My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday evening at the Escape

It is Saturday and yes, I am going to the Escape at least for a little while. It wasn’t till 4 that I thought I could go so I am looking forward to it. I have a lot going on right now so it is harder to plan my Susan time. In a way I think you realize how special that time is when you have to plan a little more to work it out. Susan really is an important part of who I am and it is hard when you can’t express your true self. Any way I started getting ready a little after 4 as I wanted to get to the Escape early. Kate had texted me she would be there so I was looking forward to seeing her as she has not been out for 6+ weeks. Now I took my time on my makeup and tonight I really liked the way my eyes turned out, I wish I had taken a picture just of my eyes. I was done with my makeup and was deciding on my dress, I went with my red one. Now the big choice should I wear my corset. It has been hot the last few weeks and the next 5 days will be in the mid 90’s which around here is really hot but today it is only in the low 80’s so I decided I would wear it and hope I was not to hot. I got it on and I really like the way it looks as it does give me a nice shape, it takes my waist in about 5 inches and the shape of it increases my hips a couple inches so with it on my waist is about 6 inches smaller then my hips and bust, I actually have an hourglass shape with it. The other thing great about it is it makes me sit up straight, I really slouch a lot and I really don’t like it when I do it but I never really think about it unless someone points it out to me, a bad habit. The corset fixes that as it is impossible to slouch in a corset.

I was al ready and on my way about 5:45 and got to the Escape at 6 and went in. Kate was already there so we would get a good chance to talk as we waited for others to show up. I ordered dinner, yes it was a hamburger as I really like their burgers here and it is the first 1 I have had this week. I have been trying to watch what I eat and have cut down on my dairy, Milk, I love milk so it has been hard. I use to drink 2 gallons or more a week not it is less then a gallon and it actually helps. I have lost almost 10 LB’s in the last 3 weeks or so. It didn’t take long for my burger as they really were not busy right now, I had my choice of several parking spots right in front of the door. A quick selfie in the car before going in.

Kate and I talked as I ate it was nice to catch up with her. She has been traveling a lot for work and is also dealing with some of the same family issues I am so we talked about that also. We also talked about how we get ready, what we do first and how we do it. I do my makeup first before I put on any of my girl stuff. Kate was talking how it took her a little longer tonight as she has not been able t be Kate for several weeks and it is true, if you go a while without doing makeup it is a little slower. Now I can get ready in 45 minutes if I have to and everything goes right but I really like to allow 1 ½ hours to get ready, not so much I need it but I want to take my time and enjoy it. Kate and I were both talking about it and we both enjoy the time we spend getting ready and doing our makeup. I really don’t know why other then in my male life there really is nothing to think about, shower, shave, brush my teeth and hair and put my clothes on and for my clothes they are all pretty much the same, pants and a shirt, maybe different colors but all the same. So many more options for Susan. The other night we were talking about our cruise and the formal night and if you think about it for men what is a formal night? A tux or suit, yes there are some small variations of style and color, but for woman it is wide open, so many more options even doing different hair styles. Men never do a different hair style for one night.

It was amazing how fast the night went and soon it was 9, Kate wanted to go check out a place that has some Jazz bands and see which one was there, I stayed at the Escape in case any other girls showed up and sure enough right after Kate left another girl showed up. Now the funny thing is when I put on my corset earlier I was worried about being to hot and that defiantly was nit the case tonight as they had the AC cranked up. I actually got so cold I went outside for about 10 minutes to warm up. Now that is saying a lot as I am usually the last one to get cold, if Cassandra had been here tonight she would have been freezing.

I came back in and they were doing Karaoke and it is fun to listen to but hard to talk any more. Jan and Lynn also showed up so I got to talk with them a little between songs. Well once again it got to me and outside I went again to get warm. I was talking with one of the lady’s ho works here in the Kitchen and she told me their AC broke yesterday and it was so hot inside so today they got it fix and boy did they get it fixed. I went back inside and sat and talked with Jan & Lynn some more. It was about 10 and Lauri showed up, it was good to see her again so we talked a little more. Again, I was freezing so I went and paid my bill and was going to call it a night but Lauri had put her name into sing. Now of course when she put it in it was not that busy but by now it was getting busy. II told her how cold I was and she admitted it was cold in here tonight also so she said I should go outside and warm up, I laughed and told her I had already done that twice so why not a third time.

We went outside and it was still warmer then inside and my cell phone said it was 68 out now. We were talking and Rachel showed up, she is a GG we met years ago at the P-club and after our issue with them she got our group to go to the Sweet home, Bar & Grill. I haven’t been there for a long time as it is hard to get out on Friday nights now but I really do need to go there again as it was a wonderful place. Any way she is a wonderful lady and it was great to see her again. Her wife Heather was also her and it was great to see her also, these really are two special ladies. Well we went back inside and I listened to Lauri sing and she did great and I talked with Rachel for a while, it was great to reconnect with them but again I was getting cold and that was all I could handle so I called it a night. I said my goodbyes to everyone and left right around 11pm. Now I got in my car and yes, I turned the heat on to 76, I have not had the heat on in my car for months and I left it on all the way home. Wow it was cold there tonight. One of the bad things about being female I guess as the clothes are thinner and bare legs and arms and of course open toed heels but still worth it, and it was a great night.

