Fri, 06-10-2011 - 8:43am's my 5!

A new house! Bigger, but not extremely bigger!

A Range Rover or new Sienna (maybe both lol!)

All new furniture, for all of us!!

Shoes! Lot's of shoes!

I would travel the world for like a month or until I was done seeing everything I've been dying to see! :) (Hello Eiffel Tower and Harrods!)

LOL at your Harrods comment Kate!

Save your furniture shopping budget for your trip there! I am not a shopper, but could have stayed in Harrods for a week straight!

Well, I'm cheap and I'm pretty sure giving me money isn't going to change that! haha

But I would:

1. fix up the rest of my house, then sell and buy a new nicer house (after I've been here 7 years so I don't have to pay back the $8,000 I got 2 years ago from the housing crisis!)

2. Pay to have my parents kitchen remodeled.

3. Just take time off to be with the new baby and DD for a while before finding a new job! (not really "spending" but definitely counts!)

4. Buy 2 new vehicles - one for me and one for DH - both with 4 wheel drive, good gas mileage, and enough room for at least 3 kids (just in case we have one more after this!)

5. FINALLY go on my honeymoon to Hawaii!!! lol

I am SUCH a slacker with these things lately. Ugh. I don't think I'd "buy" things so much as I'd pay things off. And as odd as it sounds, I wouldn't pay off our house because I want the tax deduction every year. I'd buy DH and I new cars (as much as I love mine, it would be nice to have something brand new with no payment). I'd pay off all of our debt, including my student loans, and put a nice down payment on a bigger house.
