The one about Harper's birthday bonanza!

This year Harper is going to be in the hospital on her birthday. So we went all out and had a big birthday weekend for her this past weekend since her birthday is going to end up being a wash. First Harper and I went and saw Frozen on Ice.

Me and Harper had such a good time at Frozen on Ice! It was just like the movie and so she was hanging on to every word and really just loved it. I spoiled her with cotton candy and a snow cone. Frozen on Ice was a really good show and I highly recommend it. If you have a Frozen fan then this is definitely a good show to go see.

On Saturday, we had her birthday party. It was a snowy mess so a lot of people couldn't make it, but it was still a great time. Harper was showered with gifts and she got a huge Frozen strawberry cake! She loves everything strawberry! Everyone had a great time visiting and celebrating and everyone made it home in one piece so we couldn't complain too much!

I can't believe my little girl is turning 4! It seems like just yesterday she was born. Expect a sappy piece on Thursday when we are spending her birthday in the hospital. I'm requesting lots of prayers and good thoughts for her surgery tomorrow. It's going to be a long day!

The one about the Dreft to go stain remover pen!

I was really excited on Thursday because I got a prize that I won for blogging about Dove in the mail. It was a super luxurious Dove bath robe and a full sized bottle of Dove Nutrium body wash.

The robe is super luxurious, but it has one major problem, it's white. I don't own white things because generally they are kid stain magnets. But I'd just received the Dreft to go stain remover pen, so I thought that I'd better give my white robe a try. And try it did. Within 30 minutes of putting on the robe I kid you not Tristan fell off the couch and bloodied his lip and got blood all over my super fancy robe. Yikes. Blood is one of those substances that is not easy to get out by any means. 

I pulled out the Dreft pen and hoped for the best but expected the worst. The Dreft pen has a couple of features, the stain removing liquid and then the pen also has teeth to scrub out the stain. I put it to work and magically, I was able to get the blood out of the robe. I have to say that I was seriously impressed! 

I may even get crazy and buy a white shirt! But I'd better not get too ahead of myself. I definitely suggest the Dreft pen for removing stains. 

NOTE: I received the Dreft pen for free, but the opinions are my own!
