Halloween is such a fun time of year! Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! So last night, my husband and I set out on our pumpkin carving adventure. My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Over the years, he has helped me get more and more into it as well. Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didn’t really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table. We live in a smaller apartment, so this is the perfect table for us. It is super easy to store and fits perfectly in our small kitchen. I also have a couple Lifetime chairs which are great for this kind of mess – while still being comfo... More

Happy Manufacturing Day! You might be wondering, why are we so excited to celebrate Manufacturing Day? Because that’s what we do! For over 25 years, we’ve worked to turn raw steel coils and plastic pellets into products each of us can use everyday! I’ve been a supporter of Lifetime for years. Long before I ever worked here. My basketball hoop growing up was a Lifetime hoop. My parents always pulled out their Lifetime tables and chairs when we had a get together. That’s what we do at Lifetime. We make stuff for you to use every day! We are proud and passionate about manufacturing awesome products. Manufacturing is such an important part of American society. It is a source of millions of jobs and the products we all use every day. Today has even received some involvement from President Obama. Yesterday,... More

Building Our Lifetime Shed – Step 2
Since its been over a week since I last blogged, youre probably hoping that building our shed really didnt really take this long! Dont worry, it didnt. I just havent had a chance to sit down and write about it amidst all of our Thanksgiving festivities, preparations for family visiting, and Christmas decorating. As youll recall, after almost a full days work, we finally had our ground leveled and our wood platform built for our shed. We strategically planned to build our 8x5 Lifetime shed on Veterans Day since Mike would have the day off, but the kids would both be in preschool. We were under a ticking time clock five hours of uninterrupted, kid-free work time. Hopefully, we could build the shed before it rained or before we had to leave pick up the kids! We started at 9:30am. The first few steps required simply snapping to...
Dare We Hope?
Today, here in Utah, its warm and sunny. Buds on my flowers and trees are starting to emerge. Snow is harder and harder to find. Dare we hope that Spring has arrived? I love being outside, and look forward to preparing the yard for summertime. Part of that preparation for me this year is getting a new table for the deck. Our previous table was given to us and we learned the hard way that it isnt snow and water friendly. Basically the table top is sitting in a heap of rubble on the deck. My wife and I like to hide from the kids and have breakfast outside. So I think this year I am going to get the Lifetime Bistro Set. If you havent seen this yet, its pretty nice. Made from Polystyrene, which is a type of plastic that looks like wood, this table is definitely snow and water friendly. It comes with a table and two chairs. Sin...
Summer is Here!
As a kid, my summers were always lazy and unstructured. My sisters and I were always sent outside in the morning, and the day was spent trying to find activities to do. My point is, summer is here and it's the perfect time to purchase some Lifetime playground equipment. One of my kids favorite games to play on our playset at home is Fish Out of Water. I sit with my eyes closed, and if I think one of my kids are off the playset I yell, Fish out of water! If they get caught, we switch and they have to try and catch me. Kids love to get a break from school during the summer, and we love our Lifetime playset. The best place for imaginative play and exercise is the safety of your own backyard. The great thing about Lifetime is our playsets are made to last. The equipment stands up to the wear and tear of your children. Also, Lif...
