My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

A little Susan time on Christmas Eve, my gift to me.

It is Christmas eve today and I spent part with my parents. Now today it also started snowing so I went home early. Now it wasn’t supposed to snow accept for a little tonight so it came in early. Now I had some time for myself and I thought why not a little Susan time at Starbucks. I quickly got ready, and drove to the Starbucks by my house. I got there a little before 4 and they were not busy. Now being Christmas Eve I doubt if they will be open as late but I figured I could spend an hour or so here writing my blog from last night.

I went in and went to ordered a hot chocolate which would be perfect on a cold snowy day. The girl at the counter remembered me by name and said she hadn’t seen me in a while. I told her I haven’t been getting in as much, it was nice to be remembered by name and also missed. Now I talked with her a little about the weather while she made my hot chocolate. Now there were only a few people here and only a few came in, I think the weather and the fact people were busy doing other things on Christmas Eve. I thought about going shopping but was worried how much snow we would get. When I got here the roads were just a little slushy. Now as I sat there it really started snowing, I think I made the right choice not going to far from my where I live.

Now it was nice and relaxing here looking out the window at the snow as it came down. We don’t get snow that often and it is pretty to watch. Well another lady came in to get a drink and came over by my table and took some pictures out the window at the snow. I talked with her a little about the snow. It was a good night out. I was only here about an hour and a half as the snow was starting to come down harder and the was now over an inch on the roads.

On the way out, the girls working wished me a Merry Christmas, I wished them the same and told them I hoped they didn’t have to work too late. Turns out they are closing at 6 tonight which is good for them. Now as I left I had to take a selfie outside in the snow, it’s so beautiful out. I left Starbucks and made a quick trip to the gas station as with the bad weather I wanted a full tank of gas. I love this time of year and I would love it if the snow lasted one more day through Christmas, what better than a White Christmas which is my favorite Christmas movie which I am going home to watch.

Merry Christmas to all.

Keep up with what’s new in my life on my most recent blog.

Fun Saturday and a fun night at Harvey’s Comedy club

Okay today has been a fun Saturday. I woke up on my couch seems I got home last night when I got home  fell asleep on my couch, guess I was more tired than I thought. Any way I woke up still in my dress and full makeup with my wig on the floor next to the couch. Now normally I do not dress and stay at home. If I am Susan I want to go out someplace plus being at hoe I am always worried someone might stop by unexpected and yes I do have family close that do have keys to my house. But somet5hing today made me want to be Susan all day. now my makeup wasn’t good enough to go out but with a little touchup it would do for a day at home. Besides my plan for the day was to put up and decorate my Christmas tree and house.

So here I was in my dress heels and long nails as I got out my tree and started to set it up. I left my front curtain open so I could keep a watch out incase someone came by. I figured there was less of a chance of someone looking in from the outside and seeing me verses someone stopping by and catching me off guard. It was a fun day just doing normal things around the house as Susan. I finished up about 3 and then just sat around for an hour watching TV till it was time to start getting Susan ready for a night out at Harvey’s.

Now it did take a little longer getting ready as I had to remove all of my makeup from yesterday which took a little longer. I was all ready by 6 pm. Now before I left I had to get a picture and decided what better Susan puts up her Christmas tree (1)than next to my Christmas tree. Now normally I ma really careful on pictures I take at home as not to show to much incase someone might recognize it, I usually crop out all but myself from the picture but today I really wanted to show my Christmas tree so you get a little glimpse of my home.

I left and went to Downtown Portland to Fox & Hounds as some of us meet there early before we go to Harvey’s. I got there at 6:30 and Laura and her friend Lisa were already there. We got some drinks and then went over and sat a a table and talked. Camilla showed up, I have met her a few times before and she had two other girls with her. They joined us for a while.

Sandy also showed up for a little while, she was in town and had spent the day out shopping. It was great to see her again as she doesn’t get to Portland that often. She is really nice and we had a chance to talk and catch up. Over the last few years I have made some really good friends, some have moved away and others I met when they came here to visit but even though we don’t see each other that often they are still good Susan puts up her Christmas tree (2)friends and a part of my life and anytime I can visit with them is special. Rebecca also was out tonight, she was on a date but came over and talked with us a little also. It is funny as half the girls that were at Fox & Hounds were not going to Harvey’s they were just out for a night out. this is really wonderful that we are able to just go out and have fun on our own without feeling we have to be in a big group.

Barb, Samantha and her fried Kera showed up also they are going to Harvey’s with us. It was about 8:30 when we left for Harvey’s, there were 6 of us that made the 6 block walk to Harvey’s. now it wasn’t really cold but it was raining pretty good so of course I had my pink umbrella, Yes I have a his and hers umbrella in my car, Black for my male self and bright pink for Susan.

We got to Harvey’s and Cristine was there already. Now Laura and I went to the bar and got to talk with Star for a while as we were early and she was not busy at the bar. It was nice to talk with her but it wasn’t long and other people came in and she had to go back to work as they all wanted drinks.

