If you were given $5000 with the following stipulations - what would you do with it and why?

1. The money has to be used for something frivolous - NO bills!

2. The money has to be used by your for you - you CAN'T use it for anyone else including your SO.

I would get a puppy and use the money for obedience training and a dog walker for the first six months or so.

I have wanted a puppy forever!

I would do laser hair removal on my legs and then if there was any money left over, I would do my arms.

I would buy a pair of diamond stud earrings and a necklace to match. I've always wanted diamond studs - and am VERY jealous that Angela (luvincowgirl) has a pair and I don't! LOL!

What kind of puppy do you want? My neighbors just got the cutest little bulldog. He's about the size of a throw pillow - all pudgy and wrinkley! He is so cute!

That's a good one! I didn't think of that one! And think of all the money you'd save on waxing or shaving cream and razors and TIME in the future!

i'd get an elliptical crosstrainer and a flat tv for my "home gym," which right now is basically a small extra room where i keep my handweights and miscellaneous little stuff like that. hmmm, that might go over budget a bit, but i'd throw in the surplus out of my pocket!

And I would actually be comfortable wearing shorts outside my own home. Fair skin and course, fast growing, curly, black hair is not a good combo.

The flat screen TV I'll let you have - but an eliptical cross trainer?! That doesn't sound frivolous! That just sounds painful!! LOL!

well, it's all relative! compared with dragging my butt to the gym to work out or running outside, it would be a treat!

Well that's true. You are more disciplined then I ever could be! The actual thought of dragging my butt to do any sort of work out makes me exhausted! LOL! I take the stairs at work - and I consider that my workout! God only knows how I have managed to stay 120 lbs my entire life...I should be 220! LOL!
