Chapter 0.2: Every occasion calls for Pearls

Harwood 0.2Title

Welcome Back! Last time Pearl was struggling to find that special someone in her life, get a promotion, and find a place to pee that wasn’t a bush. Lets see what other escapades Pearl can get into.

08-07-16_1-17-09 PMPearl goes to The Lounge in Oasis Springs to work on her daily task for her job.

Lady at the Microphone: “Uh…hey…do you mind I’m trying to do a routine here!”

Pearl: ” Oh…I’m just giving your routine a lovely musical accompaniment.”

Lady: “You.Are. Stealing. My. Stage. Time.!”

Pearl: ” Sharing is caring. I’m only thinking of you.”

After completing her daily task and quite possibly making an enemy Pearl heads to the Gym for a game Legacy sims like to call Spouse Hunting.

Pearl: “Oh hey there! Nice tats.”

Don:” Nice towel”

Don and Pearl did chat for a bit however he takes off to go get a shower.

08-07-16_3-02-04 PM

Next Pearl meets Ulysses and Paolo. Pearl and Paolo hit it off and soon are ignoring Ulysses all together.

Pearl: “Wow you’re a Music Lover! I’m Creative; that’s kind of the same thing right!?”

Paolo: “Um…sure…why not.” *stares intently at Pearls towel*


Pearl: “Hey Paolo I think our two similar but different traits deserves a hip bump! What do you say?”

Paolo: “I can totally get down with that. But then after we do that I have to jet.”

And so Paolo, as with every other male sim Pearl gets along with, leaves to go do what ever Bro’s go to do. Yep Pearl learns that Paolo is a Bro as well as a Music Lover.

So after meeting two potential spouses that: a) didn’t hate children, and b) actually wanted to hang out with her (even if for a little bit) I had Pearl go collect more items to sell because she is still broke. And then she wanted to view a painting at the museum so I thought “why the hell not?”

08-07-16_3-25-00 PM

So later that same day Peal decides to invite Don and Paolo over to get to know them a bit better.

Pearl: “Oh hey you guys! Are you two twins or something because you’re practically wearing the same thing, both have tattoos, and both of you are active. So what gives?”

Paolo: “I’m not sure I like the comparison between an awesome bro like myself and a serial romantic.”

After a having a little chat with Don Pearl finds out that Don is Non-Committal and pretty much ignores him in favor of Paolo.

Don: “Hey what am I? Chopped liver?”

Don: “Um…hello! Earth to Paolo and Pearl!”

08-07-16_3-36-15 PM

Don: “Really! You two are exchanging numbers now!”

Don is side glaring at Paolo so hard. I found it quite amusing.

Needless to say Don was not amused and soon after this picture was taken he left without so much as a goodbye.

The next day was Pearl’s day off so she invited Paolo to the park for a date. They hit it off immediately and I cannot get over how stink’in adorable these two are. Even their names go together: Pearl and Paolo.

08-07-16_3-58-22 PM

Pearl: “Paolo I know we only met yesterday, but we are just perfect together! I mean all of our traits compliment each other to the nth degree. Your Active trait to my Loves the Outdoors trait. My Creative trait to your Music lover trait. Your Bro to my Cheerful!

“What I’m trying to say is: Will you be my boyfriend?”

Paolo: “I couldn’t agree more! I’m totally into you babe.”

Pearl: *squeeeee!*

08-07-16_3-59-43 PM

Pearl: “Oh I’m so glad you said yes because what I really want to know is will you spend your life with me?!”

Paolo: ” Why the heck not?! Yes!”

*Please ignore the plumbob in the picture.*

Just more unmitigated adorableness from these two. Can’t. Take. The. Cute!


I decided to have them get married right then and there because lets face it this is the founding generation so there is not any money to spend on a proper wedding and more importantly because I can! *Muhahahahh* Uhem please excuse the evil laughter.

Anyway, Paolo had to go to work after the wedding so Pearl was left to do some more collecting and gardening. I believe at this point she is a level 2 in the gardening skill. I fear her aspiration is going to take me forever to complete.

Between what collectibles Pearl was able to sell and what Paolo brought home form work I was able to get the couple a decent double bed, a sink, mirror, and a toilet.

So without further delay lets introduce Paolo into the Harwood Legacy!


