If I won the lottery I would start off by doing all the responsible things that most people say when asked this question. I would pay off my bills, pay off my mom’s mortgage, take a few weeks off work, but specifically here is a little list of the fun things I would do:
#1: Take my family to Ireland and hear the High Kings play in concert!
This is my favorite Irish band. I heard them play live in concert when they were at the Performing Arts Center in Gainesville, FL. If you have any Irish heritage I feel like the homeland (Ireland) just calls to you and seeing this band would be the icing on the cake. I might need to add in a good Irish dark beer and Shepherd’s pie too!
#2: Buy a family vacation house in St. Augustine Florida.
This old city has had my heart since I was a child. My family spend Christmas there one year and I have been in love ever since. We went for a horse and carriage ride on Christmas Eve when the cobblestone street were quiet and deserted. My brother and I were wrapped up in cozy blankets and had hot chocolate and it was magical! There is so much history in this little town along with amazing food and beaches!
#3: Treat myself to some fabulous diamond jewelry!
You have to splurge a little bit right? Here are a few pieces I would make mine!
Those are the three big things that I can think of. Mostly I would keep my life the same. I would still want to keep my job and raise my son in our little cozy home (smaller homes makes families closer right?). Money can buy a lot of things but mostly I would want to buy vacations for my family and more memories to hold on to forever!
What about you? What would you do if you won the lottery?
