On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

Warnings: bridezillas, mean girls, fire, nudity, pregnant drinking, disgruntled postal workers, and a stripper.
(because of Livejournal's weird enrty-size limits this update is in 2 parts. If you want to read it all in one group please see my Dreamwidth or Blog)

Day One

Moneywell022

Moneywell012

Meet Vivian Moneywell, town banker, resident hottie. Viv currently has nothing better to do than sit around and look pretty while she waits for Fitz Biltmore to build her bank.

Traits: Materialistic, Diva, Hopeless Romantic, Neat, Snob
Social Group: Socialite

Moneywell019

The only thing on Vivian's mind right now is her upcoming nuptials to Malcolm Landgraab, X, Oceanside's only politician and mayoral hopeful. This will be the wedding of the century not to mention the first wedding for Oceanside so Vivian wants to make sure everything is perfect.

Moneywell032

Viv has decided that her friend, artist Matisse Troubadour, will be her bridesmaid and seamstress Dawn Lambswool will make her dream gown and the rest of the party's outfits. Wanting to get a head start Viv calls up both girls for some wedding planning.

Moneywell033

...uh...OK...but you're on the phone now...

Moneywell034

Oh, yeah, you can come over. Don't you have a newborn or something to take care of?

Moneywell035

Oh hey Brodie Mason, town postal worker. Whatcha doing?
Brodie: I can help with the wedding planning. I'm very organized.
Nah we don't really need you, but thanks though.
Brodie: *mumbles and walks away*

Moneywell040

Dawn must be wearing Spanx or something because that 2nd phase of pregnancy isn't showing at all.

Moneywell054

Vivian is anxious to go over all of the details for her big day.
Vivian: I want my dress to look like it's made of whipped cream!
Dawn: Whipped cream. Sugary, fattening, and unsatisfying. Got it.
Glad to see you're both on the same page.

All is going well until...

Moneywell058

Another porch fire!

Moneywell066

Vivian valiantly tries to put it out...

Moneywell063

while Dawn bones out.
Dawn: Good luck with that!
Some help you are! You could at least jump around and scream like other sims do.

Moneywell069
Thank goodness Vivian can put out a fire by herself!

Moneywell070

The Welcome wagon still doesn't come even with all of my download re-organization and re-downloading.

Moneywell077

Fire extinguishing makes you stinky so Viv uses her outdoor shower.

Moneywell087

Oceanside's Next Top Model is...

Moneywell091

After the sudden departure of Dawn, Viv calls Matisse to see if she's available now to go over more wedding details.

Moneywell095

You're a pain in the ass Matisse Troubadour.

Moneywell098

Again!? I've never had two lightning fires in the same day!

Moneywell105

Once again Vivian saves the day!

Moneywell111

Ah, a bubble bath. You deserve it our little fire slayer!

Moneywell115

Famished, Vivian begins preparing the infamous lunch meat sandwich...lunch.

Moneywell120

OK... REALLY?!
Luckily this one washes out on it's own before Vivian can make it out there.

Moneywell134

Control freak Vivian is worried that nothing is going right today. She just wants the perfect wedding! I know what will cheer you up!

Moneywell137

Yeah buddy!

Moneywell140

OH COME THE FUCK ON!

Moneywell149

Good thing Malcolm shows up just as the fire washes itself out again. Vivian is thrilled to see her boo boo, to say the least.

Moneywell153

Vivian then installs the first lightning rod in Oceanside's history. Hopefully this will put an end to all this fiery porch from hell business.

Moneywell174

Malcolm and Vivian flirt, kiss, and suck face on the porch all the way into dusk without another lightning incident. Thank plumbob.

Moneywell187

Oh no! Here comes crazy Calista, get inside now!

Moneywell180

Moneywell183

Moneywell193

While Malcolm settles in for an episode of Mime vs. Cat, Vivian cooks mac and cheese for their dinner.

Moneywell198

Moneywell205

Even though she loves him, Vivian is still grossed out by Malcolm's eating habits.

Moneywell213

Matisse calls (finally) and the girls catch up on all of the wedding plans. Matisse is anxious to help and can't wait to share her ideas. She even enlisted the help of Selena Bossanova and Minka Yomoshoto. Viv feels a bit a relief now that she's not the only one working on the wedding.

Moneywell238

Now she can concentrate on other matters...

Moneywell248

Day Two

Moneywell007

Moneywell002

Vivian wakes up alone. Malcolm snuck out in the middle of the night.

