Pay off my mortgage, reno my kitchen, take a vacation (not extravagant but nice, maybe $10k), invest the rest.  Similar to a lot of others!

I wouldn’t want to lead a life different than the one I already do. I like working hard to earn things, it makes them more special. I’d definitely pay off mine and my FI’s debt, go on a long, well deserved vacation together, help out our families and friends, put money towards a house and our future/future kids and invest the rest! 

Ahh, it’s nice to dream! 😛

azf0019 :  house reno, probably a vacation, and then stick the rest in savings. Our mortgage rate is really low so I’m in no rush to pay it off since our investments make signicantly more than we’re paying now.

Pay off both mine and FI’s student loans, purchase a home, and then put the rest in savings/investments. That all seems little, but goodness, would $1M make a huge difference!
