A few weeks ago my dear and wonderful friend Tai, who is an account manager for Dyson Canada, emailed to announce that they were doing a Friends & Family event and this time around the pink Breast Cancer model that I've been coveting ever since I first laid eyes on it, is included! Not only did I squeal and jumped up and down like a little school girl, but I emailed Tai and had put my order in pronto. The last week had been beyond excruciating waiting for the arrival of my new vacuum. But the wait was definitely worth it.

Yesterday afternoon, my new bundle of joy arrived at my doorstep. I didn't think I could get so unbelievably excited about a vacuum! Wow, how domesticated does that sound? I've been wanting a new vacuum for what feels like forever but had always put off getting one in favor of buying fabric and/or yarn. But now that I have a little one, having a super clean floor has moved up on my list of priorities. My old vacuum really sucked, actually, no, it didn't and that's why I needed a new one. I had even made buying a new vacuum as one of my 101 goals.

As soon as Brett handed me the box, I ripped it open, quickly assembled the vacuum and proceeded to vacuum the house with the old piece of crap. Why, when I had a perfectly new one in my midst? Cause I wanted to see what a lousy job it had been doing all these years. After a thorough clean with the old vacuum, I revved up the new pink Dyson and did a quick vacuum of the entire house all over again (the little one was not liking the fact that Mommy's attention was somewhere other than on him!).

W...O...W. I made sure I did a thorough job the first time around. Apparently not! The lovely Dyson had proved me wrong! Sorry for the dirt shot, but I was completely amazed. Wow...

Yes. I'm tickled pink in love!


  1. LUCKY!!!! those things are so expensive! and, you got a PINK one!!

  2. Ohmigoodness. I love it. I might need a dealer hook-up at some point. Seriously. There could be yarn in it for you... ;D

    We did the same thing with my mom's dyson when she got it--vacuum first with the old cleaner, and then the new one. Same results. Makes you wonder why you bothered vacuuming at all with the old one, hey?

  3. I've always wanted a dyson!!! Lucky you!

  4. Natalie:
    I know!! I've been saving up for one for the last year, expecting to not purchase one for another year or so...when my friend gave me his Friends and Family discount, I thought it would be 30%. Which is better than nothing, but then I found out that it's actually a 50% discount!! SCORE!!! Double score for the pink one!! :D

    The old vacuum is on its way out the door. After that little "test", I'm more surprised that I even kept it for as long as I did!! I'm glad I'm not the only one that did that!

    I've been wanting a new vacuum for soooo long. I wanted any vacuum, as long as it did its job. I just lucked out that I had a friend that worked for Dyson!! Now I know what all the fuss is about!

  5. Awesome! It's such a great feeling of accomplishment when you look at the little canister full of dirt after vacuuming with that thing!

  6. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, you are such a lucky lady!!!!!!!! I am so jealous! We had friends come visit over xmas and I seriously made them bring there Dyson from out of town just so I could vacuum my place with it - I was in love. Now to find the moula to buy one....a girl can dream....

  7. My children love to announce that I want a "ball vacuum"! A new vac is on my list as well - but I am with you there is always something to pass it up for!

  8. All that dirt AFTER vacuuming with the old one... I want one of those! ;-)

  9. Sorry for the late replies guys! With the Ravelympics happening, I've been spending a lot of time knitting and away from the computer!

    I feel soooo accomplished after vacuuming and seeing that huge pile of dirt and dust! NOt to mention it feels good to tick another item off my to-do list!

    If it wasn't for my friend's very generous discount, I'd still be trying to scrape together the dough to get one!

    Naturally Sewn:
    My son is currently obsessed with playing with the vacuum! He's constantly touching the ball and wondering why it's stuck in the machine!

    With all the yarn flying around the house and other crafty endeavors going on, the vacuum was a must!!! :D
