I’m half Irish and Half German.  Both of my parents had one parent from Germany and one parent from Ireland.

German, Polish, and Irish are the main ones and some Native American, but I think I had a couple others floating in there as well. Hubs is 100% Chinese.

When I read your subject line, I was all ready to announce “They’re both from Iowa, but moved to DC after college.”  But that’s totally not what you meant.  We’re half Irish, half German.

My parents are both from Mexico, I think I have different heritages in my blood though because there are a lot of family members with blonde hair and colored eyes.

I was thinking the same thing ErinM.  My mother’s side is Irish and Native American and my Father’s side is Irish and German.  So I am short lil thing with a BIG temper..lol (but amazing cheek bones if I say so myself…lol)

@missasb — I know!  I love how easy it is… it’s kinda amazing to only be a 3rd gen. American.  I asked Fiance and he said he’s a little bit of everything.  Sounds like our kids will have a little more of a mouthful!

Well…I’m Canadian not American but my paternal grandfather and maternal grandmother have Scottish backgrounds and my paternal grandmother and maternal grandfather are from German backgrounds.  However, we’ve been in Southwestern Ontario for 7 generations…so not so Scottish-German anymore.