Thanks for reading and be sure and read my newest blog to see what’s new.

Saturday at the Escape

It is Saturday and tonight is the Rose Festival Starlight parade so I am not sure how many will be out at the Escape and the downtown area will be packed. But I am still going out. Now I do have to share a funny story, as you all know I have had acrylic nails now for over a year and probably for the last 6 months I have had a clear pink that in certain light does look pinkish. Well really no one has really said anything about them accept for the occasional “you nails look really nice” well yesterday I went and got my hair cut not as Susan as this is a male thing I do as I keep my hair short and it really needed to be done. Well the lady who cuts my hair is really nice and after my hair cut as I was paying her she noticed my nails. Well instead of your nails look nice what she said was wow I really love that color. Now I know there is a slight color to them but this is the first time someone has mentioned the color. I thanked her and then she followed with “you know what would look good you can fade the end into a white, not as much as French tip but a faded one, (name of other lady working there) has the same thing and it looks beautiful although hers are a lot longer”. Now this really caught me off guard as I really would like to do that but as I have seen this nail look and it is pretty, here is a picture of what it looks like but I just smiled and said this was enough for now. Now I must have said it a little fast as she apologized and said she hope she hadn’t offended me and I assured her she had not and it was fine. I guess I was just not prepared for someone to recommend how I could do my nails, next time I will handle it better. Now I am looking forward to my next haircut.

Anyway, back to Saturday and it was a busy day as I had things I had to do so it was after 5 when I got home and started getting ready so I will not be there by my usual 5:30. I took my time getting ready even though I knew I was running late and even still I was ready by a little after 6 and on my way. I got to the Escape at 6:30 and as I was waiting for traffic I noticed the parking lot was full so I debated about just going and finding a parking spot on the street but a saw someone come out and get in a car so I was going to luck out. Now there was a lot of traffic and by the time a break came and I could pull into the parking lot 3 cars had left and one more was backing out. I got here at the perfect time and got to park right in front of the door. I went in and all the tables were empty with just a few people at the bar. I sat down at our table and got my computer out and ordered dinner.

Now I had only been here a few minutes and Robyn showed up and right after her was Michelle. I talked with Robyn for a little bit and she showed me her heels she had just bought, very cute and high. My dinner came so I ate and Robyn and Michelle ordered the same thing, yes it was a hamburger so if I do go Sunday I will have to find something else.

Jan, Lynn, Kearren, Kate and one other girl showed up so we had 8 of us here and it was only a little after 7, this was great. Jan, Lynn and I talked about next Saturday as we are going to a gun range, Jan and Lynn are certified instructors and rent a gun range for the day and invite our members to go and shoot some guns and also give them some training if needed. They have done this for the last 5 years I think but this is the first year I am able to go so I am really looking forward to it. Now I know the bun issue is a hot topic right now but this is not meant to be a political issue it is just some girls getting together for some target practice and a picnic and some girl time with friends. If you like guns you can go if you don’t like them you don’t have to go it is just another group activity.

I got to talk with Kearren and Kate a little. Now Wednesday night at Dinner Kate was showing me some of her pictures from Diva Las Vegas and one has me in the background. I kind of think I photo bombed her on this although she is off to one side so maybe she was trying to get both of us in it but it was just such a cute picture I asked her if I could post it on my blog and she said yes. I always like to ask if I can post a picture if others are in it as I think it is the right thing to do.

Now there was a smaller crowd here tonight and a lot of them were people I hadn’t seen her before or just don’t remember but it was still fun and everyone was great as always. The Escape really is a great place to go and very excepting of everyone. Son it w as 9 and Karaoke started. It is hard to talk once the singing starts but still fun to listen to and sing along with the songs you know. Now again there were a lot of songs I didn’t know would even say I had never heard before. Is that a sign I am getting old?

Lauri showed up at her usual 9:45, I kid her a lot about being our late-night girl but I remember when I never went out till it was dark. I don’t think that is her reason though as I just think she is busy and doesn’t get a chance to get out earlier. I got to talk with her a little also so we had a total of 9 girls out tonight. It was a little after 11 when I called it a night and paid my bill. It is always sad to see the evening come to an end. I am hoping to get to go out Sunday late afternoon and evening for a few hours as I really look forward to my Starbuck’s time and I am now 2 blogs behind, Wednesday night dinner at Hobo’s and now Saturday night. The funny thing is I like going out as Susan to write my blogs but if I always do this I never get caught up as Sunday I will go out and do my blogs for the previous times but then I will need to find time to write my blog about Sunday at Starbucks.

