Mega Millions

I gotta know…what is the first frivolous thing you'd buy if you won 500 million?
Aside from new wheels, I'd spend money until I finally, FINALLY found a moisturizer or spf that doesn't break me out in hives. What about you?

Before I ever cashed the ticket or even told anyone (besides Hubs, of course), I would totally go hide out at a spa resort for a week while NBC, ABC, and CBS searched high and low for the winner who has yet to come forward. And I would order room service in my thick white robe while watching the morning news shows drive themselves crazy.

The first thing I would do is hire a personal chef.

Me and my parents have been having this discussion over the past couple of days. We don’t play the lottery but my dad has joked that he’s going to start to (especially after seeing the movie “Waking Ned Devine”).

I would probably buy some of the classic movie costumes that Debbie Reynolds was auctioning off a while back. And display them in my room. =) Or maybe buy them all and build a museum for them, of which I would be the curator so I could talk old movies all day. Or maybe I’d build a library like the one in “Beauty and the Beast.”

Honestly, the first thing I’d probably do is take a month-long trip to England, Scotland, and Ireland.

Id buy shoes or every kid in the whole wide world! Just kidding! I’d probably buy a really great guitar, most likely a Les Paul, from my private beachfront villa on an island I’ve never heard of before…but that would occur sometime early afternoon when I decided to get out of bed.

I would buy out the bookstore. And then I would add a room to my house, right next to my room, and make it into this – http://colorflystudio.blogspot.com/2011/05/book-walls.html
And I would stop worrying about not having enough money to go on the mission trips I want to go on. Because frankly, I’m pretty sure I’d have more than enough.
And then, and then, and then…Sorry. Usually I’m a decent writer. But not so good at reading instructions. I just looked back up and realized you asked for the “first thing.” To bad, so sad. You get three. ‘Cause I’m an overachiever. Take that.

I would pay off my student loans. HAHAHA. Can’t wait til those are paid.

I’d probably go live in Ecuador…after touring the world with my family.

I would hire a masseuse/masseur or however you spell it. Someone to give me a massage ANY time I wanted it. And I love the idea of building a library–that would be awesome.

Such great ideas. I keep thinking how fun it would be to donate and buy things for others. So much fun.

Jen, I can totally see you living in Ecuador.

Jimmie, I hope we all get some of those free shoes if you do win.

Kristin, those costumes would look so cool on display–esp in a new house!

Personal chef, masseuse, that is good thinking. I’d want a driver too. I hate driving.

Heather, if you win, I’m gonna find you.

I would totally buy a juke box, because not only do they look awesome. They play the awsome 80’s and 90’s music.

Even before I type it I know how shallow it sounds, but with so much extra cash lying around…and you did say frivolous, maybe I’d spring for some really great hair extensions. I’ve had thin hair all my life, and I kind of wonder what it might feel like to toss a thick mane across my shoulder like they do in those shampoo commercials. Because I am so tight with money and this goes against everything I believe in, I will justify it by tipping the stylist a ridiculous amount of money to put her kids through college.

Oooo, after buying a house, a car for all the people in my family, I would TOTALLY get laser hair removal! I am so tired of shaving! *snicker*

Mmm, first thing I’d buy is pink, knee-length skirt covered in sequins. Then I’d buy tickets to a Michael Buble concert at which I’d wear my new skirt. I dream big.

Jenny B Jones - March 31, 2012

Oh, y’all, don’t wait til you win the lottery for the laser. Worth every penny for areas smaller than legs. Around here they often have deals on that on Groupon or Groupon-type daily deals.

jenny, I totally relate on the hair. And with all that money, that’s not shallow. Using the money to erect billboards with your face..shallow. Hair extensions? nah.

The first thing i’d buy is a book. the second thing i’d buy would be a few more books. then i’d shop for shoes. then i’d spend the half of my remaining money on books.i’d save the rest for a Hollywood hairdo for my curls, college, my prom dress, and a ticket to Hollywood to meet my future husband, Peeta from the Hunger Games.

PS: i no his real name but i dont know how to spell his last name and im too lazy to look it up-if i had the money, i’d also hire a maid.

A girly red hummer 3. That way people would stay out of my way on the highway and it would still be girly.

The first thing I would buy would be similar to you Jenny. (or would it be Ms. Jenny?) anyway I would buy almost every type of makeup there is until I found the perfect colors to match my skin tone, because I have an unnaturally pale skin tone. Also it can’t irritate my skin, I have sensitive skin. Yep, that’s first on my list of priorities.
The second thing I would buy is a years supply of peanutbutter in case the zombie appocolypse comes during my lifetime. I would also buy a years supply of cookies for Jada and I’d buy one of those basement things so we can be safe in there with our beautiful boyfriends (or husbands) and possible kids (depending on how old we are) while the zombies attack.
Jenny don’t worry I’ll buy you a years supply of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and you are welcome to our basement along with a limit of four guests, and any prized possessions.

I like the way you think Jessie. I really do. And lent’s almost over so I will be able to eat those cookies. And speaking of ice cream…does chocolate, cookie dough ice cream count as a cookie or what?

Reply
Jessie Nicole AKA: Sparklez - April 2, 2012

Haha thanks Jada, I am not really sure if chocolate cookie dough ice cream counts? I don’t know, maybe you should google it, that’s what I always do, or ask someone of a higher intellectual level. (SIMPLIFIED: definatly not me! Haha)

You’re hiliarious. And if I do google it, do you think i’ll REALLY get an answer? I’ll try. But then again, i might not ’cause i’m scared it might be yes and i won’t be able to eat it. its soooo DELICIOUS!!!! And you can buy it at Wal-Mart!!! 🙂
