The Liebster Award – Discover New Blogs

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Kymber from:

Kymber Writes

Please visit her blog and check out her legacy stories which are some of the best in the Sims community here in WordPress. I’m currently reading her 3rd Generation of Noble Doubt Legacy which is a Sims 3 Legacy Story and I LOVEEEE it. Needless to say, I highly recommend it.

**Thank you Kymber for the nomination, this means a great deal to me. Thank you!**

So what is the Liebster Award really? Well, in my own words is just the way bloggers/writers show our appreciation, love and support to those other bloggers/writers we enjoy and wish to see flourish more.

The rules are as follows:

  • Have a display of the Liebster Award in your blog post or in the side bar of your blog
  • Give thanks to the person who nominated you and include a link back to their blog
  • Respond with answers to the 11 questions you were asked
  • Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you love
  • Come up with 11 questions for your nominees
  • Let your chosen Liebster award noms know they’ve been nominated by providing them with a link to your blog post

The questions asked by Kymber & my answers:

  1. What food have you never eaten but would really like to try?

When I really think about this I can’t say I would REALLY like to try anything I haven’t eaten. I’m not adventurous at all, and I hate to try things that I would dislike so I don’t try. At the same time I was always told we don’t turn our face away from offered food. If I were to visit another country, I guess the decent thing to do is to try the food that is native to that culture. I would. And so, out of all the countries which food is very different from American I think I would love to try Korean food that has not been commercialized here in the western world. Like noodles with black beans.

2. What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of it?

Easy! “When Harry Met Sally”

3. What animal would be cutest if scaled down to the size of a cat?

Bears in general. I think the Red Panda is adorable.

4. What’s the most epic way you’ve seen someone quit or be fired?

I have not seen anyone quit or be fired, but I have heard stories. I guess the most epic way was a fellow coworker’s story of when he became a Union Steward and was asked to represent the laziest person in his facility, he said: “thank you but here is my steward certification. I quit.” – not very epic, but that’s all I have.

5. What makes you roll your eyes every time you hear it?

Anything coming from a sense of entitlement.

6. What invention doesn’t get a lot of love, but has greatly improved the world?

Aqueducts.

7. What mythical creature do you wish actually existed?

Dragons

8. If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?

Oh Gosh…. I have no idea.

To start, I would have to think of someone who has narrated amazing stories, because obviously I would want nothing but the best, but then I KNOW that my story would not be amazing, and so I’m left at the beginning, thinking of who could narrated my story?

9. What movie quotes do you use on a regular basis?

I wouldn’t say a regular basis, but I often say these quotes in my head and laugh at myself for it:

“I hear nothing. Not even a sound… just the beat of my own heart.” – “You’ve Got Mail”

 “‘The Godfather’ is the I Ching. ‘The Godfather’ is the sum of all wisdom. ‘The Godfather’ is the answer to any question. What should I pack for my summer vacation? ‘Leave the gun, take the cannoli.’ What day of the week is it? ‘Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday.’ ” – “You’ve Got Mail”

“Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal.” – “You’ve Got Mail”

“… an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.” – “You’ve Got Mail”

“You’re taking all the caviar? That caviar is a garnish!” – “You’ve Got Mail”

“…when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – “When Harry Met Sally.”

“…all men are sure it never happened to them and all women at one time or other have done it so you do the math.” – “When Harry Met Sally.”

“…men and women can’t be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.” – “When Harry Met Sally”

 “You take someone to the airport, its clearly the beginning of the relationship…” – “When Harry Met Sally”

10. What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?

Shoulder pads. I think that even though used as fashion statements, that’s all they are used for now a days. Back when I was young people actually wore shoulder pads and it was a cool thing.

