My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Friday and the drive from Portland to Palm Springs

It is Friday and we are driving from Portland to Palm Springs to pick Julie up for Diva Las Vegas. Now our plan is to leave at 2am as it is a 16-hour drive maybe more if we it traffic. Of course, this means Susan has to get up at 1 am to get ready as she takes more work. Now add the fact I didn’t go to bed till between 8:30 and 9 so it was a short night, 4 hours of sleep. My phone went off at am and I was up as I will do anything for Susan, she has my male self, wrapped around her little finger and pretty much gets what she wants. It was into the shower, shave, moisturize, do my makeup, dress, jewelry, hair and pack up my overnight bag and I was ready. Time on my phone 1:59 how is that for timing.

I got downstairs and Peggy and Cassandra where already down there. Now the funny part, we had a dead car battery. Seems yesterday packing we had the car doors open so long and that had the lights on inside we drained the battery. This happened a few years back, but that time we moved the car that night and found it out before we went to bed, not this time. So, we had to jump start the car and that took a little while as the battery was really dead plus Cassandra had to do something before we left so yes it was just about 3am when we were on our way, only an hour later then we planned.

Now I know a lot of people ask why I would go through this to get ready and be Susan just to sit in a car for 16 hours on a trip? Well for me it is easy, first I have long red nails. Second it is the fact I am doing the whole trip start to finish as Susan. The only thing I have that is from my male side is my drivers license and a credit card. It is an all Susan trip for 12 days. I know most woman would not worry about there makeup for such a drive but for me I really need the makeup to help with the illusion, I am not saying people don’t know but I want to do everything to look as authentic as possible. I do not want to have people think I am making fun or trying to disrespect woman as I really do hold them in high esteem.

Now it was fun to be traveling with Cassandra who was in male mode and Peggy, it was just like our first trip back in 2010, wow it is hard to believe it was 8 years ago we made the first trip. Cassandra drove for the first 5 hours, I drove the next 5 hours and Cassandra finished the last 6. We did stop for gas a few times, a trip through McDonalds drive through and of course some bathroom breaks. I never really thought about how I was dressed as we made these stops, it was just ordinary daily things any woman would do. As we got close to LA Google maps told us there was heavy traffic through LA and gave us another route to take, only about 8 miles longer but it saved us an hour so our guess was pretty close as we arrived at the house Julie and Trixie had rented in Palm Springs at 7:30pm, 16 ½ hours after we left.

It was great to see Julie and Trixie again. We are staying here tonight and then we will leave Peggy to spend the week with Trixie and Julie will got to Diva Las Vegas with Cassandra and me on Saturday. Trixie and prepared dinner for us which was so nice of them. The 5 of us sat down and had a wonderful dinner and talked for a while. It was so much fun.

It was probably 10 when we called it a night. I was really tired as it had been a long day after only a few hours sleep. I did take a few minutes and write my blog for Friday when I got my nails done for the trip, it was a short blog for 2 reasons, first I really didn’t do much that day and second, I was having a hard tome staying awake. Now Julie is doing breakfast for us at 9am before we leave and we hope to be on the road by 10:30 so my plan is to get up at 8, shower and get dressed, pretty much already accept for makeup and hair. Then after breakfast I will do my makeup and put my hair on. Then we will be off to Las Vegas. A big thanks to Julie and Trixie for letting us stay with them overnight on our way down.

Thanks for reading and be sure and keep up with what’s new on my most recent blog and also my blogs for Diva Las Vegas 2018

Vacation starts getting nails done today

It is Thursday April 12th and my vacation has started. I am getting my nails done today and then over to Cassandra’s & Peggy’s house as we will leave for Palm Springs Friday morning at 2 am. I called yesterday and made an appointment for 12:30 as I had a few things to do in the morning to get ready. I got home a little after 10 and got all my stiff in the car for the trip and then started getting ready. I am so looking forward to the trip and 13 days of being Susan and long pretty nails.

