Lilycott diaries- WiFi party, updates and Halloween!

Hello everyone! You might not remember me, since… well… it’s been about 6 months!!! And I honestly am extremely frustrated at my lack of focus, determination and enthusiasm. I have no excuse, really, I’ve even been playing Animal Crossing because I love it, but the posting part was a bit… absent.

Hope all of you have had a good 6 months and feel well about starting a new year! Even though nothing has really changed for me. Anyways, I should quit rambling already and show you what I’ve been doing! I hope you all enjoy!

Let’s start out with a couple fun times I had on a WiFi meeting with Amy, Choco and TeruAll their blogs are worth checking out!! And I’m so thankful for the friendship I have with them, it was so nice catching up with them! Actually, by now we should probably meet again, it’s been so long!! 😦

I think it was reeeeeally early for Amy, so we had a morning cup of coffee. Aren’t those mosaic paths so pretty? I’ve always been a fan of how Amy decorates Citàlune.

HNI_0086 HNI_0087

Oh, don’t mind us, just having a cup of tea!

HNI_0091

I love this picture of the four of us! We all have our eyes closed and Amy’s balloon matches her dress and all the green!

HNI_0095

As you can see, we have a bunch of incredible abilities, such as playing instruments and singing! 😆

HNI_0097

I felt like an absolute goddess in this chair!

HNI_0099

And I believe this was in Teru’s town, Arcadia, she had this simple but incredibly cool room, I’m a sucker for fun stuff like this! 😀

HNI_0001

Arcadia has this naturally beautiful vibe to it, all the flowers, the red and the way it’s organized just make you gasp! So pretty!! 😀

HNI_0002HNI_0004Choco went straight to the fun! She showed me how to do the net trick to get into the river!! 😀

HNI_0006

Another great group picture of us! This time in Choco’s town, Delltune!

HNI_0007

HNI_0008

Such a new town and it already was full of beautiful places, I hope Delltune is doing well, Choco!

HNI_0009 HNI_0010

And our last stop was my town, Lilycott! I was very sorry that I didn’t have much time to show them around and the only pictures I took were these two >.<  I had a wonderful time with all of you and hope to be able to meet you all again!! Lilycott looks quite different now, and will always welcome my Animal Crossing buddies!

Say what? Oh, you’re curious to see just how Lilycott has been evolving? Keep scrolling!

HNI_0009

My little red carnation garden! 🙂 It actually looks a lot better in winter >.<

HNI_0011 HNI_0014

Just a couple pictures:)

HNI_0083

What are you doing here?!?

HNI_0017

Serving coffee! This is actually my life long dream hahaha, I can’t wait to go to college and be a waitress somewhere in the US to pay for rent, although it might sound dumb 😛

HNI_0020

I remember Teru and I had a small talk about trains in Animal Crossing, she mentioned that she’s a tiiiiny bit faster than the train when she gets a perfect race, ever since I’m always trying to beat it! 😀

HNI_0022

This is an old picture of a second “resident area” in my town, it looks a bit awkward but, currently, it’s actually looking quite nice!

HNI_0024

The closest to a perfect rating I’ve ever got, but Isabelle always says I need more PWPs even though I am over the minimum of ten, is this some glitch?

HNI_0042

I changed the colors of my path a bit to match autumn better:)

HNI_0034

PS: This flower/pattern path actually leads up to houses, but I don’t have any pictures of it yet!

HNI_0046HNI_0060

HALLOWEEN!!

HNI_0048

And clubbing as a zombie! 😆

HNI_0075

Aww, yay!

HNI_0079

Works well enough for me!

And that’s all I’m showing you today, I should post soon with the pictures I took on New Years eve and these January days, couldn’t fit it in this post since it was getting long enough, sorry! I really wish you’re all doing well! Even though Holiday season is pretty much over, hope you had fun! Happy 2015, and I just wanted to say that you can’t choose for things to get better, but you can choose to smile more, I’ll try it as well! So I hope you’ve smiled during this post.

