Mama's Give Away

I can't believe that I am actually going to blog about this, but, Mama needs a new vacuum so here it goes.
Kat over at Mama's Losin' It is giving away a new Hoover. Annnnd, if I just so happen to mention on my little blog here then I get 5 extra entries.

I have a vacuum. A very nice one at that. Bought it at Costco. My Mom would be proud. Not only that I have a nice vacuum, but that I bought it at Costco. She is like the Costco Queen. No joke. But here's my dilemma. Ya know when you stand it up and it is supposed to lock in place so that it stays standing up? Well, my little do-hicky thing broke off (probably in one of my clumsy "quick I need to vacuum before the company gets here" episodes) and now the thing doesn't stand up on it's own. I have to lean it against the wall. How annoying is that?

So this Hoover that she is giving away is new, shiny, stands up on it's own and it's turquoise. I never had a turquoise vacuum, but I think that it could possibly make housework that much more exciting, don't ya think? Okay, maybe not, but it's my fantasy and I'll dream what I want. Not only that, but this is the best part...this Hoover is self-propelling. Yep, my friends, self-propelling.
That. Thing. Is. Mine.

So pop on over to Kat's blog if you want to enter. Errrr, ummmm, I mean, it kind-of looks like a crappy vacuum and you probably wouldn't win it anyways, so you might as well not even bother. If I win it I'll just let you borrow it or you can come over and just marvel at it. I'm sure it's not something that you really would want.

Seriously, every post you make me smile at least, and sometimes you even make me giggle out loud. Good luck on winning your new vacuum. Blessings!

I have an Oreck...my hubby got it for me when I injured my back. Best vacuum ever...except for your new turquoise one...of course!

Happy Tuesday!

My "little do-hicky thing" broke too. At first I tried to duck tape that puppy, but that didn't last long. Now I have to be careful when kneeling next to it that it doesn't flop over and knock me in the head. Maybe I should head over and enter for the vacuum too.

I'm sorry, but I have the best vacuum in the world- A built in central vacuum system! There is nothing to beat it. Just plug the hose and the power head into the wall and everything gets sucked into a canister in the garage. Good luck with winning your vacuum! I hope you get it. I'm sorry, I have to brag about my central vac. system- it came with the house!

My Oreck "died" three weeks ago and I've been using a dirt-d***l hand vac for the past weeks. On my hands and knees.

I might just go check out this vacuum sweepstakes!
