Spirit Animal Award

spirit animal award

Thank you so much @persefona711  for nominating me. I am so honored.


I live in the Pacific Northwest USA about an hour south of Seattle, WA.

mount rainier pink too

My life outside of the sims revolves around my family.  I am married (to Bob Pancakes .. for reals) ..  he is a wonderful man!


I have 3 precious (grown) daughters (that I adore)


and 4 grandchildren that are my sunshine!


This is the little beasts in their natural habitat ..


I have a very naughty puppy …

hugs e and jez

I love to garden

and go to coffee 🙂


I am very active in my church


(I am the youth director .. and yes I love 13 year old boys LOL)

I love to travel and would wish to do even more .. and more .. and more 🙂


If I were a sim I would have these traits: Green thumb, geek, family orientated, natural cook and night owl.

My Snow White saga was not supposed to be a story.  She was one of the wacky characters in my insane asylum challenge.

I played it a bit differently than normal.  In mine they vied for their freedom by striving to complete their LTW.  I never expected Snow to win BUT she did.  I left her in Granite falls and went off to do 2 other challenges.

Slated to start a new one but not yet ready I decided to “stop” by and see how Snow was doing … and out of NOWHERE the story sprang to life (even tho I am very new blogger here I have been posting stories on FB for a few years).  I have tried to stop it at one but that was not met with favor LOL   I adore my Snow and Prince and have more adventures in mind for them than time to play them.

I yearn to do a couple of short stories but have not set them up yet.

I would be a Chihuahua .. they might be little but they have the brave heart of a lion and are an incredibly devoted little critter!  They can be a tiny bit naughty tho!

  4. Congrats, lisa! I’m in the Pacific Northwest too (southern Idaho) though my Dad moved to Kingston a few years ago. I’m going up there to visit for the first time this summer, we are going to the Mariners Labor Day weekend games together! ^_^

      1. Well, I’m actually in Mountain Time, not Pacific, only the panhandle of Idaho is in Pacific time. Though WA, OR, and ID are collectively the Pacific Northwest… I have a strong affinity for these states (was born in OR, raised and live in ID, have family currently in WA). Gorgeous area, with so much geographic diversity, too!

      2. Ha ha ha that’s true … My mind went to sleep. I always tell my family who lives in Michigan and Maryland that if you come out here I am two hours from everything you can imagine. Two hours from the mountains. Two hours from the ocean. Two hours from two major metropolitan areas. And only three hours plus or minus depending upon how you drive from the desert. This is a very unique place to live.

  5. Congratulations, Lisa! Also, thank you for the nomination! Glad that you’re enjoying Medicine Man Matt’s Medical Adventures! 🙂 I’ll find time to get back and get some chapters for him. Right now, life is busy.


  6. Congrats for the nomination (though I don’t know what ist but surely has something to do with SimsLit 🙂

Bob and Elisa Pancake are the only sims allowed to live on my saves, bevor “Get together” and they are still my favourite Maxis sims couple ;))

      1. I did by curiousity 🙂 I never reveal a lot of myself so seeing others are happy and florish makes my heart warm. I know a little about Bob Pancake and calling friendly your hubby like him makes me laugh.
