Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness

It's one of my favorites times of the day, bedtime!  And I'm talking my own, not necessarily the [sometimes maddening, sometimes sweet] routine with the four kiddos. When those little angels have gotten past their second/third/forth wind and are finallly sleeping, I actually pat myself on the back and say "Nice work, Amy, you did it!"  While I love the light that they bring to my life, these quiet evening hours are moments that I look forward to for ME.  This is what it generally looks like - vegging out to a little DVR or Netflix (my current favs: So… Read More >>

It's baaaaack...  We live in one of the top 25 snowiest cities in the U.S. Many years we're 1st or 2nd on the list, something we Erie-ites take pride in.  Come on, ya gotta love that lake effect snow!
