happy 1st birthday!

Isn't Romie cute?! My friend, Lauren B, first gave me the idea to use baby clothes as dog shirts instead of buying those overpriced shirts the pet stores sell. Today, I picked up a cheap newborn-size onesie at Target for Romie's Birthday. It was only $3, so I knew Josh wouldn't mind me spending unnecessary money on my dog. When I got home, I cut off the bottom of the onesie, and broke out my sewing machine. I hemmed up the end to make it a cute little shirt and I'm really happy with it!

I know this is pretty pathetic, but at least I am resourceful in my spare time! J

Happy 1st Birthday, Romie!


  1. Happy Birthday Romie! Too cute!


  2. Oh, that is cute! Great idea! Happy birthday Romie!

  5. So cute! Never thought of that. Good job ;)

  6. cute pup! I don't think I've commented before, but I love your blog!

    I dress up my akita mix in my t-shirts.. She hates it, but I don't care =)

  7. Romie, was adorable in her little sunshine tee today! I hope you all enjoy the rest of this holiday/birthday weekend! Xo

  8. Too cute!!!! Is there anything you can't do??? :)

  9. I feel bad I didn't wish Romie a happy birthday when I saw her. Tell her I said Happy Belated Birthday. =)

  10. Happy Belated B-Day Romie! Your new outfit is just precious. Lauren, another good place to get cheap "dog" clothes is the local goodwill or mission. I go there and purchase the kid shirts and things for my basset hounds and modify them as well. Have a good day! Sherri

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
