This post was sponsored by Indiana’s Family of Farmers, but my words and love of the Indiana State Fair are 100% my own. For more information please see my disclosure policy.

Indiana State Fair 2014Yesterday my kids and I had a fun day with other bloggers at the Indiana State Fair, hosted by Indiana’s Family of Farmers. We enjoyed breakfast and milkshakes from Indiana Dairy and lunch from Indiana Beef, toured the newly renovated coliseum and so much more.

I’ve got both an Indiana State Fair ticket giveaway plus some great highlights to the Indiana State Fair that I wanted to share with you!

Orange Leaf Smoothie Sampling Event + Giveaway

by Ann-Marie on June 18, 2014

Orange Leaf Smoothie

My daughter’s softball team has finished their regular season games, and is headed into the tournament this weekend. At a fun adults vs. kids practice this week, the coach was ending the practice and had just a few minutes to run one last drill. He shouted out, “What do you girls want to do?” and one yelled, “Orange Leaf!” to which the rest of the team chimed in their agreement.

Orange Leaf Yogurt is a family favorite after softball as there’s a location just past our fields. My kids, of course, load up on toppings (their creations make no sense to their dad and I), and they seriously make a 5-napkin mess with drips of chocolate sauce and melting frozen yogurt.

Orange LeafNow that Orange Leaf has just introduced self-serve smoothies, I can sip on the fruity deliciousness while my kids get their sugar fix on gummy worms and Boba balls.

To celebrate the new Orange Leaf smoothie sensation, visit one of the 21 participating Indy and surrounding area Orange Leaf Yogurt locations this Saturday June 21st from 11am-4pm and enjoy a FREE 5 oz sample of new Orange Leaf’s new Smoothie. You can choose from one of two flavors:

  • Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie -A delicious blend of vanilla froyo, fresh milk, peanut butter and real bananas, this gluten-free Smoothie is a protein-packed, pick-me-up treat.

Mini Marathon Expo

If you missed my Friday Freebies this morning on B105.7, here’s the rundown!

  • I’d love to encourage everyone to go downtown today and take in all the free festivities at the Mini Marathon expo. It’s at the Indiana Convention Ccenter until 9:00 tonight. Bring the whole family to enjoy a race simulator and other interactive activities. As a sponsor of the Mini Marathon, McDonald’s will have a “Farm to Table” exhibit where you can learn more about where McDonald’s food products come from. I’m looking forward to my first mini marathon experience, just the 5K portion – baby steps y’know.
  • And after the weekend’s over, Monday May 5th is otherwise known as Cinco De Mayo, and you can stop into any participating Moe’s Southwest Grill location for a free guac!
