Raven is looking to meet her (preferably wealthy) future husband. Raven desires to live in a gorgeous mansion someday. She’s interested in turning her mansion into a home…making sure it’s perfectly decorated, full of life, brimming with beautiful art and that grounds are well-maintained.

Raven has a refined taste and prefers to surround herself with other people who do as well. She enjoys having the best of everything. She’s a perfectionist and likes everything to be in order, aesthetically-pleasing, and done right.

Update: Bachelor, Community Town, New Content!

I missed posting the last couple of days because of a busy weekend and an unexpected dental emergency.  (Blah!) I’m still playing as often as I can, but posts might be irregular this week as I have oral surgery scheduled later in the week.

GOOD news! I dug up some old gift cards that I had saved for a rainy day and I was able to buy the newest Sims expansion (released tomorrow) plus the two most recent stuff packs that I hadn’t purchased (Spooky Stuff and Cool Kitchens) so I am fully up-to-date on all Sims 4 content! The new expansion (Get Together) will definitely provide some useful interactions for the Bachelor, but I am most looking forward to implementing the new club features in our community town. I also think the new singles nights at the bars and clubs will be very helpful for Sims looking for a partner! Spooky Stuff will let us throw a Spooky-themed party during the Bachelor- I already have it scheduled!

Bachelor Update: I’ve made contestant #6, and he will be posted shortly (tomorrow?). I’m also in search of a good Bachelor-house.

Community Town Newcrest: I’m half-way through the week with the Valentine’s the babies aged up into kiddos and I’m having a lot of fun with this adorable family unit!

Bachelor 4.2: Call for Contestants!

Newcrest is Safe!

Don’t worry, I’m still playing our lovely community town of Newcrest 100%. You should anticipate an update on Megera Bubbettes soon. However, I am missing the romance and match-making of the Bachelor, also the feeling of accomplishing something (the Bachelor has an ending, unlike Newcrest!) is something I enjoy in the Sims.

A New Bachelor is Afoot!

Therefore, I’m also starting a new Bachelor challenge! You can submit either gender using the below form, but please note the Bachelor will be a male this round. Therefore, if you create a heterosexual male he will not be used this round.

Candidates that are not chosen this round, or are not matched with the Bachelor this round, may appear in subsequent rounds.

The survey is broken into 7 pages, and has been kept to a reasonable length. It’s a bit longer than the Community Town form, but not by much (extra page of Bachelor-specific questions). All questions are optional, so you may skip any questions you don’t want to answer, and I’ll generate a random answer for you.

If the form below isn’t working for you, or you’d prefer not to use it, you can also go here.

Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 5 Part B

Host: After a substantial grieving period for the loss of a contestant, the Bachelor challenge is back on track with our two final contestants participating in one-on-one overnight cabin dates!

03-17-15_6-30 PM-2

After a bit of conversation and some flirting, Steven wandered off to take a nap while Tanner took a shower.

03-17-15_6-31 PM

Fire: crackle crackle snap pop crackle

03-17-15_6-36 PM

Steven: It’s really beautiful out here.

Tanner: Yeah. I had a great time playing horseshoes earlier today.

03-17-15_7-05 PM

Tanner: This show is insane. She’s never seen him outside the bear costume. How are they dating?

03-17-15_7-05 PM-2

03-17-15_7-06 PM

Host: Before starting his next date. Tanner went back to the mansion.

03-17-15_8-07 PM

Where they ghost of Stephanie made an appearance. We’ve never had a haunted Bachelor Mansion before!

The final date was with Tanya…

03-17-15_8-15 PM

Tanner: That one is totally a schoolbus.

Tanya: No, no, no…that’s an elephant.

03-17-15_8-17 PM

Tanner: Let’s see if we can get the cabin in the background.

03-17-15_8-38 PM

03-17-15_8-41 PM

03-17-15_8-44 PM

Host: Tanner made fish tacos for dinner.

03-17-15_9-27 PM

Tanner and Tanya got some practice being domestic together.

03-17-15_9-28 PM-2

Romance in the kitchen.

03-17-15_9-29 PM

Well, he’s certainly smitten.

03-17-15_9-29 PM-2

Tanner was a little confused about where this joke was headed…

03-17-15_9-29 PM-3

But it all worked out.

03-17-15_9-30 PM

And Tanya showed off her back massage skills.

Who will Tanner choose? Steven or Tanya? Will he propose? Find out on the next episode!

Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 5 Part A

Author’s Note: Honestly, I have NO idea what happened here, and I am not responsible for it. I let the contestants do their own thing, and just worry about the Bachelor’s needs and wants. I wasn’t even near that section of the house…it was seriously a “wait, why is the grim reaper on the lot?” moment. Sigh. BUT I love a good story, love random events, and hate “exiting without saving” in order to avoid something inconvenient…so…

Host: Last time on the Bachelor, Tanner said “goodbye” to his best friend Anna because the chemistry just wasn’t there. Then…a body was discovered in the pool?!

03-16-15_7-09 PM-2

The ominous music indicated to us that the Grim Reaper had arrived on the lot. We found him next to the pool.

03-16-15_7-10 PM

Tanner was the first to arrive on the scene. He cried and pleaded for the deceased. He did really try, but the Grim Reaper did not see fit to release the body back to our world.

03-16-15_7-09 PM

Rest in peace Stephanie. We don’t know why you were swimming alone at midnight, or why you drowned in pool that had stairs, but we hope there is a life jacket for you in the afterlife.

03-16-15_7-38 PM

Tanner spent a large part of the following day underneath the blankets refusing to come out. We canceled dates until everyone recovered from their sadness.

03-16-15_7-42 PM 03-16-15_7-42 PM-2 03-16-15_7-42 PM-3 03-16-15_7-42 PM-4

There was a lot of mourning in the house. Her epitaph, by the way, includes “Told great monkey jokes.”

03-16-15_7-44 PM 03-16-15_8-07 PM 03-16-15_8-09 PM

Tanner gave himself pep talks, played sad music on the violin (it sounded awful because he doesn’t actually know how to play the violin), and played hopeful music on the guitar.

03-16-15_8-33 PM

Eventually, he began to come around, and the Bachelor was back on.

With only two contestants remaining, we had to jump to the final round of one-on-one cabin dates. We’ll see how those go next time!

Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 4 Part C

Host: We’re in the final episode of Round 4 of the Bachelor. Four contestants left- Anna, Stephanie, Steven and Tanya. Anna received the one-on-one last episode. Tonight we have a brunch party and then someone will get sent home!

03-16-15_6-52 PM

Tanner made everyone pancakes for brunch and they all  ate around the table together.

03-16-15_6-54 PM

Tanner entertained everyone by telling jokes. Stephanie joined in.

03-16-15_6-55 PM

And then there was some dancing. Tanya actually IS dancing in this picture. She’s just doing some sort of angry dance, maybe?

With a simple brunch and just a small group, there really wasn’t much excitement in this party.

03-16-15_6-58 PM

Tanner: The decisions are extremely difficult now. I feel a connection with each and every one of you. I have become such good friends with all of you.

03-16-15_7-00 PM


03-16-15_7-00 PM-2


03-16-15_7-01 PM


03-16-15_7-02 PM

Tanner: This is awful. Out of everyone, I have grown the closest to you. I feel like you are my best friend. And I really, really wish there was something there, but….

Anna: I know.

03-16-15_7-03 PM-2

Host: Later that evening….

03-16-15_7-09 PM-2




Tune in next time to see who died in the pool!
