes, each of the rooms here have a safe under the night stand. Now this required me to get down on my knees and yes, I had got everything out as I stood up the sandals, I was wearing which fasten with Velcro, well the one rubbed up against the other leg and yes you guessed it. Another run in my pantyhose. 10 days to go through the first 2 pairs and less than 10 minutes to go through the next 2 pairs. Now I had an issue I had a small run and nothing to change to. Well I hoped it would not be that noticeable.

I grabbed my stuff and went down to the front desk to check out. My finally bill was just under $600 for the 9 nights. I went out and Cassandra was in the garage with the bellhop loading the car and as luck would have it, they had not got to my suitcase so I opened it up and snagged a fresh pair of pantyhose and went back inside to the restroom and made a quick change. Another first as I have heard of woman doing this but it is the first time, I have had to do this. I felt so much better now. The car was all loaded and we were on the road by 8:30am for our 16-hour drive home. Now Cassandra travels as her male self and I know it may seem silly to get dressed up and become Susan for a 16-hour drive but I look at it as the experience. As for this trip the 12 days I am being Susan full time, the only thing I had that was male with me was my driver’s license and my male credit card, yes I always take the credit card with the same account number as my Susan card just incase they ask for ID and usually at least one place want a credit card that matches the driver’s license. Other than those 2 things there is nothing I have with me from my male side of my life.

We had a nice drive home and yes me did stop several places for gas and bathroom breaks and there were no issues. Our first stop was the Death Valley nut & candy co in Beatty Nevada. It really is a tourist attraction but a great pace to get gas and stretch your legs and we did get sub sandwiches here to eat on the way. Most of the time we would stop at gas stations that had little stores so we could get snacks and drinks as we ate as we drove. The weather was perfect for driving partly over cast and we only hit a light sprinkle maybe 5 minutes near Reno and then a good rainstorm for about 20 minutes in Northern California. Other then that it was a wonderful drive and Cassandra drove the whole way so I got to sit in the passenger seat lie a princess and be chauffeured home. Cassandra is like me she likes to drive. When I travel with friends, I would much rather be the person driving and as my male self I try to do most of the driving. Susan likes to drive but she is also willing to let someone else drive, one of the small differences between my male and female side. On the way down I did get to drive for a few hours. And I did do a lot of the driving around Las Vegas, Cassandra is really good about not driving after she has had a beer and as I don’t drink, I am the designated driver on these trips.

We got to Cassandra’s house about 1:30am exactly 16 hours after we left Las Vegas, GPS had it right down to almost the minute, you have to love technology. We figured out our expenses for gas as Cassandra paid it all and then we split. My share was $231 and that did include two stops for food so really my share of the gas was about $210. Now we did look into fights down this year and the cheapest tickets were a little over $400 each and that was only 1 bag so we would have had additional cost for our luggage so driving was the better way to go plus we had a car to use when we were down there. Plus, I live road trips. I would rather drive than fly if I had the time.

We got the car unpacked and my stuff in my car and I was on my way home. I have stayed here before when we got home so late but I have something I need to do in the morning so I wanted to get home. I got home a little after 2am and went right to bed as I was tired. Now I didn’t think of getting a picture today so I will include the picture from the trip down and of course my beautiful nails which will have to go away on Monday, Monday will be a sad day for Susan. This week has gone by so fast.

Thanks for reading and be sure and check out my most recent blog to see what is new and my Diva Las Vegas Blogs from 2019, and remember although Diva Las Vegas is over I still have two more days of my vacation so there is still more to come.

Wednesday and the Diva Las Vegas Golf Tournament, day 9 of my vacation

It is Wednesday and we are having our Diva Las Vegas Golf tournament at Wild Horse golf course. Now if you read my blog from Monday you saw I didn’t get to bed till 5:30am and then I slept till around noon on Tuesday now the problem with that is Tuesday night I was not tiered and had a hard time sleeping so when my alarm went off at 5am I was not rally excited. We need to leave for the golf course by 7as Cassandra is in charge and needs to be there early. Now in my male life I would have gone back to sleep till 6:45 as I could have been ready by 7 but not Susan she needs at least and hour and as the week has gone on I am a little slower, it really does take a lot of work to be a girl yes I will spend an hour getting ready and doing my makeup to look just perfect to go to the golf course. It was just before 7 when I was ready to leave, I met Veronica and Cassandra in the garage as they were already in the car waiting for me.

We got to the golf course and got everything unloaded and set up and waited for the other girls to show up. Now we had 12 girls playing, 3 foursome and we do a 4-person Scramble so it doesn’t matter how good you play it is all about how cute you look on the course. Ow of course I had to start on the driving range to loosen up. Now I am not a long ball hitter so for me to have a good game I just have to not try to outdrive the other girls. I did pretty well on the driving range.