Sophie and Dee also showed up so we had 9 for tonight’s show. Kim our favorite waitress came out and talked to us for a little while and of course she had a hug for each of us. While I was walking through the bar a young lady stopped me and told how beautiful my dress was, something I always love to hear as I really do want to look my best as Susan. By the way the dress in the above picture is what I wore tonight.

Well it was time to go in to the showroom, Kim had our table already for us. we all ordered and visited a little as we waited for the show to start, it was a smaller crowd tonight. The show started and as always it was really good. All 3 of the comedian’s were wonderful and we all laughed. This really is one of our more fun nights out as we get to interact with the general public and I think this really helps other people see us as just regular people who may dress a little different then they do.

After the show we got a chance to talk with Kim a little more, she is thinking of joining us out on a Wednesday night, I will have to make sure I make it out that night, Hopefully it wont be the next couple weeks as I will not be able to make it out during the week probably till after Christmas.

Well after the show several of us had to walk back to Fox & Hounds as we had parked down there. It was still raining but not as hard. It really was a fun night out in every aspect. Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Twas the Friday before Christmas with friends

Twas the Friday before Christmas and all through my house, Susan was rushing to get ready to go to Sweethome in hopes that Melissa would soon be there. I had my dress all laid out on the bed as I did my makeup and put my wig on my head. And what to my wondering eye’s did I see, my dress was not right for my makeup tonight, so back into my closet I rushed with a clatter to find that perfect dress and the boots to go with it. Yes Melissa is in town for the weekend and I was sure she would drop by Sweethome tonight. I finished up my makeup, grabbed my computer and was out the door by 6:15.

I got there about 6:30 and parked on the street as there was no room in the lot. Chris was inside with his computer and there was a fairly good crowd for this early. I joined him and got my computer out and checked Facebook and my e-mails as I didn’t take time earlier as I wanted to get out as early as I could. Heather from the other group had sent me a message that they were having a Birthday party for Poo from their group and of course they always do a theme so I knew they would have some great outfits on tonight. I ordered dinner as they had their Pork chop special which is always good. Cristine showed up also.

It was about 7 when Melissa and Mikaela showed up. It was so wonderful to see them again, last time I saw Melissa was when Cassandra and I were on our way back from Diva Las Vegas and we stopped in LA and met her at Hamburger Mary’s for T-girls night, you can read about it in my blog. Well of course we needed a group picture of us.

It was great to talk with them and find out what was new. Melissa moved to Southern California a little over a year ago and although the reason she moved didn’t work out the way she hoped she loves it down there as she loves the beach and warm weather, plus she has made friends down there also which is great. If you are Transgender you need to find friends who are also Transgender or at least supportive of people who are Transgender as that really makes a difference. Melissa goes out down there with several girls some of whom I know on Facebook Amy and Alexis. I actually met Alexis back in 2011 at Diva Las Vegas and we have stayed in touch on Facebook and of course I also follower her blog. We both have blogs at WordPress which offers free blogs, you can pay money for more space and services but for what I do the free one is way more then I needs. Okay one more picture of me and Melissa.

If you are looking to start a blog I would recommend this one as it is easy to use and you can use Word to type it out so spelling is correct and then upload it right from Word. Now you may be thinking what could you wright that people would want to read and I will tell you. My blog started off as basically a diary for myself, I didn’t want to keep stuff on my computer that family, friends or my roommates might see. I never thought anyone would even find it much less read it but they did and do, the great thing about the internet. The only bad part is remember that what you put online is always out there someplace and never goes away. My first web page, before there were blogs was at Geocities, some of you that are old enough may remember them. They were bought out and shut down at least 10 years ago maybe 15 so they are not around anymore but my web pages still show up in Google, Bing and several other search engines and include the pictures I posted, if you click on the link it will say web page not found but still visible on their search engines so never post anything you don’t want the world to see forever.

Mikaela and I got to talk, she started a new job so her Mikaela time I limited now for a while but she is hoping to get to our Christmas party next weekend that Julie and Trixie are hosting. She is actually spending time with her family for Christmas and like so many of us her family doesn’t know. Here is a picture of Mikaela and me.

Silver also showed up, it has been a while since she has been out so I got to talk with her for a little bit too. Petra and Michele also made it out tonight and they brought one of Michele’s friends named Ninea She seemed really nice and I got a chance to talk with her for a while. she told me I reminded her of one of her friends, my cheekbones and eyes which I took as a compliment as who doesn’t like being told that you look like a female, her friend on the other hand my not view it the same if she heard it. Roxy even showed up after she got off work.

By 9 the bar was so busy with so many people that you really couldn’t play pool anymore and as I said the other group was there and a lot of them mostly the woman had dressed up, the theme looked mostly like cats as several of them had cat ears and tails and of course a lot of corsets. It was pretty cool that they do parties like this. I of course had to wish Poo a happy birthday. It is nice as we have good interaction with the other group, they actually have a couple transgender members in their own group so I think that make it easier for them to relate to us.

Mikaela and Melissa had to leave as they were meeting people at CC Slaughters to go dancing so we said our goodbyes. Rose and Diane also made it out tonight and it was great to see them again. Had a chance to talk with them for a while. Diane is back at work which is nice, she had a car wreck a few months back and was hurt and not able to work which is always hard but she is doing better now which is wonderful.

