Our Moms

Jared and I are both lucky (like everybody I'm sure) to have great moms. The funny thing is, both of our moms are very similar in personality. Actually both of our dads are similar too... except my dad, bless his sweet heart, is way more obnoxious sometimes!! Haha, just kiddin pops I love you and your craziness! Anyway, back to our moms. I know this is a day late, but I wanted them both to know how much we love them. I've been into lists lately, so here are some tidbits about both. Oh and sorry these are the only pictures I could find of them. They are mostly from our wedding, I really need to be better about taking pictures at family get togethers.

Carolyn (Jared's Mom)

1- She makes the BEST cinnamon rolls in the whole wide world!!!
2- She likes to go to garage sales and estate sales
3- She likes to buy lots of cool stuff for her house when she is at said sales (She found a sweet crock-pot for Jared and I that only cost 10 bucks!)
4- She really likes to drink water, best part of dinner
5- She grew up in Centerville Utah
6- She's run the STG Marathon like 2 or 3 times, crazy!!
7- The first time I met her, she said something like, "So I hear you're dating Jared a little bit??" I was like, "Uh...yeah if that's okay." haha she laughed and said "Of course that's cool!" She made us the best homemade lasagna that day and I've loved her ever since! ;)
8- She has a very beautiful alto voice
