Show Us Your Singles!!!!

** 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.

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

Alex and his mama
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?!

With his mama again
 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!!!
Jennifer and Alex
 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.

Alex gave the girls matching Valentine's Day pajamas! Tamsie is modeling hers here. He is so thoughtful! :)

The most important thing about Alex is that he strives to be a Christlike man and desires people to see God's work in his life. When I asked him what he's looking for in a woman, he said he would like her to be driven, motivated, honest, caring, and to have a great sense of humor.
"Tough times don't last; tough people do."

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!


  1. Too bad I live on the otherside of the world... :) Hehe... but hey, travelling is on my list of thing to do too, and Colorado is pretty close to the top of that list, so maybe we'll run into each other some day... you never know!

  2. I am not sure how I even got to Kelly's Korner. From Twitter somehow! So then I ended up here. Alex seems like a sweetheart from your description. Men who love their sisters and moms are good guys!...and Christlike too? and good taste in music? Thumbs up to Alex! I'm a teensy tad bit older (turning 26 on Feb 9th) and a few states north (Pittsburgh, PA). I work at a University here in Pittsburgh and am going to grad school. I use to travel with a youth ministry, even to TN (nicest people ever!). Oh name is Tara. I am surprised he let you write this blog and even more shocked I'm leaving my email with you to pass on. Either way, best wishes in this endeavor!

  3. Hello,
    Your brother-in-law looks very nice. If you/he would like, you can check out Ashley, #44, on Kelly's blog. She loves Colorado!

  4. I am applying to PA school this year as well. Unfortunately, I live in the Pacific Northwest. Its a bummer because he sounds like a great guy.

    Best of luck to him, both in school and this singles day thing :)

  5. I would love to set him up with my sister...we are a bit of a distance, Southern Illinois, so jst a few hours, but you never know. My sis just turned 24 and teaches 3rd grade. My husband is a PA...great choice! I have a nlog and will work on getting pics of her up. You can email me at Maybe I could send more pics that way and info.

  6. Can you email me at I am from Knoxville.

  7. This is strange...but, my name is Kayla and I am about thirty miles away from Chattanooga going to school at Lee University in Cleveland, TN. I'm pretty young, 18 turning 19 this summer, but my maturity tends to make up for my age. I completely understand if 18 is too young, and if it is, don't worry about it, God's got my timing all figured out but I thought it is time to start putting myself out there :) My email I check most is and if you pray about it and decide you want more information, I'm basically an open book ;) Have a fantastic day!

  8. I'd like Alex to meet my friend, Julianne. Distance may be an issue but it never hurts to try, right? She's #21 over at Kelly's. :)

  9. My name is Amanda and I am #165 over at Kelly's :) He seems like an awesome Christian guy!!!

  10. Oh your brother in-law in adorable! It's great he let you post this for him. My best friend did the same for me a few years back. Believe me it takes a lot of trust and faith to do it. ANYWAYS......My name is Richelle. I live in Nashville, TN, but am originally from northeast Alabama about an hour-ish from Chattanooga. I have a blog that I sporadically try to keep updated. It is if you want to do some creeping first ;) If you think it would be okay to send my information on, my email is If you need anything else, please just ask!! Thanks!!

  11. Hey- you contacted me about my post about Michelle? If you want to email me, maybe we can exchange some contact info for them??? Eeekk- exciting! My email: meredithwramsey at gmail dot com

  12. My Best friend lives in chattanooga also, she is single and your brother-n-law seems like a great match. She is already a PA, 28, very outgoing, funny, beautiful..inside and outside and loves the Lord. My email is I would love to arrange for them to meet!!!
