Two Single Girls

I'm linking this post up to Kelly's Korner for her "Show Us Your Life - Singles". The point is for bloggers to use their own blogs to introduce "Singles" in their life and then link up to Kelly's blog so all the singles can browse thru the various posts. Kinda like Apparently Kelly's blog has been successful. She's done this Singles thing twice and there's been one marriage and a proposal and maybe a few serious relationships. Anyway, I talked to TWO favorite Singles in my life and they said, "Why Not?" So without further ado, here's "All My Single Ladies"...

DISCLAIMER - I imagine that it will be mostly girls reading these blogs and then calling their single guy friends to check out this or that blog about different girls. I had a hard time "marketing" my cousins as dating material versus really great girl friends.

I'm introducing you to Katy and Amanda. Both of these ladies are my cousins. One from my Mom's side and one from my Dad's side. Which means that though they are both so much alike they are not blood related!

Amanda, me and Katy

They both are intelligent independent women in their early thirties. Both girls were raised in loving Christian homes in Texas and inherited a legacy of faith in Jesus Christ. Katy and Amanda both have an incredible sense of humor and the ability to laugh at themselves. Travelling, reading and movies are things that they both enjoy.

I could blabber on and on about all their wonderful qualities but I want to zero in on what makes them unique from each other and from other girls on today's 'Singles' posts.

Katy lives in Illinois but travels home to Texas frequently. All the kids in our family love their Auntie Kate who is never too busy to play with them. Katy is honest and creative. Her niece calls her "Fancy Fancy" as she's a fashionista by her own right. Katy is always up for fun and has great ideas for parties and get-togethers. She's a good hostess making people feel welcomed and at home. Katy gives the best advice whether it's for fashion, travel or how to deal with friends. She always seems to say exactly what I need to hear. Katy is a prayer warrior and one of those people that if I called and needed something she'd move heaven and earth to help me.

Amanda lives in the DFW metroplex and has impeccable taste and style. She quite possibly has more friends than any person I know. People love to be around Amanda because she is an encourager and always makes people feel special. She spoils her nephews and helps so much when she's around our kids. I often hang up the phone after talking to Amanda and realize I know nothing of what's going on in her life because she'd asked me dozens of questions and I did all the talking. She genuinely has a servant's heart and not only recognizes a need but sees that it's met. She too, is a prayer warrior and will drop to her knees whenever asked.

I can't begin to tell you how much I love these two chicas. I feel like these short descriptions are an injustice to them but I'm no author!

They deserve only the very best so losers need not reply. ha! But if you're interested leave a comment with your email and we'll be in touch!
