She has two jobs, two kids, an unemployed boyfriend, and 27 million dollars. Which of these things do you think will survive the weekend?
This hardworking, single mom is Michigan's $66 million lady.
A 24-year-old Port Huron woman hit it big, winning the Mega Millions jackpot in June and hauling in a lump sum of $27 million after taxes, the state's lottery announced Thursday.
"When the clerk at the store told me I had a big winner I was positive that he was mistaken," Zachow said in a statement. "There was a long line in the store behind me, so I decided to leave and looked the numbers up on MichiganLottery.com when I got into my car. That's when I realized I had won the jackpot and could barely breathe."
Zachow raced home with the winning piece of paper and shoved it into the hands of her boyfriend, Billy Bartlett.
Her beau of three years has been unemployed for nearly a year.

"I have always wanted an electric blue Ford Mustang, and one day I will get one, but helping my family live comfortably comes first for me," Zachow said.
In an other article, it said that Zachow hired a lawyer and financial planner before collecting the money to ensure that she handles it wisely.
