Buy lots of candy, ice cream, canned nuts, juices, fruit - fill the freezer with some favorite cuts of beef, seafood. Get a pedicure-good hair cut, quality make-up, lotions, perfume, new cloths. --- Bought myself fresh cut flowers

This has been a great thread to read. I won't get my first nursing Paycheck for a long time (about 2 years), I have worked before though and had paychecks, but this will all be play money I am making, unless my husband doesn't shape up and than it would be starting over money LOL.

Ok so I have no idea, hubby is supposed to be paying for a Vacation for me and my mom to Europe for graduation before I start work or if I get a job right away when I can have my first 2 weeks vacation. I can pretty much get what I want (within reason) as it is so I don't have anything I have really been wanting.

I guess I would spend it on something fun for me the husband and the kids for all we went through to get me through nursing school, all the sacrifices made, especially the kids. So would see what THEY would really like to do and do it. My kids really want a vacation to Mexico or a Disney Cruise, so would take more than the first paycheck but maybe save up a few and treat them to that. They are great supportive kids and have earned it. After that it's saving for college for them and savings for us and play money. With 4 kids you can't provide a lot of the things like College and stuff without a lot of preparation. Well unless your rich. I also hope to be able to give them down payments for homes for wedding gifts or something equivalent depending on what path they take.

hmm. this is such a good question, i don't even know. there are so many things I'm sure we all have been deprived from that for sure I'll be blowing it on silly things. A vacation will be nice which I'll start planning one because all this hard work and sacrifice deserves a good deserving break Away from all the books. I won't make a list which I'm sure by the time I get done, I will forget about it and just buy things on impulses. But for sure, a vacatation.

Can't wait. . .

Well, first I'd like some of those fancy men's nurse shoes that have lifts. I wanna be 5'10" darn it! :p And some really nice fabric for scrubs (the really soft stuff) -- even though it will probably get puked on sooner or later haha.

Then, send some to my favorite charities and pay some bills.

I can hardly wait.
