My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Sunday and a few hours at Starbucks.

It is Sunday afternoon and I have some free time well I have some studding to do but I can do that as Susan at Starbuck’s. I was ready a little before 3 and went down the street to the Starbuck’s by my house, they were packed the only open seats were a couple along the window at the counter in the corner or a couple at the big table which had two ladies at, one at each end on the same side so I put my computer in the middle across the table from them and then went and stood in line to get my drink. Now of course I immediately notice the one who was younger in her early 20’s at most had beautiful long red nails. They were both studding and of course I had studding to do but first I had to write my blog from Thursday when I went to the nail salon, I am actually 2 blogs behind, so we really didn’t pay any attention to each other. It was a little after 4 when the one lady left so it was just me and the girl with the pretty red nails. And as I said we really didn’t pay any attention to each other but it was nice to be sitting at a table with other people. She was reading on a tablet and taking notes, okay maybe I did pay a little attention.

Well she went up to get another drink and set her tablet down and I could see it was all about nails. Well she came back to the table and sat down and I don’t know why I asked her what she was studding and she told me she was in beauty school which I kind of already figured out. The next thing I know we were talking about her school and what she liked and didn’t like about beauty school. Any way she introduced herself, her name s Riley. For the next 30 minutes or so we would talk on and off, it was really nice but as all things soon she had to leave and I was back to just focusing on my studding. I finished up on what I had to do and then started working on my blog from Saturday night which was Saint Patrick’s Day. It was ab out 5:45 when my battery on my computer got really low so I moved to a table by the window where I could plug it in, yes by now there were only about 6 other people here. Starbuck’s really is a nice place to go for a few hours and get things done and the fact I can get Susan time just makes it that much better. I have no idea how many times I have gone to Starbuck’s as Susan but I have been going there since at least 2009.

I stayed at Starbuck’s till they closed at 6:30 before leaving. I went to Wendy’s for dinner before heading home.

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

Thursday night at the nail salon

It is Thursday night and I am going to the nails salon for a pedicure and fill. Now I really don’t need one as both my toes and fingers look great still although my finger nails are getting a little long. This really is the one problem I have with getting my nails done with acrylic. I really could go 3 weeks between fills but they get pretty long by then at least for my male side. Even my pedicure held up well 6 weeks and no chips but it is all about timing. You see 4 weeks from today I will be back at Dream Nails for a pedicure and a full set of long acrylic nails for my trip to Diva Las Vegas. I got home and called Dream nails to get an appointment and Anna could get me in at 5 so I had about 1 ½ hours to get ready.

I took my time getting ready, I really like it more when I am not rushed. I know some people think it is strange to spend that much time getting ready just to go to the nail salon or a few hours at Starbuck’s and even I can’t explain it other than I enjoy it. Now I had my makeup done and still had time so I decided to wear my corset for the evening as I really do like the way it makes my waist look and really it is really comfortable other then in and out of the car and maybe a long drive in the car. I got to Dream nails just before 5 and went in, they were really slow tonight, only 1 lady getting a pedicure so Anna was ready to start. Of course, I had to pick a color for my toes, I went with a purple color this time.

Anna started on my nails and it is such a relaxing feeling to have someone do your nails. As she worked we talked a little. She asked if I wanted the deluxe pedicure tonight which I have done once before, as I said it was slow and Anna said it had been slow all week so I am sure they were looking for more services to do. I think it is that time of year as taxes are do in a couple weeks and also property taxes in a little over a month so people are probably a little tighter with their money. Any way I decided to go for the deluxe pedicure, $20 more but it is really relaxing. The main difference is they use a scented lotion and creams and even sent the water, I went with Lavender. They also put a cream on your leg and then wrap it in a hot towel for a while and also give your foot a paraffin wax treatment to soften your feet plus I think the message your legs and feet longer. Not something I would do all the time as it would get expensive but will probably do again in 4 weeks right before Diva Las Vegas and the same for the Cruise this fall.

