A million dollars


If someone handed you a million dollars, what is the first thing you would buy for yourself? I dont mean money that you would give out...I mean something that you would buy just for you.

I'd spend half on things made of stones, yep a a run down mansion out in southern USA, or a run down castle in Eastern Europe ...
and spend most of the other half doing it up and turning it into more than it was, better than its former glory.
You know just for something to do.
But I'be make sure I had enough left over to buy something special for you, Just for You!

Catch said...

Q~ Sweety you are just too good to me ~ sigh ~ thank your little pea pickin heart for even thinking of me!

Catch said...

I would buy a house right on the beach in the Carolinas......it would have lots of windows...I would be able to see the ocean from all the rooms...I would be able to hear the surf at night out my bedroom window. It would have like 12 bedrooms and bathrooms so we would never be crowded when my family and friends were there. And I would have my fantasy of having 2 men at once.....one doing the cooking in the kitchen and one doing the cleaning!! ; ))

Catch,
I'd buy a 900 year old house in the southwest of France. I'd give you tickets to come visit when ever you want.

i want a house big enough for all of us. one that each child would have their own space. i own my house right now and it is a mess. not in the sense of messy but their is mold in the basement from last yrs flooding. the bathrooms don't work properly. i have bare floors etc..etc... i had 2 companies, as determined by the mortage to do, inspect this home. their inspections were not the cheapest, one was 350 and the other was 250 and they both said, this was a great buy. well, guess who lied bit time, and nothing can be done. their fineprint, as it is with all of the inspection companies gives them no liability for anything going wrong..and the moratage companies or bank still request them...dumb.
i would also just as fast buy airline tickets to Miami. i want my grandma to see and meet my kids, she is getting older by the day.

Tina Dray said...

i'd by a big house in the country with a big plot of land so i could set up an animal sanctury for all those poor animals out there that no one loves

smileymamaT said...

Ahhh, okay. Good question..so we're saying, after the college money, taxes and charity money and giving to family members in need is all taken care of......what would I buy for myself? Oooh, the possibilities. A week at a resort in Disneyland. A trip to Italy just for me and hubby. A maid service. A new front for my old house. (I really like where I live so I'd stay here)....a new wardrobe. New furniture. A boat, maybe. A little beachside cottage for my mom. A new car. A new adapted van for my good friend LauraJ. A mega-trip to my local SuperStore for lots of groceries. Pay my oil bill for 20 years in advance. Okay, I think I'll put the rest in the bank and think about it......thanks! That was fun!

Joe & Karen said...

Good Morning Catch. The first thing I would buy, an open ended plane ticket, to fly back and forth to meet everyone in blogger land. Then I would buy a pet ferret, because I've always wanted one.
Thank you for inspiring me to keep going everyday :)

Lori's Minute said...

I would pay off the house so hubby would not be stressed out supporting the family, I would go swim with the dolphins at least once, and I would buy a bubblejet, old fashion jukebox from the 50's. I would also get a new treadmill and spend the money to get my hair done once a month because now I only go about twice a year.

LauraJ said...

Buying land to build a house fully adapted to meet Aaron's and my needs! Then I'm not sure what I'd do with the rest.

Catch said...

Rel~ thank you for thinking of me....would I be flying first class? ( lol)

Chana~ wouldnt it be fun to spend a million dollars???? it would probably take me at least a whole day! lol

Tina~ that would be nice Tina and I know all those poor animals would love it.

Smileymama~ if only we had a million dollars!!!! what fun it would be!

Karen~ it would be so great to really meet everyone wouldnt it...my son used to have a ferret....it was mean, it would bite. I think you have to get them when they are really young and then you can train them to be lovable.

Lori~ paying off a mortgage is the smartest thing a person can do. When my Father passed away and he left me some money, I went straight to the bank and paid off my house...it was one of the best things I have ever done. Some people said they would take a long vacation and buy a brand new car...for once I was thinking very practical!

Laura~ I so wish you could get a house like that for you and Aaron...and a tv with no knobs so you wouldnt have to take the knobs off...lol

~Deb said...

A modest house where I could live off the interest. Now that's something I've always wanted!!!

Eh, gotta play the lotto again!

Pixie said...

Have to be a house.
Then Sex and the City complete box set ;)

bazza27 said...

I'd buy my own island, so every now and again I could get away from all of wifey's animals. I would of course take wifey and the kids, but no bloomin' animals.

Christine said...

What's cute in our family, my MIL and husband both play the LOTTO,they never miss a week. Each of them telling eachother, that if they won, they'd take care of our whole family. What's sad is 1 million isn't very much anymore, considering houses in CA are that much for just 1 30yr. 2BD/2BTH house.
If it were me for myself, I'd take my husband to Hawaii, get myself a whole day at the SPA, and buy myself a Jaguar.I hardly every buy anything for myself anymore.

QUASAR9 said...

Well I don't mind doing the cookin every now and then, but I'm thinking you'd have to get a cleaner in to be your second man.

Hey 12 bedrooms that's a lot of cleaning, and a big family. I hope they are into bar-b-q because that's all I know ro cook for more than two.

QUASAR9 said...

