Instagram ~ Dogs

I don't know if I have mentioned or not, but I love Instagram so much! I've decided for those of you who don't have Instagram or haven't followed me yet (mestes225) shouldn't miss out on the pictures I get. Even better I have a husband who understands and supports my obsession of taking pictures. :)
My adorable Guapo soaking up the sun. He loves to lay outside in the grass.
Then there are those moments when I go outside without him and he looks out the door like I've abandoned him.
Another moment in disbelief that I abandoned him and went outside without him.
This is Precious. She's my MIL dog. It's not often she will let me actually get a picture of her face.
Sometimes I catch her snoozing though and snap one.
I think she's sticking her tongue out at me assuming I wouldn't put the picture on Instagram if she did.....she was wrong!

I Made It ~ Pinterest Inspired!

There were a few yummy treats we had to try that we had found on Pinterest and I must say they are both delicious!!

The first one I have no idea what it's called but it's delicious and super easy to make!
What you need:
Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Brownie Mix (Plus ingredients to make the Brownies)

Place your cookie dough in muffin pan and spread out evenly on the bottom and then add your peanut butter cup.

If you light grease around the edges after you put the cookie in it comes out much easier. After you've mixed your brownie batter layer it on top of your cookie.

Bake at 350 for 18 minutes and you get this deliciousness!

I allowed mine to cool in the pan before taking a fork and going around the edges. Then they just popped right out.

Oven Baked Smore's!
What you'll need:
Crescent rolls
Chocolate Chips
Mini Marshmallows

Flatten out your crescent roll just a little and put the chocolate chips and marshmallows inside. Roll up and pinch edges good. Some will still escape a little. Bake as directed for crescent rolls.
They are best while warm tho we just threw them in the microwave for 10 seconds the next day!

National Mobility Awareness Month

The month of May is the first National Mobility Awareness Month. I think for the most part that mobility is something that we all take for granted, yet can be taken away from us at any time. I know I haven't until now, put much thought into what life would be like if I had mobility issues, or how it would impact the lives of my loved ones.

Statistics state that over 18 million people have mobility issues, and 6 million of them being veterans. Being from a military family I really want to make sure that our veterans are cared for along with all disabled people. What better way than to raise awareness and keep these beautiful people mobile in every way.

The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association will be celebrating all month and teaching people how to stay mobile with handicap accessible vans. NMEDA is also holding a online contest giving 3 winners a new customized wheelchair accessible vehicle that will be fitted to their specific needs.

When a person is impacted with mobility issues it also impacts their family members. Having a handicap van suited to their needs will keep them more mobile and make it easier on their caregiver to get them around. Nobody should miss out on the joys of the world because they are disabled and can't get to a destination. By making more people aware of their issues and what struggles they face and educating them on their options it may make their world a little more bearable and mobile.
