Wade (R7)

Brittany Parker and William Wade are the first 100% townie couple in Silvervale. They both graduated from Sim State and have moved back to Silvervale to start their family. Will they be able to conceive a baby to meet their Family priorities? Lets see

Brittany and William broke in their new home the only way a couple could

Both were able to find decent paying jobs William took a job in Law Enforcement hoping one day to climb to the top and become a Captain Hero

Brittany found a job in Architecture thinking it might be nice to teach architecture at some point in the Future

Despite their college educations neither Brittany or William were good cooks

So they ended up having take out their first night in their new house

After dinner, the couple went shopping for wedding clothes. Brittany found a beautiful Roman style dress that would be perfect for their moonlit wedding plans

William wanted to surprise his fiance so he bought her a nice necklace to go with her dress

The next day, in the early evening the guests arrived for the wedding

Janet Devivio and Stella Terrano (not pictured: Ricky Cormier)

Jeannie Vijayakar, Kurt Devivio, Wesley Teer, Addison Teer

At Dusk the guests took their seats and William waited nervously at the arch for his bride to walk down the aisle. Brittany, looking radiant under the moonlight joined William at the arch and they began to recite their vows

They then exchanged rings

And their first kiss as a married couple

All the guests cheered them on

Then it was Party Time! Of course no wedding party would be complete without some Smustling

After the Smustle, it was time to cut the cake

A late dinner and conversation were enjoyed by all

The party was a roaring success

After all the guests departed the Limo William booked came to take the couple away for the evening even though the new couple couldn't afford to take a fancy honeymoon

The next day it was back to reality. During her first day at the architecture firm, Brittany was faced with a tough decision

Luckily it panned out and she even received a promotion for being such a good judge of character

Brittany had felt queasy all day and, as she ascended the stairs to their house, wondered if their wishes for children had come true already

That evening, the Wades got a surprise visitor

Only being in the house 2 days, they didn't have time to get a burglar alarm installed. The burglar made off with the stereo they had bought for the wedding

And the TV

William heard noises downstairs and called the cops

Eventually they arrived and helped capture the burglar

The insurance money was enough to replace the TV that the burglar had stolen

Luckily Brittan slept through the whole ordeal. She found out the next morning that she was indeed pregnant, so it was good that she didn't have the stress of the burglary

Brittany told William that they would be expecting their first child over a game of chess

William headed to his first day of work and brought home his first promotion

With the bonus money from his promotion, William purchased a violin to pursue his love of music (his OTH) with hopes that it would be something he could share with his new son or daughter

Despite William waiting on her hand and foot, Brittany had a rough pregnancy, she was always either feeling tired or hungry, sometimes both

Brittany was relieved when she went into labor

William was at home for the delivery of their son, they were both overjoyed to be parents

Byron Wade was born with red hair, as expected, and seemed to share Brittany's complexion

After the delivery it was time to head back to work. Brittany and William weren't very happy about having to leave Byron with a nanny, but they managed to hire the best nanny in town

William continued to excel in his career and brought home another promotion

To close out the week, Bryon transitioned into a very cute, freckly little red-headed toddler, the fun was just beginning

Scoring: 1 point for Byron

Household Net-Worth: 68, 790

((OK, admittedly I gave William a makeover in SimPE to lessen the hugeness of his mouth and nose a little bit, he was just too cartoon looking for my taste. He still has the same profile though - a very prominent forehead. The wedding was beautiful and everything went swimmingly and Brittany came back from the honeymoon pregnant -- yay for InTeen and Risky Honeymoon. This couple is to strictly infuse my population with red-headed sims which I didn't have the foresight to make when I created my CAS sims. I like them but I'm not nearly as attached to them as I am to my CAS and the decendants of my CAS sims. This officially ends Round 7. You'll see a few changes in Round 8 the first of which is shorter rounds down from 7 to 5. This is purely an experiment. 7 days to me is a little too tedious especially with my limited playtime as of late [this round took me 2 months to play and blog!] so hopefully with shorter rounds I can update in a more timely manner. Also, I will be starting to draw slips from Java Jan's Jar challenge so that I can hopefully experience more things that the game has to offer. I will be updating the supplemental information in different format so keep an eye out for that as well. Oh and I love love love InTeen, that will be sticking around also. See you in Round 8!))