I got to the nails salon about 12:15 and they were packed, 4 woman getting pedicures, 2 manicures, 2 drying their nails and 3 waiting. So glad I made an appointment. Evan with an appointment I still had to wait till 12:45. I really don’t like it when it s this busy as they seem so rushed. Anyway, Anna finely finished the other lady and started on my nails, she did a great job but as I said I could tell she was rushing as there was always 3 or 4 waiting as they came in as fast as they finished someone else. It just wasn’t as relaxing as other times but still fun and of course I had my long pretty nails.

I left the nails salon and drove over to Cassandra’s and Peggy’s, there were loading the car for tomorrow as we are hoping to be on the road by 2am as it is a 26-hour drive. Of course, that means I will have to get up at 1am as it takes an hour to get ready so

it will be a short nigh. We got the car packed and ordered pizza and then watched a couple movies before going to bed about 8:30. Yes it will be a short night. It was a good start to 12 days of being Susan. O so wish I could have my nails like this all the time, 12 days from now when I have to remove them it will be so sad.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what’s new on my most recent blog. Also be sure and read about my vacation to Diva Las Vegas 2018

Saturday before Diva Las Vegas, out at the Escape.

It is the Saturday before Diva Las Vegas and I am going to the Escape tonight to spend some time with my friends. I won’t be out here in Portland with them for a couple weeks. I started getting ready early as I wanted to stop at ULTA and see if they had some self-tanning lotion. Yes, I want a little more of a tan before I go to Las Vegas, something my male side could care less about. Any way I was ready by 4:45 and on my way. I got to ULTA and went in and looked around and found what I wanted. The lady at the checkout complimented me on my nails. Now it has been over 3 weeks since I got my nails done. They really do look good but they are getting pretty long at lest for my male side. I left ULTA and went to the escape and got there about 5:30 and went in and ordered dinner.

It wasn’t long and Kate and Cassandra showed up. It was great to see them again. WE sat around and talked mostly about Diva Las Vegas as we are all going. Kate will get there on Sunday and Cassandra, Julie and I will get there on Saturday. Cassandra, Peggy and I will leave early Friday morning and drive to Palm Springs to drop Peggy off and pick up Julie. It is going to be so much fun. Of course, I will have my long pretty nails. I will get my nails done on Thursday and then it will be 12 days of living as Susan. I was talking about it and Kate is also thinking of getting her nails done, it would be her first time and I know she will enjoy it. I told her when I was going and she might meet me and get her nails done with me. It really would be fun to go to the nail salon with someone. Now there were a couple of ladies and a man with them that came over and talked with us for a while before they left. I really do like meeting and talking with new people.

Jan and Lynn also showed up tonight and it was good to see them also and Michele also was there. Michele is also going to Diva Las Vegas although she will arrive on Monday and only be there till Friday. We have several girls going for their first time, Kate, Laura M. and Michele. I know they will have a fun time. Now I am not sure how many we have going from our group but I do know Melissa and her wife, Laura M, Kate, Brenda, Veronica, Michele, Keri, and of course Julie, Cassandra and myself so we will have at least 11 from Portland in Las Vegas. It really is fun when we have a big group from Portland going.

Now it got busy as it always does as Karaoke started. It was fun but it got loud and was hard to talk. Lorie showed up a little before 10 as she is our late-night girl so we had a good turnout tonight. It was nice to talk with everyone and just enjoy a fun night out with friends. As Susan I am way more social then my male self. It was a good night out. Next will be Thursday when I start my stretch of Susan. Thanks for reading and be sure to keep up with what is new in my life on my most recent blog.

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

Tuesday last day of vacation and the red nails go away.

Tuesday is here the day I have been dreading. I got up early as I had some things I had to do so I was out as my male self with long bright red nails. I took care of what I had to do and then I was going home to become Susan for a few hours more. On the way, I decided to stop at a Starbucks as my male self. I lucked out as the Starbucks I stopped at had all girls working 5 of them. I ordered my drink and then carefully put my credit card in the machine trying to keep my nails as hid as I could. Both girls at the counter must have seen them as they both told me how beautiful they were which they really are. I thanked them, they didn’t seem that surprised by a man with pretty nails. I spent about an hour here before going home to become Susan.

