    OK so I went overboard....

    You guys will like this. We were at our HS football game (last game of regular season, Go T Birds!!!!) last Wednesday night and I did something I don't normally do - I bought a 50/50 raffle ticket. And I WON!! $248!!!!
    So I immediately donated $50 to the North Branford Cheer Club (DD is a cheerleader), then each family member got $25. And I got a haircut.

    Then I went to Joanna's Saturday.

    I BOUGHT 46 YARDS OF FABRIC. I got 3 yards each of 11 different colors and 13 yards of blizzard fleece to make no sew blankets for the 3 kids and one for myself.

    I thought I was bad wandering around with all these bolts to be cut but apparently one woman came in and bought enough blizzard fleece to fill 12 large bags!!

    And I can't fit any more fabric in my closets.

    I think i am a hoarder!!!!! Or nuts.......

    Oh, geez, what would you do if you won the lottery which is up to $500,000,000?

    You could buy me a HQ Sweet Sixteen and I'd be REAL happy!

    Seriously, congrats!

    Good for you! Whenever I get unexpected income I treat myself. I have a gift card right now that I'm trying to decide how to spend. Not as much as you had so I'm weighing my options carefully.

    Congrats on your win, and I like the "everybody wins!" way you spent it. As for the storage - sounds like you'll be moving a bunch of the fleece out pretty quickly...

    Funny I should read this thread ...as I was just sitting here thinking about what I would do with the money if I won the BIG lottery that everyone is talking about! What was my first thought...yep fabric..LOL. I don't play the lottery but the thought was fun. So glad you were able to enjoy your winning! Congradulations.
