NOW!!! If I had $550 I would purchase it online, right now, no questions asked. I have been obsessing about it since the moment I saw it and I know I will one day break down if I don't get some serious help, people.

There has been one big thing I've wanted for the house since the very beginning. It ranks above brand new furniture, decorations, even a KitchenAid Mixer. It is an Oreck vacuum cleaner. I LOVE my mom's Oreck and I desperately want one of my own! This 9 lb. beauty (only the base model is 8 lbs. but heck, compared to some of the 50 lb. suckers out there, I'll take it) is amazing! I love how light it is and easy to vacuum with. I tried the infamous Dyson once and let me tell you, I don't want one. Too heavy, too bulky. Second, I'm probably the only one on the planet who doesn't want a canister vacuum. Why? Because of Oreck's amazing system for changing the bag! When you pull the full bag off, it seals the hole so you don't get dust everywhere like you do when you carry the canister out to the trash to shake it out. Yuck!

Also, they have an amazing warranty. Every year for up to 21 years (depends on which model) they will do a tune-up. Change the belts, put a new bag on for free, clean the thing inside out, oil it, etc. It's like getting a brand new vacuum every year!

But, when I saw this, I went over the edge. Drum roll, please... it's a PINK Oreck vacuum cleaner!!!

As in Breast Cancer Awareness Pink!
For those of you who don't know me, my maternal grandmother died from Breast Cancer before I was born, my paternal grandmother is a survivor, as well as my aunt. I'm a Pink freak. If it's pink (and I can afford it) I buy it. I have a Pink apron, Pink spatulas, Pink chip clips, Pink cookie sheet liners, Pink socks, Pink shoes, Pink everywhere!! Rob hates it, but hey, it all goes to a good and worthy cause. But now, I HAVE to have this. Not only is it my beloved Oreck, but it's PINK!!! Okay, enough said. I will own this at some point if it has to break me. Well, even more...

Good night!!
