Narrated by Jack
I was glad when Jo finally found a jod. It seems to be hard finding one in show bizz, and when you do find one, they aks you to weat the weirdest outfits. She has been a commercial actress for some months before she got promoted, and it was kind of funny to see all the different outfits she was asked to wear.
She recently got promoted though, and now she's doing cartoon voices. I know she can't wait to get promoted again, because this really isn't what she wants to do, but in the mean time she's in front of the mirror practising her voices.
I got promoted as well, and I don't really like my current jog that much. I'm the event's coördinator's assistend, which basically means doing everything the coördinator doens't feel like doing. I won't get promoted any day soon, since they want my cooking to get better, and I practise a lot, but still manage to burn a lot of it.
In the mean time, married life is treating is pretty good. It's just the 2 of us for now, and to be honest we know we both want kids, but the topic hasn't come up yet. At the moment we're just enjoying each other.
Jo meets with Anna quite a lot in the park, and I know she loves haning out with her and the boys.
They're out for hours sometimes, just talking. I know Jo thinks Alex and Carl are growing up too fast, and that's one of the things that scare her a little bit about having kids of her own.
At the moment we both have such impossible hours though, that dinner is hardly ever served before 9PM,  and that's now something a kid would be happy with. So it might be wise to wait a little longer.
Or days of nights off are mostly filled with meeting up with family. I have 5 siblings, and I can't really meet all of them every week, but I do try to see Lawrence at least once a week, he's my twin and best friend.
Both Lawrence and I love bowling, so ussualy we go bowling at the Blue-o-Rama. We are both very competitive, wich sometimes makes it less fun for the others to play.
Meeting up with my parents also is something we try to do every week, they are the parents after all. As much as mom is a family-person, she loves going out for dinner. So whenever we meet they take us out.
I'm really glad both mom and dad like Jo. They can both be very stuborn, and I wouldn't want to be in the situation where neither of them disliked jo. They do keep asking us when their will be grandchildren, they would love to have more.
They really aren't the only ones asking these kind of things. Jo's mother keeps asking us as well, every time she comes by. Jo's dad however kind of feels he's too young to be a granddad and always changes the subject whenever it come up.
The nights Jo has to work, I'm at home alone most of the time. I like inviting Lawrence over on those nights. Last time he told me, he and Kenneth are looking into adopting. They already started the proces and intervies and all those things and hope to have kid soon. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for them, they will be great parents.
The nights we're both at home we sometimes just act like teens, but it's so much fun!

  • No kids yet here. Even though Jo already rolled the want and I locked it, Jack still hasn't rolled the want, so I let them wait a little bit longer. It wouldn't hurt my hood to cut back on babies, now would it?
  • I had fun taking them out to different lots and meeting up with the family. It's really fun to do. It's going to be harder to do when there's a kid running around.
  • Don't you just hate the outfit sims have to wear when they are commercial actors?? Sorry I just had to get it out of my system!
  • About Kenneth and Lawrence's adotion; they both rolled the want, so I decided to let them go on with it. Their adoption won't be for this round though, we'll see more about it next round!
  • I took new pictures of Jack and Jo for their profile, I'll try to get them up later today.


  1. The outfit I hate most, though, is the one the party clown has to wear. I hate clowns anyway, so whenever one of my Sims is in that career and has to wear the clown outfit, I make sure they get promoted as soon as possible!

    1. Ah yes the clos-outfit - that one might be a tad worse than this one :)
      I was glas Jo got promoted so soon, so I didn't have to see her in that silly outfit too long :)

      Thanks for reading!

  2. The commercial actor outfit is pretty silly! Makes for some good funny photos though.

    I'm so happy to hear Jo and Jack are doing so well. Jo especially is still so young, so I can see why they'd want to wait before they had kids. They have more than enough time.

    I can't wait to hear more about Kenneth and Lawrence's adoption! They'd be great dads.

    And ooh, where did you get Jo's dress? I haven't seen that!

    1. The outfit does make some good funny photos, I was glas Jo got promoted though and that I didn't have to see it anymore :)

      I think I will take them both off birth control next round and see where they're going, wether Jack rolls the want or not, I want babies from these 2! LOL!

      I'm pretty sure Lawrence and Kenneth will do great, we'll see more of them next round.

      Funny about Jo's outfit because I found it through one of the items you liked on Pinterest :) It from TxPrincessShan Sims:

      Thanks for reading!

    2. Thanks, Tanja! I'm going to pin it so I remember to download it. :)

    3. I'm glad I could help you for once, instead of you helping me all the time :)

  3. See, I'm the opposite, I love that career outfit, I think EA got it perfect when they did it. Just the other day I drove past a guy dressed as the Statue of Liberty, and got all excited that someday soonish Alice will get to wear that fry outfit! Eek! Can't wait!

    And I seriously thought, ohhh yes, these two are going to end up pregnant, so color me surprised that they didn't... yet! It is Simsville after all, no one can drink from that water too long before getting the baby bump. They are super cute together though, and I love that they are getting their careers in line before starting a family.

    1. Now that you mention it like that, that outfit might not be that bad after all, though I'm still not a huge fan, and I really don't like seeing my sims in it :)

      I have to admit I have been doubting wether or not I'd let them time matters in their own hands, but eventually decided against it, and made themwait untill next round, when they both are setteled in to their careers much more.

      Thanks for reading!

  4. I kind of like the career outfits, too - many of the sims I put in the actor career are ones I imagine as having a fairly high opinion of themselves, and its so funny to see them looking that silly :)

    I enjoyed this update, seeing all the family members. I bet you won't have any trouble getting babies from Jack and Jo, when you take them off birth control.

    1. The outfit might have some pluses, but I still don't like it that much, and I'm pretty happy when my sims get promoted :)

      I had fun doing this update as well, letting them meet all their family members!

      Thanks for reading!

  5. Jack and Johanna made a wise decision to wait until they are a little more stable to have kids. This way they will be prepared.

    I love that the try to spend as much time as possible with family.

    1. Sometimes my sims can be wise, unfortunatly not all the time :)

      Spending time with the family I "stole" from Sullivan, she's inspired me a lot with these kind of things.

      Thanks for reading!
