Bless the Broken Road

Round 8 - February 2042
Tippy Dean, Casey Addler, and Mindi Mason are 27 (Marcus Burns is 27)

Every long lost dream, lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way, into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God bless the broken road, that lead me straight to you

Living with Tippy Dean experience. Casey decided long ago that his life with Tippy would never be boring. It was part of the reason he wanted to marry her. She was an amazing woman, albeit a bit scary at times! He turned the wedding planning totally over to her and she turned all business dealings over to him. They had to decided to open their own gym, Tippin' the Scales, where he would be a personal trainer and she would be a yoga instructor. It was an expensive venture, but Casey was confident that they could make it successful........

She's So High

Round 8 - January 2042
Last update/ Next update
Joe Carr is 46, Kayden is 12, Javion is 10, Layla and Lauren are 3 (Gallagher Newson is 12, Kali Knowles, and Carl Faulkner are 14)

What can a guy like me, ever really offer?
She's perfect as she can be, why should I even bother?
Cuz she's so high, high above me, she's so lovely
She's so high, like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite 
She's so high, high above me
Tal Bachman

Ariel had been working very long hours at the recording studio, which left Joe taking care of the twins most of the time. Kevin Knowles had picked up a lot of the slack at the hospital, but Joe was getting a bit tired of potty training and feedings. He needed a break!

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 8 - January 2042

Being the horrible simgod that I am, I totally forgot to do Miranda Picaso's age up! So here she is.......quite evil looking, isn't she? And guess what? She has freaking elf ears! No idea what that's about! As you can see, I covered them. There is just no way for me to fit that into my whole elf situation I have going on, and I'm not even going to try! I'm hoping she......I don't know, softens as she gets older. She looks like she's going to get into a lot of mischief, doesn't she?

And here is little Miss Joss Willis. She is a very playful and outgoing little one-year-old girl. Meadow is a bit upset that she looks more like her daddy right now!

* I seriously don't understand how Miranda has elf idea. She is extremely outgoing, playful, sloppy and mean (only 1 neat and nice point!) so I'm sure she'll be quite the character.

* Joss is also extremely outgoing and playful (10 points each) but she also isn't very nice ( 3 nice points). I can see her being the spoiled daughter of a rockstar who just wants to have fun all the time lol. Should be tons of fun for both Meadow and Slade :)

We're all right where we should be
With my arms out wide, I open my eyes
And now all I want to see, is a sky full of lighters

Business was really booming for Kinsley, which was great as Christmas was the next day and she and Kevin still had a few presents to get for the kids!

New Poll

So I've gotten up to Tippy and Mindi's update in game and I've been thinking.....That whole uni group is now playable other than Mindi since both Slade and Tippy made the cut. I don't know, I feel kinda bad, leaving her out. Because once she and Tippy aren't roommates anymore, she gets tossed to the land of NPCs. And since Tippy is going to marry Casey this round, I'm not sure how long it would be realistic for Mindi to live with a married couple. So I'll leave it up to you guys. I'll be posting a poll to decide her fate. I know I haven't really delved too much into Mindi's character, but I think she has the potential to be an interesting addition to LB. Then again, with all these new babies, maybe I don't need to add any more new people......but my hood is fairly new and still see my dilemma? So please, have mercy on me and help me decide!!!! :)

Gavin Newson is 25, Gretchen is 33, Gallagher is 11, Gabriella is 9, Georgia and Garrett are 8, Ginger is 20, Matthew Picaso is 40, Jessica is 39, Hunter is 5

Well an airplane's faster than a Cadillac, 
and a whole lot smoother than a camel's back,
But I don't care how you get to me, just get to me
Parasail or first class mail,
Get on the back of a nightingale
Just get to me, just get to me

It was finally time to head home. Gavin wasn't sure this day would ever come. Since Payton's birth, the days seemed to creep by on his calendar. But soon he would be able to hold his baby girl in his arms..........

