I would use the money to help my amazing boyfriend, John move to Las Vegas to be with me. We have been in a long-distance relationship for a year and 8 months today; He had to move to Kentucky after high school to take care of his mom. We haven't seen each other since last February. It would mean the world to be able to see him and to hold his hands again. He has been working so hard all the time, saving everything he can, to move here so we can be together again. By the way, love all of the blogs!! Happy Valentine's Day!! (:

Leilanie said...

Having been engaged before, planned a wedding just to have it end in heartbreak and a loss of money on my part, not his, I never thougt I'd want to get married or plan a wedding ever again. That is until I met my wonderful fiancee. I had just moved to a new town, it took guts and money, but it was all worth it in the end. Because of him and his love I know we should have our special day because our love deserves to be celebrated. Still settling in and planning a wedding is no picnic so this prize would sure help us a lot in having OUR dream wedding.

I would use it on my upcoming trip to Europe. My husband and I are
taking a 10-day trip to several European countries, and this would
help us fit in all of the "extras" we're looking at: a winery tour in
Florence, a pub crawl in Munich and a Gondola ride in Venice.

We've been saving and planning for this trip since we got married,
using it as our "last hurrah" before we take that next big leap
in our lives: babies!
