I Sent Out My DNA?!

You might be thinking "What the heck do you mean Kendra?!" but I promise, this isn't a part of some strange cult. I have always been interested in genetics, ancestors, and things like family history, so I asked for the DNA Kit from Ancestry.com for Christmas. I actually heard about the DNA kit from the show America's Next Top Model (a guilty pleasure of mine), and have been wanting it ever since!


The whole process is really easy; you get the package in the mail, spit in the little tube they give you, activate your test online, and then send the tube back to them in the prepaid box given to you!

 This was actually the day I got my hair done - the last couple of pictures before I colored my hair!

 Wow read those instructions Kendra.

 Starting to spit hahaha.

This may be the best picture of me ever.

You get the results in 6-8 weeks, and they basically just tell you what you are, ethnicity wise! I know I have Scottish, Irish, and Native American in me predominately, but it'll be so interesting to find out just how much I have, and what else I am, if that makes sense haha. I will definitely be sharing the results once I get them!

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)

  1. Oh my god this is so awesome, I would love to try this one day! I know I'm mainly polish since my Mum is one hundred percent polish but a lot of my heritage is unknown since a few of my great grandparents were adopted during the war with no record of the biological parents. This would be amazing to try!

  2. This is so cool! I recently became very interested in my family's ancestry. I have shocked myself by finding so much info online about my ancestors. There is French in me that I never knew about. Can't wait to hear more about your results!
