Dirty Little Secret #3


Dirty Little Secret is a weekly meme hosted by  at Under the Covers. Every Thursday they ask a question hoping to reveal other bloggers "dirty little secrets"

This week's question is:

If you had 600 million dollars to spend,
what would be the first thing you bought?
If I had 600 million dollars I would by building materials and build my parents a quaint but lovely little pioneer cottage like they've always wanted and have it built on the land where our existing cottage sits. I would make sure it had all modern amenities and would make it safe for them as they are aging :)

 
Pioneer log cabin
What would YOU buy first with 600 million dollars?

  8. That's really sweet. Personally... the first thing I would do is set aside some of it so that it generates enough interest for me to live off for the rest of my life. Then, I would start construction on the best house ever. It will have a HUGE library: Big tall bookshelves with ladders, like in Beauty and the Beast, big wooden tables in the middle to work on, a huge fireplace, leather chairs, a raised office space (like Dumbledore's office in the first two films). It will also have a secret bookshelf that slides away to reveal a tunnel. Voice activated "Lumos" to turn the lights on. I'll fill it with original book cover artwork and movie props and it will go under my huge pool and end in a tower that is filled with MORE BOOKS. LOL. Not that I've thought about this a lot.

  16. Cute house. But, if you're planning on it being for them as they age, I'd probably make it one level, unless there's going to be those chair thingies that go up and down stairs. That's something my parents kept telling my husband and I when we were looking for a house, think about how easy it will be to get around the house and keep it up when you're older.

    My DLS for this week.