I got home at noon and made the phone call to the nail salon something I was not looking forward to which is strange as I am always looking forward to going to the nail salon. Anna answered and I asked I could get in and she said 3 was good so I had a couple more hours of pretty nails. I then asked her if she could really make my nails look natural and keep the acrylic so as no one could tell and she assured me she could. I still have doubts but I told her that was what I wanted to do. So, I will still have acrylic on my nails I guess just a thinner layer. I was all ready by 1:20 so I figured instead of going early to the nail salon I would go to the Starbucks by my house which is right across the street from Dream Nails and hang out here till a little before 3. I took a quick selfie before leaving the house.

I got to the Starbucks about 1:30 and they were a little busy at least for the middle of the day I thought. The girl who took my ordered remembered me and asked didn’t you use to come in in the evenings, it has been a while. It is nice to be remembered and I said yes and told her I have a nail appointment across the street and had some time to kill.

I got my drink and sat down to start my blog which I will have to finish after my nail appointment and of course I had to get a picture of my nails and how they look now. The Gel Polish on the acrylic held up really well, no chips, scratches or wearing off on the edges. They look just as good as they did 12 days ago, when I got them. I will also post an after picture, I am really wondering about my decision to keep the acrylic. I really hope Anna is right and it will not be noticeable as I go back to work tomorrow. I am hoping that the fact I have kept my nails looking nice and a little long that no one will really pay attention to them. I sent about 1 ½ hours here at Starbuck’s catching up on e-mails and doing a little work. It is a great way to pass time.

I also got a message from a Facebook friend from the east coast, she will be in town the end of the week for work and on Friday she is going to Over the Rainbow for a makeover and wants to go out so she is going to meet me at Sweet Home at 6:30. This will only be her second time going out so it will be fun. I am looking forward to meeting her. I left Starbucks and went to the nail salon just before 3.

They were not busy, I was the only one there so there was no waiting Anna was ready to do my nails. Now as I am leaving the acrylic on Anna just started to grind off the top layer, the red layer. The first bit was the hardest as my red was no longer glossy smooth. The red dust piled up as one nail after another lost its red color. This is always so sad and I guess it would not be if I was putting another color on. Soon all the color was off and she started to grind the acrylic down to a thinner layer. I was kind of amazed and surprised as it really did look like my natural nail, I had my doubts but Anna was right. I guess if you looked really close you would be able to tell the texture of the nail was different.

Now came the big question, Anna asked me if I wanted them shortened and I so wanted to tell her no but I just couldn’t go to work with that long of nails so I said yes cut them down. Now normally she uses nail cutters but she put a little sanding wheel in her grinder and zip the first nail was short. I looked at it and told her that was good and she went right to work on the rest of the nails and soon they were all short or so I thought. A couple tips I discovered. First after having long nails it is hard to judge length and when you have 4 long nails on one hand and one shorter that you are comparing it to it really does look short. I actually left my nails somewhat long and in two week when I go back they will really be long.

Now it was time for the Gel polish and I went back to my clear with a slight pink tint to it. Two coats of that Gel polish and a clear top coat and my nails look awesome and you really can’t tell I have acrylic on them, they look awesome. The whole thing took about 45 minutes but as I said a little on the long side. Here is a picture of them now.

Now I had some things I had to do which luckily, I could do as Susan including getting gas for my car, you know just routine chores. It was now about 5 and I was thinking what to do. I wanted something to eat but really wasn’t hungry so I decided to go back to the Starbucks by my house and get a snack and a drink and work on my computer for a while and of course update my blog. I will hang out here for a couple hours as I do have some work I need to do on the computer and then I will go home and officially end my vacation it has been a fun 12 days and I am sad to see it come to an end but it will be nice to take a break from doing makeup everyday as it will be Friday the next chance I get to go out and meet my friend from the East coast.

Thanks for reading and sharing my vacation with me.

Sunday the long drive home

It is Sunday and the end of my Vacation almost. Today we make the long drive home and then I have Monday to be Susan in Portland followed by Tuesday when I must get my nails removed. I am still wondering if they can make the acrylic look normal enough that it would not be that noticeable. My nails are already thin from doing gel Polish for over a year and removing acrylic will just make them even thinner. Well that is something I will have to decide on Tuesday. I will also include the pictures we got that I had to scan into the computer in this blog. This is the photo shoot they did where they take your face and impose it on someone else’s body and of course photoshop it a little to make it look better or in my case soften my face some, what do you think, could I be a centerfold?

