Chapter 5.3 – White Wedding

Welcome back everyone! Reese and Adalind are busy sleeping. The news that a nooboo is on the way pretty much wiped them out. So we’re going to fast forward though this SUPER boring part

Noooooooo! Mom and dad died!!

Weird though that they died on the same night

Well they woke up and went to work. And then both of them came home with promotions!! Yay! Bonus money!

Winterfest came along and we decided to celebrate this time. Here they are decorating the tree! I usually just buy the pre-decorated ones but I wanted to try something new!

Waahhh! So pretty! Honestly, I never do anything with the trees. I just plop them down and ignore them. So I’ve never turned on the lights before. So I thought this was SO CUTE!!

And then I thought this would be an adorable way for Adalind to propose!

And he said yes!!

Gosh. They are sooo cute together!

And we eloped immediately.

Welcome to the family, Reese! (officially)

More Winterfest! Gotta have that good meal!

And Reese is looking at me like “I guess this isn’t so bad. Thanks”

Reese was in such a good mood that he painted our first masterpiece!

O_O This was Father Winter’s gift to Adalind… O_O What the hell.

And Adalind’s making sure that she keeps up with Reese and she paints her own masterpiece!

Baby time!!

Lawrd help us. Our doctor is a ghost…

And so is our receptionist!

My game is obviously celebrating halloween early… lol

Or at least it did for a little bit. Then a new receptionist poofed into being and we were on our way.

They also decided we should have a real doctor.

“Thank goodness. No ghost was getting near my hoohaa. Especially a distant relative.”

No one goes near your ‘hoohaa’ anyway. That’s not how birth works in the Sims

“In the what?”

Nevermind.

And we had twins! Both girls!

(Y’all need to send these girls over to my Baby Boom challenge… I’m lacking girls over there…)

Anyway! Meet the girls! Reese is holding our heir, Chloe! While Adalind is holding our first spare, Emma!

Chapter 5.2 – Breakin’ The Ice

Welcome back! We begin this chapter off with somber news. Mom and Dad are old. And DAMN! Malik looks gooooooood as an elder!

Anyway, Adalind is still hard at work painting. WE WILL COMPLETE THIS HOUSE THE FIRST TIME IF IT KILLS ME!

And with all the painting, we were able to afford a bed!

A single bed.

But it beats sleeping in a bush. Even though they have to share

Oh and we splurged for a TV. Don’t judge my penguin. Or our lack of seating…

… You were literally RIGHT there. What the hell.

This gnome scared the SHIT outta me! I saw him out of the corner of my eye and I thought there was a damn spider on my screen (it was zoomed out).

But anyway, happy Harvestfest!

Guys. With this painting, we bought…

A bench? That was anticlimatic wasn’t it? Whoops

Also, Adalind managed to get a promotion on holiday!

Also also, YOU SEE THEY’RE FLIRTY!?!? Apparently, only gloomy romantic actions work! But whatever works!

We’re actually doing romantic actions!!!! I thought for SURE it would take longer than that!

This is the first time I’m glad they get sad from random relatives dying.

House update! You can kinda see where our layout is taking us. Also, see we have a double bed? Yeah, but they still won’t sleep in it at the same time even though they are romantic. So we had to fix that!

*fixed*

Nothing a little woohoo can’t fix!

Reese got a promotion!

We were finally able to afford a second easel! Now they can paint at the same time!

Double the fun!

Adalind got another promotion!

*squee* It’s so cute!! I wish I could keep it! But I need the money more at this point.

What a goof. But he’s cute and adorable, so I don’t care

Yes, we’re doing exactly what you think we’re doing.

But we were unsuccessful!

You know what this means?

ROUND TWO!

*DING*

2nd time was the charm!

“Babe! We’re having a baby!”

“Whaaaaa?! I’m just like my mother…”

“Say what now?”

And that wraps up this update! Here’s a look at how the house stands at this moment. We’re at a $18,947 valuation at this moment. $100K is a looooooong way away…

Chapter 5.1 – Adalind’s Journey Begins

Welcome to House 5!! I didn’t think I was gonna get through House 4 for a while there, but be managed to pull it off! Let’s take a quick look at the house goals for house 5:

  1. Create a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home worth at least $100,000 Simoleons. (Yikes, this already makes me nervous…)
  2. Achieve level 10 of the Painting Career: Patron of the Arts branch
  3. Achieve level 10 of the Painting Career: Master of the Real branch
  4. Achieve level 5 photography skill
  5. Complete the photography treasure hunt
  6. Produce and Raise an Heir to the YA stage

The house scares me. As well as the treasure hunt… I know how EA likes to dress their sims…

Anyway! Here we go!

Adalind takes over in the middle of the night in the middle of summer. Her stats are also surprisingly all in the green with hunger being the lowest

And she’s not alone!

