Bachelor 4.3: Episode 12- Let’s Go Swimming

Bachelor4.3text

If you need a refresher, or if this is your first visit, head back to episode 1..

Only four participants remain. Will Dalton fall in love with one of them?

Erica makes Dalton feel at ease. He can easily see her in his friend circle….gardening, hiking, or hanging out by the campfire. But is there the potential for romance?

With Karissa, Dalton felt an immediate spark. Karissa received both the first impression save in round one, and the first kiss. But are they connecting on a deeper level?

Sabrina seems to have the full package. Dalton finds her attractive and they get along. But do they have enough common interests?

And then there is Penelope. After her many failed romantic attempts, why is she still around? Dalton appreciates her effort and values someone who is willing to work hard at a relationship.

Which of them is right for Dalton? Are any of them?

In this episode, Round 4 starts off with a trip to the bluffs for a day of swimming.

03-14-16_11-43-10 AM

Erica was quick to turn the conversation flirty.

03-14-16_11-44-46 AM

And was the first to have some alone time with Dalton.

03-14-16_11-45-58 AM

Penelope joined the conversation as they discussed how they get ready for a date.

03-14-16_11-46-20 AM

And what sort of restaurants they like to eat at when going out.

03-14-16_11-46-34 AM

Obviously, Dalton would prefer to go somewhere that has grilled cheese available, in case of rain.

03-14-16_11-47-15 AM

Penelope’s restaurant priorities involve desserts.

03-14-16_11-49-12 AM

Karissa was feeling pretty bummed for much of the day.

03-14-16_11-49-18 AM

Karissa: It’s hard. I hate having to share you with a bunch of other people. I’m not really interested in talking to them.

03-14-16_11-50-08 AM

Sabrina: Hey, want to hear a joke about dinosaurs? One dinosaur asks another dinosaur ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’

03-14-16_11-51-03 AM

Sabrina got snuggled up to Dalton, while a depressed Karissa took a nap on the rocks.

03-14-16_11-51-08 AM

Karissa was a bit upset she had to share Dalton on this date, and she wasn’t happy with the other girls.

03-14-16_11-52-35 AM

Penelope also found some alone time with Dalton.

03-14-16_11-53-51 AM

Dalton joined Karissa on the bench to try to cheer her up. It didn’t seem to help much.

03-14-16_2-17-59 PM

That evening, Erica went out to water the flowers.

03-14-16_2-18-18 PM

While Penelope played the piano.

03-14-16_2-19-27 PM

Sabrina did a bit of cooking.

03-14-16_2-19-39 PM

And Karissa ate some more food.

The Adventure of Blossom May: Day 1

03-31-16_10-20-36 AM

Here I am in my new home. It’s still a little boring…no decorations yet, but it’s fully furnished. I moved here, Willow Creek, because they have this thing called the Spring Challenge.

03-31-16_11-45-26 AM

This is my home. I didn’t spend that much time in it today. As soon as I arrived, I went out in search of the community organizer who told me how to complete the growfruit challenge, and about the egg collecting challenge.

03-31-16_10-07-16 AM

The eggs can be found all around town, in community parks and other areas, hidden behind plants or in logs.

03-31-16_11-41-38 AM

A few of my neighbors stopped by to welcome me into the neighborhood, which was very kind of them.

03-31-16_11-44-00 AM

They left me a fruitcake. It was SO helpful, as I had no food in the house. Saved me from having to cook or order pizza!

03-31-16_11-45-21 AM

Here’s the view from my yard on the side of my house. There’s a river/canal sort of thing down there. There’s a spot where people can fish, and there’s a path that people use to get to other parts of the town. I also see a lot of runners.

03-31-16_11-44-53 AM

It’s only day one, and I’m already making progress on the growfruit challenge! I planted this sapling today. How exciting!

03-31-16_10-17-59 AM

I think that’s it for now. Am I totally crazy for being here? I don’t know anyone here. I don’t know how to garden. I don’t know anything about this town. I’m here on a whim. I really hope things work out for me.

 

Returning Soon

Thank you for your continued patience.

I did manage to free up some space in the media library of this blog. We’ll be okay for a little while, but we’ll encounter the problem again in the not too distant future. You can help me upgrade the blog by donating to my Patreon (it’s under the name of my main site, Crazy Cat Nerd).

I was delayed further by the passing of my very dear cat, Harree. 😥 I wasn’t in a Sim space last week. And I’m still coming out of it.And it doesn’t help that I’m addicted to Stardew Valley, which has a way of cheering me up and relaxing me in a way that the Sims doesn’t.

I am working on a blog post, and hope to have a post up by the end of the week. More next week.

An update was just released for the Sims, and if I can get Origin to work properly with Windows 10 (I just upgraded, possibly another reason for post delays), I’ll update the game. The update includes an Easter egg hunt. Despite my intentions, I failed to participate last year. Let’s see if I can manage this year.

