A Saturday Night

"Share with joy"...great advice, I think I will. Several weeks ago now Green Eyes and I had a weekend together where we had time to have some fun. We were invited to go out and meet some people with GE dressed en femme. However we decided we were not really up for a dance club. We had such a good time at the drag show when we were in Key West over the summer that we decided to find one close to home.

Of course you can't go out on a Saturday night without doing a little shopping first. We are always on the look-out for make-up for GE, especially the right foundation. It was time to try the mall and a little more upscale make-up. We stopped in the MAC store and they were very helpful. They took the time to try different shades on GE to find the right one. Then we looked at eye shadow and the girl was helpful with trying that on GE too. I have fun shopping with GE, and I think he has fun too. Sometimes it is hard for me to be sure because he is kind of quiet when we are in the stores.

Later that night we each went home to dress and Green Eyes then came to my place to finish dressing and do make-up. I helped put on the make-up. I didn't realize how long it took me. I am used to doing my own, which can be done in minutes, on him I took a very long time. I was shocked, I really lost track of time. Better late than never off we went.

Getting there a little late worked out okay, the cover to get in was less and we got to just sit at the bar, which is what we like. The show was fun. I like being out with GE and having a few beers together. Here was a first for me, and I am guessing GE too. Someone bought us drinks. A slightly older, and drunker, gentleman, with a female name that used to perform at the place we were at. He/she seemed like a regular or an owner or something. He/she seemed to like GE. It is fun to be noticed (however there were not enough straight men in there for me to be noticed). He/she even followed us out the door at the end of the night. I think GE enjoyed the attention and we both hated for the night to be over so quickly. As a GG though, the fun of the attention can quickly turn to scary and creepy, like being followed out.

It was a good thing that Green Eyes was driving again. I had a few drinks in a short amount of time, I was toasty. We did get a couple of pictures, but need to take more next time. Hopefully we won't have to wait so long before going out again. I told GE that next time he has to do his own make-up, so we can get out in a more timely fashion. I'll have to fill you in on what GE wore next time, this is where I exhibit "guy" behavior and can't remember what either one of us wore (sorry Babe, feel free to fill in).

Hello... again

First and foremost, thank you Ms. Petra for mentioning my blog in Voyages en Rose. It was such perfect timing for me. I have not posted in such a long while, I can hardly believe how long, and had just spoken with Green Eyes on the same subject the other day. He asked me to write about a fun night out we had (which I will do very soon). I was hesitant to write about it because I was feeling my blog writing was becoming a little one dimensional. I tend to filter myself quite a bit. (Babe, stop rolling your eyes, lol).

When I first started this blog I intended to write about many different aspects of myself and my life. One big part of my life is my love, who is a cross-dresser. I do accept it and I do support it (and sometimes I do say I have encourage/created a monster, lol). We have fun together. I hope you can see that from the things I have posted so far. As I look back, that is all I have written so far. That is my one dimensional dilema. If I am to be honest, there have been moments of unhappiness along the way too.

I think I need to open the filter a little. I spoke with GE about this too. I told him that sometimes I don't want to write about negative feelings because I don't want him to take things the wrong way or feel like I am putting personal issues out there for others to see before him. After talking and thinking, I realize that I filter myself with GE too, much to his frustration I would guess. I think trying to open up and express more here might help me do the same in other aspects of my life.

As a disclaimer to my GE, and anyone else who reads this blog, one bad moment, one bad day or one unhappy comment does not mean I am no longer accepting or supportive. It is just one moment in time that will move along. Even if you love pizza and you could eat it every day, there might be a day when you don't feel like pizza, it doesn't mean you don't love to eat pizza (Babe, I think I feel like having pizza tonight, I hope you read this before dinner).

In the future I hope to give a more rounded picture of life. Maybe I will write about my kids, or my school work, or my dysfunctional relationship with my mom (probably not, that could take up an entire blog on its own) along with the fun the Green Eyes and I have together. I would also love to hear from readers. I am open to answering questions, topic suggestions and anyone who knows me knows that I love to give my opinion.

Hopefully we'll have more fun, finding Her, She, ME! Thanks again Petra!
