Truth be told I am a nervous Nelly today.  
Monday we went in for testing for my daughter and it did not go well. 

You may or may not have heard but my daughter has severe allergies. 
My friends tell me I'm the brave one but really they don't know, it's not bravery, it's that
I am the one who will pull any crazy move, any crazy hat trick, any crazy stunt to keep my girl safe and, of course, alive. 

That sometimes means driving like I were Matt Damon in a Bourne movie
or jumping through hoops like I were an American Gladiator,
or strategizing like Olivia Pope
and quietly breaking down after my best power moment like Alicia Florrick.

AND then... I have to negotiate with a 5-year-old to do her most terrifying thing ever.
Get a shot. 
You see she associates shots as Epi-Pens. 
The thickest, hardest most painful thing in the world.

A scratch test is not an Epi-Pen.  
But boy you'd never know. 

Monday we spent 3 1/2 hours trying to get her to do it. 
And then they sent us home. 
We got the blood test.  8 Vials of blood but not a scratch test. 

So this is where I am officially asking for your help. 
Whether it's a prayer or warm wishes.  An email good luck or shoutout above.  
However, you send over really good karma and a whole lot of magic I will take it for the grabbing. 
B/c I need it. 
And I am asking for your help.

Manage This.

You guys were so intrigued with how Power Couples do to manage it all, I looked up some more resources for you and thought this old post was particularly great!

--> They "Leapfrog" aka take turns in whose career comes first.
--> They take time for one another, specifically.  #hellooodatenight
--> They share or outsource chores!
--> They make an effort to be flexible.


--> Celebrate the weekend!  If you have been feeling off this week you were not alone, this cosmic event may have contributed to why!


Quick side note from Ashleigh.  Here are my most favorite tools ever.

  • For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings.  My walk always becomes a power walk after listening. 
  • To focus during the day I love to focus@will.  They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does.  I blare the classical music.  I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
  • Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away.  She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money!  Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny.  Not. going. to. lie.

PS- We think you may be interested in these too!