But when it's just the two of us left alone you can bet your life I can rustle us up something finger licking good, and I mean finger licking good. lol!

hope you like strawberries and cream tooo

Catch said...

Deb~ that sounds like a great investment!!!!

Pixie~ I might have to get that sex in the city set myself...I loveeee Mr Big!

Bazaa~ lol..I understand Bazaa, you are not quite the animal lover Tina is...lol

Christine~ Nope a million bucks dont go too far anymore but Id sure like to try to spend it! lol

Q~ barbque is fine...as long as its tasty. And I do like strawberries and cream, Im thinkin since your not that good at cookin and cleaning maybe you could be the pool boy? ;))

Phats said...

A plane so I could travel to all the away Purdue football and basketball games :)

Catch said...

starbender said...

definately a trip around the world!
...and then I could meet all of You my friendly bloggers!!!

Mimi said...

I would get the most expensive day of spa pampering I could buy. Massages, facials, pedicure, manicure, the mud bath things. All of it.

Bluepaintred said...

a wireless laptop and then CHOCOLATE

can you do me a favor?

(taken off tiny voices in my head, linked in my blogroll) I was surprised at how many of you didn't have a site feed though. What's up with that? If you're with Blogger, it's easy to set up - just go into Settings -> Site Feed and select "Full". Otherwise, you can make a feed in minutes at FeedBurner.com. Now, don't say I never taught you how to do anything. :D


i never know when you have updated .. please check this for me!!! im always the last to comment, and usually a day or so late... I hate that

Bluepaintred said...

hmmm ok thats what you do, but I didnt tell you why I wanted you to do it LOL its so my blogroller thingy tells me when you have updated!

lol

Gingers Mom said...

A housekeeper! Good bye dirty socks and dingy floors! I am off to the spa!

Michelle said...

I think the first thing I would buy is a "dream" home - or a vacation home! It's nice to dream :)

Libragirl said...

A 6 month stay at a "spa" and then a perfect kitchen to have someone cook for me and a gym to have someone force me to workout and someone to do my hair everyday. (all in rooms in my house)

Kayla said...

I'd spend 20 million and land a spot on the next shuttle flight!

Canada's Coach said...

If I won a million, I would book a week - at least a week, at a spa and have one massage a day - at least one - and a lot of pampering.

Dr.John said...

Catch said...

DR John~ great idea!

Canada Coach~ I would have a week at the spa too!

Kayla~ Now hon, youve overspent by 19 million!The bank is really gonna be mad at you! lol

Libragirl~ yea, having someone fix your hair everyday would be kinda cool..usually I just blow and go...lol

Michelle~ its always fun to dream and when I dream I like to dream big!

Gingers Mom~ A housekeeper goes without saying!!! we all need one of those...lol

Blue~ I have no idea what your talking about chickie...lol...but I did go into my settings and it was on " full"....but I dont know all this blog lingo.....so maybe if you could explain it like you would to your youngest child..I may be able to grasp it! lol

Catch said...

Star~ wouldnt meeting everyone be the coolest thing ever???

Mimi~ you dont need a spa with that natural beauty of yours...your complexion looks like you just stepped out of a spa! Im not saying thhis b/c your my friend, Im sayin it b/c its the truth.

Miss 1999 said...

A nice big house, where I could live comfortably with my husband and cat :0)

Cindra said...

I'd buy a sailboat, and a house at the coast, and a hybrid car.


Oh, hey! Don't forget to vote for me at belleofthebrawl.blogspot.com

Catch said...

Cindra said...

Honey, you gotsta click on the vote button down on the right side of Sar's blog...make sure my caption is the one that is "checked" and then push vote...you can do it! Thanks...

Mimi said...

You are too kind! But I want that massage! LMAO!

Sar said...

A new car! I would so ditch the mommy mobile (read minivan) and get a sedan.

Then I'd go on a shoe & purse shopping spree....in Paris!

I haven't given this any previous thought.

:P fuzzbox said...

A vette and some hair.

~Macarena~ said...

A fuzzy pale pink car interior, like the pimp car in Austin Powers in Goldmember (I think).

Catch said...

CindraJo~ I did it!!! I got it right this time..lol

Mimi~ Ok girly....we will see that you get that massage!!!! lol

Sar~ thanks for visiting....your gonna need a Jag to go with those new shoes and purses ;))

Fuzz~ Sweety, you dont need hair...weve seen your pic....you got it going babe!

Macarena~ you could always sell Mary Kay....they give out pink cars!!!! ;))

Bluepaintred said...

well then if its already on full, there is nothing more you should do. what I am going to do is go change MY settings to show new in the last 12 hours instead of six hours. people must be updating during a time when I am away for longer then six hours

Phats said...

I am not picky Catch i'd take half a million too :)

The Elusive Loo said...

A house. I live in a static caravan at the moment.

~Macarena~ said...

Catch, I can't. I don't know from makeup, and my beautiful Stallion is my favorite color. Pink is my second-favorite, and I just love the fuzzy girliness of that interior. I might want tiger-print seats or floor mats as well.

Betty said...

Dr John already said buy the house but we have moey left so I would get a housekeeper and that loaded Montana that the corner garage is advertizing.
