April Fools Scavenger Hunt

Posted by Colleen Houck in Contests, YA Scavenger Hunt

 






Hello and welcome to the
April Fool's Scavenger Hunt!


 

I am Colleen Houck



and will be your hostess at this stop.

YOU ARE CURRENTLY BLOG HOPPING ON TEAM RED!



 

For you first timers, the YA Scavenger Hunt is an online blog hop sponsored by authors who write books for both Young Adults and the Young at Heart. Each of us hosts a different fabulous author on the tour. If you came here looking for my bonus material, a short story set in the TIGER'S CURSE world, you'll have to keep hunting.

Did you really think I'd make it that easy for you tigerfans?

Have you already been here?
Are you stuck? Confused? Lost?
All will be well.

You can click HERE to go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to figure out which authors you missed.



It is my good fortune to be hosting author
Willow Cross!



 


I have discovered that Willow is both a dog and a cat person, and, like me, she loves the supernatural, and we both call ourselves storytellers. 

WILLOW'S BIO


 
Willow Cross resides in Arkansas with her husband, two children still young enough to live at home, an enormous cat named Bitsy, and a neurotic dog named Tank. Her home has been known to host the occasional ghost and several of her friends profess to be witches. Although she dearly loves Vampires and Werewolves, they are never invited for dinner.

(I'm thinking I need to schmooze an invite. Her dinner parties sound fun!)



For this hunt Willow is featuring her book called
THE DARK GIFTS: BIRTHRIGHT




Picture 

BOOK DESCRIPTION

 

For one-thousand years, Druid prophecies foretold of a young witch destined to alter the fate of both human and immortal alike. This witch-turned-vampire would be capable of harnessing the supernatural abilities of both and, in a bloody rise to power, would rule with unwavering control.

Unwillingly thrust into a world she never dreamed existed, Liz Markum is catapulted into an ancient war between rival vampire factions. She must choose between those she loves and the ever-present darkness attempting to devour her very soul.

Only one question remains: Will Liz claim her birthright or surrender to the dark gift?

One choice.

One chance.

Two destinies.


AND HERE'S HER BOOK TRAILER!





 

WITHOUT FURTHER ADO
HERE IS WILLOW'S BONUS MATERIAL!


A sneak peek at The Dark Gifts: Legacy.
Third in The Dark Gifts series.

 
Sarah couldn't help but smile as she gazed around the room. Thick strands of garland coupled with the fifteen foot Christmas tree decorating the Citadel’s main hall, filled the room with the heady scent of pine. The tree itself was a sight to behold. Handmade ornaments, snowflakes, and ginger people covered each branch while strings of popcorn and dried cranberries zigzagged around the tree in perfect symmetry. Even without the traditional twinkling lights, it was stunning.

Liz sat near the fireplace across the room in a worn rocker reading Dickens. Scattered around her, numerous children listened with bated breath as she spoke. Anyone on the outside looking in would have thought the scene nothing more than the usual Norman Rockwell Christmas. However, those that cared to take a closer look would likely realize that the children's glowing eyes held more than Christmas spirit.

“Are you happy?” Shad whispered in her ear.

She squeezed his hand and nestled closer to him. “Very.”

He smiled and dropped a gentle kiss on the top of her head. “You know, in a way this is your first real Christmas.”

“Mmhmm.” Her eyes closed as she breathed in his musky, clean scent. “It’s nearly perfect. I wish this moment could last forever.”

Deep down she knew peace of any sort was fleeting in this new life. With that thought, a strange sense of foreboding crept into her heart.
 
 
 

For more information on Willow and her books, check out her Facebook page HERE

Interested in buying the book now? Here's a LINK!


Now for the prize portion. As you are hopping from blog to blog there will be a giant sized letter highlighted in RED. After you have collected all 20 red letters, one from each blog, unscramble them to form a phrase. Enter the phrase at this LINK making sure you put the RED phrase in the RED entry form.

When you have finished with the red team you may want to consider moving onto the BLUE and YELLOW author teams so you can enter to win even more prizes. How you get there is by clicking HERE and then selecting an author on either the yellow or the blue team. Collect your blue or yellow clues along the way and enter the secret phrase in the form. Don't forget that most of the authors are doing their own giveaways as well so there are many chances to win something special.

 

 

While you're here visiting with me you can also enter to win a personal contest I'm hosting. 


