Probably go out on a nice date or maybe take a weekend trip. The rest I'd put in a 401k.

Give half to parents, half to in-laws, or pay their bills directly since there's a set I wouldn't really trust with money

A new garage door, asbestos abatement (wrapped around old plumbing), repair boiler plumbing leak, about 1/3 would go to income tax, etc.

Invest 1/2 in my 401k, save 1/4, and then use the remainder to go on vacation. Traveling is my passion, so that is what I choose to use all my extra money on.
