Year One- Meet the Edens! (or Honeymoon Baby: How to be favored by God)




Welcome to 66 Goodbook Avenue! Thanks to the power of Jesus the Sims 4 gallery, our newlywed fundie couple is able to use almost allll their money to move into this beautiful "3/2 Starter Home." A few modifications had to be made (like expanding the upstairs bathroom and demolishing a closed-door computer den...the horror) but now it is move-in ready for a young couple and any blessings the Lord may give them. 



And here's our fundie newlyweds. Meet Adam and Eva Eden. Adam's aspiration is have a successful lineage of quivers for the Lord, and he is self-assured, ambitious, and family-oriented. He is also an aspiring businessman for Hobby Lobby and has a very smackable face. Eva Eden's life dream is to have a large happy Christian family, and she is family-oriented, neat, and a music lover. They are both 20 years old and, even though they first spoke 8 months ago, are best friends and soooooooo in love (so much that I set the romantic decay to 20% of normal). They are also starting with a few skills thanks to their years at the SOTDRT (and sister-moming for Eva). Adam is level 2 in guitar, and level 3 in charisma, logic, writing, fitness, and handiness. Eva is level 2 in charisma, and level 3 in violin, logic, writing, cooking, and parenting (and I have also slowed skill acquisition rate 50% to account for longer lifespans). According to my timeline conversion, Adam and Eva have been married for 2 days in the picture below, and they already have the fundie stare down pat. Here, Eva gazes at her husband as he looks off into the distance (and bored). 


And they got right down to it (and hadn't bought a hamper yet oops)!


After sweet fellowship in Sims 4, one can take a pregnancy test to see if one's womb has been opened (also notice the hamper).


Eden may not sleep in a skirt but she is already expecting so take that haters!

The first year of marriage passes peacefully. Adam works his way up from mailroom technician to office assistant, plants fruits and vegetables, and works on his confidence and charisma. Eden cooks, cleans, and Manages Her Home happily. She even finds time to start a blog and publish her first major piece, "Honeymoon Baby - How to be favored by God," which brings in very modest grifting money. Here, Adam works on a speech while a pregnant Eva hand washes clothes on her knees. Hopefully someone will send her a love offering of a washing machine soon. 


But it is not all roses. Oh no! Eva was initially convicted to continue her maiden's work as a barista at her megachurch until the baby came (though the outfit required pants, the apron modestly covered any eye-traps). 5a7fa40dba5d5_02-10-18_12-07-10PM.thumb.png.4dc124420aa26f39814abb3f022a4492.png

But one day, Eva left in a rush and forgot to prepare Adam's breakfast. He had to procure cereal and juice on his own and he was Not. Pleased. At all. 


After this, Eva was convicted to quit her job and stay at home to be a better helpmeet. Eva also learned that her sister-mom cooking skills sadly did not extend to baking prowess. Fortunately the only things hurt were sugar cookies and her pride. 


All in all though, it was a great year. Eva labored lovingly at home (even while in actual labor) until at last...in the bathroom...blessing #1 arrived! Welcome to the world baby girl Genesis!!! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you! (But it's probably sister-moming. Lots of sister-moming)


And so, the Eden's head into their second year of marriage with a precious newborn and many more adventures (and blessings?) to come. Stay tuned!

      As someone who’s been on an extremely bland diet for almost a month now due to a medical issue, you never really know why someone might be eating a certain way (I mean, unless they tell you)!

      Not everything people criticise about Duggars in the forums is about a member's personal life. This seems to be the pattern these days. Duggar food is bland because they are bad cooks with no taste and refined palate, there is years of mediatized proof of that.

      PS: Derick's colour combination in that wedding photo is awful. Love Jill's dress.

      Just a couple things to add on the TWU discussion from before (since I almost went there.) 

      TWU is accredited and it offers a (small) number of accredited professional programs such as nursing and education that are accredited by the appropriate regulatory agencies. There's a lot of sketchy faith based pseudo accredited institutions out there but TWU isn't one. 

      I understand why the law program wasn't accredited/sanctioned. But I also don't get the whole fuss around it, these people will still apply to and (some will most certainly) get into other law schools. Sure it might deter some but it's not going to change the fact that there will be evangelicals pursuing law. And if they were steeped enough to want to go to TWU in the first place I'm not sure that going to a secular school is going to change that. I don't think it should have been accredited but I don't see this as a huge win for anyone. 

      I'm not sure how much sense that makes. It's late and I'm tired. But TWU was my first choice school for a while (so much so that I arranged and went on a tour) so I have some feelings on the topic.

      After seeing the first look at Josiah and Lauren's wedding, Lauren's dress is the new winner for me. It is modest, yet shows her shape beautifully. I wouldn't choose it for my own wedding (too plain and white), but it's beautiful on her. I wish she had done something different with her hair and her veil, as we lose so much beautiful back detail under all that hair, and the beading in the hair is hidden by the veil.

      So, 1) this is further proof that Raquel’s psyche is that of my 12 year old self’s hormone-laden delusional wishful thinking and obsessive thoughts and 2) is this her vague way of admitting the man who “loves her” and picked out her glasses hasn’t actually noticed she exists yet?

      Y'all are making me feel really old.  And like a bad mom.  My daughter had a bunch of the AG books when she was 6 or 7 years old, but I put off buying her a doll until she was a bit older and really wanted one... and then she never really wanted one.  So I guess that doesn't actually make me a bad mom, but still... LOL.  She just wasn't much of a doll kid, and once she started up with Harry Potter all of the AG interest vanished. 

      Totally fine, and they are not really worth the huge financial investment unless a kid is REALLY invested.  One who easily moves onto Harry Potter (excellent choice, might I add) doesn't need one or two years with an expensive AG doll.