I will be offering five handmade bracelets, five copies of the first book in my series, TIGER'S CURSE, and then one grand prize, a very highly coveted one, will be given to one special winner. Not only will this winner be getting a Tiger Prize Pack including the ginormously-collectable-no-longer-for-sale self published version of Tiger's Curse and Tiger's Quest, a handmade tiger bracelet created by my mom, assorted cool stuff and goodies...







BUT...


I also got permission to include an exclusive signed poster depicting early concept art for the upcoming TIGER'S CURSE motion picture! This is a special treat that I rarely give out. Two went to the UK, one was given away during my August Scavenger Hunt, my mom has one and I have one so they are very, very special. Thanks to Raffi Kryszek, one of my movie producers, for this special prize!


 


That's not one but eleven prizes offered here on my website alone AND this is open internationally! Enter my contest here!




 

 
I'll also be sending an advanced reading copy of my fourth book, TIGER'S DESTINY, to a special someone who tweets about the YA Scavenger Hunt this weekend. For easy tweeting go HERE!
The more you tweet the better your chances.

Just make sure you include my twitter handle @colleenhouck in your tweet so I know that you are one of my devoted tiger fans who really, really wants this prize. 

Good luck!

Thank you so much for visiting the
Tiger's Curse website!

Iheartbooks

If I had a million dollars, first I would donate some of it to my Mom's charity organization and to my parish. Then, I would put away, like, $200,000 in my college tuition fund/law school fund. And, who wouldn't want to travel?! I would definitely visit India and see some real life tigers in action ♥ And then go to Paris (my favorite city of all time). Oh, and also probably buy a car. That'd be smart. :)

 

April 1, 2012

BookFreak

If had a million dolars, I would give half of it to two orphanages I visited in South Africa. The living conditions there are really heart wrenching to see, especially in one called the Baby Moses Baby Sanctuary, where half the kids there are diagnosed with AIDS. And with the other half I would Probably use to just travel the world and see exotic places (Including India).

GoldenRose

If i had a million dollars i would probably donate a generous proportion towards cancer research because so many people die of cancer, which a terrible way to die. And then i would donate some to an organisation who helps war victims, 3rd world countries and especially children. No one should have to go through what they have to. ( i know that sounds like something everyone would say but that is what i would honestly do) Finally whatever amount is left over i would place in the bank and use it for something good like if a family member needs help, university fees or even some gifts for myself and others like a car!

 

March 31, 2012

andreadbc

If I had $1000000 (hey, I'd totally forgotten about that song!)... Well, I'd probably donate about 1/3 to charity (probably charities that work with childhood nutrition and education in Perú - where I'm from). I'd also give back to my parents for my education. I'd move to Italy for a year (so that I could finally practice my Italian) and then, after traveling a bit, I'd move back to Lima, buy an apartment and go from there (start looking for a job, etc). Thanks for the giveaway!

Heck, a million dollars is a lot, I could do almost anything!

With the lotto ticket on my mind, I've developed the fantasy of walking into a large bookstore saying, "I'll take one of each, please." Thank you so much for your giveaway! I heard from a little twitter-bird you started this wonderful contest? THANK YOU!

 

March 31, 2012

jill_kaplan

Ok, since I accidentally commented with the wrong thing yesterday. I'm going to try again today. A million dollars. Firstly, I would give most of it to my parents because of all they've done for me. A fraction to the less fortunate in third world countries so that they can learn to support themselves. I'd then buy a house and then the rest would go in the bank for interest :)

Stephanie22

If I had 1 mil I know what I would do with it. I would invest some of it, of course, and use some to help out my family and maybe help me pay some for college. I would use the rest that I hadn't used or invested to donate to an international tiger rescue organization or my local Tiger Haven. I recently read about the tiger's horrible decline on Nat Geo's site. I love these animals and love them even more now since reading your books. I think we should really save this beautiful creature. It also pains me to think that my future children may not even get to see this beautiful species :'(

 

March 30, 2012

I know it sounds crazy but if I had a million dollars I would buy a house close to my daughter's school and the rest of the money I would give it away to Charity including animals charities :)

 

March 30, 2012

Ashterbowden

I would put myself through college, and help my dad and grandmother pay some of their bills that they need help on. They raised me, and if I had a million dollars, I would do my best to make sure that they were at least a bit more comfortable in life. :)

