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).

It sounds like it was a great fun night out. One of my goals is to have my wife go out with me while I am dressed...anywhere.
We are waiting to get the deatails of what each of you were wearing...head to toe.

Silly girl, I wore my jean skirt with a purple top and little black patent flip flops as a red head. I looked good ;-) Think it's time to retire that outfit though and go for one of my black dresses next time ;-) I reeeeally can not wait! The more often I do it, the easier it is. It is kinda interesting to be on the "Other side" for a change. lol

Oh, makeup takes forever. That and the shaving that has to precede it...