As Anna did my nails another lady came in and she also got her nails done and was at the next table to me so we did talk a little about nails. It really is an enjoyable experience. I tell everyone you need to get a pedicure and acrylic nails at least once just to experience it and I got a feeling you will probably do it more often once you try it. Anna did a great job on my nails and soon they were just as pretty but a little shorter. Now it was time for my pedicure.

Kathy was once again doing my pedicure, Anna and Kathy always do a wonderful job as do all the people here and I have had several of them do my nails at one time or another. It is funny as I did come here a few times early on but I have been coming here every 2 to 3 weeks now for 2 years and I will have had acrylic nails now for 11 months although thinner than most woman and of course no pretty colors but they still look great. Now as I said I wore my corset today and sitting at the table getting my nails done was fine but sitting in the pedicure chair was not as comfortable, note to self when getting a pedicure, no corset. Kathy did a wonderful job on my feet and it was so relaxing, the deluxe pedicure is the way to go if you can. Normally it takes about an hour to get my fill and pedicure but it was closer to 1 ½ hours. Now partly because the deluxe pedicure takes longer but I have noticed that if they are busy then tend to rush a little more to get people through and this is just not Dream Nails but all nail salons I have gone to and I have talked to others and they say the same. If you do want to get your nails done my two tips, get an appointment and try to avoid really busy times. It was time for the polish and Kathy put the first coat on and as it dried it last all its shine, to say the least I was not happy at the color I had picked but I figured in 4 weeks I would change it. Kathy put a second coat on and the same and then the top coat. The top coat did put a nice shine on it and to my surprise it really looked great and really shiny, turns out it was a great choice. It was 6:30 when I left the Dream Nails

After my nail appointment went across the street to Starbuck’s as I had about 1 ½ hours till they closed and did some work and caught up on some e-mails. Some of the e-mails were questions I get asked from other transgender and non-transgender and probably the most asked is why I do this. There is no simple answer to this, I have talked with other crossdressers and there is no defining thing or moment in our lives we can point to and say this is it, this is why. We just do. Why do some people like chocolate and others don’t? why do some people like sports and others don’t? why do some men have facial hair and others don’t? why do some woman wear dresses, have long hair or nails and others don’t? In the end it comes down to personal preference and that is it. I am more comfortable this way even though when I am out I really am not thinking about how I am dressed. I really don’t know why, I do know that when I dress I do try to emulate what I find attractive in women. The other thing people think is I must be gay and from what I have learned most (75% or more) are straight males. Their dressing has nothing to do with their sexual attraction. As I said for me I try to emulate what I find attractive and for me that is the female body, shape, form, and look. Hair on a body, arms, chest is not at all attractive and I do everything I can to have a smooth clean body.

The other question is am I going to, or when will I transition an d the answer to that is I am not going to as that is not right for me. Now these are my thoughts and observations on these things and I am by no means an expert so remember that before you tell me I am wrong. Talking with both transsexuals and crossdressers there seems to be some common thing and things that are specific to just one. Both have a need to be feminine (or other sex depending on if you are MTF or FTM). The difference is about your body. Transsexuals need to physically be the other gender, they feel their body is wrong. Crossdressers need to present, be accepted as the other gender. From just looking at them you can’t tell as it is all about how they see themselves.

Now for me yes when I am Susan I would love to have real breast, hips, narrower shoulder, 5 to 7 inches shorter, no bulge between my legs but it is because of how it looks and how people see me, it is not about my body being wrong, it is the outward appearance. When I am not Susan I don’t think about it and is I did have real breast then I would be crossdressing the other way as when I was not Susan I would need to bind them down to hid them. Now I do know some crossdressers that have told me they would love to have breast and they would if they could but again there is that key words, love to have them not they their body is wrong or they are not truly who they are without them. It’s like saying I would love to have a million dollars and doing what I can to get it, verse having to have a million dollar to feel you are complete. The way I look at it is if I won 10 million dollars tomorrow how would my life change. For me I would dress as Susan most of the time, pierce my ears, have long acrylic nails and maybe even grow my hair out, surgery not something I would do. A transsexual the first thing on their list would be surgery. Now this is a simple way of looking at it and there is more to t than this but it is a good start and what I have learned.