BACHELOR 4.3: EPISODE 10-Weenie Roast

Bachelor4.3text

It’s time for another episode of the Bachelor. In this episode, we’ll see the round three party.

03-01-16_2-14-21 PM

Vivian Lewis was hired as the grillmaster. This is the second event she’s been hired for, and she has under performed at both. She didn’t even touch the grill!

Dalton is wondering if just hot dogs are sufficient for dinner, or if they should be roasting veggies instead.

Sabrina is wondering what a weenie roast has to do with finding her one true love.

03-01-16_2-15-45 PM

Dalton made up an adventure story to tell to the group about Pirates. Karissa and Simone seem to be the only ones who are interested.

03-01-16_2-16-33 PM

Sabrina makes sure to get in some flirting before the party is over.

03-01-16_2-17-33 PM

Later, while chatting around the campfire. Sabrina brings up one of Dalton’s favorite topics…sports.

03-01-16_3-09-39 PM

Sabrina and Simone discuss tomorrow’s eliminations. Who will be sent home? Surely it cannot be one of them.

Who do you think will be sent home in the next round?

 

BACHELOR 4.3: EPISODE 9-First Kiss

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome back to the Bachelor! Last episode, Erica won our round 3 group activity and earned some one-on-one time with Dalton. In this episode, Dalton will choose one participant to join him on a date.

03-01-16_11-31-15 AM

Dalton chose Karissa for his third one-on-one. We know there is chemistry between them, but is there the potential for more?

03-01-16_11-35-51 AM

Dalton: Are you into music? I play a bit of guitar.

Karissa: I’m into the band Larry and the Llamas.

03-01-16_11-36-50 AM

Dalton: I’m into all kinds of sports, even boxing.

03-01-16_11-37-03 AM

Dalton: Have you traveled a lot?

Karissa is thinking ‘say something romantic’.

03-01-16_11-37-20 AM

Dalton: You know, I find you extremely attractive.

 03-01-16_11-39-02 AM

He always needs to use the rest room at the most inconvenient times.

03-01-16_11-40-23 AM

After their conversation, they spent some time on the dance floor.

03-01-16_11-41-56 AM

We also had the first kiss of this series!

03-01-16_12-59-20 PM

When they returned to the farm house, Dalton was feeling both romantic and inspired. He went up to the attic to do some painting. I think he is working on a recreation of the scene from Lady and the Tramp…he is not a painter.

 

BACHELOR 4.3: EPISODE 8- The Garden Grows

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome back to the start of the third round of the Bachelor! Dalton, the handsome do-good-er who only eats Grilled Cheese when it’s raining and prefers cupcakes over sports cars is searching for his soulmate!

In round 1, we said goodbye to Ansuya. In round 2, we said farewell to Raven. Who will leave this round?

03-01-16_8-36-32 AM

As we’ve mentioned before, Dalton loves the great outdoors. He likes camping, hiking, fishing and gardening. He’d prefer a partner who doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty once and awhile.

03-01-16_8-40-11 AM

As such, today’s challenge was a gardening activity! The participants planted seedlings in the yard of the farm house. The participant who enjoyed themselves the most would win some alone time with Dalton. Karissa was the first to dig in.

03-01-16_8-40-03 AM

Simone and Penelope each did their share, but Sabrina preferred to observe and drink a cocktail.

03-01-16_8-39-59 AM

As you might have guessed, Erica left everyone in the dust (or potting soil!) when it came to this activity. Not only did she enthusiastically work her own plot, she assisted others, and discussed gardening with anyone who was interested. By the evening, many contestants were exhausted, but she was invigorated.

03-01-16_8-49-00 AM

Dalton: I think this series of the Bachelor has been pretty drama-free so far. I was warned their could be some issues. Have you noticed anything?

Erica: Not really. I think everyone gets along pretty well. 

03-01-16_8-49-44 AM

Erica: So, I heard you are a huge fan of cupcakes?

03-01-16_8-49-55 AM

Dalton: Your eyes are like swirling cups of coffee and your skin is the vanilla foam on top of coffee.

Erica: Are you new at this whole flirting thing?

03-01-16_8-50-02 AM

Erica: Tell me something about yourself.

Dalton: I don’t like bugs.

03-01-16_8-50-31 AM

While Dalton was reminiscing about his days in highschool, Erica attempted to pull the same move Penelope tried last night.

03-01-16_8-50-25 AM

Dalton didn’t fall for it, but he didn’t get too upset either. He just politely extricated himself, and went to use the restroom.

03-01-16_9-45-28 AM

Who gets up at 8 am and craves Mac n’ Cheese for breakfast? That guy!

Who will get the 1 on 1 date this round? Find out in our next episode!
