Yay! Two more updates, and I'm all caught up.

Spoiler:
Awww, they're so cute together! Good for Orlando for proposing, after all.

Twenty businesses! That is awesome! I don't know how you keep track of it all, really. And, uhhhhh, what ARE you going to do about that unexpected romance? Hmmmm...

All caught up again!

Spoiler:
Yay for engagement, marriage, and pregnancy all in one update! Not to mention the building of a new business. A lot happened in the Walker household this season!

Congrats on getting 20 businesses! That's a lot of community lots in one neighborhood, but that's awesome. :) I also can't wait to see some of those adorable kittens get adopted by people on the island. They deserve a good home where they'll get played with by little kids and petted by grandparents. <3

Me too! Took me a couple days to get all caught up!

Spoiler:
Congrats on being so close to another BD. It's so exciting earning those! I can't wait to see the kittens around the neighborhood. They're going to be so cute. The womrats live absolutely forever. I don't think I've ever had one die. The birds drop like flys though.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

Wow, it's been a while and I completely forgot to reply to all of your comments, sorry! Thank you guys! :D

It's been a few months since my last update because I was busy playing Sims 4, but I'm back because I miss Blueberry Island! Here's an update: Harris!

Nice family update :) I'm happy to see Blueberry Island back, it's looking so pretty!

I get why you want a less-fancy restaurant, but I'm jealous. MV desperately needs one of any kind, and you sure did a good job decorating Walker's!

Also, congrats on the population, I forgot you were doing so well :highfive:

Your BaCC is amazing! I love your beautiful lots, and your fantastic businesses. I am so jealous of your building and decorating skills! Your city feels real; all the sims feel like real people and real families, and I absolutely love it. Can't wait for your next update.

Thank you! :D I love how the town is starting to fill up!
Ha, thanks! I'm really quite proud of how Walker's turned out. Still amazed at how easy it was to run, too. I've always found restaurants to be a pain, but this one was really easy.

Aw, thank you so much for the amazing compliments, I really appreciate it! :D :hug:

She's adorable! I thought her face looked a little awkward as a toddler and child, but she really grew into it. Thank you, Avenie! :D

Spent the past few days catching up :)

I need to start taking notes for comments. I always forget what I want to say lol. I love this neighborhood, the dynamics of the families is great. I'm happy Eric and Lilly got together. Can't wait to see what happens next

Pony - I forget what I wanted to say, too.

Just read the last two chapters - Harris and Chin, Winter 3, and really enjoyed them.

Regarding restaurants - I have NEVER been able to make one profitable (not counting cash perks, and really, those should not count, because if you're getting all your money from cash perks, the business is not *actually* profitable. And they're hard to run. I love having the cafeteria worker on community lots, though, so if I'm just looking for a place for sims to be able to eat, I give them a cafeteria worker. But I don't count that as a restaurant for the Culinary job openings. Those require fully functional restaurants (at least in my own mind, they do. I've seen it done differently in other BACC's and I'm totally NOT judging). But really, if they get it to level 5, I consider it play-tested enough, and it's time to just have the owner "ignore" it - meaning, it's open to other families to visit, but the owner never actually goes there to run it, again, unless I'm feeling masochistic.

Spoiler:
Congrats to Gretchen for so many promotions! Hopefully next week she can top Business. :) The girls are all so cute! And I'm glad to see that the family business is doing well, even if they had to take a break for a bit because of the kids. Hopefully now that the twins are teens they can help out as well!

Love the ginger household!
Watching Sims eat meals together at the table always makes me hungry.
Rapunzel is a great name for a hair salon!
Loved Jamie getting close to her grandma :)
Congrats to Adam, and go Gretchen, go!
