Kids have a way of doing things that just make you smile.  It's always surprising and amusing how even the tiniest of tots can be pretty resourceful.  Take, for instance, my daughter's witty idea a few weeks ago when we visited my family in Ohio.  While we were up at their lake house, we ate almost every meal outside to enjoy the lake view and the beautiful weather.  Plus, with six adults and five kids, we simply had more table space outside than inside.  Typically, the adults would always sit at my parents' patio table and chairs while the kids would eat at the 6' Lifetime picnic table.  Even though it wasn't a children's Lifetime picnic table, all of the kiddos could reach just fine, except for my two-year-old daughter, Alyssa.  She loves being like the ...

Out of the blue, two people have mentioned table clips to me in the past few weeks.  It's not exactly a popular conversation topic or product, so I'm taking that as a sign that I should blog about them!  Wanna hear something else weird...both people were named Nancy.  Good thing I'm not superstitious.  :) My aunt Nancy was telling me how her friend was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime table to hold her material in place for quilting.  Hmmm...clever idea for you quilter's out there, huh?!  And, one of our blog readers, said she was looking for table clips to fit her Lifetime tables that she uses in her restaurant with skirting on them. Just so you know, the edges of most Lifetime banquet tables are thicker than traditional wooden folding banquet tables, which makes it a little harder ... More

I can't believe it's been one year already since I wrote my first blog for Lifetime365.com.  I have to admit, back when the folks at Lifetime first asked me if I was interested in blogging, I was a bit hesitant.  Don't get me wrong, I was super excited they asked me since I am a former Lifetime employee and I LOVE writing.  It was a perfect fit.  But, I wasn't quite sure how I would ever come up with enough topics about Lifetime products from my daily life to blog one to two times a week.  Well, it turns out that when you really like something, it's pretty easy to talk (er, blog) about it non-stop!  Kind of like how people can go on and on and on about their kids.  :)  Until I started this little project, I honestly never realized how many times and ways I use Lifet...

Summer is quickly winding down.  But, thankfully, August is one of the hottest months so there are still plenty of days left to squeeze in some last minute authentic summer fun.  Here in Texas, it's been crazy hot.  Ok, insanely hot – something unbelievable like 35 days over 100 degrees before August even started!  I was tired of simply heading to the pool or waterpark to stay cool, so the other day I surprised my kids with some good ol' fashioned water balloons.  Sure, it took twice as long to fill them up as it did to throw them, but it was worth it to see the smiles on their faces and hear their giggles.  My son had fun trying to throw them at me, while my daughter just liked dropping them on the grass and watching them pop. I grew up playing with water balloons by having a si... More

Okay, so the big boys from the pro's won't actually be in your backyard, but you can deck your yard out to look every bit as professional. First off you're going to want to pick up a 98874 Mammoth In-Ground Basketball System from BuyLifetime.com. This setup is huge (72-inches) and professional quality just like you've likely seen in High Schools, Colleges, and even some professional sports teams. Once you've got your 98874 Mammoth you need to decide whether or not you you want a half-court or full- court game. The obvious answer if you want a full-court experience is to buy two 98874 Mammoth systems. That may not be an option for you, so why not consider a portable basketball system? With a portable basketball system you can wheel it to where the action is at game time, then wheel it away for ... More

I picked up my son's registration packet for kindergarten yesterday. (Still can't believe my baby is going to kindergarten. Sniff, sniff. But, that's a story for another day!) Geez, how many forms can they make us fill out? So overwhelming and seemingly redundant in many ways. Amongst the huge stack of papers, guidelines, and forms was the obligatory school supply list. Wow, so much for just needing to buy a backpack, pencils, and notebook anymore, huh? The kindergarten supply list has nearly 20 items on it! Crazy! Personally, I was one of those nerdy kids that always got fired up about "back to school" time because, being the organizer that I am, I couldn't wait to pick out all of my new school supplies, especially my new Trapper Keeper! Ironically though, my husband came home from the store just t... More

I Love My New Garden Caddy
Gone are the days of having to load up my wheelbarrow or other container with tools from the shed, only to arrive at the spot in my yard I am working on and not have what I need. You know how it isyou end up spending half of your time in the yard going back and forth to the shed to get what you forgot the first time. That is, providing you can find it in the shed. Because if youre like me, you havent organized your tools very well, either. I used to go back and forth, getting the stuff I needed before I was able to get to work. And when I was working I would inevitably set down one tool somewhere to use another, and then forget where I put the first tool. On one occasion, not exaggerating here, I was working with a rake. Two different times after I had laid the rake down, I stepped on it and had it swing up to hit me in the ...