We had all our girls here and were ready for are tee time at 9am. Now one of our girls who is here for her first Diva Las Vegas, she flew in on Tuesday and was really looking forward to the golf. The problem is it turns out her luggage didn’t make it so she showed up as her male self. That is really sad to think you are coming to Diva Las Vegas to be your female self and the airlines losses your luggage, now they did give her some money I guess to buy stuff she needed till they find her stuff but really would be hard to replace your girl stuff at a last minute in Las Vegas. I felt bad for her but she went a head and played and had fun.

Now as I said we had girls Cami, Treena, Tori, Lisa (team 1) Bev, Katie, Linda, Ann (team 2) Cassandra, Veronica, Renee, Susan (Me) (team 3). Now normally we play on Tuesday but there was a scheduling issue and had to play Wednesday this year and it worked out wonderful as on Tuesday it was really windy and today there is no wind and it is in the low 70’s. now of course we had to get pictures. We were the last group to tee off as we were the ones that would collect the markers for longest drive, longest put and the KP’s. yes, Cassandra had so many opportunities to win a prize and yes money. She really does a wonderful job putting on this event. Really all the girls who coordinate events do a wonderful job. They put these things together usually from out of town and they are responsible for the events including if people don’t pay so they take kind of a chance that people follow through.

We started off and had a wonderful day as I said the weather was perfect. I brought a hair clip and never needed it. For those of you who have never golfed as a female it is a lot more challenging, from the long nails, breast, and hair blowing in your face it really adds to the game.

Now this year I did a good job just focusing on my game and not on how others were playing and probably had my best game as Susan. I had some really good shots. Here is a picture of a long put I just barely missed. Now on our team as with all the teams we mixed it up, we tried to have each team with a really good player and some not so good. I kind of fall in the average range. I did really have some good shots one was from about 180 yards out from the green and I put it right on the green in high about 14 inches from the cup. Probably the best shot I have had in a long time. We had a great time.

We got done with the game and went to the club house for our lunch and awards. Now my team finished in second place which was good but as I said we only had teams. Cassandra gave out the rewards for the longest drive, put and KP’s and then we had a drawing for money. We each put in $20 and had 3 drawings. On the front 9 everyone who hit the green on a par 3 with their first shot was in the first drawing, everyone who hit the green with their first shot on a par 3 on the back 9 went into the second drawing and everyone who sunk a put from more then a flag length went into the third drawing.

The first drawing had 5 people in it and Cami’s name was drawn. The second drawing had 7 people in it and again Cami’s name was drawn. The third drawing for the longest put had 9 people in it including me as I had a ling put and I was hopeful but once again Cami’s name was drawn. She actually won all 3 drawings. With that luck I hope she has been gambling. Now there was one guy here in the club house that was a little loud and annoying while we were eating and as he had more and more to drink, he got very loud and Obnoxious and I think some of the girls were a little put off by him

We got back to the hotel about 3:30 and went to our rooms. I took an hour nap as I was really tied before I got cleaned up to go out. Cassandra was doing the bar crawl so at 7 I drove her down to met the other girls going on the bar crawl and then I went back to our hotel. I am not a bar person and I don’t drink so going to 3 different bars was not something I was interested in so I texted Veronica to see what she was up to. She was just getting ready so we agreed to meet for a late dinner at Magnolias so as I waited, I found a blackjack table and played till she came down. It was the only bad part of the day.

When she got there, I was u $5 so I quit and we went and had a nice dinner. It was amazing how many people were there at 9pm to eat dinner. After dinner we went back to the blackjack tables and played for a while. I played till 11pm and then I was down as I was so tired. Besides we had talked about going to the Valley of fire state park in the morning as Mellissa and her wife were going and that would mean getting up early again. When I cashed in, I had won $21 so I finished the day up just a little.

It was a fun but long day. thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what in new in my life and also keep up on my Las Vegas vacation this year.

Tuesday and dinner at PF Chang’s, day 8 of my vacation.

It is Tuesday day 8 of my vacation and tonight is dinner at PF Chang’s in Planet Hollywood. Now we got late start today as if you read my blog from yesterday you saw I didn’t get to bed till 5:30am today as I was out late playing blackjack. I slept in and didn’t get up till 11:30am and even then, I only got up then as I didn’t want to sleep to late as I need to be in bed early tonight as we go golfing on Wednesday and we have to leave for the golf course at 7am and that means Susan needs to be up by 5:30am at the latest to get ready.

Now an update on my nails, I have had them now for 1 full week as I got them done last Tuesday around 1pm. It is hard to believe how fast this week is going and I am now already thinking about next Monday when I will have to have them removed, it will be such a sad day. Now I and really liking them now both the length and the shape, I guess I am getting use to the shape now. I still really love the square shape but this is also a really nice shape once you get use to them. I know I can’t keep them but I wonder what my co-workers would think if I showed up to work as my male self with these beautiful nails.

