Dear Family – a Letter from Dad

Bill Cosby had it right. Yes, many of us dads are the “fun ones,” the “jokesters,” and the “dress up dolls.” There are fathers all over the world “who get things they can’t use and . . . don’t want.” With Father’s Day coming up I wanted to offer some suggestions for things that Dad actually wants:

WantDeck Box. Give dad a Lifetime Deck Box so he has somewhere to quickly put away all of the kid’s toys left on the lawn. Keep them safe so he doesn't hit them with the lawn mower anymore. So, really . . . it’s a gift that keeps giving. 
Don’t Want – Another light-up, pink, paisley, or superhero tie. It’s just another burp rag for the baby to spit up on.

Want – New shed to store all the yard tools in. You know you all keep telling us to put the tools away.
Don’t Want – “Cute” stuffed animal driver cover to hang on his golf bag. In case you haven’t forgotten, we’re not perpetual 6-year-olds. We’re men! *grunt*

WantHorizontal shed to store the kid’s bikes in – and get them out of the garage. The more organization, the better, right?
Don’t Want – One of those visors with fake hair attached to it. Bald is beautiful.

WantKayak or paddleboard for taking to the lake. Everybody wins!
Don’t Want – Nose hair trimmer. Well, not unless we ask for it. We’re not complete animals. Besides, it’s not nose hair, it’s part of my mustache and mustaches are manly.

WantPicnic table for serving his masterfully cooked BBQ. We’ll gladly give all you moms a night off from cooking.
Don’t Want – Car Wax. Believe me, we have plenty.

WantBasketball hoop. Again . . . it’s for the kids . . . really.
Don’t Want – Coffee mug. We appreciate the “World’s Greatest Dad” compliment, but we're still bying for the World's Greatest NBA player title.

Take a look at the clock. It's 4:00 and the clubs are still open! Head over to pick up one of our great Lifetime products for Dad this year, and let him know just how much you love him.

Happy Blogging Birthday!
I cant believe its 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. Dont 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 wasnt 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, its 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 Lifetime products almost every day. And, as youve probably noticed, I only use...
Eeny Meeny Miny Mo - Picking Our Lifetime Basketball Hoop
Cute house. Nice yard. But, something's still missing. Take a closer look. Yes, our big three-car driveway is just screaming for a basketball hoop! Don't you agree? :) As some of you may know, my husband is a pilot in the military and we have recently moved - again. This time to beautiful Colorado. I'm thrilled to report that after 12 years of working for Lifetime in some manner, wefinallyhave a house that has a driveway perfect for a Lifetime basketball hoop. It turns out that finding a great driveway to play basketball is the easy part. Now, we have to decide exactly where we want to put the basketball system, whether we want an in-ground or portable system, and what model and features are best for us. First things first. Location. After a quick survey of our driveway, my husband and I decided that placing the system cen...