Now this blog will be short as all we really did was drive home. I got up at 7:20 to start getting ready with the hopes we could be on the road by 9. After 10 days of being Susan full time I seem to be a little slower getting ready, it is hard work being female 24/7. Now the good thing is Cassandra travels as her male self so she was ready a lot faster than I was so she loaded the car while I finished getting ready. I did pretty good as we were on the in the car leaving the motel by 8:35

Like I said not much happened as we drove about 4 hours and stopped for gas & lunch and I took over driving. Now we ate in the car as we had a long trip home so I was eating a hamburger as I drove with my long nails and didn’t mess up my lipstick, just wore a little off but that can’t be helped.

Our next stop was Weed California about 5:30, we needed gas again and we both needed a bathroom break. Cassandra filled the car and cleaned the window while I went in to use the bathroom. On the way, out the lady at the country was smiling at me and told me to have a wonderful day, I wished her the same and didn’t think anything of it. I got back in the car as I was still driving and Cassandra went in to use the bathroom. She came out and had a smile on her face, now remember she is in male mode on the trip. She looked at me and said guess what the lady inside said. According to Cassandra she said, “How tall is your lady, she is so beautiful and I always feel so tall”. She was a tall girl. I guess not only did she think I was female but that I was Cassandra’s lady, I got a chuckle out of that. Cassandra explained that we were both trans and on our way home and she thought that was wonderful. My story of the day. This is Cassandra and me at Binions in front of 1 Million dollars. They have this in real thick plastic and bolted to the table but you can get a picture behind it, Cassandra even put her hand on it and touched a million dollars. You can do one picture a day and everyone in the picture gets a copy but it takes about 30 minutes to get the picture printed and out. I think they hope you will gamble or put some money in a slot machine while you wait.

We got back in the car and we were off I was still driving. I actually like driving as I find it fun plus being able to see my pretty long nails on the steering wheel made it just that much more fun. We drove on and were making good time. Our goal was to be home between 11 and midnight. This is a group of girls that were in front of use, they are in town for a bachelorette party weekend and they invited Cassandra and I up to get in their picture. How cool is that although Cassandra got cut off on the left.

Now we had sunny and warm weather the whole drive home. Mid 80’s till we hit northern California and then it dropped down to about 70 but still clear blue skies. When we got to Oregon there were some clouds but still sunny and in the 50’s, what a change a few hundred miles makes but so much better on the weather then we had on our trip down a week and a half ago.

As we got closer to home we were trying to figure out if we should get something to eat ass all we had was the burger and fries from in & Out burger. We really hadn’t done anything today other than sit in a car but we decided we should get something so when we hit Eugene we went through the dive through at Taco Bell and got a party pack of tacos. This is a picture of Kim and I at Binions and yes, this time I put my hands on the money and touched it. I can now say I touched a million dollars.

Now by this time it was dark out so now I am driving and eating tacos in the car in the dark. It is challenging by itself but I was also worried about messing up my makeup, lipstick or spilling in my laps as tacos are not easy to eat one handed. I did a great job and didn’t spill anything in my lap or mess up my makeup just a little faded on my lipstick, I guess I am getting pretty good at being female. I don’t know why I was worried as it was dark out and no one could see me and our next stop was Cassandra’s house.

We got to Cassandra’s house and it was just a little after 11 so we unloaded the car and I decided to go home instead of staying there for the night. I got home at midnight and that brings the traveling part of my vacation to an end. Tomorrow Monday I will have a day to be Susan here in town and maybe do some shopping, and on Tuesday a half day of Susan ending in the removal of my nails before going home and back to my male self. It will be 12 days of living totally as Susan.

This is the final picture from Binions, Me, Kim and Cassandra all touching the million dollars. It has been a wonderful trip made even more special by the friends I got to share it with. Now we look forward to next year’s Diva Las Vegas.

Thanks for reading.