Once I was up I just relaxed for a while and wrote my blog for Tuesday and watched a little TV. Yes, we are not doing much early in the day this year. Our plan was to leave for PF Chang’s at 5 so about 3 I started getting ready. I was ready a little before 5 and Cassandra was ready just a few minutes later and we were on our way down to the lobby. It took us about 20 minutes to drive to Planet Hollywood, now they still have free parking because of the mall there which is nice. The bad thing is it is a long walk through the mall, through the casino to the restaurant, I wore my ankle boots with heels as I can walk a long way in them before my feet start to hurt.

We got to the restaurant and Robin as there along with Michele and 2 other girls. Now Cassandra and I had originally signed up for Ruth Chris steakhouse tonight but we really wanted to go to PF Chang’s and there were several girls who wanted to go to Ruth Chris that were on the waiting list as we filled all the openings for Ruth Chris so last night we switched. Now Robin had set this dinner up and she had 15 signed up for it and Cassandra, Myself and Melissa and her wife asked robin last night and she said she had room for us as she had told them probably 20 would be there. This year we were in the private dinning room. Now this use to be one of the bigger dinners but for some reason this year that had a lot of dinner options this year on Tuesday. It turns out there were only 11 of us hear tonight so 8 of the nine who signed up didn’t make it. Now I did get some pictures of the group and of course my selfie of the night.

We ordered dinner and most of the items are family style so we had plenty of food to go around. We had a wonderful meal and great conversation and the evening went by so fast. Our waiter was awesome which has always been the case when we have come here in the past. We really do get treated wonderful every where we go. It was about 9 when we were all done and we left a d once again we had the long walk through the casino, through the mall, and into the parking garage to the car. We got back to our hotel about 9:30pm and went in. Cassandra went straight up to her room as it will be an early morning but I decided to go into the casino and see if veronica was there and maybe play a little Blackjack.

I found Veronica at her favorite table, yes, she has a favorite blackjack table because of the side bets you can make. I sat down and bought in with $100 to play for a little while and talk wit Veronica. We chatted as we played and once again, I was up and down. I played for about 40 minutes before I decided to go up to my room. I won as I walked away from the table with $107, nit a big win but a win nine the less.

I go to my room and took a little time to write this blog before going to bed as I will not have time in the morning to write it, although I will post it in the morning before we leave for golf. It is hard to believe we only have 2 more days here in Las Vegas before we head for home. This week has gone by way to fast.

Thanks for reading and be sure to check out my latest blog for what is new in my life and follow my Diva Las Vegas trip this year

Monday, welcome dinner at Bahama Breeze, day 7 of my vacation

It is Monday, the 7th day of my vacation and tonight is the welcome dinner at Bahama Breeze which is the biggest dinner of Diva Las Vegas and also the best. This is the one dinner that will have the biggest attendance of those attending this year. Now they have wonderful food and the staff is awesome, I know in years past talking to some of the staff a lot of them ask to work the night we are there. Now that being said and as we have been getting up late the plan for Cassandra and myself was to just relax till it was tie to get ready for dinner. I kind of thought it would be silly to get ready a couple hours early and then have to come back to the room to change for dinner as I am going to wear my little black dress and didn’t want to wear that during the day. Plus, after the first couple days winning at blackjack the last couple have been not so good, I am still ahead on my money but only about $100 instead of the over $800 I was up after the Friday. I wrote my blog from Sunday and watched a little TV and played on my computer till about 3 when I started getting ready as we wanted to leave for dinner at 5. As I said this is the best event of Diva Las Vegas and I really wanted to look my best. Cassandra and I were ready a little before 5 and went downstairs to wait for Veronica. I really love this dress I just wish I looked better in a full pose. I also took a selfie sitting at a slot machine.

Veronica came down just as we finished taking pictures and we were on our way, it took about 20 minutes to get to the Bahama Breeze. Now they were doing a new attendee get together between 5 and 6 to give them a chance to meet others in a smaller group and get information on how Diva Las Vegas works and answer questions. It looked like we had about 20 girls who are attending their first Diva Las Vegas. Now Beverly was already there as she was helping with the new attendee greet so it was awesome to see her again. I met here at the very first Diva Las Vegas I came to in 2010, it was also her first Diva Las Vegas that year. I talked with her a little and I will see her again on Wednesday when we golf. I did take a selfie in the car on the way over, yes, I am slowly becoming the selfie queen.

It was still early and they had finished with the new attendee greet and so a few of us that were there and have been at several Diva Las Vegas went and talked to the new members and meet them to help them feel more comfortable which I think is wonderful. I remember my first Diva Las Vegas there were a couple girls that I met that made me feel so welcome and it really does help. This really is a wonderful even and the people who attend are so supportive.

About 6pm more started showing up as this was the happy hour to meet people and catch up with girls you met at previous Diva Las Vegas. Renee showed up, she lives here in Las Vegas and I have known her for several years, I actually met her online, of course that means getting a picture with her. She really is a wonderful person and so much fun, I don’t think I have ever seen her without a smile on her face. We talked for a while an had a great time. Now it is funny as a few girls came over to see my nails as they seem to follow my blog and have been reading about my nails, yes, I love my nails. I so wish I could have nails like this all the time but it would be hard in my male life as I don’t think a man with long pretty nails is acceptable yet. Here is a picture from the day I got them for those first time readers. It really is a shame a man can’t have long pretty nails.