It was a wonderful night and we had a good group out I think 12 and the Karaoke group must have has 30+. I got to talk with Heather, Victoria and Michelle from their group for a while and of course got hugs which is always nice. I think we should always give hugs as they are shown to improve health. Now I had planned on not staying out to late tonight as I didn’t get much sleep last night but before I knew it, it was almost 12:30 and I knew it was time to call it a night so I paid my bill, wished everyone a Merry Christmas and left for home.

One last picture, Mikaela took this of me. In case I don’t get a chance to blog before Christmas I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and consider this my big Christmas hug to all of you.

Thanks for reading.

Holiday party so much fun

Well tonight was our 2013 Holiday Party, Trixie and Julie opened there home tonight to host our party this year. This is me and one of our beautiful host Julie and I really want to thank them both for such an awesome night.

Well the party started at 7 so my plan was to leave home by 6 as that would give me time to get there in case I got lost so I started getting ready at 4:15 as I wanted to enjoy my time getting ready. Well it actually took me till 6:20 to be ready to leave but I think the time was worth it. Well it worked out just right as I arrived right at 7.

Now remember I have never been here before and it was dark outside so I parked on the street and walked up to the house pretty sure it was the right one but you really never know till someone opens the door. Well I rung the door bell and as I waited I thought back to the first winter gala we had when Marla and her date went to the wrong house as Kathy and Mandie’s neighbor was also having a party that night. I was so relieved when Laura opened the door.

Laura had on this beautiful full length dress she got at Nordstrom Rack. It was so pretty and she got such a good deal, I must go shopping there and see what I can find. I had to get a picture with Laura. Well I got inside and there were already a lot of people there. The house was so beautiful inside and so much wonderful food set out.

Inside I talked with Trixie and Julie our hosts for a few minutes and thanked them for hosting our party, it is nice to have parties like this as it gives us all a chance to talk and get to know each other better or catch up on what is new with our friends in a more relaxed atmosphere.

Well I walked around for a bit and talked with the girls that were there and I know I am going to miss people and I appologise now if I leave you out. Cassandra, Teresa, Petra, Sophia, Lorna, Sarah, Cristine, Bobby, Stephanie, Victoria, Peggy, Jennie Jan, Lynn, and Amber were already there. I talked with Cassandra for a little while in the kitchen before I went into the living room to sit for a while, yes I had my 4″ heels on which I love and are very cute but they are not made for being on your feet all the time and I knew if I wanted to keep my shoes on all night I would have to take breaks. Peggy was in the living room which was awesome as it gave me a chance to talk with her. She doesn’t get out as much lately so it is always good to spend time with her. Next time I need a pedicure I will have to see if she wants to go with me. Well we talked for a while and got caught up on what is new.

Mikaela showed up and brought her girlfriend Lucy, this was the first time I have met Lucy and she seems really nice and is totally accepting of Mikaela. It was nice to talk with her and get to know her. Well Mikaela, Lucy and I walked out to the garage where Julie and Trixie had a pool table set up and several girls were playing pool plus a few were watching basketball.

Well Laura was out here so we had to get a picture of the three of us, me on the left, Mikaela in the middle and Laura on the right. We actually took a lot of pictures as all three of us had camera and wanted picture so poor Lucy was handed one camera after another as we got pictures. We probably could have just taken one set and e-mailed them to each other but it was fun to pose for the pictures.

We talked for a while then I went back into the house and got some food which was so good and went over and sat on the couch and talked with Peggy, Teresa and Victoria for a while. All the girls looked so good and most of them had on Black dresses, it was almost like someone sent out an e-mail to wear black but then again a classic little black dress is hard to beat.

Well Kim showed up which was awesome and I was really looking forward to seeing her tonight one of the reasons I picked the dress I did as I wanted to look pretty for her and she also had on a black dress and heels and looked so pretty. I just had to get a picture with my sweetie what a cute picture and a cute couple we make. Well we went into the living room and sat and talked with Peggy, Chris, Roxy, Victoria & Teresa for a while it was so fun, just sitting around having good conversation. We talked about New Year’s Eve and what we should do and we decided we would go to Sweethome that night to ring in the New Year. I am looking forward to it although I probably won’t make it to Midnight. What better way to bring in the New Year then with friends. Now Kim had gotten up really early this morning so she didn’t stay late so when she was ready to leave I walked her out to her car which she had had to park down the street.

Later on Victoria Sinclair showed up with several girls she did makeovers on, she runs Over the Rainbow Transformations. She is actually doing some transformation videos for online so she also had some of the crew doing the videotaping there. This is why Kim had gotten up so early today as she is doing the hair for the video so I guess she is a movie star now. Victoria had on a really cute dress and her hair was perfect and yes my Kim did her hair. Rose, Diane, Cassie, Samantha, Sasha, Brenda and I now there are more I have missed were there.

