Just some ramblings by a mother of two great kids and wife to one wonderful man. Don't really have a specific topic just wanted a place to muse.

I'm uncertain where I got my upper midwestern too! The yankee comes from my grandmother I'm sure. I'm surprised that there isn't more Dixie though. Hmmm.... Maybe it's from moving so much in the military and picking up a little of this and that in my speech from the areas and the people. Hmm... I don't know.
that is funny - I am an aussie - and I got 35% yankee!

Steph, I'm guessing the yankee comes from our grandmother.
