Dysons Rock!


I struggled a little with the title for this post. A few candidates...
"Look at my new pink dyson!"
"God invented the dyson"
and my personal favorite...
"My carpets are not possibly that funky."

My husband surprised me with a new vacuum cleaner. I had been complaining about our old vacuum. Which is really silly considering it was a dyson that we got from an old neighbor of ours for only $100 (an absolute steal). The vacuum still worked fine, but had a few bumps and bruises from use and from the cross-country move. The most recent "bruise" came in the form of the broken clip holding the canister on. Nothing a little duct tape wouldn't fix, but not as much fun to use and empty.
Call me silly, but cleaning is easier and more fun if you have cute supplies. It is a scientific fact.
So, I saw that Target brought back their special, limited edition pink Dyson, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. I emailed the link to my husband, begged and pleaded, and he surprised me by buying the new vacuum for me!
So, I listed our old vacuum on Cragslist and got $60 for it! Not bad, considering I had used it for 2 years - that is only $20 a year, my friend!!
Gotta love my husband because he tried to claim that he was romantic for buying me a pink vacuum cleaner! I told him that even a pink dyson doesn't equate romantic gift. Kate Spade shoes on the other hand...

So, the vacuum came, I put it together, and gave it a test spin on my living room rug.


EWWWWWWW! Do you see the funk in that vacuum? That is just from that carpet you see in the photo above. And, no, I did not move the toy chest/coffee table (toooo heavy!) I just vacuumed around that puppy. And all that funk was in that little bit of carpet. Ick. I promise my house is alot cleaner than you probably think now.

Run. Don't Walk. To your local store and buy yourself a dyson. Your life will never be the same!

You crack me up Missy- You have got to write a woman's guide of some sort...You are a really good writer! I do not have a dyson but I do have a great Vac and there is nothing else that cleans better then a good vacuum except maybe a fresh coat of paint (My grandma always says nothing cleans better then a fresh coat of paint) Love the Dyson and the fact it is Pink...Way to go Chris! Hope you had a great trip too!

I so have the same vacum. Hubby got it for me. He LOVES IT! He uses it too. Totally worth the money!

Hey Missy- I also own a Dyson, but mine is not cute and pink- mine is of the orange variety and is also showing signs of wear and tear (I've had it for 3 1/2 years- we were way ahead of our time). So, maybe I will get a pink one- I'm all for cute cleaning products too!

I blogged about my Dyson awhile back too! What's up with that? Are we Lucy and Ethel? Fact is, I love seeing the "funk", as you call it. Makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something much unlike most of the other things I do. Mine is not pink though...you lucky dog.

I love love love my dyson!! I'm just upset that I don't have the pink one! I had no idea how much my dog sheds until I got my dyson. Ick.