See ya’ later alligators, very soon racoons! 🙂

Lilycott diaries- WiFi fun, rainbow roses and almost perfect town??

Wohooo first day of summer vacations!! FINALLY! I’ll hopefully be able to post a lot more often and work on my town a lot more now! I’m very excited!

Hope everyone who has already started had a wonderful summer and good luck on the new school year. And to those of us on vacation, happy summer!! 😀 Now onto the post…

I decided to call these following updates on my town Lilycott diaries. Since my previous ones were explaining my first month in Lilycott, these next ones could be more entitled to getting a perfect town, the layout of Lilycott… I don’t know, I guess we can try 😛

Oh wait… and ugh my posts get sooooo long, sorry guys!

Wait, wait, sorry one last thing: the almost perfect town is a bit of an exaggeration :mrgreen:

HNI_0086

Let’s start off with the celebration of the town fountain! ^^ My idea is to plant orange and pink tulips all around it, kinda creating a nice sunset-ish garden right at the entrance of town!

HNI_0082

I had to redo a side of my three-space wide path, so it would look symmetrical, and while cutting down trees I came across a special tree stump.

HNI_0088

Swimming in the moonlight 😀

HNI_0090

Graham told me he was going to move for the 2nd time, and the first time I had said he should move because his house was in the way of my path, however the second time he asked I didn’t have the heart to say yes 😦

HNI_0091

Slowly building my forest…

HNI_0093

And placing a bench in next to my fruit tree “forest” next to a cliff. I’ve been working quite a lot on the left side of town, but my right side is almost bald, haha.

HNI_0094

And I believe this was my second silver slingshot flying around town, bu now I have about 5 of them, so if anyone needs them…

HNI_0095

Some progress made on my island, and a purple pansy! Choco was asking me how I got it, in my experience, it just showed up with the blue pansies, however google says red+red make a purple hybrid…?

HNI_0096

Why hello, Gulliver.

HNI_0018

We are to globs in the water, wait… we who?

HNI_0019

Choco came to visit!! Or shall I say Mr. Chocolate, I wish I could grow such a mustache!

HNI_0020

HNI_0021 HNI_0022

I showed her around my treasure island and we moved onto swimming and getting stung by so many jellyfish. 

HNI_0024 HNI_0025 HNI_0026 HNI_0027 HNI_0028

Our attempts at jumping off at the same time :mrgreen:

HNI_0029

Choco has recently started her newest town, Delltune, and she told me how much she misses peaches as native fruit, so I let her take a couple ones!! (she really helps me out later, too!)

HNI_0030

HNI_0031 HNI_0033

She was not kidding when she said she was going to do some shopping, she whipped clean the stores!! 😀

HNI_0036

She even bought some fortune cookies, for us to eat!

HNI_0037

HNI_0038 HNI_0040

We then decided I should visit her town, which has a beautiful town flag! o.o and I forgot to take pictures of it, but the entrance was decorated beautifully with chocolate-themed patterns ^^.

HNI_0041

Coincidentally matching umbrellas!

HNI_0042

And jumping off cliffs! I love seeing how beaches are shaped in so many towns, my town only has a tiny little cliff that you can actually jump off to the water from, so I love making the most of my swimming sessions in other towns 😛

HNI_0043

Another shark!! I’m starting to believe sharks are much more common when WiFing, is that possible?

HNI_0044

Again, we are to globs under water ^.^

HNI_0045 HNI_0048

Hahah, I laughed so much here, we “discovered” than when wearing a wetsuit and pressing A while facing each other, it looks like you’re hugging!!

HNI_0049

Choco showed me some beautiful artwork she had made, it actually explains a story, can you guess what it says? Tiny disclaimer: it is a sad story 😦

HNI_0051

It took me a while to realize what Choco was doing at this time, she later told me she was building a maze! At first I was filling up all the holes >.<

HNI_0055

Awee, Kapp’n, traveling with you is always a pleasure.

