My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday night at Escape

Another Saturday night and we are going to the Escape. I always look forward to when I can go out with my friends. I started getting ready early as I wanted to be there by as I knew Cassandra was going early. Now I started my makeup and tonight I wanted to go with a dark wine lipstick so I knew what dress I would be wearing. Now it is always easier getting ready when I know what I will wear and how I will do my makeup before I start. It only took me about an hour to get ready and be on my way.

I got to the Escape just before 6 and was able to park right in front of the door. Cassandra was already there. Now of course I had to get a selfie tonight. Cassandra and I sat and talked while we waited for our dinner. Of course, the big topic was our dinner cruise this coming Saturday. I am trying to figure out the best place to park and what time to get there. I don’t think they let you board till 6:30 and they leave at 7. It will be cold out Saturday night near freezing so I really don’t want to get there to early and have to stand outside as I will be in a dress and heels. It will be a fun night though, I think we have 20 going. This is actually something I have wanted to do for a few years and never got to it. There are a couple parking lots close so it should be fine.

Laura M and Kate also showed up, it was good to see them. I got talking with Laura and she is going to Diva Las Vegas this coming year. It is official the dates are April 15th to 20th. Her and Kate are going to drive down and get there on the 15. Laura used my computer and booked a room at the Four Queens so Cassandra, Julie, Veronica, Laura, Kate and myself will all be staying there. It is going to be so much fun.

The surprise of the night was when Sandy walked in. I have not seen her in a couple years, she is from up by Seattle also and just Wednesday night when we had Dinner I was talking with Amy about her. It was great to see her again and talk with her, she is really nice. Now she was in town working and then came out to spend a little time with us. She was only here about an hour as she had to drive home tonight. Julie will be bummed she missed her tonight.

Lorie also showed up and another girl so we had a good turnout again tonight. We also talked a little about Embers and also our Mexican cruise next October. There is still time to sig up so check out our groups web page and there is a link to the cruise there for more information. Cassandra say we have 29 so far signed up and they are not all from our group, only about half and some are wives or significant others. We have t-girls from Washington, California, the Midwest that are going. Now this is not a t-girl cruise as there are about 3000 passengers on the ship but we want to see how many we can get. It would be so much fun if we could get 40 to 50 t-girls to go. It does cost a little more than the normal vacation but it will be worth it. If you have ever thought about it or just want some information please please check out our web page.

It really was a fun night out with my friends. With the Holidays coming fast life will get busy and that means time as Susan will be a little harder to get and that just makes it that much more special. It really is hard to believe it is December already. Thanks for reading and have a great Holiday Season.

Be sure and keep up with my most recent times going out. By the way this is my 992 blog documenting my life as Susan

Saturday trip to the nail salon then to the Escape for a fun evening with friends.

Well first we have 16 cabins booked and 26 people going so far on our Mexican Cruise in October of 2018. Also Last Sunday I did make it out as Susan to Starbucks for a couple hours to write my last blog, now onto today.

I had planned to get out early, get my nails done and then go meet Cassandra at the Escape to watch the Baseball playoffs but as usual things came up and I got a late start. I didn’t get home till 4 so it would be a rush today. I called the Dream Nails to see if I could get in to get my nails done and so there would be no confusion I asked for Anna. Well it turns out she is on vacation so I just asked if I could come in at 5 and I would be surprised who gets to do my nails, so far everyone that I have had do my nails have done a wonderful job. Now it was a rush to get ready and of course the hardest part, what to wear. Something casual enough to go to the nail salon but also nice enough for a Saturday night out. I went with a skirt and top and I wore my ankle boots to the nail salon and took some nice heels to change into after. I was all ready and on my way by 4:40 well almost. I got to the end of my street and realized I forgot my bracelets and ring so I turned around and ran home real fast.

