Delightful Detour

I was gonna post all about our fabulous weekend away, visiting my mom's side of the family and stuffing our faces on authentic Italian delicacies. But a late-breaking email alerted me to a far more important post (thanks, Nat, for the heads up!).

Really, I've never won anything this big, this BAD (in a good, bad way), and this AMAZING before. When it arrives, I'll be sure to share the product review with you all!

So, thanks to BooMama for the fabulous contest. Thanks to Oreck for sponsoring it and offering the grand prize. And thanks, Lord. You all have NO idea how poorly my current vacuum sucks up junk. Just ask Li'l Empress - she'll gladly tell you as she babbles around the miniscule junk she keeps finding in the carpet to pick up and gnaw at all day long. When she's supposed to be practicing her crawling and tummy time.

Grin. Woooo hoooo. I won an Oreck!

Congratulations and happy vacuuming!

ComfyDenim said...

Oh, How fantastic!!

I'm thrilled for you!!

Brittany Ray said...

Way to go Tracy!! Maybe a nice vacuum will make the dreaded chore more enjoyable. I can't wait to hear about your family reunion. Give Lil Empress kisses from Bayley and I.

Take care,

Theresa said...

Congratulations! That is supposed to be the best vacuum ever.

Awesome! I was going to enter 5 Minutes for Mom contest for this item.

When I read who the winner was I called Dan and told him. He was excited for you and wants to know how it works since we are in the market for a good vacuum... one that lasts longer than 1 year.

Wanda said...

All I can say.....is WOW! Great for you, sister!

Clean up that crawly floor for that Lil Empress!


That is sooooooo exciting!

In a "good bad way" or is that a "bad good way"? Sorry - I'm just in a mood!!

hugs and congrats (I guess - it's kind of like a new lawn mower - cool - but it means a lot of work~!)

aus and family