I also realize a lot of my blogs may be repetitive in nature as I do and go the same places and I am glad so many people read them which I never thought people would but I really use this to document my time as Susan, my life as Susan, where I go, what I do and who is there, kind of my personal diary which I am happy to share. This is my 1075th blog post which means I have been out as Susan at least that many times. So hard to believe as 10 years ago I was happy if I could get out a couple times a year. I really do owe a lot to my friends that have helped me over the years.

Thanks for reading and being part of my life and be sure to keep up with Susan on my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at Hobo’s downtown

It is Wednesday and our group is going to Hobo’s downtown for dinner which is a really nice place with good food. I posted in our group to see who all was going and so far, only have 2 that said yes and 2 maybes so may be a smaller group. I got home and started getting ready as I wanted to get to Hobo’s early for 2 reasons, just to make sure someone was there in case any girls showed up early and yes also to work on my blog as once again I am behind in writing them. I got done with my make by a little after 5 and was starting to get dressed when Julie texted me to see when I planed on going. I texted her back and said I was almost ready to leave and asked if she wanted me to pick her up, not that far out of my way and way more fun to go with someone then by yourself. Now years ago, it was because I just didn’t want to be out by myself but that is not the reason today. Today going out as Susan is about 2 things, being out doing normal things every other woman does but 2 and probably most important is being out with my friends. I have made some awesome close friends that are more like family and I miss when I don’t get to see them. Julie texted me that would be great so I told her I would be there in about 30 minutes and quickly finished getting dressed and was on my way.

I got to Julies house which is pretty much all finished after her remodel and she was already to go but she did take a few minutes to show me what was new and of course we got a couple pictures in her front room. It was turning out to be a fun night. Julie and I left and drove to Downtown Portland and parked just around the corner from Hobo’s, there were actually quiet a few parking spots tonight. We got to Hobo’s and went in and got a table and now we waited to see who all would show up. The table had 4 chairs but we could probably fit 6 around it if more showed up.

Barb was the first to show up followed by Kate and then Joan so we had 5 which was just perfect as we had room at the table but everyone could talk with everyone which is always nice. We talked for a bit and had some appetizers which Julie ordered, Thank Julie. Then it was time to order dinner. The food here is really good but more of a medium price range. My two favorite things here are the Chicken Parmesan which I had last time and their Prime Rib, I went with the Prime Rib tonight although I ate more of the appetizers then I should have.

Now we talked more as we waited for our food. One thing we are working on is how to get more of our group out especially the newer members. We all know how hard that first time or two out can be as we were all there at one point. I think back to the first times I went out and how scarred I was and now it is no big deal. Most of the time when I am out I am not even thinking about how I am dressed and for the most part people don’t care, I don’t even think a lot of people even notice as they are busy with what is going on in their lives. WE also talked a little about our Mexican Cruise this fall still time to sign up if you are interested. It really is fun to be out with my friends.

Our dinners finally came and we all enjoyed our food as I said they really do have good food here. We had a wonderful evening and dinner and no one ordered desert as between the appetizers and our dinners that was more then enough. Besides I really need to get serious about watching what I eat as I do want to lose some weight by our cruise which is coming up fast now. The night went by so fast as it always does and soon it was 9:30 and time to call it a night.

As we left Julie and I walked through CC Slaughters to see what was going on. It was pretty empty but we did see Dee and her partner there. Turns out they have just moved back to the Portland area so we talked with them for a little while before leaving. Now it was time to take Julie home before going home myself. It really is nice to have Julie there as we got to talk more and things are just more fun with friends along. It was a little after 10 when I dropped Julie off and headed for home. It really was a wonderful night out.

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

Saturday at the Escape on Memorial Day Weekend

It is Saturday of Memorial Day weekend so I am not sure how many girls will be out but before I get into my blog I want to recognize the sacrifice so many American men and woman have made for our freedom and our way of life. We have and live in the greats country in the world and we owe it all to our brave service men and woman who dedicated their lives to protect us and some gave up everything for us. I want to thank you all and let you know how much we appreciate what you gave and let you know you are not forgotten.

Now I started getting ready early for two reasons, first I wanted to take my time and enjoy every moment of becoming Susan and second, I wanted to get there early so I could write my blog from Wednesday as I am once again behind in my blogging. Seems I just can’t find the time the next day to update things. Now it was about 4:45 when I was all done and ready to dress but I decided I would ware my corset tonight which also means picking out the right dress. I got the corset on and it really does give me a nice shape as I have hips and a waist which is several inches narrower, I will have to measure it sometime as I am curious. I got the corset on and put the dress I chose on and it just didn’t look right so off it came and back to the closet. It was the third dress I tried that I went with, a black and white one that goes down to mid-calf but also has a slit on the left that goes up to mid-thigh oh and also tight and clingy so the curves show. Being a girl is so much fun.

