#TS4 – Gaming It Up

It’s been a lot of gaming around our house lately. The Boyfriend has recently gotten a bunch of new games including Neverwinter, Mortal Kombat X and State of Decay for the Xbox One, so it means that all he wants to do is play the games.

I had awhile of working really hard on stuff and then finally got down to fixing The Sims 4. I had a pretty big glitch go on with not only my content packs but also the Origin downloader, so I spent a night uninstalling and re-installing everything (or repairing, in the case of the content packs) and once I finally got back on, I’ve been pretty hooked to it…

I haven’t played The Rayne Legacy at all recently, because I was determined to try out all the careers in the expansion pack. I don’t want to use the expansion for The Rayne Legacy, so I created new families for the careers. I tried the Doctor first, because it was the one I was looking forward to the most. I’ve experimented a little bit with the Scientist and currently, I’m working on the Detective and Retail Business Owner careers.

One thing that I’ve been doing a lot of lately, that I’ve only been doing since the expansion came out, is cheating for Simoleons.

When you want a retail business really badly and when you play like I do, where you don’t stick with anything for longer than two seconds, it’s just about the only way. And I don’t like the cheating. It’s not my usual style on The Sims 4 especially, but I only cheat until that retail business is bought and then I say no to the motherlode-ing (CTRL + Shift + C then “motherlode”).

Today, I plan on not playing. Or if I do play, I plan on either (a) focusing on building and screenshot-ing, because I’ve got tons half done on all that, or (b) playing on The Rayne Legacy, because I’ve been neglecting Evyn for far too long.

So, any Simmers reading this?

The Beginning of Spring 2015

So far, the Spring of 2015 is looking like it might just be one of the best Springs we’ve ever had. While the weather may not have been all that great coming into it, it’s started to warm up and we’ve had quite a few eventful days.

My sister and her family came and visited. It’s been about two years since they were last here, so everyone was beyond excited. Surprisingly, did not get a single picture of my sister the entire time she was here… but here are some of my favorite shots from the visit.

Then, Kaeidyn had been begging for an entire year for us to go to the Spring Fling at her school. She even saved up money for it for months to make sure that that wasn’t a barrier to going. And when a boy at school asked her to go because he wanted to ask her something at the dance, she was even more adamant that we must absolutely go.

The room was very dark, so for the most part, a lot of the pictures and videos she took ended up not being worth anything. I’ve also got to get on watching through all the videos, because there are a couple that desperately need to be added. But for now, here’s some of my favorite pictures from that night.

So now, which one out of all of these pictures were your favorite? Any in the albums that should’ve been on here? And stay tuned for those videos I mentioned earlier…

Tumblr Favorites: Jan. – Apr. 2015 Edition

It’s been quite awhile since I last did a Tumblr favorites post. I officially came back to my Tumblr blog in January and have been trying to get on there at least once a day – although there’s a lot of sexiness there and that can eat up a good portion of your day…

But I thought, four months is the perfect amount to share some of my favorites – especially being that I’ve got about 400 posts to pick from… So enjoy and don’t forget to follow me on Tumblr.

April 2015 (So Far…)

Of course, this is a very small selection and you can find all sorts of stuff on my Tumblr – although big heads up (and if you didn’t realize it yet… well…), everything is very NSFW. I mean, you will find some stuff that is incredibly tame, but for the most part, you’ll find a lot that isn’t.

So please feel free to check out more and follow me on Tumblr and then leave your comments to the questions below!

Leave your comments!

  • What was your favorite image of all my favorites and why?
  • Have you seen my Tumblr? Do you think there’s an image missing from my selection of favorites?

#TS4 – Big Changes are Coming for #TheRayneLegacy

It took me awhile to gear up to play more of The Sims 4, as I was impatiently awaiting the release of the Get to Work expansion pack (read more about that here…). The Boyfriend finally convinced me to play #TheRayneLegacy again and I spent probably two or three days playing for large portions of the day.

Felicity and Geisha had a birthday and became teenagers.

They both worked diligently on honing their skills and each of them got a job; Felicity as a landscaper and Geisha as a babysitter. There has been a lot of playing instruments, going to work, going to school, gardening and cooking in their lives of late.

All three girls went on another family camping trip, and aside from the fact that Geisha gets a negative moodlet every time she interacts with her friend, the bear, it was a pretty great experience.

They returned home just in time for Evyn’s birthday. I have yet to be able to get over a bronze medal for a birthday party with #TheRayneLegacy…

Happy Birthday Evyn!

Happy Birthday Evyn!

Now, we are definitely getting close to the end of an era – a.k.a the end of the first generation of my legacy-esque challenge. I suspect that the next time I get on here, Evyn will die as she has been perpetually tense or uncomfortable and that Felicity and Geisha will age up to Young Adults.

As you’ll probably remember, I’ve chosen to stick with a first-born matriarchy, so Felicity will become the heir to the 2nd generation of #TheRayneLegacy.

As I said, big changes are coming! And I couldn’t be more excited!!!