11. Which protagonist from a book or movie would make the worst roommate?

I would have to think of movies or books I disliked and that’s hard for me as I block the story completely…. hmmm: Clary Fray…

~~I took one day to think really hard about whether to nominate or not, only because I don’t know many bloggers. The rules are to nominate 5 to 11. I don’t have even 3 to nominate, and so I came to the conclusion today that I would leave the nominations open to all! I nominate each one of you that is reading this and has a blog. ~~

My Questions to YOU:

  1. Which are your favorite books and why?
  2. If you could pick who you wanted to be in life, who would you pick?
  3. Favorite literary character?
  4. Do you prefer sunset or sunrise?
  5. Favorite film character?
  6. Do you think cursive writing should be taught in schools, or not?
  7. Are traditions important in life?
  8. Is the world a better place now than it was before?
  9. What one word would you use to describe the meaning of life as you know it?
  10. Has blogging changed your perspective in life?
  11. What have you learned that made the biggest impact in the way you see the world and all that live in it?
Now Im off to play blicblock… in the sims game.
Hahaha this face is epic sim face!! They just don’t want to be told what to DO!!!! – It’s okay Jade, I love you even when you hate me telling to you to get your butt to the computer so I can take some pics for this POST!

City Dweller – An Urban Contemporary Home (CC)

Hello friends!

This house took me literally two days to create, it would have probably taken less time if I wouldn’t have been distracted making a video of the built and editing the damn thing… today I gave up! Half of what I had edited just disappeared and I’m not here for that!!!

Okay… that was a bit of a rant there. Yes, I want to share the build processes and most likely I would make a channel for that but at the same time I don’t know if I should as I don’t plan to be doing that as a job, and it seems as though you either post every day or week, and if not you could pretty much forget it.

All that said, I have no clue of what to do yet so who cares right now??

Oh! Before we go right into looking at pretty pictures; this house I built for Ji-Sang from “Jensen and the Ghost of Jourdan” and it will be making its debut in the next chapter which I plan to upload this month. Hopefully sooner than later.

Now on to the PICS!!! YES!

La Paz – Flower Shop Country Home (CC)

Hello simmers!

It’s been perhaps a week or more and I have finally finished my next build which is the flower shop home I re-created in SIMS 4 for my story Jensen and The Ghost of Jourdan, but which I will also upload for all of you to enjoy if you are into the country life.

Bare with me before I show the pictures because I would like to tell a side story that relates to this lot:

The main idea for the style of this house came from my childhood and spending time at my grandparents which had a house that was old style but it was by no means a small house. It used to belong to a rich Spanish family in Cuba before the communist regime took power. The family went back to Spain and left the house to the maid which was my grandma who lived there with her husband and 5 children. Later, they ran a daycare business inside the house, and that is how my mother found them. They took a liking to me and made me part of the family which is why I called them grandparents. Now… all that said, I had a rich childhood in part thanks to them because I got to experience two different worlds at the same time; one being a conservative household, that ran a church and lived in a big old house with inside patio and lots of plants and flowers all around; my grandma also did some alterations in exchange for money and so they had an area dedicated to tailoring work; the other world was my household, my mother was an actress so she was more on the liberal side. And when I’m talking about conservative vs liberal, in now way is political, just the social aspect of it. In Cuba there is only one political view, that is communism.
This lot is made inspired by my grandmother, but in no way looks anything like the house she lived in. Is just the feel of the life style. My grandmother was from the country, so I did incorporate a lot of things in this lot that are found in country houses.

It features 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One bathroom is what they call half bathroom since it doesn’t have a shower or bathtub. The other bathroom is shared among the residents of this house. It is a huge bathroom though. The attic serves as a third bedroom because I added a bed there, but it can just be an attic if you please.

Everything has a very classical look to it and also shabby-chic.

Flower Shop Revamped?

Nah, is just SIMS 4!

After much deliberation as to what I would do with the flower shop house which is featured in the Jensen and Jourdan story and it was a big part of Chapter 1, I decided to remake the flower shop in SIMS 4 and be happy!!

Here is a sneak peek:

While I kept the overall style of the lot, and was super true to the original layout, I added a glass house and some other cute corners around the yard that will only enrich the lot more.

Happy weekend loves,

Becca