Saturday, Diva Las Vegas is over and we leave for Los Angeles

I got up today not looking forward to leaving Las Vegas it has been such a fun week, it went by so fast. I got up at 7:30 to get ready with the hopes of being on or way by 9. We had a 6 hour drive a head of us to get to our hotel in Long Beach which is only a couple miles from Hamburger Mary’s where we will go tonight. Teresa is also going and she left about 15 minutes behind us. We stopped in Barstow to get Gas and while Cassandra who is in male mode went inside I cleaned the windshield, I wonder what people thought. Traffic was bad as we got to close to LA and the GPS kept rerouting us to avoid it, wow what do we do before we had GPS.

WE got to our motel and checked in, Teresa was there before we finished unloading our car, and then made a quick drive to find Hamburger Mary’s and parking as we have only been here once before 2 years ago. We got back to the, motel and Cassandra started getting ready and I had to do some touch up on my makeup and of course I wanted a red lipstick for tonight so I had to change that and then get my dress and heels on an was ready to go.

Now we had planned on being at Hamburger Mary’s at 7 that is what we told Melissa who is driving up from San Diego to meet us. Now it was 5:15 and we just figured we would go early. On the way, There Cassandra thought about the Queen Marry so we drove down to see it only about 5 miles. It was cool to see it and of course we parked and got out to take some pictures. I really love this dress as it is so cute and classy. We all took several pictures here it was a lot of fun. We left here and headed for Hamburger Mary’ which was only 10 minutes away and we parked in the parking garage right behind it.

We got to Hamburger Mary’s by 6 and they were packed inside, the had a big LGBT event going on so we sat outside at the tables by the street and watched the cars go by. It was a nice warm evening out so far but every once in a while, the breeze was cool. It was a nice enjoyable evening in Long Beach. I do need to work on my pose, I watched some of the girls inside getting their pictures taken and they make it look so easy and I just feel stiff when I try to pose for a picture.

There were others sitting outside and Cassandra was playing on Paltalk on her phone. The event inside got over about 7:30 and by then it was getting a little cool outside so we moved inside to a table which was hard to get as they also had a Drag show scheduled for 8 which was late do to the first event going long. By 8 it was busy again inside and it was a good thing we got a table. It was going to be a busy night here. We ordered dinner well I had breakfast as it just sounded good. Cassandra and I took some pictures inside as well by the Hamburger Mary’s backdrop. Also, a little later for T-girl Saturday they have a professional photographer here to take pictures for the lady who runs this web page so Cassandra and I also went over had had him take several pictures which will be on her web page in the next couple weeks. It is cool she does this, she spends a lot of her own money putting on this event every month.

The Drag started about 8:40 and it was good but I have seen so many drag shows over the years I just can’t get that excited about them but the girls were really good and the crowd loved them. When I first started going out the place we went on Friday and Saturday nights did drag shows so I was seeing them 1 to 2 times a week for a couple years. The show went to about 9:30 and then they started T-girl Saturday.

T-girl Saturday is always the first Saturday of the month at hamburger Mary’s in Long Beach California. Now Melissa showed up with a couple of her friends, it was great to see her again. She use to come out with us all the time in Portland till she moved to San Diego. Now the one bad thing about T-girl nights is the fact it is a dance party and the music is so loud but the dance floor was full. I met several girls and I have no idea what their names are as I could not hear over the music, most of the time I just smiled and nodded my head. It also got really hot inside with all the people inside and the fact they were dancing. We found out later one of their air conditioners was broke and of course it was the one on our side.

I was so hot I walked outside for a bit and there was a line of people to get in and the security guard was checking purses and bags and also using a handheld metal detector to scan people, I guess things are different down here. I ran into Valerie who I met in Diva Las Vegas in 2011. It was good to see here and catch up. I also asked her about Alexis who I also met at that Diva Las Vegas. She disappears from Facebook and her blog and then comes back and then disappears. I was just wondering how she was doing.

The heat finally got too bad as even Cassandra was hot so we called it a night about midnight. It was a fun evening but we must get up early as we have a 15-hour drive home tomorrow. Monday will be a Susan day in Portland and then Tuesday my pretty red nails go away.

Thanks for reading and sharing my vacation with me.

