If I had a million dollars

I was struggling for blog post topics again, and was thinking what I would do if I won a million dollars and my post idea was born. So, let's play a game today everyone. If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? Besides the practical stuff like paying off your mortgage, etc.

If I had a million dollars...
  • I'd buy a house just like Emily Thorne's house on Revenge. If you haven't seen the show, Google search it for the pictures. Such a gorgeous house plus it's right on the beach
  • I'd go on a shopping spree and buy things that I would never think to buy myself. Like everything I loved in Lululemon or the most expensive pair of boots.
  • I'd take time off work and go traveling around the world
  • I'd throw a fun and over the top party for my friends where everyone would get a hump back whale {bonus points if you get that joke}
  • I'd hire a personal hair, make up and clothing stylist
  • I'd take my family and friends on a fabulous trip to somewhere warm and sunny
  • I'd buy myself and Mr.D a fabulous car
Tell me: what would you do with your million dollars?


  1. Cool post idea, I may have to use this!

    A million dollars doesn't seem like it would go far these days but I have some ideas of what I'd do. Buy a new house is one!

  2. I would pretty much do your whole list too. I LOVE Emily's house!! It's perfect!

  3. is it bad that I think about this ALL.THE.TIME...I would buy or build a house to my expectations...all the bells and whistles...I would travel...I would make sure my kids were both well...I would buy luxury things...I think I would hire a chef...aahhh dreams!

  4. LOVE that house, I had to Google it but its adorable. I would build our dream house & buy a vacation property somewhere HOT, buy Chad his dream car, volunteer lots, open our own business and yes travel! You can tell I have never thought about this. Lol.

  5. I would buy a house with a good chunk of that money (a new, pretty nice house in my city is about $600,000. I would buy a business of some kind, travel the world, and pay off my sister's house.

  6. You pretty much summed a lot of what I would do. I would take another year off work to be with Audrey. I would run as many races as I wanted and I'd give some to my family.

  7. Ooo, I like this post :) Nothing better than thinking about winning a million dollars! I think I would put quite a bit in savings, but with the rest- I would go an amazing trip to Australia.

  8. I don't know the house, but I'm going to guess that if it is on tv and super fancy, you're going to need more than a million dollars...

    If I had a million dollars, I'd pay off any debt we have, upgrade our car, put a good downpayment on a house, and put the rest into investments. A million doesn't go as far as it used to.

    But if I had TEN million dollars, I'd buy two new cars, go on a big trip, start a scholarship fund, and buy a house and renovate it. Plus I'd donate some more, and do something nice for my family.

  9. I agree with buying expensive boots!! A tropical vacation would be on my list!

  10. Haha I agree with Kristen, can you even get a super fancy house these days for a million dollars?? It's sad but $1,000,000 doesn't seem like THAT much money anymore...

    Besides the practical stuff I would definitely use the money to TRAVEL!! At least two big trips - Japan and Ireland/Scotland probably. I would also refurnish our current townhouse. Our furniture is such a hodge podge of hand-me-downs, new stuff, and new stuff that is now like five years old and falling apart so all new furniture would be pretty amazing!

  11. Love that house on Revenge!! And on the beach - perfect!! I would pretty much do everything on your list as well!!

  12. If I had a million dollars, I'd pay off my student loans, pay off my parents loan on their lake home, buy a condo in the building where I currently live, avoid the move to Charlotte, and spend as much time as it takes to find a job in Minneapolis.


    Oooh, think of all that I've missed!!!

    If I had a million dollars I would plan a trip to the Sea Otter Classic next month. And Id pay someone to grocery shop and prepare healthy meals for me. Like, twice a week. Wash it, cut it up and put it is little containers. I can heat it up - just get it to me!
