I would pay off our car and house and all our credit card debt.

I would pay for all 6 nieces and nephews to go to college.  Place an ivy league education in my sons college fund.

I would find out what my parents wanted and needed-they are in their 70's so I would want them to be comfortable.

I am not sure what I would do frivolously after going on a dream vacation--including renting out Disney World for our family so we coukd explore with no one else there...

I would pay off all my debt, pay off my loved ones debts, put money aside for my DD's future, buy my mom a home, buy myself a home (and maybe a vacation home or two), and make some investments. I would also travel. I'd start with Europe :)

I'd pay off my house. Set up trust funds for the kids. Buy a home in Western Washington for our retirement. Buy my mom a condo and a car. Get DH and I new cars. Buy my Dad a condo and a car. Pay off my sister's mortgages and find a nicer home for my brother to live in. My husband would want to give some money to his family as well. The rest would be invested.

Well, besides paying off bills and looking into owning our own home, definitely work on plans to visit Oregon to see friends and family, but also make some plans to see other areas in the US.

I would give my partners a lot of money. Just because I want too. They could live the rest of their lives traveling or doing whatever they wanted. I would set up trust funds for my kids. I would pay off my house and give it to a needy family. I would move into my lake house and do a complete remodel. I would travel, give to charity, but some fun toys (boat, helicopter, rv, side by side). With that much I would be able to do what I ever I wanted even after investing a lofty amount.

help DD marry her boyfriend, and then assist them to move into a 1st apartment.

I would assist my folks with monetary help.

I would see if DH would ever find a new place to move.
