Narrated by Erin Fielding
Greg's for a few days so it's been incredibly quiet around here. I don't usually even bother to cook for myself, I just heat something in the oven. I guess I have to get used to this because Iona seems to enjoy spending time with her dad a lot and she likes Malia too.
Greg and Malia finally set the date for their wedding. They're gonna have a very low-key ceremony in the autumn with just their closest friends as guests.
Liv help me with my hairdo. She's the one who convinced me to dye my hair a bit darker and I think if she doesn't make it in the music business then she'd make an excellent hairstylist and makeup artist.
He's decided he wants to become a fire fighter. I'm happy for him but I'm also a bit worried because it's such a dangerous job. He's sent applications to the Wellington Fire Station as well as others but hasn't heard back from them yet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he gets a job that he really likes.
"Erin, being with you makes me happier than I could even imagine. I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life trying to make you happy. Will you marry me?"
"Oh mommy, that's so cool! Will he come to live with us always?" she said. I should've known that she would be ok with the engagement. She adores Toby and I think that she thinks it just natural that I'm getting married since Greg and Malia are tying the knot soon too. And the prospect of being the flower girl in two weddings isn't hurting either.

- Toby has had the want to engaged to Erin for a long time and now she rolled the want to marry him so I thought it's about time to get them engaged. They (or should I say I) haven't set a date for the wedding yet but it'll be some time next round. I'll probably move Toby in with Erin and Iona at some point before the wedding.
- Greg and Malia are getting married this autumn but since they are playable NPCs I'll handle the wedding the same way I handled their engagement: with an announcement in the Wellington Gazette.
- I'm hoping to get an office building done before next round so I could show Erin (and other lawyers) at work. I'm planning to build lots for all my careers but first on my to-do list is a makeover of the whole hood.
