Rags to Riches: Tumulas Deosil Legacy

I started playing this wonderful challenge by Cyron43, some time ago,  Rags to Riches find it here.

I am too lazy to move all my pictures from my original thread to here so you can catch up @ Buttonsginger’s Rags to Riches  on TS3 CC II 

I am using Forever the 50’s Populated  by auntielynds and the members of TS3 CC

We will start with Week 15 Day 4

The maid told Tumulas  she hoped that a swarm of files engulfed her home after being fired! Nasty….

Not sure if Lucy likes her IF or not….lol!

Now let’s see how much better I can do after playing Hetty Lionheart and Tamara Phreeson (ISBI)……..I have learned a lot with those two challenges.

Tamra read to Lucy Sue.

Played for tips.

Signed an autograph.

Sedrick redid his room…..a vehicle enthusiast.  Yep…that is the Hover Bed…..everyone in the family unit loves it.

Wheeeeeeeeeee!

Yipes!  This happens often and makes me extremely nervous every time!

Grimmy gets around Hidden Springs often.

A bit on the creepy side if you ask me…….

Sedrick floating around town….where’s your vehicle, enthusiast??

Birthday girl! (Lucy Sue)

Still fun.

Mom does a little tutoring.

Carlo keeps up his martial arts training .

First day of  school for the twins.

Creepy Field trip….each received a painting type thing to hang on the wall….gee whiz….thanks a bunch….wouldn’t want to forget the trip to Shady Pines Historical Cemetery.

Yum! Dirty counter….I mean…..Key Lime Pie…..bet that has an extra zingy taste……ewwwwwww!

“And they lived happily ever after…..now go to sleep.”

The girls aren’t feeling so well…..must be a bug going around…..yhea…..it’s called Key Lime  Dirty Counter Pie!

“I am sorry….do you think I wanted to make everyone sick??? ”

Must master logic skill before completing elementary school…..ambitious for sure!

“Hey…..I’m ambitious too…..you secrete the growth hormone while you sleep, you know…..that’s my story and I am sticking to it!”

Bought the Extra Creative LTR….pretty cool.

Stuck-o-rama…..poor Gogi….he’s too old for this kinda stuff.

A little tutoring before school….jez Mom!

“Ha…..let’s just see who masters logic first…….”(sticks tongue out).

“Would it kill someone to lift the lid and do a little cleaning around here!”

“Get that leg up higher!”

” And the very smart Princess did not start dating until she turned a Young Adult…..now go to sleep, sis.”

” And the very smart Princess did not start dating until she turned a Young Adult…..now go to sleep, sissy.”

Still in love……

Thanks so much for reading! 😀

Hetty Lionheart: Goals Met!! Week 10 Day 5 (12:40 pm)

We find our group on a night out on the town…..

Here are the pics from the photo booth ….funny!

Jean starts fulling his LTW of Golden Fingers/Golden Tongue.

Youssef  tried out the Ghost Potion…..Oh My!  Don’t worry, it only lasted for a few hours.

Awwwww….trying out the couch….sweet bug dreams minion!

Hetty is expecting 😀  Why is the bed outside?  Funny you should ask…..The Lionhearts have the super sleeper beds (with no whoo hoo/try for baby options) and the showers tell them they do not have a sim on the lot they can whoo hoo with even though they are married…….so time for a little fresh air……

A  massage …..how thoughtful!

Boil the water!

A whole lot of yelling….name calling….

The arrival of Felicia Lionheart was a blessed one…..who would of thought this  sim would EVER have a baby when this challenge started!?!  Traits: Evil (of course) and Disciplined.  Favs:  Rock a billy/Key Lime Pie/Red. Sign: Sagittarius.

Time to work off the extra baby weight!

Hetty works on her charisma skill……

Felicia aged up to a toddler…..after 2 sim days. 😀

Hetty shows off her post-baby body….now we are reminded this is a game….lol!

Potty training…..what a good girl!

Look who has learned how to walk!

and talk!

How cute is this…..

Getting ready for the Masters……Jean wants a Green Jacket!