Thursday of Diva Las Vegas

It is Thursday of Diva Las Vegas, wow this week is going fast. I stayed up way to late last night about 3 am. This girl is not use to these late nights. We all slept in this morning I got up around 10 and started getting ready a little slower than the first days of the trip. I was already by 11:30. Veronica must take care of some business and Cassandra was still resting being so late in the morning she didn’t want to get ready and then must redo her makeup for the evening o she isn’t going to start getting ready till 1 or so, so I figured I would have some me time. I grabbed my computer and headed downstairs, through the casino and up to the second-floor casino bar. They don’t open this bar till the evening and they have some tables I can sit at on my computer and update my blog. This is where I have been going in the morning. Here is a picture from this morning. You can see the slot machines behind me. I finished my blog from yesterday and posted it online and then just sat here for over an hour catching up on e-mails, Facebook and even some work. I wonder what some of my co-workers would think if they knew I was dressed like this sitting in a casino doing my work on my laptop with my long pretty acrylic nails. It is un and a good place to people watch as there are several shops nearby and a pedestrian bridge from our hotel (California Hotel Casino) to their sister property the Main Street Station and of course a lot of slot machines so there are lots of people going by all the time. It was a fun and relaxing way to start my day. I probably would have stayed longer but I forgot to plug my computer in and the battery was running low.

I went back to the room to see if Cassandra was ready and she still hadn’t started getting ready. It was about 1 and we weren’t leaving till 3:45 so I went down to the casino to play a little Blackjack. I found a $5 table and sat down, there were 5 other people at the table and it was a fun table to play at. Everyone was friendly and talkative. Now two of the players were counting cards or at least I am pretty sure they were as one would bet $5 and the other $25 but everyone in a while the one would bet between $40 and $50 and the other would bet $200 to $250 and it was always the same hand so I started watching and it was always a hand after a lot of small cards came out. The funny thing is they were not wining. Soon they left and it was just me and the couple at the other end of the table and they were awesome, they were from Ohio. We talked and had a great time. I heard about their vacation and what they had done and told them about mine and Diva Las Vegas we had a great time

It was about 3 when Cassandra came down and joined our table and they just loved her too. I played till 3:30 and then I had to quit because I needed to go change and put on a dress and heels for dinner tonight. I was also $57 a head so I wanted to leave as a winner. I told Cassandra I was going to go change and the lady at the other end of the table told me I had to come back so she could see my dress, how cool is that. I went up and changed and came back down and she complimented me on my dress and how good I looked which I always love. Even Cassandra had fun playing with them of course she also won.

We left and drove downtown and there were a lot of traffic lights out the wind today is bad, 40 MPR with gusts to 60. There were fences blown over and trees down I think this is the worst wind we have had here during any of the Diva Las Vegas. We got downtown and went into the LINQ as that s were the farewell dinner is. We were early so we decided to play a little Black Jack. I did okay for a while but then the table got cold and I lost so in the end I lost $100. It was time to go to the restaurant called off the strip at the LINQ. Now some of the girls were there and we were in their big room upstairs so it was a good time to socialize and of course take pictures.

Beverly had just bought a drink and Cassandra asked her to take a picture of her so she put her drink down on the bar and took it and so I gave her my phone and asked her to take one of me and I picked up her drink, it is such a cute picture I thought, thanks Beverly. There were lots of picture being taken by everyone as this is the farewell dinner and although not the last event I may not see many of these girls again till next year. Not sure if I mentioned in earlier blogs but we have 14 girls here from our group this year which is awesome.

Dinner was served and t was really good, they have great food here and the service was wonderful.it really was a nice place and so much fun. I met a few girls that were new and this was their first time here, I met some that follow my blog and of course some that I have known for years but only see once a year when I come to Las Vegas. I really look forward to this week and it is sad that it is coming to an end. Now after dinner there was more socializing and picture taking. Now there was some confusion with the bills as they did one bill for each table, I don’t know why some restaurants do that and won’t do individual bills. Now they did bring out the big bill and from that they rang up the individual amounts so we could pay individually. Beverly had to leave so she gave me her money and I paid her bill also. Now I paid my bill which included Beverly’s and I thought it was a little high but it was a nice restaurant and I gave them a good tip about 25% After we left I was talking to Cassandra and she had a copy of the total bill for our table and it turns out what I paid already included an 18% tip. I talked to some of the girls and some had been told their bill included that and some were not. I guess I should have asked before I paid.

