Donut Worry, Be Happy

I think children are the best teachers in the world and while us moms are busy trying to teach them all they need to know in life they teach us so much more.  My girls have taught me to break out in dance whenever a song comes on, laugh at every funny moment, don't take life too seriously, love super hard and unconditionally and every day is special.  Every now and then I remember to break the rules and have dessert for dinner or let the girls stay up past bedtime for a movie night.  Life's too short, make memories now.

Life's an adventure and the clothes need to match the vibe.  The girls are just like me and love any new item of clothing (Kevin asks all the time, "What are you creating?!?!").  These vibrant and playful donuts shirts are perfect for their personalities and for Spring.  I snagged them from Chaser Brand which is one of my favorite spots for the girls clothing.  They have the cutest graphic prints and the softest materials.  They make mama happy and the girls smile: win!  At the end of the day remember, "Donut Worry, Be Happy!"

Spring Styles for Little Divas

There's nothing better than having a sister but cute clothes do come pretty close.  We've been DYING for Spring and all it brings including the wardrobe.  The warm sun came out a few times in the last two weeks and we tried to soak it up.  The girls have been begging to wear their new outfits from Flapdoodles for what feels like forever but I keep telling them it's just too cold.  They squealed with delight when I finally let them wear them; only girls!!!

I love their new outfits as much as the girls for their bright colors, soft material and easy going style.  The affordable prices are the cherry on top and you can shop the line by clicking below.

Whole Foods Beauty Brunch

One of my favorite parts to authoring a blog is the opportunities it creates for me to meet other amazing people and connect with local businesses.  Last weekend I was invited to attend a Beauty Brunch at Whole Foods in order to connect with other influencers and also learn about clean beauty.  To be honest I was pretty naive about products and their ingredients.  I learned that the FDA does not regulate the beauty industry and so Whole Foods has taken it upon themselves to ban over 400 ingredients from their shelves; they only allow the best products in their store.  It was such a fun and informative day filled with networking, eating the most delicious grub and treats and stocking up on the best beauty products.  See below to get your own swag bag...

Whole Foods is hosting a fabulous giveaway right now so check out my Instagram to enter.  These were the products I took home in my swag bag and 6 lucky winners will get one of their own.  Thank you Whole Foods and Amanda for hosting such a great event!

National Pi(e) Day

It's National Pi(e) Day and we're celebrating with pizza of course and not only am I off the hook for cooking but I also don't have to leave my couch because I'm ordering with @ubereats. They are offering $5 pizzas to anyone who orders today and your day gets even better because I have a free delivery code for your first Uber Eats order {REALHOUSEWIFEFRESNO} 

Believe or not today was my first time using Uber Eats and I was impressed with how easy it was to order.  I also loved that I could track my delivery so I knew exactly when it was arriving.  So get your ordering on and enjoy a pizza for $5!!!!!

The Best of Fresno

Most of you know me but in case you don't I'm Annie Foreman, the founder and creative director of The Real Housewife of Fresno.  I'm a wife to my high school sweetheart, mom to two beautiful girls, Realtor and lifestyle blogger.  I was born and raised in Fresno and couldn't wait to get out of town as soon as I graduated high school.  I moved to LA to attend UCLA and I quickly learned that So Cal was not for me.  I didn't fit in, didn't like the lifestyle and hated the traffic.  It took me moving away to learn how much Fresno can provide.  It offers most of the amenities of a big city but still has a hometown feel.  It's only a 1-3 hour drive to the mountains, snow, ocean, SF or LA.  The cost of living is phenomenal and the lifestyle is slower paced but not boring.  The people are down to earth, warm and welcoming.  Fresno has been and likely will always be my home.  

One of my favorite things to share on the blog is everything I love in, around and about Fresno.  I believe in supporting the local community especially small businesses.  But don't get me wrong there are some amazing chains that are exceptional and still benefit our local community.  Plus they are all staffed by people who live here.

One of my favorite activities are the free local community events hosted by Lululemon Fresno.  At one of these events I learned you could purchase a tank and get Fresno screen printed on the front.  I was bursting with excitement because Fresno is my town!  While I was grabbing my Fresno tank I couldn't help myself and stock up on some other amazing gear {shopping details below}.  

Jumping for joy to share my favorite local spots, activities and more:

At the beginning of the year I found High Fitness and fell in love.  It's a high energy aerobics class set to fun music.  I almost feel like I'm dancing instead of working my booty.  My new gear is perfect for these high intensity workouts.

This lightweight long sleeve tee is perfect for the beginning of a workout and heading home.  The back slit is my favorite part!  I was hesitant to pay the lulu premium but seriously once you have a pair there is no comparison.  The leggings are uber amazing!  They suck everything in but aren't uncomfortable.  The sports bra is my current favorite because it adds so much personality.  I just grabbed these Nike's and I'm in love.  The gold detail is why I grabbed them but they are also comfortable and light weight.

Ladies Paint Night at Pinot's Palette

Last night I had the pleasure of attending my first paint night at Pinot's Palette along with some of the ladies from Fresno Fab Females.  We enjoyed a private event in their Cabernet Room where an instructor walked us through the Pinot's Poppin' Peonies painting.  I didn't expect how much fun it would be to paint, sip wine and laugh with girlfriends.  Pinot's is a beautiful facility with an expansive public party room, full wine bar, private room and wonderful staff.  

I have zero artistic ability so I was stressed about painting such a beautiful piece of art but the instructors are trained to make the experience fun, stress free and easy to follow along.  Don't get me wrong my final painting is no masterpiece but I'm pretty surprised with what I was able to accomplish.  

You can attend a public class at Pinot's Palette for just under $40 or you can set up a private party if you have at least 12 people.  Check out their event calendar to see what class you would like to take.  All classes are for 21 and older since they serve alcohol but Pinot's Palette has a partnership with Round Table pizza and will start offering classes for children along with a pizza night.

If you're looking for a super fun night out and different experience I highly recommend you sign up for a paint night at Pinot's Palette!

Best of all was spending the night with wonderful women!  Fresno Fab Females is a local group of social media influencers who are girl bosses and entrepreneurs.  We get together to network, bounce ideas around, experience what our community has to offer and just get a night away.  Check out these wonderful women:
