Miscellaneous Facts with Illustrations!

I figured most of you, if not all don't know much about me. I think the most that you know is what Brian has let leak in emails and blogging. I'm here to clear things up and hopefully make reading my posts and Brian's posts clearer.

Fact #1:
I'm a big time gamer, but lately no games have come out that I'm interested in. We pre-ordered LittleBigPlanet and I can't wait till we get it.
I can also correctly pronounce XBOX.

Fact #2:
All the women on both sides of my family are blond and so am I. Wait Ashley, your chosen picture and the picture on Brian's blog, you clearly have brown hair. What's up with that? The answer is simple, I change my hair color every year or so and I haven't been a natural blond since I was 18. I'm thinking though, once the baby is born I'll switch back to blond hair. What kind of blond am I? Well, I have very light blond hair and I'm not too keen on it. I look like one of those creepy girls from Children of the Damned.

Brian always goes on about how he's half Japanese and he loves being a dual citizen. What he hasn't told you is that I'm full blooded German. My dad is a third generation German immigrant, born in Wisconsin and my mom immigrated from Berlin when she was a little girl. I'm also fluent in German, French and I'm currently learning Japanese.

Like Brian with Japanese, I tend to swear in German when angry and I have a small accent as well. I've only been to Germany a few times and I hope to go again when the baby is a bit older.

Fact #4:
I'm voting for Obama.

Fun Fact #5:
This is what our faces looked like when we found out I really was pregnant.
Good times...
