  It is quite common in the wild world of outdoor sports, for companies to sponsor up-and-coming paddlers.  Lifetime has just taken on the sponsorship challenge.  As you may have read in my earlier blog about our Lifetime Hooligan Youth Stand-up Paddleboard, we found a Utah local who is sure to make a splash in the paddleboard world. We would like to introduce you to our super kid, Mac!!  He is only 10 years old but is quickly becoming a master of Stand-up Paddleboarding!  Mac’s dad, Gary, is a long-time surfer and has bestowed his wisdom and skill upon his son.  Mac has been entering paddleboard contests around  Utah, and has been blowing away his competition!  He recently placed 1st in the Weber River Paddleboard Race and the Jordenelle Reseviour Paddleboard Race.&n...

So, a few weeks ago, I wrote about our decision to buy a Lifetime Portable Basketball Hoop - Model 90228.  Well, it's assembled, up, and the kids are loving it.  When the box arrived, the kids couldn't wait for us to put it together.  The cool thing about Lifetime basketball hoops is even though it's a pretty large product, it's actually packaged all in one box.  Granted, it's a big box (size varies slightly depending on the size of backboard you buy).  But, it easily fits in an SUV and probably in the trunk of most mid-sized cars.  By the way, did you know Lifetime actually invented packaging basketball hoops in one box?  Really, they did! Back in 1992. It may seem like a novel idea now, but that invention made it so basketball hoops could be sold in mass retail markets like Walm... More

Once a year, Lifetime employees volunteer time to serve our communities around us. With the work we did at the Utah State University Botanical Center this year, it got some of our employees thinking. And not just thinking….oh no!  It was a surge of excitement! The excitement became contagious and a small group of employees pooled their teamwork to start their own vegetable garden in a small concrete garden box in front of their building. After buying the necessary plants and soil, everything was planted. And as of today, the tomatoes vines are climbing high, and even the crisp jalapeño peppers are already on the stems! I'm pretty sure my mouth was actually watering when I saw it. But even that’s not the end of it. Because of their group work to grow fresh vegetables right at work, that passion for... More

Cute house.  Nice yard.  But, something's still missing.  Take a closer look. Yes, our big three-car driveway is just screaming for a basketball hoop!  Don't you agree?  :)  As some of you may know, my husband is a pilot in the military and we have recently moved - again.  This time to beautiful Colorado.  I'm thrilled to report that after 12 years of working for Lifetime in some manner, we finally have a house that has a driveway perfect for a Lifetime basketball hoop.  It turns out that finding a great driveway to play basketball is the easy part.  Now, we have to decide exactly where we want to put the basketball system, whether we want an in-ground or portable system, and what model and features are best for us.  First things first.  Location.  ...

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 parent’s house. I don’t think many people can say that they had a huge bouncy slide, snow cone machine, and children’s 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... More

I'm guessing a lot of our readers will pull out their Lifetime folding tables and chairs to use as extra seating for holiday dinners and parties this month.  Well, no need for me to pull out ours - we are already using them every day! That's right.  We have a new kitchen table and chairs in our house.  For the past few weeks - and for the next month or so - we are using our Lifetime 37-Inch Square Folding Table and Lifetime Contemporary Folding Chairs for our kitchen table and chairs.  No, I'm not doing consumer research for Lifetime.  We are getting ready to move in a few weeks and our old kitchen table and chairs were too big for our new kitchen eating space, so we sold them at our garage sale a few weeks ago.  And, we don’t want to buy a new one until we get to our new house and re...

Wow, what a week we just had. Lifetime is headquartered in Clearfield Utah. Clearfield is in North Davis County. Davis County, as you may have heard on the national news, was the sight of some historically strong winds on Thursday, December 1. The mountains we have here typically shield us from things like tornadoes, but when the jet stream is just right, wind is forced up the Wasatch mountains and slams down on us. This only happens every 10 to 15 years. Early Thursday morning we woke up at my house to the fence missing, the trampoline missing, and flying debris. The winds were so strong that to go outside was dangerous as debris of all shapes and sizes was flying around. The National Weather Service said the winds reached up to 100 MPH. These are the same wind speeds you find in a category 2 hurricane. By the time it ... More

Still searching for that perfect Christmas gift to give your parents, grandparents, or your spouse?  Here's an idea - how about a cozy Lifetime Glider Bench? Last year, I gave my Dad the Lifetime Glider Bench for Christmas. I purchased the original Lifetime Glider Bench because it matched the Lifetime Picnic Table they have in their back yard.  (The Lifetime Glider Bench is also available in a Wood Alternative version that looks like real wood slats.) My Dad put his new Lifetime Glider Bench under a huge tree in the backyard at his lake house so he can sit under the shade and watch the lake. This summer when my family went home to visit, we all took turns at some point relaxing and gliding on the bench to watch the soothing waves on the lake, the crackling fire pit, or a friendly game of Cornhole.  But, ...

Our Shed Arrives!!
Its been several months since I first wrote about wanting/needing to build a shed in our backyard. Great news - you no longer have to read any more about my shed planning or problems. Why? Because last week we finally built our Lifetime shed! Whoo-hoo! Applause please. So, lets start at the beginning. We had our shed delivered to us. Before the delivery truck arrived, we assumed we would have to move our car out of the garage to keep the shed package until we were ready to build. We are building an 8x5 shed so naturally the packing is going to be huge and in several boxes. WRONG! When the driver opened his truck, he only had twoyes, 2 small boxes. Trust me, I double-checked the packing slip to make sure he brought everything. After that, I then noticed Lifetime actually prints right on the box in big print box 1 of 2 and box...