Wow got a little off topic but that’s okay. Starbucks was a little slow tonight but a relaxing time while I gave the polish on my toes time to fully dry. After Starbucks I went through the drive thru and then home. It was a relaxing 4 hours.

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

A little more Susan time on Sunday

Well it is a beautiful warm sunny Sunday afternoon and I had some free time and needed to finish up on my Studying and what better way than as Susan. I was ready by 3 and wore my black skirt and my ankle boots, kind of a dressy casual look. I got to Starbucks about 3:30 and went in and sat at the big table as it was too bright and hot with the sun coming through the windows to sit right there.

I spent about an hour in a half doing my studying before taking a break to write my blog. It really was a relaxing afternoon and I got a lot done. I finished my blog a little after 6 and I had to figure out what to do as they close at 6:30 on Sundays. I needed gas so I drove to Costco and got gas and then it was what turned out to be my usual Sunday night dinner at Wendy’s. I have gone here several times as Susan and a few times as my male self and have never seen a male worker till tonight. There was one male working here tonight and the rest female.

Now they were busy and I had to stand in line, in front of me was a young couple with the most adorable little girl about 3. She was dancing around and smiling and talking with everyone in line and she kept coming back to me and looking at my boots. Any way soon it was there turn to order and the mom took the little girl over to a table and the man ordered a burger and a couple glasses of water and then pulled out a pocket full of change mostly pennies to try and pay for it. Now I felt bad so I gave him some money so he could order food for all of them. He thanked me and ordered more food. Now I felt really good it was the best money I have spent.

Now I spent about an hour here finishing my studying as I ate. It was a really good evening out. It really is nice being light later now. I got home a little after 8 and so ends my vacation. Tomorrow back to work. Thanks for reading and be sure to see what’s new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.

Little Susan time on Thursday

The week has been busy, I had hoped to get out to dinner with my friends on Wednesday night but it was after 6 when I got home. So, I was setting my sights on Thursday as I have till midafternoon free. I got up Thursday morning and started getting ready. I was ready a little before 10. I was going to Lloyd Center for a little shopping. I got there about 10:15 and went in. Now Lloyd Center is not busy and has not been for a long time at least when I have gone. Nordstrom’s closed a while back and Sears will close on April 8th and there are a couple other stores that have signs in the windows everything must go so guessing they will also close plus there are several that are empty or closed. I am wondering if the mall will survive.

Any way my first stop was Sears to see what they had left which is not much but pretty much everything is 50% to 60% off I looked through the clothes and shoes and they are pretty well picked over at least in my size. From here it was out into the mall, I went into Suncoast, Macy’s, Ulta, Ross, Torrids, and a few others I can’t remember the names of. It really was more about just being out for a while. I even spent a little time in Barnes & Noble which is a good place to pass time. It was a little after 12 when I left Lloyd Center.

Now as I said I don’t have a lot of time today as I have to be someplace at 4 as my male self so I decided to get closer to home so I don’t get caught in rush hour traffic later. I decided I would go to Starbucks for a while and I decided to try a new one, turns out there is one right next to the Wendy’s I have been going to so that was where I would go.

I got there about 12:30 and went in, wow they were really busy and there was only 1 table open right by the door, and there were 3 people in line so I set my stuff down on the table and went and ordered my drink. There were also a lot of young kids who came in but they all got drinks to go. There was also a draft every time the door opened probably why this was the last table open, glad I got a hot chocolate today. I stayed here till 2:30 before heading home.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what new in my life on my most recent blog.

