In my family I have this crazy aunt who insists her carpets have perfectly lined up vacuum marks. She even vacuums on her way out the front door so as not to leave any footprints behind in her perfectly manicured carpet.

I have become that crazy aunt.

Because internets? I GOT A DYSON.

It was a culmination of gifts for surviving law school. my birthday, mother’s day, putting up with Cody and of course my all encompassing awesome.

It feels completely natural to hug it. And I do, regularly.

I need to get a house so I can have more square footage to vacuum. (And no, I’m not kidding.)

Want to be my friend? Come through my front door and throw glitter on the floor. Not only will it give me an excuse to vacuum, can you imagine how awesome glitter would look swiriling through the high impact polycarobonate canister?

NaBloPoMo for May here at moosh in indy has been foiled by my intense love for an appliance that sucks.

  7. I love to vacuum too and it makes me oh so slightly bonkers when my kids immediately ride trucks around on my neatly vacuumed rug. I understand your obsession.

  11. is it seriously that good? i need a new one and have been debating what to get

  12. Oh I am so jealous! I have been drooling over dysons for so long and the hubs just can’t see spending that much on an appliance that sucks! Will you bring it to BlogHer this year and we can vacuum the whole hotel together. I promise it will be a blast 🙂

  13. Welcome to the world of Dyson! I have to admit that ours made a funny sound once and scared my husband nearly to death and now he swears under his breath about the stupid vacuum, but I? LOVE.

  15. I think I can feel my age when I read a blog entry like this and I am oh so jealous of someone’s vacuum. Remember the good ol’ days when we cared about purses and shoes and not polycarbonate canisters?

    Made me smile. What a break from the drudgery of the real world.

    Still, I’m thinking that maybe I didn’t get the same attachments for my Dyson that you might have received.

  18. Been lusting after a Dyson for YEARS. Maybe someone will see fit to get the family to team up and make it a birthday present to MEEE.

    OR, you can haul it here to GA and vacuum up the skunk hair – she’s shedding.

    Reeses last blog post..Dealz

  19. this is why you are amazing. I will gladly come to your house and put glitter on your floor. i luff you

  20. Oh my gosh you are cracking me up. Congrats on being Dysoned.

  21. I am soooo jealous. I don’t even HAVE carpet (one area rug, does that count?) and I want a dyson.

    Karlys last blog post..I’ll Give You A Dollar If You Can Read This Without Scratching Your Head.

  22. You can come sweep my carpets! I might even PAY you! I’d love a Dyson but we’re trying to eliminate carpet in our house. So far the first floor is carpet free but there’s still that nasty second floor.

  23. only you could make me envious of vacuuming. Any time you want to drive the 5.5 hrs to my house to vacuum our 1800 sq ft of carpet my guest room will be waiting for you!

    Heather @ Domestic Extraordinaires last blog post..The Winners

  24. congrats.

  25. Oh! I yearn for the day when I too will have a Dyson.

    Alis last blog post..Random Tuesday Thoughts

  26. I actually have some glitter I need to get rid of. I was planning on throwing it out, but maybe I’ll just mail it instead. In a booby trapped box that will explode in your living room.

  27. you are too funny. and I just got a dyson as well and LOVE IT. of course, it totally lets you know how bad the dog really does shed…

    courtneys last blog post..squeaky clean…

  28. you naughty. just promise me you won’t try to dyson in the shower. It’s not as good as it sounds…

  29. I love my Dyson- even 4 years later. The hubby and I argue regularly (as we have since day 1) about who gets to vacuum a room. We STILL get amazed what all it will pick up.

  30. I make out with my pink Dyson all the time. I love to show everyone how dirrrrrrty we are.

  31. Oh, I SO want a dyson. Enjoy it.

  32. Come to FL for a visit to our pristine beaches and you can vacuum all you want. I have 1700 square feet waiting to be vacuumed daily. 🙂

  33. Karen Demerly says:

    I recently started housecleaning for a lady who has a Dyson. It really does do a great job, but wow, it’s HEAVY! I think her’s is yellow – the pet one? Seriously heavy – not for the frail.

  34. Congratulations on your new arrival – I’m sure you two will be very happy together 🙂

    I read some ****ty reviews on Dysons a few years back when I bought my current vaccum. Looks like everyone here loves them – maybe I should consider a change? And maybe “accidently” throw the other vaccum down the stairs?

    Kriss last blog post..Damn you Disney!

  35. Do you think if I got one I could keep it running all night long so its lovely purr could sooth me to sleep like a fancy sound spa that plays womb-like heartbeat sounds?

    Nicoles last blog post.."You sound just like your mother."

  36. You made me laugh. I have dyson envy too. What it wouldn’t do for my home filled with 4 crazy kids!!!!

  37. I have had my dyson for 6 years? I think! I know tragic I do not remember his birthday!

    I love in the video that Cody kept saying “our” dyson. What did the woman say, it was cut off? Technically…?

  38. I want a Dyson SO bad and my stingy husband refuses to buy me one. I mean, we have 2.5 kids, a dog and two cats and HIM! I deserve a wonderful awesome high powered fabulous vacuum.

    Lucky girl. ;o)

  39. I have serious vacuum envy 🙁 Uprights have only JUST started showing up here in Holland, we still have those annoying Pod / Hose style vacuums which are a pain in the ass to store anywhere in our limited space.

    My mom did that thing with the vacuum lines too! And then we werent allowed to walk on it until it was absolutely necessary. Then she got berber carpets and we are all much happier!

    For the record, I got a dyson for a wedding gift from my inlaws, and I give it a hug almost every time I use it. They are truly awesome, especially when you have kids or a dog!

  42. Yay! Welcome aboard!

    Hollys last blog post..This Would be Funnier if it Had Happened To Someone Else

  43. HA! HA! HA! “I just dysoned in my living room”! I can’t stop laughing my butt off! I want one! I want to dyson too!

    Love the crazy aunt bit! She really is too! I have to confess- she made me that crazy vaccuumer (sp?) and now because I know how CRAZY it is to vaccuum all OCDish I go over the perfectly straight lines this way and that to mess it all up! He he!

  44. Yay!!!
