Please note the very Game of Thrones-y weirwood tree in the upper left corner (Connor’s idea, not mine).

I’ve come to the realization that “adult” coloring books are a total scam.

They’re supposed to be for stress relief, and I love the amazing intricate artwork. I have a couple of them, but after YEARS I’ve yet to finish a single picture. Not one.

Started this bike a year ago; have yet to finish it.

Mostly, it’s because I can never decide what colors to use in the tiny shapes. Like, if I commit to coloring one small triangle in the spokes of this bike wheel with a dark forest green, it basically sets the tone for the rest of the picture. I’m obsessed with committed to coloring all of the similar triangles the exact same shade of green, and then all of shapes around the triangles need to be complementary tones… It isn’t particularly relaxing for a person who tends to overly complicate most things (*cough* me).

Children’s coloring books, though, are a totally different story! I love ’em. Children’s coloring books are where it’s at, girlfriend.

I color a lot with Connor in her books, which are more my speed than the adult ones. The shapes are easier to color-coordinate and don’t take a lot of brain power. Plus, when your toddler art director has very strong feelings about unicorns having rainbow manes, you have to listen.

Onward to this week’s stories…

This dad talkin’ about his 23-year old daughter’s brows cracks me up!

Anyone wanna go grocery shopping with me to this store?

Special girl, real good girl

Am I really gonna watch this 20-minute video of this cat swimming? Yes, yes, I am. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
