Juli Whitehead of St. Peters is a newlywed, and now she's a millionaire, too.

The Missouri Lottery says Whitehead got a card for her 32nd birthday earlier this month but didn't scratch off the numbers until Oct. 19, after returning from her honeymoon. It turned out she won $1 million in the Millionaire Riches scratch-off game.

Whitehead is a special education teacher at a middle school. She hasn't decided whether to take a $700,000 lump sum or the $1 million, which would be spread out over 20 years.
