It’s finally spring, or as I like to call it, spend-every-waking-hour-its-not-raining-outdoors season. Spring, as you may have guessed, is my favorite time of the year: everything comes alive, new flower pop up every day, and it’s warm enough to read a book or eat a meal outdoors.

One lucky winner will be able to do both those things in their yard with today’s prize: Two outdoor benches from outdoor furniture and outdoor shed retailer Lifetime. Made of engineered wood, these sturdy benches won’t fade, warp or rot, so they’ll look good for years to come. But wait, there’s more! When you’re ready to eat dinner, turn the bench back upwards….

…and the bench also becomes a table! Push two together and you have a space large enough for family dining. Cool, huh? And since the bench-slash-table does double-duty, it will work just as well for an itsy-bitsy backyard as it will for a spacious one.

    One of the most enjoyable things in life is to sit in your yard and enjoy the moment. The convertible bench would add a place for a cup of tea or coffee.

    Getting to take my girls (our two puppies) out on a hike. All of us love being outside all day in the wilderness and beautiful weather.

    My favorite springtime activity is reading outdoors, just sitting in a park with a great book- soaking up some pre-summer sun!

    My favorite springtime activity is Watching the pink flowered tree in my yard bloom, it only lasts for a few weeks and it's so beautiful to see its transition. My fiancée and I are moving out of our apartment into our first home, this is the last spring I will watch it bloom :( Also spending cool nights around our firepit in the backyard is a close second!

    What a fantastic prize!
    My favorite spring activity is CLEANING! No joke… around the end of February, I start getting itchy to start Spring Cleaning. To me, it's a way to wake up the house. Clean windows, de-cluttered closets, cleaned oven… it's teamed with the freshness of spring and makes me feel so good!
