Everdale Prosperity Challenge Round 3: The Florez Family  
Previously, Jocelyn harvested some tomatoes from her garden, got promoted at work, and had a mediocre date with Kennedy Cox.

Time for more drastic measures.

I have Jocelyn call the matchmaker.

But she doesn't have a lot of spare cash and I want her to save for a nicer place, etc etc, so...let's see how this works.

This guy. I don't remember his name.

Oh and he's a criminal too. Fantastic.

Jocelyn doesn't find him too interesting.

And he's sorta annoying.

Let's see how he reacts to a bland tomato.

Yeah he's sorta offended by the bland tomato.

I sent Jocelyn downtown to find a man.

Ooo, found one.

Jocelyn warms up with some karaoke.

Then I send her to talk with the hottie. His name is Kamil.

He likes her too. Woo!

Jocelyn asks him on a date then and there.

They order matching food. Awww.

Jocelyn, you just met the guy. Do you think this is a good idea?

Told you.

The friendly hug at the end of the date also doesn't go well. Oh well.

Another promotion. Yay!

I think this is from the criminal.

The date with Kamil  wasn't great, but she really liked him, so I had her call him up and ask him out again.

That's a good start.

Yeah, stupid snow.

And then...


Kamil is turned on by vampires. That's too bad for him.

Kamil likes the bland tomato!

Date was a success!

In fact, Kamil calls her that night to go out again.

Awww, they're in love.

Jocelyn holds off on the public WooHoo and asks Kamil to come home with her.

Jocelyn had invited Kamil to stay over, but apparently he doesn't sleep.

So he stays up all night and catches fireflies.

I dunno that I'd want a jar of bugs in my kitchen, but I suppose it's a nice thought.

Make that two jars.

And there's jar three. Then he goes home.

This is Jocelyn's reaction. I have her go get rid of them all before work.

Another promotion for Jocelyn!

She brings home Jan. Considering they are both athletes, you'd think they'd be better at catch.

Jan is perplexed by the bland tomato.

Andrea comes by, so Jocelyn invites her to join her and Jan on an outing.

It was a nice evening.

Kamil brings a gift! What will it be???

A lamp. Great. I was hoping for a piano.

And lastly, Jocelyn gets yet another promotion!

It was a good round for Jocelyn. Three promotions and a nice new man.

It was indeed a good round for Jocelyn - and me too! I laughed so much at the bland tomato's. I never seem to give presents, but you've persuaded me to try it. Such a huge contrast in houses in your challenge - Jocelyn's is decorated, others are still without wallpaper. I enjoy reading your updates, and can't wait for the next!

I think I made a few strategic errors (like the Gables) in setting this up, so that some of the houses are in much better shape than others. Money is taking longer to accumulate than I remember!

I'm finding money too easy with Apartment Life. Random sims keep giving mine 'free samples' of products they're developing - I've had two soma wall tv's in one trip downtown - that's 16,000 simoleans! I hate it, because I feel it's somehow cheating - or maybe I just enjoy it more when the sims have to work at it.

So funny that Jocelyn keeps giving away her bland tomatoes!
She could cook them instead, but that wouldn't be funny...

Note to self: bland tomatoes = not great gifts, but definitely great entertainment.
