For our 6 year anniversary we did the responsible thing and bought a vacuum. Our roomba is pretty awesome at daily sweeps, but it turns out that I have some serious allergies...like I am dying the majority of the year. We figured as long as we have carpet we needed one that did some deep cleaning. Mrs Natalie, you convinced us and we followed your lead :)

Yay for six years! Wowzier six freakin' years.

Love this picture of us. Taken three years ago, right at the spot that he proposed.

What a fabulous list! I love it. And alas, I love love my vacuum. Congratulations on spending more on a vacuum than you probably spend on groceries in a month! It will last a long time. Don't forget to clean the filter!