So Paolo came into this family with a job in the athletic career. And I like most of his wardrobe I just changed some clothes in his every day because I though he was dressed too much like Don Lothario.

08-07-16_6-03-23 PM

When Paolo gets home from work the couple is able to celebrate their marriage. Unfortunately this does not result in a pregnancy.

08-07-16_6-13-05 PM

Paolo: “That’s alright man. It only means we can keep trying; and trying is the fun part!”

I just love this picture. He was sitting so causally seemly looking in my direction with an expression on his face that seemed to say “Hey, what’s up? You want to talk about it?”

I send Paolo to the gym to work on his daily task for work as well as his aspiration. He’s there for like 2 hours and already completes “work out for 8 hours” part of his aspiration so the game must have counted the time he spent working out towards his aspiration  before he moved in with Pearl. Plus hes working out a the gym so he just completed the first tier of his aspiration!

Also Bro hugs with J Huntington the 3rd. Who I think is wearing exactly the same shirt as Don Lothario. Is this some sort of commentary on active male sims?

08-07-16_6-47-21 PM

So for the second tier of his aspiration he has to reach level 4 of the athletics skill;which he has already completed, Own 2 pieces of workout equipment; I bought two punching bags and sold one, so that is also completed. Now the only thing that is left is to Push the limits for 1 hour while energized. That’s easy enough!

08-07-16_7-05-03 PM

Pearl has been focusing more on her job than her aspiration. So I am seriously considering changing her to the science branch, but she is so close to a promotion that I think I will wait until she gets it before changing careers.

Pearl is working on her Gardening skill. I think she just reached level 3 here.

Paolo: “Babe you are so workin’ it right now!”

Paolo autonomously came over to flirt with his wife ❤

Paolo: “Hey babe you wanna do it…I wanna do it, so let’s get this party started!”

Pearl: “Honey if you weren’t so mouth watering to look at I would find issue with your lack of romance.”

Paolo: “Oh come on you know you love it when I talk dirty.”

And we have success! Pearl is pregnant. I just missed all the confetti.

08-07-16_9-25-43 PM

Pearl: “Hey honey…guess..what?! I think you’re going to be super psyched about this news!”

08-07-16_9-25-55 PM

Paolo looks super nervous.

Paolo: “Uh..what is is honey?”

Pearl: “We’re going to be parents! Isn’t that the greatest news!”

08-07-16_9-26-06 PMPaolo: “What! I mean we still live on a lawn…and…and we just managed to afford to put four walls around our bathroom. And the bills are coming soon! Are you sure?!”

Pearl: “100 %!”

Paolo: “Oh…okay…well I think I’m going to take a nap now…” *mumbles to himself on how utterly broke they are and his wife is way too cheerful about this.*

08-07-16_9-26-54 PMI just love this picture. Paolo is going down for a nap but it looks like he and Pearl are having a good laugh about the situation they are in.

Pearl decided to join the Gardening Gnomes club to boost her gardening skill, however there was no gardening to be done at Hare Park so she and her club members spent their time fishing.

Back on the ranch the Harwoods were finally able to afford a counter so they can make salads. However Pearl ends up chopping her fingers instead, but looks way to happy that she did. Also first broken toilet, or first broken any thing for that matter, of the legacy.

Paolo: *whispers* “Don’t tell my wife this…but I think her fruit salad is terrible.”

That’s probably because she bleed into know from cutting her fingers.

Paolo:”I think I’m gonna be sick.”

08-09-16_7-01-31 PM

Paolo has now finished level 3 of his aspiration. He also is at his Maximum body potential so now all he has to do is get to level 10 of athletics, at the moment he is level 7. I think Paolo is going to be my first sim to complete his aspiration before he becomes an adult!

08-09-16_7-04-34 PMPaolo: “Hey sexy get over here for some sugar!”

Autonomous kissing is ❤

Pearl invited the Garden Gnomes over to  help her out with her garden. And afterwards Bjorn Bjergsen thought it a great idea to rummage though their trash bin.

Pearl: “Find what ever it is you’re looking for Bjorn?”

Bjorn: “Nope. Man you have a lot of trash in here.”

Pearl: “Well…that is were trash goes…in the trash can.”

Bjorn: *gasp* “Shut your mouth! There be treasure in here….well except your trash can.”