 

March 30, 2012

That's a lot of money! I'd save the half amount of it and use the other half to help my mom expand his business and make it into a printing company :D Gotta be careful with money right? XD

VampireKnight

If I had a million dollars, I would donate it to my choir program. My choir teacher has been such an influence in my life and everyday he makes us laugh and love to sing. Through hard work and dedication we raise money, but it would still be nice to be able to give something back to him and allow him to not worry about how much the new music will cost and how much tuning the piano will cost. The choir is my family and I love them dearly and if this oppurtunity ever arose I would give it to my family so they may prosper even when I'm not there anymore and continue to give my teacher a smile on his face.

 

March 30, 2012

fallenmoon94

If I win $1 million dollar, I would use that money to travel to the state where Colleen Houck lives and see if I can spend the whole day with her. (Which would be awesome!) I never got the chance to meet any of my favorite authors yet, but you would be my first pick. =) I would also use that money for my college tuition, and help my dad built the house he always wanted for when he retire.

 

March 30, 2012

Valeria Andrea

I'd save it in my jiraffe shaped piggy & think what I'd REALLY do with it. Meanwhile, as if nothing had happened. . I'm a very stingy person so, seriously, in my crazyness I give a relative but still real value at money. It won't solve problems but IS useful. So, that's why I'd double think about it. Thi do something meaning ful with it.

 

March 30, 2012

moongirl101

If I had a million dollars, I would pay all my parents bills, continue my education for nursing school, and what ever money i had left i would donate to several charities, (child's hospital, our local women's shelter, and an animal charity.) A million dollars could change my life as well as others. That would be really cool to win.

 

March 30, 2012

I would buy you a green dress! (But not a real green dress--that's cruel!) Sorry--couldn't resist the Barenaked Ladies humor! In reality, I could use some new walking shoes and a spring wardrobe (which would surely bring back the winter weather). And bookshelves! Definitely need more bookshelves! Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

 

March 30, 2012

kmf007

amyrenae

Hi Colleen, thanks for the great giveaways & for organizing this Hunt - so much fun! If I had 1 million dollars (insert evil laughter) I would build myself an art studio, by my Mum some new carpet (she has 30 yr old shag carpet - not pretty!) & I would use some to help save the Tasmanian Devil from extinction.

If I was to win a million dollar, I would probably faint. And upon waking up, be comatose and screaming for joy at sporatic intervals. Once I had the money in hand, I'd first pay off all my debts, then buy a new, reliable car for my family, totally remodel our home, and maybe plan a trip to countries of main interest: Australia, Scotland, & Ireland.

MaggsterRox

IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS... WELL I'D GO ON A BOOK BUYING SPREE, BUY A PIECE OF THE RAINFOREST SO PEOPLE CAN'T CUT ALL THE TREES DOWN, BUY A PLANE TICKET TO GO TO COLLEEN HOUCK'S NEXT EVENT. SPLIT THE REST (IF THERE'S ANYTHING LEFT OVER :) BETWEEN SAVINGS AND CHARITY. WHITE TIGERS ARE HOT! REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY HOT :)

If I had 1 million dollars I would pay off my house, buy some horses, give both my children 5,000 to spend, buy my husband whatever he wanted and then go on an extended book shopping spree where I would purchase ever book on my ever-growing "to read" list!

 

March 30, 2012

TigerLuvr52

If I had a million dollars I would use some to go to college. The rest I would save for when I get older so I would have enough money to keep me going and be a full time author.

 

March 30, 2012

I'd give it to my mom to let her figure out how to spend it. I'd probably waste it all. :)

If I had a million dollars, I would take my family on a vacation around the world. I would also pay off my mortgage. The rest would mostly be saved for my kids education and retirement.

Andrea @ The Overstuffed Bookcas

Great giveaway, and I'm loving the scavenger hunt! If I had $1 million, I'd probably try to save at least half for taxes (can't be to cautious!) and then with the remaining $500,000 I'd pay off bills, buy a nicer, larger house, and start saving for my son's college education. Kinda practical, I guess. But I'd probably set aside a few hundred dollars for a book shopping spree! .)

 

March 30, 2012

Nomes3329

What would I do with $1 million, probably not anything sensible to begin with that's for sure!! Champagne all round!! Then probably impulse buying, just cos I can. Then I'd slow down and try and be wise with what's left!! TRY, but who knows!