Thursday night trip to the nail salon

Okay first I did get out for a few hours last Sunday evening to Starbucks to study. I spent about 3 hours at the Starbucks by my house, no computer just my books. Any way on to today. I have been going to the Nail salon on Fridays the last few times but this week I would not be able to get there till probably next Tuesday which was my plan as my nails still looked good. Well till Tuesday night. I seem to have hit my nails just right and broke off a piece of the acrylic. funny as I didn’t break the nail just some acrylic. I was able to fix with some OPI nail envy which is a nail strengthener and goes on a little thick. It kind of covered the sharp edges but just didn’t look right so I decided I needed to go get it fixed. I got home late about 4:30 and called Dream Nails to see if Anna could fit me in, she always manages as I really think most people just show up and don’t call for an appointment. Any way I had a 5:30 appointment so I had 1 hour to get ready and get there, only a couple minute drive so I would be.

I got there just before 5:30 and only had to wait a couple minutes for her to finish with someone else. I really do like my trips to the nail salon as it is so relaxing. Anna started on my nails and yes, she had to remove the acrylic on the nail I broke and redo it. She did a wonderful job as always. They were a little busy as there was a young girl sitting next to me just finishing up on her nails and 3 woman getting pedicures. Any way about 6:20 I once again had beautiful nails although shorter. Now I am already thinking about Diva Las Vegas which is coming up fast. 6 weeks from today I will once again be here at the nails salon to get my acrylic nails for the trip 11 days and yes, they will be longer and a pretty color.

After the nail salon I went across the street to Starbucks till 8 to work on my blog and do a little studding (very little). It is nice as I have been coming here so regular most of the workers know me by name and I am getting to know some of their names. I walked in and Alan the young man working tonight welcomed me by name and asked if I wanted my usual hot chocolate which I did. It really makes you feel welcome when this happens. I know it is all about customer service but it still feels good. It is funny as I never went to a Starbucks before the first time I did as Susan and even still I think I have only been there 3 or 4 times when I am not Susan, kind of my girl thing to do. But I like coming here so much last year I bought stock in Starbucks.

It was about 8 when I left and drove over to Burger King as I was hungry, I went through the drive through and then went home. Again, a funny side note about 15 to 20 years ago a big night out for me was to take a late-night drive, after 11pm and then if I could work up my courage a quick trip through burger kings drive through.

Not sure if I will make it out this weekend as I have family stuff to do but next week I am once again on vacation and hope to get out several times. I really can’t explain why I like going out as Susan but I do.

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

Saturday at the Escape, getting there early

It is Saturday and I am going out for the evening to the Escape, not sure who else will be there but that is okay. My plan was to get there early and do some studying before others showed up. The next couple weeks my Susan time will be limited mostly sur of the moment outings which can also be fun. It is nice though to know when you will be going out though as it gives you time to plan and think about it and plan.

Well I started getting ready about 3:30 with the plan of being ready by 5. I was right on schedule. Now if you have been following my blogs you know I bought a corset several weeks ago from Orchard Corset and I have been wearing most times I go out as I have found it really does nice me a nice shape. Well I tried putting it on a little lower as my shape is not quiet the same as the typical female and this actually works better as it gives me better hips. Also wearing it so much has made it fit better and easier to lace up as it has somewhat formed to my body. It is the last thing I put on before my dress and hair. So tonight, I got it all on and had a nice shape. Now it was time for my dress. I had several on the bed and tried a couple but my blue and black one which was the second one I tried was the one I was going for tonight. Well I put the other 4 back in the closet and had the one I was going to wear but I decided to see if I could tighten the corset a little more as I have had it on for about 10 minutes now and yes to my amazement I could. So, I guess the trick is put the corset on and move around a little and then tighten again. Looking in the mirror I would say my waist was 4 or 5 inches smaller than my hips, I had an hourglass shape that looked great. The dress was on and the hair and I looked great. Corsets really do give you a nice shape.

