The Family Reunion

We attended a family reunion for Linda’s side last weekend. There were her immediate family of mother, sister Julie, and the brother-in-law, John in attendance along with several aunts, uncles, and cousins… many which we only see once every few years. The best part is that it is a potluck dinner with great and abundance food. Plus it only lasts for a few hours.

As we were going through the line filling our plates the host asked who had cooked the casserole. Since I was next to him I stated that Linda had prepared it. John was standing beside me and got a funny look on his face. As we were sitting at the table John asked me who really had cooked it and I confirmed again that Linda had. “I thought you did all of the cooking in your family,” he said, just loud enjoy that I was sure everyone at our table, as well as the other tables, heard it. In doing so, he had informed everyone about my role in our relationship, whether intentional or not. Thankfully, nothing more was said about it.

After dinner, I was sitting in the living room with John and two other husbands, watching a NASCAR race on the big screen TV when Linda’s sister walked over with a baby in her arms. Without warning, she place the child on my lap and said “watch Patty’s baby while I help clean up.” And there I sat with this infant looking at me with as much of a surprise look as I had. John chuckled as the other husbands starred in disbelief. I sure they were wondering “what kind of man would let a woman just drop a kid on him like that?” There was nothing I could do but just sit there and try to keep the baby happen.

John looked at me and said “I see you make a good mother as well.” I am glad he didn’t go into any details for the other men. But we both knew what he meant. Just another set towards the feminine for me.

Car Trip Conversations

Last week Linda and I enjoyed a short mini-vacation that included an eight hour car ride each way. I always look forward to these trips as it gives us the time to talk in complete privacy and without phone calls or other interruptions. Of course part of our conversations always include discussion of our practiced lifestyle; mainly what we like or what we wish to change about it.

I started things off by mentioning our recent entertainment of family and my increased exposure to them as Beverly. A few weeks ago we had my mother, sister and brother-in-law as well as Linda’s mother, sister, and her husband over for dinner. During their visit I cooked and served dinner while wearing a frilly apron that looked like a dress on me. A comment was made about what nice legs I had and soon I found myself walking around wearing hose and high heels in front of everyone. Our families now knew about my feminine side so I asked Linda what the future held for me in that regards.

Linda stated that she saw no reason why I should hide ‘Beverly’ from the family anymore. She said that it was only a matter of time before I would be appearing before them in full make-up and feminine attire. She asked me if I was ok with that to which I replied that was a big step and I wasn’t sure if I was ready for that.

“But you are ready to let Darryl see you as Beverly, aren’t you?” she stated, quickly changing the subject. So then it was time to talk about Darryl and what the future held there. I told Linda that I would find it hot to dress as Beverly for Darryl to see. She reminded me that Darryl is straight and probably would have no sexual interest in me.

“I don’t want to have sex with him. I just think it would be fun to act like a woman in front of him; to cook dinner for him and show him what a good wife I am for you,” I replied.

“Are you sure you aren’t auditioning for the part of playing his wife when he is here?” Linda asked with a smile. “Are you going to come on to him and flirt with him?”

“That sounds like fun to me. But as you said, he is straight,” I said with a blush. I guess she knows me pretty well and knows my hot buttons.

“Maybe we should invite another man to join us, someone who is gay or at least bisexual, so you would have someone who could appreciate your charms. We could have a double date night.”

Linda knows that I have long fantasized about the two of us double dating as two women on the make. But that was the first time she had ever brought it up.

“Are you sure you aren’t just looking for an excuse to be Darryl’s date?”

Smiling at me she said “I will probably end up as Darryl’s date regardless if anyone else is with us. He has already shown interest in me so it would take much effort to play along with it.”

I came right out and asked her if she was planning on going to bed with him, to which she replied that she had no such plans, that she just enjoyed his company and attentions. “I bet that will be on his mind when he spends the night at our house,” I commented.

“Yes, I am sure that was on his mind when you invited him to stay with us on his next trip. By your invitation, I am sure he implied that you would be ok with that happening. He just doesn’t know how I feel about it. And neither do I.” Linda had told me to call him and invite him to stay with us, so it looked like I was the one suggesting it, not her. Very clever, that girl. It will be a very interesting night when Darryl next comes calling.

Surprise visit

Linda left early Monday morning to attend a business conference in another city. She was riding with three co-workers so they picked her up at six a.m. and would drop her off at home when they got back. Linda was traveling with Anna (who knows all about ‘Beverly’ and our wife-led-marriage), Tom, and their boss Mike.

I wanted to extend my weekend so I took the day off work. That gave me the opportunity to put on my blue maid uniform and spend the day cleaning the house and preparing supper for Linda’s return. Since I had the day to myself, and hadn’t had time to indulge in my cross dressing in some time, I decided to go all out and put on make-up and wig so I really looked nice in my maid role. I only had light housecleaning to do, plus a few loads of laundry, so the day was easy and allowed me time to prepare a nice meal.

