I wouldn't buy a 'new' one - I'd buy another one! 

I'd give 10% to my church.

I'd happily give 10% to my favorite charities.

I would buy a helicopter to fly around town and to that beach house.

I would set my boys' Trust accounts up for life.

And, I'd invest the other 75+%!

BUT, this is all certainly hypothetical  - I've never bought a lottery ticket and likely will never buy one either!

I'd sell my current home and move to our retirement spot and build a small house there. I would not buy bigger. I'd want simpler with less stuff (but radiant flooring, I have to have that!)

I'd still be a real estate broker because I love what I do, but I'd spend more time traveling and learning new cooking styles.

My first thought is 'no', as I love where I live and our house Will Hamm.  Of course I would have access to funds to continue remodeling, and wouldn't have to do '3 Projects a Year' and extend out that timeframe!  My second thought is 'no', that I would not be on TV or interviewed, and would have Legal assistance speaking for me, nor would I leave/quit my job and make it publically known.  I would do everything possible to not be in the public eye!