I got to the Escape just before 5:30 and went in. They were not that busy so I sat down and got my computer out and ordered dinner. I looked around and Kearren was also there early so she came over and joined me. It has been a while since I have seen her out, at least before Diva Las Vegas which was 6 weeks ago, wow time is flying. Well I put my computer away as it is always more fun to talk with someone then play on my computer, guess I will do my blog Sunday. It is sad as she will be moving too Idaho in a few weeks and I will miss her. We talked a while about why we do this and we both agreed there really is no right answer other then we enjoy it and it relaxes us. I guess for me Susan is part of who I am and when I can be her feel complete and that is a real enjoyable and relaxing feeling compared to hiding her away.

We got on the topic of Facebook and friends and peoples profiles. I will share my thoughts and remember these are just my thoughts for me. I do get a lot of friends request and I am selective of who I accept. Now it is not because I don’t want to be friends with people I just try to limit it to people I feel I will meet at some point or we have a lot of friends in common. I am not interested in having just numbers. Again, this is me, I see people with 5,000 friends and I have to ask myself how can you keep up with that many, at 100 a day it would take you 50 days to look at each of them. We also talked about profiles with no picture or information, again I don’t friend blank profiles although I have made the rare exception as sometimes people have valid reasons. I do have a few friends that I have met or have exchanged pictures with that just can’t put public info out but I do want to make sure people are real. Any way Kearren is trying to get a good picture of herself to post so I gave her my tips and again this is what works for me. I find I get my best pictures when the camera is above me and at a slight angle. So, I am going to post pictures taken different ways to show the difference. It is amazing the difference that different angles make.

Well Kate was the next to show up so the 3 of us sat and talked for a while. Then Kate and Kearren went to play pool so I thought about getting my computer out but then Bobbie showed up followed by Jan & Lynn. Now a funny story as a group of women showed up about 8 and they were all waring Tutu’s and looked so cute. Well I had to tell them that and soon I was talking to a couple of them. It turns out one of their friends had been working on the East coast the last 2 months and was back in town for the weekend and had asked 1 of them to pick her up at the airport. Well this friend had this great idea and got several of her friends to show up at the airport in tutu’s and hold up signs as they waited for her to get off the plane, signs like welcome back from rehab, and so on. It was so funny. Any way I just thought I would share this so remember this the next time you ask a friend to pick you up at the airport or if you are going to pick someone up.
kellybea also showed up tonight with her wife, she is one of our newer members and has gone out a couple times in Salem but she drove up here tonight. It was really nice to meet her and her and her wife seem really nice. I got to talk with them a little which was nice and I hope they cam get out more with our group. I really do like when I meat new people. It was about 9:30 and Lauri showed up so we had a good size group tonight, 10 in all.

It was also getting crowded now as people were coming in for karaoke and that is always fun although you really can’t talk anymore as it gets to loud. Now a lot of the songs sung tonight I have never herd or at least don’t remember so when the ones I know were sung I would sing a long quietly of course. Now I did get several compliments on my dress as it really did look good. I wish I had gotten a picture of me standing so I would be able to show off the dress but I didn’t think of that. Any way of course I would thank them and got into conversations with them also which really makes a fun night. Alice would have been so proud of me as I probably talked with at least 6 women there I didn’t know and had never met so much different from 10/15 years ago when I would go out and just sit and keep to myself and not make eye contact with people. It really is fun to interact with people.

This brings me back to another thing Kearren and I talked about, passing in public which is a question I get asked a lot. Both do I pass and for those who ask me this, thanks for the compliment, and also, I will get asked by others if they pass as they don’t want to go out unless they

pass. No, I do not pass in the way people ask or think. Yes, there are times, right lighting, distance, alcohol intake and so on when I do but I do not even come close to passing 100% and that is okay. For me passing means something totally different. If I can go out and not be bothered, not be made fun of, be treated as a female then I have passed. Passing to me is being accepted for who I am. Tonight here I passed 100% as always. I am always accepted here and treated as any other woman her and that is a great feeling. Now what will help you is being confident and by this, I mean acting like this is the most natural thing for you, like you are not doing anything wrong, the other big thing is smile and be polite, this goes a long way. Again, this is just my thoughts and views and that and $5 will get you a drink at Starbucks. Now the 3 pictures above were all taken right in a row with me sitting in the same position. The only thing that changes was the height and angle of my phone and I did try to keep the same facial expression.

It was a good night out and I ended up staying out later then I planned as it was almost 11:30 when I paid my bill and called it a night and I think I was actually the first to leave. Wow the girls stayed out late tonight. Now I did go back through some old pictures and found one of me in the dress I wore tonight so this will give you an idea of how I looked but tonight I had curves. It really was a wonderful night. I do plan on going to Starbucks on Sunday and as I have Monday off I will be out in the morning and early afternoon. Not sure what I will do, maybe get together with some friends for shopping or lunch. I really do lov e this part of my life.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what’s new with Susan on my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at the Rock Bottom.