 

March 30, 2012

With a million dollars I would give it entirely to the making of the Tiger's Curse movie. Thankfully I don.t need anything and I'm where I want to be so I will lovingly give it to Raffi and Ms. Parent so TC can be the biggest mayor epic movie of all time. :D

 

March 30, 2012

If I had a million dollars I would give it to my mom, because she is the most generous and wise person I know. I'd know she would spend it better than I ever could. :)

RenTigerLover

If I had 1 million dollars I would use it to help my family. They aren't the richest people and are in hard times right now. I would then most likely put the rest in a bank account to gain interest.

I just finished all three hunts. It was fun and now I have a list of new books to read while I wait for Destiny. Thanks!

A Million Dollars is a lot of money for one person. I will prob. get my husband out of the army, finish nursing school. Then travel the world with hubby, then open a Basset Hound Rescue Group on a Farm ( so i can build a big barn full of couch since that all my basset seem to do. ) then give the rest to my family.

 

March 30, 2012

Megita 97

I would help my mom out with bills, car payments, mortgage, and housework(though she would probably argue). Then I would try to help with my brother's college tuition(though HE would probably argue). Then, I would set aside some money for both me and my twin's college(even though he can drive me CRAZY!!!). Whatever I had left, I would save for either a vacation or something special.

March 30, 2012

Laurie

I've never really thought how I would spend $1 million. I think a lot about the first thing I'd do if I won the lottery but not really how I would spend a large amount of money fully. The first thing I'd do would be to buy my complete Amazon wishlist, and then take my Mum's side of the family to Disney World. I'd also give quite a bit to charity, learn how to drive and buy a flat. Not the most exciting way to spend $1 dollars.

 

March 30, 2012

mamalee

Colleen, I am SUCH a BIG pan for the Tiger's Curse Series! I believe i just might die of anticipation before the next book comes out! Thank you so much for starting the hunt as well! It is AWESOME!

kaylatanner10

If I won a million dollars, I would probably go into shock! I would pay off my car, and my fiances truck, I would pay off his medical bills (200k is owed!), I would buy my younger brother a new car for his high school graduation, and make each of my brothers (i have 3) a college tuition savings account. And if I had any money left I would spend it all on books and snacks :)

TheBookStoner

$1 million is roughly 43 million where I am! AAAAH! I'd buy a house (cause I'm only renting) and a car (I don't have one) and a house and a car for my mother too. Then I'd set up a lucrative business and donate some for charity SERIOUSLY, preferably to causes that support education (we need it, I live in a developing country), the rest I'll save for a rainy day.. rainy dayS, cause that's a lot. Yeah, that 's it. Oh... and probably in my house, I'd ask for a really HUGE library where I can put all the books I've read and all those I'm about to read yet.

 

March 30, 2012

StephLikesBooks

Hi! :) Thanks for the giveaway! If I had 1 million pounds I would absolutely love to go travelling. I'd take my mum too, because she's mad about travelling too :) All the typical places like Australia and New Zealand but smaller places in Europe too :) I'd have to keep some in the bank too to save it! I'd probably give some to certain charities that are personal to me. I don't know what else I'd do! :) Buy 1 million penny sweets haha :D

 

March 30, 2012

If I had a million dollars... I would travel the world, and buy a yacht like Mr. Kadam and the brothers! .)

cvelazquez0507

So...with $1 million...first I'd spread the wealth between family. We all could use it. Then, replace my ghetto plymouth voyager that's green with a white hood with the ceiling lining falling down that's pinned up with push pins!! Then probably pay off some debt. Yeah, that one's a bummer...but it sure lightens the load on the shoulders. :)

 

March 30, 2012

abbielacandalo

If I had $1 million, I would pack up my bags and go back to my home country and spend the rest of my days with my family instead of living in another country all by myself to work. :)

WOW Colleen! What an awesome giveaway your doing...excuse me... giveaway-s! And I absolutely LOVE the picture. Also, Willow's book sounds VERY interesting and I look forward to checking it out.

Olivia

I would buy the first American edition of Wuthering Heights from Bauman's Rare Books. It's my favorite book and it's my dream to own that copy. It's $18,000. And then I would use some of the money to travel around the country, going from book signing to book signing. Thanks for the giveaway!

