Isn't that the coolest test? I came out as Ingrid. I love it! It was pretty spot on, too.

Still no baby! Kinda going crazy. Think positive thoughts for me, I want her to come NOW!!!!!! I'm not controlling am I?!?

Shanna said...

Almost spooky how they can get all that out of two questions huh?? I thought it was so cool ;)

I agree with you, it really seemed to fit you. I thought "are often loving, nurturing, and have a strong sense of duty" was right on for the parenting style!

No worries about Facebook, just me hoping to be able to stalk you some more LOL :)

You'll have to tell me how Dark Knight is. Hubby and I really need to get on Netflix again, we're so far behind on the movies we want to see!

Have a super fabulous weekend!
