Happy Veteran's Day!

Happy Veteran's Day!

Happy Veteran’s Day!  As a kid, to me, this was just another day to get out of school.   But, now that I’m an adult and my husband is in the Air Force, the holiday obviously has a much greater meaning to me and I appreciate the significance behind this annual day of recognition.  With Veteran’s Day today, as well as election day last week, it’s seems only appropriate to show our American pride. 

Did you know that ALL of Lifetime’s sheds are made right here in America and are backed by a 10-year warranty?  My Lifetime shed was delivered last week and one of the first things that caught my eye on the packaging was the American flag with “Made in the USA” printed under it.  (Stay tuned to future posts for my shed building progress and videos!)    Yep, made in the good ‘ole USA…. in the state of Utah to be exact.    That’s pretty cool, huh?

Lifetime Products is proudly headquartered in Clearfield, Utah. That’s where the owner started the company almost 25 years ago.  So, on this patriotic holiday, I thought I would enlighten you with a few more “proud to be an American” facts that should make you feel good about your purchase and proud to own a Lifetime Product:

  • ALL Lifetime sheds are made in the USA.
  • ALL Lifetime folding chairs are made in the USA.
  • ALL Lifetime trailers are ASSEMBLED in the USA.
  • ALL Lifetime yard carts are ASSEMBLED in the USA.
  • ALL Big Stuff (made by Lifetime) playsets are made in the USA.
  • 98% of Lifetime basketball products are made in the USA.

And, of course, manufacturing all of these products translates into jobs, jobs, jobs! Lifetime employs 1,550 people in Utah, and 2,200 worldwide!

Now that’s just good news!  I hope you enjoy and appreciate this important American holiday today.  And, to all of our soldiers who are protecting our country and our freedom (and those who have done so in the past), THANK YOU!

My favorite products from Lifetime- 4x2 Table, 30” Personal Table, Chair, Youth Kayak, and Wheelbarrow.  Although, our Shed and Yard Cart are pretty close favorites, too!

How Do You Move A 500lb Bouncy Castle?
A few weeks ago my little girl turned 4 years old. We celebrated with a Tinkerbell themed party at our house. The birthday girl loved the Tinkerbell cake I made, and the other party girls were thrilled with the handmade Tinkerbell fairy skirts I hid in the trees for them and the sparkle pixie dust I sprayed on each of them. But, despite my best fairy efforts, the true hit of the party was the bouncy castlethat my husband decided we "absolutely needed" to rent at very the last minute.Sigh.He was right,the kids (and some adults) jumped non-stop. If you've never rented a bouncy castle, these things are huge and heavy! When they loaded it into our truck at the rental facility, they actually used a forklift. Unfortunately, we don't have the luxury of a forklift at our house. So, how in the world did we manage to get the 500lb def...
