Lottery

I bought a lottery ticket today. I literally had one of the worst days I've had in a long time so I thought that maybe the stars would aline for me tomorrow since they screwed me over today. The recession has finally affected me. I guess because I'm young and I dont own a house or have any kids I have been selfish with my money and havent felt the effects yet. Well today a lot of things went down that I wont go into to detail about but lets just say I have to say goodbye to my iPhone and its $100/mth plan. That makes me more sad than anything.
I had already made up my mind that for Lent I would give up shopping and eating out. What am I thinking?? I'm thinking about what a challenge it will be and how I will lose a lot of weight and then have a lot of money to buy new clothes. Its a win win. So, about this lottery ticket. I've already decided what I would buy if I ever won. Continuing with the favorites because I've come so far. Let us all day dream a little about what life would be like if we could buy anything we wanted.

#20 An Aston Martin. That would really be my first purchase. I would drive my little Honda up to Atlanta and pay in cash. Since I'd have to go to Atlanta to collect my money anyways, its on the way
.

#21 I would probaby need to buy a house. Since my family lives here I would go ahead and buy a house here. I chose this one, just a little something that I could fix up. Click the photo, its worth it. #22 Now that I have my house on the water in Savannah I need what every good shopaholic needs. A PENTHOUSE IN MANHATTAN. I've thought long and hard about where I would spend my free time in Manhattan. The upper East side seems like its my speed but I also like the appeal of Tribeca or the Village. I was trying to find a picture to show you but they all pretty much look the same. As long as I'm in the city I'd be a happy girl.

#23 I would probably be nice and pay off my friends debt. I'd also invest some into a few historic restoration projects that would make me some money

#24 This list is starting to get boring, me helping people and all. So, since I will never actually be able to afford a pair, I'd buy my weight in Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik shoes. Here are a few that I'd buy first.



#25 I would need a chef, a trainer, and a stylist to help me look and feel great. I'd also get one of each of those for my mom too. Mom, I'll get you a pair of Manolo's as well I know we like to go to Neiman Marcus and try them on. The last thing I would get would complete my happiness. I would get Jackson a few siblings. I would attempt to rescue these breeds if at all possible. Here are my 3 future children. A Goldendoodle, a Welsh Terrier, and a minature Schnauzer.



To be cheesy and cliche I know that a fancy house, an expensive car, and nice shoes wont make my life complete. They will give me temporary satisfaction and those shoes will look amazing but they will probably hurt my feet. If I even owned a house I would come up with the money for a new sibling for Jackson. He truly makes me happy and completes my life. He doesnt know that we are in a recession or that I dont own fancy shoes. He doesnt care if we have a nice car as long as the window goes down so that he can enjoy the ride. So hopefully if I win the lottery I can buy more of the things that truly make me happy and help some people and canines out also.

You could buy yourself a millionaire boyfriend. Sort of perpetuate the money thing that way.

As soon as you mentioned the Manolos, my feet started to hurt!

At least you will be prepared on what to buy if you ever do win the lottery! But it sounds like you have your priorities in order. At least you made the Saucy list!

You've got some big dreams, girl! I think I'd be satisfied with paying off my debt (yay college...).

Erin @ Furry Murray said...

Enjoyed your post. That house is absolutely divine - I'm a sucker for big front porches and tons of mature trees!

Kristy Michelle said...

Oh, chica! I have a Golden Doodle than you can have! Ha. He's a great boy, but sometimes he drives me nuts. As for the iphone, i want to throw mine across the room at least 5 times a day so that may be a good elimination from your life. And your writing is great so you'll always have that (which is waaaaay cheaper than therapy).
