Are you ready to start the “Rich Life?” (Giveaway ends 2/4/16)



I think most people like to daydream from time to time about what life would be like if they were rich. I think it’s only human nature to think that way from time to time. Sadly, most of us will never know what it’s like not to live paycheck-to-paycheck.

My husband and I get into discussions all the time about what we would do if we won the Lottery and were suddenly millionaires. Would our lives change? If so, how would they change?

Thankfully, my husband and I are simply people. By simple I mean we couldn’t care less about designer labels and fancy cars. We’d never want to own a mansion or a yacht.

If we won millions of dollars the first thing we’d do would be to buy a house. After living in a tiny condo for the past 20 years, owning a house with a yard would be a dream come true.

We wouldn’t want a massive house either. Just a normal house in a nice, quiet neighborhood.

We’d plan a drip to Disney World, and maybe I could talk my husband into a trip to Wales to visit with my cousins. A trip to California and Texas would also be on our list.

We would also like to buy new cars. I’m actually content with my PT Cruiser. My hubby wants a four wheel drive vehicle, so we’d probably buy him a new car, and cars for our teenagers.

That’s it. That is pretty much what we’d do aside from charitable donations and helping out family and friends.

What would you do if you suddenly became rich?

Entenmann's Sweepstakes

Entenmann’s would like for YOU to “Start a Rich Life” with their new Entenmann’s’ Start a Rich Life Sweepstakes.

Entenmann’s® Bakery has a rich history of scrumptious baked goods that date back over a century. Mr. Rich Frosted, the iconic Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Donut, was introduced to the Entenmann’s family in 1973 and has been the Entenmann’s #1 selling donut since. The Rich Frosted cake-style donut is covered in rich, wonderfully smooth, chocolatey frosting, take a bite and hear the crack of the Rich Frosted shell and enjoy the delicious soft yellow cake. The Entenmann’s family of donuts includes Crumb Topped donuts (aka Mrs. Crumb) in addition to seasonal favorites like the Lemon Crumb, Harvest Pumpkin and Cider Donuts.

Funny story… my brother LOVES Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Donuts. Whenever he came home for a visit from California my mom would buy him a box of these donuts. Whenever we saw Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Donuts in th fridge we knew he was coming home for a visit. LOL!