It was just after 5 and I got my stuff and went down to the garage to get in the car, I have a smaller car. Wow getting in was hard and I couldn’t breathe. By the time I was in the car I had to sit a moment and catch my breath. Sitting in a low car seat with a corset, especially if it is tight is not real comfortable and a little hard to breathe. It is only a short drive but I was gals when I got to the Escape, it was just as hard getting out of the car. I went in and was glad I would be sitting on a hard chair that doesn’t sink down. I put my stuff on a table and noticed Lee over at the bar. She is one of our newer members, only her 3rd time out. I went over and said hi to her and she came over and joined me at the table.

She was here with her Sister, yes, she has come out to her sister and she is supportive of her which is great. Now it is funny as each time she has come out she has come out with someone different, tonight being her sister, they were actually meeting 2 other women tonight and then going someplace else. Wow she has come a long way fast I still have not come out to anyone from my male side although at least 1 of my neighbors know and I am guess more do. The five of us sat and talked for about an hour till it was time for them to leave at 6:30 as they had 7 pm reservations. I told them how great it was they were supportive of Lee especially her Sister. They were all really nice. On the way out, Lee’s Sister thanked me for looking after Lee which was nice and of course made me feel good.

Now I was by my self at least as far as our group but there were some people around me at tables. I got my book out and started reading. I discovered long ago I am not a reader, some people love to read books I have always believed if a book was good enough to read it would be a movie. Anyway, reading a boring text book is not easy. This I going to be a long couple of weeks and I am not sure I will get through the whole book. I read about an hour till Kate showed up. I was glad when she got there as it gave me a reason to put my book away which probably is not the right attitude.

Kate and I talked for a while mostly about why we like to dress and we still really can’t explain it. Kates girlfriend knows she dresses but Kate just told her that she goes out as Kate and she is taking it well, but that is how we got on the topic of why we dress. I really don’t have a defining reason why, I guess it is like asking someone why they like ice cream or chocolate. The reason is they like the taste, it not like you can give a long list of reasons you just like it. I just like dressing up and being Susan. I can spend an hour getting ready to go sit at Starbucks for a few hours and do work, my blog, e-mails or just goof off on the computer. Something I could do just as easy at home or even as my male self at Starbucks so it really doesn’t make sense. When I am at Starbucks I do kind of people watch but not as much as I use to and I am not really thinking about how I am dressed or how I look, hopefully cute. There really is no reason I can come up with other then I am just being me, just being who I am. I think so many of us want to be able to point to one thing, one point in time, one event that happened to us and say this is why but I have never found that. This is just who I am and I have accepted that and I think that makes all the difference. If you can accept yourself for who you are that is all that matters.

Kate and I were beginning to think we would be the only ones tonight but then Laura M and her girlfriend showed up and shortly after Teri Lee showed up. She is one of our newer members and came down from the Seattle area. I have exchanged messages with her so it was wonderful to meet her in person. She was meeting another girl she became friends with through our group named Andi who also came out tonight. I met Andi at Diva Las Vegas last year and she joined our group. It was good to see her again and get to know more about her. She actually met Teri Lee a couple weeks ago for Teri Lee’s first time out, tonight is her second and she was doing really well. Our group the Rose City T-girls is really a wonderful social group, but what makes it so special is the help it gives to helping new t-girls come out in the world. It really is a wonderful feeling, like earlier tonight when Lee’s sister thanked me for helping Lee it made me feel good but I have to admit I really love the feeling of helping someone new come out and become themselves. I remember my first time out and the next few times and the girls who helped me. Lori the girl who tapped on my car window and asked if I was going in just as I was about to leave for the 4th time without getting out of my car. Alice who I met after going out just a couple times and mad me feel so welcome and helped me get over my sheer terror. Cassandra who formed this group that I have been part of now for years. They all has such big impacts on my life and if I can do that for just one girl then I am the lucky one.

Another girl also showed up so we had 6 of us here tonight and we all had a great time talking and yes it was a busy night as there was standing room only. It is always fun when there are so many people here but it also makes it loud and hard to talk especially when Karaoke started but it was a fun night. Even talked with a few of the regulars here not from our group which is always fun. It was a really good night out, of course I stayed out later then I planned.