We went into the casino and played some more Blackjack and again I lost but this time only $40. The casino we went into was so loud, it is called O’sheas casino and it is a small side casino at the LINQ. Right by the Blackjack tables they have a band that plays and people dance right behind you, very distraction and I guess I should like that as I left after a short while because of how loud it was and that probably kept me from losing more money. By the way this is Beverly, Cassandra and me before dinner.

We went back to our hotel casino and of course went down to the Blackjack tables for a while, it was about 11:30. I played till about 2:15 am and had a great time and I won $30 so I won back some of my money. It has been a fun week but is going by so fast. It was a wonderful day.

Tomorrow is the last day of Diva Las Vegas and it will be sad to see it come to an end. Have met some wonderful people here and caught up with some great friends. The internet is wonderful as it lets you meet people you wouldn’t have a chance to from all over the country and even the world. The bad part is you make friends you may never meet or only see once a year or more. On the bright side, Beverly, might be in the Portland area in a month or two and if she does she will get to hang out with us when she is there.

Friday some of the girls are doing a racing thing and we have one more dinner before the end. Saturday Cassandra and I will leave and head to LA and go out there Saturday night and then we will drive home on Sunday not sure if we will drive all the way or stop and finish on Monday I guess that depends on how late we are out Saturday night.

Thanks for reading and sharing my vacation with me.

Wednesday the half way point of Diva Las Vegas

Today is Wednesday the half way point of Diva Las Vegas and I have had my nails for 6 days now and loving every minute of it. Mow today Kim leaves as she could only join us for a few days and it has been fun and we are also going golfing again today after we drop her off at the airport. I got up and got dressed as I wanted to go downstairs and post my blog from yesterday. By the way it was a short night as by the time I got back to the room and finished writing my blog from yesterday it was almost 2:30 am when I went to bed so getting up at 7 was hard today. Tomorrow I can sleep in. I did my makeup and then got dressed, I just through on some Capri pants and a top instead of the pink skirt I will ware for golfing to go downstairs. I have a lot of pictures today so they will be just intermixed in the blog.

I walked through the casino and took the elevator to the second floor as there is a bar up there that is closed in the morning but has tables I can sit at and use my computer, plus the gift shop is up there and I needed some suntan lotion as I lost mine yesterday somewhere on the golf course. After posting my blog started walking to the gift shop and the lady from the chocolate shop Kim and I stopped at yesterday saw me and came over and said good morning Susan the few minutes we were there and she remembered me and I know I stand out but she remembered my name which was awesome so we talked briefly as we walked. It was really nice.

I got to the gift shop and went in, they really didn’t have a wide selection of sunscreen and it was not cheap, SPF 30 was the highest they had and only in a 3oz size for $12.99 but I had to have it and I am sure they know people who buy this here need it. I got to the counter and the girl there told me she loved my lipstick which is red again today. I thanked her and told her I loved red lipstick and she agreed she also loved it, I guess I should mention she also had a red lipstick on, not as bright as mine but still pretty, so of course I complimented her also on hers. I actually stayed and talked with her briefly about what I was doing for the day. I must say everyone I have encountered working here at the California Hotel Casino has been wonderful and treated me awesome.

I walked back to the elevator and got on to go upstairs and a man got on with me and I am not even sure how we started talking but he was on the same floor I was and we talked going up the elevator and as we walked to our rooms, I even stopped briefly when he got to his room to finish up what we were talking about. As he went in he wished me a wonderful day. It really has been a good morning so far.

It was about 9:30 when Cassandra, Veronica, Kim and I left to go pick up the other girl. After that we were off to the airport to drop off Kim for her flight home. We will miss her. After dropping her off the 4 of us were off to Wild horse golf course, we had an 11:45 tee time. We got there about 10:45 as we went right from the airport. Well they were not that busy so we were able to go right out on the course of course we also got no time to warm up so it would be interesting how we did to start. Now today was perfect for golf about 75 and no wind.