Ouch…..is a minion jealous of Felicia?

Fancy fishing…..a perfect red herring …

Cuddle time!

Read 20 minutes a day with your child!

Hetty caught  Youssef  flirting with the maid……It couldn’t possibly be  my pet’s fault ( even though he has the flirty trait)……

First…..kiss and make up!

Second: “Look….I like you and all….but I am gonna have to have you terminated…..Ummmmm…..literally. Nothing personal, sweety.”  Mwuhaaaaaaaaaaaa….Hwaaaaaaaaaaa…..Hwaaaaaaaaaaa…… ( You didn’t forget Hetty was evil, did ya??)

Let’s try a Butler….another female?  Could be trouble….better get Knuckles on standby…..

More Reading to Felicia.

Well, that didn’t last long…..even gave her spanking new butler’s quarters…..ungrateful minion!

20 friends for Hetty!! ( Dances around the room)

Works on logic skill……must master…..must master……

New butler….another female minion! Well, she can make lobster…. YOUSSEF……

” I am here my pet, reading to our daughter……”

Eureka!    Hetty has mastered the logic skill!!

Hetty Lionheart has finished  MerryWiddows’ challenge!  What fun this has been!!!  I hope more of you give this a try.

Hetty Lionheart: Week 7 Day 6/All Caught up!

The days are ticking away and Hetty  feels Grimmy breathing down her back…..no worries……she’ll just whoop his tuchis….although she’d rather just drink the potion.

Mwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  Hwaaaaaaaaaaaaa  Hwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!  Bow to your Queen minions!!!!

Now Hetty glows a lovely shade of red….isn’t that attractive…..the down side might be that most sims boo and give her the thumbs down…..of  course, Hetty cackles with glee when this happens…..that ‘s why we love her!

What to purchase with her LTR points……hmmmmmmmm…….let’s think on it shall we.

Youssef congratulates Hetty on her Emperorness.

A peek inside the Super Sleeper…..ummmm….your Royalness…..you forgot to take off your makeup!

Pickles is now an elder.

“Why, thank you my pet…..you know just what I love to hear!” Purrrrrrrs Hetty.

Eureka!! Youssef has discovered the Young Again Potion…..see how proud he looks of himself….as he should.  Mastering the logic skill was necessary.  Bravo!   Hetty wastes no time and downs it……

Well now…..isn’t she pretty….nice Empress of Evil work outfit…..let’s take a looksee in the dresser shall we….

Here are the outfits Hetty aged back  wearing…..lol!

Here are some of her new outfits…..much better, I think.

Here is another Everyday outfit….not athletic….Hetty your a hoot!

Meet Jean….a simbot!  How perfect for a LTR…..Hetty has her very own new best friend…..although every time Hetty walks into a room where Jean is ……Hetty runs from the room with  the  social “A Simbot!” …….who knew the Empress of Evil had a fear.Shhhhhhhhhhhh!

“Hello?” says Youssef .  ” Affirmative” says Jean.  “HETTY…….”says Youssef.

Jean is a male Simbot.  He is Brave, Can’t stant art, Hydrophobic, a Hopeless Romantic and a Heavy Sleeper.  Has the sign of Libra.  Favorites are Songwriter, Stir-Fry and Sea Foam. Has the LTW  of Golden Tongue, Golden Fingers.

Interesting….

He loves to collect scrap.

Inventing…

Finds the coffeemaker intellectually stimulating.

Appears to be in love with the microwave!

Hetty heads back to work after aging back to young adult……..wonder if her subjects will recognize her?

Youssef  keeps busy reading the fishing books.

Jean tries to make friends with the fur balls.

All caught up!

Hetty Lionheart Week 7 Day 6 continued……

Welcome home Birdie… I am sure my minions will love you as much as I do!

Who’s in charge here???

Your fearless narrator  was otherwise distracted and one of  Mama’s minions ate the birdie……along comes Hetty….

I am not kidding you……Hetty looked up at the screen….my laptop screen…. and told me it couldn’t possibly be the fault of  her minions….they are only cats…..I’d better do a better job or I will meet  Birdie’s fate!