It was about 11:30 when I called it a night. I had been here about 6 hours but didn’t seem like it. I paid my bill and said my goodbyes. I went and got in my car and wow as hard ass it was earlier getting into my car it was worse now. Don’t get me wrong, I love my new corset and I am thinking of getting another but the drive home was hard, sitting in the low seat sunken in I was really uncomfortable. All I could think about was getting home and taking off the corset. May have been a little on the tight side but hopefully I will get use to it as I love the look it gives me, bit only short drives when it is tight.

Little long tonight but thanks for reading and be sure and see what’s new with Susan on my most recent blog.

Some study time as Susan

Okay I taking a few classes for work kind of and as such I have a lot of reading to do, a book in two weeks and reading is not a favorite thing for me to do so I really need to focus and of course that is where Starbucks comes in. I went to Starbucks last Sunday evening for about 3 hours to read and the reason I am writing it now is I didn’t take my computer as I knew that would distract me. Any way the class goes 3 weeks a couple nights a week and a couple Saturdays. It was a little strange to go there without my computer as that is something I have never done before but it was fine and I did get almost all the reading done for my first class.

Well now it is Friday night and I need to do some more studding as from the classes this week we will probably only cover half the book in class and yet the test will be on all of it. So that means Starbucks again tonight. I am taking my computer though as I will need to make some notes I will need to take and of course I need to write up some stuff for class. I was ready a little before 5 and was on my way. I went to the Starbucks just down the street from my house which is open till 8 so I figured I would start with that and see how far I get. They were about average for how busy they were so I had no problem finding a table and working.

Well I actually only stayed here till about 6:30 as I saw I was going to need way more time and I knew the Starbucks on Mill Plain is open till midnight so I left and headed up there. I got there about 7 and they were a little busier but also a bigger Starbucks. I was able to get a table away from the window to do my work which included a workbook as I went through the chapters. It was not really how I wanted to spend a Friday night but at least I got to do it as Susan and yes, I got way more down than I would have at home. I got through 6 chapters before I was having trouble focusing, after all I have been working on this since 5 and it was just before 11 when I decided that was enough for tonight. I will try and finish it tomorrow.

Now it was time to het out my computer and just have some fun on the internet. Of course, it would only be a short while as they close at midnight but I won’t make it that late as I have a busy day tomorrow. I have some things I have to do in the morning, class from 11 to 3 and then Susan time tomorrow night. Now the whole time I was here doing my class work I really didn’t think about how I was dressed I was just doing my work a great feeling. Well I picked the right time to stop as they now close at 11. I was only able to spend a little time on my computer before they started closing up. I got home about 11:15 but it was a fun night.

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

Sunday afternoon and the end of my vacation.

It is Sunday afternoon and my vacation officially ends and I am back at work tomorrow. Now the big questions are my nails, they look great and I have been wearing this same color polish wedding dress for several months now so that is not my concern it is the length. When I got them done for my vacation on February 2nd I didn’t have the shorten them so it has in fact been almost 4 weeks since they were shortened and even then they were a little long for a man as I got them done on January 17. If I don’t file them down myself and wait till my next nails salon visit which will be this coming Friday they will be pretty long and that will draw attention. Right now, that is my plan though.

Any way I really didn’t have plans for today as I had things I had to do but I got done early except for some work I had to do on the computer. Well you guessed it Starbucks as Susan won out. Now I find if I stay at home to do work I get side tracked to easy as there are too many distractions (TV). I have found I can actually take an hour to get ready and drive to Starbucks and still get more done then if I sit at home. Now I have been asked many times what I do for work that I can go to Starbucks as Susan and work, well without going into details to much it does not have to do with my regular job but other things I am involved with.

It was earlier than normal when I started getting ready so I was on my way by 2:30 so I had 4 hours I could be at the Starbucks by where I live as they are open till 6:30 on Sunday evenings. I got there and parked and went in, they were actually busy for a Sunday afternoon. I ordered my drink and then put my computer down on the big long table as all the other tables were taken and there were 2 other people at this table. I would eventually have to move to another table as my computer battery is at half as I forgot to plug it in last night so I am good for about 2 hours maybe.