HNI_0066 HNI_0067 HNI_0069

We mostly played mini games on the island, they are soooo much more fun with a companion!!

HNI_0071 HNI_0072

Heheh, I won that one, Choco!

HNI_0073 HNI_0074

Can you just see our faces of joy? We couldn’t stop winning! We are the BEST PLAYERS EVAAAAA

HNI_0075

… remember what I said about being the best players?

HNI_0076

But we couldn’t accept a loss, so we decided to play memory again! However Choco’s internet got cut off, and I literally was in that same position for like a minute, the hole time I was saying stuff like “uh, Choco?” “HELP!” “I think I’m stuck”

HNI_0077

After that tiny incident, she came back to visit Lilycott, to see K.K perform at my Club!

HNI_0078

While waiting until 8pm we played some hide and seek.

HNI_0079

And I discovered that my museum actually sells silver tools! Woot!

HNI_0080 HNI_0081 HNI_0082

Do you think she sees me?

HNI_0083

Spoiling my town tree… :3

HNI_0084 HNI_0085 HNI_0086 HNI_0087 HNI_0088

And clubbing like we were born for it! 😛

Thanks for visiting, Choco, I had a wonderful time!

*

HNI_0089

Yay! My first mushroom!

HNI_0097

Celebrating the town’s new bench and…

HNI_0099

GAH swimming with sharks!

HNI_0100

And this shall be the placement of the new fence I’ll put up!

HNI_0005

Oh my goooood!! I seriously freaked out when I read this, do you understand what this means? Perfect town, here I come!!! (It’s not perfect, but I can’t believe I’m so close to it!)

HNI_0006 HNI_0008 HNI_0009

Just playing a humble game of hide-and-seek ^^

HNI_0010 HNI_0011

And some more online meetings! I got to visit the lovely Delltune again, here’s the entrace I was talking about! (It’s kinda like chocolate, isn’t it?)

HNI_0012

Teru was also there, and she gave us both lots of hybrid roses, beautiful!

HNI_0014

I had brought over some fossils and gems to help Choco with her collection, but I felt bad that I didn’t have anything for Teru!

HNI_0015

Another shark!

HNI_0016

And another game of hide-and-seek, can you believe we’re all behind a house right now? It was Teru’s genius hiding place!

HNI_0018 HNI_0019

We then made time to visit my town, Lilycott.

HNI_0020

And they both benefited from having Joan there, since my town is a day later than real time (yes, I time traveled… but only 24h!)

HNI_0021 HNI_0022

They both very kindly helped out with the donations of the fence, I kinda felt bad, thanks so much, guys!!

HNI_0023

Heheh, we were waiting to see if Amy would show up, and a friend went online so I got my hopes up! 😛

HNI_0024 HNI_0025 HNI_0026

Playing around my stump!

HNI_0027

And Teru realized it was in an inconvenient place, so since she has a silver axe, she cut a new one in a better place, thank you!!

HNI_0028

Ahahah, in this picture it looks like we’re waiting in line to buy turnips, I hope you’re happy with your customers, Joan!

HNI_0029

Before Teru left, I asked if I could show her one of my favorite spots in town, the treasure island/secret garden, you have to swim to be able to get there, (see my map here), so I lend her my wetsuit and told her where to go 😛

She told me about a pansy that looked like it was glitched, I never had realized that! It’s like the cliff eats off a part of it! Heheh.

HNI_0030 HNI_0031

She then had to leave, good bye Teru, thanks for coming!

HNI_0032

And when I came back… HOLY GUACAMOLE! Choco said she had spend over 600K on turnips!!

HNI_0033 HNI_0034

What she said.

HNI_0035

Remembering old memories, aaah, good times!

