** EDIT: This is now officially my most popular blog post to date!!!! YAY ALEX!! :) **
Hi to all you fabulous single girls coming over from Kelly's Korner!
I'd like to introduce you to my brother-in-law, Alex! He is currently 23 but will be turning 24 on the day before Valentine's Day, and he lives in Chattanooga, TN.
AND he happens to be single at the moment, so now's your chance, girls!
I can't believe he's letting me do this, but I'm so excited that he is! You never know what could happen! ;)
Alex is seriously one of the sweetest and most caring and giving guys I've ever met. He's also very smart and hard-working, which is probably why he's single -- he takes his studies seriously and stays so busy all the time! He loves school and is wrapping up his pre-professional bachelor's degree in exercise science, and when he finishes, he will be going to physician assistant school. When he's not studying, he's working at a swanky Chattanooga restaurant.
Anyone who knows Alex knows he LOVES Florida State football! He even gave Tamsie and Evangelyn the most precious FSU cheerleader outfits ever for them to wear as soon as football season begins!
He's also a big fan of the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Braves and Memphis Grizzlies. Not only is he a fan, he's also quite the athlete himself! He is outdoorsy and loves playing just about any sport, and he's also very competitive. He loves running and plyometrics.

Alex is very kind-hearted, honest and genuine. He is very passionate and gives his all to everything he gets involved in -- including relationships. :)

Other things you should know about Alex: he's very loyal and an excellent friend. He's had most of his best friends (doubt they call each other that though! ha!) for years and years.
He also LOVES his family!! My husband Chris is about five years older than Alex, and they are super close and talk all the time. Alex is only 15 months younger than his sister Jennifer, and they grew up like best friends and remain so to this day. He's also very close to Jennifer's husband Tyler. He is an outstanding big brother to Noah, and he is crazy about his mama!
|Here's Chris's family at our wedding on June 14, 2008. Alex was the best man!|
When we first announced that we were pregnant, his response was something like, "It's MY time now!" He had been looking forward to becoming an uncle ever since Chris and I got married (about four and a half years ago!!), and now that he is one, he is AWESOME at it! He even sent me a Mother's Day gift last year... how sweet is this guy?!

Alex is the perfect Southern gentleman. He's always extremely polite and thinking of others first. He may be kind of shy at first, but the more you get to know him, the more he opens up, and he is so much fun to be around!!!

Alex hopes to wind up in Colorado at some point and to have snowboarding as a hobby. In his free time he loves to travel and hopes to travel lots more!
|Trying to make a Noles fan out of Evie early on in her life!|
Alex is a huge fan of all kinds of music! Here are some of his favorite bands and artists: Jimi Hendrix, Deftones, the Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Audioslave, 311, Korn, Kings of Leon, BB King, Coldplay, Dave Matthews, My Morning Jacket, Outkast, Rage Against the Machine, Matisyahu, Smashing Pumpkins, Sublime, the Beatles and Jim Morrison.

|Any girl who manages to capture Alex's heart will be one very lucky girl indeed! :) Feel free to comment here, and I'll get you in touch with him... OR if you're too shy, just send me an e-mail at vafitwins at gmail dot com. Can't wait to see what happens for him!|
