The other day I made a video with my love about what we’d do if we ever won the lottery and we had so much fun making it I thought that I’d do a little follow up and further explain my choices since we were a bit jumbled in the video and immersed in thinking about what it’d be like to actually have millions.
I would fix up my parent’s house.
This is the first thing I would do. I feel like most people would buy their parents a new house which is AMAZING but the reason I’ve decided fixing their house up would be a great idea is because I feel like even if you won the lottery, in northern California, in Silicon Valley, you’re better off fixing the house you’re in. I don’t know what happened to the place I grew up but I noticed even before I moved away that living there was becoming unaffordable. When Ali and I were living there together we were thinking about buying our own place, thinking that we’d be in California forever. To our surprise, one bedroom apartments in average areas were at about $600,000 to start so this is why, if I had the money, I would fix up their house. I’d also install air conditioning cuz NAH AH CHICA I remember those summers full of boob sweat and wanting to punch anyone who was within one foot of me with their body heat.
I would then take all of my loved ones on a month long vacation at Disney World & somewhere tropical.
The reason I’d want to do this is because all of my family and friends are all over the world and it’s rare that everyone is in the same place. Come to think of it, I can’t remember a single time where every single person was in the same room. Closest thing was our wedding but even then there were a few people I really wish could have been there to celebrate with us.
My dream would be to be able to afford to pay for everyone’s flight and stay at Disney World’s Boardwalk Inn because that’s where Ali and I stayed on our Honeymoon and the boardwalk itself is adorable, not to mention the PIZZA at the hotel. I’d love to go on all of the rides together and meet up for dinner since I know every single person who would go would enjoy themselves because if there’s one thing my closest people and I have in comment, it’s our love for Disney. Then I’d love to take everyone to a tropical place to just relax, sip cocktails and spend all of our time at the beach. I don’t think there’ll ever be a time where everyone is together at the same time so this would be a dream.
LORT DO I HATE CLEANING.
I’ve always loved organizing things; putting everything in their own little place, labeling folders, planning trips, scheduling my week, folding my clothes the same way, taking notes and rewriting them just so they look cuter… LOL. But when it comes to washing dishes and cleaning the bathroom, no thank you. I mean I still do it but it’s really not my favorite thing to do. Ali usually cleans the bathroom because he’s less bothered by it so if it ever gets to the point where we could get help with this that’d be amazing.
I’d hire a hair stylist to do my hair.
This is exactly what it sounds like. I’m not great at doing my own hair and this is one of those vain things where I know I’d be more motivated to do ANYTHING if my hair was cute. TBH I probably wouldn’t even have someone do that every day so maybe this one is a waste? Maybe we can throw in a person do to my makeup too.
Aside from the selfish things I mentioned, I really would want to give back to the world.
I’d want to save the bees, endangered animals, pay of any debt my friends and family might have, donate to charities like St Jude’s Children’s Hospital, cancer research, pay for people’s health insurance, and I would absolutely love to pay for people’s tuition fees and pay off student loans. I never got the chance to go to college full time and get a degree (but still want to) because life happened. HOWEVER I would love to see more people get the chance to enjoy life with one less thing to worry about.
What would you do if you won the lottery?? Let me know in the comments or even link me to a similar post as I’d love to read what you have! Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