I'd buy many books! And finally be able to build my dream library. :)

 

March 30, 2012

Kristina S

If I had a million dollars, the first thing I would do is split half of it with my parents. They have given me everything under the world and supported me though everything. They put their life on hold to send us three to college in hopes of giving us something they didn't have. My family means everything to me and I love them very much. The second thing I would do, is pay my house off. I would just pay everything off. After all that I would want to travel and see the world. Of course, I would have to get my some books. Maybe build a little library onto the house.

 

March 29, 2012

costrom21

I'd take care of all my friends and family. I'd also donate a chunk of it to an animal shelter I used to volunteer at that doesn't euthanize the animals it takes in.

 

March 29, 2012

Kimberley@sunnykimmylovingllife

Ugh I'm sad :(. I just wrote the longest comment in the history of comments and I don't think it took. Anyway, the gist is that I'm absolutely blown away by your giveaway! You are so generous! I love shifter books and I can't believe I haven't read yours yet. I adore motion picture the poster, it's breathtaking! Thank you for this giveaway! If I won a million dollars I would spoil my mom,dad, sister, grandma and my kid cousins who I adore! I would also buy a house or a parcel to build a house on, because it's my dream to have my own home even if I don't plan on living on my own any time soon. I would also donate money to an orphanage and bring toys and candy by. I love to see kids happy so I think I'd enjoy smiles on their faces. I sure hope they'd be happy. I'd also donate some money to my church because I have happy memories of going there and to sunday school. And I think I'd buy my favorite bookstores or at least a gigantic amount of books. I'd probably have to build a spare room at my house to function as a library. That is another thing that has always been a dream of mine. I would love to build a public library that was actually inviting and amazing and a place that people actually would want to be, instead of some of the dreary, gloomy excuses places that call themselves libraries. Books are amazing things. They allow our minds to travel places they might not be able to go otherwise and they give us a glimpse in other people's imagination. They are awesome and they deserve to be housed in an awesome place that represents them right. The library would be colorful and full of light and comfortable places to sit and a special children's section with even more colors and murals of fairy tale characters. Um, I'm going to stop because I'm getting carried away again. So that was the gist and the actual comment was twice that I think so maybe it's a good thing it didn't get posted. :)

 

March 29, 2012

TigerWhovian

If I had a million dollars I would probably give a good chunk of it to my parents, since they have helped me out so much financially lately, and the rest will probably go towards a new car, some charities, and whatever remains will go into my bank account.

 

March 29, 2012

sassy7

If I won a million dollars...first thing I'd do is buy a house and a bigger car, to fit my growing family. Then I'd pay off all my bills and with the left over money I'd give to charity, most likely Breast cancer foundation. :)

 

March 29, 2012

If i had $1million dollars, i would pay my own medical bills, pay for my own books, which is the biggest expense and buy some stuffed tigers!!!!

If I had $1 million, first I'd pay off my student loans because they're annoying. Then I'd buy a house with an extra room for all my books, and whatever was left over would be put toward filling said extra room with all the awesome books out there right now :) Jessica @ The Midnight Bookworm

 

March 29, 2012

Gabelle

With $1 million I'd give some to charity and invest the rest and probably help out financially for the building of my local church. I wouldn't really make any lifestyle changes. I only really need my family, friends and books to be happy so... Thank you for your generosity!!

March 29, 2012

airlia95

Hmm... if I had a million dollars what what I do? I want to say I'd be super generous and donate it all to charity, but that would be a lie... I'd probably spend a lot of it buying a gigantic new shelf and ordering all the books I've ever wanted to read in my whole life, go on a huge shopping spree, put a few hundred thousand in the bank and donate some of it to to various charities. See, I'm not completely selfish .)

 

March 29, 2012

snmiller05

I would move up into the mountains! Build a house in a meadow an enjoy reading books in a grove of aspens. Listen as the wind rushes through the leaves and the tinkle of a brooke easing its way down. It would be paradise.

 

March 29, 2012

Shadowrose96

If I had that much money...wow, lol. First thing I would do is pay off my students loans, then buy and pay off a car, and then finally buy and pay off a house. I don't think that would take up a million, but that would put my life exactly where I want it and then I would put the rest away for the time being.

