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!

Water Balloon Fun...1...2...3...Throw!
Summer is quickly winding down. But, thankfully, August is one of the hottest months so there are still plenty of days left to squeeze in some last minute authentic summer fun. Here in Texas, its been crazy hot. Ok, insanely hot something unbelievable like 35 days over 100 degrees before August even started! I was tired of simply heading to the pool or waterpark to stay cool, so the other day I surprised my kids with some good ol fashioned water balloons. Sure, it took twice as long to fill them up as it did to throw them, but it was worth it to see the smiles on their faces and hear their giggles. My son had fun trying to throw them at me, while my daughter just liked dropping them on the grass and watching them pop. I grew up playing with water balloons by having a simple water balloon toss contest. However, my neighbor...

Is Your Folding Table Safe?
As consumers, we have become accustomed to looking for safety features when making important purchase decisions, especially when it comes to products like vehicles, power tools, and baby items. But, did you know you should also look for safety features when buying a folding table, too? In my past few blog posts, I've been diving into various topics that help you make more educated folding table purchases. Unfortunately, probably the most overlooked features consumers consider when buying a folding table are safety features. The last thing you need is for your table to collapse while you are using it! So, what should you look for to ensure you are purchasing a safe table? A secure locking mechanism for the table legs. Now, the tricky part is that locking mechanisms will vary depending on the leg style. For rectangular banque...