I got to the nail salon at 4:45 yes, it is a short drive and went in, they were not busy at all only one other lady there. Cathy greeted me when I walked in and said she was ready so I sat right down, Cathy has done my nails before. I sat down and Cathy started on my nails and of course we talked a little, she asked me if I had a boyfriend? I just told her I wasn’t looking for a boyfriend and left it at that, I didn’t go into the fact I am not interested in men, just woman. I really do enjoy my time at the nail salon. Now I have always wondered what they think of me here and by that do they think I am full time. Well as Cathy worked on my nails she asked what color I would like and I just told her the clear pink I have been getting. She asked if I didn’t like color and I told her I would love color but it just wouldn’t work at work, that was why I only got color polish when I was on Vacation. She then asked in they didn’t allow color polish where I work so I went on and told her I only dress this way part time and at work I am male and it would be hard to explain color on my nails.

Cathy finished filling my nails with acrylic, shaping them and filing them smooth then told me to go wash my hands. I came back and sat down and Cathy had a different polish on her table and said she wanted to try a different color as the one I was wearing gets a little yellowish after a couple weeks. I looked at it and it did have a pink color to it so I told her I would try it on my pinky like I did a few times back. Cathy smiled at me and said no it would look fine on my nails and I don’t know why I just agreed. She started with my right hand and as I watched the color on from the bottle was pink but it didn’t look pink on my nails so I just let her go. She finished the first coat and for the second coat it was more of a clear color with a pink color to it. After the second coat she put a clear top coat on. I looked at my nails and it did look like I had a light polish on it and gave my nails a healthy natural look. Cathy asked me how I liked it and I said it looked nice, she told me if I didn’t like it she would remove it and redo it but I told her it was fie I liked it which I do just not sure when I am not Susan what people will think. Now I have had nicely manicured nails a little on the long side for months and have left them shinny for the last month and only one lady at work have said anything so either they haven’t noticed which I doubt or just haven’t said anything. I thanked Cathy as she did a wonderful job on my nails, and left with my pretty nails. By the way they look a little different depending on the light and in certain light they are pink. I will include some pictures in different light.

It was about 5:30 when I left the nail salon and drove to the Escape. I got a parking spot right in front which was lucky as we can no longer park across the street in the parking lot. I went in and Cassandra was already there, she got there about 5 to watch the Baseball playoffs, she is a huge LA Dodgers fan. It is funny as we have several girls in the group how are huge sports fan. We also talked about some of our events coming up, we do have 15 signed up for the Dinner Cruise we are doing in December which will be so much fun and of course our cruise next October, as I said above we have 26 signed up for this so far, and probably 15 are from our group. If you want information on it check out our group cruise page. Our group really is wonderful and we have done so many wonderful things over the years. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without some of them in my life. I would not be the lady I am now without them. Now talking about the cruise and what we would do. We are thinking of going down a few days early and going out in LA first. I also realize I need to get a passport which I should do soon as I don’t want to wait.

Now Michelle was the next one to show up and then Page, Kimberly, and Kate, Kimberly and Kate also got in the conversation on the cruise as they are also going. Now some of the girls started playing pool as the Baseball game was over. Cassandra was happy as the Dodgers won. Cassandra was the big winner at Pool as she won a lot of games of course she is also really good so if you can beat her it is an accomplishment.

Karaoke started and as always it gets a little loud and hard to talk any more. It is fun to listen to some of the singers as some are really good and the other well they at least have the courage to get up and sing and that is something. Lori and a few other girls showed up, our later crowd. It is funny as when o first started going out it had to be dark and most of the time it was 9 pm or later before I would leave my house, now by 9 pm. Now by 9 or 10 I am thinking about going home to bed. I like to think it is because I am so comfortable going out and not because I am getting older.

We had a good turnout and it was great to be out with my friends. I am looking forward to Wednesday night dinner as I am planning on going this week. Next Saturday is the week the group goes down to Salem to hang out with our members down there. I am not sure I will make that as it is an hour drive each way or more. I will go out though even if it is just shopping or a trip to Starbucks.

If you have ever wanted to go on a cruise be sure and check out the one we ae going on, it will be a blast and you can dress as much or as little as you want. Okay I have to ask, do you like the nails and do they look too pink?

