Show Us Your Singles

      Hey ladies! I'm Allyson's sister and biggest fan, Natalie! She was so sweet to let me hijack her blog today for Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Singles link up. I have read Kelly's blog for a while now and always thought this link up was such a good idea. Now that my sweet little sister has a blog (because I'm strictly a lurker and too lazy to have my own) it's the perfect time to tell y'all about my single friend, Ben!

      I have known Ben for 7 years. We met when we were both working at my church's after school program. We got along really well and he made me laugh and my boyfriend (now husband) hated him. That only lasted for a little while until the very first time they hung out and realized they are basically the same person. Now they're best friends.
Ben is seriously one of my favorite people in the world. He is a part of our family. My little girl calls him Uncle Ben, and he's one of her favorite people in the world too. 

     Here are the basics. He's 28 years old, is a Christian, and has a good job. He has great parents that raised him really well. He was born and raised in Jackson, TN, moved to Nashville for a few years for work, and about a year ago took a transfer to Memphis, TN. He graduated from Lambuth University, where he also played football, with a degree in history. He is really laid back and funny and a little bit sarcastic. He's a little shy at first, but he's one of those people that is just easy to be around. He loves watching football (Tennessee Titans, Tennessee Volunteers) and basketball (Memphis Grizzlies), playing golf, listening to music (blues, rock, country), and being outside.

      If anybody's interested, the guy is a catch! Leave a comment or if it's more your style to send an email, you can email Allyson at cupcakescandycanes@hotmail.com and she'll put us in touch!

I think Ben and my friend Hillary could get along great! Hillary is from the South, LOVES basketball and country music, and is absolutely hilarious. She also loves the Lord ever so much! Check out my post I did about her. ;)

Ben sounds like he'd be a good match for my friend, Jenny. She lives in Kentucky now, but she grew up in Tennessee and her family still lives there. Here's the post that I wrote about her:

Ben seems like a fun and great guy. I blog at www.cyndisstory.blogspot.com, but didn't link up with Kelly this time around. Have a great weekend.

I think my daughter would be a great match for Ben! Her name is Claire and she's a hairstylist in Northwest Arkansas. She's a godly young woman who is living to please God. She is fun and laidback and is a joy to be around. Her fault is being a shopahlolic =) She loves fashion, coffee, running, and movies. If you are interested, email me at tanksleykim@yahoo.com and i'll send you pictures and more info