08-09-16_7-24-28 PM

Look how super cute Paolo looks in his Mascot Uniform! Paolo is of course at level 3 in the Athletic career. Also at this point Pearl is level 2 in the Entertainer career.

Pearl has finished the part of evolving 5 plants now she just has to reach level 4 gardening. Why is this taking me so long! Also I broke down and got Pearl an Easel. I figured it will pay me back shortly.

Pearl: “Okay…what is this?”

A moodlet solver. It will make you feel oh so good!

Pearl: “Should it be exploding like that?”

Of course that’s how how you know it works.

Pearl: “Well if this harms the baby I’m going to come after you with razor blades.K!?”


These two just being super adorable again.

08-09-16_8-22-49 PMSo I heard that pregnant sims can’t get electrocuted or set on fire. So I had Pearl fix the fridge. Plus she has a higher handy skill than Paolo does. Also I was able to get a guitar. Also Pearl was promoted to C-Lister.

08-09-16_8-39-49 PM

Pearl: “Hey I’m back from work already cuz apparently you can’t give birth at work so…”

08-09-16_8-44-04 PMPaolo: “Bey Bae guess who got promoted at work today…that’s right yours truly! Dance Team Captain all the way!”

Pearl :”That’s nice dear, I’m in labor by the way.”

Paolo: “Oh…cool, cool”

08-09-16_8-44-43 PMPaolo did not even panic that his wife was in labor; in fact I don’t think he even noticed she was in labor. He just drank his moodlet solver and went about his business.

Pearl: “This is a little disconcerting.”

08-09-16_8-51-57 PMPearl: “Hey honey I’m about to push!”

Paolo: “That’s great! I’m just leveling up my charisma. It’s so nice to be able to share these moments with you.”

08-09-16_8-53-50 PMWith Paolo not even looking away from his mirror even once he missed his son being born. That’s right we have a boy! His name is Malachite and…wait…what’s this…

08-09-16_8-54-24 PMAnother bassinet? Yep we have twins people! Everyone meet baby girl Garnet!

08-09-16_9-04-06 PMNot even a sim hour goes by before Pearl is makin’ moves on her hubby.

Pearl: “I know I just gave birth but I’m feelin’ some sexy time coming on! What do ya say Paolo?”

Paolo: “I never pass up sexy time.”

08-09-16_9-11-24 PMPaolo: “Hey Bebe we are so killin it as parents!”

Pearl: “Yeah I think we got this down!”

08-09-16_9-23-51 PMI see the confetti flying’ and I look over to see Paolo’s face having an Oh s*@t moment.

Pearl:”Honey guess what? We’re Pregnant!”

08-09-16_9-24-34 PMJust the look of utter uncertainty on his fave had me cracking up!

Paolo: “But the twins aren’t even a day old!”

Pearl: “I know but we are only having three and I want them to be of a similar age.”

Paolo: “Okay if you say so…”

08-09-16_9-56-51 PMPaolo: “Um…Bjorn do you mind. I’m trying to have some bonding time with my daughter. And you’re kind of in my bubble space.”

Bjorn: “But I thought we were bonding.”

Paolo: “Um…not so much…no”

08-09-16_10-41-10 PMPearl here just reached level 4 in the gardening skill. FINALLY! Which completes the second tier of her aspiration. We are half way there you guys!

08-09-16_10-57-02 PMNot much else happens and soon it’s the twins birthday. And of course my stupid computer was lagging so I didn’t get a picture of their transformation. Off to the mirror you two!

Mal-Traits ChildMal here is creative like his mom and a whiz kid. Oh and the naming theme for this generation is precious gems.I think he is a really good combination of his parents.

Garnet-traits childThe’re twinsies in their traits as well! However Garnet is a Social Butterfly. Both Mal and Garnet have their dad’s brown hair and their mom’s eye color. I think they both have their dad’s eye shape however Garnet’s eyes are wider like her moms. Anyway I’m super happy with how they have turned out so far and can’t wait to see what shenanigans they get into!

08-09-16_11-29-57 PMBefore I end this chapter I leave you with Mal playing on his phone. It was his very first autonomous action after getting a makeover. Garnet went to sleep in her parents bed.

Will the Harwoods be lawn living forever? Will Pearl’s next baby be a boy or a girl…or will she have another set of twins? Only one way to find out so stay tuned.