Absolutely (Story of a Girl)

Round 8 - November 2041
Christian and Alana Brown are 45, Christa is 16, Aidan and Hayden are 8 (Bobby Emerson is 16)

 This is the story of a girl, the pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there, I absolutely love her
This is the story of a girl, who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs, I absolutely love her
When she smiles
Nine Days

"So we get to meet your boyfriend today, huh?" Aidan asked his sister.
"Shut up squirt. You guys better not embarrass me............."

Gallagher had decided to really take what Mr. Nott said into consideration. He did like tinkering around with things and a good way to explore that was in shop class. It was really fun and he was actually very good at it........

Lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you 

Gordon was still in awe of the relationship between DeJuan and Donna. He would never have put the two of them together, but somehow they worked. He really thought Charday's reappearance would cause problems for them, but it didn't. It seemed that they were just truly happy together. He wondered if he and Taesha would still be that in love when they were could only hope........

It was a chilly fall morning when pains began ripping through Gretchen Newson's mid-section. She still couldn't believe that Gavin would miss the birth of their first child. She really needed him by her side.......

Dog Days Are Over - Part II

Round 8 - August 2041 - LBU
Caleb Henderson, Ricky Cormier, and Kimberly Jackson are 21

Happiness, hit her, like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck still, no turning back 
She hid around corners, and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses, and from it she fled
With every bubble, she sank with a drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink
The dog days are over, the dog days are done
The horses are coming, so you better run
Florence + The Machine
They were seniors. Caleb still couldn't believe that their college careers were almost over. It seemed like only yesterday that they all started. Now Meadow was a mom, he and Ginger were an item, and Ricky had succeeded in totally screwing up his romantic life........

Dog Days Are Over - Part I

Round 8 - August 2041 - BTU
Meadow Thayer and Ginger Newson are 21, Joss Willis is 8 months ( Caleb Henderson is 21 )

Happiness, hit her, like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck still, no turning back 
She hid around corners, and she hid under beds

His name was Armand Wrightwood, and he was amazing. He was a rich and successful businessman who had recently moved to LaQuest Beach. He was originally from Lyon, France and had the most adorable accent. And he seemed to really like her. And she was happy........well, for the most part. It seemed that Slade had left her a bit distrustful of what men said they wanted. And that would just never do! It wouldn't be fair of her not to give Armand a fair chance........

Round 8 - July 2041

Not an average post!!!!

He called Celeste over as soon as the pains began. He knew that child birth was painful, he wasn't an idiot or insensitive to what women went through. But he truly had no idea it felt like this. And all because some damn aliens used him as an oven for their damn kid. He thought he was going to die..........

Marshal White is 45, Shamella is 42, Evan & Ethan are 5 (Vanya de Muse is 5)

Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just want to lay in my bed
Don't feel like picking up the phone, leave a message at the tone
Cuz today I swear I'm not doing anything, nothing at all
Bruno Mars

Shamella was happy to see that her sons seemed to be making friends at school. The summer had been filled with play dates from numerous children. Evan really seemed to be close with Hunter Picaso. The little boy came over fairly regularly, but never stayed very long as he wanted to go home and make sure his mom and sister were ok. He seemed to take his responsibility as the "man of the house" very seriously and Shamella thought it was very sweet.......

Here without you

Round 8 - May 2041
Last update/ Next update
Matthew Picaso is 40, Gavin Newson is 25

I'm here without you baby, but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby, and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby, but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl, it's only you and me
Three Doors Down

He was bored. And while for other men this might be insignificant, for Matthew Picaso it was a new feeling. He wasn't a monster or uncaring, but he usually enjoyed his trips for the military. He got away from his regular life and was able to breathe. But this time was different. This time he found himself actually missing home, missing Jessica and Hunter and Miranda. This time, he looked forward to being reunited with his family. And he didn't know how he felt about it.............