I started my work and as I said it is way easier to focus on it here. I had been here about a half hour when one of the tables next to the window opened up so I moved over and plugged my computer in. I kept working and till about 4 when I took a break and wrote my blog from last nights outing at the Escape. Okay yes there are also distractions here at Starbucks too but I did work for 1 ½ hours straight. I finished my blog a little after 5 and it was right back to work as I still have some to do. I was all finished by 5:30 and n ow I am just going to play around on my computer for a little while till they close and then grab something to eat before going home.

People ask me why I go to Starbucks so much and I really have no answer for them. When I am here I am not really focused on anyone else, I do notice people but just as I would anyplace I go no matter how I am dressed. I am not really even thinking about how I am dressed or that I am out as Susan. I am just out being myself. There is something about being able to go out as Susan and just be another person out. Now I will say I have gone to many different Starbucks and never had a problem and always been treated wonderful so it is kind of a safe place to go as most people here are to busy with what they are doing or they are in and out that they don’t even notice you or if they do I didn’t notice them although I am sure I have gotten some looks I just didn’t notice. As a matter of fact, today 3 women as they went by said hi to me which is nice.

I stayed here till about 6:30 before going to Costco for gas and then a quick trip to Wendy’s for dinner. Now I did go in and eat there. The funny thing was it was an all-female crew working. It was a relaxing afternoon and evening and I got a lot done. Here are a couple pictures of my nails as they are now. They are a little long but cute.

Thanks for reading my blogs and keeping up with my life as Susan, be sure and check out my most recent blog.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Friday shopping with friends

It is Friday and I am going to Clackamas Tow Center again to go shopping with Melissa & Mikaela, we are meeting at 11am. I started getting ready about 8:30 and of course I was still deciding what to wear as I was doing my makeup. It has been a fun week but as all things it must come to an end as I have something I have to do tonight which means the red nail polish will have to come off. I will have to be home by 5 so I can remove the nail polish and change back from being Susan but as I said it has been a great week and today will be just as fun. I was ready to leave a little after 10 and on my way. I got to Clackamas Town Center about 10 minutes early so I texted them I was there and both were just parking.

Melissa was the first to show up so we talked for a couple minutes till Mikaela got there. Mikaela brought her daughter who is almost 2 and so cute, what could be more fun than 3 women walking the mall this way. We started off with lunch in the food court which was nice although I ate to much, no dinner tonight. We sat and talked and caught up and Mikaela and Melissa got to know each other as this was the first time they met. Of course, we had to get a group picture of the 3 of us at the mall also. It really is more fun to go shopping with friends. Now it really wasn’t about the shopping it was more about being with my friends. We mostly just wandered around the mall talking and looking and having fun. We did go into several stores, even the tow stores as we had Mikaela’s daughter with use and this was a lot of fun as I got to look at toys for little girls. Mikaela really is a wonderful mom.

We went into several stores and Mikaela bought several things, she likes to shop, she even bought so candy for her wife and also some other things. I saw some cute things but nothing I just had to have so I was being good. One of the stores we went into was called Maurices and I had never been in there before. It is similar to Torrid as it caters to the larger size which I seem to fit into. They had some really cute things and I did find a maroon color leather coat which was really cute, size 2 and what do you know it fit me. Now I am not a big coat fan as even in my male side I only wear them when I will be outside for an extended time. Even in winter I am more likely to have on a sweatshirt than a coat. But I have thought I should have something as all I really have is a couple thin wraps, a sweater and my heavy wrap. I thought a coat would be nice and it was on sale for 75% off so it was only $17 just too good to pass up.