 

March 29, 2012

Steph T

Miss Colleen I would first like to say You are the GREATEST!!!! I absolutely adore and treasure your books. But with $1 million dollars I would first begin to pay off my school loans, and help out my parents with bills, buy my lovely 1 year old niece all the Mickey Mouse things she wants and then run to get Tiger's Voyage! and Tiger's Destiny when it comes out

 

March 29, 2012

If i had one million dollars i would buy a thousand dollar amazon gift card for my Kindle, then i would buy my parents a nicer house. And save the rest for a rainy day.

 

March 29, 2012

cybertiger89

If I had a million dollars, I would want definitely not hoard it (like Jinselong, the golden dragon :)) Though I would of course use most of it to pay off college, and would definitely have to go on at least one trip (most likely to India). The rest, I would probably divide among charities. I'm big on saving the rainforests, so I would donate to some good organizations. Ian Somerhalder, from Vampire Diaries, is also big on saving the planet in general and I would donate to his organization- the Ian Somerhalder foundation. Hmm...I am also interested in cancer studies, so would donate to a few prominent leaders in the field. But to spread the wealth from not just suffering or negative issues, I would donate to some kind of fine arts establishment (most likely music). Hmm... I think that would take up the million, very quickly. :) Of course, this is just the plans I have BEFORE I have acquired the million, I am not certain if there is a hidden Jinselong waiting beneath the surface and I end up coming home one day wondering when I got so much clothes and dvds and where an entire million dollars went! (JK!) .D

If I had a million dollars, I would invest some of it and probably buy a little land and build my dream house.

TigersWarp

A million dollars? Hhhmmm . . . probably wouldn't go very far after buying EVERYONE copies of the Tiger's Curse Saga. That would be five books per EVERY person on the planet! Perhaps, just ALL the libraries in the country. That way EVERYONE could have access to them! Wouldn't that be FA-BU-LOUS! JUST LOVE your books, Colleen! I talk them up EVERYWHERE I go. Counting the days 'til September! Love You & Your Books. .o}

If I had a million dollars, the first thing I'd do is tell my boss to have nice life! Then I'd help pay mortgages of family members and close friends. Then I'd buy lots of books and travel (if there's anything left). Then I'd try to get that Barenaked Ladies song out of my head!

 

March 29, 2012

wallflower1294

If I had a million dollars I would put it forth for diabetes research to help out my best friend who has lived with diabetes pretty much her whole life. I know that she struggles with it from time to time because it can be frustrating for her & I'd just want to see her happy & healthy. Whatever I'd have left I'd spend traveling around the world meeting new people..or I'd just probably buy more books. :)

If I had a million dollars, I would start my own wildlife preserve in India. Its been my dream to be a vet since I was little, and this way I could be helping animals, like our favorite...tigers!

 

March 29, 2012

adwblogs

Wow that question is funny since that's what I've been thinking about for the past few days. if I had a million dollars I'd put half aside to save. Then, I'd pay off my debt, which thankfully isn't too much! :D I'd buy a fair amount of books, so many that I don't even want to calculate how much I'd end up spending. .) But mostly I'd give it to my brother to help him through school. He's going to college in the fall and I'd want him to be able to focus on school and not on how he's going to pay for it.

 

March 29, 2012

If I had one million dollars, I would use a good chunk of it to buy books for school-aged children whose parents can't afford to buy them something to fun to read.

Lost.In.Translation

$1million? Pay off my college tuition and loans is a definite first. I would purchase a house somewhere quiet, start my "Beauty and the Beast" inspired library and travel. A LOT! During all of this I think I would try to help my parents out as much as possible and donate to the town I was born in. That town and my parents make me who I am, I couldn't win something that fantastic and not attempt to make their lives brighter too.

emeraldbeauty001

If I had a million dollars there are a few must haves, but yet conservative things I would do. First I would buy a home big enough for my large family of 7. I would have to get dependable vehicles for my Mom, Husband, and myself. Part of the money will go in interest accounts for my four children's college education. The rest I would put in the bank to grow interest and periodically find families that have a real need for help and try to give them what they need. Weather it is a home, car, food, etc. The only condition I would have for the families is that I would flat out by them what they need and it cannot be resold so that they will always have it free and clear.

Being selfish: Buy a house (Make a library section filled with my favorite books) Redo my blog design Have a baby Get a family car Travel to Italy Start a chocolate business Buy my husband that tennis membership If there is anything leftover I will put it in savings because there are a lot of rainy days in Oregon.