Now we put several tables together so we could fit more people together. We had Renee, Michele, Robin, Veronica, Wanda and her wife Susan, Melissa and her wife, Tonya and her wife Nell, Cassandra, Teri, and of course myself. Wanda and her wife went on the Mexican Cruise Cassandra put together. Now looking around I was amazed how many wives/girlfriends were here this year, that is so wonderful. Now I walked around and met a few other girls as more showed up I even met a girl who I have been friend with on Facebook for several years her name is Deborah Renee Smith.

Dinner started and we had a wonderful time talking as we ate. They really do have wonderful food here and awesome staff. If you come to Las Vegas Bahama Breeze is a wonderful place to eat and it is only a little way off the strip. We stayed here after dinner talking for a while and catching o with old friends and meeting new ones. It was about 9:40 when we left, now a lot of the girls were going to a club called Rush and it was in the Golden Nugget which is right next to our hotel so we decided to go. Now I decided to keep my heels on as we walked from our hotel over on the Freemont Experience. I was glad when we got there and could sit down. They had live music and 3 blackjack table in the club so something for everyone. A few of us sat at the Blackjack table and played. I played for a while but my luck has not changed, after about an hour I had lost my $100, I did last longer than Cassandra. It was about midnight when we left here and went back to our hotel. We got to our room and I locked my door as I was going to go to bed. Now Cassandra and I have connecting rooms and Cassandra found she had not lost as much money as she thought so she wanted to go back down to the casino. Well I decided to go but I did put on flats and we left and went to the casino.

We found a table and sat down now I did okay, just u and down, not really losing and not really winning but having fun. Cassandra on the other had blew through her money, yes, she is a bigger better than me. She was just about ready to quit as she had just $10 enough for 1 bet and then things changed. Now I wish I had upped my bet but after the last few days I didn’t but Cassandra did and about a ½ hour later she was up about $500. She stopped and cashed in and was going to call it a night. I decided to play a little longer. By the way one of the cocktail waitresses here who’s name is TJ came over. She is awesome and remembered us from last year and even though she was not our waitress she would stop by and talk to us. She is just so cute I had to get a picture with her.

Well Cassandra didn’t go to bed and son she was back and wanted to see if I wanted to go to another casino. Now I was up a little so I decided to quit and go with her. We walked over to Binions and found a blackjack table. Now they are $10 here instead of the $5 I was playing but I figured I could put another $100 in. We sat down and we had the same luck not really winning and not really losing. We played for a while and I as down to my last $40 and since Cassandra was playing 2 hands, I figured I would give it a try. Well I started wining and you do win more with hands of $20 than 1 hand of $10 of course you can also lose it faster but we were on a little winning streak. My stacks were growing and of course now we are both having fun. I was getting tired though and having a hard time concentrating so I finally decide it was time for bed besides I was ahead and wanted to quit a winner. I put my chips out and color them up and to my surprise I had $405. I went to the cashier and cashed in. wow it was 4:30 am. I walked back to the Four Queens and cashed in my chis from earlier and got $140. I had a good night and broke my 2-day losing streak.

Now the funny story as I was tired and I got to my room and neither of my keys worked so back down to the lobby to get new keys. Now back up to my room and the keys still didn’t work. I was not happy so back down to the front desk. the lady assured me the keys should work, she said the only reason it would flash yellow is if someone was in the room and had put the security lock on, then I would have to wake them up to get in. the moment she said that I realized I had been going to bed and had not only put the security lock on but the door bolt before Cassandra said she wanted to go down to the casino and I left with her through her door. So now I had to go find Cassandra and get a key for her room. Luckily, she had come back to our casino but she could not find her key so she had to go to the front desk and get keys for her room. She gave me one and I got into my room through her room while she went back to the casino. It was now 5:30am. I have not stayed up this late in a long time but it was a fun night.

Sorry this blog was a little long and if your read the whole thing you get 4 stars. Remember to read my most recent blog to see what is new with Susan and also my blogs from Diva Las Vegas 2019

Thanks for reading

Sunday, we finally did top golf, day 6 of my vacation

We got up a little later, yes we are sleeping in till about 9am so I took some time to write my blog from Saturday. We have not been getting ready till around noon as we hope our makeup can last the whole day that way. Well while I was writing my blog I was also talking with Casandra and we were looking for things we could go here and that is how we came up with top golf. Okay just a fun fact I found out while we were searching Las Vegas online. The city of Las Vegas actually only goes to Sahara Ave, seems back in the 50’s the city tried to annex the strip for taxes and the 5 main casinos formed an unincorporated township called paradise and that is where the Las Vegas Strip is located so if you go to the Las Vegas Strip you really are not in las Vegas. Anyway, our plan was to be ready by 1pm and on our way. I was ready just a few minutes before 1 Cassandra and Veronica were just a few minutes after.