Meet Reese Fairchild! We get a second playable sim in this house (I’ll forget this at some point…) and I wanted to use someone from another game of mine, so Reese was selected! He’s from my 100 baby challenge and I can’t wait to see their babies!

Reese: Babies?

Too soon! Nevermind!

While we waited for collectables to appear we got to know each other first.

And then a few hours later Adalind was sent off in search of goodies.

While Reese is set to work fishing.

Spoiler: He doesn’t get anything

I love that you can still see the dead cowplants at the old house 3 lololololol

RIP Mr Jingles and Mrs. Pickles

You were too good for this world

With no house or bed or really anything… Adalind finds a bench to crash on

We had our first ever welcome party! This is what happens when you move to a lot that actually has a neighbor! So Uncle Devin and Aunt Rebecca along with Calvin came to welcome us.

They didn’t stay long

We had a heat wave and I was afraid of them combusting, so we did things different from the past: We built a shelter first.

And yes. That is Reese passed out in the “used” bush

Finally got them in the painter career! Adalind started out at level 3 because of her grades while Reese jumped to level… 8 I think. I have no idea why he’s so far along. I had reset his skills and everything before I began so… yeah. Anyway we cheated him back to level 1 so he can start at the bottom like he’s supposed to

At this point in the Challenge, Adalind is missing her shower.

And if you look closely, you can see mom in the back ground! *waves* Hi mom!

Hailey: I’m not here

And one paycheck later, we were able to get Adalind that shower she needed

And so the visits from the vampires start. We didn’t get very far…

We took a quick break from collecting to play in the leaves! That’s right Fall is officially here!

They really need a bed. (Or beds. They are refusing to get romantic… This poses a real problem…)

Case and Point… They’re both playing with their phones because they needed an escape from the horribly awkward romantic interaction they just had.

This is going to be a problem.

I guess I’ll have to get one of them the beguiling trait to move things along…

Bills. And as you can see, we cannot afford them… Time for a collection run.

And this helped too! Thank you Reese!

After bills, we had enough to buy our first Easel! It’ll get us through until they bring home the reward easel after the appropriate promotions.

And that’s it for the first chapter of house 5! The house value is currently just under 10K so we have a ways to go yet…


Extra Bits:

Skye Tanaka. Kayla and Calvin’s oldest. She’s really pretty! I might save her and use her for my OWBC when I get to it!

And here’s her younger sister, Ashlynn!

Here’s Rebecca and Dereck’s daughter, Renee

And Devin and Kylee’s son, Ray

And our very own little Laurel who, of course is Malik’s alien baby.

 

Chapter 4.11 – It’s About Time

Welcome back! This is the last chapter of house 4! Adalind still has 5 days left until her birthday, so we are going to three speed this shit!

Here we go!

Oh yeah, if you remember, last chapter Malik welcomed baby Laurel to the family!

Purple alien babies for the win!

With Hailey’s goals finished, I leave her on freewill most of the time and just watch the fam. And these two are super cutsie all the time!

We picked a good one!

This is the look of an internet troll . You know that’s not very nice, Adalind.

Adalind: But I’m right and they’re wrong!

No. Just stop.

Vasyl’s really good at taking care of Laurel. If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought she was his! He gives her so much attention!

Everyone was “Burning to death” inside the house during the heat wave, so we had to splurge and turn on the air conditioner.

Boo. Money.

Uh oh. Malik’s non-committal is showing. Weirdly though, it wasn’t because he was married. It was because of his job. I didn’t even know that was a thing! I thought it was strictly for marriages! So that was my fun fact of the day!

Aiden and Lucas came to visit!

Aiden is ROCKIN’ those shorts

And they even stayed for family dinner!

Wait… How is it they’ve been married this long and he’s just now learning her traits?

This requires further investigation.

Investigation Results: Apparently they don’t know anything about each other. I dunno how that happened. I wonder if they got reset or something? Because I find this hard to believe.

Laurel aged up and ohmygoodnesssheissocuteimgonnadie

Prepare for toddler spam

Daddy/Daughter playtime!

*squee*

*sigh* I love wild toddlers. Wild toddlers are the BEST!

So apparently, Vasyl DOES have a real alien form. Which is weird because he didn’t in CAS, so I didn’t think he had one, but I just randomly clicked on him and decided to try it out. So he will now be walking about like this.

Say hello to the REAL Vasyl!

She’s got the artistic flair. But she’s so cute I can’t even be mad

Everyone dotes on Laurel. She literally is always in some sort of interaction with one of the family members. And their favorite thing to do is play with her. So she always ends up flying on someones back. But it’s cute so I don’t mind at all!

See? All the love.

Adalind is just waiting for her turn to go again lol

Uhhhhhhhhhhh, Hailey? This is worse than Adalind!

Caught her dunkin’! Adalind is such a baller!  (ha)

IT’S FINALLY ADALIND’S BIRTHDAY!

It’s about time! I’ve been waiting for this moment for DAYZ!

And we’re off to start house 5! ……in the rain……
