Terrano- Round 5- House 9

Welcome back to the Terrano house where Stella and Dustin (Broke) live!

First wishes are,
For Stella- max nature hobby, woohoo, invite someone over, max Journalism career, talk to someone and learn how to make burgers.

Dustin- max nature hobby, reach top of Political career, meet someone new, make bff, tell inside joke and hustle pool.

While Dustin went off to work Stella invited Darren Dreamer over. Stella is a Knowledge sim with Pleasure for secondary and she's always wanting to play pinball! Her and Darren met through the Gaming career.

Dustin reached the top of his 4th career. So far he's been in Entertainment, Dance, Criminal and now Politics. All his LTW's are career related so far, and his next is to reach the top of the Music career.

Stella went into labour right there in the garden.

and it was giving birth on the grass that perhaps prompted the couple to name their little green (yay!) son, Blade. :D

Being the Knowledge sim she is Stella immediately went to learn how to be a better parent!

Determined not to just be known forever as the 'Career King', Dustin set to work on maxing nature hobby. Summer is hitting the plots hard with all the pests around.

He's also a great father to Blade.

Who thanks to good timing was only a baby for a day! How cute is he?! Stella wanted to teach him all his toddler skills, and so she did.

Dustin found the music career after a couple of days. I'm looking for Education for Stella as I think the bookcase would be really useful now Blade is here.

 Dustin got a bit carried away with the pesticide...

and became a Plant Sim! He didn't lose his goatee though, :)

It helped him to become one with Nature and he soon got his hobby plaque.

and soon after that he became a Rock God!

He had a plantbaby called Leaf. (Not intended- I pressed the wrong button, but hey ho).

Blade loves splashing in puddles!

almost as much as he enjoys 'huggles' with his half brother.

ooh, it's party time!

Blade is a child!

Dustin bought potion from the gardening club,

As he's now in the Culinary career and has lots of night shifts he doesn't see as much sun as he needs.

So welcome back to normality Dustin. Go get that next LTW!

Yay. That's 6 careers and 6 LTW's.

I forgot to mention that Stella got her TOC in Journalism some time ago. This is her second LTW. She's now in the Education career, ;)

Both Stella and Dustin had wishes to get Blade into private school,

and so they did. In record time!
I had Stella greet Vince in smart glasses using a 'high five' greeting, and it was this that gave her such a high Schmooze score. She only showed him 2 or 3 rooms and then he shook her hand.
She ate the Turkey that she had lovingly prepared earlier, herself!

Blade already has 8 skills in charisma and mechanical and after wanting to learn about Physiology quickly got 8 in body too!

Leaf of course grew straight into an adult and chose Popularity as an aspiration. He wants to be a Rock God.

and Dustin? Yeah, he's found his next career!


Great week at the Terrano's.

Stella- wishes to invite sim over, stay home, play pinball, juggle, talk about hobby, birdwatch, catch bugs, go hiking and blog about hobby.
These dailies are quite good and easy. Also she had the want to learn parenting, to teach Blade all his skill, and to teach Leaf a nursery rhyme. She throws an occasional wish for a party and she wanted Blade in private school.

Dustin- He maxed his nature hobby while Stella somehow still hasn't! It was fun him being a plantsim. I decided not to keep him that way though but glad he had Leaf.
Daily wishes to meet someone new, catch bugs, blog hobby, talk about hobby and make friends/best friends. He also wanted to reach the top of each job that he got. He got 3 this week, Politics, Music & Culinary. I'm actually looking for 'Showbiz' to come up but as it hasn't I'm going for his LTW's in the meantime.

Blade- Like most kids enjoys skilling- he became a child on Friday night and so has spent the weekend skilling. His one true hobby is fitness.

Leaf- Although he is a Plantsim and has the exact personality of Dustin, he shows no one true hobby yet- I figured it would be Nature, as Dustin's is, but no.

