Today is everyone's childhood dream, or maybe just mine. What would you do if a big, fat wad of cash showed up on your dresser one morning? With a clear schedule and endless possibilities, what would you do?
Short of finding Aladdin's famous lamp, it is pretty safe to say this is just a dream. But what if money was not a worry anymore? My husband and I still have college debt and plenty of bills to pay. My kids are constantly growing and there is always something breaking around the house. So, if I no longer had to worry about those items the fun could begin.
I am a homebody. I did a fair amount of traveling just after college and loved every minute of it, but I prefer to stay home. I love my family and entertaining, so if I had a large amount of money I would probably hire someone to help me design the perfect yard for hosting backyard parties.
A beautifully manicured lawn, brick pizza oven, comfortable seating and flowering bushes would create the perfect opportunity to entertain friends and enjoy those warm evenings.
I also love to bake and cook during the Winter, so I would also have to give my kitchen and dining area a make-over. Double ovens anyone? The house we live in has ample space, but a face-lift would be welcomed. I can imagine stocking my my pantry with fine wines, truffle oil and salts from around the world.
Think of all the kitchen gadgets I could own?
I am not a fancy car or big house kinda gal. Give me a new dream kitchen, lots of toys and a place to entertain and I would be happy.