And it's hard at the end of the day

He would be starting school soon. Kimber couldn't believe that her little boy would soon be leaving every morning, just as Kip did. Sure, she had her books to write, but it would be quite lonely without her boys there.......

This is not story related, something I'm trying to get away from on this blog, but not everyone follows my behind the scenes blog.......I'm still around and waaaaay behind on my blog reading :(. I also have not had the time to play to create a new update which I hate because I'm so excited about the new alien baby, who I haven't even seen yet myself!!! The beginning of the semester is always rough and this is my second to last semester of classes before 750 hours of internship so my classes are a bit more time consuming, i.e. consultations with counselors, program planning, honor society meetings; it's all really one big headache! But I see a light at the end of the tunnel and I should be able to get some play time in and have a new post by the end of the week. It's strange to go from posting almost every other day, to barely having time to read everyone else's great blogs! But that's part of being an adult right? I mean, I can't disregard all these things and shut the world out and play the sims for a few days.......can I? Nah, probably not a good idea :). Anyway, I'm still here and so is LaQuest Beach and hopefully we can return to our regularly scheduled program soon :)

And you're so far down,
But you will survive it somehow,

Caleb was glad that things were going well for he and Ginger. With all the craziness that was surrounding their friends, it was nice to be stable. Meadow and Ricky served as cautionary tales of what not to do!

Round 8 - April 2041

Gretchen still had trouble believing she was pregnant. What were the odds?! They definitely had not been trying. Oh, she had wanted her own kids, but she thought it would have been smarter for them to wait a bit. They already had 4 kids running around the house.......but sometimes life didn't want to wait on your plans........

Leave out all the rest, leave out all the rest
Linkin Park

It took him a while to get here, to grow up. But now he was a husband and a father and it was time to make some grown man decisions where his family was concerned. Which meant that his days of money laundering were coming to a close. He had made his money, bought a nice home, and was ready to settle down in the life of the new Derick Pace: Husband, father, and club owner.

Mellow Metal Album Cover

I suppose this would be better suited for the babble blog, but since I mentioned their upcoming album in their update, here you go :).

I see their song "Bittersweet" being about their road to being famous and all the ups and downs of it. So a picture of them waiting for their  bus was fitting :)

Taesha was so excited that they had gotten another teacher for the school. Her class load was huge and she couldn't wait until it became a bit smaller. She knew that it was selfish, but her daughter Lyria would be starting school next year and she wanted to be able to spend time with her. The way it stood currently, she could barely keep the kids from destroying the classroom!

Oh, I've been traveling on this road too long
Just trying to find my way back home

Clarence Phillippine was a very complex man. At least that's what his wife Lily said. He knew that she didn't understand how he could go from a gearhead, motorcycle lover to farmer John in one fell swoop. He really couldn't explain it himself. But he had always had dreams of owning a farm. It was a dream he kept to himself, as this want didn't mesh very well with his persona. But the dream was still there, tucked away in a corner of his soul, awaiting the day when he would get the courage to try to make that dream a reality. And that day was today.........

Round 8 - February 2041

Just one birthday this time, but he's such a cutie :)

How adorable is Liam Coners?! He's celebrating his first birthday. I think he's going to be a little mini version of his dad :). He's going to be a super sweet kid who is very outgoing and active. Kayla can't believe her little man is already one year old! And how cute is his little mohawk? Just like daddy's :)

* I aged Liam up just to see what he would look like and he's really going to take after Kenny and Terrence. So just thought I would give you a heartbreaker alert lol

* I know I said I would address Gretchen and her pregnancy in this bday post but this has been a busy week and I've actually not gotten a chance to go in the game in a few days. But I have another birthday post in April 2041 so we'll see her there.

* I've also added a non playable family. The Phillippine twins have been in my elementary school posts and they are the same age as the Brown twins. I added their family to Camden Park because I really wanted to have a farming family. I can't see any of my current residents waking up and wanting to run a farm lol. So we'll meet them in the next post. The father is Clarence and he'll run the farm and the mother is Lily and she'll actually be teaching at the elementary school. I have a lot in mind for a store for him to sell his produce, but he'll need to work on his badge a bit before I'll let him take out a loan and buy it.

