If I Won The Lottery....

Today I'm linking up with The Daily Tay and Helene in Between for their #Blogtober14 Blog Every Day in October series.

Today's post idea is "If I won the lottery..." and I don't think I'm alone when I say I have definitely thought about what I would do if I won the lottery.  Of course there are the easy answers like pay off student loans, pay off my car, pay off our house, donate to my favorite charities, and share the wealth with our families.  But those aren't the "fun" answers.  Today I want to share the fun things I would do if I won the lottery.  I even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to this.  So here are some of the things I would do if I won the lottery:

I would definitely buy a beach house.  I would also buy a nice big house in Michigan to stay close to family and friends, but during those cold winter months (or when I need a vacation), I'd head to my beach house to relax.

The new house I buy in Michigan would have all of the things I've dreamed of, including: giant walk-in closet, amazing back yard with lots of entertaining space, an amazing pool, and a theater room.

Back porch. I'd never go inside!

Fire Pit patio off the deck

Now that is a basement!

I'd also travel to places I've always wanted to go to....Hawaii and Bora Bora are at the top of the list.
With nine pools, this #Maui resort is sure to impress. #Hawaii

Four Seasons Bora Bora...someone please take me here!

There are lots of other fun things I would do, like get a new car, go on some major shopping sprees to fill my giant walk-in closet, hire a personal trainer, and the list goes on....

What would you do if you won the lottery?

  1. That fire pit with seating around it. Amazing!!! I actually just pinned that a few days ago. Really, really want it in my backyard

  2. I'd buy a big house of the beach and one nearby for my parents, buy a new car, and travel the world. Of course lots of shopping too!

  3. I would prefer a normal-looking house but with lots of land...however, that walk-in closet is tempting. :) After buying that and a couple of new cars, and making donations to some animal shelters, I would probably keep the rest in the bank and live off of it, so I wouldn't have to work.