Now I had planned on only staying till midnight and of course we all know how well that worked. I got talking with Peggy and Julie and the time just passed so fast and before I knew it, it was after 1 am. Well it was time to go and I told Samantha I would give her a ride home so she didn’t have to take a cab as she lives pretty much on my way home. Well I didn’t get home till about 2 am which is way later then I had planned to be out but it was such a fun night, I can’t thank Julie and Trixie enough for doing the party. We are lucky as we have people in the group that will do this for us such as Cassandra and Peggy, Kathy and Mandie, and now Trixie and Julie you are all awesome friends thank you.

Now I must include one more picture, Mikaela took this of me trying to look sexy Just can’t seem to pull it off but still a cute picture. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Years.

Christmas shopping as Susan

Well it was the night before Christmas Eve or in other words December 23 and I had the chance to go out as Susan and as I had some Christmas shopping left to do yes I am a procrastinator. I thought what better way than to go as Susan. Now I have gone shopping before as Susan by myself and even gone to the mall but this is the biggest mall in Oregon and also the busiest and it is only two days before Christmas so you know they will be packed. Now I was also planning on going out afterwards for a bit as several of the girls were going to a bar to watch Monday night football so I had to bridge the gap between casual wear suitable for shopping and something a little nicer for going out. I chose my grey sweater dress and did my makeup a little more natural. Well I was ready to leave home by 4:30 yes I got off work early. Now with rush hour traffic it took me an hour to get there, I went to Clackamas Town Center.

I got there at 5:30 and parked by Nordstrom’s and went in. I had to park a ways out and walk as there were a lot of cars there. Once inside my first thought was that I needed something to eat as I had not ate yet so could get out as Susan earlier so I went out into the mall and started down towards the food court which is right by the movie cinema. I looked around and decided to get something at Panda Express as I needed something I could eat with a fork so I didn’t mess up my lipstick. I had to stand in line with about 10 other people till I could give them my order and then stand in line again to get my food yes they were busy. I got my food and almost every table was taken so I sat at a small table on the edge of the mall which was great for people watching.

After I was done eating I went down to J.C. Penny’s which is at the far end of the mall and walked around checking out the clothes, shoes, interment apparel and dresses, they did not have many dresses though. It was fun just walking around and looking at all the wonderful things. I spent maybe 30 minutes here before heading back out into the mall, so many people were walking around. I walked back to the middle of the mall and went into Macy’s and checked out their dress selection and then browsed there cosmetic counter. Several of the ladies asked me if I needed any help which was nice but I just told them I was looking for now and they said let them know if I needed anything.

From here I went to Sears at the other end of the mall and again checked out the clothes, Dresses, interment apparel and shoes, this was actually one of the reasons I wanted to come here as Susan. When I was here last week shopping as my male self I noticed they had a sale on leather boots with 4″ heels, now I have a pair of boots which I actually wore tonight but they are not leather and not the best quality and I thought that would be a great Christmas present for Susan but Susan would need to try them on. So I found a 10 Medium which was the biggest size they had and sat down to try them on. Now I did get my foot in them and they were only a little tight so I thought they would work but I could not get them to zip up over my ankles. Turns out I not only have big feet but big ankles. I was a little disappointed but then again I was here shopping.

Well I went back into the mall and looked around a bit and came across a gift place selling little glass shapes, now as I said I had some Christmas shopping to finish. I needed some small gifts for several ladies I work with and I thought this would be a nice gift idea so I picked out 4 of them all different but cute and bought them as gifts for my co-workers the whole time thinking to myself what would they say if they knew I had bought their gifts while out dressed as a woman.

Well with my gifts in hand I went back to Nordstrom’s and browsed their cosmetic counter also and the same thing several of the ladies working there asked if they could help me. I was tempted to say yes as I would love to go and get a makeover, I have done that twice before many years ago but I said no and just looked around. Well I left and walked back out to my car and left.

I stopped at Walmart next as I needed a new mascara and some panty hose. Panty hose are the strangest items sometimes you can wear a pair many times before you get a run and others well you look at them wrong and they run. Yes the last 5 times I have gone out I have ruined a pair of panty hose each time. Last Friday a brand new pair and somehow I got a run on the top of my upper leg. I have nit figured out how I did that but needless to say I needed some for Friday and Saturday night. Walmart was also really busy but it was still fun.

It was about 7:45 when I left there and went to meet my friends at 52 street sports bar. I got there at 8 and went in just in time to see about the last 10 minutes of the football game but then for me it as more about being out then the game. Cassandra, Jan, Lynn, Samantha, Cristine, Bobby, Chris, Roxy and Petra were all there and I even met a GG named Michele that was playing pool with the group. It was a lot of fun. I had one drink and watched the end of the game which was probably the best part, two great plays. Then we sat and talked for a bit well till about 9:30 when I had to call it a night as I had to work early the next morning, boy work cuts into my Susan time but it also is what buys Susan cute things so I guess it is a necessary thing.

Well I left and got home just before 10, what a fun night it was.

Thanks for reading and I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas.