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

Nails are done and back at Starbucks

I decided not to call a head and make an appointment and just go to Dream nails as a walk in. As I left Starbucks in my car two people I work with were walking in, I guess I picked the right time to leave. Dream nails is just across the street so I got there just before 9:30 and walked in to get a manicure and pedicure. There was only one other woman there so I didn’t have to wait. Kathy greeted me and told me to pick out a color, Anna was not here yet so I got another lady, I not sure of her name, I think Tina but she was really nice. She started with a pedicure which I was really looking forward to as they are so relaxing. The last pedicure I got really lasted, it was 6 weeks ago and I just started to get a few small chips at the end of one of my toes. the salt scrub, massage and lotion is so wonderful and my legs and feet always feel so wonderful and look awesome afterwards.

Now it did get busier and soon there were 3 ladies getting pedicures, 2 getting manicures and 1 lady getting 1 nail fixed which I can relate too as a few years back I broke an acrylic nail at Diva Las Vegas and nothing was more important at that time then getting it fixed. A few of the ladies got talking and I even got in on the conversation, it was really wonderful. Now it was time to painting my toes and I went with Pompeii Purple again the same color I got last time as I think it is a great summertime color.

Anna and several other girls showed up at 10, Anna I guess comes in later Saturday but then she owns the shop and usually works 7 days a week. It was about 10:10 when she finished my pedicure and my toes looks awesome. Now I wondered what would happen. Usually I call and set up an appointment with Anna to get my nails done so usually after my pedicure I go to Anna for my nails. Well turns out today I stayed with the same lady which was fine. She had me sit there for a few minutes while she did another ladies nail, just gel polish so it only took a about 5 minutes. In the meantime, Anna came over and talked with me which was nice, really all the workers here are wonderful. We talked about her vacation to Las Vegas. The last time I came in that is where she was. It was nice just to chat with her for a while.

Soon the lady doing my nails was done with the other lady and I moved over next to her as she was waiting for her daughter to get done with her nails, I chatted with them briefly. It was relaxing to get my nails done and I really enjoy it. Anna had asked me what polish I wanted and I told her the clear pink which I have been getting but I wanted to do 449 First Kiss on my pinkies. I have got this color before when I was just doing the gel polish. While she was grinding down the acrylic and getting it ready Knee the lady who did my last pedicure brought the polish over but brought 451 Rocken Rose and it was a rose color so I told her I needed the other one and she went and exchanged it.

After she took the top layer of acrylic off she shortened my nails a little and shaped them. It really is a fun experience to have someone else do your nails. The new acrylic came next and then she smoothed them out and cleaned them up. Now it was time for the polish. She started with my left-hand pinky and put the first coat of “First Kiss” on and it did have a pink color to it but I went ahead. She then did the right hand and then back for the second coat and yes, it is a pink color. Now as I said I had this color before on my natural nails and it did not look that pink. On one finger, I may get away with it but there is no way I could do all my fingers this color.

Now with 2 coats on she grabbed the color and asked if I wanted another coat and I said no, that would make it way too bright of a pink so she did the top coat. My nails once again looked awesome although I couldn’t help looking at the pink on my pinkies, it really is a pretty shade for a subtle color. It would be nice to do all my nails this color but as my ale self I just couldn’t get away with it. I am still trying to find a neutral color that I could do that would not be noticeable, but I think that will be hard to do as the point of polish is to be seen.

It was a little after 11 when I was all done and she did an awesome job on my nails. Now I only had a little over an hour before I had to go home and change back to my boring male self so there really wasn’t much time to do anything so it was back across the street to Starbucks where I could hang out with my computer. I got there and they were busy, all but one table in the corner by the door were taken and there was about 6 people in line. I stood in line and waited my turn. Once I ordered my drink I look and the table by the door was still open so I went over and set up my computer and then went and waited for my drink.

It was busy and people just kept coming in to get drinks. It was a good place to sit and people watch while I worked on my computer. It was a fun relaxing time. Now I had been here about 30 minutes when I saw my boss walk in the door, I had my head down and just lowered it more. My boss ordered a drink and then she stood only a few feet away from me waiting for the drink. I just kept my head down, it was only about 5 minutes but it felt like my boss was standing there forever. Once my she left I felt a little better and started people watching again. I spent about 1 ½ hours here before I left and went home. I was glad I got out early this morning. Saturday morning may be my only chance to get out for a while but I will take advantage of it as any Susan time is better than none.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

Don’t forget about our Mexican Cruise in October of 2018, it will be a blast. Here is the actual cruise page.