Okay it is Wednesday and our group is having dinner at the Rock Bottom in downtown Portland. It is another Brew pub in Portland, yes Portland has a lot of Brew Pubs, some say the microbrew really started here. We have gone here many times and the food is wonderful and we are always treated well but that is the case where ever we go here in Portland. Now I am not sure who all will show up as Cassandra is taking the summer of and she really has been the driving force behind our group. I did post in our group that I would be there for sure. Well before I get to far Just a quick note, there is still time to sign up to go on our Mexican Cruise, October 13 to 20 2018. We have 28 signed up right now let’s see if we can get 30. . For more information check out our web page or contact me.

I got home from work and had time tonight to enjoy the getting ready and take my time which always makes the night better. I was all ready and, on my way, a little before 5. I got downtown Portland and this area seems a lot busier as I never seem to be able to find a parking spot on the street. I drove around a couple blocks and nothing so I went right to the parking garage which is only 1 block away and even that was kind of full, I found a parking spot on the 5th floor right by the elevator. It still amazes me how far I have come as Susan. A few years ago, I would park right by the door or where I could see it and wait till I saw no one around before getting out of my car and going straight in. tonight it was no big deal. I parked, got out of my car got on the elevator and down to the street and walked the block to the Rock Bottom as though it was the most natural thing to do, not once did I think about how I was dressed or if people were looking at me. It really is a wonderful feeling.

I went inside and I was the first one there, Kate texted me she was almost there so I checked our group to see who all posted, Kate, Barb and Melissa all said they would be here so I knew we had at least 4. Kate got there and she got us a table for 4 although we could squeeze 2 more in we would just be cozy. As it turned out it would be just the 4 of us. Melissa showed up and we all sat at the table and talked as we waited. Barb showed up right at 7 and so we all ordered dinner. They really do have good food here but I really like their Chicken fried Chicken so that is what I ordered. They were a little busy which is always nice as you can people watch which really has become one of the fun things I like to do.

We had a wonderful time and talked a little about our group and what we want to do mainly about our dinners. We all really want to keep them going but we want to find a way to get more of the group going out. Cassandra use to send text messages which is a big undertaking but it got it to the members directly instead of them having to go to the group web page. It really made it to easy and people got to use to it and t may get hard to break that and get them back to checking the web page. Melissa has done so much with our web page she has even put forums in it where we can have group talks it really is a wonderful web page with lots of information. We talked if we should try to find a way to do group tests again but I would really like to try and get people to go back to checking the web page. It really only does take a few seconds and you can do it right on your cell phone. Well that is something we as the administrators will have to figure out. The one thing I do know is we need members to reply and let us know if they are coming out just so we can plan for it, it would not be good if we had a table for 6 and 7 or 8 showed up and had to sit by themselves. Well I guess I got off topic again as that really had nothing to do with our dinner out. We also talked a little about our Mexican cruise, still time to sign up so check the link above.

The night went by so fast as always and soon it was after 9. We all paid our bills; our waitress was awesome by the way. Now it was time to leave so we said our goodbyes and left. Melissa and I had both parked in the parking garage so we walked together and talked. It really was a wonderful evening out with friends.

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

Saturday night at the Escape

It is Saturday and I am going to the Escape tonight to see my friends. I am hoping for a good turnout tonight as in a way it is a going way for Cassandra. She is taking a break from going out so much as she has gone out 3 or more times a week for more then 10 years. She is also stepping down from running our group the Rose city t-girls. I call it our group as it is but Cassandra was the one who founded it, started it, got it to grow and made it the best T-girl group around. She has a personality and a way of talking to someone for just a short time and they are a friend. She really has lived and breathed this group for over 10 years and we all understand her need to step away. Melissa, Kate, Julie and I are going to step in and do are best to run the group but we will never be able to replace her even with 4 of us. Cassandra is not going away she will still be around just not coming out as much. So, for members of our group if you have ideas please look to the Administrator page and contact one of the Admins. Trust me running a group like this is a huge thing and we will need all your help. Any way this will be Cassandras last Saturday night out and this Wednesday will be her last dinner for a while so if you are in the group please make every effort to come out to dinner this week.

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

Now I wanted to get to the Escape early as I wanted to work on my blog from Thursday night dinner with Charlene and her wife and also my trip to the nails salon. My goal was to be there by 5, well I didn’t make it as it took a little longer getting ready. It was just before 5:30 when I got there and to my surprise Cassandra was already there. She came early and was on her computer in her favorite chat room. Now I know some may not understand why she like to go into chat rooms and that is okay as it is not for everyone, what matters is she enjoys it and that makes it wonderful. No different than my going to Starbucks for a few hours as Susan, just something I enjoy. That is what makes us all unique and wonderful. We can all be different in ways and yet be friends. Well I set up my computer and ordered dinner, a burger as they have really wonderful Burgers here. When my order came I was thinking I really didn’t think this out as I had a burger last night when I had dinner with Charlene and her wife and if I do get to go out to Starbucks tomorrow I usually go get a burger after that before I go home and that would make 3 nights in a row having a hamburger.

