How To Install The Sims™ 4 On A Mac {The Sims Series}

CB Twitter Party Post Disclosure June2014 TM e1403138292956 How To Install The Sims™ 4 On A Mac {The Sims Series}

In my house The Sims is the game to play. We all spend hours creating the perfect Sim, trying to make them look like each other and even building a house to look like ours. On more than one occasion I’ve been asked to do someone’s hair just like a Sim character! Since #TheSims4 has smarter Sims with even weirder stories, we HAD to have it!

Be sure to enter the SIMify yourself Facebook Contest here. There are $8000 in prizes to be won including the grand prize where you could win a trip to Maxis studio in California! See the official rules here.

In celebration of The Sims™ 4 Launch we even made these Plumbob S’mores:

Since we play a lot of video games, but since two of our computers are Macs, we figured out how to play PC games on a Mac, too!

The first thing you need to do is to Bootcamp your Mac. This isn’t some silly workaround. Apple actually has instructions for how to bootcamp your Mac on their website and the software is already installed on your computer. So you don’t need to worry about security and all that.

We bought a copy of The Sims™ 4 at Wal-Mart in their PC gaming section.

We were so excited to install, I barely even got a picture of it before it got ripped away from me! HAH!

Disney 3D Magical World Is So Much Fun!

Sometimes you play a game you enjoy, and sometimes you play a game you enjoy so much that you can’t put it down because it’s TOTALLY awesome and amazing in every way!

That’s Disney’s 3D Magical World for the Nintendo 3DS. This game is awesomely awesome. It reminds me a lot of Animal Crossing, but with a Disney theme. It starts out a lot the same way. You make friends with all sorts of NPC’s like Donald, and all your Disney faves, all while leveling up and having a blast.

Seriously, my daughter couldn’t put it down, but after she goes to bed, I totally play this game. (Don’t tell!)

She loves that you get to wear cool new outfits as you level up and that your friends reward you with them as you complete quests for them.

I love that there are quests. I think that’s the best part. It’s not just an open-ended game (although there’s plenty of that, especially for younger kiddos) but there are goals to accomplish and that’s what keeps this game fresh!

Now, if you will excuse me, My daughter and I have some more Magical World to play!

This game was sent to me for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Bake With Hallecake: Minecraft Lava Punch

You know, I am really proud of my daughter, Hallecake. I mean, yeah because she’s beautiful and awesome and smart and all that good stuff… but that’s not what I am proud of her for.

I am proud of her for starting her youtube channel and sticking with it. I help her out a lot– what with the editing and the uploading and the making sure she doesn’t read any terrible comments because I am her mom and I want to protect her and all that, but most of the ideas she comes up with are very much her own.

She had me guest star earlier this week and teach her “fans” how to make a rainbow loom Mickey Mouse bracelet. That was fun, and I will probably do it again because I think I’ve figured out how to make a Minecraft Creeper rainbow loom bracelet, so I think her “fans” will enjoy that one.

But this lava punch? It was entirely her idea. She knows what Minecraft lava looks like, and she knew what she wanted her Minecraft Lava Punch to taste like, so she came up with this video all on her own, and that makes me happy.
