Sticky Post

Greetings and Welcome to my Livejournal! This is where I'll dump stories and perhaps some of the random content I create for The Sims 2.

Sims in this journal are pixel_trade friendly. But use the tag lizbeth120 since that's the journal I had before I moved sims stuff here...

[Silvervale: A Sims 2 Prosperity Challenge] Teer 2 (R12)

Last Round, Wesley and Jeannie took surprisingly good care of their two little girls. Wesley was still pretty self-absorbed though and still haven't realized that Phoebe doesn't really look too much like the Teer side of the family, nor does she much resemble her mother. During her maternity leave, Jeannie took up writing, and gardening. After a too-high dose of pesticide exposure, she turned into a plant sim. Over the course of the round, both Wendy and Phoebe transitioned into lovely young ladies. Will Jeannie and Wes curb their cheating ways now that the girls are old enough to know what's going on? Lets see...

Monday-Saturday

<lj-cut text="Round 12">

Out of Wesley's two daughters, he tended to see himself more in the eldest, Wendy.  She always seemed to be intersted in his latest film endeavors... and of course he was happy to endulge her questions


There was just something a little... odd... about Phoebe.  Wes couldn't put his finger on it, but she wasn't quite like the rest of the household


Wes and Jeannie really enjoyed having people over to the house.  Since they were both advancing in their careers, they could spend more time with friends and relatives.


Jeannie didn't really even mind it too much when Wesley's girlfriends were hanging around the house.


Rose and Linda were actually pretty cool to be around most of the time



Wendy and Phoebe also really enjoyed hanging out with their cousins.  All the kids got along so well


While the cousins were keeping the girls busy, Wes and Jeannie tried to sneak a little alone time in the hot tub


What they didn't realize was that Wes's girlfriends were still hanging out around the house.  ((Silly ACR))


Linda had finally had enough of Wesley's two (three?) timing ways.  She didn't understand why he had chosen Jeannie over both she and Rose, but she was pretty sick of it.


Things escalated pretty quickly, Jeannie was not pleased with getting attacked in her own home by some hussy



Despite all the drama, Wes and Jeannie's guests for the evening must have still had a good time


Jeannie decided enough was enough as far as woohoo was concerned and just decided she would bud instead  ((Wes thought it was hot))



Meet plant-baby, Clover.  He's super cute :)


Scoring: 0 points

Household Net-Worth: /shrug

((That's it for this house, I guess it was pretty boring because all I have are shots of the drama.  These are from Feb 2012 as well, so I really don't remember.  A couple out-takes for you:

Apparently plant-babies can get their "water" need from playing in the toilet


I have to remember to cure all the Teer household members next time I get to their house, and stop inviting them over to visit my other households because they are plague carriers


I've actually played the Wade household, next on the rotation.  I've been having some trouble loading my larger households since I transferred the hood to the new computer... I think it has something to do with the amount of sims and CC in the more established households.  It's probably good because I need to weed out my monster CC folder anyway.  More updates on the horizon, thanks for reading!)) </lj-cut>

[Silvervale: A Sims 2 Prosperity Challenge] Eich 2 (R12)

Aaaaand we're back!

Last round, Kana gave birth to her alien spawn whom they named Ziggy who grew up into an adorable toddler.  Mistress of the Night, a.k.a. Auntie Tia turned out to be a great nocturnal babysitter for both Zora and Ziggy despite thinking she'd spend eternity doing interesting things.  At the end of the round, Angelica discovered that she was pregnant.  ((I played this house in February 2012 according to the dates on the
screenshots... it's been two and a half years, I'm not sure I remember
what exactly went on so I'm going to wing it, lol!)

[Silvervale: A Sims 2 Prosperity Challenge] a Silvervale renaissance?

Well hello! I'm not sure anyone is still watching this blog but I wanted to say -- thanks to Origin, I can play TS2 again :)

Back in, oh... February 2012 (that's when my last TS2 screenshot is dated) my older Windows Vista computer began having issues. When I got a new computer it had Windows 8 and I honestly didn't want to jump through the hoops of getting TS2 to work on it. Sims in general kinda fell off my radar...