So, I checked on the health of the shrew…..it is fine….whew…..

Pickles had a wish to eat a fish…..( hehehe….rhymes) so here you go…..enjoy!

Here we go around the flea merry-go round….. (curse you EA programer who thought this was funny!)

Time to get that thumb green!

Hetty heard a rumor that there is an incense burner that speeds up your skill learning…..so off to China we go!

Yummmmmmmmm…egg rolls….Hetty maybe insane but she knows what is good to eat! ( now I am hungry)

Another peaceful night in China…..

The next day we work on her athletic skill

Martial Arts training.

Consoled a good friend.

Charisma  skill increases.

Jabbers to self….charming!

Hurmph…..why do catacombs always have deep pools and some type of fire trap…Hetty shrugs to self.

I am not sure whether it was Hetty’s body odor of her insane trait that freaked this poor sim out.

Did a bit of sparing….

Photo Opt…..maybe she’ll get a deodorant commercial out of it…..

Would you look at that!  Hetty wants to learn that trick!

Grabbed a book and read until the swoosh arrived…..Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…..

Lookie what the kitties got ….I must admit Hetty pilfered it from “buydebug” 😀

 

Mama got herself a new bed……super sleep!

Got a promotion and bought  a telescope…..logic skill now needed.

Evil of course!

Mwaaaaaaaaaa  Hwaaaaaaaaaaaa   Hwaaaaaaaaa……Hetty is boiling the water now.

The alarm woke Hetty….she ran to the front of the house….when will these 2-bit thieves ever learn…..although Hetty couldn’t help cheer when her comrade  whipped  the local officer’s behind!

Another opportunity to go to Egypt… Hetty hopes Youssef is still  available.

Looooooooking Goooooooooood!

Hetty wasted  no time in proposing!

I do!  I do too!  How romantic.

Back to base camp…..let’s get the honeymoon started.

The objective is to disarm traps…….

Hetty found a potty….along with a keystone.

Hetty inserts the keystone while Yousseff admires his wedding ring.

” Wait Kitten…..the sign said to go in the purple one….!” shouted Youssef.   “So it did , my pet” purred Hetty.

“Remember how to get back here my sweet….it seems important. ”  Which one said this???  I am not sure.

Team work!

The next day Hetty accepted a challenge to disarm traps in a local basement…..it did not start off well…..

Youssef did not escape the wrath of the basement…

Not again!

Our leader passed out….don’t let word get back to the boss……

Back at base camp Youssef caught Hetty rummaging in the trash….he wasn’t too happy….what other secrets does she have????

Back home Hetty tried to check in with her contact…..it seemed she was stuck and burning!

Hetty found her all safe and snug at her home….made contact.

Now that is hunky pose , if I ever saw one….Hetty agrees.

Youssef wastes no time in discovering potions…..he must make the one that will make his love a young adult again.

Oh……he sings while he fishes….now that is impressive!

Hetty practiced  her domination of the world speech in her newly decorated  bathroom…..Youseff did the redecorating.

Hetty reads her book for work while her devoted husband works towards her new youth….he is much better than a cat…..don’t repeat that to the minions!

Youssef wrote the thank you notes.

Weeeeeeee…….no more fleas!

still not caught all the way up yet.

 

Hetty Lionheart: Week 7 Day 6

 Hetty got a call with another opportunity to travel  to Egypt…..off we go….Meow!

An interesting choice for Hetty’s travel attire!

Works a bit on the Charisma skill.

Took a little time out to harass the world.

 Well, lookie here….Hetty has met herself a sweetheart and he is handsome….and NOT and elder!

 A little fun…..

Oooooooo…more fun!

Things are definitely looking up!

Excuse our rudeness, let us introduce: Youssef ….ermmmmm….let just call him….sexy pants…Youssef Sexypants….there you go….he is flirty and friendly.

Time for a little relic hunting! Insert  keystone…..MEOW!

I hope Youssef doesn’t mind “Cat-like” behavior!

