$50,000

No, I'm not giving away $50,000, but keep reading anyway.

After a few glasses of wine last night, Tricia's fault, Brandon proposed a question.

"If I gave you $50,000 and told you, you must spend it in one weekend, what would you do?"

I of course said I needed to research first, to see the best possibilities and get the best deal.

He said, "NO. Just tell me what you would want to do."

I thought for a minute and decided upon a plan of action.

I would fly in a family member to watch the children. Then Brandon and I would board a plane and head off to a sunny beach. We would eat fabulous food, drink cocktails poolside, rest and swim. We would have spa days everyday, maybe a few times a day and then go shopping. We would buy art work, paintings and sculpture, to remember our trip. Then once we were completely rested we would head back home.

Brandon said, but you have to spend it all in one weekend and that trip wouldn't do it.

He under estimates MY choice in hotels and my super natural talent of picking the most expensive piece of art in every place that I enter.

What would you do with $50,000?

Can you say "BMW 750i Sedan"?? Of course, the $50K is only the down payment! You need to write a book...
