This was a fun read. I like the characters, and their interactions.

As for your BLT question, I think they buy pre-cooked bacon, already smashed flat, for ease of use. I know it's possible to buy it in stores, IRL, so why not sims?

I don't know why I didn't think of that, it makes so much more sense! Though, I don't think pre-cooked bacon tastes as good, but hey maybe it's good in the sims. :haha:

Great start, Haleigh! :D
Spoiler:
I think Laurel is so interesting-looking, and her daughter is so cute as a child. It will be interesting to see how she and her siblings grow up!


I have to weigh in on the bacon issue: I doubt anything you can make on the lawn with a bargain refrigerator and a single counter tastes all that great, so they're probably just thinking, "Yeah! A meat-ish product! Finally!" :spin:

Aww, the babies are all grown up. Well, teens.

Spoiler:
Yeah, I like Juniper as heiress, too.

Oh, cowplant. According to Carl's Sims 4 guide, the cowplant has to first drain a sim, and then swallow them again to kill them. Also, the first time, the plant drains their emotion, and you can drink it (he recommends saving it for when you need it for a promotion, or something) and get the emotion they had when they were swallowed. The second time, when it kills them, THEN it gives the life-extension, and actually sets them back to the beginning of their life stage. I haven't done it, myself, but that's the explanation. So, yeah, the cowplant is still useful. It's just different than before.

I love the passing out all over the place.

Also, my favorite part about your house is the porch, with the rounded corners.

Oh wow, that's cool! I guess I should have done my research. I'm sure I'm bound to get another sim that has the freelance botanist aspiration, so maybe then I'll keep it ;)

And thank you! It was inspired by a house the Taube built in her Gregory legacy, she used the rounded porch and I thought it was super cool so I wanted to try it. Their house shape is based on the house I use for my Queen Bee challenge in TS2 ;) I kept thinking of The Notebook house with the big wrap around porch so I wanted their porch big :D

Thank you again for reading, I'm glad you enjoyed it! :) I had a day off so I wanted to get as much playing as I could before I have to go to work Tomorrow! :)

Just read the first two chapters - loved it!

Spoiler:
Aww, three girls! All are really cute, but glad Juniper was selected as heir! Those lips on the other two are very big! Where did they come from? Hahahha

I'm glad you both enjoyed it :)

Abby, they are from their father. And while they don't look bad on him, they look weird on girls.

I should have a new chapter up tonight or tomorrow :)

Hi! :wave:

Spoiler:
The girls are all so pretty! I actually don't mind the big lips on them, I think they pull them off better than some sims do.
I am happy that Juniper is the heir though, as she seems like the one most fun to play. :)
I like that you are actually doing all of the extra challenges and such for this legacy. Makes it really interesting to read!
Oh, Baby! A WYDC

Fantastic! I'm loving this legacy!

Spoiler:
Those girls are gorgeous! And I bet Basil will be a handsome tyke! I don't really know if you have it already but there is a Sims 4 story progression mod. If you want your spares to have lives without doting hours and hours upon them, this is what I would suggest. Looking forward to chapter 4!

Great Updates!! You are progressing quickly with this legacy! :bounce:

I really like how you play your spares too and get them all set up for a nice little happy life!
I've been trying to do that this generation with my current legacy too, normally I just kick them out and leave them be. :rotfl:

Abby, I'm glad you're enjoying it!

I always play my spares in my Sims 2 legacies, and I just felt like it was wrong not to give them some sort of life in TS4 :)

Chapter Six is now up!