Teer 2 (R7)

Wesley Teer and his girlfriend, Jeannie Vijayakar, graduated from Sim State and moved back to Silvervale to start their adult lives. Being Romance sims will they stay true to one another or will they stray?

Wesley and Jeannie found a nice small house to move into on Goldtone Road next door to Carla Devivo's bungalo. The weather was so nice they couldn't resist playing outside

Mid-way through their epic pillow fight their neighbors Connor Johnston (next-door) and Kurt Devivio (across the street) came by to welcome them to the neighborhood

Both Jeannie and Wesley were able to use their degrees to find nice paying jobs. Jeannie took a job in her desired slacker career track

They even gave her a reward as a sign-on bonus -- it's not every day you get a college educated slacker

Wesley wasn't able to find a position in the culinary career but there was a position open in the showbiz career track. Wes was certain that climbing his way through show biz would put him on the easy track to celebrity chef

Wes and Jeannie enjoyed the time they were able to spend together. They were happy to be away from all the hustle and bustle of the Greek House

They ate meals together

And helped each other with their artwork. Jeannie really enjoyed painting

And Wes took to the pottery wheel, earning his bronze pottery badge

Unfortunately Wesley had too much confidence in his art taste. His boss didn't really appreciate Wesley's input

Show Business had other pitfalls too. It turned out that Wesley's prominent Teer nose wasn't going to help him at all in his career. One of his co-workers suggested he check out the home plastic surgery machine that many of the stars used to brush up their looks

Wesley was pretty happy with his new look and was sure it would help him advance in his career

Wes spent every spare moment he had primping to make sure he looked in tip top shape

Unfortunately Wesley didn't respond too well to the plastic surgery machine and contracted a bad case of laryngitis. The same co-worker that clued Wesley in about the plastic surgery machine had a nice remedy that would help Wes overcome the laryngitis in a jiffy... Wes was apprehensive about the remedy but took it anyway

Meanwhile, Jeannie had most of the week days off, people didn't really need home videos made on the weekdays anway. Jeannie took advantage of her days off and befriended some of her other neighbors.

that evening Wes brought home another promotion

Jeannie headed off to her first day as a home video editor and got a promotion that very same day

The more time he and Jeannie spent alone the more Wes was convinced that he was in love with her... even though it defied his Romance sentiments

Wes even had thoughts that he would eventually like to marry Jeannie

He was sure that Jeannie had no plans for marriage or a family so he was content just to hold her in his arms and enjoy the time they were able to spend together

Since both Jeannie and Wes didn't have to work until the evening, they decided to invite over their across the street neighbors to get to know them a little better. The Devivio's were happy to join them for dinner and some socializing

Kurt wasn't too happy with the state of the landscaping so he decided to lend a neighborly hand and trim down the shrubs in the front yard

After dinner they said goodbye to their guests and headed off to their respective jobs. Jeannie brought home another promotion and a co-worker

Jeannie recognized her co-worker as one of the graphic arts professors at Sim State and they caught up on what was going on at the college

Jeannie's old professor had such a good time chatting and Jeannie even was able to learn more from her

In the meantime, Wes got a nice chance card from work

Wes wasn't about to pass up a potential part of course

Wes did so well in the new play that he was able to bring home another promotion

To wrap out the week, Wesley invited his family over for brunch to catch up

Scoring: 0 points

Household Net-Worth: 63,525

((Well this house is nice and easy to play -- Wes and Jeannie are the most monogamous Romance sims I have ever seen. All their wants revolve around each other and I was so surprised when Wes rolled up the want to get married to Jeannie... its locked so we'll see if she rolls up the same want in the future, although I have my doubts. They are both doing pretty well in their careers but need more friends hence all the visitors this week. I don't have shots of it, but Jeannie and Kelly don't get a long at all... Jeannie just kept picking fights with Kelly, it was kind of amusing. Oh, and behold Sir Addison:

Poor Addie has the worst possible transition clothes, I can't wait to get to their house and take him and Stella shopping! We're off to the Wade house next to check up on our first 100% townie couple, Brittany Parker and William Wade))