A great week at the Terrano's. Now who's up for some Cheeeese?! ;)

Burb- Round 5- House 8

Welcome back to the Burbs, where in residence are,

John (elder)- initial wishes to woohoo, invite someone over, talk and entertain.
Jennifer (elder)- Talk about hobby, entertain, have party and get Gold flower arranging badge.
Lucy- (adult)- Make best friends with Pao, hustle pool, get skill and invite someone over.

Lucy had 3 bolts with Carter Broke and so she finally invited him to move in! She's pregnant with Don Lothario's baby after a brief fling but knows Carter is the man for her.

Later that day Lucy gave birth to Don's son, Donny.

She hired a babysitter and the rest of the family went back to 'Club H' to try and get Lucy her much needed 'top of business'... she needs to have 5 successful businesses to reach her LTW. (Way hard this one- like 20 puppies and kittens it should be worth so many more points/bonuses!).

Anyway, the family stayed at the business for 3 days getting it from it's initial rank 5 up to 8.  Lucy is the only one not in plat so they had to come back before she dropped dead. :D

Carter had got to the top of his career not long after moving in and so perma plat status for him along with reaching...

new heights when he filled his Lifetime Aspiration Panel.

Jennifer finally got Gold in gardening, as well as her Arts & Crafts plaque for getting ' in the zone'.  I set her to making Snapdragons ready for Lucy's 3rd business. Apart from wanting to make flowers she also likes to have parties, talk about and blog her hobby. She's easy to keep happy, if a little dull.

John is a happy Grandpa. His wishes revolve mainly around his hobby (Games), such that he likes to talk and blog about it, play the pc, play pinball and he loves pulling pranks on people.

He also helped Donny with his birthday and enjoyed teaching him toddler skills.

Lucy and Carter got married. Carter took the Burb name. They had a rockin' party.

                            and got a wedding night surprise not long after!

Jennifer maxed out her benefit panel too.

 A couple of uneventful days later (once heavily pregnant, Lucy refused to go to her community lot)... little Bradley was born and named in (sort of) honour of John's dad, Brad.

When Bradley became a toddler and made best friends with Lucy she reached her 'impossible want' of 30 best friends.

Then she and the other adults headed back to 'Club H' to try and get level 10.

Things were looking good when the reporter gave her a good review and the Best of the Best Award!

Maybe it was John leading the smustle with Nathan and Mary Gavigan but it worked, Lucy got level 10 and her 2nd business is in the bag.

Someone threw a party and used the opportunity to grow Donny up.

Looks like Donny has his Dad's personality- total slob but really outgoing and playful!

So Lucy sold 'Club H' and bought a new community lot. It's called Lucy's Cup of the World.

It's an Internet Cafe! 
Lucy hired a Barista and her and Carter are running this one without Jennifer and John this time.
In one day's session Lucy had got to rank 3.

We finish the week with an anniversary party for John and Jennifer giving us a twirl.


John and Jennifer- both like hobby related wishes, John also liking to play pranks. He had a wish for a garden plot and fruit tree this week and so far has got a Silver badge in Gardening. He also seems to enjoy entertaining for tips.  Jennifer enjoyed teaching her grandkids to talk and likes to play chess as well as throwing parties.

Lucy- I think Club H took me so long to max to level 10 because I had so few visitors initially, then I figured I could just call people up and invite them over which worked a treat, it flew through the ranks after that.
Lucy liked to meet someone new each day, make friends/best friends/bffs. She also constantly wants to have a good reputation which once is maxed is pretty easy to regain if it drops off a bit, and it's a good hit of about 5K points.
 She never really shows any interest in the business as far as wishes go, except to employ everyone she knows! lol.

Carter- Carter too likes a good reputation, he likes to play ball, win a gaming competition (which in a way helped me 'choose' an Internet cafe for Lucy), meet someone new, juggle, play pinball. He currently wants to max the Gaming hobby.

Donny- enjoys anything Art and Crafty, at the moment he's painting.
Bradley- usual toddler wishes.
