Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game

Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game

Tailgating at the BCS Championship Game

If there’s one thing I love, it’s college football season.  Having attended a large public university where football is its own institution, Saturdays are always spent in front of the TV watching the NCAA action.  I hadn’t had the pleasure of actually going to a game – and better yet, enjoying the tailgating festivities – in more than five years until recently.

I might as well spill it now.  I’m a Gator fan – I bleed orange and blue.   And now is as good a time as any to be a Gator fan.  In case you don’t follow college football, the Gators ranked second this year and claimed a spot to play the number one ranked Oklahoma Sooners in this year’s Bowl Championship Series game in Miami, FL.  Essentially, this is the Super Bowl of college football. 

As a Florida native, I knew I had to make it to this game.  A couple friends and I were able to get tickets and spent the day tailgating at Dolphin Stadium.  We had all the usual fixings – wings, burgers, hot dogs, drinks and of course, the perfect Gator fanfare everywhere.  We broke out our Lifetime tables and chairs for easy set up and break down.  The best part was the people who were tailgating next to us.  They had a Gator cake that rested alone on its very own Lifetime height-adjustable table.  I can’t think of a better thing to put on a Lifetime table.  After tailgating all day, I was fortunate to have scored lower level, 16th row seats where I watched the Florida Gators beat the Oklahoma Sooners with a final score of 24-14.  National Champions!!

I guess this is where I should apologize to all the University of Utah fans.  I’m sorry the Utes were “robbed” this season.  I support a playoff system.  I honestly do.  I also support my Gators and still think the outcome would have been the same.

Where Do You Store Your Lifetime Tables & Chairs?
I know, I know. It's been forever since I last blogged, but I'm back! Back from where? Oh, just the usual, life in general...family visits, taking the kids to school and soccer, cleaning house, whatever. Although, I did squeeze in a quick vacation to Cancun which was soooo relaxing and fun!! Anyway, to those of you who have missed my regular weekly posts (thanks, Mom), your wait is over! :) So, the other day when I was getting out my vacuum cleaner, I happened to see my Lifetime folding chairs and began to wonder. (Yes, Im infamous for random association-thinkingyou know, where one thought leads to another to another to another.) Anyway, my first thought was that Lifetime folding chairs are super comfortable. But, geez, compared to other cheap, flimsyfolding chairs, they sure are big. (Obviously, this is a great feature whe...

What to Get a Tween for Christmas? A Lifetime Youth Kayak!
Are you still trying to figure what to get a Tween or a "kid who has everything" on your Christmas list?Trust me, I know how you feel. As a mom of an 8-year-old, I completely understand how tough it is to come up with gift ideas for those ages when they aren't really into characters or toys anymore. But, if you have a child who loves being active in the water, I have a perfect idea for you - a Lifetime Youth Kayak! My family tested the pink Lifetime Wave Kayak this summer and we absolutely loved it! Between my kids and my nieces, we had ages 4, 8, 9, and 11 using it. And, I even tried it, too! I must say, we were amazed at how quickly all of the kids got the hang of paddling and maneuvering when they had a kayak and paddle their own size. We have sit-inside adult kayaks that they have tried in the past, but sitting down in t...
