Season 3: End of Round

End of Round 3

Whew, round 3 is done.  We've added an entirely new household, Mimoza 2.  Round 4 brings at least 2 new babies into the hood, and Darin/Tosha, Tanner/Meadow come back to their respective houses and may start families of their own.  Overall university has been successful for everyone, only Tosha missing the one final kept her for the 4.0, and we will add the last 5 (I believe) kids who started as toddlers to the uni roster.

I enjoyed playing this round and am excited to see what the new babies look like.  I'm also excited to see what Tanner and Meadow and Darin and Tosha are able to do with their lives now.  Each of them brought back some painting from the greek house money. (I decided to try something new with my Greek house members.  The first two semesters their live in the greek house all money made get donated to the Greek house (like dues) and then every semester after that the Greek house gets 1/2 and the student gets half.)  Hope you come back soon to see how round 4 goes.

University Season 2.5

Var-Oresha-Fruhm Greek House
Darin Ramiel: Male YA | Knowledge | Capricorn | Become Criminal Mastermind
Meadow Thayer: Female YA | Family | Aquarius | Becomes Captian Hero
Tanner Svajone: Male YA | Pleasure | Taurus | Become Game Designer
Tosha Go: Female YA | Family | Aquarius | Becomes Captain Hero
Eugene Morpheus: Male YA | Family | Pisces | Marry off 6 Kids
Jaiden Phillppine: Female YA | Family | Aquaris | Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens

Last Time: Eugene arrived at university and stayed in the dorms until he got accepted into the Var-Orshea-Fruhm Greek house.  He then moved to the Greek house to join the others.  Jaiden Phillppine become Eugene's love interest and also pledged and then moved into the Greek house.  The kids partied, studied, and made friends.  Jaiden and Eugene made it into the SS.

So far Tosha, Meadow, Darin and Eugene have all managed to make Big Sim on Campus by having 12 friends or more.  Only Tanner and Jaiden still have to finish making enough friends.  Tanner is close, and if he can once again become friends with Meadow he will only need one or two more friends.  They go to class at the same time, and arrive back at the same time, but still are not close.

The Cow and Llama mascots get in a fight, which chased the cow off.  This is fine with everyone as the cow mascot isn't overly welcome at the moment.

More parties, and Darin talks with another uni girl.  Everyone works on making some friends, or strengthening the ones they already have.

Things are finally getting a little more normal between Tanner and Meadow.  She gives him a back rub one morning.

Eugene and Jaiden are also still doing good and share a back rub as well.

Everyone does a lot of homework, yes school work does occur between parties.

Tosha gets her bronze gardening badge.  She harvests these tomatoes, which are tasty.  They will be added to the juicer and fridge to be used in the future.

Tanner and Darin sit down and play some games, and Eugene comes in to watch and chat with the guys.  It's sort of a guys night in.

Darin works on his term paper, and the strange occurrence from the first university round in the Greek house remains a mystery.

Tosha continues to work in the garden.  She and Meadow both have Nature as their predestined hobby and spend a lot of time hiking together and tending the small garden.

Since she is home and awake Tosha also takes care of the apple tree they have.

Almost the entire group sits down at the dinning room table together for the first time in awhile.  While Tanner and Meadow are at opposite ends of the table, they are mostly back to normal.  Tanner is still slightly mad, but he and Meadow are back to friends.

The coach comes by and Jaiden starts working out, although she hardly needs to.  She isn't even close to being unfit, but the coach is very determined.

Meadow also gets her bronze gardening badge for working in the garden and with the orchard tree.  She is getting close to maxing out her nature hobby, and shouldn't have a hard time finishing once they get back to Clovercrest.

Darin and Tosha have never lost eyes for each other.  Darin has at least 3 other girls who he has 3-bolts of attraction with, including Meadow and Jaiden, but he has never strayed.

Eugene still had the wish to get engaged locked in.  Jaiden had not rolled up a wish to get engaged to Eugene, but during a date he decided it was time, and asked.  Jaiden said yes and both were very happy.

Jaiden and Eugene both wanted to earn skill points, so each sat down to study.  Tanner continues to play some games.

With all of the school work out of the way and just awaiting finals Tanner maxes out his gaming enthusiasm. He gains his hobby plaque, and heads off to his final.

A graduation party was thrown for everyone, and Tosha and Tanner are in their caps and gowns.

Eugene and Meadows shows off their caps and gowns, and all kinds of people are invited to join the party.

The guests show up in large groups and hang out for the party.  It's a great party and everyone has a great time.  At the end of the party Tosha, Meadow, Darin and Tanner all head back to Clovercrest to start their adult lives.

Eugene and Jaiden will stay in the Greek house and carry out their junior and senior years here.  The rest of the kids from Clovercrest will head to uni next round and can fill the greek house once again.

