photo-4-small.jpgHalloween 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.

photo-3-small.jpgSince 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 comfortable to sit in for hours.

Knowing this was going to go up on our Lifetime blog, I figured I’d maybe carve a Lifetime logo or something into the pumpkin. Seemed like a good idea….well, let’s just say I got a little carried away and decided I’d try carving the face of our V.P. of Sales and Marketing along with the logo. I realize this is a risky idea, but thankfully he has a good sense of humor. :)

Vince-Picture.jpgWell, personally I think it turned out pretty good – especially since this is my first try at this kind of pumpkin carving. But the best part was that we were able to clean up our place in less than 10 minutes. The Lifetime tables and chairs cleaned up so easily. I just wiped off the plastic with my kitchen dishrag and put the products back in my closet – so easy. If we had used my padded kitchen chairs, they would have been pretty horrible to clean.

Anyways, if you love pumpkin carving as much as I do, I highly recommend getting yourself some Lifetime tables and chairs. The cool thing is that you can find Lifetime tables and chairs everywhere – Walmart, Costco, Sam’s Club, Lowe’s – just look for the Lifetime logo molded into the product. You can also find a variety of Lifetime products online at www.buylifetime.com.

Happy Halloween!

Spring Break in Port Aransas
Deep breath. Looong slow exhale. Ok, I think Im mentally ready to unwind from my spring break vacation and start writing. As much as my parents deny it, theyre becoming Ohio snowbirds. For the past two years theyve packed their mini van full and moved to Texas for the month of March. They rent a condo right on the beach in Port Aransas on Mustang Island. I am very blessed that they choose to come to Texas rather than Florida so they can spend quality time with me. Ok, who am I kidding, we all know its for the quality time with my kids, not me! :) So, last week we headed to Port Aransas for spring break week to visit my parents. Spring break at Port Aransas is well, different. I did the whole spring break trip to South Padre Island back in my college days. It was pretty much what you see when watching MTVs Spring Break showh...
R2D2 and Minnie Mouse Costumes
Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween this year. We sure did! My kiddos were the perfect age this year to really enjoy it. Of course, I wouldnt being doing my doting mommy duty if I didnt brag about how cute my kiddos looked. Personally, I think they were the cutest costumes I saw...maybe just slightly prejudice, I know. :) My two-year-old daughter went as Minnie Mouse and my 6-year-old son was R2DT from Star Wars. At first I figured R2D2 would be easy to find since Star Wars is so popular right now. What I didnt realize is that R2D2 is not in the new movies and cartoons. Tons of Stormtroopers and Darth Vadar costumes were readily available, but leave it to us to pick the one character for which a costume doesnt exist. Luckily, my son LOVES to do craft projects so we decided to fully embrace his R2D2 passion and tackle ye...
How to Get More Seating Around Your Patio Table
Are you planning a backyard picnic to celebrate the end of summer or upcoming Labor Day? Still trying to figure out where everyone can sit? If you're like me, you have a nice patio table and chair set, but it seems like I'm still always short just one or two chairsto be able to have everyone sit together. I could set up my Lifetime card table and folding chairs, but it feels awkward having two people dine by themselves away from the group. Well, here's a handy suggestion my mom shared with me that's the perfect solution to your seating dilemma. Typically, the chairs that come with a patio table are very comfy, but they are also usually very wide and feature arm rests. If you need to add a few extra seats to your patio table, simply use your Lifetime folding chairs instead of your bulky patio chairs and you'll have instant ex...