I just want to be here with you, right here with you, just like this
I just want to hold you close, feel your heart so close to mine
And stay here in this moment, for all the rest of time

It was time for him to leave. They had shared a very sad Christmas together in which all anyone wanted to do was talk about how much they were going to miss him. The few weeks after his marriage to Gretchen flew by, and now here they were..........preparing to say good-bye.

Warning: Not your average b'day post :)

She had been in pain for over an hour. She knew what that meant, knew that she needed to get to the hospital. But if she went, once she walked through those doors and that baby was delivered, she would be someone's mother. And she just simply was not ready for that. Not at all...................

"I can't believe your brother is getting to move to another place!" Ricki said.
"Yea......we're gonna miss him. But Gretchen is suppose to stay here and take care of us," Georgia said.
"Is she nice?"

The kids were driving Kip crazy. Maybe it was because they were close to the Thanksgiving break. Maybe it was because they were hormonal thirteen year olds. Maybe it was because it was a stormy day. Whatever the reason, Kip wanted to lock them all in a sound proof room until the end of the day.
"Carl! Sit down and stop messing with Samara! Don't make me have to say it again," Kip said.

And all I really want, is some comfort
A way to get my hands untied
And all I really want, is some justice
Oh ah, oh ah, oh ah ah
Alanis Morrisette

Starema was really worried about Celeste. The newest abduction seemed to really be taking a toll on her daughter. She just didn't get why she wanted to stress herself out over this. No human would take the news that they had been pollinated well. And the males were even more opposed to it than the females as they saw it detracting from their "masculinity". It was all such silliness. She would think they would be honored to be chosen. It's not like it's something that happens every day!

I don't know what stressed me out first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like 
To have a voice in the back of my head
Linkin Park

Tabitha was having trouble finishing her latest novel. After the great success of Whispers in the Wind, she was nervous that Body Heat wouldn't live up to it. It was this fear that caused her to be very overcritical of every nuance of dialogue. It was driving her crazy. That, and the fact that she had been unable to convince Terrence to adopt a child........

"You ready for one of those?" Kenny asked.
"Hell no. Why does everyone keep asking me that?"
"Because the kid is coming whether you're ready or not Slade. And if you're the dad, you know we're going to ride your ass about it until you do the right thing," Kenny said.
"IF the kid is mine. I'm still not convinced."

Won't you wait for me?

Hunter wasn't doing so well in school. He didn't get what he was doing wrong. Maybe he should start asking his parents for help.......maybe he could even ask his dad. His dad was different now. He seemed.......happier. And that made Hunter happy. He guessed that the new baby was the reason. He didn't care what the reason was, he just knew that his dad was happy now and he was going to get to be a big brother!

Caught Myself - Part II

Round 8 - August 2040 - LBU

Don't know what I want
But I know it's not you
Keep pushing and pulling me down
When I know in my heart it's not you

Even though she knew they would have to struggle to pay off the loan they had to take out to get this place, Ginger had to admit that it had a nice view. It was one of the newer apartments in downtown LaQuest Beach and was actually a great complex. She was out of her mind, agreeing to help Meadow out with her problem. She was sure that she was now a shoe in for sainthood once she died........

If someone had told her that her college career would come to an end with her leaving pregnant, she would have laughed in their faces. Not Meadow Thayer. In a way she was glad to be leaving. She was showing now, and she was tired of the stares she got from other students. Maybe it was all in her head, maybe not. But either way she wasn't sad to be leaving. Things with Slade had improved......well as much as they were probably going to......she had had a conversation with him about helping her move to the new apartment with Ginger and she had only called him a bastard once......a definite improvement.......