I was just finishing my burger and about half way through writing my blog when Charlene showed up, it was great she could make it out again tonight. Her wife didn’t make it as they had been out all-day shopping and left their dog alone all day in their RV so she didn’t want to leave the dog alone for that long, after all pets are more like family. Kate showed up and it was great to see her and I introduced Kate and Charlene and the 3 of us sat and talked. Now the interesting thing is even though Kate lives here in Portland and Charlene in Eastern Washington Kates job has her work over there sometimes and it turns out Charlene and Kate know a lot of the same people from their work. It really is a small world. It is amazing how many times you find you have people in common that do not know about this side of your life. Michelle and Bobbie also showed up so it was looking like we would have a good turnout. Now the softball team the Escape sponsors was doing a fund raiser, bingo so I bought a ticket and all of us played. Cassandra was the only on from our table to win but it was fun.

Sandy from up by Olympia showed up, she was down here working and stopped by for a little while to see Cassandra on her last Saturday night. It was really great to see her again. Last time I saw her was when we did our dinner at City Grill in early February. Same thing as she had been in town and stopped in to see us before driving home, she didn’t stay for dinner that night. Same as tonight as she hast to drive home tonight so she will not stay long but still great to see her. I really love going out with my friends but the night is just a little better when you see friends that don’t come out as often. We also had another girl from our group here tonight so it was going to be a good turnout.

Karaoke started and of course it gets loud and hard to talk but still fun. I tried to talk Charlene into singing but no luck, yes, I am the one who tries to get others to sing when I won’t do it myself. It was getting late and Charlene called it a night, it was sad to see her leave but I know we will get together again. Lauri also showed up, as I have said before she is our late-night girl as she does not make it out much before 9:30. I was talking to her and I don’t know why I turned around and Bob and his girlfriend Lori came in. I thing the last time I saw Bob was 2 or 3 years ago at one of the Halloween Parties. It was so wonderful to see him again. We met him when we went to Easy Street (which isn’t there any more) and that would have been 2010 I think. We hit it of with him and he has been in our group ever since. He is a pool player and that was how we met. He had seen in the group it was Cassandra’s last Saturday night so he also came out. I think we found the secret to getting girls out so every Saturday from now on will be Cassandra’s last night out. I got to talk with them for a while it was a really wonderful night out tonight.

I was talking with Lauri about our group and she was having trouble joining, lack of a picture which we require. Well I took her picture and we used my computer to set her up as a member and then I approved her so now all she hast to do is go to her e-mail and activate her account. Now the funny thing is setting up her account I learned I have been misspelling her name in all my blogs, funny not the name I would have thought I would miss spell, yes, she spells it Lauri. Well it was loud and we wanted to talk so once again we moved into the other room where it is a little less noisy. We spent about 30 or 40 minutes talking before we called it a night. It was 11:15pm another late night but so much fun and I got to see some of my friends I don’t see as much. As I have said many times Susan is really blessed with wonderful friend, more like family. Thanks to all of you as you really have made my life wonderful.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what Susan is up to on my newest blog.

Wednesday night dinner at Mothers Bistro

It is Wednesday and our group is going to dinner at Mother’s Bistro. I have been here a couple times before and it is really a nice place with wonderful food. Now I always look forward to Wednesday night dinners as I get time as Susan but more than that I get to go out with my friends and that makes the night special. I got ready early as I wanted to be downtown by 6:30 as that would give me time to find parking and get to Mothers Bistro by 7. I was right on schedule and on my way by 6. I got downtown and as I came around the corner there was a parking spot right in front of the door. I couldn’t believe my luck. I parked and saw Veronica and Cassandra right by the door. Turns out Veronica was parked right in front of me and Cassandra the first car around the corner.

We went in and they were not as busy as the last few times we have come here. Cassandra had called and got a reservation as we have 8 coming tonight. We were early so we got a small table in the bar area and waited for others to show up. We talked for a while and the waiter said our table was ready so we moved into the dinning room area as I said they were not as busy this time. This really is a nice place to go for dinner. Our waitress came over and she was the same one we have had the last 2 times I have been here and she is wonderful. We got some drinks and an appetizer as we waited.

By 7 other girls started to show up, Jeanie, Barb, Melissia, Kate, Danelle, and Teri so we actually had 9 of us here tonight. I have met Danelle a couple times before but it was a few years back she came to dinner way back when we were going to the House of Louie. She is really nice and I hope she comes out more. Teri is also really nice I met her once before a few months back when she came out to the Escape, she lives up north near Seattle so a little harder for her to get out with the group but always happy when she does.

We all ordered dinner and had a wonderful time talking. It was a wonderful night as always and it went so fast. It was after 9 before we knew it and they close at 9 but never said a word to us. Now at the end we were all telling jokes, some good and some well not so good. Any way our waitress told us a joke and a couple other employees came over and shared their jokes with us. It was a really fun social evening out. Kate was trying to get a picture of us at the table and our waitress came over and took a picture of all of us at the table. It was about 9:30 when we all left, what a fun night.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what is new in Susan’s life by reading my latest blog.

