A Test for Me and a Prize for You!

A Test for Me and a Prize for You!

The DNA results are in!

Turns out I’m 87% Central European and not even anything remotely jazzy like Italian or Greek. It’s no wonder my kids are so, um, pale, even given their much more pigmentally-gifted father.  You can’t beat those numbers!

But, it turns out I am also 13% something else.  Care to guess? Check out my picture, although I’m not sure it will help.

If you guess correctly, you will win a prize: A $25 gift card to! Leave your guess in the comments.




  1. I love all the guesses!!! I was so tickled by them. Thanks for playing along!

    So, it’s here, the moment you’ve all been waiting for (with bated breath, no doubt). I am 13%….Finnish/Volga Ural!! Nope, I did not make that up. It’s an actual part of the world. The Finnish part is, well, clearly, Finland. My DNA has markers from there, and next door western RUSSIA! Bordered by the Volga mountains and the Ural river. Are you paying attention? HEY! This is cool!!

    Okay, back to the part about YOU. We do have a winner of the $25 gift card: it is JILL!

    Thanks everyone. Keep checking in. I will be running more giveaways, quizzes, and other fun stuff. Just today, Cute Banker and I worked on a recipe we’re calling Garden Marys. Yes, it does involve fresh garden goodies, and, more importantly, VODKA. (I am Russian, after all)!

    Stay tuned!

    • Woop, woop! My second guess was going to be Russian! Man, I’m good if I do say so myself. Now guess what I am? But no give-away, cause sadly I don’t know the answer! Just a beautiful mutt!

  2. I’m going to go for Irish, because no one has said that yet.

  3. Well, I read recently that 0.5% of the world’s population is descended from Genghis Khan, so I’m gonna play the odds and go with Mongolian.

  4. French!!!

  5. Yep, native American

  6. Sorry for the duplicates! Haha I was having issues with my phone. By the way, this is so exciting! Your first giveaway!

  7. Is it Cherokee?

  8. South African?

  9. My guess is Cherokee.

  10. How about Cherokee?

  11. Since English is too easy, how about Finland?

  12. I’m going with northern European. Scandinavian, maybe.

  13. I’m going to go with Native American. I could definitely see that. Am I right?!

  14. This is the one she calls “cute banker” although I don’t think that is quite accurate these days. Having two kids has had its effect on me too. You probably think I know the answer to this but she refuses to tell me, so I, like the rest of you, must venture a guess; and I have a feeling that even if I get it right, I don’t get the gift card. So here goes…Irish?

Thanks for reading. Now, do some writing! Leave a comment!
