I was contacted, and asked to participate in a campaign entitled, #unplugged. I don't do everything I am asked to participate in, but this one seemed worthy, and like a challenge I wanted to be a part of, and and something I wanted my family to try out.
I was sent a shirt, from Creative Expressions Inc. Isn't it cute? You can win one of your own, directions below.
I announced on Instagram and Facebook the night before, that we were going to be unplugged as a family the next day. I had visions of wearing my cute new shirt as we went sledding or snowshoeing, and doing other fun outdoor activities as a family.
But, I woke up feeling horrible!!! It was all I could do to go downstairs to get some breakfast. Why does my hair look darker when I haven't gotten ready? The unplugged shirt pics are from the next day.
I knew I wasn't going to do much of anything active with my kids, so I decided to try to do something productive from my bed. I decided to organize my recipes.
It took all the energy I had, and I am so glad I was able to sit still without any other distractions long enough to do it. This has been on my list forever! Being unplugged was a great opportunity for getting this done!
The baby started missing me, so he brought some toys in to play with me while I was in bed. Yes, that's a s'more with pickles and french fries. He is a creative cook!
I drug myself out of bed for about 20 minutes that night to play a game with everyone.
I lasted through two games, and had to get back in bed.
I kind of felt bummed, but in talking to my kids, they had a nice day without the technology, and I actually stayed off the internet the next few days, and it was a nice break! It was surprisingly easier the next day.
Okay, so, let's talk about that shirt (and the closeups of my chest - sorry, that's where the printing is)! I love it - the shirt, and love having the ability to design your own shirt with a company like Creative Expressions Inc. They offer services in embroidery, screen printing, and other promotional products. Check them out! I am thinking I might want to order a few trucker hats with a custom logo.
You can win your own #unplugged shirt!
