Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 10: Rossiter 4 Family  
Previously on the Rossiter 4 family: Whistler became engaged to Marylena after a lot of dating with Chrissy. He also moved out from the house he shared with his brother Woody.

Whistler Rossiter, popularity sim, LTW: be a celebrity chef, 6 neat, 3 shy, 6 active, 4 serious, 6 nice

Whistler invites over Marylena for a date...then she tells him that she is very poor.

Marylena is irritated that Whistler conked out on her.

And thus, the date ends.

Whistler is invited to the secret cooking lot, so he brings Marylena there on their next date.

Time for Whistler to show off his skills...I think the guy on the right made omelettes.

He wins! Marylena looks really proud.

The omelette guy tries some of Whistler's pie while Whistler shares tips.

Marylena goes home with Whistler, then he invites her to move in. She accepts.

Then ACR takes over.

Marylena takes a job in her chosen career of law enforcement.

Then she starts working out.

Marylena gains tinkering enthusiasm in her sleep.

Later, Marylena goes wedding dress shopping.

Marylena is best friends with Ivy Gable. That is nice.

I bought a sewing table for Whistler and Marylena. Maybe someone can get a gold badge.

Wedding time! Marylena gets a makeover for the wedding.

The guests arrive.

Oh look...the twins, Marjorie and Ted are best friends. That is nice.

The smustle starts early. Also look how much Evlin and Marjorie (aunt/niece) look alike. Gila gets bored and starts playing with her rubiks sphere.

Whistler is sick! Also, I love how much Gila and Arlo still dote all over each other.

Wedding time...yet the smustling continues. Only Gila sits down to watch.

The lesson here: don't turn on the music before the ceremony.

Marylena and Evlin don't get along...and now Marylena is sick.

Marylena smustles with her new bro-in-law, Arlo.

The line up for the bath.

Roof raiser! Yay!

Run to the limo!

Ooo, inside the limo.

Remember they're sick? They get home and go to bed, but Whistler has to get up to cough.

Aww, poor Whistler. He looks so miserable.

Moving on...

Marylena was inspired by Whistler's cooking contest win. But she only has 2 cooking skill points.

Oh well.


Whistler invited over his brother Arlo and family. As soon as they arrived Gila decided it was too late to have the twins out and took them home. While this was happening, Marylena arrived home with a promotion.

Awww, Arlo's fear is Whistler's death! Also, I will either make Arlo exercise like mad next time or get a new shirt.

Marylena is pregnant! And here is Marylena eating Whistler's first cheese platter.

And here is Marylena sleeping in a cheese platter.

Oh well.

Aww, cute.

Marylena is having a rough pregnancy. She sleeps on the couch so she can be closer to the kitchen.

And she eats away from the table to eliminate sleeping in the food.

Whistler comes home with a promotion and a friend.

Not a very helpful friend. He is sent home.

The baby is coming, thank God.

Jose is born! He has black hair like his mom and brown eyes like his dad.

Also, I'm tired of boys. When will another girl be born?

Real nice, Whistler. Your wife just gave birth and you complain that she's smelly.

Where you going Marylena? Also, Marylena has quite the booty.

Straight to the energizer.

Next time: Will Marylena deal with motherhood better than she did with pregnancy?

And this is the end of Round 10! These are getting longer and longer.

Also, I'm debating adding inTeen...I wouldn't do it 'til the end of Round 11 since I've already started Round 11 and I want it to be "fair." We'll see if I do.

Lucky Whistler, Marylena is a great girl! It is too bad it is so hard to break the cycle of misery if they first start getting hungry and tired at the same time. I hover over my pregnant sims, making them eat while they are still half full. A few extra pounds on the behind never hurt anyone, anyway!

Wow, Poor Marylena had a really rough pregnancy. Lucky you don't have InTeen she would have had a miscarriage for sure :( I like the makeover, she looks a lot like the Rihanna with that haircut (that's one from Nouk right?) Congrats on finishing Round 10! My favorite family is up next yay!

Actually it's Seomi, I think it's this one:

And she does look like Rihana! I hadn't noticed.

Good point about inTeen as well...I'll have to think about that.

I wish I could complain about too many boys! Both in Mattsmyra and Birka there are only girls, girls, girls.

I'm glad Marylena's pregnancy ended well!

Hey, it's Shannon from the Rosebud prosperity on my old skool LJ.

You seem to have sims that are terrible to maintain during pregnancy! I haven't yet had a sim with that much trouble, knock on wood.

Also, I wanted to say that I adore InTeen. The only thing I don't like is the ability for teens and adults to have romantic interactions, though it's nice when one half of a couple ages before the other. The fact that you can have the birth control/no birth control option is lovely though. And as for the miscarriages part, you can choose not to install that part. I have it, and it's not so bad, you just have to keep their hunger and comfort pretty high, I think? I forget whether it's hunger and comfort or hunger and energy. But regardless, it's pretty customizable. I recommend it! And I'm officially caught up on your blog! Woohoo! Look forward to the next installment.

Woo! Good job Shannon.

This pregnancy is actually a little worse than I normally get, but not much...thus I'm afraid of miscarriages, but it looks like they can be mostly eliminated with one of the flavor packs, so I may go ahead and give it a try.