We walked around and talked some more and we got on the subject of Facebook, now this may get me in trouble but what the heck. We got talking about all the negative stuff on Facebook yes talking mostly about political stuff and it is on both sides. I brought up how I was tired off all this negativity and I have actually just overlook some as there was just so much. Now I am not saying you don’t have that right as it is your Facebook page but remember all your friends see it and trust me not all your friends feel the same even if the vast majority do. We all have different views beliefs and that does not make us better, or worse just different. I want to view Facebook to see what’s going on in your life not to be given a political, or religious lesson. I want to know about you not how bad someone else is. I don’t even look at these posts anymore.

It was after 2 and Mikaela had to leave as she lives an hour south and wanted to try and beat traffic. Melissa and I hung out a little more and walked back down the mall and to the outside part where they have a few more stores including a Charming Charlies and a DSW. We went into the DSW and looked at shoes, Melissa is looking for some casual tennis shoes and I am kind of looking for some nice flats I can wear. Found a few pairs but not in our size.

It was almost 3 when we walked back to Barns & Noble and walked out to our cars. It was a fun day with my friends. Thanks Melissa & Mikaela for going shopping with me. I got home and yes, the first thing I did was remove the red nail polish, it was sad to see the red go. I will be out Saturday night with my friends again but no Wednesday night dinner this week as it is Valentine’s Day, so I am wishing you all a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

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

Thursday and just going out with no real plan

I got up today and had no real plan for what I wanted to do. I started getting ready as all I knew was I was going out. I was ready a little after 11 and decided I was going to upgrade my phone so I was going down to Clackamas Town Center at least for a little bit. Yes, I am going as Susan to upgrade my phone and plan that is in my male name. I got to

Clackamas a little after 12 and had to take a quick selfie in the car. I walked by the store to see if the girl who helped me was there and she was but she was helping someone and there were a couple people waiting so I went into the Starbuck for a little while. I ordered my green tea and talked with a lady as we waited for our drinks. I sat there with my computer for a while, actually I lost track of time and before I knew it, it was 1:30.

I walked over to the Sprint store and went in and the young lady remember me and welcomed me back. Her name is Cassia and she is wonderful. I told her I wanted to get a new plan and told her I was a current Sprint customer. She asked for my phone number and I gave it to her and then she asked me the name which I gave her my male name and then she asked for ID which I gave her and told her I looked a little different today. She smiles and told me I looked great. Now Cassia had my real name and yet she always called me her and she and not once slipped and referred to me in a male way at any time. She was very professional.

Now she got my phone all set up and transferred all my files over and then showed me how some of the functions work as there are some differences. Of course, I had to test the camera with one more selfie. By the way I am wearing my new lipstick, I am liking the way it looks. It was almost 3 by the time everything was transferred and set up. Cassia thanked me for coming in and said if I have any issues or questions to be sure and come back. It was a really good experience. Now the funny side note the other day when I was in here Cassia was working with another young lady who had on a really pretty red lipstick which I complimented her on but Cassia had no lipstick on. Fast forward to today she had in a really pretty coppery lipstick that looked awesome on her, of course I complimented her on how much I liked her lipstick.

I got in my car and got it synced to my car and was just leaving when Cassandra texted me to see if I wanted to meet up for the afternoon so I called her. We decided to meet at McMenamins Ringlers Pub again, we spent a few hours here yesterday before we went to dinner. It took me about a half hour to get there and parked. I went in and got a table and ordered food as I was hungry, their pretzel and cheese fondue which is awesome. I had almost finished it when Cassandra arrived a little after 4.

We both had our computers, Cassandra set up and was in the chat room while I checked just surfed the internet and had fun. We also talked while we were doing this so it was a fun time. It was amazing how fast the time pasted. We stayed there till after 8 but it seemed like only an hour or two. It was a really fun day. Tomorrow I am meeting Mikaela and Melissa at 11am for some shopping which will be a lot of fun.

Okay I just have to ask, what do you think of the lipstick I am wearing? I have never used this shade and want others honest opinion. Thanks for your help and for reading. Have a great day and be sure and keep up with my life as Susan on my most recent blog.