HNI_0036 HNI_0037

Racing and… you guessed it, getting stung by jellyfish!

Choco then also had to leave, I had a wonderful time!

*

HNI_0038

Yay!! Look how pretty they look!! 😀

HNI_0039

And sporting my new fav hat! ^^

HNI_0040

Hahah, I probably would’ve bought this in my Wild World town, but not here, I’m the mayor; people expect me to be wise! 😛

HNI_0041

HNI_0043 HNI_0044

Wooho!

HNI_0045

o.o what’s this? A BALD SPOT IN TOWN?

HNI_0047

And thanks to the tip I heard Teru mention in her last post, I caught my first bee! (second try). I remember how much I struggled to catch one of these in Wild World, in New Leaf it was actually a lot easier!

HNI_0050 HNI_0051

Awee, how could I not give my favorite cereal (get it? ’cause of Golden Grahams, and his name is Graham… hahah, oh) a perfect peach?

HNI_0054 HNI_0055

HNI_0061

Hey look, Kapp’n looks asleep!!

HNI_0062

Woo! Villagers have started to recognize the Beautiful Town ordinance in Lilycott!

HNI_0063

SO EXCITING!

HNI_0064 HNI_0066 HNI_0067 HNI_0068

Sorry, I had to, I was crying of laughter every time my character fell.

HNI_0070 HNI_0071

Yay!! Leif announced that, with the opening of T.I.Y he will be expanding his shop!!

HNI_0072 HNI_0074 HNI_0075 HNI_0076

I attended Roscoe’s birthday party, I love how they announce them on the bulletin board, so I don’t forget 😛

HNI_0078 HNI_0079

This was too cute to not to take a picture of it.

HNI_0080

New PWP requests!

HNI_0082

And celebrating the new fence in Lilycott!

HNI_0084

Graham also recognizing the ordinance (I promise this is almost the end, just a couple more pictures).

HNI_0085

And awww I caught Dizzy watering flowers! Good elephant!!

HNI_0086

Every time I see the train pass by I get excited and try to chase it, this is still pretty new to me!

HNI_0088

I love the afternoon talks I had with Choco every now and then!

HNI_0091

How was I supposed to not take a picture of this?

HNI_0093 HNI_0094

Blah, swallowed some sand.

HNI_0098 HNI_0099

But to cheer myself up a bit I topped everything off with some midnight clubbing (actually 9pm clubbing, tomorrow was a school night :mrgreen: )

EDIT: If Teru, Amy and Choco read this: would you guys like to arrange a WiFi, all four of us? I’m going to be free pretty much all day except on certain days/weeks (like next week, for example, I’ll only have afternoon) but when would you guys be available? I’m sooooo excited to meet you all again, and reunite “the gang” heheh.

How to… Catch a Bee: Step by step

Catching a bee can be hard work, not nearly as much as catching a tarantula, or a scorpion, but still, it certainly isn’t the easiest to catch.

To catch a bee, you are going to need:

  1. A net in your pockets
  2. Braveness: really, be brave, they can be a little scary sometimes…
  3. Trees in your town: you better not have cut them off! If you have, just buy a sapling at Nook’s and dig in a hole with a shovel, drop the sapling in it and hope for it to grow! (No water is needed, unlike with flowers)
  4. Empty hands!

What to do:

  1. Start shaking trees, until a beehive falls to the ground.
  2. Run a little bit away from the tree in a circle motion, if possible, until you’re as far away as you seem to be able to (more or less a second away from them catching you if you stop running 😛 )
  3. Open you inventory
  4. Grab the net and as fast as you can (practice makes perfect) close the inventory and start pressing swinging your net!!

4 simple steps, but they aren’t easy at all, still; practice a few times, get stung a few times and before you know it you’ll have a 4.500 bell bee in your pockets!!

Hope this helped! To know a tiny bit more about bees here you have a small technical card with its size, selling information and where or when to catch it 😉
