Unplugged Campaign and a giveaway!

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!

Just enter a comment below, telling me what you would do if you were unplugged for a day. You can also get an extra entry, by following me on instagram restlessrisa_risabaker and commenting and inviting friends to follow.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Have a Happy and Creative Day!

I love this. I've been trying to do this with my kiddos for the last two weeks....a technology detox! And it feels so good! Love your photos of your family playing together :) that's what we do too when we unplug!
