We managed to move over the course of two days-- but not whole days, only at night because everyone had to work. It was more like one day really. So the place is a MESS. But I got my bookcase put together and now I have my computer set up again all nice and cozy. Hmm... how long can I really go without being able to see the stove? Do I really need to see the stove?
Well, I figured sort of as a celebration I'd post some pics I haven't really been able to turn into a story. And I figured I'd feature Ama because she is the daughter of one of my favorite sims and so she's becoming one of my favorites as well. (If I still have this blog when she's a teen, I can see trouble with a capital "A.")
Right now she's just a cutie with attitude though. She likes to get up in the morning and greet her ants in her little ant farm,
She has this thing with bugs. Bug hunting is her favorite thing to do. This is Ama hunting bugs in front of her mother's work. (Remember when she got grounded that one time?)
Ama likes talking about bugs when company is over for dinner. In this case, their guest did not react the way Ama expected-- much to her great disappointment.
My favorite pics of Ama came from the time she caught some fireflies outside so she could sleep by their mysterious green light.
I love this one. Her eyes look like they're shining brightly as she watches the jar of bugs.
Ama gets it from her mother. Bonnie Centowski is the sort of sim who will be your best friend in a matter of minutes. If you aren't careful, she'll have you outside in the makeover chair she keeps out back giving you a new hair style that you won't be able to say no to.
Like Orlando's guest the other day. Orlando Centowski shows up with this odd sim wearing too much make up and one of those slutty outfits from the Night Life expansion, and Bonnie welcomes the woman into her home as if she were a friend of the family! She gives her a free make over, and even offers her a discount if she comes by the clothing store and lets Bonnie pick out a new outfit for her. (Hmm, ok, maybe Bonnie did notice the outfit.)
Bonnie was something of a troubled teen, and that happened to be when Orlando came into her life. He was rather plain compared to her colorfulness. I think Bonnie at first only used him as an excuse to get out of the house and simply never bothered to delve any deeper into the boy.
Until college that is. Bonnie had never been one of those girls to dream of getting married in a white dress in a church with 500 people she hardly knew watching. She certainly was not the type of girl who would want some extravagant or public proposal.
But Orlando showed he understood her better than anyone else. He invested his own money to help her start her own clothing shop. It nearly brought her to tears to think someone could believe in her like that. And then, while she stood there fighting back tears, he proposed with a knowing smile on his face.
And they've lived happily ever after since.