We got to top golf about 1:30 and went in. they were not as busy as last year but we still had a wait, the lady said we could get the bottom floor in about an hour or the second or third floor about 1 ½ hours. Now they had a gigantic big screen TV with college basketball playoffs on so Casandra was fine with waiting so we signed up for the third floor and went and found a table to watch the game. Now I was hungry so I ordered food as did Cassandra and Veronica. Now our waitress was awesome, now what I noticed is all the wait staff here are woman, very petite, pretty ladies and that seems to be the standard for a lot of places here in Las Vegas. Now as we sat there another waitress stopped by our table and told me how beautiful my nails were and that are nails were the same. She held her hands to mine and I kid you not, she had the same color and shape although mine were just a little longer. I thanked her of course and after wards thought I should have gotten a picture of our nails together. It was just about 3 when our golf spot was open. Now I have really wanted to try this since Melissa first told us about it but the biggest reason is, I wanted to see if I could golf with my nails as they are lot longer than I have had before and I know the first year I had a hard time gripping the club. Well there was no problem with my nails and even though they are longer, I am thinking the narrower shape helps.

Now if you have never done Top Golf it is really just a driving range, usually 3 stories high but where it differs is there are giant holes (targets) you aim for and the golf balls all have RF chips in them that track them, speed, distance and yes where you hit in the targets and you get points for what part of the target you hit. Now there is a lot of luck involved in this but it was fun. You pay a rental fee for the golf bay you are in and it varies depending on the day, time of day and level you want, night time is always more. You can have up to 6 people at a time. We played for two hours and got 3 games in, a game is each person hits 20 balls, it does go a little slower as you watch the TV screen to see where your ball went, like an instant replay. Cassandra won the first game, I won the second game and Cassandra won third but we all had a blast.

We left here and stopped by the Flamingo to pick Robin u and then back to the Four Queens. Cassandra wanted to completely redo everything, I needed to make some minor touch ups on my makeup. We also met up with Terri, she is a girl that Casandra has known online for probably 15 years but never met. Terri’s wife has known about her dressing in private but it was more don’t talk about it and pretend it doesn’t happen. Anyway, they had a long talk a while ago and although she doesn’t understand why she needs to be Terri she is supporting it somewhat now and has even seen pictures and let her move her girl things into the house which is a big step. Well any way Terri is here for here first Diva Las Vegas. This is her first time out in such a mainstream public setting. Well Robin and Terri went and got dinner while the rest of us cleaned up.

Later we all hooked up and walked up the Freemont Experience to the D which is the casino next to ours and found a little bar to sit in and talk. It was nice as it gave me a chance to get to know Terri, she was having a lot of fun and you could see the excitement in her face. I can remember my first Diva Las Vegas back in 2010, where has the time gone. We talked for a while before going back outside. We made a quick stop in the Freemont casino and Veronica played a little blackjack as we talked more. Then it was back to our hotel, it is nice downtown as the hotel casinos are not so big and easier to get around. Cassandra

and I sat down at a table to play some blackjack. There was a man at the other side of the table and then a couple next to him and I sat next to the one guy’s wife and they were fine with us. Cassandra didn’t last long and soon I was by my self at the table with the other people. Now the couple next to me were in their early 30’s I guess and they had been drinking. The lady next to me kept telling me how pretty I was and how she loved my nails which I always love hearing even the dealers compliments me on my nails. Now I never really got a head of the $100 I bought in with but I would win some and lose some and basically just float between $50 and maybe $120. Soon they left and other came into the table and I would talk to them and it was a lot of fun. Finally, a young lady sat down a few chairs over and it turns out she is in college. Now of course one of the things everyone askes is where you are from as you get people from all over the country here. It turns out she grew up a couple miles from where I live. She was just back home to visit her family as her sister just had a baby and from the way she talked I am guessing her parents live about 2 miles from where I do and her sister less than a mile. What are the odds. Well the table finally turned cold and I lost the last of my $100 so I figured it was time for bed. I was shocked when I looked at my phone and it was almost 2am. I had played for long time and it was so much fun as pretty much every one who sat at the table was very friendly and talkative. Yes, I lost another $100 today but am still up from when I got here.

Okay I have had my nails for 5 days and I am really loving them and I am getting use to them. Still small things are hard like picking up a single chip or coin or opening a ketchup packet for the hot dog I had yesterday. I did eat my hamburger today without to much trouble at least till I git down to the last few bites. I am already thinking about when I will have to remove them in a little over a week and how sad that will be, I really will miss them.

Saturday, 3rd full day in Las Vegas, day 5 of my vacation

It is Saturday, our 3rd day in Las Vegas and the 5th day of my vacation and yes that means I have had my nails a full 4 days and I am loving it. I got up and wrote my blog from Friday, I am typing pretty well with my long nails now. It was about 11 when I started getting ready. I was ready by a little after 12. Now Robin comes to town today and Cassandra and I are picking here up at the airport about 1:45. I went down to the little café and got a hot dog for lunch as I waited for Cassandra to finish dressing. It really does amaze me how at ease I am walking around here as Susan with all the people. I was just finishing when Cassandra came down and we were off to pick Robin up.

