Okay, this is a linking game. It's an easy way to find out who you have things in common with... (With whom you have things in common...?)

I'll state a fun fact about myself. If that applies to you then you post and say, "me too" and then post a new fact about you for someone else to link to.

Example:

A: Favorite color is blue
B: Me too! I have a tattoo.
C: Me too! *insert fact*

Easy, right? Let's do this!




Fact: My favorite color is pink. Anything bright pink

Wow, those are tough follow-ups! Wonder how long it will be before someone else can say "Me too!" to marrying her high school sweetheart?

My sister's MIL and FIL are step- brother and sister. They always tell the story for shock value. Apparently the mother of one and the father of the other passed away, and the surviving spouses married each other, making their (already married) son and daughter step siblings.

Actually, this is more common than one might think. Especially among identicals. When you think about it, it makes sense - if one sister thinks that boy is pretty cute, her twin will likely think his twin is cute The coolest thing I learned when researching this, is that the children of two pairs of married identicals are not only first cousins but also full siblings because of sharing identical genetic makeup! So neat.

Not sure . I haven't ever met anyone else who has twins for parents. I guess my bio dad's father and grandfather are both twins as well. There are also some more twins on my maternal great grandmother's side as well.

Back on track!

I make jewelry too. Sort of. Mostly felted wool pins. Does that count? And I use beads sometimes.

I am finding out what I'm having (hopefully tonight!).

My aunt & uncle were brother and sister too. lol The joke was their twin sons were cousins. My maternal aunt's mother married her husband's father. They were married for about 8 years before they died. And no, no one was raised together.

My sisters are identical twins. They conceived around the same time, but one always had hers very early. One had all boys, one had all girls. They are genetically as close as if one mother had 2 different fathers for her kids. I did this whole paper on it in college because I thought it was so cool. What's interesting is I think they look nothing alike, but my DH, friends and even the younger other cousins still confuse them. And as babies, the kids would get mad, because they could tell the difference by smell, they looked and sounded the same, and then you could see them sniff a shirt and then start crying like they were mad and trying to go to someone else. They didn't do that to other people!

I have blue eyes, blonde hair, more than one pet (2 big dogs, 2 cool cats, 1 fish).