Last month, Origin was having the SIMS 2 ultimate collection for free to anyone with a Sims game registered. And, best of all it works with Windows 8!!!!

So anyway, Silvervale might be making a comeback because I really miss my sim-babies. I have the 'hood installed and working in my new game, and just finished reading through my own blog from the beginning to reacquaint myself. I have screencaps from two houses on my backup drive that I played 2 and a half years ago and haven't blogged yet, lol!

A lot of other things have changed (we just moved in to our new home) so things around here are super busy. But I can't wait to start playing again :). I might even blog those two found households if I can remember what happened.

Too busy for Sims!

Hi Guys, I'm not dead... just super busy!  Things have been very busy around here the last 3 months, I've barely touched my computer at all. Just a summary of things I've been up to instead of simming and blogging:

The Garden: May 27, 2012
I started taking classes, and graduated from the Washington County Master Gardener Program. Classes were every Tuesday and Thursday evening starting the beginning of March, and ending May 24. It was a lot of work, but now I'm an official Master Gardener! Woohoo :)

I decided I needed to learn how to sew, so I bought a used sewing machine and have been practicing... too bad I can't wear the flannel PJ pants that I made now that it's too hot out.

I took off a week in May to do gardening things, and do a little cleaning around the house. That week Ryan and I went PYO strawberry picking and I made a dozen jars of strawberry preserves to kick of the canning season.

The garden is growing beautifully. We have been enjoying fresh lettuce and spinach for the past two months, and I've been harvesting (and eating!) broccoli and snow peas this past week. Yum! The tomatoes and peppers are planted and a few of the tomato plants have flowers already :) I still have to plant my beans, eggplant, and squash/cucumbers... that's on the agenda for tomorrow and Saturday!

This past weekend, we took a long weekend trip down to the Shenandoah Valley in VA. We visited the Naked Mountain winery and Copper Fox distillery both near Front Royal. Drove on the Skyline Drive and hiked in Shenandoah Nat'l Park. And visited Luray and the Caverns. It was a very relaxing weekend.

One of these days, maybe I'll get back to my sim babies (maybe once things get too hot to spend time outside in the garden). Happy Summer everyone!

[Silvervale: A Sims 2 Prosperity Challenge] Devivio 4 (R12)

Last time we visited Kurt, Brittany and the kids, not much went on.  Kurt and Brittany aged into elders and the twins got admitted into the private school.  At the end of the round, Tabitha decided to for-go college and transition into adulthood along with her boyfriend Timothy.  Lets see what happens this round

[Silvervale: A Sims 2 Prosperity Challenge] Devivio 3 (R12)

Last time at the third Devivio house in the rotation, Gibson and Kay were super social. Gibson took advantage of having "cool" parents and often spent late nights out with his group of friends. He continued to date townie, Allyn. With the help of Alec Bigfoot, Carla continued to work at the flower shop and ended up getting it to Level 6. Alec also got promoted to TOC music, fulfilling his LTW in the process. All of the cats continued to work toward the top of their careers so that Connor could fulfill his LTW.

[Silvervale: A Sims 2 Prosperity Challenge] Devivio 2 (R12)

Apologies for not updating much lately... I got TS3 for Christmas and I've been playing it a lot :p I'm definitely not giving up TS2, but now I have to divide my time between them. Also, if you're interested, I have a Tumblr where I post random pics, it's much less commitment than blogging so I feel like I'm much more active there, feel free to follow if you'd like :) Now on to the update...

Last time we visited Flora and Annatto, they were raising their first son, Camron, and more puppies for Annatto's LTW. Flora discovered she was pregnant with another bundle of joy. Jack met Kimi Tanaka from Rosebud and fell head over heels for her, at the end of the round he moved out to be with Kimi. Camron transitioned into a very cute child, and Flora gave birth to another boy that they named Ferris (who turned out to be a personality clone of Camron). Lets see how they get on this round.