We got to the airport and only had to wait about 10 minutes. It was great to see Robin again. Now it took a while to get her to her hotel, she is staying at the Flamingo this year. We dropped her off and drove down to Planet Hollywood and parked as you can still park there for free. This gives us a chance to walk through the mall and look around and then down the Strip with all the other people as we waited for Robin to get checked into her room and ready. Well we had no more then got and Robin texted Cassandra she was in the bar at the Flamingo by the sport book. So, we left and walked down the Strip to the Flaming to find Robin. Cassandra wanted to watch the college basketball playoffs. We found Robin and the two of them went to the sports bar to talk and watch the game. I decided to try my luck at the blackjack tables by the bar.

I found one and sat down to play. Two other young men sat down to play also and the girls with them stood behind them to watch. We started playing and I was doing okay winning more then I lost which always makes it more fun. Now the two guys were really bice and we were all talking and having a good time but I kept noticing one of the girls kept looking at me and I was wondering what she was thinking. Finally, she came over to me and told me how awesome my nails were and asked to see them. She said she wished she could have nails like mine. Now in the back of my mind I am think why would she not have them if she wanted them? Now even the dealer told me how awesome my nails were, I really love getting compliments on how I look as Susan but especially on my nails. Well I told her I knew how she felt as I would love to have my nails all the time and explained about Diva Las Vegas and how I couldn’t have these pretty long nails in my male life. I played for over an hour before my luck changed and I quit, I was up a little $125 when I stopped.

I went and found Cassandra and Robin, robin was just heading up to her room to change and re do her makeup for dinner so I joined Casandra to watch the college basketball. Now they had been sitting next to another couple and talking with them and we continued talking with them. Their names were Lauri and Bubba, I think that is his nick name. they are here from Colorado and they were awesome. We had a wonderful time talking with them of course it helped they all wanted the same team to win. We had a great tine with them. Veronica finally showed up, now right at the end the team they were cheering for lost. Robin came back down and it was time for dinner.

We walked outside in the pedestrian mall between the Flamingo and the LINQ and found a nice restaurant. It was called Chayo Mexican, we have eaten here in past years. We had a wonderful dinner as we all talked and yes, we did get a picture of our little group. After dinner we decided to go play some blackjack.

We went into the LINQ and found a blackjack table in O’sheas. We sat at a table that had young lady playing at and she was having a good time. We played for a while and I was not doing well. I got down to my last $15 bet and got ns 11 against a dealer 6 showing so I had to double down so I broke out another $100 and I lost. I kept playing and my luck didn’t get better. I actually lost here and it was my biggest lost this week $195. We all lost here, Cassandra was the biggest winner as she only lost $40

We walked back over to the Flamingo and Veronica went and played blackjack while Cassandra, Robin and I went and sat and talked for a while. We talked for about an hour and then we decided to go try our luck at the blackjack tables. We played for a while and my luck was not any better, I never did get a head and soon I lost my $100 so I quit. Today I finished down almost $300, I am still a head for the week so far but not as much fun when you lose. I want to blame it on being a Saturday night but I know that has nothing to do with it, just wasn’t my day.

Cassandra and in walked back to Planet Hollywood and got the car and came back and picked up veronica and the drove back to our hotel the four Queens. It was after 11:30 and as I have not been lucky at the tables I decided to go up to my room and go to bed. It was still a wonderful day.

Friday, the second full day in Las Vegas, day 4 of my vacation

It is Friday and day 4 of my vacation, our second full day in Las Vegas. Now before I get on with the day’s events an update on my nails. I am getting more use to them, still having issues picking some things up, especially small things and chips but I am liking them more each day, and I have gotten several compliments on them. Really liking the length.

I got up this morning and wrote my blog from yesterday, I am getting better with typing with the nails. Once I finished my blog I started getting dressed. I am not sure what time I was ready but it was before noon. Cassandra was also ready so we decided to go and check out the other side of the Strip. Veronica had a few things she needed to do so Cassandra let her take the car and we took an Uber to the New York New York casino. We went in and found a Blackjack table and started to play. Now yesterday we did this and we all did well, well Veronica and I won money, Cassandra lost a little although she won at 7 of the 9 casinos but for her the two casinos, she lost at were the two she bet bigger at. Now our luck was with us again as we both left with more money then we started with. Now what we are doing is when we get a head and start losing, we quit. When you play blackjack most of the time at some point you will win some money the problem is you tend to keep playing when your luck charges. Doing it this way a lot of time you don’t play for long at one place. We left here with our winnings.

We walked over to the Excalibur and went in. Cassandra wanted to check out the restaurant we went to the other night, Dicks last resorts to see if they had enough room for a big group incase we can get a Diva Las Vegas dinner set up here for next year. After we did that, we found a blackjack table and sat down to play. We played for a little while and it took a little work but eventually we were both winning so we quit and once again had more money than we started with.