Friday before Christmas with friends

Well it is the Friday before Christmas and it has been a busy week between work and of course Christmas shopping. Yes I spent a couple evenings after work out shopping even though I had most of my shopping done I just love going to the malls and looking around. Now I know what you are all thinks but no it was not Susan that went as I went right from work. Susan will get her time shopping for the after Christmas sales. I even went to Clackamas Town Center which I have not been to since last year when I had my bad experience which I blogged about and in no way had nothing to do with me not going there. It just happens to be the mall farthest away from me but I have always gone there at Christmas. I had a great time and picked up some last minute gifts. Well anyway with all the rushing around I was looking forward to a fun night with my friends as Susan.

Well I started getting ready about 5 with hopes of being out the door by 6:30 but as Susan takes longer getting ready a part of being Susan I enjoy it was almost 7 when I left home. I got there about 7:20 and found a parking spot right in front. Cassandra, Chris, Bobby and Cristine were already there, they were talking about an issue the group had, the issue is not important here for my blog and I am not going into it except for a gentle reminder that people judge you not only on your behavior and the way you act but also on the people you associate so it is always a good idea to present yourself well and as a proper lady when out and make sure that the people you are with do the same.. In this case it was not members of our group or even the transgender community but non TG friends of our group. Well we didn’t dwell on this for long and soon we were talking about much more important things.

It was good to see Cassandra out as this is her busy time of year so it is hard for her to fit Cassandra in and we all know how hard that is when you can’t be who you are. Well we all ordered dinner and had great time talking. It wasn’t long and more of our group showed up, Samantha, Cloe, Roxy, Kim, Jan, Lynn, Sasha, Diane Rose and a few others that I can’t remember their name sorry. I promise I will talk with you more nest time and get to know you better. It was good to see some of the girls out that don’t get out much. Actually it was pretty busy here last night so it was going to be a fun night as we have really good interaction with all the people who come here which is one of the things I love about this place. They all look at us as just another customer and friend and not transgender, we are accepted as a person. What a great group of people that come here if only everyone was like this what a wonderful world it would be.

It was so great to see Kim out with the group again, we had a chance to talk, funny as I love spending time with her as Susan just as much as I do as my male self. It was such a wonderful night. It was getting close to time for Karaoke so we were all looking forward to that but this also meant it was getting late and so Kim had to leave which was sad so I walked her out to her car.

Rachael also was able to come out for a little while although she did come as her male self. This is the first time I have ever met her as her male self, I didn’t recognize her at first till she told me. Now getting a close look at her I could see Rachael but just running into her I wouldn’t have known, now I guess if we spent some time together I would have noticed something familiar about her and wondered where I knew her from but I am not sure I would have been able to make the connection. This is what I hope would be the same for me.

Well Karaoke started and yes I did seriously think about singing tonight as I really love Christmas music and I know most of the songs so I think I could sing some of them okay I still just couldn’t get past the fear of singing in front of people which makes no sense as I am not afraid to be Susan in front of them. The two songs I thought about singing were “White Christmas” and “There is no place like home for the Holiday’s” which are two of my favorite songs. Any way the Karaoke was great and Chris, Lynn, Samantha, Cloe and Sasha all sang and did great and yes there were a lot of Christmas songs sang so was happy.

Well Cassandra had to leave early which is unusual for her when she is out as her and I are usually the last to leave but again this is a busy time of year so we all understood. Actually most stayed till after midnight so that was pretty good. Well by then our group started to wide down but there were actually more people showing up so I think the amount of people here actually grew which is good as it is always nice to see the place busy for a couple reasons. One we want Paul to be successful as it is a great place to come but also it shows that our group does not keep people away or affect business.

Well it was late now Chris had left and it was just Rose, Diane, Sasha and me left. I had paid my bill but sat and talked with them for a whole as it gave me a good chance to talk with them. I love when we have big groups out but it is also nice in smaller groups as you can talk easier. It was just a really fun night. I think it was about 1:30 when the 4 of us left. What a fun night.

Thanks for reading and as it is my blog I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Years and the best of all Holiday Season.

A cold Friday night with friends

Well it has been another long week and this week has been cold, the last few days our highs have been right around freezing or just a little above with night time temperatures in the low 20’s and today we got snow. I have about 3 inches at my house and tonight the temperatures should be into the teens. Now for you not familiar with Portland Oregon snow here in the valley is not a common thing, I think this is the most we have got for several years and the cold is just as rare. Now normally for me this is not a big thing as I love snow well my male side, he would just put on boots, hat and a heavy coat ad he is fine. Susan now is a different story, she likes dresses and heels and well a heavy coat hides the outfit, so yes I am going out in a sweater dress and heels, open toed heels so not thrilled about the cold and snow but what is a girl to do.

Well I got all ready and was ready to leave, now I had to drive a couple miles on side street that were covered with snow and ice again not a big concern for my male self but it is for Susan. One the risk of an accident goes up in this kind of weather not to mention getting stuck or sliding off the road. I can just see myself walking back home in the snow in a dress and heels if I got stuck, needless to say I was extra careful. I got to Sweet Home and there was one spot left in the parking lot which was nice as the lot was mostly clear. I only had to walk on a little snow that was packed down. Had I had to park on the street I would have had to walk through some snow about an inch or so deep and my poor pretty toes would have been frozen.