No one had told her that it would hurt. Oh sure, her mother said it was "unpleasant", but this went a tad bit beyond unpleasant. Unbearable was more like it!
"My gosh, let's just calm down ok? We've got to calm down. This kid is ready to make their grand entrance," Totia said.
"Oh bite me! Why couldn't you just zap the kid out of me like you do for the males that give birth? That's the most sexist damn thing I've ever heard!" Celeste yelled.

Births: Jordyn Pace, Liam Coners, Adam Ellison

Weddings: Kenny Coners & Kayla Knowles; Derick Pace & Charity Jones

Expectant Mothers: Celeste Oros, Jessica Picaso, Meadow Thayer

Round 7 was filled with lots of drama, laughs, and love! Mellow Metal had their first tour, Kenny got married and had his first son! Derick Pace is attempting to turn over a new leaf for the sake of his daughter and wife. Celeste is finally going to be a mother and Slade was hit with the bomb that he is going to become a father. Round 8 is sure to be just as drama filled, if not more so! Here are the ROS for round 8:

* Oh no! Scotty beamed you up! Get abducted by aliens (I SO hate who rolled this :/. It's going to be hard as hell to work this in naturally lol. I think you'll be pretty surprised! I know I was!)

* Ugh, this 9 to 5 blows! Quit your job and start a new venture.

* Expand your family by adoption (Again, very fitting for this couple. I was actually going to let them adopt Meadow's baby, but it isn't very realistic)

I've been dying to roll the abduction one and isn't it just poetic that it's on the last person I would have ever picked! It'll be very interesting to work this out, in the end I'm sure it'll be good......I hope :). I'll be creating a page for all my non-playables like Mindi and the Phillippines who have twins that go to LBE. The census page has been updated to reflect the current stats.......quite a few sims in the hood now! Please be sure to check on my babble blog here for biographies on the founding sims and newly added playables.

I've also decided to make Meadow playable. I don't see her and Slade getting together, and I actually like playing with her. Plus, she'll be having the child of a playable character so I think it's only fair. I'm on the fence about whether Ricky will or not.......

Round 7 - July 2040
Last update/ Next update
Derick Pace is 47, Charity is 32, Jordyn is 1

And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven, that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight
Goo Goo Dolls

She should ask him. His club was doing well, but not well enough for him to be able to afford this beautiful town home. She should demand that he tell her what it is he does when he leaves the house for hours on end. And she should demand that he stop it, before he found himself locked up. She should, but she wasn't going to. She loved their life together and knew that he would never endanger Jordyn or her. And it really was a beautiful home.......

Time After Time

Round 7 - June 2040
Joe Carr is 44, Ariel is 38, Kayden is 10, Javion is 8, Layla and Lauren are 1 

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time

Sometimes he still couldn't believe that they had been married for almost a decade. Ariel was still the most complicated woman he had ever met. While she definitely was the biggest diva he had ever known, she was also a really great mother and a beautiful wife. He didn't know how fate decided to put them together, but he was definitely glad it had........

Round 7 - June 2040 - Mini-Update
Last Update/ Meadow's next update/ Slade's next update
Meadow Thayer is 19, Slade Willis is 25 (Brian Johnson is 25)

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just praying to a god that I don't believe in
Cause I've got time while she's got freedom
Cause when a heart breaks, no it don't break even

"Meadow, I thought I made myself pretty clear about this. Me and you are done. You want more than I can or am even willing to give. I don't get what's so hard to understand about that," Slade said.
"I'm not here to beg you to see me again. Are you really that shallow and conceited?" she asked.
"Then why the hell did you call me saying you just had to see me?"

Upgrade U

Round 7 - May 2040
Last update/ Next update
Marshal White is 44, Shamella is 41, Evan and Ethan are 4 (Joe Carr is 44, Ariel is 38, Kayden is 10, Javion is 8, Layla and Lauren are 1)

I can do for you what Martin did for the people
Ran by the men but the women keep the tempo
It's very seldom that you're blessed to find your equal
Still play my part and let you take the lead role, believe me
Let me upgrade you


Marshal had left the choice of which house to buy in Talum Heights up to his wife and sister. He had given them the price range and set them loose, a very dangerous thing to do when Ariel was involved........ And though he hated to admit it, they did a pretty wonderful job........