We left here and walked up to the Park hotel casino, formerly the Monte Carlo. We looked around and found a blackjack table. There was an elderly lady sitting alone at the table playing so we sat down to play. It turns out today was her 90th birthday, her name was Sasha. Well we introduced ourselves and talked with her a little. She said she was going to leave till as she said us lovely ladies sat down. She was s fun to play with and when we gave the dealer our player cards and the pit boss gave our cards back, he used our male names as that was what was on the cards and they all do it but he wished us ladies luck. Anyway, Cassandra made the comment we looked a little different then our names, didn’t seem to faze Sasha she just said it sure is fun to get dressed up sometimes. The dealer also commented on how awesome my nails were and wished she could have her nails like mine. We played a little longer here as we were enjoying playing with Sasha and sharing her 90th birthday. We finally quit and yes, we were both 3 for 3 as we left with more money than we started with. As a matter of fact, I was up over $200 by now.

We walked to the Aria and went in, this is one of the newer resorts on the strip and really big and higher end. Now they did have a few $15 tables but they were all full so as we were feeling pretty good on how we were doing today we sat down at a $25 table. We played for a little while and I did better than Cassandra. Which sound pretty good but it really wasn’t. Cassandra lost 6 hands in a row, not one win or push. I actually won 2 hands and had ne puch but it was only a few minutes and Cassandra had lost $150 and myself $100. We were still both up for the day but it was a letdown.

We were a little hungry and wanted a break so we walked across to the Planet Hollywood casino and went to a restaurant in the miracle mile mall called Blondie to eat. We got a table and Veronica texted us to see where we were so we waited for her to catch up with us before we ate. I did get our waitress to get a picture of Cassandra and me as we waited for Veronica and of course a selfie. Veronica got there and we had a nice late afternoon dinner as we watched some college basketball. After we ate, we went into the casino and all 3 of us played blackjack. My luck was not good so I quit before I lost to much, I was down $50, I think Cassandra won $5 and Veronica also lost.

We walked next door to the Paris and found a blackjack tale. We were working our way back down the Strip again. Now my luck changes as did all of ours. We played for a while and all left winners with more money than we sat down with and for the day I still had more money than I started with.

We walked down to the LINQ and went in to pay Blackjack as we all did well here yesterday. It started off bad and soon I was down to mt last $15 but then things turned around. By the time we quit I had won $95, I had got back a lot of what I lost at the two casinos I lost at. We once again all walked away with more then we started with.

We went next door to Harrah’s and found a blackjack table. Now our dealer here was awesome, we really did have great dealers at all the casinos but the one here, Sarah was so much fun, she was high fiving us and joking with us and really wanted us to win, she was awesome. The sad thing is she was on a hot streak and I was the first one out, we actually played for a while but I never got a head. I would get down to my last $15 and then win a couple and then lose again and finally my $100 was gone. We had played at 7 casinos and I lost at only 3 so it was a good day. Even though when I lost it was bigger than when I won, I was still up about $160 for the day.

We caught an Uber back to our hotel the Four Queens. It was only about 9:0 so we went into the casino to play Blackjack. We all started at the same table but soon we were all at different tables. I played a little over n hour and just steadily kept winning. It was a $5 table and that is what I was betting. I had bought in with $100 and when I quit a little before 11, I had $223 so it was a good way to end the day, up almost $300 for the day. I know this won’t happen every day but so far, I am doing pretty good.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new and also my blog from Diva Las Vegas 2019 this year to follow my vacation and 12 days of living as Susan full time.

Saturday evening dinner at Mother’s Bistro

It is Saturday and as I have said my time out as Susan is limited and short notice. My Dads health is not good and so I am limiting my time and also how far I go from home. Well while I was getting my pedicure and manicure this morning I got a text from Cassandra, seems here and Peggy were going out for dinner tonight at Mother’s Bistro and they wanted to know if I would be out and if I wanted to join them. Now I really had n o plans on going out tonight as the last few days my dad was not doing well, some bad days so I texted her back I would let her know after I checked on my parents. I was really excited about going out though and also seeing Peggy and Cassandra as it has been a month and the last time I saw them I was in male mode so I really wanted to go. It was about 2:30 when I got to my parents and today was a good day for my dad so that was good and also gave me the feeling I could go out tonight so I texted Cass I would meet them for dinner at 6:30.

It was about 4:30 when I got home and started getting ready. Now the only bad part is Mother’s Bistro is about 30 minutes from home and that is always in my mind. I was ready and on my way by 5:45 and got downtown Portland at 6:15 and found a parking spot a block away and walked over to Mother’s Bistro. Peggy had texted me they were looking for a parking spot so I was there first. As I waited for then to get there I got a call on my phone from where my parents are and of course I thought the worst but it turned out not to be anything about them so that was good. But this is what I am most worried about when I am out as Susan.