Saturday night at the Escape

Yes, once again it is Saturday and I am going to get to spend the evening with my friends at the Escape. I really love my time as Susan and the time I spend with my friends so it is an awesome night when I get to do both. Now my goal was to start early and hopefully be to the Escape by 5 as I have been busy and falling behind on my blogs. I have always tried to write my blog the next day and that has not happened the last couple weeks. I was out of the shower and just getting ready to start my makeup and something came up and it delayed me for almost an hour so needless to say I didn’t get to the Escape till 6:30.

I got there and went in and guess who was there, Kelli, it was so wonderful to see her again as it has been over a year. She actually went to Diva Las Vegas a few years back with us. It was great to talk with her for a little while. Cassandra was also there early so for once I was not the first to arrive. I ordered dinner and got out my computer.

It wasn’t long and Kate showed up as did Jan & Lynn so we had a good turnout and it was just 7 pm. Now Kelli couldn’t stay long as she was picking someone up at the airport and that was why she was in town. Now we started talking about our Mexican Cruise this October as we are all going. Now as Cassandra set this all up she gets an update on how many are going so we were looking at stateroom bookings. Now it turns out my stateroom is right next to Cassandra and Julie is just the other side of Cassandra’s. on the other side of my room two doors down will be Jan & Lynn and across the hall from me is Kate and across the hall from Julie is Robin so we have 5 staterooms really close to each other and of course we have others going that are on other levels or further down from us. We actually have 28 who have booked staterooms but we all have till the end of July to pay so we may lose a few. We are all looking forward to it, it will be my first cruise and as with Diva Las Vegas I am doing the whole trip as Susan which includes flying down and back which I have always wanted to do.

Narcist also showed up, she is not actually a member of our group but she has been coming out more regular to the Escape. We also had another girl show up so we had a good turnout tonight. Now as it got later it got busier and that is always fun as I really like to see all the different people here. Karaoke started and it is fun to listen to the singing but it makes it hard to talk. It was almost 10 when Lori showed up, as I always say she is our late-night girl. It was good to see her out again. She is also not a member but I am still trying to get her to join our group as it really is a wonderful group.

It was getting late and after 10 and I was thinking of leaving but again we were talking about our cruise so Cassandra, Jan, Lynn, Kate and I went into the back room so we could talk more. We are looking at the port excursions to see what we might like to do. We probably spent 45 minutes or more talking about this and the cruise, as I said we are all looking forward to it. By the way I have my passport now so that is one less thing I have to do for the cruise.

It was a fun night and it was after 11 when I paid my bill and said my goodbyes before calling it a night and heading for home. Thanks for reading and be sure and see what’s new on my most recent blog.

Saturday night at the Escape

It is Saturday and I am going to the Escape tonight, it has been 3 weeks as we missed 2 Saturdays as we were at Diva Las Vegas. We had a blast there so I thought I would give a few recommendations before I go on. We stayed at the Four Queens hotel casino downtown, awesome place. We were treated wonderful and they really want us to come back next year. The Hoover Dam tour, really fun and we had a great time and were treated wonderful. PF Chang at Planet Hollywood Great food and we were treated wonderful. Bahama Breeze awesome place, a must if you are in Las Vegas. For golfing the club at Sunrise and also Wild horse golf club where awesome and a good choice for a round of golf. Now there were a lot of fun things we did and had fun at all and were treated wonderful every place we went but these stuck out in my mind.

Back to tonight, I started getting ready about 4 as I wanted to get out as early as I could. I took my time and tonight I wore my wine-colored dress and of course I did a different lipstick to match my dress. I was on my way by a little after 5 and got to the Escape at 5:30, the good thing about getting here so early is parking is not an issue and it gives me a little time on my computer as I wait for other girls to show up. I ordered dinner and got out my computer but I didn’t have long to wait. Kate was the first to show up she had been out all day and had gone to a Gem show. She is sending most of the weekend as Kate. We talked for a few minutes about Diva Las Vegas and she had a lot of fun, I think she will go again next year. Cassandra showed up next and Kimberly right after her and so did Melissa so we had 5 of us here by 6. Seems we are getting out earlier. Of course, we also go home earlier, I say it is because it gets so loud when karaoke starts and it gets busy not because we are getting older.

Now the 4 of us talked for a while and I still find it interesting the differences in people, we all have different points of views on some things even though we are all transgender and feel the same about this. There are always things that should be avoided, politics and religion are 2 that come to mind. I try never to bring those into conversations and try my best to keep them out of my blog. In Las Vegas 1 night I was sitting between someone who supported Trump on my left and someone who hated Trump on my right and when the one started to talk bad about Trump I could see the other one getting mad and I knew just what to do. I held my pretty nails out and asked the dealer what she thought. She smiled at me and told me how pretty they were and we started talking about nails and it actually got the other 2 people off the topic of politics and every thing was good again. So, this is my advice, remember you never know what others think and before you say something (especially something that is controversial) you might want to avoid it. The one thing I do know about politics is you will not change how the other one feels by attacking them or calling them names, as a matter of fact you probably won’t change their minds even with polite talk about it so really no point. Opps a little off track again but I do have blonde hair so I can get away with it.