Well inside were Chris and Roxy, looks like the weather may keep people away. Well it didn’t matter as I was out and looking forward to a fun night. Now I knew it was cold as Chris had on blue jeans and he almost always wear shorts, as a matter of fact I am not sure I have ever seen him in blue jeans. Of course inside it was nice and warm except when the door would open and you could feel the rush of cold air which dropped to the floor and found my feet, yes open toed heels are not warm but they sure look cute and that is what counts. Well I ordered dinner from Jodi, she only works a couple hours on Friday nights which is sad as she really is awesome as is all the employees here and Paul the owner, such a great place to come to.

Well Samantha and Cloe showed up and they brought dates which was cool. Now I am really bad at name so I tried really hard to remember their name one was David and the other I can’t remember, blonde moment I guess. I love being blonde as that is such a better excuse when I forget something then blaming it on my age.

Laura and Petra also showed up so we had a pretty good turnout. It was great to see them both as it has been a few weeks since they have been out on a Friday night and I have not been able to make it out during the week. Cristine and Bobby also showed up so we had about 10 from our group there. A little later Monica and Raven showed up and it has been a while since they have been out on a Friday night so it was good to see them and talk to them. For a cold snowy night we had a better turnout than I thought we would.

Also Rachel and her partner Heather showed up, Rachel is the one that got us coming here as she talked to Paul about our group being kicked out of the P-Club and he invited us here, and then she contacted me on Facebook about this place. Now we have been coming here since August of 2012 so about 15 months and yes I did look back through my blog to find out when we first came here one of the many advantages of keeping a blog. It was nice to talk with the for a bit and it turns out they don’t live that far from me and actually Heather works really close to where I live. Danielle was also there with her partner Kelly. It is funny as I had met them all first at the P-Club so even with what happened at the P-Club I did manage to keep some friends I met there. It was great to chat with them for a bit.

Well it got later and it was time for Karaoke and yes Laura, Chris and Samantha all got up and sang and did great. Karaoke is always fun but tonight well I liked it just a little more as several of the people sang Christmas songs and yes I love Christmas music, I will admit it. Now they also sang a couple fun more none traditional Christmas songs like “Walking round in woman’s underwear” and “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” now if you have not heard these songs they are really cute. Now Chris had never hear I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas and he loved it and I sang along with it from the table of course as I know the words to that song. I put links to them so you can listen to them. Some more cute songs they didn’t sing is that I love are “I yust go nuts at Christmas” & “Grandma got run over by a Reindeer“. It really was a fun night.

Well it got late and as it has been a long week I was ready to call it a night, now my need to go home to bed was at odds with the fact I was going to have to go out to a cold car. Well I finally paid my bill and put my wrap on and braved the cold weather. It was about 12:30 and was about 25 degrees out so it took a little while to get my car warm so by the time I got home my feet weren’t frozen anymore. Maybe the open toed heels were not the right choice tonight.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.

Friday night before Christmas with friends

Well I would like to start off by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas as this will be my last blog before Christmas. I know not everyone celebrates Christmas and if you don’t please just skip over this part.

Well it has been another long week and Susan could not get out during the week so I was really looking forward to tonight and spending a fun Friday night with friends. It is funny how much I look forward to this especially if it is the only night that week that I can be Susan. With the holidays, work and Family right now precious little time for Susan buy any time is better than no time.

I started getting ready a little early as I wanted to be to Sweethome early. Cassandra and Victoria talked to our attorney Beth Allen and had information for us, they are our two contact people in the case we have against the P-Club. I got to Sweethome by 6:30 and Chris and Samantha were the only ones there. It really wasn’t long before others from our group started to show up. I had forgot tonight the Karaoke group was doing a rocky horror picture show theme not that I have anything I could have worn for that any way. Actually I have only seen the movie once way back when I was in High School. Their group started to show up and almost all the girls had corsets on and even a couple of the men, the girls looked awesome. I have a red corset but it is not a really good one, maybe I should see about finding a black one that fits right.

Well the six of us that are involved in the complaint with the P-Club were finally all there so we went and sat at another table and Cassandra and Victoria went over what Beth our attorney told them and I am not going into details on this as it is open case but the case is proceeding and the group is in agreement on how we want to proceed which is taking our attorneys advice which only makes sense in a case like this. I am still a little nervous about having to give my real name when this goes to court but it is something I feel I have to do as this is too important to not take a stand. Any way we talked about 30 minutes and then joined back with our group.

The club was getting packed by now which is always so much fun as everyone there is always so nice and friendly. It really is a great place to go for an evening out. Chris had brought little gifts for everyone in the group which was so sweet of him, thanks so much Chris you are an awesome friend. We all sat around and talked and had a wonderful time, even Roxy stayed till midnight which for her is late.

Michelle and Kim showed up, Michelle has been coming out so much lately and it is so wonderful to see. She was our groups Member of the month this month as she has been so active with the group. Kim also came which is always wonderful as she is so supportive of all us girls and just so much fun to be around. Her and Chris were going to sing a Karaoke song together but never got a chance. We really do have a wonderful group of friends in our group. Heather from the Karaoke group came over and hung out with us for a while; she really is nice and had on this really cute corset in black.

