Haaaaaaave you met Kyle?

(And if you know what show that's from, you may just be the perfect girl for my brother!)

(This post is part of Show Us Your Life at Kelly's Korner.)

This is Kyle.
Not the one on the left, the goofy one with the umbrella. That's my husband. Cute, I know, but married. Kyle is the one on the right with the sweet water pistol. My little brother is 26 years old. He lives in St. Louis, MO. He is a 6'2, very handsome college graduate from UT in Austin, with a degree in Advertising. He works for a St. Louis television station as a news producer - an Emmy-nominated one, might I add - and he just bought his first home in the St. Louis area, which he shares with his sweet pup, Hamus.


This is Kyle and my dad at a Big Green Egg convention in Tulsa. Our parents live in Tulsa, and the rest of our extended family is in the Northwest Arkansas area. We do manage to see each other fairly often - we're a close-knit family who enjoys spending time together. We love to get together to play games, eat amazing meals, work puzzles, take mini-trips, and basically just laugh ourselves sick. Kyle is absolutely the life of the party - supremely smart and funny. I love every minute we spend together.



This is Kyle with my oldest son, Owen. He is such a great uncle to my four kiddos. He always makes them laugh. He makes sure to send special cards on holidays (even marked with a pawprint from his dog, which the kids LOVE), and gives them amazing gifts. My kids LOVE their uncle Kyle.

Here is Kyle with my four kids this past July 4th. We all met in Tulsa at my parents' house for a fun weekend. You can tell by those faces that they are a handful, but Kyle is wonderful with them.


Kyle is in great shape, and enjoys running. He ran the Jenks Aquarium half marathon this past year, and he's run some smaller races, as well (the picture above is my husband, my dad, and Kyle running a 5K this past July).

Kyle loves the Lord, our family, cooking, music, television, watches, and his dog Hamus. He decided when he was in high school that he would finish college and get settled into a stable career before he got into any serious relationships, so that he would be ready to support and wife and family. He is ready now. If you think you can handle my amazing brother (and the rest of his amazing family), please leave me a comment below. Thanks!

I'm a 21 year old single girl originally from St. Louis (as in my family all still lives there so I am there all the time). I am actually currently training for my first half marathon. Have him email me if he's interested.

Kyle sounds like an incredible guy and we have some things in common. I love the part about the pawprint in his cards...I totally do that in cards for my cat...haha. I would be interested. I have a post about myself up (Kati, 22, Missouri--http://kati-lynn.blogspot.com/2011/01/show-us-your-lifesingles.html) if you want to read it, and see if you think he would be interested.

Hi! My name is Allison and I'm an almost 23-year-old currently attending graduate school and living in St. Louis. First and foremost I love God with all my heart. I love spending time outdoors, traveling, and basically going on any sort of adventure. I don't have a blog, but feel free to contact me at alhotta@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you! Best wishes.

Hi my name is Jennifer! I'm 26 and live in the St. Louis area! I would love to get to know Kyle more. To find out more about me visit http://mamasneedchocolate.blogspot.com/2011/01/jennifer-is-26-and-single-in-st-louis.html please email if you are interested!

Ashley said...

Wow! Kyle should meet my sister in law, Geni. She's 25, and an elementary teacher in Tecumseh, OK. She's a strong Christian and an avid runner! She trains all the time and does tons of marathons, triathalons, and is training for a half iron man. I know they don't live near by, but Tulsa is sort of half way between them and my in-laws don't live too far from Tulsa either! E-mail me if you're interested @ 2bcaptivating@gmail.com!

Jane said...

All these darn STL girls! :) I lived up there for a summer, but I'm back home in Tulsa these days. I don't think I am going to do a specific post for SUYL because I already have an entire blog about me ... haha! Your brother is really cute!

Mollie said...

Your brother seems like such a sweet guy! I'm a grad student at Mizzou -- feel free to look at my blog! www.mytwentyfirstyear.tumblr.com

Hope to hear from you or Kyle! :)

Katie said...

Hi Robyn! So, I did the SUYL Singles for my sister. Find it here: http://ktanner14.blogspot.com/2011/01/my-beautiful-sister-tiffanie-22-tulsa.html

I think my sister and your brother would be a good match! It looks like he is in the Tulsa area quite a bit! Leave me a comment if you think they would make a good match as well! :)

Carolyn said...

