Where I Would Spend $400

Today I am doing another writing assignment from Mama Kat. I love her funny writing assignments and it always gives you something to write about!!  The prompt I chose was:

1.) If I sent you four hundred dollars today what is ONE thing you would spend it on and why. ps I want my change.

Well this shouldn't be too hard!!!  First off I would probably put it towards our bedroom/bathroom project.  For those of you that don't know, the people that built our house put wood floors in the bathroom.  Yeah.  So we are getting them ripped out this weekend. Then all this weekend and next week we will be painting both bathrooms. Then next weekend they will be tiling! Currently we are also using hubby's old high school furniture for our bedroom and it's about to break.  So, we are looking for a big dresser and a couple of night stands from Ikea.  I'm going to do a whole other post on this but for now I would buy this dresser:
Or maybe I would save it to put towards a trip.  Hubby and I want to have a baby in the next couple of years and we want to take a unique wouldn't-ever-go-with-a-baby trip first.  I was surfing the internet last night and found this really cool site.  I've always wanted to go to Ireland but thought that it would be hard to see just one thing.  This package was so appealing, one, because it is so cheap and, two, because you can choose where you want to go.  I love love love that it includes a car!

So that's what I would do with an extra $400 laying around.  What about you??

Have a great day!!!


  1. hmmm, what bulding contractors though it smart to put wood in the bathrooms... I sure hope they are paying for your "fixing" their mistake!!
    Anyway, I love that dresser... I always wanted to get white furniture for my daughter, but I'm too afraid she will always get it dirty!!

  2. I like the dresser too. We have something similiar but it's a darker wood.

  3. Visiting from Mama Kats...

    Forget about the house ... go on the trip before you have kids .. cuz it ain't going to happen afterwards. I think this should be advice that all new married couples get ... travel before the kids come! Trust me...I know.

  4. Oh; a trip is a great idea with the extra money! Right now, for me, I'd want to put it towards our play room/loft to help stage it! Its such a mess, but we dont want to spend any money in that room! Realistically speaking, we probably would need to spend the extra money on some landscaping. Ug; what fun is that?!

  5. I love that dresser. Lots and lots of storage space. I have to check out the trip. I have been wanting to go back to Europe by husband is not that into it. Maybe I'll take my mom for her 60th.

  6. The dresser is a cute one! That would be a great purchase. Too bad Mama Kat is stingy and won't really give the $400. :( lol

  7. Good luck with your home renos!

  8. Hey Ashley,
    Born and raised in CA moved to and lived in Michigan for 6 years, Midland and Saginaw to be exact....and I read your first post and died laughing about the hand, and the mitten! Anyway, Take the trip to Ireland! I've been dying to go, didn't go TWICE when the trip was offered to me...paid for and all, I know I'm stupid, now I have two little ones, and have to wait a while now before I go!

  9. The dresser looks awesome and since airfaires and carnival cruises are getting cheaper, I would use the $400 to travel too!

    found your blog via mama kat.

  10. I could do a lot with $400. But I think that I would save it for our trip to Disney in October!
    Great blog and I can't wait to hear about how the bathroom project went.

  11. That looks great! Spacify offers wide range of Dressers and Nightstands