Hey Viv, why don't you go clean up the mess you and Malcolm left in the kitchen?

Moneywell008

Vivian: Yes!
Really neat sims get on my nerves...

Moneywell010

Moneywell011

Vivian happily cleans the kitchen...

Moneywell021

recycles the paper...

Moneywell026

and makes herself fruit parfait for breakfast.

Moneywell038

Matisse calls to go over her thoughts for The Wedding of The Century.

Moneywell057

After going through the limited amount of places where they could have it, Matisse and Vivian come up with the idea to have Fitz build a courthouse/city hall just for Viv's wedding. Vivian loves the idea. She thinks she can trick Malcolm into funding it by convincing him that he needs his own workplace to govern the town as well as a place to hold the ceremony.

Moneywell061

Why so grumpy Brodie?
Brodie: If she would've let me help her I could've found a fabulous place for her wedding at no extra cost. I know all of the great hidden places around here. But noooo, no one cares about my ideas!
Right... because you're just an extra.

Moneywell063

Brodie: I'll show her who's just an extra!
Maybe we better watch out for the angry mail lady...

Moneywell072

Vivian wants to make sure she is in tip top shape in her frothy gown so she spends a few hours on the treadmill.

Moneywell069

Moneywell076

She did really well and didn't start to suck until the end.

Moneywell082

Moneywell083

~awesome~

Moneywell085

But not even the joy of working out can stop her from worrying that something was going to go wrong.

Moneywell095

This is when I realized I forgot to use her aspiration benefits to invest Oceanside's money. This is your only job Vivian - DO IT!

Moneywell098

Vivian decides to throw a party for her homegirls as a thank you for all of their help.

Moneywell096

Becca Goodacre wasn't invited because Vivian barely knows her and Sadie Winchester wasn't invited because, well, she's Sadie Winchester.

Moneywell099

Who's not showing up?

Moneywell104

Moneywell103

Minka! Even though she didn't accept the party invitation she happened to walked by so Vivian nabbed her. Stop trying to be anti-social, Minka!

Moneywell102

Viv breaks out the good nectar...

Moneywell113

and grills hot dogs for her guests.

Moneywell117

Dawn: ...and then she said she wanted pink slip-on heels to go with it!
Minka: I told you she was crazy.

Moneywell121

Moneywell129

Hot dogs are served!

Moneywell133

Selena: *BURP*

Moneywell141

Matisse: *Belch*

Moneywell147

Dawn: *chews loudly*

Moneywell151

Sorry Viv. Unfortunately you are not dealing with the classiest group of girls.

Moneywell169

After the belching contest, Vivian lights a fire on the beach and invites the girls over for dessert.

Moneywell179

S'mores for all!

Moneywell202

Soon it starts to rain and the ladies go off to do other things. Minka and Vivian have a chuckle on how gross the other girls' eating habits are.

Moneywell204

Yes Matisse and Selena, it's always a good idea to go hot tubbing in the rain...

Moneywell206

Minka: I hope you don't mind that I just raided your fridge for some chips?
No Minka, it's NOT OK.

Moneywell216

Minka: I give no fucks.

Moneywell218

Oh sure Dawn, you can just go right ahead and take a bath in Vivian's tub. What kind of heathens are these?

Moneywell220

HA! Well, at least it wasn't the porch this time.

Moneywell222

Even after being shocked, hungry, and stinky, a good time was had by all.

Moneywell224

I'm sure that will wash off Selena *tee hee*.

Moneywell2251

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!? PUT YOUR CLOTHES ON! (censored for your sanity)

Moneywell231

Vivian: This was the best. party. eva!
Yeah cause nothing says cool party like a naked pregnant lady.

Moneywell234

Update, yay! I even remember most of everything and everyone, though some eating habits I've just seen I'd rather forget. Ladies, please!
darkestdawn73darkestdawn73 on January 17th, 2014 05:09 pm (UTC)
Yes, poor Minka and Vivian have to deal with such uncouth friends!
braxenbraxen on May 5th, 2014 09:35 pm (UTC)
Zapping equals Roof Riser. :D It's impossible to let sims use the hot tub without getting zapped. It happened twice at a party held in one of my new beach houses.
And those outgoing sims who don't bother to put their clothes back on once they've hit the shower. Tsk tsk.
Dawn chewing - soo cute!! :D
darkestdawn73darkestdawn73 on May 6th, 2014 02:40 am (UTC)
Those hot tubs. Either the sims get zapped or they stay all night in them and never want to leave! Thank you for the comments ^.^
