The very first thing I would do I fly my whole immediate family somewhere on vacation and tell them we won and share portions with them, then buy a new house in the country somewhere, I would give some to charity, put a lot away into trust funds for my kids and invest some.

First, I would pay off all our debts, then I would put it away to make sure DH has enough to go to Medical school next year. We are hoping he gets in to a top school so it would be GREAT to not have to take out loans for the cost. I can dream right....

Pay off my house and immediately hire a company to finish the renovations to what I wish I could afford. Then I would be going on a vacation for a few days, alone to somewhere warm.

Change my phone number so old friends and relatives can't reach me.

Then, I would buy my son and his girlfriend a house. Renting is nuts!

Wow that is a hard question!! I would most likely buy something wedding related The next thing I would do is put a lot of it into my son's bank account, then donate some to various charities. Both my fiance and I always said that if we ever did win the lottery, we would make sure us and our families are comfortable and donate the rest.

We are good on our bills. So I think first thing would be to put our house on the market so we can sell it and buy a house with all the things we wish this house had! Big yard, open concept kitchen/great room, and updated bathrooms! Oooohhh what a dream

After that I would have to say tropical vacation time!! Hubby and I never got a honeymoon without kids so I would pay someone in my family to watch our kids for a week so we could go away We take all family vacations so I don't feel bad one bit about going away without the kids!!
