I have a new best friend

His name is D. Say hello.

So I've always wanted a Dyson...like ALWAYS. I admit, I've been envious of others who seem to always plaster their own Dyson all over their blog (*cough* Laura *cough*) or people who always seem to have their Dyson set OUT when I'm invited over (*cough* Summer *cough*). It made me very jealous. Before we left Fburg, we vacuumed our apartment one last time and then threw that old stinky burnt smelling piece of crap we had in the dumpster. I didn't care that it was dead or that this decision would leave me without a vacuum in my new home. I knew as soon as I got to Jville I would be purchasing my OWN Dyson. Instead, the costs associated with moving took over and my purchase had to be set on the back burner. That was bad because I have 600 kids who track dirt all over the place. I swept. A LOT. But you can't sweep carpet (at least not very well). So 3 weeks after no vacuuming, I was finally able to purchase my Dyson today.
I stood at the display in Target with my mouth open. I was confused even though I had researched all the different DC whatever's over and over again online. I tried calling friends but some wouldn't answer. Luckily Summer had my back. She talked me through my anxiety and I was able to make a decision. I decided on DC24, Dyson's BALL. He may not be pink (which is the one I was contemplating over but she didn't come with a $50 gift card to Target) but he's cute, he's orange and the best part? He's MINI. I love mini. Remember?
Austin said, "Why did you want this so bad? You don't vacuum, 'I' do."
I said, "I'm gonna start!"
Welcome home D. Welcome home.

Hi D! You are going to love your new home!

I love my Dyson. It is totally a member of the family. Try not to be too dorky and fight over who gets to use it. Also, how responsible of you not to pick your vaccuum based on color.

Woohoo! I was first!

Laura said...

ah, welcome to the club. You'll love vacuuming now, i promise.

I tossed our old vacuum when we moved too! I didn't even allow it to get on the moving truck! I gave it to our maid as she cleaned for the last time and immediately headed to Lowes for a brand new Dyson. It's amazing how much dust and dirt that thing sucks up! Happy vacuuming!

Oh man! Now I'm the only one left without one, I'll have to be jealous all by myself. *sigh* Maybe one day when my P.O.S. $35 vacuum gives out I too will be allowed to get one. Until then I'll just have to live vicariously through you.

L U C K Y!!!
I don't have any kids, just an unruly dog and I would love, love, love a Dyson. I guess that's a sign that I'm just growing even MORE old and MORE boring!

I love my Dyson! I have the DC 17 animal. It is seriously the best. I lent it to my brother one time and he didn't return it for nine days and I thought my head would explode!

Amanda said...

I will be having to buy a new vac. soon (meaning hopefully in the next year! Molly has the yellow dyson ball and i have used that. But it's HEAVY! maybe the Mini is the way to go! Let me know how you LOVE it and show us a picture of you using it girl:) I wish it came in a shiny cherry red!

Your brother will really be jealous now! I guess since I'll have your house key, I'll just take yours from your house while your in TX and use it! I will just kidnap "D" for alittle while and see if I like him for myself...and if I do, then I'm not going to give him back!

Why am I the only one that doesn't know about Dyson? Vacuuming is my favorite domestic duty! There is nothing better than the sight of freshly finished rows in the carpet. It makes me feel like I'm a super homemaker, the epitome of cleanliness and order!

i've never felt so much like a fifties house wife as i do RIGHT NOW. I have ALWAYS wanted a Dyson too... ever since that british guy on the tv told me (in his sophisticated accent) how ingenious it is and how i need one.... it's true. i do. *sigh*... i gotta get a job.