I was deeply engrossed in my cooking when I heard the car pull up in the drive. I realized that I had not told Linda of my plans of staying home and being the maid today so she would not be expecting to see me that way. I started to panic as I didn’t know if she would bring the others in or just get out of the car and come in alone.

Linda has always kept our personal life separate from her work life, with the exception of telling Anna everything. So when the door opened and Linda saw me in the kitchen in my maid’s uniform her expression was one of surprise. However, that quickly turned to a smile as she stepped through the doorway and was quickly followed by Anna. Anna broke into a big grin when she saw me, then announced that she was just stopping in to use the restroom. As she walked passed Linda I heard her whisper, “perhaps you should invite the men in.”

Linda stayed by the door and asked me “should I invite Mike and Tom in? I am sure they would like to meet my maid.” Just then I heard two car doors close and saw Linda turned back to the door. “She wouldn’t let them in to see me like this, would she?” I asked myself. My answer came as she reached for the door handle and opened the door with a smile. I quickly turned back to the stove so my back would be to our houseguests. I know I was turning bright red as I heard the door shut and Linda say “this is our maid, Beverly. I forgot that she was coming today.” I heard them say hi, but refused to turn towards them and just kept stirring the pot on the stove. Anna came back from the restroom and gave a little giggle as she realize that Tom and Mike had come into the house. Thankfully, the guys were in a hurry and didn’t speak to me. They said their goodbyes to Linda and the three of them left. I still didn’t turn around as I was afraid they would still be there. I heard their car leave as Linda came up and put her arms around my waist. “That must have been a thrill for you, getting caught by my boss and co-worker. But don’t worry. I could tell that they didn’t realize who you were. If they had, Tom would definitely said something about it.”

So from the back I guess I passed. But it sure made me nervous while it was going on.

Life's little disappointments

As you have probably guessed by now, not much has happened for me to write about. The party for friends and family on the 4th turned out to be fun, but very vanilla from the WLM aspect. I was anticipating Linda exposing my feminine side to those attending, but nothing happened. When I asked her about it after the party she seemed quite surprised that I thought something would happen. She said that she guessed that she just was not in the mood for that and instead wanted to relax and enjoy the party. She asked if I was upset that I had not been exposed and I answered that I was not upset, just surprised. She said that it was good for me to be on edge, waiting for something to happen.

The other expectation that didn’t materialize was for Darryl to make an appearance on the following Monday with me serving and cooking dinner for the three of us. Unfortunately, he was unable to make the trip due to business obligations, and so another disappointment. Part of me wanted to see Linda in her little black dress and part of me wanted to serve the two of them as she exposed my sissy side to Darryl. Before learning that he wasn’t going to make it, Linda had me call Darryl and invite him to spend the night here. He usually stays in a hotel since his business is paying for the trip. I mentioned that I was nervous about inviting him to stay with us as it might be setting a precedence for future visits. She just smiled at that and told me to call him. That is when we learned that he was going to have to cancel that trip. However, he was quite pleased with my invite and said that he would look forward to it during his next trip.

Sunday night Linda and I were relaxing after having spent a very busy day working on projects around the house. We were both exhausted and plopped down on the sofa to veg out in front of the TV for the night. About ten minutes later Linda reminded me that I had promised her a pedicure that weekend and had not fulfilled my promise. Even though I was dead tired, I got up and got everything to give her a pedicure. Once I started I really enjoyed it and it capped off our weekend perfectly. I am glad that she had insisted so we could have that fun experience together.

Party time

So much to tell, so much to tell. I am cleaning house today because it looks like it is going to be a busy place this weekend. Linda decided that we should have a party Friday night and leave it open to anyone of our friends or family members who want to attend. That means we won’t know for sure how many are coming, who is coming, or what they know about our lifestyle. That makes me nervous because I don’t know what Linda has planned for me. She has been “outing” me to some of our friends that I feel she might have more of that planned. And now most of our family has seen me looking like Beverly in some form, or have at least heard about it, so they wouldn’t be surprised if Bev makes an appearance at the party. I am sure it will be a party I will remember. But, who knows, maybe Linda will leave that alone this time… NOT!

And then there is the matter of the little black dress… While I was gone last night, Darryl called and talked to Linda, and I gather it was a long conversation. Now this is my friend who I introduced to Linda. Now he calls when I am not home so he can talk to her. Not sure I like that. Anyway, he is going to be in town next week and wants to get together. This will be the opportunity for Linda to wear her new dress (I am sure she bought it with this kind of thing in mind). They decided that this will be another opportune time for me to cook and serve as well, so I am thinking that I will be there as Beverly for their amusement.

I had better get back to my cleaning as the house will be hosting a lot of people over the next week. Stay tuned.