Wow!! Your brother sounds like the complete package! He has a lot a common with me, too bad I'm in VA though. I'm sure he will find someone amazing though! :)

Sammye Norvell said...

Robyn I need you to meet Ashlee. She works in my office in Oklahoma City and is an absolute delight....day in and day out. She is a very positive person and fun to be around. I met Ashlee at my church many months ago and was so impressed with her on our first visit that I said she had to come interview. She's a doll. Of course, I'm willing to give her up to move to St. Louis if need be! Anyway, she can be reached at adams.ashlee1@gmail.com. Or certainly look her up on FB Ashlee Adams. Best wishes to you and your little bro! Sam

Monique said...

Hi Robyn! Your brother Kyle seems just PERFECT for my best friend Lindy. She lives in Florida and is a 22 year old senior at UF. She is a passionate follower of Jesus and is looking for a great man of God to fall in love with! I really think they would be perfect together so please give Kyle her e-mail address, lindy1017@ufl.edu. I posted about her on my blog.
I'm praying it works out!! :)

Erin said...

How I Met Your Mother! My favorite. :) I live in Springfield, MO, and I posted a little "about me" on my blog. He sounds like a really great guy!

Ash said...

Hi Robyn,
My name is Ashlee and I am 24 from St. Louis. I saw your brother Kyle on Kelly's blog and was immediately smitten by his smile and seemingly sweet spirit. We definitely share similiar interests and ideals. I do have a posting as well. Feel free to check it out and pass it on to him!

Blessings,
Ashlee

Hi Robyn,

Your brother sounds great! I am 29 years old and live in the Peoria area in Illinois. I am actively involved in my church. I am a junior high youth sponsor and I lead a high school girls core group Bible study. I work in Human Resources at a manufacturing plant. I would be interesting in getting to know your brother if you think we would be a good match. Have a great day!

Hi Robyn!
I found your blog post from Kelly's Korner. I wasn't expecting to see anyone from St. Louis listed, but your brother sounds like a catch! I live in St. Louis (St. Charles specifically). I moved here from Colorado to go to grad school for my PhD. I have a great job, my own house and a generally pretty happy life - but I would love to find a great man to share the journey with. God works in all sorts of crazy ways so who knows if a blog comment could lead to love! I don't have a blog, but I would be more than happy to share more information with you or with Kyle if he is interested. You can email me at jenniecunningham@hotmail.com. PS. I love How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory!

Sarah said...

Kyle sounds great! I really admire the fact that he wanted to be financially stable before getting into a serious relationship--that is so important! My name is Sarah and I'm 23 and from Alabama. I graduated from The University of Alabama and am a 7th grade English teacher, and I love it!!! Feel free to email me for more questions or have Kyle!! It's sewiley25@gmail.com Thanks!!

katie said...

There are so many comments for your brother! But, I think my sister and your brother would be a good match!! I blogged about my sister today and linked up with Kelly's... my blog is philkatiebennett.blogspot.com
Check it out and see what you think!!

Stephanie said...

Hi! Well I have never done anything like this before. My mom wanted to set up a page for me on Kelly's Korner and I reluctantly agreed : ) But when she showed me your page for Kyle it really caught my attention. He seems like an awesome guy (well I guess that's stating the obvious, look how many comments he has!) I just got back from 3 years of missions work in Central America and am currently a first grade teacher in Tulsa. I'm #194. If you think he'd be interested, please pass it on!

katybraden said...

I am from MS which may be too far away but I would definitely be interested. My sister did a post for me at #267 on Kellys blog and my email is kcbraden@gmail.com

Mandy said...

Oh my, I can't believe I'm doing this but I think he is cute! I am #25 on the SUYL singles addition. Just throwin' a lil something out here to see what happens! I'm a 27-year-old nurse in Kansas City.

Mandy said...

Oh I hope I'm not accidentally commenting twice but I think Kyle is cute! I am #25 on the SUYL singles addition. I am a 27-year-old nurse in Kansas City. Just throwin' something out there to see how God works it all out!

Robyn said...

I just have to say, we have the same name, even spelled the same, so I think that alone should prove to you what kind of a girl I am ;) hehe. Anyway, your brother sounds like a great guy! I'd love to chat with him sometime if he's interested. I'm very open to moving...

Heather said...

I love the title of your post!

Thanks!
