If you’re here from 5 Minutes for Mom, welcome! If not, that’s ok, I don’t mind guests that show up without RSVP-ing! This is my first Blog Party and I’m so glad you’re here.
I Throw Like a Girl has been around since October 2007. So we are still very new. It used to be called “Love, Hugs, and Prayers from Carol” because I was so new at this I didn’t know that I would actually have to name my blog when I set it up. Even when my daughter was born, they let me have the whole time I was in the hospital (all 2 days of it) to decide on her name.
But I soon realized that even I wanted to gag every time I read the name of my blog. It was just too sickeningly sweet. So, in December, I held a ginormous Name This Blog contest.
There were all kinds of cash and prizes offered. The prize was a $5 Starbucks gift card. My 1 faithful reader at the time, Linda from 2nd Cup of Coffee voted and – guess what? She won and cast the deciding vote that named my blog I Throw Like a Girl. Thanks again, Linda!
I don’t have small children anymore, but I do have a 19 year old son who is away at college. I may have mentioned about a kagillion times that I miss him – A Lot. I also have a 16 year old daughter who is a sophomore in high school. She is absolutely not going to college unless I get to go with her and live in her dorm. She doesn’t know that yet.
Since this is my blog, I pretty much write about whatever I feel like at the time. Sometimes it’s a funny story or observation. Sometimes it’s a devotional. I don’t do pictures, though. Not because I don’t want to, but truth be told, I don’t know how. Everytime I try, the picture comes out sooooo big that the whole screen is taken up with an eyeball or something. That’s just not pretty.
So take a look around, make yourself comfortable. I’ll be serving warm apple dumplings and vanilla ice cream shortly. Oh, and if you leave a comment, you will be entered into a drawing for
lots of cash and prizes a $5 Starbucks gift card! (The drawing will be held on the last day of the party, Friday, March 14th)
