The Drawing Showdown

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 19, 2010

As I tried to come up with a dinner idea tonight, I decided that I really need to get groceries. We literally have an empty cupboard, freezer, and fridge!

As a result, our meal was quite random!

I present to you gourmet nacho chips. Only the most sophisticated of chefs would approve!


Said gourmet nacho chips included nacho chips, salsa, and leftover Black Eyed Pea Soup. It was a dinner fit for a king and queen.

Dessert was requested by Eric. He thought it would be a good idea to coat almonds in chocolate like we did with the raisins.


I agreed.



However we both concluded that there was not enough chocolate on them…


So we added a double layer.


It was improved, but sort of a bust. The raisins were a gazillion times better. We will be sticking to the chocolate-covered raisins!

We still managed to eat a few…


Then we did what all normal married couples do.

Drawing Showdown.

How did this drawing show down begin, you ask?

Well, Eric said he was better at drawing than me (oh no he didn’t!) so I challenged him to a drawing showdown.

It was ON.

I picked a picture of myself at 3.5 years old. As you can see, my love for stuffed bears and the colour pink started early. [I do not thank my mother for my bowl shaped haircut though!]

I set the Kitchenaid timer for 5 minutes and we drew our little hearts out…


It was a moment that will forever go down in our family history.

We giggled, we cursed, and we stuck our tongue out of our mouth just a little bit as we drew.

We focused.

We popped a few brain cells.

Zooming in…


This is what you call Epic.


And now we will do a little vote- Can you guess which one is MY drawing and which one is Eric’s drawing? :whistle: AND if you so dare, say which one you think is better!!! :lol:

I know, I know, it is like trying to pick between a Picasso and a van Gogh!

haha! My guess is yours is the….second one!

Also, here’s an interesting (somewhat frightening) article I found that I thought you might be interested in :


Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter May 20, 2010 at 12:37 am

Hahaha this is far too funny. In one you look 30 lbs heavier, and in the other you look like a devil child haha


Jackie (Peaces of Earth) May 20, 2010 at 12:48 am

BAHAHAHA! I just legit cracked up!! I think yours is the first and Eric’s is the second. I think he would be more likely to draw your rosy cheeks like that. :)


Katie May 20, 2010 at 1:05 am

I like the top one…I’m guessing its yours because there is more detail to it?!


White Rabbit May 20, 2010 at 2:03 am

Ok – I think Eric’s is first and yours is second. I think the second one is a better technical drawing but the first one captures the expression better. This makes me sound like a pompous art critic but in truth, I am dreadful at art so I don’t really know what I’m talking about. Love the bowl haircut btw. My mum loved letting me and my siblings run around with the ol’ bowl cut. That and bad denim skirts, stirrup leggings and other ‘cool’ looks of that era :)

Oh – I forgot to say – is that a care bear in your arms? And is just me or does that care bear look like it’s wearing a pink toupee? I am getting all nostalgic for the 80s.

I think it’s fair to say, ‘stick to your day job’. Though you didn’t do as badly as I would! If I had to choose I’d say the bottom one is the better one!

Too cute! I think you are on top and Eric is on the bottom! Although you guys better stick to your day jobs!!!!

YUM-O on the nachos!


Lily @ Lily's Health Pad May 20, 2010 at 6:02 am

I think the top one is the better one. And I’d guess that it’s yours. But uh, I hate to break this to you….neither of you did much better than the other. LOL I love the super rosy cheeks on number 2!!!


De May 20, 2010 at 6:37 am

I think the top one is yours – more attention to the details in the room makes me think you drew the picture due to your memories of those items. Both drawings are good though! :)


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin May 20, 2010 at 7:29 am

Hahahaha you two are hilarious! I’m totally cracking up right now. :D


Meg May 20, 2010 at 7:31 am

Hmmm…tricky. I think would have to pick yours as the first one and Eric’s as the second one.

Good attempts to the both of you though!


Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman May 20, 2010 at 7:44 am

This is hilarious. I’m not saying you guys aren’t good, but they remind me a little bit of the Exorcist, especially the bottom one. You look evil! Haha. But if I had to guess, yours is top, his is bottom.


Caitlin May 20, 2010 at 7:51 am

I think yours is the bottom!

I couldn’t pick a favorite…as they are equally “unique” ! :)


shannon (the daily balance) May 20, 2010 at 8:21 am

OMG those drawings are hilarious!!!

at least your mother stuck with a bowl — lucky me got a MULLET!


Jil @ Peace, Love & Munchies May 20, 2010 at 8:34 am

Love the drawings – I honestly have no clue but I’ll guess that you’re #1. Love the haircut! In second grade I totally have a mushroom cut – I haha Albeit … a cute one, of course. hahah :)


Brynn May 20, 2010 at 9:22 am

haha! I love random, funny activities like this.


Alicia May 20, 2010 at 11:33 am

I think yours is the first one and his is the second!!!


Corinne (breathe and savor) May 20, 2010 at 2:01 pm

oh my! this is so silly! i love love love that you and eric competed in a drawing contest. i kid you not, my bf and i had a paint-off two weekends ago. ha. we decided we were both winners but when showing my mom and friends no one could guess correctly who did which painting! giggles!!! make sure you hang your art work in your house angela :)


Triathlonbabe May 20, 2010 at 11:34 pm

Dark chocolate covered anything is just YUM! Too funny, I think yours is the first and Eric’s the second. LOL! This brings back a memory of a pictionary game with friends…no matter what hubby got stuck with drawing, it was always the exact same thing, stick people….teehee!


junia May 24, 2010 at 9:39 am

Hi, found my way from the Smart, Pretty, and Awkward blog, and gotta say, love what i’m reading.

I think the second one captures the spirit of the picture more – there’s joy there; while the first one has a lot of detail.

I like the second one better. Perhaps it’s Eric’s though, for some reason, I feel like girls outgrow the swirly cheeks when we graduate elementary school. haha.