Season 3: The Mimoza Family 2

Mimoza Family
Bob Mimoza: Male Adult | Popularity | Aries | Have 20 Simultaneous Pet Best Friends

During the very beginning of the Mimoza update Bob moved out to find his own place.  He moved right across the street from the rest of his family, but the first day came home fired.  He went to look for a new job, and ended up getting his old job back.

He decided to celebrate by accepting an outing invite from the blonde he had originally thought would become his wife.  They are fun friends now.  We tried a new place I haven't taken sims to before.

The outing had fun, but there were some weird issues with this lot.  I sent everyone home and did some editing to the lot.  Hopefully next time we visit here it will be better.

Finally Bob was able to greet Carla, the island girl he had fallen for last round.  She had taken quite a trip to come visit him but he didn't plan on letting her leave.

Carla agreed to move in, and they went down to get her some new clothes.  No need to be in island girl garb unless she wanted to be.

Carla Reamon
LTW: Have 20 Simultaneous Best Friends
Turn Ons/Off: Fitness and Red Hair NOT Fatness

She liked her new look and so do I.  Her lips are her most prominent feature, but she isn't a bad looking sim. She will help add new little dark haired kids to the neighborhood. :)

Back at home we greet nearly everyone that comes over since these are two pop sims.  Bob works on greeting every animal that walks by to start working on his pet friends.

Bob doesn't want to wait and asks Carla to marry him.  She says yes, but has a red memory from it.  I look at her memories and she didn't fear it.  Then I look at her fears and she fears Bob leaving her at the alter.  Seems like she's worry he's going to change his mind.  It's sweet to me that she's worried, but Bob only wants her.

Well that and pet friends.  This dog comes by a few times and Bob tries to get to know him a bit more.  I don't think they are quite friends, but I'm hoping we'll ge there.

The day finally comes for the wedding and all of Bob's family and friends are invited.  Carla doesn't have any family left, and doesn't have many friends, but her one island girl friend is invited.  I don't remember if she came.

The wedding arch is up and the couple gets ready and waits for the crowd.  Carla looked beautiful in her mother's wedding dress.  Carla said it was the only thing she had left of her.

There wasn't a lot of money to spend on frills, like chairs, so once everyone is in place the wedding begins.

And a tickle session at the end seals the deal.  Carla Reamon is now Carla Mimoza.  She is happy to be married, and I'm sure relieved that Bob didn't change his mind.

Cake was shared, quietly, as a small moment between the couple.  Everyone else was inside dancing the night away.

After a wonderful wedding party the couple heads out on their honeymoon.  Bob was going to suggest heading to her home island, but Carla wanted to see the mountains.

Since they didn't think camping seemed right for their honeymoon they decided to go get a small cabin that was close by to the things they wanted to do.

Bob got them all checked in and they unloaded everything into the cabin.  Then it was time to head out on some adventures.

They took a tour and Carla snapped a photo of Bob and their tour guide along the way.  It was fun.

Then while Bob learned a new massage technique (Carla did to afterwards) Carla learned to slap dance.  She already Hula's so now both dance will spread through the hood.

Then it was time for some food.  What better thing to eat in a mountain getaway then flapjacks hot of the....stove.

Carla spent some time that night back at the cabinet relaxing in the hammock.  It was a fun first day.

Back inside, however, for Bob the first day wasn't quite over.  This was a honeymoon after all.

The next morning over some waffles the couple talked about their travels, Carla told him she would like to take a trip home with him someday to show him her home.

The couples first stop was to try their hands at ax throwing.  Both did a pretty decent job.  Although multiple times they dropped the ax before actually throwing it.

Carla was very determined to get it right.  The look on her face is almost comical.  I'm not sure this snapshot is one she'll pick for an album.

After throwing the axes they checked out the tree rings, and then went to see how they fared at log rolling.  Carla won most of the time, but Bob did eventually beat her before they were tired enough to head back to the cabin.

Some fun was had on the hammock once they got back.  I'm still following my test to see if they try for baby, but so far it seems they either haven't tried or nothing has happened.

That night, on their last night, they roasted marshmallows around the fire and just talked about things they were interested in and how they wanted to live their life together.

It was a good honeymoon and vacation for both.  Back at home it was back to work for Bob and his sister-in-law, who is in the same office, came home with him.  She is very pregnant.

He took some time to talk to his new little niece or nephew.  It was going to be weird not being around for this one....he helped raised the other three.

But Bob isn't going to have time for that, he's going to be raising his own little one before too long.  Carla is pregnant.

Smuttle dancing in the kitchen seemed like the best way to celebrate the occasion.

Since Bob still wants a bunch of pet best friend he greats a small little passing by dog.  They are soon friends.  Hopefully this means he will visit again and they can become best friends.

Finally Bob greets the glowing eyed wolf.  They are starting to become friends, which simmers will know what that holds for Bob later on.

That however brings us to the end of the round for the second Mimoza family and it's time to head back to university to start the final year of the 4 Seniors there.  Next round another baby Mimoza will be born and we will have two Gen 2 babies.