Well karaoke was going and Chris sang of course and did great as always. Blue came over and was talking to me; well it was her turn to sing so she talked me into going up with her to sing. Silly me thought I would just be in the back singing behind her but it turns out they had two microphones so we were both singing. It was a little scarry6 but I did have a fun time and I would never have done it on my own. We sang “Sitting on the dock of the Bay” which is one of my favorites and as such a song I actually know most of the words to.

It was a really fun night and even a couple of our group dressed for the Rocky Horror picture show, Jan and Cristine both had on French maids outfits and looked really good. Everyone had such a fun night and as always the nights go by so fast. Soon it was 1 am and time to leave, well those of us who were still there. We said our goodbyes and wished each other Merry Christmas. What a fun night.

Thanks for reading

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and be safe.

Fourth annual Winter Gala

Well tonight was our fourth annual Winter Gala, Kathy, mandie & Danielle open their home each year to host this for our group, how awesome is that. I got to their home about 6:30 and there were already girls there. I had been looking forward to this party for week as it was a good chance to wear my red dress which I love but never really get a chance to wear it as it is not the type of dress I would wear out to a bar. It is cool as they do a donation for the local food bank each year so of course I brought a bag of food.

Now they had an open bar with a really cute bar tender all dressed in red so as we were both in red I had to get a picture. She is really awesome and has been at the party every year and I still don’t know her name. Actually I am sure I did know her name but as I only see her once a year I can’t remember it and would have felt bad asking her what her name was so I still don’t know.

They had so much food and it was all so good, they really do a wonderful job hosting this party. Yes I did eat more than I should have but did try to eat more of the healthy food but after all it is a Holiday party and that means eating too much. We had a really good turnout, several of us tried to count but with people moving around we never did get a good count but there were at least 45 there. I did make a real effort to try to talk with everyone and I think I did.

Peggy was there which was awesome as she has not been able to come out much do to work. It was so much fun to talk with her as she really is a wonderful friend. We have gone and got pedicures together before and had a blast. Maybe after the first of the year we can go again and get pedicures. I really love getting pedicures and going with a friend to get one makes it so much better.

Amy was also there and of course I had to get a picture with her, actually we got a couple together but the one I am posting is the one I got her to stand on the first step of the stairs so I am not taller than her. What an awesome picture. It really is fun to have parties like this as you really get to socialize more and get to know each other better

Several of us had our cameras out and took so many pictures; I took almost 80 as we really wanted to make sure that everyone that was there got in the pictures. Cassandra was having fun and took several pictures of our hands and feet well actually out nails and heels. I am sure at some point she will post to the group with a guess whose feet or hand they are. I am really looking forward to seeing all the pictures as you always miss something that happens at a Party as you can’t be every place at once. It also is a great way to remember what a fun night you had.

I was talking to one of the girls about pictures and I was telling her how I have over 1,500 pictures of Susan on my computer and only one of my male self. Turns out as Susan I love to have my picture taken but my male self avoids the camera as much as he can.

Kim also showed up and she is so nice. She had on this really cute black dress and looked really nice. She was so excited as she had her nails done for the party and had this really pretty reddish color and yes I did take a picture of our hands with our nails. It was nice to sit and talk with her as she really is nice and treats all us girls so wonderful.

Alicia also made it to the party and we talked for a bit. It is nice seeing her get out more as there was about a year where she couldn’t get out. Looking through my pictures I did get one of her but never thought to get one of us together yes another blonde moment. Will have to make sure and do that next time she is out. By the way one reason I don’t post all of the pictures is I won’t post any pictures that I did not ask first if they minded, and it is not so much they say no but rather I forget to ask.

Christy also made it to the party so I got to spend some time talking with her. She also is very nice as really all the girls in the group are. Christy also had on a really cute black dress, I think black was the theme of the night as that was the popular color but then the classic little black dress really is a beautiful look and I almost wore my little black dress. I really have made some really wonderful friends here in the group.

Victoria was her also and she is so excited as she leaves for Thailand in 30 days for her SRS. We talked a little about this and she is counting down the days like a little girl and you can just see how happy she is now. We are all so happy for her and we are all wishing her our best. Teresa was also there; she went to Thailand last December and missed the party so this was fun to have her here. She is going to Thailand with Victoria for at least part of the time which is really nice of her.

Jenn also made it and she had on this really pretty red dress and yes as we both wore red I had to get a picture with her plus as she is just a bit taller than me I don’t feel so tall. We could almost be sisters of course that would make me the older sister. Jenn is awesome and so much fun to talk with.

Bobbie and Pam were also at the Party. Bobbie had her first facial surgery the beginning of the week so it was awesome they could make it. She still had a little bruising on her neck but looked awesome considering the surgery. They are in town for a couple more weeks as she has I think two more surgeries in the next couple weeks. Pam her wife is so wonderful and so supportive of her which is really awesome. I got a chance to talk with them for a while and really are a great couple. Just goes to show that there are woman out there that are okay with Transgender. Actually our group has many GG’s that are awesome and so supportive, Pam, Peggy, Kim, Kathy just to mention a few.

