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.
