GIVEAWAY!!!! Top 100


So much to do, so little time. When Greg and I were just friends I remember talking about our "top 100"; the things we wanted to accomplish in life before we died. Up until that point we knew that we were great friends, but once we had that conversation we knew that we were truly kindred spirits. Our hearts literally mirrored each others. 

This February I designed the "Top 100" book- a book in which you can chronicle the top 100 things you want to do in life. 


Each line has a blank where you can write a description of your top 100 and a place where you can write the date in which you accomplished it. 



Here are a few photos of some of our top 100.
{Prayer at Vatican City Square}

{Kiss in front of the Eiffel Tower}

{Listen to Big Ben chime}

{Ride an elephant, not at the Zoo}
Outside of Bangkok, Thailand

{Boat ride down the Amazon River}

Now it's your turn!  Tell me one of your top 100 and  I will send the winner who has my favorite answer a free top 100 book in the mail! Just comment on here and be sure to leave your name.  We will be announcing the winner one week from today: Friday, May 1st.

Hmm, top 100. I would probably have to say that one of the top things I want to do is build a house for my mother. This is kind of a necessity for me. The plan is this- to buy some land in relative proximity to me- close enough for babysitting and all :), and sit her down with an architect, construction company, interior designer, horticulturist/landscaper, whomever else with one rule: tell them exactly what you want- no limits. What she'll get is the house of her dreams, and what I'll get is the opportunity for my mother to get something she absolutely deserves for all the sacrifices she's made for my family.

I would like to own my own clothing company, and after the success of that company, I would like to take the people who work in the "sweat" shops in foreign countries and give them better jobs and places to live

Hey, This is Tammie Garcia!

I was JUST talking about this with Josh (boyfriend) last night. One of the things we were would LOVE to do is pay for someones groceries and bless a family. To just be standing in line at the grocery store and not letting them worry about paying.

One of my top one-hundred is a long stretch, but I think I can eventually do it.

I want to see Steven Spielberg at a screening of one of my movies. :-) (*and I'm crossing my fingers hoping he likes it....*)

To live in another country sharing Jesus for an extended period of time, with my husband and children. And to go along with that, see my children play with little black/dark children who can't speak the same language!!

I want to take my Dad to India with me one time. It's by far my favorite country, full of the people closest to my heart. He's never seen or been a part of anything I've done "ministry"-wise and I would love for him to experience it...

One of my top 100 things is to start or fund an orphanage in India. That is one of the more ambitious goals I have. :)

my husband and I to go to times square for the "times square kiss in" on August 14th, and take a picture, like the famous one with the sailor hat on and the rose in honor of the anniversary of THE END OF WWII. So adorable, and fun! (We've both never been there!)

One thing on my top 100 is to start a dog rescue/training facility for large breed/giant breed dogs. I would take them from the pound where we got our dog, Spooky, from (it is high kill pound) and then train them to be service, therapy, and police dogs.

Top 100 - I would love to take the gospel to a tribe or village that has never heard the gospel.

I would DEFINATELY have to say my TOP 100 is getting my first book published! I want to write a book that co-incides with "the 99"... dealing with regulary teens who have taken the "Would you be strong enough" slogan and applied it to their schools, friends, & families! I want to inspire, encourage, and change an ENTIRE generation to become the hero's they already R!!!

One thing in my Top 100 is to own property with my Dad. I want my Dad to have his dream property in the wilderness that he can retire. He would love something with 1000+ acres so he can hunt, fish, and just relax. It would also be a great bonding experience for us and I know he would love it.

ashlee said...

mine would be to be totally self sustaining...totally off the "grid". You know grow my own food, reuse rain water, grey water, make all our clothes, soaps, etc...the whole 9 yards:) I keep telling Ronnie we need to build an earthship...he just laughs because he knows Im totally serious!

Ashlee- Greg and I actually did something a little off the grid. We bought a years supply of food. Just the basic staples, Flour, sugar, salt, rice, beans etc. My family always had at least a years supply on hand and we thought it would be a good idea. You know the funny thing? A years supply only cost about $150. Crazy how much excess we have in America.
