My New WONDERFUL Vacuum!!!!

****Before I start this post, I'd like to say that somehow, Mark's one post received more comments than of my other posts. Where's the love, people?!****

One thing that has been really frustrating to me over the last few months has been the lack of a good vacuum, thus the lack of clean carpet, thus the lack of a tidy looking apartment. Thus, a higher than necessary stress level.

The vacuum I had been using is apparently super nice, but something isn't right with it, and I haven't had the time or money to investigate and fix the problem. It kept spitting stuff back out.

Like I always do, I decided to do a little research. Shout out to Amazon.com!!! I got online and found a vacuum. An inexpensive vacuum. A vacuum that had 4.5 stars with over 1500 reviews. This is legit, people. Reviews said things like the vacuum is awesome, a great deal, and almost just as good as vacuums that cost several hundreds of dollars. So, they definitely had my attention, because I don't have several hundreds of dollars, and I need an awesome vacuum.

Taking advantage of my Amazon Prime membership, I ordered the vacuum for $76 with free two day shipping. I ordered it yesterday, and folks, it came a day early.

So, what do I think of this new little number? Well, here I am, testing it out:

And just so that you can see the results, here are the before and after pictures of my rug. The photos don't really do it justice. Let's just say the rug has been given new life.



Here is one of my favorite qualities of vacuum cleaners, a quality that I haven't been able to enjoy in a long time. Yes, folks, those are vacuum marks on the carpet. ahhh....

Just so you can see how much fun I was having, here's another shot of me vacuuming. Might I add, this is extremely easy to use, much easier than my old one. I'm in deep focus, there, and little Miguel is helping.

So, what do I think of my new Hoover Tempo? I think I'm in love.



  1. nothing makes me smile like a nice clean floor! i love your little rug too :)

  2. i can totally relate to the vacuum love. mine broke a few weeks ago (though i don't really need one right now as i'm living at home). regardless, i still had my handy dandy dad fix it for me just so i could say it was well taken care of.

  3. ahhh... nice vacuum marks. i love them too!!

  4. ok Mark, give it up! You have lost out to a vacuum. There is nothing more wonderful than a new kitchen gadget or big appliance. Nice going Kathryn! I am going to let you start shopping for me!

  5. How can anyone look so darling doing housework as you do?! You are so special ~ and cute! Love ya ~ Sunnie

  6. haha there is nothing better than a great new vacuum. The moment you become a true adult is when you get excited over a vacuum!! Enjoy

  7. The new vacuum REALLY sucks! Don't worry--I'll be here all week.

  8. Ha...nothing I love more than a good sucking vaccum :)

  9. Lol how cute! We were in that situation a month ago & we got a good deal at wal mart for $50 bagless & all these extra gadgets I never realized how much I liked to vacuum! I even got this powder smell good stuff to put on the carpet & vacuum =D
