Carolina Girls Best in the World - Roll Call


"Carolina Girls... Best in the world! Sweet Carolina Girls."
Hi Y'all, It has been a real delight to meet so many Carolina Girls, Carolina Mamas, etc. :) I'd love to have a BlogRoll of the Carolina Girls/Mamas. :) So I wanted to ask you to leave me a comment and let me know - South Carolina? North Carolina? Both. are you a native?

Maybe longing for your Carolina home? Or as James Taylor would say, "In my mind I'm gone to Carolina. Can't you just see the Sunshine." Join the Rollcall. This will be fun. And I look forward to it.

Also, I have never asked before - everyone else will you let me know who you are. We all have blogs we read and visit and do not have time to comment. Today I would love to know where my readers are from. Just leave me a comment. And if you have been reading annonymously - I would love you to step up and introduce yourself. It appears I have a few neighbors/locals really who are reading and that may just merit special treatment. :)

Thanks for your reading and if you want to join the "Tweets" for more details, see you on Twitter: join here. My Twitter is Carolina Mama ;) Come let us know "what you're doing right now."

Look forward to seeing our Carolina Girls and Carolina Mamas Blogroll!

Guess what the Carolina Girls Blogroll is in my left sidebar, click "Show All" at the bottom to see the prestigious list. And go to Things I Love Thursday to see more lovely 'things' and share your own.

Oh yes. I grew up in Boone, NC, then lived and worked in Charlotte. We moved away for 20+ years and now are back in the southern NC mountains (Brevard) and enjoying our retirement.

I've been reading your blog for a couple of months. I think I found you through WeAreTHATFamily. I live in Albuquerque, NM and have never met a Carolina girl I didn't like! I follow you on Twitter too (I'm robinmbnm there.)

Christy said...

Hi Carolina Mama!

I am from Ohio... born and raised here and often wonder if I will ever live anywhere else!

I LOVE North Carolina! My grandmother is from Raleigh and my favorite place in the world is Sunset Beach. There really is no place like the South. I would like to think that I am a southern girl at heart:)

Susanne said...

Good grief! Could you have fit any more of my favorite things/songs into this post! My girl and I have t's just like that (except w/ the SC Palmetto tree... and mine's pink!) I think I just answered your question, but just in case...
I'm Susanne from Florence, SC.
This is a great idea!

Nancy M. said...

This is an awesome idea. I always wanted to meet more bloggers from the Carolinas! Thanks for making it happen. I grew up in Kannapolis, but now we live in Chesterfield, SC. I love it here!

Carolina Mama said...

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Hi there...it's me. :) You know I still stop by although I don't always get to leave a comment. Hugs!

Sarah said...

Oh, I wish I was a Carolina girl. Mike and I always say that if we didn't live in TN, NC would be the place to live.
My family's roots go back to NC and we just love, love, love, the beaches!

AmyG said...

I'm a lurker to your blog. You actually found me, when I had another blog. Not sure if you knew I moved. Anywhoo... I'm a transplant from Florida. I live in Western North Carolina, outside of Asheville. ;o)

I really love your blog! I'll be linking... but first I am running all the young-uns in my house to BED!Oh, and I'm moving back to Alabama so I'm not REALLY a Carolina Girl but I can pretend!

Sarah said...

Hey! I have that T-shirt, we are HUGE fans! I am from Boone, NC, up in the mountains! Nice to connect with all you "Carolina Mamas"

tardevil said...

Hi Carolina Mama, Love the idea! I'm from the Triangle area and lived there until 2006. Then, I moved to Irmo, SC for 1 year & I've been in Mooresville, NC ever since. In my mind, I'll always be in N. Carolina, but I spend summers in N. Myrtle Beach, so I heart SC too! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Feel free to add me to your blog roll. Don't know if you know Lynette at Lynette's L.A.M. or Kristen at Something about Nothing, and Jennifer, her link is on my lemonade award is living in Durham. If I forgot something, please let me know!

Smelling Coffee said...

This is like the roll call at the Miss America Pagent (imagine it with a rolling voice and a southern accent!):

Hi, I'm Jennifer, and my hometown is the country music capitol of the world - Nashville, Tennessee! :-)

Oh yes - let's get all of these Carolina girls together for one big meet IRL blogging day.

Shouting out a "hi all" from the Piedmont Triad. :)

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...

Hi - North Carolina girl born and bred. Hubby is from South Carolina.
I am from Jacksonville, NC (actually a little town called Swansboro), married a US Marine - traveled the world and we retired back "home." North Carolina was always in my blood and I knew I would be back! Love the saying on the shirt - but do they have it in the NC State version. I am allergic to anything with the Tarheel emblem. Go Wolfpack! LOL

KD said...

Carolina mama I have been on your blogs all morning! I left you an award on mine!
~KD

Lynette said...

OK - checking in from Johnston Co NC!! Not a native, but lived in NC for almost 20 years, so that counts, huh?? We have a condo in SC also, so I'm a double whammy, but I'll claim NC first!!
Glad Tar pointed me in your direction - I'll snag your button and add it to my sidebar - I'm all about the buttons these days!!

Kristen said...

Hey Carolina Mama
tardevil told me about you and I had to come sign up.
I do want to clarify I am a native NC but I'm NCSU all the way.
Love this idea of linking all Carolina girls!!

Hi Carolina Mama,

Tardevil told me about you. My name is Beth and I am a NATIVE (believe it or not) of North Carolina. We live in Cary (central NC).

It is great to meet you!

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Hi Carolina Mama, I come by way of Tardevil. She told me that you were composing a list of Carolina Bloggers. What a great idea! I am right off the coast of Southeastern NC! Please add me to your list! It is always a pleasure to meet fellow Carolina girls...there is nothing like them! {not a biased opinion in the least! "smiles"}

Oh, and I am a native. Have lived all but about 5 years of my life in the same NC county! :) ~Rhonda

Stacie said...

Hello Carolina Mama,
I'm a day late but thought I'd add my name to the roll...This is Alisa from Carolina Pananche. I live in the Charlotte area. Originally from WV, made it to NC by way of FL (married a Florida Cracker! LOL). A job transfer brought us to NC - Love it! Wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world! Seriously!

Hey Carolina Mama! I'm a North and South Carolina girl. Myrtle Beach, Raleigh and back to Myrtle!! Plus a stint in the frozen tundra of Massachusetts. BRRRRRRR. So glad to be back in the sunny, WARM south! Please add me to your blog roll!

"Just Me - NC Beth" said...

Hey Carolina Mama!! What a great idea! I'm from Mt. Holly, NC...just about 20 minutes south of Charlotte! Was born in Rockingham and moved around a few times but never out of North Carolina! Couldn't imagine living anywhere else! Beaches on one end and mountains on the other! Perfect!
I'd love to hear from any and all of you "Carolina Girls"!! The Best in the World! Yep!

Gigi said...

Just came over from Scooterblu's Whimsy- Rhonda. I'm definitely a Carolina Girl! Born and bred in the Sandhills area, and lived almost 20 years in Raleigh. Now I'm an "exile" in Northern Virginia :) but we still have hopes and dreams of moving back to NC to join the rest of our extended family.
Nice to meet you! I look forward to reading through your blog soon.

Beverly said...

I live in North Carolina. But, I can't be a "Carolina girl" because I am a Duke girl. ;-)

Crystal said...

I just happened upon your blog, and I have to say a huge "hello!" to all the other Carolina girls! I grew up outside of Burlington and now live in Rocky Mount. I moved away for about 3 years when I got married, but we couldn't wait to get back!
