Our American Roots

A proud American manufacturer.

usa-flag.jpgDuring this time of the year with all the barbeques, fireworks, apple pies, and small-town parades that feature one lame local advertisement after another (did I just say that?),  it’s easy to look over the reason for the wonderful holiday we’ve reduced to “The 4th of July,” or INDEPENDENCE DAY as I prefer to call it.

This is a great country. Not only have any of my grandparents and long-past relatives fought for the freedoms and liberty we have, but I’ve been blessed with the ability to be raised in this beautiful country—diverse and unique as it is.

From the very beginning, it’s been a country of promise and opportunity for many—and, from our founding, Lifetime Products has been a proud American manufacturer.

Like many before us, and during our beginnings, we started out in a family garage in Utah. As we’ve grown, we’ve seen the benefits of being a U.S.-based company. From the many people we’ve been able to employ, the boost that local manufacturing has on the economy, and more.

I think I can safely say that Lifetime, as a large family corporation, feels just as strongly about this country as I personally do. It’s been my pleasure to listen to Lifetime’s upper management as they’ve spoken about their responsibility to stay in this country, employ American citizens, and provide high-quality products for our customers.

Not to mention that fact that we make products the way they should me made—with strength and the ability to last for years.  Because this is America! Because we love this country!

(cue dramatic, swelling, patriotic music)

No, I’m not going to start reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. But, we are proud of this country, and our small beginnings. Over 25 years ago we started off as a small business that employed 15 people, and we’re now a global company, employing over 1500 American citizens.

This is our home. And in the immortal words of Bob Dylan, we “ain’t goin’ nowhere.”

Position at Lifetime Products: Product Marketing Administrator. I am the copywriter and administrator for the marketing department—writing copy for ads, scripts for videos, editing copy, and just about anything else that’s needed of me.  I get to write and edit for a living…it’s pretty much a dream come true!

How long at Lifetime Products: Since May 2012

Topics I blog about: Lifestyle and News

Favorite products from Lifetime: I love being outdoors!  Most of my family vacations while growing up were camping or fishing trips of some sort, and so I absolutely love our kayaks and tent trailers.  There’s just something amazing about getting away from the loud noise of regular life and entering a place that’s peaceful just with family or friends, whether it’s grand mountains or a mirrored lake.  But I'm definitely itching to get my hands on quite a long list of Lifetime Products.

On a typical Saturday afternoon you can find me: My Saturdays consist of at least five things—errands & cleaning, hiking, reading, writing, and spending time with family & friends.  I’m a big fan of relaxing, and the reading and writing is like a mini vacation; a chance for me to go into another world and spend time with my other “friends” for a short while.  Sometimes that relaxation extends into my family and friends time as I catch up on new movies or television shows…I don’t even dare list all the shows I’m fanatic about (Vampire Diaries, Fringe, New Girl, and believe me when I say the list goes on...).   But most of all, living in Utah gives me a plethora of hiking trails.  Taking an hour or two to get away is just the recharge I need.

My favorite escape: BOOKS.  I’ve purchased (shhhh) about $300 worth of new books in just two months and read about twenty of them so far.

Other blogs/websites I can’t get enough of:  I’m a self-diagnosed Facebook addict, but I love reading friend’s blogs, MSN Wonderwall (Yes, I’m a celebrity gossip enthusiast), GoodReads, Barnes and Nobel, Pinterest, and GrammarGirl (a grammar must-know!), and of course my own writing/book review blog: WritingMindCelebrities.blogspot.com.

Bouncy Good Time!
Last year was a great year for me. I got married in September, and am loving this new adventure! Our wedding day turned out just the way we wanted. It was perfect. Although my wedding day was the best day of my life, we ended up having a pretty great time the night before as well. My husband and I are both pretty laid-back, casual people. So the night before, instead of having a formal dinner or a fancy rehearsal party or reception, we ended up just having a big bash with family and friends at my parents house. I dont think many people can say that they had a huge bouncy slide, snow cone machine, and childrens bouncy castle at their wedding party! But we did, and it was a blast! Although people ended up with sore muscles, plastic burns, and scuffed knees, everyone sure had a great time and I wouldn't have changed it for anyth...
A table perfect for all his projects. Perfect Father’s Day Gifts!
Having trouble finding the perfect gift for your dad? Well, if your dad is anything like my dad, a folding table is the perfect option. I know that on the surface, a folding table might seem like something for dinner parties, games, or entertaining, but it also makes the perfect outdoor project table. My dad always seems to have some kind of project going on whether its working in the yard, fixing cars or motorcycles, or the many projects around our house. And it seems like he always has a Lifetime Table there helping him out. Lifetime tables are perfect for the many projects he has. Theyre lightweight, yet super durable. Theyre stain resistant and easy to clean, powder coated and UV protected for outdoor use, and Lifetime table...
