Michele Mathews

Hey ... I'm Michele Mathews 1/3 of The Morning Bull Pen. Or you could say I'm the beauty and my partners are the beasts! I'm a working mother of four kids trying to juggle everyday life without dropping any balls along the way. I'm born and raised in the Yakima Valley dirt. I started out in radio at the age of 15 at the Yakima Valley Skills Center. I've moved around the dial to various radio stations and took a few years off to raise babies before finding my home on The Bull. My one vice is drinking a mint mocha every morning. I LOVE (obsessed with) Alexandar Skarsgard, Sam Hunt and Tim McGraw. Follow me on Twitter @michelem929 and Instagram MICHELEM929. Remember that I love you!

Adult Coloring Books Help Grownups Relieve Stress

As a kid I would get lost for hours coloring in a color book. I'd color pages for certain family members, which always brought smiles to their faces.

It's such a joy to see the same thing happen with my own kids.

Why stop coloring when you grow up? Well, you might not have to -- now there are adult coloring books with stress-relieving patterns.
