Round 1: Picaso (Season 1: Fall)

Picaso Household:

Matthew Picaso: Popularity/Romance  |  LTW: Become Hall of Famer  |  First Wishes: Have a Party, Make a Friend, Flirt with Jessica (Picaso), Kill Jessica (Picaso)  |  Fulfilled First: Kiss Jessica

Jessica Picaso: Family/Romance  |  LTW: Reach Golden Anniversary  |  First Wishes: Have a Baby (Locked), Gain a Cooking Skill Point, Gain a Cleaning Skill Point, Kiss Matthew (Picaso)  |  Fulfilled First: Kiss Matthew


First a small note: Having both Jessica and Matthew get a secondary of Romance made me think this could be an interesting family.  I also had to look at my rule of Woohoo being locked in, or a requirement to fulfill.  I have decided that a wish to Woohoo, either in a certain place (like woohoo in bed) or with a specific person (woohoo with Jessica) will follow that rule, but a wish to woohoo with a certain amount of people will not.  My reason for this is, the wish to woohoo with 3 different sims for instance isn't a wish to woohoo specifically, it's just a wish to have done that with multiple partners.  So, that will not fall under the "must be completed" like other woohoo wishes.

So after kissing, both having Romance kicked in and they wanted to woohoo, which was quickly fulfill.  Jessica now wants to have a baby. 

With those wishes out of the way Matthew became a popularity sim and started wanted to meet new people and make friends.  So most pass by's got greeted.

The welcome wagon brought lots of new friends and made it very easy for Matthew to get his wishes in for the day.  Jessica was also fulfilling plenty of wishes.

The wishes, earlier in the season, are easy and fun to fulfill.

While the welcome wagon was still there an invite came in for the pair to go downtown.  According to our own rules we have to accept, so the group headed out.  They had a good time, but didn't stay too long.

Jessica wanted some skills and still wanted to have a baby.  The couple has certainly tried, but Risky hasn't kicked in it.

The couple threw many wishes for each other the first couple of days making wishes easy to fulfill.  They really do love each other, which is a nice change from some of our families who don't wish for each other at all.

Being a popularity sim Matthew always wanted friends and to throw parities. To help Jessica (who also wanted to meet people sometimes) would great most passerby's.

Then Jessica and Matthew wishes for the salon chair to give makeovers.  Then they both wanted bronze badges. Matthew's rolled away, but Jessica's stayed. So she started offering makeovers...mostly to townies.

We continued to have parties and Matthew was a breeze to keep happy.  On the other hand, Jessica turned into a Fortune sim and wanted to buy lots of stuff, and get badges in things.

Matthew loved making friends with all the female neighbors in the neighborhood.  He rolled woohoo with 3 different sims multiple times, but never wished anything for any one other than his wife specifically, so I'm glad I amended my rule.  If he wishes for someone else we'll have to see. :)

Matthew started bringing friends home from work, and continued to look for a job in the Athletic career, but wasn't having any luck.  On the other hand, he was thriving in the Military career.

More people were met and invited over and more parties were thrown.  Matthew really was a breeze.

A lot of food was served and once in awhile I would have Jessica make soup to keep everyone healthy and from getting sick.

During Matthew's days off he is able to greet the people passing by and reach some of his own wants.

Luckily Jessica remembers she is not a fortune sim and decided she wanted some skills.  Her husband was doing much better in their jobs then she was, so I think she wanted to "catch" him.

She still held out hope for that bronze badge however, so once we had some small wishes, or all the wishes out of the way she kept working on it.

Then all the socializing they had been doing took a turn and they were invited for another outing.  This time it was by Holly McArthur.  They decided the group would go bowling.

The entire group had a good time at the bowling alley and it ended up being a fun outing for all.

The couple is still trying for that elusive baby and Jessica has thrown thought bubbles of adoption recently.  I fear she is going to give up hope.

Her will is strong though, because she STILL really wants that bronze badge in make-overs.  So she keeps offering them to almost anyone who comes by.  She's actually really good at it, almost never messes up, even her first one was successful.

There are also still LOTS of parties thrown for Matthew, who wants one almost every day.

Finally Matthew found a job in Athletics right at the end of the season and was able to bring home friends from work there too.



Matthew Picaso: He was very easy the whole time.  A true pop sim who wanted friends and to meet new people all the time.  His romance secondary was plenty active, but almost always either generic wants, or wants with his wife so he reached his goals easily.
Ending Wishes: Have 3 Best Friends, Meet Someone New, Be BFF with Cynthia (Kim), Be BF with Robert (Kim)

Jessica Picaso: Started off so easy, and then the 3rd day she started rolling tough wants like badges, BFF's and threw buy me buy me wants.  She also had a few romantic secondary wants slip through, but all for her husband.  She still really wants a baby, but risky hasn't been nice so far.
Ending Wishes: Have a Baby (Locked in), Go on Mountain Vacation, Be Friends with Laura (Bear), Be BF with Marie (Rauscher)

Now to the table.  The family was VERY successful, and if Jessica had had a couple of non-badge or out of reach wants on Wednesday we could have been perfect.  Maybe next round. :)


  1. Jessica and Matthew (Mats in Swedish) had a girl during my play session, but it took some time there too!

    1. Yeah, I really hope they end up pregnant at some point. It will be a LONG time before we get back to these guys though. :)

  2. Matthew just came up on one of my lots as a bring home coworker. Heh My sim asked him out on a date and flirted with him, then he decided to rummage in the trash. hehehe! ~ASimWen

    1. LOL, that's funny. Matthew may have "fantasies" about being a bad boy, but he's pretty stinking devoted to Jessica in this incarnation. :) Maybe he's getting to fulfill those dreams with yours. :)

  3. The first time I played this couple they had twins. :D
    I quite like making Family sims secondary Romance- the conflicting wishes they get are quite funny. :D
    They are doing great with friend making, jobs and Jessica is doing good with her makeovers.

    1. These two are very successful so far. I really hope Risky will give them a baby next round, because they really want it. Thanks for coming by. :)

  4. Aww I want to see a little elf eared baby in this lot :)

    1. Thanks for coming an reading. I'm with you, I want to see a baby, but unless Risky deems it they will end up having to adopt.
