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

Happy Halloween!

Will It Tip? Testing the Stability of a Lifetime Manta Kayak
In my last blog post, I showed you how a tandem Lifetime Manta Kayak compares in size to other kayaks. Today, I want to show you a little about the stability of this kayak. Last month my family tested the Manta Kayak for several days on Lake Erie. When I say family, I mean everyoneme, my husband, my kids, my nieces, my brother, my uncles, and my mom and dad. As you can see in the photos, we paddled the Manta in pretty much every weight combination and seating combination possible. The Lifetime Manta Kayak has a 500lb weight capacity and we tested it to its limits. We paddled it with one person, two people, three people and even four people! And, guess what? It didn't tip!The Lifetime Manta Kayak,orYellow Bananaas we now call it,is unbelievably stable. Even when one person would get on or off the kayak with others still sittin...
Giving Back by Focusing on Our Future
A few months ago, Lifetime Vice President of Marketing Clint Morris was at an important meeting. It was a meeting focusing on our future. Surprisingly, it wasn't a meeting with one of our retail accounts, or with important government leaders. Instead, he was at a meeting with students at Career Day at a local Utah junior high, sharing his expertise in marketing and manufacturing with our country's future leaders. Lifetime encourages its employees to share their passion and industry knowledge in the community by volunteering to speak at conferences, career days, judging science fairs, etc. For a change of pace with our blog, I decided to sit down with Clint for a few minutes to ask him about his recent experience. What did you share about your job that was the most interesting to students?The part that I felt was most intere...