What fun…..a mime!  Applause…tip!

 

A little skill boosting at Youssef ‘s home.

Hetty worked her self to exhaustion ….a good excuse to join sexypants in bed.

Increasing her athletic skill….nice outfit!

Making friends.

More jogging….sand is much cooler on the tootsies at night.

 

Awwwwww…..a birdy…..come to Mama….smoochie!  (Tastes like chicken…..Muawwwwww Hwaaaaa Hwaaaa)

Jogging above the sand is harder than it looks.

All this sand makes one’s posterior itchy!

Oooooooooooooo…..a goodie!  Oh, and there is shiny gold thingy too!

What?  How was I suppose to know you were sleeping in there! See ya ….

Good thing  “Old Smelly Bandages”  was disoriented…..Hetty escaped!

Eeeeeegads!  Is this the end??

 Ha! Hetty escaped….although something smells like burnt mummy……

Okay….burnt Hetty!

Nothing a little good night’s sleep wouldn’t cure…..who did I say we were  calling “Sexypants”???

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr……..for no particular reason.

Again with the fire traps????

A little dipsy-do  to cool off and find a switch or something ….

Jackpot!

Hetty senses something is up….the stench and feeling of hot breath on the back of her neck is a dead give away!

Is this the end??

Take that you big oaf! Nobody messes with Hetty Lionheart!!

Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle…. “Bandage Breath” turned into dust!

Hetty collected  B.B.’s ashes….peeeeee ewwwwwww….he still stinks!

Just had enough time to call Youssef   and nab a book from the bookshelf before being swooshied  back  home.

 

 

This is about a third of the way to week 7 Day 6…..stay tuned….more fun to come!

They are coming to take me away…Week 16 Day 8…all caught up.

“Hello……Hello…..hmmmmmm….nobody there” Tamra hung up the phone.  ( The poor dear is dead on her feet…..I didn’t have the heart to tell her the phone was up her nose.)

So cute……I can’t stand it…..really……I can’t!

Sedrick is really trying to pitch in and help.   Come on…..do some spontaneous Genie magic already!

Come on girls ….build those skills so we can have any early aging up party……..

Tamra did have to finally go to a gig and look how the babysitter showed up…..maybe he is trying to break in the business…..

Tamra’s gig was a private party….she made $ 11,000.00 simoleons!

Signed a few autographs and sold a few albums after the gig…..Tamra is not at all sure why this fan was laughing….but Tamra was laughing at her swim fins!

Gogi has the wish that someone will tell Sedrick that  fetch is played …..OUTSIDE…..not in the master bedroom.

“I’ll tell ’em Gogi…..as soon as I can talk! ”  How do you like Lucy Sue’s new hair doo??  I think it is darling!

Potty training….so sweet my teeth hurt!

Learning to talk…..once they start, they never stop ….you know.

Look at that child…..who is Daddy’s girl???

That’s correct Lucy….what a smart girl you are.   Tamra loves these girls to pieces.

Ahhhhh…..food…..Tamra is glad to have some inside her instead of  on her……

This baby grand piano was a gift from the company that makes them…..now that’s what I call a perk!

Our couple actually had a little time for romance…..the Wooo hooo social actually came up and  by the time they got to the bed….Gogi was asleep on it…..”Wake up Gogi….shoo….”  and just as Tamra’s side of the bed was free….two little angels started crying…..oh well, who has the energy anyway!

 Come to Mama.

Take a big step sweetie….that’s it.  ” Get the camera Carlo…..okay  Sedrick….anybody…….”

You’ve got to be kidding….

Now that the girls have learned all they can from the xylophone and blocks, they were given their  Imaginary Friends.

Gogi is asleep on the bed again……so what’s a couple to do?  That’s right….spar!!

Sedrick loves to cook and work out……guess that is a good combination.

Story time…….. actually, skill time but don’t tell the girls.

Katy Perry ( by EA itself)  dropped in for a performance….babbylegs1970 sent her on tour to Hidden Springs…..it was a great act!

Tamra sang a little Karaoke before heading home.
