Just My Size!

Kids have a way of doing things that just make you smile.  It's always surprising and amusing how even the tiniest of tots can be pretty resourceful.  Take, for instance, my daughter's witty idea a few weeks ago when we visited my family in Ohio.  While we were up at their lake house, we ate almost every meal outside to enjoy the lake view and the beautiful weather.  Plus, with six adults and five kids, we simply had more table space outside than inside. 

Typically, the adults would always sit at my parents' patio table and chairs while the kids would eat at the 6' Lifetime picnic table.  Even though it wasn't a children's Lifetime picnic table, all of the kiddos could reach just fine, except for my two-year-old daughter, Alyssa.  She loves being like the big kids though so don't think for a second that size would stop her! 

Nope, usually Alyssa just sat on her knees and could reach the tabletop without much problem.  One meal, though, she got pretty wiggly and silly and actually fell off.  (Thank goodness she wasn't hurt.) So, the next meal, instead of trying to sit still like we asked, she came up with her own plan!  She simply pulled her little toddler outdoor chair up to the bench of the picnic table and used the bench as her tabletop.  It was the perfect height for her!  And, who knew a plate was the perfect size to sit on a picnic table bench?  Alyssa was finally able to sit on her bottom and was still able to eat at the picnic table with the big kids!  Now, why didn't I think of that?!

Ambassador Huntsman Tours Lifetime China Facility and EcoHouse
Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Xiamen, China, to show our factory and new EcoHousing Initiative to Jon Huntsman Jr., previous governor of Utah and current Ambassador to China. The tour of our Xiamen facility was well organized and I could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. A bit of history. In 2008, we opened a wholly-owned and operated facility in Xiamen, China. This means we have tight control over product quality. This is a huge distinction and big advantage over imitation "Lifetime" products made in China by other companies. By having our own manufacturing facility overseas, we can be more globally competitive and more effectively and profitably manage our international sales and distribution to the more than 52 countries we sell products to worldwide. Being wholly-owned also means the facili...
Here A Table, There A Table, Everywhere A Lifetime Table!
Even after being part of the Lifetime team for nearly 10 years now, I still get a little giddy every time I see a Lifetime table when Im out and about. This past weekend, I was practically jumping up and down when my husband and I went to an outdoor concert at Whitewater Amphitheatre in New Braunfels, Texas. Whitewater is appropriately named because it is nestled amongst the trees in the Texas hill country on the banks of the bubbly Guadalupe River. It is an absolute picturesque setting for enjoying concerts in the summer evenings under the stars. As soon as we walked into the facilities, I was greeted by Lifetime banquet tables at the ticket entrance and in the merchandise area where they were selling concert t-shirts and souvenirs. However, my real excitement came as I walked a few steps further and saw nearly 50 Lifetime ...