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 7 - April 2040

Jessica Picaso loved being pregnant. She knew other women complained about the discomfort, but she absolutely love it. She really hoped they had a girl this time in case Matt didn't want to have any more kids. She still didn't know what to make of all his attentiveness as of late. It was a bit strange to say she felt weird that her husband was doting on her, but that was how she felt.........weird.........

Brick by Boring Brick - Part II

Round 7 - April 2040 - BTU
Ginger Newson is 19 (Caleb Henderson and Meadow Thayer are 19)

Well, she lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she's left behind
Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds
Well, go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle

"I don't understand......I've been here almost 2 years now and you've never came over......why would you want to talk to me?............No, I mean I guess it's okay.......yea, sure come on over," Ginger said. Meadow Thayer wanted to come and hang out with her.......Either hell had frozen over, or there was something terribly wrong.......

New Ramble Blog

This is the last non sim related post for this blog. I've created a ramble blog to put all of the behind the scenes stuff so that the entries here flow better. I'm going through today and deleting any post of me just talking about randomness or game related posts. I'll transfer any important ones over there so I don't lose them completely, but the rest are just getting trashed. I'm linking to the blog on the sidebar and I've already made my first post over there, which can be found here. It's a history of what happened with Vasadori and is a few of my plans for Arwen. I'll leave this post up for a week or so and then it's coming down too! So please follow my babble blog for all behind the scenes stuff!

Brick By Boring Brick - Part I

Round 7 - April 2040 - LBU
Caleb Henderson, Ricky Cormier, Meadow Thayer, and Kimberly Jackson are 19 (Slade Willis is 25)

Well, she lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she's left behind
Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds
Well, go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle

Caleb Henderson was pissed. His springbreak plans had been ruined by Meadow and Ricky. He and Ginger were suppose to go away with Ricky and Kimberly for springbreak. After Meadow dropped the bomb about sleeping with Ricky, Kimberly broke things off with him. Sure, he and Ginger could have gone by themselves, but he wasn't ready for a trip like that with just the two of them.........damn Meadow and her meddling!

Scandalous Scholastics

Round 7 - March 2040- LBPS
Principal: Kip Henderson; Grade 7: Imani Coners, Imara Coners, Kali Knowles, Carl Faulkner, Hunter Davidson, Samara Eldridge; Grade 9: Christa Brown, Bobby Emerson, Beverly Kendall; Grade 12: Raphael Jones, Jean Mahesh

Kip couldn't wait for Kayla to come back from maternity leave. They had gotten an influx of transfer students and he could really use her help. He wasn't sure he could handle the entire group of hormonal teens who were counting down the days until springbreak...........

Round 7 - February 2040
Last update/Next update
Kip and Kimber Henderson are 47, Kyle is 2 (Caleb Henderson and Ginger Newson are 19, Christian and Alana Brown are 43)
And from the ballroom floor, we are in celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we will all sleep well
Sleep well, sleep well, sleep well, sleep well
You have stolen my heart
Dashboard Confessional

He was growing up too fast. It only seemed like yesterday that she was carrying him in her womb. Now two years had already gone by and she just didn't know where the time had gone. She remembered saying that she would be glad when her pregnancy was over, but now she wanted it again. But she knew that baring children was no longer a part of her life........

Happy Birthday to Ya!

Round 7 - February 2040

Lorelai was SO ready to give birth to this kid! She had forgotten how uncomfortable the last months were, it sucked! Jacob was oblivious to her discomfort, he was too excited about being able to enjoy this pregnancy without worrying about whether the elder elves would come in and snatch up his son.........