Now it was fun and yes playing golf as Susan is more fun than as my male self although I don’t play as well I look cute and that is what counts. I had some good shots and not so good shots and I only lost 1 golf ball which is a good day. It was about 3:30 when we finished, I didn’t have the best score but that was okay because I did have a handy cap today. I have been wearing a padded bra so I don’t have to wear my breast forms but my bra has underwire and they started poking out in my chest. I had to use a napkin to pad it so it wouldn’t jab me anymore. It was about 4:30 when we got back to our hotel.

We rested for a bit and then started getting ready for dinner, we are going to Margaretaville for dinner. we left a little after 6. Veronica had gone to pick up Mechie as she was joining us. Cassandra set this up to meet a couple of her PalTalk friends. Cassandra and I finished dressing and went downstairs and sat on one of the benches outside and waited for Veronica to get back and of course we took a few pictures.

We got to Margaretaville well we parked in the parking garage of the LINQ and walked through the casino and over to Margaretaville which is at the Flamingo. There was a 35-minute wait so we went up to the 3rd floor to wait and sit at the bar patio that overlooks the Las Vegas strip. It is a great place to relax and people watch. Cassandra’s other PalTalk friend showed up, he goes by the name ZZtop on PalTalk, he was a really nice and this was the first time they had met in person. That really is kind of cool that you can meet someone online a one day actually meet them. Now Margaretville is a fun place with good food but the best part is being on the deck upstairs looking over the Las Vegas Strip. We always like coming here although tonight there was a mix up I think on our order as it took a long time to get it. The man who took our order was covering the lady who actually served us who was on break. Anyway, it had been about 45 minutes when she came over and asked if we would like desert. I said we probably would once we ate but we were still waiting for our order. Well we got our food about 10 minutes later. I most of us didn’t care as we were having a wonderful time talking by the way Teresa also showed up for dinner with us so we had 7 tonight. It was a good time now when they brought our bill there was a mix up so that cause a little more tension but in all it was still a fun evening. It is possible they were just having a bad night and things didn’t go well but one minorly bad experience after all the times we have come here and had awesome experiences is not a big deal.

It was getting late and we left, we said goodbye to ZZtop and drove Mechie back to where she lived before heading back to our hotel. We got there about 10:30 and decided to do a little gambling so we headed for the Blackjack tables. It was just before 11 when we sat down to play at a $10 table as it was the only one all 3 of us could sit together at, I bought in with $100. After about 10 minutes Cassandra was not doing well so she left and went to a $25 tale across form us so Veronica and I sat and played. We even chatted with some of the other people at the table which is always fun and people come and go depending on their luck. Again, gambling like anything else will have good times and bad times, several times I got down to my last $10 and sometimes I was up I think at one point I had about $225. This is gambling and the odds are always in the houses favor the key is to have fun. I think a lot of times people get so caught up in winning which is fun but when they are not winning they don’t have fun and then they should take a break.

It was about 2 am when they close down a few tables and the pit boss came over and asked if we would mind moving over a table so they could close our table which was just Veronica and I at. We were on a cold streak so we moved over and again I won some hands in a row so I was going back up. It was probably 2:40 when Veronica and I called it a night, I think this is the latest we have been out this week but we can sleep in, in the morning. I cashed in $75 so for almost 4 hours of playing Blackjack I lost $25 so 4 hours of fun cost $25 not bad. We went up and went to bed as we have no plans for tomorrow other than dinner we all plan on sleeping in so I figure I can finish my blog in the morning by the casino bar before posting it.

So here ends the half way point of Diva Las Vegas and also my vacation. Tomorrow night Thursday will make one week of living as Susan and having my pretty acrylic nails. I am already thinking about next Tuesday when I will have to have them removed and go back to shorter normal nails, so sad. I keep thinking about what Anna my nail lady said about keeping the acrylics and just cutting them back shorter. The thickness of the nails makes me think I can’t do this but I may have her remove the gel polish and trim them back and look at them and see what they look like. Maybe she can grind them down so they are not as thick and look more natural but that is something I do not have to decide for 6 more days.

Thanks for reading
