Meet everyone with this week's Get to Know YOU Question!
This week's question is:
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

Laurie, from Created by Laurie, says:
I would pay off our debt, our Father's Debts, and set aside money for our boys for school.  After that I would probably give back whatever was left over to the community and charities.

MY answer:
Pay off any and all debt!  Gotta take care of the responsibilities first, and then I'd fix up the house a little...Maybe some tile floors, new window coverings, fresh paint.  **sigh**...Wouldn't it be nice?

Marci, from Stone Cottage Adventures, says: Tithe!

*Featured Guest*
Laura, from Laura Ashton, says:
If I won the lottery the very first thing I would do would be to pack up all my art supplies and hop on a plane to an exotic destination with my lovely man.  Once there we would check into a rustic yet luxurious resort..(You know something like those little huts on stilts above the water).  Once settled we would go enjoy fabulous spa treatments followed by a meal full of local cuisine.  Then the next day we would set out into the wild and see all the wonders of nature.  There I would avidly sketch all the exotic plants, animals and birds.  Of course there are many other things I would like to do if I won the lottery, including giving back to my community and being a strong supporter of nature conservation.  And then the responsible things too, like sharing with family and friends buying a house and paying off any debt.  Debt?  Did I say debt?  Who in this day and age has any debt??  Just kidding, we all know who we are.  lol.

And now it's YOUR turn to answer.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

Now link up and have fun!

If I won the lottery I would pay off my debt and immediate families debt. Then I would have a nice celebration dinner and take out all my friends and leave the waitress a really big tip!

I know i'm supposed to so I'd pay off all kinds of debt, but the FIRST thing I would do is build a barn and buy a horse!!

If I won the giveaway, I'd pay off the piles (and piles and piles) of bills and loans and then buy a house. I really want a home to raise our son in, and fill with more children. Hopefully someday :)

And as a side note, excited to see Laura as a featured guest. She is the best!

Thanks for hosting this hop, I totally love blog hops!
And if I won the lottery I'd probably pay off my student loans, buy a new car and set aside money for my daughter's college fund so that she doesn't have to go in debt trying to get an education. :)
Have a nice weekend!!

If I won the lottery, first take care of finances, then a new house, build an awesome photo studio, travel and get a horse! I love horses, I've wanted one forever!

Thanks for Hosting. If I won the lottery? This depends how big is the amount. If its a substantial amount, Buy a house and lot. Fix my Mom's house. Invest health insurance plans. Bring the whole gang to a nice place. Save some money. Give to church, charities and maybe help others who are in need. Phew! that's a lot of things to think about.

There is so much I would do! The first thing would be to hire an attorney and money expert. Of course I would pay off all our debt, my kids and parent's debt, and take a nice trip to think about all the possibilities that are ahead!

Back to the sewing room....

If I won the lottery I would give 10% to my church, I would go on a very long vacation with my husband and then I would gut my house and re-do the entire thing!

If I won the lottery, I would pay for college for me and the bf, get our own place and get myself a car since I don't have one. And donate the rest to charity and animal shelters.
