Platform Legacy 1.3

This update is admittedly crammed full of scenery shots, I just couldn't help myself! ^^;

With Bubba feeling secure in his family life, it was time to focus on his career. And, after long nights crunching the numbers, he made the life altering decision to pack everything up and pursue his dream job as a chef in Monte Vista.

They couldn't possibly live anywhere more beautiful...or anywhere more expensive. But Bubba knew if they could just rough it out over the next few years, they'd make it.

 And all Meridian really needed was her boys anyway.

Although she was quite annoyed with the household's complete lack of furnishings.
Meridian: Eating in the restroom is just disgusting... D<

Fist snow!!

Bubba: That's okay little guy, you'll be walking before you know it!
Am I seriously witnessing a tender moment between Bubba and Xander?? 

Meridian has a cold, which could only mean...

she's pregnant again.

Trust me, I don't want this either dear. How are you guys going to afford this thing?

I just love how this zombie stopped to admire the snowfall. :}

Meridian: I'm just going to have to work harder. Oh how am I even going to tell Bubba about this, it'll crush his dreams if we have to leave Monte Vista!
 Bubba: What's got you so lost in your thoughts? It's Snowflake Day! How about a kiss under the mistletoe with your dashing husband?
Meridian: Well a quiet moment with that husband of mine would be a nice relief from my thoughts. Come over here big fella! ;D *kisseyss*

Bubba: I'm sorry I couldn't afford to get you and Xander gifts this year, but I'll make up for it next Snowflake Day! I can just feel that big promotion looming and I can't wait to give you everything you've ever wanted, because you deserve the world Meridian.
Meridian: Just having you beside me is enough Bubba.
Bubba: I'll be there forever Meri, no matter what. 

Xander: Daddee, shnuggles!
Bubba: Anytime little man! Your daddy loves you kid. More than he could ever say.

These two have finally become best buddies. YAAAY!

Meridian was soon beginning to show and she knew she couldn't hide things from Bubba anymore.

Meridian: Okay look Bubs I don't know how to tell you this so I'm just going to have to come out and say it I'm pregnant and scared because we're so broke and I want more than anything to have you happy but I've looked at all the figures and there is just no way we can stay here any longer but you really shouldn't blame me because it was all your fault we woohooed in that igloo like five times in a row and I mean I know you don't want thi-

Bubba: Meridian, who said I didn't want this? This is really surprising, yes. And I may have to give up my dream of living here - but you should already know that our family, is and always will be, my ultimate dream. We'll get through this. 
Meridian: I'm so lucky to have you! I love you Bubba. And I really am sorry about all this...
Bubba: No, I'm sorry. Sorry that I've made you feel that this wouldn't be amazing news to me. Now let's just calm our nerves by another crazy round of woohoo, you game?
Meridian: Anytime.

The next day Bubba quit his beloved once-in-a-lifetime job and didn't feel one bit of regret as his family took the road away from Monte Vista.

Notes from Autumn;;
I really hope you guys liked this update, it was a little harder to write than the rest and I'm hoping it didn't come off all really long and boring. I'm actually getting ready to go into semihiatus mode because I'm moving. ;___; I'll probably be back sometime in March though - and hopefully with University Life screenshots!!


  1. Aww, I love the story line of the family making sacrifices for one another.

    How do you get pictures of the wants and other screen icons?

    1. These guys can be sickly cute when they want to be~ :3
      I use a program called Fraps [] to screencap my game and then edit those pictures. c: I've been using it for years now, so if you have any questions - feel free to ask me!

  2. Oh Monte Vista really does look great! I don't blame you for the scenery shots! It's sad that they have to move away, but it's for a great reason and it's good to know that Bubba is behind her!

    1. Your comments always make me smile Aeon! I'm sorry it took so long to reply back to this one, busy with the move and all. D:

      But yeah, I'm really disappointed that they couldn't afford to live in Monte Vista because it's so so gorgeous [one EA world I really don't regret buying] but seriously the family is hardly making enough to eat on at this point. ;______; I hope the situation changes soon!!

  3. Monte Vista is gorgeous, too bad they can't stay.
    Xander is adorable.

    1. I'm actually hoping they'll be able to save enough to eventually return, the setting was just so suited to their family.
      Xander looks so much like his mother, it's super cute! :3

  4. Awww I really enjoyed the Platforms brief time in Monte Vista. The scenery shots were stunning ♥

    1. Thank you!! I'm really not very good at landscape shots, but since I'd just purchased Monte Vista, I was fangirling all over the place and trying to take pictures of everything. XD