Michelle also showed up and she also had fun at Diva Las Vegas, yes this really was a lot of the conversations tonight as most of us out tonight just got back from there. Laura M. and her girlfriend also showed up and it was good to see them. Laura got her phone stolen in Las Vegas, well maybe she lost it and the person who found it kept it but either way it was tracked to an apartment complex in Las Vegas. Sadly, the police do nothing about this as it happens so often and hard to track down. She got a new phone but couldn’t get it to work as they gave her the wrong SIM card so for the last couple days in Las Vegas she had no phone. Now it is funny as I can remember not having a cell phone and it was not an issue but once you give yourself to the cell phone you become so dependent on it. Other then my parents and my phone number I don’t know any one else’s, same way with e-mails addresses, you start typing their name and the phone pulls it all up and completes it for you. Texting, e-mails, photos, cameras, navigation and so much more. When you lose it you really are cut off from everything. Luckily, they got it fixed right after she got home, I really hope this never happens to me.

Cassie also showed up for a while as did Kim, now I met Kim once before but it was several years back so I didn’t remember a lot about her, yes, I am Blonde and I am using that again. It was nice to talk with her again and catch up. She doesn’t get out much, seems she was out at the Escape several months ago bit on a night I missed. She had met a few of the girls that night so she knew a few of them which always makes it easier. She is really nice and I hope she comes out more. She is not actually a member of our group but we encouraged her to join.

Now about 8:30 it started getting really busy which was nice as they had the air conditioner on and it was a little chilly tonight here and I am almost always warm. Of course, my dress didn’t cover most of my shoulders, ladies’ outfits are just not as warm as men’s but way cuter and more fun to wear. As it got busier it did get a little warmer inside. Karaoke started and it did get loud and it was hard to have conversations any more but it was fun to listen to the songs and even sing along with a few I really liked.

Some of the girls left earlier but I stayed till about 10:30 before I called it a night. Wow how things have changed as we use to not go out till 8 or 9 and we stayed till they closed down. It was a fun night and it was sad to see it come to an end. This week I will be out 3 times as we have our Wednesday night dinner and then Thursday we are getting our together to work on our web site. Melissa has done a wonderful job with it and has moved it all over to our new web server and now she is going to move our e-mail server. I know Cassandra and I have e-mails addresses at Rosecutytgirls.com and maybe Julie so once she moves it we will have to reconfigure our e-mail program. I think Melissa & Kate also want to set up an e-mail address there as I think it would be nice for all the administrator to have an e-mail address through our group. And then next Saturday night I will also be out again. Lots of Susan time which I enjoy.

Thanks for reading and be sure and follow what I am doing as Susan on my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at Bridgeport Brewing

It is Wednesday night and we are having dinner at Bridgeport Brewing. I have never been there so I was really looking forward to it. Now this makes the 14th day in a row I have been Susan, 12 days totally as Susan, a half day of Susan and then out for dinner as Susan, it has been a fun 2 weeks. I took my time getting ready as I still enjoy the time I spend becoming Susan, it is just so relaxing.

I got downtown Portland at 6:30 and found a parking spot a half block away. I go inside and Cassandra and Kate were already there. It was good to see them again, we had an awesome time in Las Vegas. We talked for a while and waited to see who else would show up. Barb showed up just before 7 so there were 4 of us for dinner. We had a nice dinner and talked about or trip to Diva Las Vegas, Kate had a video of our group playing our big hand of Blackjack, if you are not sure what I am talking about you should read my blog from our last night in Last Vegas. We all showed Barb some of our pictures, it was a fun night.

The food was really good and the staff was wonderful it really was a nice place to go and eat, I would recommend it for a nice night out. Now Kate took a few pictures so I had to post this of our group. Now I also got to hear about Kates trip home, she flew as Kate from Las Vegas to Portland and even had a picture of her on the plane. How fun is that. I have never flown as Susan but it is on my list of things to do and I am planning of Flying as Susan to LA when we go on our cruise in October, actually most of our girls are planning on flying down. It will be so much fun. It was after 9 when we called it a night. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoy my time out with my friends.

Now a little side note, I went to Panda Express Friday night to get dinner as my male self and the young lady who helped me noticed my nails when I paid. She told me I had beautiful nails and I thanked her. She then showed me her nails and told me she couldn’t have her nails done and work there. I told her that was to bad and then she said at least she new her toes were pretty which I thought was a funny comment. Any way I told her that evened it out as my fingers may look better but I bet she had prettier feet but all the time I was thinking about my pretty pink toe nails. Any way I just thought this was an interesting conversation.

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