Peggy and Cassandra arrived and it was so awesome to see them again. I really do have some wonderful friends who are more like family and I really do miss seeing them. Now they were a little busy but Peggy had made reservations so we were shown to our table. Now this is a wonderful place, so cute inside and wonderful food the only bad part is their floors are wood and highly polished so a little slick in high heels but they always warn people of this so if you do go there be mindful of the floors if you have heels on. We talked for a while before we ordered and it was wonderful to catch up with them. We even talked about the upcoming cruise which I had to cancel. I am so sad I won’t be going with them this time but I am hopeful we will do it again in a year or two. I made them promise to send me pictures especially of Julie and Cassandra on the plane.

Our food came and it was wonderful as always, tonight I had their chicken parmesan. Now our group has come here many times over the last few years and always been treated wonderful but this was Peggy’s first time here and she loved it. We had a wonderful dinner and great conversation but the best part was being out with Cassandra and Peggy, thanks so much for inviting me. Well as we were finishing up and big group of young ladies sat down at the next table, I am guessing it was a bridal party as one lady was in a white dress and the other were in black dresses. Now as I have said before Cassandra can talk with anyone and as they sat right next to us she looked at them and said now these are some girls I need to get a picture with and then asked who the bride was. I kind of laughed at that and said it was obvious the bride was in white and her friends were all dressed in black morning her upcoming wedding. They all laughed at that. We chatted with them briefly and then went back to our conversation.

We talked a little more and then one of the girls next to Cassandra got up and as she did the bride to be was sliding over and she looked at us and asked if we wanted to get a picture with them and of course the answer was yes so Cassandra slid over next to the bride to be and I moved my chair over to there table. Now the funny thing is they also had their phones out and I think they wanted pictures with us maybe more than we did. Peggy took several pictures with or different phones including mine. These are the pictures I really love to get, out with other people who have never met us before and this may have been their first time ever meeting someone who is transgender. Now I know it is hard to tell but Cassandra and I are the 2 at the far end of the table. They were really a fun group and we talked with them a little longer.

It was a little after 8:30 when we called it a night, it was so much fun to be out again with friends I really do miss all of them. I think I am going to try really hard to make it out next Saturday if my Dad is doing okay. Now it turns out we both parked almost the same place as I was a block away almost to the corner and Peggy and Cassandra were the first car around the corner so we got to walk together and talk more. It really was sad to call the evening to an end and say our goodbyes. I hope I will get to see them again before the cruise in October but if not, I made them promise to send me pictures.

It was a little after 9 when I got home and I was ready for bed as it has been a long week but I did have to get one selfie first as I thought my makeup turned out well tonight. It really was a wonderful night and just what I needed.

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

Wednesday night dinner

Just a quick note, there is still time to sign up to go on our Mexican Cruise, October 13 to 20 2018. We have 28 signed up right now let’s see if we can get 30. . For more information check out our web page or contact me.

It is Wednesday and our group is going out for dinner at McMenamines Ringlers Pub but first a side note. Today at work I was signing for a delivery and the lady making the delivery told me how nice my nails looked which made me feel good, then a few hours later I had my 6-month dental appointment and as I was checking in the young lady behind the counter told me how beautiful my nails were and asked if they were my nails or acrylic. I smiled and thanked her and told her my nails were in horrible shape and that they had acrylic on to help them look better. She said it really made a difference and they looked great. Now I have had people notice them before but it was just funny that twice in such a short time. Now I know people notice them but really very few have said anything about them. Well back to dinner tonight.

Now it was a rush to make it on time as I said earlier I had a dentist appointment at 4 and they were running late so it was about 5:30 when I got home and started getting ready. Now tonight was one of my faster times getting ready, yes, I was ready and out the door by a little after 6, might be a personal record for getting ready. I got downtown at 6:30 and found a parking spot right across the street. I got inside and Cassandra and Peggy were already there. It was wonderful to see Peggy out again and yes, she had brought aa cake as today is Cassandra’s birthday. We would have a lot of cake tonight as Melissa and I had talked about it being Cassandra’s last night for a while so we decided to get her a cake and gift card and Melissa was picking it up. Cassandra is taking a break and also stepping down from the day to day running of the group. She has put so much time and effort into the group and really made it what it is today. Now we talked and waited for others to show up.

Melissa and her wife were the next to arrive and yes, they had a big cake also, so much for my diet. Barb and Lori also showed up so we had 7 of us here tonight. Now we started off with appetizers and I ordered the Scooby Snacks and they were awesome. Scooby snacks are mini corndogs. We had a nice time chatting before we ordered dinner and for dinner I had a Caesar salad. I figured I should have something healthy before we had cake. Now our waitress was incredible tonight, well really, we have always been treated great here but our waitress was so much fun, she even took a few group pictures of us with Cassandra in the middle as tonight it really was all about Cassandra. She really has brought us all together into almost a family. It really will be different with her not coming out as much. I have made so many wonderful friends over the years and some of them are my closest friends, I really hope they know how much they mean to me.

Thanks for reading and be sure and keep up with what is new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.
