Thought I’d jump back in and try to finish out the year’s Show and Tell Tuesdays! This is a good one! What would I do if I won the lottery?
1. Get out of Debt & Update the House
I know – this one isn’t fun. But I’ll get there. While we don’t have too much frivolous debt anymore, I’d definitely pay off the Tahoe and student loans and the house and finish all the stuff around the house that needs done (fence in the springtime, need a pole barn for the tractor and Mr. Coffee’s wood working stuff, and all the other little things). Fantasy list: 1) Addition with a bigger garage, gun/safe room, man cave, bigger master bedroom storage, and an office. 2) She shed in the back (or maybe part of that pole barn?) where I can craft and sew and do all the girly things. 3) Inground, concrete pool (so the dogs can swim too).
To be able to do all that without adding more debt? All at once? YESSSSSS.
2. Buy Mr. Coffee a new truck
I have the Tahoe and Mr. Coffee needs a nice, family-sized vehicle that’s big enough to haul manly, Lumberjack things. So. 3500 HD Silverado it is. (Currently, he has a small older truck and a sports car… neither of which will fit two Danes. lol) And if number 4 happens… I’m gonna need a Suburban.
3. Plan an awesome honeymoon
Yea. I mean, that’s a given right? So – Hawaii for two weeks? A month? Wonder how long Mr. Coffee can take off work. And, while we’re at it, we’d just pay for the whole wedding and save Mom and Dad some $$ too. I was thinking the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort looks amazing. But then there’s Fiji… an Over Water Bungaloo is ONLY $11 Thousand for a week. Totally could pull that off if we win the jackpot.
4. Get all the Great Danes.
I would have like five. I think more than five Danes is a littttle overkill (some people probably think more than one is but hey – we know what we like). Maybe Four Danes and a Westie. But I’d definitely rescue a few! And honestly, I could see us building a rescue kennel or even a boarding kennel – one of those fancy ones with a little dog pool and swanky little rooms. Yea, I would love that. All the dogs, all running around, all amazing.
5. Buy a ranch in Colorado with a cabin on it.
6. Make sure our friends and family are taken care of and donate, donate, donate.