Dana also made it she has been getting out more which is wonderful as she lives a couple hours south so it is hard for her to get out. Got a chance to talk with her for a while. She is a lot of fun to hang out with and she loves to dance.

This is a picture of me with Shannon at least I think that was her name. I have met her once before and she actually looks like Jennifer Aniston from Friends a little at least I think so. I had to include this picture as I thought it was such a cute picture, I usually don’t post a lot of close ups but I just liked this one. Only chatted with her briefly and I wish we had more time to talk as she seams really nice but I don’t know a lot about her

Monica also was at the party and I think this is the first time I have seen her out in over a year so it was nice to talk with her and find out what is new. Lorna, Sophia and their son also made it and I really didn’t get a chance to talk much with them which is a shame as they are really nice and Lorna always has great stories. It is funny as during the party I was pretty sure I had talked with everyone but going back over the pictures I realized I didn’t which is a shame

In all it was such a fun night and I was sad to see it come to an end. I want to thank Kathy, Mandie and Danielle for such an awesome wonderful party and all their hard work and opening their home for us. You 3 are awesome and I am happy to call you friends.

The night before the night before Christmas at the P-Club

Well I kind of stole my blog title from a Hallmark Christmas movie I watched the other day about a young boy who wishes his family could have a real family Christmas together. I thought it was fitting as that is what our group had last night; our little family got together and had a wonderful time. Peggy baked Christmas Cookies and brought them for everyone and they were really good, Thanks Peggy. We even did a gift exchange, those who wanted brought a gift value was set at $3 but it wasn’t about the gift or the dollar amount it was the thought and the fun of giving. I think that is what makes Christmas so nice, sharing time with loved ones.

Well I took a little extra time getting ready tonight as for me the getting ready is so relaxing and just as much a part of being who I am. I know that may be hard for some to understand especially woman who have do their makeup every day and have for years but I look forward to the getting ready just as much. I guess it is kind of like an artist, they enjoy the creating of the painting as much as the finished painting. Now I realize if I was living full time and doing this every day I may have a little different look on it but probably not. Any way it was fun as I had the Christmas music playing which is probably why it took a little longer as I kept finding myself singing along.

Well I got to the P-Club about 7:15 and Cassandra, Peggy, Roxy and Chris were already there. It was nice to see Peggy out again. Peggy had spent the day baking Sugar cookies and decorating them. Each one were wrapped in plastic with a bow tied on, she must have spent all day doing this. She brought a big basket to give to all the girls there and had some left over, how sweet was this. What a wonderful gift idea and they were so good.

Well we all wondered how many would show up as it was 2 days before Christmas and people may still be out finishing their last minute Christmas shopping. It was probably about 8:30 when more of our group started to show up; in the end we had a good turnout. I am guessing 20 of us were there, some that come out all the time and some that only get out every once in a while. I off course ordered a salad for dinner again as I am still trying to eat healthier and hopefully lose some weight.

We had a new T-girl (Jennifer) from Northern California stop in, seems she had read my blog about going to the P-Club and since she was in the area she came by. It was nice to meet her and it turns out this was her first time out ever. She seemed pretty relaxed for her first time and she looked really good. I remember my first time out I was scared to death and probably looked like a kind playing with makeup. We all greeted her and had a great time talking with her. Hopefully she will be able to come back again and spend more time with us. It is funny how the internet has made such an impact on our lives; we can literally meet and talk with anyone in the world. As a matter of fact Google has a web page called Google translate and you can type something in and translate to almost any language so you can literally talk with anyone in any language.

It was a good night and I even played shuffle board, Peggy and I played Cassandra and Kathryn and then we played Cassandra and Cristine. We lost both games but had a lot of fun. The shuffle board table really needs to be cleaned and redone as there are spots that are so dry the puck just stops but as much as I would like to blame our losing one the table Cassandra was on a hot streak. She could do nothing wrong last night, I guess every once in a while the stars just line up right and last night was Cassandra’s night. She won every game she played be it shuffle board or pool.

It was now time to do our gift exchange; those who wanted to participate brought a wrapped gift of $3 as it was not the dollar amount but the thought behind it. When this was first brought up I thought how easy it would be to get a gift, maybe a little makeup or something like that but then I started thinking, I know I am blonde and should not think. We have some admirers that are male and might show up and participate so then I figured the gift should be gender neutral, well anyway I found this cute little candle in a glass jar with a little Santa hanging on the front and thought it was just perfect. Anyway we all drew numbers and then picked in order. When it was your turn you could pick a gift or take someone else’s, if you took someone else then they picked another gift. Barb who went first at the end got the choice of keeping hers or trading with someone else. It was so much fun, what a great idea Cassandra had. Everyone had a blast and really enjoyed this.

We had a great time and I got a chance to talk with all my friends a little. What a wonderful night as I got to spend it with my friends. Christmas time can get so busy and it is easy to get caught up in it and lose track of what is important, people. Of all the presents I will get this year and in years past it is the people, friends and loved ones in our lives which are the best presents and greatest blessing in our live and all of you I have met either in person or on line I am thankful for. You are my most treasured present.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, may it be filled with love, joy and happiness.
